Week 9 Recap: CFP Rush Hour

31 Oct , 2016  

The two-lane blacktop that serves as the only ingress to the College Football Playoffs — that suburban, gated community of college football’s top 1% — is suddenly in a bit of a traffic jam. Typically at this time of year, we wring our hands over the number of unbeaten teams still in contention.  And yet, even though BaylorWest VirginiaNebraska, and Boise State all had their first sad bus ride of the season… things seem even more confused than before.

Yes, we have THE BIG FOUR unbeatens (Bama, Michigan, Clemson, Washington). And if they win out, then this will be the easiest job the CFP Committee has had yet.  But…should one or more falter, we then start the process of determining the best one (or two) loss team(s) ready to step in.

Is it:

  • One loss Louisville (with a quality loss to Clemson) or Texas A&M (with a slightly less quality loss to Bama)?
  • One loss aOSU, with an eye scratching fall to Penn State? Florida, whose sole failure was to now-flailing Tennessee?
  • What about two-loss, but very hot, Wisconsin or Auburn?

We don’t discuss any of that crap in today’s episode, but we will get into civil engineering and traffic faux pas, so buckle up, listen, comment, and share!

Week 8 Recap: Fallout Edition

26 Oct , 2015  

Let’s see… unranked and coach-less USC whooped up on previously unbeaten Utah, Clemson got Al Golden fired, FSU’s crazy ACC-win streak got done in by a Kick-6, Auburn’s defense is not playing like a Mus-CHAMP, and Bama just plain doesn’t like playing at home.

Yup. Makes sense.

DERP.  Let's make sure ever-body continues to blame the defense, m'kay?  Boom.
