Every week I hear the talking heads say, with a negative spin, FSU barely scraped by for a win. What they should be saying is how amazing it is that a team that has 13 of its starters from last year starting in the NFL this year, a team with the Heisman winner a distraction early and missing a game who is also injured and not as mobile as last year, is WINNING every weekend. Most teams would be thrilled to be 7-5 under the same circumstances. To top it off the committee won't put them in the top spot because they "don't control games". They control the final score pretty well! The new play off system is pretty much the same BS as the BCS...nothing has changed. They are on top of the other polls however.

Contrary opinion here:
Sorry, but FSU sucks compared to almost every SEC west team. The Playoff Committee of Poohbahs is smart enough to get 4 teams that will gain maximum attention for sponsors, so it won't be just 4 SEC west teams playing for the title, which arguably it could be. Best of the rest doesn't include the Seminoles. But undefeated by beating midlevel ACC teams is good enough.

No doubt that the SEC is stronger than the ACC and the SEC pounds each other every week, BUT I'm not overly impressed with them either. The SEC teams play not to lose instead of playing to win, and I don't like that style of football. I only see 'Bamma and Miss SU in the "top 4" conversation (as do the poohbahs). Who are the other two that you see (I see Georgia (E. Div.) as the third SEC team). I think that FSU would beat all SEC teams in the play off (we might find out because 'Bamma could play FSU). If Oregon is clicking though no one will beat them.

If they're on a road to nowhere perhaps someone should be burning down the house

To get this just a little on topic: isn't fsu the sound we hear after running over a tack?

No comments of the pigskin variety.

Even better, the women's world cup is held in Canada with final here in Vancouver. Must buy some tickets.

First appearance for the Dutch women and they barely squeaked in.

Did I read correctly that the tournament will be on turf? Ouch on slide tackles.
As for visiting big events, the 2015 worlds will be in my backyard :-)
That will be fine, and plenty for me.

Not sure if all fields are turf but BC place, home of Whitecaps, is turf and that's where final gets played. Turf is great for highly used fields that service multiple (youth) sports, but not for top level soccer. I always like it when my kids Gold team is forced to experience real grass; completely different game.

Yeah, I'd prefer seeing that one and was thinking about flying over but pooring all moneys and time into Haute Route trip. The mrs would kill me if I took off twice in 2 months.

From ESPN:


FSU = 2 wins against teams with at least 9 wins
Bama = 1 win against a team with at least 9 wins

FSU = Undefeated
Bama = Not undefeated

FSU = from ACC, 4-0 against SEC yesterday
Bama = from SEC, 0-4 against ACC yesterday (SC, Florida, Georgia all LOST)

FSU = scheduled OK State, Notre Dame, Citadel and Florida as OOC opponents
Bama - scheduled WVU, Florida Atl., S. Miss and W. Carolina as OOC opponents

Summary:
FSU has better wins, less losses, better conference, and tougher OOC opponents

More trash talking (hey, it's football!):
FSU slips to 4th in the the Poobah ranking "because they keep having close games against unranked teams". Nothing new there - they've done that all season.
Maybe the real reason they've dropped a place is because their star QB is in the courthouse right now. That's another category where FSU leads Alabama: accused rapists in the backfield.

Bama = from SEC, 0-4 against ACC yesterday

I've used "boobah" several times since you posted it.
