Title: 2017 College Football
Post by: 01101010 on September 03, 2017, 10:21:20 AM
The college season is now underway (well it's week 2, but week one for the big conferences).
FL got rocked by Michigan - I was pretty giddy about this game. Michigan looked solid in the second half, but man... they need their QB to settle down. Hope this was first game jitters. Both his pick-6s were just awful. But FL just fell on its face which pleases me.

Bama is rolling along as usual... along with the rest of the conference sans FL. Really want to see Tenn lose tomorrow for more haha's. UGA is going to run away with the East.

USC looks overrated yet again even having the preordained Heisman winner and soon to be first-round QB. They won and I don't discredit E.Mich since they are a tough team, but they are still not Div I tough. Ohio St looked suspect till they woke up in the second half. The Mich-tOSU game should be good if they keep rolling along if tOSU can keep from tripping on OK next week.

Texas... LMAO. Yeah... probably not this year.

Bama will win the SEC because there's no real competition yet, the East still sucks and Georgia isn't good enough to beat them on a big stage unless a miracle happens.

ACC is now a three-horse race between Miami and Clemson/Louisville. FSU losing their QB means they are fucked.

Ohio State and Michigan will play for the Big 10 again because nobody there is good enough to test them.

The PAC-12 is really a 2-horse race between USC and Washington again, unless Stanford turns out to be for real and beats USC. And if that happens and they all fuck each other up, the PAC-12 gets left out this season in favor of...

Oklahoma who is the only show in town in the Big12 since I don't believe in OKst, TCU, or KSt. OU can take one loss against Ohio State, win out, and still get in the tournament. I can't say that about USC if they lose to Stanford.

I never see the SEC/Big10/ACC getting left out currently unless something bizarre happens and you have a 2-loss champ. That means it's a war between the PAC and Big12 for the final slot, and OU will have the best resume of the two if they only take one loss.

Yeah Bama in the SEC is pretyt much the only top tier team there. The second tier is pretty established, but nothing coming out to challenge Bama at this point.

I'm not counting Penn St out of the B1G. They will be a sleeper again... not enough to push OSU/MICH out of the spotlight and the dance, but I don't think the B1G champ will be left out again.

I think Miami is still a year or two out from making a run.

OU just flipped the tables. Now the Big 10 is in moderate trouble.

If Michigan loses to Ohio State, the Big 10 could be fucked out of a tournament spot by an undefeated OU, an undefeated USC, Alabama, and Clemson (assuming they get past Louisville).

If Michigan wins out, they will go to the tournament easily.

But if Alabama or Clemson only take one loss or better, the schedule strength comes into play, and Alabama and Clemson play tougher schedules than Ohio State.

I highly doubt USC goes without a loss or two. Dunno who or when, but it'll happen. tOSU got a dose of reality and humble pie. I don't like Mich or tOSU but I don't like tOSU more. I'm definitely pulling for Penn St.

Penn State is and always has been a fake team since the scandal. They lost to Pitt last season, in addition to losing to Michigan. Yes, they beat a highly overrated Ohio State team who got absolutely SMASHED by Clemson when they got on a real stage. Yes, they beat Wisconsin because the Badgers forgot you needed to actually score points in the second half to win a football game.

But if you put Penn State up against Michigan, Ohio State, and Michigan State all in a row this year? They lose two of those games because Michigan is better than them, and Ohio State and Michigan State are road games. They don't survive that stretch. And frankly if Penn State is the de facto champ again this season I think the Big 10 gets left out too.

I had no issue with getting rid of him. His offensive schemes were ancient and not working well in the new era of the spread and he never developed a QB, only game managers who had above average WRs. He had the defenses which carried 80% of that team. Seems that is now gone the way of their QB play as well.

Not getting Jimbo Fisher was a black mark (though FSU is lollerskates currently). Big Ed will last maybe to game 3 next year and the AD will be right with him on the way out and it will be full rebuild mode. Recruiting will tank till 2020. I'm just going to focus on our good runs in the past 15 years (starting after DiNardo).

I agreed with getting rid of Les too actually, I was being facetious. The main issue I had was LSU's organization structure completely fucking up the process twice, thinking they were somehow this amazing job that nobody would turn down, getting rejected, and then pretending that Coach O was their first choice.

It was just a hilarious bit of mismanagement. And people should be fired for it.

Agreed. LSU is now an afterthought in the SEC. Thankfully, the SEC as a whole is in its twilight right now with Bama and UGA really being the only teams that look dominant. The rich will get richer from here on out until the next major shift in hiring.

B1G and the ACC is the new hotness.

Ed Orgeron was not the best hire.  Les really lost his luster once he stopped being a lunatic and started trying to play conventional football.

It's not surprising that the administration fucked the hiring process up, considering what a giant clusterfuck of a state that this is.

