    Crazy stat of the week: Alabama has lost every game they have played against a currently-ranked team.

    Is the first time Alabama won't make the playoff since it started?

    The SEC is mostly boiled ass this year

    TAMU, Arkansas, Miss/St are butt

    Tenn, Vandy, Kentucky, SCar, Missouri are ass

    TAMU isn't good, exactly, but I kind of find it hard to fault them any of their loses considering who they played. Plus the only game of theirs I actually watched they managed to play Georgia very close.

    The AAC is easily better than the ACC this year and has an argument for placement above the B12 and P12 as well

    Malzahn on the 4th and 4: it was a gimmick play to try to fool Alabama into not putting Waddle on the field. The punter was in at WR and they were going to motion him over to punt.

    I am not the best judge, but I would say Georgia, Auburn, Alabama, LSU, and Florida are all various shades of good. There was a real polarization though I will say. I can't say I have seen a team that feels kind of ok. Either they were pretty good or a complete waste of time.

    I feel a little bad for TAMU on that list given how brutal their schedule was. 3 of their losses, and probably 4 given how the current game is going were from teams that were looking to be in the playoffs. The last loss came to Auburn who just demonstrated how good a team they are pretty effectively.

    Think that has more to do with Georgia than TAMU.

    I mean...I'd like to defend TAMU but uh...this LSU game is rough. Still losing to at the time 1, 8, 1, 4, 1, is hard to judge.

    Yeah the top SEC teams are good. Real
    Good. Good enough to carry the rest of the conference to best overall.

    The B1G has 6 good teams + Indiana, and the rest are a bucket of puke

    Baylor might win the B12 so fuck them

    The top PAC-12 teams are not great, and the rest of the conference is a bunch of schools taking turns shooting their dicks off

    The ACC isn’t even a real conference in football

    The AAC has 6 good teams and a few more fun ones

    Relegate the ACC at least

    Awesome'd for the ACC comments - Clemson obviously.

    And yeah. My team is one of the puke teams in the B1G sadly

    That near come back against Iowa was a nice kick in the sack to end the year.

    And Saban actually whined about that specific play, post-game, which makes it even better. Like... how many times do things like that have to happen to him in an Iron Bowl before he realizes Gus Malazahn is a mad gremlin?

    If it can’t be OSU, I would be thrilled to see a Nebraska/PSU/Michigan playoff run/championship

    PSU is on the cusp, but Harbaugh needs to find another level in recruiting key positions. I’m not sure if I see Frost, or anybody, being able to bring Nebraska back to national relevance in this age of national/Blue Chip Ratio recruiting...but it would be cool to see.

    It's more that we need to stop rotating weak recruiting spots. We whiffed at DT three and two years ago and CB two years ago and this year. So there's always a major hole in the roster. There's a true freshman who was coming on strong at DT and got a ton of playing time late, while most everybody on that spot should be back. But now corner is going to be an issue.

    They finally solved the OL issues this year, though they weren't quite the dominant run blocking group I was hoping for. Pass protection was consistently good. And there's a lot of depth there. WR is good, QB is solid. RB could use some reinforcements. Feel comfortable at LB and DE. DB though is going to be a mess. So Brown will scrape something together that disguises his deficiency at DB because he can out talent most teams and get enough pressure for it to not matter. Then we'll play OSU with their 25 5*s and it won't work.

    Yeah this is a good way of putting it. Michigan has a talented roster, but having depth at one position doesn’t help when you’ve got a key weakness at, say, OL or QB or secondary (as has been the case).

    OSU’s last 2 classes were great but tiny- they are screwed if they don’t hit the transfer-portal lottery (as they did this year)

    PSU had it this year, but had the unfortunate luck of Minnesota basically being UCF this year. An overachieving great, but not elite team, who is good for one signature win but can't string it together back to back for heavily physical games at the upper end of P5 level. Flip the timing of us and Iowa against them and I'm pretty sure the Hawk's walk away with a loss at Kinnick and we pull out the victory in Minnesota.

    The other big thing with PSU having a shot to make it, is that we basically sell out our defensive scheme all year long to stop OSU's zone read offense. The flip side of that is we give up dumb shit to well run RPO offenses until we can get adjustments in, as seen by the back half of Michigan, first half of Minnesota, and the Indiana games. Most of that comes from our DE's not sealing the edge properly and rushing far too up into the backfield.

    Though I guess, there is always the outside shot something truly epic and dumb happens and LSU and OSU destroy their opponents, Clemson loses, Utah loses today, Oklahoma loses today but beats Baylor in the championship, that PSU sneaks in at 10-2. I would suspect Oklahoma would probably still get in over us at that point still. Not sure who else would get that 4th spot though. Maybe the Pac 12 champ?

    Also thank fuck Mehringer is gone. Supposedly if he wasn't gone by tomorrow a ton of WRs were gonna enter the transfer portal.
