Bama has very few paths into the CFP this year. The following all get in over Bama:

1 Loss LSU

1 Loss OSU

Undefeated Clemson

Undefeated Baylor

Undefeated Minnesota

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.

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).

The H-back role that everyone thinks of has less to do with the role itself and more to do with Percy Harvin being one of the most dangerous college football players ever. Samuel came closest to emulating what Harvin did, but frankly Harvin was a once a decade type of player.

OP is just talking about recoveries. Forcing fumbles is not as random because you can coach players on technique to rip the ball or target the QB's throwing arm, but recovering them truly has a lot of luck involved.
