Travis Ford recognizes that expectations are low, considering this year's squad looks to have a decent amount of talent on the court. Although, I'm not sure the low expectations has much to do with the talent in Stillwater.

What the College Football Playoff Would Have Looked Like in Years Past

+

ESPN.com put together a look at what the college football playoff would have looked like from 2004 to 2013.

2011: This was one of the few years that the committee could have just ordered some pizzas, put their feet up, and mailed in their top four. LSU, which was the only undefeated team left in the country after beating Georgia convincingly to win the SEC title, would have been an easy No. 1. With wins over eight ranked opponents, including Alabama, there should be no doubting the Tigers' strength of schedule. The computer and the eye test also agreed on Alabama, as its lone loss was in overtime to LSU, and Oklahoma State, which won the Big 12 championship by drubbing a ranked Oklahoma team. USC's postseason ban would have made the decision even easier, along with the head-to-head result that Stanford won -- at USC -- albeit in three overtimes. Boise State was the only other one-loss team the committee might consider, but the Broncos lost at home to an unranked TCU team.
