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 Baylor, West Virginia, Nebraska, 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.
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!
Few things in life are as satisfying as being RIGHT (one of those is winning 4 titles in 7 years). Jeremy believed in his beloved Tigers, and they showed up in a big way against the buffet warriors of Arkansas. They have turned things around and become a legit top-25 team. Happy?
Also: Bama overwhelmed another top-10 opponent. Yawn, I guess.
If you’re not Alabama, you either lost or won a squeaker this weekend. Let Jeremy and Carey take you through how it all breaks down: from NC State’s adoption of the Adam Griffith School of Field Goals to Mark Richt bringing the “big game” mentality to the U.
Our first podcast! Well, shit. There goes the neighborhood. On Auburn’s loss to LSU and Bama’s ugly win, plus a whole bunch o’ rabbit trails.
