"Four selection to the last four initial rankings made it to the playoffs. There are others lurking. Michigan is fifth alibi Georgia and Oklahoma ESPN's Chris Fowler. I think this committee did what the others had done, which is not exactly mirror. The AP poll with their first rankings? It's consistent now five for five. There's been a little bit of a curve ball. But I'm not surprised LSU ranked. The head of Notre Dame. Obama and Clemson continue to be the Constance and those programs are three for three when they make the initial first four they also make the bracket the batting average for all the other teams in those positions hasn't been nearly as giving us on Notre Dame collapse last year. It was Michigan a couple of years ago. Kirk did mention he thought Michigan controlled it's destiny. I think that only applies if he was -ssume that Alabama's gonna take care of business in Baton Rouge and win the SEC Alabama were to stumble. I think teams to be very nervous because there are very real prospect having to SEC teams in that bracket would loom that would remove another power five conference. Chris owner go back to something you said and the possibility of two teams from a single conference, particularly the SEC one thing that I think helped the committee be able to stomach that last year. Is it those two teams hadn't played under under most viable circumstances. I guess with the exception of maybe an Alabama versus Kentucky or something. You would have a rematch. How do you? How do you foresee that? Impacting the evaluations. Well, I think Alabama just stands almost in a class by itself. And the committees is is so they were to stumble in Baton Rouge. And for example, not win the division, which we see them getting the without winning the SEC west before that big is the exception. If they go back and lose to Georgia. I that would be the debate. Would what would they drop out? Obviously depends on what Michigan the other teams do but I- emails. Multiple emails Reese from Alabama fans this week asking me Fowler. Where's Alabama going to play their semifinal as the presumed top seed are we gonna be an Arlington Miami. That's where they're thinking. Is there already Suming that the red and they get that top spot. I think it's Arlington if that plays out, but that's sort of where Alabama fans are thinking you almost can't blame him for for foregone conclusions. Can you for the third time in the rankings five year history? The SEC sitting atop the first college football playoff ranking of the season, Alabama and LSU, incidentally, meet Saturday Baton Rouge as Chris Fowler mentioned. You'll hear that game here on ESPN radio undefeated, central Florida, which of course, made a case to appear in last season's playoffs finishing thirteen ranked. Number twelve in the initial rankings released to date earlier on ESPN radio ESPN insider Brad Edwards the committee. He has has said for a while that when they look at schedule strength. They they can only base it on who you play you know there. There are a number of times where you know, other like power five teams that had week non conference schedules. And you know, they get knocked by the committee for it. And everybody says well they were supposed to play. So and so but that team backed out, and so they had to go get an FCS team to take the place and all the committee can really do is say, that's that's tough luck. I mean, we can't give you credit for beating a team that you didn't play. We can only give you credit for beating you know, who you did beat on the field and same thing with UCF. I mean, look they've had bad luck in that. They've they've scheduled ACC teams the last two years. They did beat Pitt this year, but two years in a row they also had a game against an ACC team that was canceled due to weather last year at Georgia Tech. This year was North Carolina. But even still those aren't that the caliber of power five teams that are really going to get you a lot with the committee. So so some of it is is just good fortune. As far as scheduling a team that when the year comes up with the game startling played that they happen to be good in the case for UCF. They haven't ended up scheduling the best teams that they could have it's not their fault. But that's that's the way it goes and the schedules. Just I it's not what it needs to be if the committee's only looking at this season, and that that that's kind of keep our I on down the stretch because look that Houston team actually that was let me forget Houston, south, Florida, Cincinnati all the rest of the teams in their conference are unranked by the committee, which which tells you that at the end, I mean, maybe maybe one of them can pop into the top twenty five, but UCF not going to have a win of substance when it's all said and done, and and so that makes you wonder how much higher can they? Get UCF is twelve same ranking that they had enough final release of the two thousand seventeen ranking tied for the highest by a group of five team, Ohio State opened at number ten after the after falling to Purdue Penn State sitting at number fourteen having lost back to back games to the buckeyes. And Michigan state the big ten's. Final Representative is Iowa. At number sixteen mentioned number seven, Oklahoma. The highest ranking big twelve team they had a list that includes West Virginia number thirteen number seventeen Texas and Iowa State at number twenty four sportscenter allnight ESPN radio and the ESPN app from college to the pros. NFL trade deadline passing us on Tuesday. And in some respects, the rich get richer. The Rams the only unbeaten remaining in the NFL, adding Dante Fowler to the defensive line ESPN insider, Bill Polian Fowler. Had been a disappointment on and off the field in Jacksonville hadn't produced. He was not a starter. And he had some difficulties off the field. So this was a question of cutting ties with a player.

