Why would they? Right now it'd be something like Florida vs Virginia. That would be a complete waste of everyone's time.
I see your point, but I remember a defending national champ team that went undefeated until the clock struck 0:00 in one game yet didn't make the playoffs.
Holy cow the possibility for chaos is still insane. As they discussed, if LSU loses to UGa and/or OSU loses to Minnesota then you'd have something like 8 teams for 2 spots. I really hope Day and the team don't slip up.
35 seems high to me, but I hope so. We really just haven't seen the team tested for 60 minutes. I'll be surprised if they're ever playing from behind or it's not at least a 2 possession differential to start the 4th, but 35 seems high. I have concerns about the LBs still, but only against better teams than PSU.
Tress' least favorite comment, totally dismissing the punter like that....
Rece Davis, "There's Auburn at 15 with 3 great losses." I mean, I kind of get it, but who on that team is excited about how they almost won 3 times, but have a 3 in the L column? Personally I'm tired of the quality losses being a consistent motif... I get it coming up from time to time, but it seems to be a point of emphasis every week.
Wouldn't that result in something like
1 OSU vs 4 LSU , 2 Clemson vs 3 UGa ?
Whaddddup hype train! Full speed ahead apparently
I don't think the line between LSU and the Pac12 winner would be as large as you think. Having watched the Ducks a fair bit recently, and catching the Ute highlights, I think they'd both play LSU very close.
Did anybody watch part 2? They went for another full 15 minutes. Talking points:
- They *really* like a Pac 12 champ in as the 4 seed *unless Georgia beats LSU* - If UGa does find a way to win I assume LSU gets in, but that'd be a shame in my mind. The Pac12 or a resurgent Big12 1 loss conference champ should get a chance for my money. I'll be rooting hard for LSU. UGa can lose by 14 to Oklahoma or Baylor in the Sugar Bowl for all I care.
- Kirk was damn near foaming at the mouth excited for The Game. I hope he's right. He thinks OSU is going to curbstomp Harbaugh
- Bear picked the Bucks to be at least a 17 point favorite Saturday night. That dude is pretty accurate... 19 points was the line today
- They're all pissed about going to the ACC champ game instead of the Pac12 game. Apparently there's a running joke that the Clemson 1's should have to play the Clemson 2's for a better game, either that or an ACC All Star team. Just goes to show how trash that conference is.
He's a CU grad from out here though so I can't totally hate the guy
If LSU played Clemson, right now I think LSU would be getting double digits. I think they get past UGa but let's just say I don't believe their defense will get them a natty.
There are plenty of examples from many teams, but yeah, compare with Dobbins.... night and day
:scrolls back to September, sees Ehlinger and Patterson listed, laughs:
I think he was excusing 1 game as an anomaly but now can't pretend it's not just the way it is.
It just means more.
Ohio State is still behind LSU in this week's coaches poll, but did pick up one first-place vote as the Buckeyes had five last week and has six first-place votes this week, behind Clemson's 55.
Minor edit suggestion there
Fingers crossed. Love the enthusiasm
Props to the cheerleader I guess for owning his mistake, but I am baffled at it.
He was campaigning for Bama to remain the 4 seed yesterday because of Cardale. While I agree next man up and whatnot, bro you're calling the Auburn Georgia game. Georgia is the 4 at the moment, you dumbass.
Screw Bama too, but if you're taking LSU's receivers and offering me Clemson's in a fantasy league, I'm winning.
Sorry man I started early, couldn't through for the Oregon game
3:30 is a helluva start to your day. I'm not up that early but don't mind the 10am kickoffs. Breakfast during the pregame stuff then settling in for the game, lunch around halftime, and afterwards still have time to get out for a trail run or a bike ride. Caveat on that last part: until the snow starts to fall. I like being a later game towards the end of the season to be able to ski in the morning.
Sign me up for a Pac12 vs LSU game. I watched a fair amount of the LSU then Utah and now Oregon games. I'd put the +/- at 78, and am confident that the Pac team could hang with LSU having seen their defense the last several weeks.
