So glad OU won another. I was having flashbacks to many big game chokes when TCU almost came back from 17-0.
I watched RAW. I thought it sucked. The usual problems and such.

Why did my Vols have to be the highest profile trainwreck in college sports when my local area is all about some Clemson fever? At least I still see orange all over the place.

And according to ESPN.com, Auburn was #2 when they lost today. WHY?? They beat Alabama, okay, and? Goddamn, that doesn't let motherfuckers just leapfrog better teams. Is this a backdoor way to get Alabama in the playoff?

They beat Georgia too. Back to back wins against #1 teams. They deserved to be #2. Now they're not.

Have you watched Wisconsin today? What about them makes them better, I mean for real. All I see is a bunch of guys that can't hang with better athletes and are getting by on the strength of coaching alone. Alabama gets in the playoff if Wisconsin loses, and it looks like they will.

Of course they should. One loss is better than two and they didn't give up 55 points to Iowa. They can't keep changing the rules for Ohio State. Last year it was that the conference championship didn't matter, then they lost by 31. Now it's supposed to matter? Now people want them to play Clemson again? Nah. Get them outta here.

Also, you got ESPN who really really doesn’t want another Clemson/Alabama game since those games have been ratings death.   Any excuse to get Ohio State in, they will find it and use it.

Also the playoffs are all subject to human bias and will inevitably change year to year based on what the people feel "matters" that particular year anyway. If Alabama gets in, so be it. Until it gets to at least 8 teams (preferably 12-16 tbh), there are always going to be questionable choices and teams that should belong not getting in/vice versa.

In FCS Playoff news, the big shocker was Kennesaw State (3rd year in program's existence) knocking off Jacksonville State. Kennesaw State moves on to go up against the red hot, explosive offense of Sam Houston State (KS's defense is 20th against the Run and 4th in PPGA) while CAA's New Hampshire battles South Dakota State.

Weber State @ James Madison will be on ESPN2 on Friday. Wofford @ North Dakota State, which should be a good matchup, will be on ESPN2 on Saturday at Noon/9:00.

8 is ideal.  When you get to 16 or more it starts to dilute the importance of the regular season.  There is nobody that would be left out in a 8 person field where whow we'd be collectively thinking were title contenders.

Don't think either one of them should've gotten in, but so be it. And instead of top 8, best 8 conferences. There's 10 conferences, so do it by who wins conference championship.

And before anyone complains "but that would mean weaker teams get in", then shut up and win.

Can't wait to see how much spunk the sports media spills over the possibility of a second all-ESSEEESEE title game this decade, though I'd be fine with Georgia (or the other two not-Alabama schools, really) winning

Would also be highly amused if Riley manages to lead OU to a title six months after Stoops bailed

Oklahoma has the best QB of all four teams and the weapons to go with it, so it's difficult to look past them. I think they'll win it all.

Stoops didn't really bail though. He knew he was getting ready to retire in the next few years and he wanted Lincoln Riley to succeed him. He also knew that the team was loaded and other teams would come after Lincoln to be their head coach so he went ahead and retired early so that his baby basically was left in capable hands while loaded as well.

I mean look at all these openings. No way they could've kept Riley at OC after this season.


Oklahoma RB Rodney Anderson has had a protective order accusing him of rape filed. That's the only information we have. He denies it of course. Sounds like he's accusing her of being an internet stalker that's making things up. Guess we'll see how it plays out. If he did it off the team obviously.

Stanford OC Mike Bloomgren, 2013-2017, is the new HC at Rice.

UCF hired Josh Heupel as HC, been OC at Missouri last 2 seasons, and he also named Randy Shannon as DC.

Mario Cristobal gets his 2nd chance at a HC gig with Oregon after coaching at Florida International earlier in his career. Robert Prunty also gets a shot at Hampton after being AHC at Cincinnati from 2013-2016 and serving under Tommy Tuberville at Texas Tech from 2010-2012.

Reminder that #1 James Madison (QB Bryan Schor 69%, 2,500+ Yards, 23 TD vs 11 INT) hosts #11 Weber State (QB Stefan Cantwell 2,700+ Yards & 550 Rushing, 23 TD vs 6 INT and 7 TD rushing) tonight on ESPN2 at 7:00 ET/4:00 PT.

Somewhat sloppy QB play from both Weber State/JMU but a solid game overall.

Also in a big match up between constant playoff squads, North Dakota State/Wofford square off at Noon/9 AM today on ESPN2. Wofford names to know: FB Andre Stoddard, SB Lennox McAfee, and SB Blake Morgan. North Dakota State has QB Easton Stick, RB Bruce Anderson (900+ yards rushing), and WR RJ Urzendowski.

Both teams predominantly run the ball so this should be a great match up in terms of which run defense can step up.

Real deal to me but I keep hearing people say he's too short. There's a lot of QBs they could draft though and a lot of dumb people have Mayfield graded in the second round.

Baker's a total baller, has that IT factor & skill that trumps his shortness. Also the "short QB" trope is so 90s when most college football quarterbacks coming out top out at 6'2", maybe 6'3" nowadays.

I'd normally bitch about 38 combined points scored well before halftime but the allure and appeal of a big time, consequential college football game going on in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day cancels out my cynicism.

EDIT: Also, if the OU defense is the shits, it looks like it's helped so far. If a team's strength is a crazy offense then I'd think a game which forces them to keep trying to score points is the best kind of game they can play.
