    The B1G AD's that have football teams trying to win a championship need to meet with the incoming commissioner and tell him that teams like Ohio State need to schedule like Alabama. Bama has 3 games that were possible trouble this year: at aTm, LSU, and at Auburn. The week before those 3 games are: bye, bye, and Western Carolina. Getting Penn State the week before The Game is a screw you from a conference that doesn't know how to help out its top contenders.

    It was the ground that made the ball move.

    I believe what happened is that, when he landed on top of the defender with control of the ball, that satisfied the requirement for maintaining possession through the catch so when he rolled over and the ball broke the plane, that was a TD. It didn't matter that the ball moved when it touched the ground after that.

    Good weekend of football.

    Georgia losing was a shocker. Smart is an upgraded Richt but with an actual chance to take it to a higher gear. We all knew LSU had mediocre defense, but didn't think they'd give up 28 to UF this year. Same with Bama and TA&M.

    Hurts and Oklahoma D are who we thought they were. A stat stuffer who will start to make very questionable plays in big games, and a defense that is much improved but very prone to explosive plays. Texas still in a holding pattern to be back.

    MSU looked like a shell of itself against Wisconsin. Some will discount OSUs win, but IMO that was insane to have to play b2b road games of that caliber. Wisconsin, PSU, and TSUN were always going to be the main challenges.

    ND is a good, not great team. They will be until they get a top level combination of line play, WRs, and QB.

    ACC is a dumpster fire. Duke struggled a but with a putrid GTech team

    Heisman sidenote: Don't be shocked if Fields puts up ~50 TDs and doesn't get an invite. This year looks like it's already set to be Tua, Hurts, Burrow, and Taylor. Fields just hasn't but up the yardage needed. Bigger omission would be Hubbard from OkSt.

    I guarantee he gets an invite with 50 TD's. Especially if we go undefeated and that includes 2 wins over Wiscy and Taylor

    Let's wait and see on Taylor

    He was just held to 80 yds/3.1 ypc stat line by the first defense with a pulse that he faced.

    OSU's defense is just as good, if not better, won't be near as beat up AND has an offense that can keep it's defense rested.

    It's still very much a team award. The 50TD QB of an undefeated playoff team is most likely going to get an invite at the very least. I think Fields best days are in front of him to boot.

    Ceedee Lamb is more important to OUs offense than Hurts, from what I saw yesterday.

    It just looks that way because a B12 defense decided to play B12 defense.

    (but seriously....that kid is goooooood)

    Was Ceedee Lamb named after the compact disc?

    I'd still hesitate to even call Smart an upgrade. So far his Georgia teams have looked exactly like Richt's. They're probably gonna get blown out by Florida, make the SEC Championship, get a 20 point lead on Bama, then choke it away in epic fashion. Then they're gonna go to a meaningless bowl game and lose that because "They didn't wanna be there" or some shit.

    I get what you are going for here but the winner of the cocktail party this year is going to win the SEC East* (assuming they can take care of freaking Mizzou)



    *why, in the name of Vasco De Gama, is Missouri in the SEC East?

    He's taken them farther than they would have gone if Richt stayed.
    But I think it's still the Honeymoon period... with both recruits and media.
    He's definitely getting some recruits Richt was letting escape**, but... it's starting to feel that the results will end up the same a couple years from now.
    Has any other Saban acolyte made it as Conference Champions? (I do not consider Dantonio part of Saban's tree)

    **thank you BTW... that period in history is no small part why I'd entertain adding GTech.

    Jimbo has a Natty.

    Muschamp and Shark Humper both have division but not conf championships.