Can't just blame the SEC for the shit schedule.  Nobody else is playing anyone of note, either, except for Wisconsin. 

Even the conference games suck.  Who wants to watch Georgia take out their frustrations on Kentucky?

I was playing poker and didn't see the entire sequence, but I did wonder how the fuck UW got the ball back with so much time. That is crazy.


Title: Re: 2017 College Football
Post by: Abagadro on November 19, 2017, 03:43:25 AM
UW got the ball back with 29 seconds left with no TOs at their own 40. They ran a run play in bounds basically conceding OT. Our dumb-ass coach for reasons I will never, NEVER understand called TO (Utes had 2, so even if UW just takes knees utah will never get the ball back).  Peterson clearly takes this as a fuck you, so runs two 20 yard pass plays, kicks field goal, wins.  I mean, what the fuck.


Title: Re: 2017 College Football
Post by: WayAbvPar on November 19, 2017, 12:47:24 PM
LOL wow.

I don't get the UW offense. They look unstoppable at times, and other times just tapdance all over their dicks. Browning's decision making is suspect, I think.

Tennessee trying to hire Greg Schiano and the entire state is melting down.   :why_so_serious:
So I guess they are going to abort the hiring.


Why they would do that, in the first place, is beyond baffling. 


Title: Re: 2017 College Football
Post by: Paelos on November 27, 2017, 10:27:14 AM
Tennessee's AD is a complete numbnuts. They haven't made a good hire in that place in decades, and it's all because their leadership is rotten from the core.

If anything I'd clean house from top to bottom and just start over.

No idea why he'd take TxAM over LSU last year other than FSU is in complete shut down and he didn't see it coming.

In other news, Tennessee is a complete mess.

Let's review my BS predictions from September. I was wrong on Bama due to injuries and Auburn outperforming expectations. Georgia might win this thing.
Absolutely correct on the ACC, it's down to Miami and Clemson. FSU was awful after the QB loss and their coach bailed.
Half right on the Big 10, I didn't see Wisconsin coming. Ohio State will still likely win that conference.
I surrounded USC and Standford which did turn out to be for real. And they did fuck each other all up.
Oklahoma is the only show in town. They will get in the tournament over the Pac-12 if they win out.
I was correct on the SEC/ACC part. I still don't think a 2 loss Ohio State is getting left out, and a no-loss Wisconsin certainly isn't. Which means it's going to be SEC Champ, ACC Champ, OU, and Big 10 champ. Bama gets left out.

Well yeah, but Jimbo has a history at LSU and I'm pretty sure he could have wrote whatever number he wanted on the check. That said, TxAM just signed over the farm for a coach who will probably avg 8 wins a year unless he can somehow recruit better than Saban and Ogre.

I'm really pulling for Wisconsin. Long shot, but not completely a lost cause.

If TCU pulls out a win over OU I'm going to be a happy camper. It'll be hilarious to have Bama sneak in the back door.

So far OU (though TCU made it pretty easy for them) and whoever wins this SEC game look like very solid playoff teams. Here's hoping the other two big games are played to similar levels of competence and we get a good field minus Alabama because zzzz roll fuck yourselves shitlords.


Title: Re: 2017 College Football
Post by: ghost on December 03, 2017, 10:23:40 AM
Hmm.  Bama or tOSU....tough decision.  They could honestly just flip a coin, but I think I'd prefer to not see two SEC teams in the playoff, just to make it more interesting.  The LSU/Bama title game a few years ago was a snoozer.

Looks like Bama was the choice.  Both teams have legitimate reasons to be left out.  Still, Bama could win the whole thing and I don't think tOSU would be able to make it happen.


Title: Re: 2017 College Football
Post by: Hawkbit on December 03, 2017, 01:40:16 PM
As a very passive tOSU fan, I'm a bit bummed to see them not chosen. IMO, each conference champ should be automatically asked to the playoffs, maybe even expanding the playoffs to 8 or 16 teams.

From a business/ratings perspective - the choice is dumber than a bucket full of hair. All four teams are in the same general quadrant of the US. We have no incentive to watch any of the games, nor do many other folks in the country.

Post by: Hoax on December 03, 2017, 02:52:15 PM
As a very rabid tOSU fan I firmly believe it was the correct decision and I'm annoyed/relieved because fuck Bama but kinda fuck seeing Prince play against that Clemson d-line.

What really makes me mad? The Rose Bowl won't be B1G champ Ohio State vs Pac champ USC in Pasadena. It will be OU vs UGA and the rightful Rose Bowl game will take place in Texas. Not on New Years.

Fuck

Eh, the Rose Bowl and Co sold out years ago.  Just how it's going to be.  

I, personally, preferred the old system of bowls prior to the BCS, but I assume I'm in the minority on that one.  Should be a good playoff, though.  As long as Clemson doesn't win.   :oh_i_see:
