Yep. Hopefully in the near future all B1G games will be on Fox and we won’t have to watch ESPN at all until the playoff.
Just stop feeding them. They want your outrage.
As much as we’d love to have him coach forever, eventually LJ will retire and it’ll probably be within the next couple years. I like that the staff has recognized and is having him work with his likely successor. It will also help having Kenny have relationships with the recruits so it won’t be such a significant blow when it does eventually happen.
Michigan was probably around 5th this year...maybe 4th towards the end given how Minnesota played after they beat Penn State. Let us not forget that this Michigan team was the overwhelming favorite to win the conference. This was on par with their worst underachieving seasons. And hopefully Alabama gives them a beatdown to ruin their confidence going into 2020.
It’s nice to see them get the opportunity to have the experience. They both had amazing seasons and are deserving of recognition.
I agree with your logic, but I tend to believe that Gene Smith was being honest when he said that the committee putting Georgia over us in 2018 made him leave it entirely. Had OU lost to Texas in 2018, Georgia would have been #4 over us. I think the debate is real.
Ole Miss almost put 40 on you. Settle down LSU.
Good. They’ve been wading through junk all season. We’ll see how they handle getting punched square in the mouth.
Wisconsin has done a phenomenal job of delay blitzing their linebackers and stunting their d-line both games. Fields lack of mobility also kept him from sidestepping and escaping as quickly as normal. I think the sacks are more of a product of pass plays being too long in development and Wisconsin intelligently calling these blitzes and stunts at the correct time.
I will respectfully disagree with the praise for the committee. They ignored their selection criteria again and went with eye test in the only decision that wasn’t made for them by process of elimination. They also had a “decision” to make between a two loss SEC non champ and a one loss Big 12 champ, so even the easy decision wasn’t easy in their minds. Looks like the same old garbage to me.
We won the B1G for three straight seasons. We’re in the playoff and have a shot at a national championship. We’re 13-0 and have a chance to go 14-0 and then 15-0. We destroyed Michigan worse than we did in 2018 and next year will be played in Ohio Stadium. Yes, the seeding didn’t go like we wanted, but damn near everything else has. Enjoy the moment because it doesn’t get much better that this for us.
The only consistency with the committee is the inconsistency. They put the criteria out only as suggestions. So far the only thing I see them use to rank teams is the “eye test” and “where are you at your worst.”
No complaints from me. I’m happy to be in the playoff and be B1G champions for the third straight year.
I agree with your statement, sarcastic or not. We will have to beat Clemson to win the title. People who think LSU is the big dog are kidding themselves. That defense is a sieve. If we can get past Clemson, we win the title.
I didn’t realize, thanks for the update. I somehow remembered us playing the next week after beating Alabama New Years Day 2015.
I think the seeding was largely out of our control. I think we had to put together a 30-40 point win over Wisconsin to have any hope of maintaining the #1 seed after LSU’s victory. That’s almost impossible to do to a high quality team more than once. The committee was so in love with Georgia for some reason I can’t explain or understand and LSU beat them soundly, like us or Clemson would have done as well.
Eventually we’ll have to beat Clemson to win the title. If LSU plays them first, we’d have to play them in the championship game and have 1 week to prepare. I trust our staff to have a great gameplan with 3 weeks to prep.
One of the few times I’ll say Roll Tide...but Roll Tide and beat their asses up and down the field.
Yep. Georgia’s offense is a joke. I don’t see how the committee can look at them and think they’re good.
I’ve watched 4 Georgia games this season...they are not a great team. They’re a bad offense with a pretty good defense. Their best win is against Florida. Notre Dame almost beat them at home. Wisconsin would absolutely annihilate them.
They’re full of future pros but they’ve been torched whenever they played a decent QB and offense. OU will put 30+ on them. LSU will probably score 40+ but it’ll be a shoot out. If we get past Clemson, I think we'll whip them.
We’re going to have to play Clemson one way or another. I’d rather have 3 weeks to prepare for them rather than a week. LSU’s defense is a fraud; they beat up on garbage offenses like Georgia and A&M. I actually wouldn’t be shocked if it’s a really close game against OU or an outright win for the Sooners.
We get to lose the play off and the B1G in one game...this is so bad...like a nightmare.
I’m sitting in the stands and it’s like 95-5 Ohio State. We’re all sitting around looking in confusion. It’s like getting pantsed. This is MSU 2013 all over again.
