Here is the proof, as if anybody with half a brain needed it:

Wisconsin played NOBODY. They finally played a top 25 team and beat them. Beat #20 Iowa, ok well done badgers.

Wisconsin WAS ranked number 8 in the coaches poll.

Number 5 Oklahoma destroys the number 6 team TCU. TCU was never in that game and it was over by halftime. They got a few pints to make it interesting, but they were never going to catch up.

So somehow, Wisconsin vaults Oklahoma in the Coaches Poll, leaving OK at number 5 and Wisconsin ends up at number 4? WTF?????

Without Big Ten money and Eyeballs, the playoffs are a regional game; below Mason Dixon Line only. They need Wisconsin in the playoffs. Watch the reffing in the Big Ten Championship game.

alabama-auburn will eliminate 1 sec team.

clemson-miami will eliminate 1 acc team.

wisconsin-ohio state will eliminate 1 big 10 team.

if oklahoma wins out, they're in the top 4.

if something funky happens, i don't know what will happen with the top 4.

This is the reason that the B12 will eventually implode, OK, and Texas will end up in a conference where this wont happen and the rest will be left hanging.

Yeah. Winning while ranked always results in a drop in rankings. Oh wait, sorry I got winning mixed with losing.

It baffles me! At the least, keep us at the same ranking. I can sh!t better rankings compared to what these "experts" pick.

The biggest head scratcher is, how does an LSU team jump into and ahead of a WVU team when they beat an Arkansas team with the same record as Kansas State? Oh, LSU got beat by Troy State too, makes you say, WHAT?

WVU actually gained some 60 or so odd votes, up from last week. What had to have happened was This: There are less votes for teams outside the top 25. Teams that were also receiving votes last week, must have either lost or won big. meaning, for instance, we won, went from 190+/- votes to 250+/- but a substantial ammount of the votes that went to teams not in the top 25 (also receiving votes) last week, are now spread out in the current top 25. We got 60 or so more votes than last week, but other teams in front of us gained a larger % than we did, so we actually dropped one spot. It's a little ridiculous, but we are gaining votes. It's just this week less votes were scattered around to random teams that aren't ranked. Did that make any sense?

While your explanation does hold some water the polls are still sh!t. WVU beats a team with a 5-4 record and loss three games to quality opponents but, LSU beats a team that was 4-5 and they have ONE HUGH bad beat. So how do they jump us by 3 spots? I say it is SEC bias. The best I would give them is 25 or 26 but not 21. And I don't hate LSU, so you can take that out of the equation.

The only poll that matters is the final CFP. Outside of those top 4 teams it doesn't matter how the rest are racked and stacked.

still not ranked in the top 25 in the playoff polls.

it's all political. lsu is only ranked just to give alabama a boost. clemson is 2nd. miami is more impressive at 3rd. oklahoma 4th. wisconsin 5th. auburn 6th.

Pretty much. The new years bowl just pick winners of conferences despite their ranking. Oitside of the top 4 literally doesn't matter

the highest non-power 5 team in the final rankings gets one of the other 4 bowl spots.
