Not shocking after Harrison passed him and then it seemed likely Potter would pass him.
This right here is what pisses me off. I don't know why OSU ever cooperates with NCAA for anything. Obstruct, deny, and lie seems to do just fine for the SEC.
I could care less about his biases. He’s just a mediocre, often annoying announcer. His actual football analysis is often lazy and nonsensical. His break downs of plays in-game is usually only impressive to people who know nothing about football. Klatt >>> Herbie.
If OSU punches those TDs in and it’s 21-0, the game would’ve been over. When Clemson scored to make it 16-7, I thought we may be toast because they’d absorbed OSU’s best and stayed in the game. The Clemson sideline was amped after that TD because they knew they’d dodged multiple bullets and it was still a game. They believed. I called game when Lawrence scored make it 16-14. Giving an experienced champion confidence like that is lethal. If that game is 21-0, I think Clemson would’ve crumbled.
Cant kick 3 FGs inside the 10 and beat Clemson.
Don’t feel good about Fields’ knee or Wade’s injury. Clemson 38 - OSU 24.
No, he really won’t. Hyde has explosion that Williams never will.
Haha 3M, we can at least say that our General Studies major is cooler than theirs. Exploration is way better.
Isn’t Exploration essentially General Studies?
I don’t know why anyone would be surprised by the committee’s decision. OSU was only hanging on to #1 if they obliterated Wisco. And if they spend time crying about it, they will get waxed by Clemson who will come in motivated.
The key take away here is that Wisco legitimately played as well as any of their fans wildest dreams in the first half and they still lost by 13. Think about that.
He looks exactly how I picture all Alabama fans.
Werner is the bullet in this defense and the coaches favor him over White. Simple enough.
1. I'm rarely feeling great about any Michigan game no matter who the QB is. The only times I felt decent were Tress vs. RichRod.
I will never feel great going into a Michigan game. I can readily acknowledge that OSU is a far superior team with vastly superior coaching, but until OSU builds an insurmountable lead, I'll be nervous.
What I'm really looking forward to is Bama being left out and then losing to someone like Utah in a bowl game. Tide fans will just claim their players couldn't get up for a non-playoff game.
There are Rutgers fans?
Bama has very few paths into the CFP this year. The following all get in over Bama:
1 Loss LSU
1 Loss OSU
1 Loss Pac 12 champ
1 Loss Oklahoma
1 Loss/SEC champ Georgia
Obviously all of those things can't happen in combination. I don't expect Minny and Baylor to go undefeated. But I do expect a 1 Loss Pac 12 champ and Oklahoma to win out. Combine that with any combo of undefeated/1-Loss OSU, undefeated/1-Loss LSU, undefeated Clemson, and 1-Loss+SEC Champ Georgia, and there's no way. OSU isn't losing twice, Clemson isn't losing, and LSU isn't losing twice - there's three of your participants. Alabama isn't getting in over 1-Loss Oklahoma, SEC Champ Georgia, or 1-Loss Pac 12 champ. If that happened, you'd have real rumblings from the Pac 12 about exiting the CFP.
There's also a skill drop off from Wisconsin to Maryland. Wisco's DL is very good.
People's nerves are on edge due to the other news today.
Personally, I just don't think he's as good as other RB's in this class or the next.
Come on now, that's an outlier. It's not like Bama took Jacobs with the intent of solely depending on him for their running game. They took him in addition to the second ranked RB in the country with the understanding that he may or may not develop, but that he had the raw traits to turn into a player for them. When OSU takes 3 stars, it's usually with the same mindset. Yes, there are some 3 stars that OSU ranks much higher than the services do, but mostly OSU is in agreement with who and who is not a 4 or 5 star. That's why they offer and pursue so many top 100 ranked players.
To clarify, me saying Gibbs > Knighton is not saying that OSU will land Gibbs. I just don't think OSU should make Knighton a priority.
Gibbs > Knighton
Knighton is a fine player, but calling it now - he never starts a game at RB at OSU if he goes there (barring injury in front of him).
