CFB Pod: Negandhi and Pollack react to the Week 12 rankings. Plus, Dinich and Maisel

Kevin Negandhi and David Pollack kick off the podcast by discussing David's triumphs in his youth football championships and their reactions to the Week 12 College Football Playoff rankings. Then, they get into LSU's awesome play calling, why the Tigers shouldn't want to see the Crimson Tide again in the Playoff, Minnesota's win over Penn State, David's Dude and listener questions. Next, Heather Dinich joins the show (33:18) to explain why this is the first time in the CFP-era it feels like Alabama could be left out of the Playoff, the Pac-12's overall resume and why Baylor might be doomed no matter what. Finally, Ivan Maisel hops on the pod (44:13) to talk about why he thought Minnesota should've been higher in the rankings and why it's hard to know when a dynasty ends.

LSU ranks first in Strength of Record and it isn't close. An average top-25 team would have had just a 1% chance to be undefeated thus far against LSU's schedule. Meanwhile that seem team would have had a 16% chance to go undefeated vs. Ohio State's schedule, the next best. Among the undefeateds, Clemson had it easiest: an average top 25 team would have had a 29% chance to be 10-0 at this point against the Tigers' schedule.

Not only is Alabama very much still alive, but it has the fourth-best chance to reach the CFP and win the national championship, according to the Allstate Playoff Predictor.
