    Don’t know why you’re upset when the CFP committee is doing Nick Saban a favor. Now he can spend the rest of the week all “honesty I think we’re ranked too highly, we haven’t played a good game all year” and then the Tide play inspired and cruise to a victory over LSU en route to a national championship.

    if D2 or whatever they're calling it now can have a proper playoff there's no reason D1 can't

    other than money I mean, but it seems like there'd be more money in a proper 8 (or 12 or 16) team playoff than in the current system, it'd just be going to different people

    If this was after the Notre Dame game and if Navy won or even made a good show of it, being ranked would make more sense to me.

    As it stands, the most significant team they've played all year is Memphis, and they lost that one. And this comes two weeks after nearly getting upset by Tulane.

    I'm not denying they're good, I'm just scratching my head trying to figure out why they're ranked.

    I'm just being petulant.

    Maybe this will silence all the nuttos who think the committee manufactures rankings for television ratings.

    I'm going to assume that's sarcasm because pretty much the only reason to publish any rankings at all is for television. The only one of these rankings that matters at all is the last one that determines the playoff.

    I cannot count how many times I have heard "X or Y is only in the playoff because they will bring more viewers"

    And like, while it's used to promote television that is not how they go about making the list, with television in the forefront of their minds. There is a huge gulf of distinction between the two.

    The student government association at Alabama is intrinsically tied to the fraternity system at Alabama and is incredibly systemically racist so this isn’t a surprise.

    Fun fact the Alabama SGA has a “secret” political Machine literally called The Machine or ONE and it fuels Alabama state politics.

    Is there such a thing as a student government that isn't ridiculous and obnoxious

    I posit that the answer is no

    Every year at Michigan the competing parties would try to ruin their opponents by filing official complaints that their opponents had written sidewalk chalk ads before the official sidewalk chalk time or something like that

    And every year there was a new party with some sort of name like UniteMich or YouMich or UsMich or something

    Also like, that whole spiel is utterly moot because between the current security at Bryant Denny and the added security of a sitting president douchebag attending, the frats are gonna have to do all their drinking pre-game.

    So they are gonna be drunk as fuck and not giving a shit. If they were gonna cheer they will cheer. If they were gonna boo they are gonna boo.

    There is no point reasoning with a bunch of drunk as fuck college students.

    On the one hand: If this were happening in Death Valley, I would expect LSU to pull the same dumb crap.

    On the other hand: If Bama loses the same day 45 comes to visit, the entire state might vote Democrat straight down the ticket out of spite.

    WEEK 11: THE PRESIDENT WILL KEEP RUINING SPORTS UNTIL MORALE IMPROVES

    Straight Up
    #12 Baylor (-2.5) @ Texas Christian - I'm not going to talk about Baylor, so I guess we can talk about how TCU has yo-yo'd between looking good enough to handily beat Texas to never truly looking like they could come back against Oklahoma State a week later? That's not really entertaining. Guess I'll just come clean and say the reason this is late is because I was interviewing for a new job that I just got offered so I guess the Pick'ems finally has a happy ending for someone?

    Western Kentucky @ Arkansas (-1.5) - God, Arkansas is fascinating. I'm not sure if Chad Morris is truly a bad coach or not, especially considering the general trajectory of the program since about 2008 relative to its SEC peers, but they're really just not good in any real facets of the game at the moment. And then you put then against a Western Kentucky team which is not as dangerous as they've been in the past but are still a good team? There really is a possibility Morris gets fired at halftime, and I don't think anyone will blame Arkansas fans for demanding it.

    #19 Wake Forest (-2) @ Virginia Tech - *looks around to make sure no one is listening in* *checks under the couch just to be sure* *rents a boat and sails out into the middle of the Pacific Ocean just be sure*

    wake forest could still win the ACC.

