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: They are who some of us thought they were

24 Oct , 2016  

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?

Auburn gave Bert more runs than a late-night trip to Taco Bell.

Auburn gave Bert more runs than a late-night trip to Taco Bell.

  • Houston falls again (Jeremy called it)
  • Ole Miss ain’t all that (Jeremy knew it pre-season)
  • Ohio State falls, finally (didn’t Jeremy once ask “who have they played?”)
  • Oregon is in free fall (Jeremy had a dream once that was a metaphor for that happening).

Also: Bama overwhelmed another top-10 opponent.  Yawn, I guess.

Week 7 Recap: Light ’em up… or just squeak by

17 Oct , 2016  

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.
