They got a late td that shouldn't have happened. The freshman cb of LSU for whatever reason was playing bump and run when they were up by 2 TDS and got burned deep. If Alabama didn't get that late td, they would of lost by double digits at home.
Listening to Rex Ryan talk college football must be as bad as listening to Stephen A Smith talk football in general
Not even including the comment above, but Rex Ryan comes off as a loud mouth, know it all, asshole. The way he talks down to players, coaches and etc is pretty awful.
Penn State's secondary is pretty bad. I watched 2 games of theirs, against Michigan and parts against Minnesota and from what I could tell, they have a hard time covering the downfield pass against good receivers. As a whole, I feel our receivers are better than both Michigan and Minnesota so I like our chances.
Hopefully weather doesn't play a factor like it did in 2015 against Michigan State. They had an even worse secondary than this Penn State team, but we couldn't take advantage because of the weather. Michigan State had something like the 80th ranked pass offense that year, but gave up less than 50 against us.
Georgia has a much worse loss than Oregon so they don't belong above them yet. If Baylor beats Oklahoma this week, than they are a clear top 4 team up to this point also.
1. LSU/Ohio State
2. LSU/ Ohio State
That is for this week. If Baylor beats Oklahoma, they should jump Oregon.
Oh I misread so I apologise for that, but I feel conference winners>eye test except for certain circumstances such as poor schedule and a loss (Clemson), 2 loss conference champ and etc.
Beat me to it lol
Ohio State was a better team than everyone in 2015 and they lost in a rainstorm. Didn't help them at all. Just because we feel that they are 1 of the 4 best teams, when do results on the field matter? There is no point in playing any game and just say, yep, they are one of the best 4 teams and that is it. Oregon could be undefeated if they scheduled an fcs opponent instead of Auburn and nobody would bat an eye.
I'm thinking the same. If Oregon wins the rest of their games and gets left out of the playoffs in favor of a 2nd SEC team that not only lost it's conference, but also division, they have a right to be upset. If that scenario does play out, the Big 10, Pac 12 and Big 12 should demand a change. I think Auburn takes care of Bama anyway for what it's worth.
Is it really that far fetched to rank Ohio State ahead of LSU? We were already ranked ahead of them this week and did nothing to prove we aren't number 1. It is fine if the committee ranks LSU as top team because they beat Bama, but there is a legitimate argument whether or not we belong there as well. Don't use LSU beating #9th ranked Texas as an argument for their stronger schedule either. Preseason rankings played a big part in that ranking rather than on field play.
Georgia should be punished as harshly as Ohio State losing to Purdue last year. South Carolina may be worse than that Purdue team

One thing I noticed from this game is that neither of these 2 teams have a edge rusher remotely close to Chase Young. The sacks on Tua were mostly of the coverage variety because Tua held on to the ball a long time. Alabama was bringing a lot of blitzes to get to Joe, but to his credit, he seemed to do a good job of getting rid of the ball in a hurry.
I believe having Chase Young along with our dbs, Ohio State's defense can slow down these offenses just enough so we can beat either of them. I would also love seeing that LSU tackle trying to slow down Chase Young by diving at his legs like he did against Bama.
Hard to imagine a guy better than Terry Mcclaurin on special teams, but here we are a year later.
Penn State isn't playing Clemson this week.
Just like against Michigan, Penn State struggles with good receivers. Difference is Minnesota has a better QB.
I cannot see it being a player. I don't think his current teammates would take kindly to somebody ratting and they wouldn't trust Jones.
Is Olave a better special teams player than Mcclaurin? That question would seem absurd a year ago.
We've bullied every team that we played so far. What makes Maryland immune to the same treatment?
Minnesota has made Penn State's defensive line look pedestrian so far
Minnesota's offensive line is massive and are winning up front early against Penn State's defensive line.
I'm thinking at the worst it will be a 4 game suspension. Doubt it will stick that way and hope it is at maximum 2
We didn't just lose to Purdue, but were slapped silly by them. So I do think that result was a reason why Ohio State didn't make it.
If the NCAA is fine with a 1 game suspension, then Ohio State will suspend him for 3.
Our defense was horrible
If it happened a couple years ago, why bring it up right now?
