As a grown, married, heterosexual male in my mid 40's, I have a strict personal policy against being a fashion critic towards other men.  Not that there's anything wrong with that, just not my thing. 

I throw on a jersey once every few years to go to a game, and I could not possibly give a f**k less what anybody thinks about it.  My only thing is, cool jerseys that I really want to wear are expensive.  I have a family to feed, so a $300 shirt isn't in the cards for me.  THe jerseys I do own aren't the authentic ones.

If OSU goes undefeated, they'll be #1 or #2 seed regardless of what happens anywhere else. If the SEC champ is undefeated would be the only team ahead of them. Clemson will drop as the season goes on, the CFP committee has shown a willingness to drop defending champs due to poor play or weak schedule.  Clemson has both this year, so far.  And their schedule only gets weaker. 

Anyway, my four would be

Ohio State v. UGA and LSU v. Clemson in the other semi

Ohio State v LSU in the championship

My wife, who is only a casual football fan, noticed Tuf's athletic prowess on his interception return a few weeks ago.  She very rarely comments on the players or specific plays, but her exact words: 

"Why is 32 running like that?" 

She didn't specfically call him slow or unathletic.  Like, she perceived that something was wrong with him because of the way he was running.  Is it possible that he's just never going to fully recover from the achilles injury?

Love them both. 

JK will very possibly end up being second only to Archie in all time rushing yards as a Buckeye, and with only one year of being the featured back.  So I'd say he's pretty great.  Teague may eventually surpass him, but for now, JK is the man.

Penn State is recruiting at a level that they could pull it off if they could get past OSU again and not blow it somewhere else.  But it's long shot.  The other one would be FSU regrouping and getting back to where they were.  They're still recruiting well, they just need to get their coaching situation figured out.  

But my final answer is Pac12, especially if USC gets Urban out there next year.

Opinions, I guess.  I dislike Forde, but these guys entertain me in this pod format. 

Comment 09 Oct 2019

I like most of the ones OP mentioned, and I'd add Cover 3 with Barton Simmons, Chip Patterson, and Tom Fornelli. 

They do CFB picks against the spread on their Thursday show that have helped me quite a bit. 

Also, Yahoo Sports College Pod is pretty funny, too.  I'm not a big Pat Forde fan, but the three guys (Dan Wetzel and Pete Thamel) are truly funny at times.  They had me rolling talking about the Snoop Dogg Kansas fiasco last week.

Did you miss their last game against UNC?  On its face, the schedule shouldn't have any losses on it.  UNC outplayed them for 55 minutes.  If that can happen, a team with real talent can definitely beat them.  FSU has been a dumpster fire, but they have athletes on par with Clemson, and if they don't play like a sloppy mess, will challenge them this weekend.  I'm not calling the upset, but I wouldn't be at all surprised.  

FSU has also made a couple of changes on their coaching staff that might help.

Part of Danny's job is to attract ratings.  One way radio and media guys do that is by trolling, or at least saying things that are mildly controversial.  The whole "shock jock" thing, watered down for sports. Guys like Colin Cowherd, Jim Rome, Dan LeBatard, etc have built their careers on this. 

Danny even says on his show, though, that there's a radio Danny and a Twitter danny, which I believe this ranking is posted on Twitter weekly. When he actually talks about it on the show, he's much less assertive about it.  

And honestly, I don't think we should be holding our sports radio hosts to higher standards that we do the people who are leading our government.  If he's "intellectually dishonest" to drive ratings, IDGAF.  He's entitled to his opinion.

Right, but even an average football fan can see they haven't hit their ceiling or put together a full 60 minute performance yet. 

I mean, they're scoring most of their points in the 2nd quarter.  Imagine if they played like that for even 3 quarters.  

Comment 08 Oct 2019

Fields, in particular, is still getting better every week.  I don't think there's any concern about motivation overall from the team, or that they might regress as the season goes on.  They may peak too early, but they haven't peaked yet (not even close), imo.  As amazing as they've looked, their ceiling is so incredibly high, and this coaching staff seems to be doing a great job of keeping them focused on getting better week in and week out. 

When Fields masters the entire playbook and gets even more comfortable with the receivers, watch out.  He still overthrows a few passes per game, so hopefully that'll get worked out too.  I guess what I'm trying to say is, if he was hitting some of these longer throws that have been missed (or in some cases dropped), they'd be putting up even more unreal numbers.

Arizona hired a guy who just got fired from Texas Tech because he lost too much.  Sub .500 college coaches get canned and, if they've rubbed elbows with the right person, get immediate offers for HC NFL jobs.  

For the record, the Cardinals' experiment is going to go down in massive flames, but ballsy of them, nonetheless. And very stupid.

41-10

sparty is very thin on their OL. 4th string left tackle will be starting from what I’ve read. So I see a lot of punting and probably a couple of takeaways for the defense, maybe even a defensive score. I’m giving them a late garbage time TD, but I could see us holding them under 10. 

Comment 03 Oct 2019

It’s not like it never gets cold in North Georgia. He’s played night games in November. It may not be as cold as Ohio, but it’s overblown that southern players can’t handle the cold. If he had small hands I might be a little worried about fumbling in the cold rain or snow, but how often to they actually play on snow? Once in the past 10 years that I can remember. As long as it’s dry, the cold will have zero effect.

Comment 02 Oct 2019

Exaclty.  Auburn and Clemson are getting a lot of love for beating "ranked" Texas A&M, which barely won on the last play of the game against (Ar)Kansas, and which will most likely finish the season 7-5 or 6-6 

Comment 02 Oct 2019

That's not a tough situation at all, honestly.  Bama stays home.  

What would make this tougher is if Clemson also lost to Virginia in the ACC title game by a field goal.  Then you'd have defending champions and ACC champions with one close "quality" loss versus Alabama with one loss who didn't win their conference. 

Comment 02 Oct 2019

We're not on the team, we don't have to stay focused on this week's opponent.  If the players were on here debating this, we might have reason to worry.  This is part of the fun of being a sports fan.  We can look forward to the future and debate about it.  

Comment 02 Oct 2019

If my company uses my image in marketing materials, they are within their rights because they pay me a salary in exchange. If somebody outside of my work would pay me for an autograph or to speak to their group, I can accept that compensation with no repercussions.  NCAA athletes can not.  That's what you're missing.  

Comment 30 Sep 2019

Not really.  South Carolina and Texas A&M both will end up barely bowl eligible.  Their other two OOC games are Wofford and Charlotte. Texas A&M is probably better than anybody on OSU's OOC schedule, but I'd take Cincy over South Carolina.  And FAU and Miami are better than Wofford and Charlotte, by a wide margin.  Also, they and Auburn are getting way too much credit for beating Texas A&M who barely beat a terrible Arkansas team, and will again be a 6 or 7 win team win all is said and done. 

Honestly, OOC is a small part of the equation anyway. It's not the team's fault that their league sucks, but it also has to be taken into account in comparing teams for the playoff.  And Clemson's overall schedule is one of the worst I've seen since the playoff era began, for a team in the discussion. 

Comment 30 Sep 2019

No, because as we saw on Saturday, having a bunch of crappy teams on your schedule doesn't guarantee you'll go undefeated.  Clemson is 1000x more talented than UNC, and UNC was one play from beating them.  Clemson is just going through the motions and they look as bored with their schedule as the rest of us are. They may still go undefeated, but the problem with a schedule like that is, if they lose one game, they're probably not getting in the playoff no matter what else happens.  

I think playing at least 2-3 ranked teams (by their end of year ranking) should be a minimum requirement to get into the top 4. But playing nobody all year isn't a guarantee, either.