"Of the end zone ending his team's chances for a comeback and ending his chance of staying with the team. Intimate studio. Number four. I'm Jay Reynolds. Glad to have you along. Sportscenter allnight, ESPN radio ESPN app. Sirius XM channel eighty preseason polls. There are weekly polls during the season. But it's the rankings from the college football playoff committee that actually carry the weight come the end of the college football season, Tuesday, the raps taking off initial set of rankings, and it was a starter for no one and Alabama was sitting at the top that crimson tide. Start off number one in the college football playoff rankings. That hasn't always voted well necessarily in the playoff just behind. Clemson have we seen this movie before? The crap is. Let's see who's at number three next to it could be very interesting. The new one loss LSU lost on the road at Florida the great strength of record sitting there ahead of an undefeated team. Yeah. And again that was what I was waiting on. I wanted to see what they gave them credit for your giving them credit for an Auburn win. A Miami went even though those teams now were not ranked and they have free losses of Bill giving them credit for beaten early on and this LSU team. They can correct they're passing sort of like the Kentucky thing with this. But then get a better passing game cookout, Alabama. And you know, what this means to now the fifth year the playoff more than half of the team in the initial rankings from the SEC. Let's see who's at number four. What would assume Notre Dame, and it is a fighting Irish eight top grotesque coming up against northwestern dangerous western team on Saturday night. So those are the teams that start in the top four top four selection to the last four initial rankings made it to the playoffs. There are others lurking. Michigan is fifth alibi Georgia and Oklahoma ESPN's Chris Fowler. I think this committee did what the other had died, which is not exactly mirror. The AP poll with their first rankings? It's consistent now five for five. There's been a little bit of a curve ball. But I'm not surprised LLC ranked ahead of Notre Dame. Bama and Clemson continue to be the Constance and those programs are three for three when they make the initial first four they also make the bracket the batting average for all the other teams in those positions hasn't been nearly as Notre Dame collapse last year was Michigan a couple of years ago. Kirk did mention he thought Michigan controlled it's destiny. I think that only applies if he was -ssume that Alabama's gonna take care of business and Baton Rouge and win the SEC Alabama were to stumble. I think teams would be very nervous because they're very real prospect having SEC teams in that bracket would loom that would remove another power five conference Chris to go back to something you said and the possibility of two teams from a single conference, particularly the SEC one thing that I think helped the committee be able to stomach that last year. Is it those two teams hadn't played under under most viable circumstances. I guess with the exception of maybe an Alabama versus Kentucky or something. You would have a rematch. How do you? How do you foresee? See that impact evaluations. Well, I think Alabama just stands almost in a class by itself. And the committees is so they were to stumble in Baton Rouge. And for example, not win the division, which we see them getting the bracket without winning the SEC west before that I think is the exception. If they if they go back and lose Georgia. That would be the debate. Would they drop out? Obviously it depends on what Michigan the other teams do, but I e mails. Multiple emails. Recent Alabama fans this week asking me Fowler. Where's Alabama going to play their semifinal as the presumed top seed are we going to be an Arlington or Miami? That's where their thinking is. They're already assuming that the red. And they get that top spot. I think it's Arlington if that plays out, but that's sort of where Alabama fans are thanking you almost can't blame them for for foregone conclusions. Can you for the third time in the rankings five year history? The SEC sitting atop the first college football playoff ranking of the season, Alabama and LSU incidentally, meet Saturday Baton Rouge. As Chris mentioned, you'll hear that game here on ESPN radio undefeated, central Florida, which of course, made a case to appear in last season's playoffs finishing thirteen and ranked number twelve of the initial rankings released to date earlier on ESPN radio ESPN insider Brad Edwards the committee. He has said for a while that when they look at schedule strength. They they can only base it on who you play. You know, there are a number of times where you know, other teams had week non-conference schedules. And you know, they they get knocked by the committee for and everybody says, well, they were supposed to Klay so and so but that team backed out, and so they had to go get an F team to take the place and all the committee can really do is say, that's that's tough luck. I mean, we can't give you credit for beating a team that you didn't play. We can only give you credit for beating you know, who you did beat on the field and same thing with UCF. I mean, look they've had bad luck in that. They've they've scheduled ACC teams the last two years. So they did beat Pitt this year, but two years in a row, they also had a game against an ACC team that was canceled due to weather last year at Georgia Tech this year was North Carolina. But even still those aren't that caliber of power five teams that are really gonna get you a lot with the committee. So so some of it is is just good fortune as far as scheduling. Team that when the year comes up with the games currently played that they happen to be good in the case for UCF. They haven't ended up scheduling the the best teams that they could have it's not their fault. But that's that's the way it goes and the schedules. Just I it's not what it needs to be. If the committee is only looking at this season. And that that that's kind of well, let's keep our down the stretch. Because look the Houston team actually, forget Houston, south Florida, Cincinnati all the rest of the teams in their conference are unranked by the committee, which which tells you that at the end, I mean, maybe maybe one of them can pop into the top twenty five, but UCF's not going to have a win of substance when it's all said and done, and and so that makes you wonder how much higher can they get? UCF his twelve same ranking that they had enough final release of the thousand seventeen ranking tied for the highest by a group of five team Ohio State opens at number ten after they.
