The Chargers have just beaten the Colts on MNF and clinched a playoff berth for the first time in Justin Herbert’s career. I’m happy about that, because Herbert is definitely too good to not be in the playoffs. Here are my new tiers for week 17.

Many years there isn’t a team worthy of being put up in that Death Star tier. I’m talking a team like… Read More NFL WEEK 14 TIER LIST | EACH TEAM DESCRIBED IN ONE SENTENCE
Everyone knows not to take the preseason rankings too seriously, yet it’s hard not to fall into the mindset of treating the preseason rankings as if they’re “correct” or at least warranted. That number next to the teams can really fool you, because early on, there’s not a whole lot for us to grab on… Read More How Wrong Were the College Football Preseason Rankings?

The newly updated tiers: There’s just a ton of mediocrity in the league right now. I bumped the 49ers up to the second tier because of how good McCaffrey looked. I know they always beat the Rams, so I don’t know how impressive a win that was, but I think I was a little too… Read More NFL Week 8 Reactions, Hot Takes and Tiers
Guest post by FTP SEC insiders Hunter Jefferson Davis Reagan, and Carter Lee Dawson IV, who are based out of Oxford, Mississippi. Honorable mention: Michigan.

I’m about to fire off some hot takes, here goes: The AP Poll itself is on FRAUD WATCH™: You think Texas is better than Kentucky? I do. I think they’re better than Cincinnati, too. Utah would play them close but I’d take Texas in that game. They’re better than Kansas and Syracuse in my opinion.… Read More College Football Week 6 Reactions: FRAUDS Everywhere?!
