leave it to me to crap the bed on the final week lol


Not 100% sure this is the final week. Not sure if Norm plans on going through the Super Bowl. Still 3 weeks left in the NFL at least.

I assumed it was since it was college and NFL. I will still crap the bed since college was keeping me in it.

I found this quite funny considering this was from Ohio State lol

I think Kyler Murry wins it because of Tua played on a bad leg in the SEC and could not perform to his normal play. Kyler played great all season long even though he could not get the lead for his team big enough so he could rest. And  unlike Kyler and Haskins he didn't lose a game to a lower ranked or unranked team. ;)

All in all nice job by ohio state, this is what college football is about.

How do you guys see the playoffs shaping up? Me I am nervous of OU for several reasons, the spread that they run, they run with perfection. Our DB's can be had on pass plays and our LB play is not what it has been under Saban.   

On the other hand Big 12 isnt known great defense (this 2018 Bama defense is not great, its above average at best) I watched Mack Wilson let the TE or G seal him off from plays (vs UGA) that other Saban players would have went for the carrier and stuffed a run.  OU's Defense can be had they let plenty of teams score points and looks like we may have to win a shoot out. 

If Tua is healthy I like our chances, Jalen is improved, and God bless him for winning that game for us last week, but of the teams we have to face, OU is the one I feared lol.

Clemson gets a bye and faces the winner of Bama/OU.

He should’ve gotten fired months ago for protecting an abuser on his staff and then lying about it to investigators that didn’t have the guts to call him out on it because he won a championship for the university. Fuck him and fuck anyone that protected him. Hell of a coach but one detestable human being and a scumbag.

But this time he’s retired for sure, for “health reasons” (again). He’ll spend time with his family, just like he did when he left Florida and spent so much more time with his family at ESPN.

So naturally, he’ll be back coaching somewhere by 2020 because after all the bullshit he’s said in the past why the hell would anyone believe what he’s got to say now?

I agree, when he was caught lying he should have been fired. But they got their due with that bad loss  lol. To be honest I thought Kelly would have Notre Dame a dumpster fire by now, and Meyer would have moved into that job soon.

Thai brings up a good point, Helton got an extra year, they probably said lets play the Urban lottery and looks like the likely choice.

What is everyone's thought on the Urban stepping down?
I am not sure what to think of it. I am sure he left the SEC because Saban came in, and other schools started getting good, and the SEC botched the Cam Newton thing, so he left.

My thought with the scandal, and if Michigan becomes the power it could become, he may be hard pressed to keep them happy there.

Stop me if you heard this before, Bama is losing by 2 scores in the 2nd half, the defense holds UGA to 1 score and the back up QB comes in and leads the team to a championship?

I think when Tua sprained his ankle in the 1st Qtr he was not able to plant his foot, and had an off game. That may have cost him the Heisman, but at least we get the SEC title.

I have always kinda liked Leach for his outspoken ways.

But when you are outspoken and really don't have a clue as to what you are talking about.

https://sports.yahoo.com/doesnt-make-sense-no-13-washington-state-upset-fall-rankings-020100637.html

The article doesnt go into it like I had hoped but he made reference to SEC teams playing FCS teams and maybe the pac 12 should do that and get higher rankings instead of playing 9 conference games (heard on the radio this morning)

Lets Break down WSU's powerful schedule shall we?

Wyoming (6-6)
SJSU (1-11)
E Washington (FCS)
USC (5-7) and lost to them
Utah (9-3)
Or State (2-10)
Oregon (8-4)
Stanford (7-4)
Cal (7-4)
Colo (5-7)
Arizona (5-7)
Washington (9-3)

I am sorry You guys played a FCS team your self. Want to be rated higher? Beat 5-7 USC, and then Beat Washington and you guys are in the talk for the playoffs.  Not trying to throw shade at Washington here, but Washington lost to Auburn who finished 5th in the SEC west.  They should have finished one lower but somehow A&M choked away that win.

He cried about having to play 9 conference games SEC/ACC teams playing 8.

But you cant convince me that playing 9 conference games is better when you have
Oregon State at 2-10
Rutgers at 1-11
Kansas 3-8
Illinois 4-8
Arkansas 2-10
North Carolina 2-9
Louisville 2-10
UCLA 3-9
Oregon State 2-10

I found it funny he threw shade for teams playing FCS teams and played one himself.

Keep crying about having to play a game against 2-10 teams.

I think playing a 8-4 Arkansas State , 6-6 Tulane, 9-2 Army is more respectable than that 9th game against 2-10 Oregon State, Kansas, Arkansas etc....

BTW started this to get some football debate going, would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Mack Brown to become UNC football coach. This is the year of the re treads in coaching.
https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2807846-mack-brown-reportedly-agrees-to-become-unc-head-football-coach

It is always the year of the re tread.  So few programs want to risk it all on a new guy.
