The news just broke. The funny part was, Lincoln Riley was asked about the rumors he was taking the LSU job last night and said, “I’m not going to be the next head coach of LSU.” Well, he wasn’t lying. Right off the bat, I think you have to view this move by Riley in… Read More 🚨🚨 Lincoln Riley to USC!?
After a wild Rivalry Weekend, the conference championships games are all set for next weekend: Notably, we see no Ohio State, no Clemson and no Oklahoma. It has been quite a crazy year. As far as the playoff goes, there is only one conference championship game that can be safely classified as “Win-and-In,” and that’s… Read More College Football Championship Saturday is Set: Georgia-Bama Towers Above All Other Games
Hey, when I predicted the game to be 42-24, it was a typo. I meant 42-24 Michigan, not 42-24 Ohio State. I promise I’m not lying. The first thing that crossed my mind watching Michigan run all over Ohio State is that this game looked exactly like the Ohio State-Oregon game in week 2. Oregon… Read More Michigan Finally Beats Ohio State
The college football world has been consumed with talk about Ohio State-Michigan all week. And rightly so: it’s the biggest game of the year to this point. We have not yet seen two teams each ranked this high square off in a conference game. Most of the talk has been from the perspective of Michigan:… Read More Ohio State-Michigan Deep Dive: Will Michigan’s Star Edge Rushers Make the Difference?
As we head into the final week of the regular season, a clear top-4 remains at the top of the power ratings. Alabama stubbornly remains #1, which surprised me this week given their close shave against Arkansas. I really thought they were going to fall, at least to #2, but they maintain their hold on… Read More College Football Week 13 Power Ratings: Rivalry Week is Upon Us
It was Cupcake Saturday for a lot of teams, mostly in the SEC, but, surprisingly, Ohio State as well. Georgia and Ohio State both won 56-7. The difference was that Georgia played Charleston Southern and Ohio State played #7 Michigan State. If you look just at the final score, it certainly seemed like Ohio State… Read More Ohio State Just Beat #7 Michigan State 56-7 😧
Can’t believe we’ve only got two more regular season college football Saturdays remaining in the 2021 season, but here we are. My power ratings through 11 weeks: Alabama has retaken the #1 spot from Georgia, although this is probably because Alabama played a stat-padder opponent, New Mexico State, this past weekend. But it does go… Read More College Football Week 12 Power Ratings
Over the summer, it became clear that expansion of the playoff is inevitable. While the details have yet to be worked out, and by no means are all the conferences on the same page right now, there seems to be broad agreement that 4 teams is not enough and things have to change. The current… Read More How to Fix College Football
This is where we stand after 10 weeks of college football (although of course most teams have had a bye so they’ve only played 9 games). Georgia and Alabama remain solidified at the top in a class of their own, while Ohio State and Michigan are a bit lower in a tier of their own:… Read More CFB Power Ratings: Week 10
The Committee’s first playoff rankings are in: Okay, at first glance, there are a few interesting takeaways, namely that Oregon is all the way up to #4 despite being #7 in the AP poll. But it’s no surprise that the Committee put Oregon over Ohio State given the head-to-head result. That’s how it should be.… Read More Initial CFP Rankings: 1. Georgia, 2. Alabama, 3. Michigan State, 4. Oregon, 5. Ohio State, 6. Cincinnati
