Today I debunk some of the myths that are currently floating around. Most notably that Oklahoma and the BIG12 are out of the playoff race. I also talk about some teams that have completely quit on the season.
The CFP rankings were just released. I don't have a problem with where Cincinnati is ranked. The committee seems to honor head to head which is good to see although there is some flaw and inconsistencies with that. Alabama being number 2 is a problem for me and I have some conspiracy theories about it..
The focus of who might make the college football playoff is running the fun in following conference championship races in conferences that might not have a playoff contender left. Week 9 had some upsets so what does that mean for those teams going forward? Should Alabama be ranked 3rd?
Washington State fired head coach Nick Rolovich for refusing to comply with the states covid 19 vaccine mandate. The media coverage is hypocritical given how it has covered these situations in the past. The Tennessee Ole Miss game got crazy and there is no excuse but what really caused the fans frustration? Can anything be done about players faking injuries on defense or is this just a part of the game now? No big "sexy" matchups this week but that is when chaos tends to happen..
Ed Orgeron is officially out at LSU. What does that mean about the coaching search going forward and who will emerge as the top candidate? Iowa loses and deservingly drops in the rankings but why is Alabama still so high up there with a similar level loss? Is that fair? Why are the rankings done with so much pre built opinion about teams? All the conference races in the power 5 are shaping up to be very exciting.
USC is already vacant and most people expect LSU to become open at some point this year as well. Which is the better job and what are some of the top candidates? How we talk about teams all year matters a lot but should it? Crazy playoff scenarios and more!!
Alabama goes down to Texas A&M and the field is now wide open. A lot of teams control their own destiny when it comes to the playoff. Georgia should be #1 but they are a lot closer to the rest of the pac than a lot of people think. The way most do rankings doesn't make any sense..We could easily have a two BIGTEN team playoff scenario.