    *immediately attacked by rabid Clemson fans*

    Southern California @ Arizona State (-1.5) - Here it is, folks: the last ride of Clay Helton. The last time an embattled USC coach went on the road and lost to Arizona State, the word tarmac'd was introduced to the college football lexicon. And oh, look at that: USC just hired a new athletic director who you can just tell is itching to bring in his own coach. The only difference here is that I think Mike Bohn may opt to go the Milton route here and just not pay Helton until he finally figures out he was fired and either leaves or burns the place to the ground. And at least the second option would give USC a chance to untuck their stadium renovations.

    God I just did that whole thing and didn't even need to reference the fact that ASU may desperately need to win this game if they want to actually pretend they made progress in Herm Edwards's second year instead of just spinning their wheels yet again. This game is fantastic. Maybe we should have made it GotCotW

    Florida International @ Florida Atlantic (-10) - THE SHULA BOWL! And it's a rather important Shula Bowl this year, especially for the Fighting Kiffins, who are in the hunt for a bowl game but really can't afford more losses. And really, if Lane Kiffin can get the Owls to their 4th bowl game in program history, it'd be a really nice feather in the cap of a coach who has done relatively well in obscurity. Which is not to say FIU wouldn't love to play spoiler and win their 5th* Shula Bowl ever, but as always, this is Joey Freshwater's story and we're all just living in it.

    * - one of FIU's victories was vacated and no I'm not going to go figure out why you all are adults and can do some research on your own.

    Against the Spread
    #2 Louisiana State @ #3 Alabama (-6.5) - I was SO excited for this game, especially once it became clear that LSU was going to finally try this newfangled invention called offense. And then some loud asshole decided to ruin everyone's fun in his never-ending quest to be the absolute worst. If you're wondering why this game isn't GotCotW, it is very much because of that. God I don't even want to talk about this game anymore. Ugh.

    Illinois @ Michigan State (-14.5) - The Illini have been resurgent in recent weeks. No really; earlier this season, Illinois was 2-4 and it looked like we were finally nearing the end of the Lovie Smith experiment in Champaign. And then the Wisconsin upset happened, and suddenly Illinois was beating other teams handily and is on the cusp of bowl eligibility. Meanwhile, I guess I'm supposed to sit here and pretend Michigan State couldn't find a way to lose this in hilarious fashion? Cmonnnnnnn.

    #18 Iowa @ #13 Wisconsin (-8.5) - This is very much an elimination game in the B1G West. The loser picks up their third conference loss on the year and is almost-assuredly out of the running with Minnesota currently 2 games clear, while the winner is still in a bad spot but at least will have a game against Minnesota to try and pull close. Iowa has a second problem in that this game isn't at home, so they can't rely on Kinnick magic to pull the upset.

    #5 Clemson (-31.5) @ North Carolina State - Fair play to the CFP Committee for giving Dabo Sweeney the exact amount of disrespect the Tigers need to actually start playing like one of the best college teams again. Clemson will probably get back into the top 4 following LSU/Bama, and they really weren't in danger of missing out on the playoffs, but the initial playoff rankings were at least interesting for showing that there really is no cushion for the Tigers thanks to how bad the ACC is.

    GAME OF THE CENTURY OF THE WEEK (AGAINST THE SPREAD)
    #4 Pennsylvania State (-6.5) @ #17 Minnesota - Here it is. The boat has been rowed all the way to the biggest slot of the week, because we aren't cowards like ESPN who are bowing before their SEC overlords. No, we here at the Pick'ems are champions of the little guys, even when those little guys are undefeated and really should have been rated higher by the CFP Committee cmon guys. ANYWAY, PJ Fleck just got an extension and has the Golden Gophers out to their best start since *checks notes* 1941, and would really want to win this game, if only to give them a shot at having a truly-special season. Speaking of special seasons, Penn State is having the type of season that you know is going to lead to all kinds of James Franklin rumors in a few weeks that definitely won't be a distraction while Ohio State vivisects them.
