Objectively yes, it is definitely possible that Alabama could win by a comfortable margin. I can't blame Forde for holding this opinion (hell, part of me thinks it is going to happen too). I think most people are calling in his reasoning behind said opinion. Saban has "three weeks to prepare." And Ohio State doesn't? Logically that argument (like most of his arguments) does not hold water. Forde has such little critical reasoning skills that it's crazy to me he has a job as a national columnist analyzing games. What do Yahoo! and ESPN (previously) see in him? He is often wrong in his analysis and comes across like he is talking about something about which he is not very knowledgable.
Forde is such a turd. His columns have little-to-no thought behind them. I have questions about how much he actually knows about college football. How he got such a high profile platform to bloviate is beyond me.
Get ready for UC's superiority complex to kick up yet another notch...
Yeah, I likewise don't see much wrong with Dino's comments.
In fact, most of the shade being thrown our way from within the Big Ten is coming from Ann Arbor. I took a look at MGoBlog last night and boy, there are some sour ass grapes in that community. Some comments on their threads are reaching Big 12 levels.
This won't end well.
REALLY hope Dino takes Briles and the Bears to the woodshed. Let's go Sparty!
Super Bad references always get an UV.
Eh, better that than the Real Housewives.
If Ohio State wins on Saturday I will watch all ten hours of it.
Long, sustained drives. Keep MelGor on the bench.
I don't know which was a greater waste of time: Eminem's interview during that UM-ND game or Jim Delaney's interview during OSU-Maryland. Either way I felt infinitely dumber after listening to each.
Does anyone know if Tress will make the trip down to see Troy's number enshrined? Would be awesome to have him in the Shoe for another Michigan game.
Funny that all of these SEC types are complaining of bias against their teams. As an aside, if Bama wins the SEC and Miss St beats Ole Miss, there will be a HUGE campaign to get those two in the playoff. Just get ready, it's going to be awful. The entire southeast may burn if they don't get their way.
Not sure why Muschamp garners so much sympathy. It seems like everyone is invoking all of these caveats when describing his performance at UF. The dude was is a bad head coach America! There is just no way around it.
Just. Win. Baby.
The best thing about this GIF (that I hadn't noticed before), other than the girl, is the dude directly behind her and to her right. He looks as if either a.) he has no idea what is going on, or b.) he has just cut a really nasty fart and is hoping that none of the people around him notice. The two may not be mutually exclusive, either.
I really hope we can beat such a good SEC East team today...
Dan won't be able to do that if he leaves Starkvegas for Michigan next year...
Love me some EzE. Dude is really coming on strong here at the end of the season - when it matters most.
Early in the season they went all-in on the SEC West; now it looks like only one team from that division should seriously be considered for the playoff. In fact, two SEC West teams who were in the top 4 earlier this year (TAMU and Auburn) had bad losses to SEC East teams on Saturday.
I think someone in Bristol realized they overplayed their hand. With the launching of the SEC Network and the early success of the Mississippi schools, they were dying of excitement. They look pretty dumb now, so I am not surprised they they are pulling back a little bit. Better late than never.
