Thanks! Four top 10 teams losing to unranked opponents makes my job 10x easier.

I subscribe to the theory that Tennessee is waiting until after Bama to pull the trigger. Have Butch take the flak from the L and hope the interim can get bowl eligible.

Indeed. While your team may have performed poorly in Tempe, coed fan performance was on point.

Mentioned in the playoffs for what? As an example of teams that don't qualify?

What National Championship team do you believe didn't deserve to make it to the championship game?

My vote goes to 2007 LSU.

Blows my mind they got elected to the championship game after losing to an unranked Arkansas team in Death Valley in over time the last week of the season, As well as losing to Kentucky in triple overtime.

Feel like picking anyone in '07 is tricky given how much transpired that year. At the very least, you gotta offer up an alternative for that one.

Personally, Alabama in 2011. Were we, at worst, the second best team in the country that season? Absolutely. But given the results of the season, Okie State prolly should've got their shot. I'm glad they didn't, obviously, and I get the argument both ways.

Mizzou should've gotten the nod over LSU that year point blank.

2011 Alabama was my second choice because no two teams from the same conference should ever be playing against each other for the championship. It also should've absolutely been Okie State.

Crushed Memphis and Maryland. If they do the same @ Navy and to USF and of course go undefeated it's not a great resume but it's actually not half bad, especially considering the way UCF has been winning those games.

We played 1 game in the first month. I'm honestly surprised we're ranked this high at all.

The likes of UCF or USF will never have a chance at the CFB, the odds are just completely stacked against non power conference schools. Its fine though, Jan 1 bowl games are cool too

You have to get incredibly lucky with your OOC games and then of course run the table.

It's why I'm in favor of expanding the Playoff to 8 and giving the G5 a guaranteed spot. Sure, there's some years where there wouldn't be a "deserving" team, but it's better than the current situation. May as well make the G5 an FCS equivalent if there's zero chance any of them can make the Playoff.

I agree the best reason to expand playoffs to 8 is to give non power conference schools a shot. It'd be fun to see Alabama obliterate UCF in the 1st round.

Giving UCF any playoff consideration feels like a strong reach.

To be fair (which I hate being with Tennessee), Alabama will probably be favored over our annual cupcake by about 40 points at this point lmao

I would take the over against 10rc, and the under against the FCS cupcake. Why? It seems like FCS teams hang in with Bama for a while, and they actually score a time or two. Saban usually doesn't have much film to work with and scheme against FCS programs like he does for his SEC rivals

It's going to be a slog of a game. O'Korn sucks and Michigan's defense is good enough to make life really uncomfortable for the other side.

The spread is 10.5 which seems high to me since I'm not sure either team will score more than 20. I know Michigan won't.

Nah.

The team tends to stress working on their weaker areas and playing "fundamental football" when we play lesser teams. Plus our backups get in even quicker than usual (though this year, they've entered every game except FSU and A&M early in the 3Q). The idea that Saban watches less film of any team is hilarious lol
