I see PSU and Clemson being 5 and 6. However i see Penn st losing a game and Bama/LSU knocking one or the other out so Clemson may get in. Unless they really turn it around I dont see them beating any of the top 4Agree with your first four. Clemson has been pretty underwhelming. Penn State could be in that spot just as easily, IMO.
Clemson will run the table and be in the playoffs. I was just commenting that they are no better than Penn State, IMO, at this point of the season.I see PSU and Clemson being 5 and 6.

Ole Miss fans will tell you that wasn't possible as Ta'amu took Patterson's spot.TTUN is getting embarrassed on national tv again. Sure they got screwed by bad officiating but still look plenty bad on their own. Patterson should have stayed at Ole Miss, way he is going probably won't even get drafted.
The first 4 are realistic options, Shaw isn’t leaving Paolo Alto, Cristobal just got to Oregon and already has the ship righted, Stoops has no desire to go back to college and Meyer was never an option.Matt Rhule, Matt Campbell, Luke Fickell, Justin Wilcox, David Shaw, Mario Cristobal, Bob Stoops and yes, Urban Meyer.
I agree with all of that. I put the first four first, because they are the realistic options. The latter four are names that always come up in big hire rumors, except for Cristobal...who I believe could be swayed by Michigan if they really wanted him.The first 4 are realistic options, Shaw isn’t leaving Paolo Alto, Cristobal just got to Oregon and already has the ship righted, Stoops has no desire to go back to college and Meyer was never an option.
I would go all out for Rhule. He has a strong B1G background and has proven to be an excellent HC to get the results he’s gotten at Baylor and Temple. Campbell would be my back up plan. PJ Fleck would be my wildcard. He’s boom or bust, in my mind. He has the potential to do great things, or flop. Depends on the buy-in he would get from high level recruits. Would they buy his underdog schtick? Can you even do that at Michigan?Out of all those Rhule would be my go-to. What he did at Temple and now Baylor has been nothing short of exceptional. Campbell is right up there. I doubt Fickell would do any better than Harbaugh, and would he even want to coach at Michigan? Seems like an OSU guy all the way. Jury is still out on Cristobal. His stint at FIU was lackluster. Seems to be headed in the right direction at Oregon but so was Helfrich at one point. Jury still out on Wilcox. Done well but one 7-win season isn't enough. Shaw won't leave his alma mater and he's regressed since riding Harbaugh's momentum. Stoops is unlikely and thinking Meyer would go to Michigan is laughable.
Again, huge risk when you're going to consistently get 10 wins out of Harbaugh, especially after Michigan suffered through the Rodriguez/Hoke era.
