Alabama fan here, but OK let's say A&M falls to No. 6 and Florida moves up to No. 5. So what? All A&M has to do is win out. Alabama will beat Florida in the SEC title game, so that eliminates Florida. Ohio State is on the verge of eliminating itself thanks to Covid, and Clemson will lose to Notre Dame again. So, Bama, Notre Dame, A&M and Cincinnati will go to the playoffs. LOL, OK maybe not Cincinnati but I think the Aggies, although they didn't set the world on fire Saturday night only need to win out and wait.
Notre Dame beat a team that has lost to Florida State and Virginia. Notre Dame beat a team that gave up 53 points to Wake Forest and barely beat Boston College and gave up 45 against Virginia Teach. I don't think Kirk knows what complete football is any longer. Notre Dame would not keep Alabama out of the end zone for three quarters. Sorry, Kirk.
Bart Starr won two Super Bowls, Joe Namath won one and Kenny Stabler won one.
I agree. I don't understand why these experts keep putting both the Irish and Clemson in. That would have the two playing each other three times. What if Clemson were to lose to either Pitt or VT, Notre Dame loses to North Carolina and Clemson beats Notre Dame? Neither are in. Northwestern beats Ohio State. Well that puts Northwestern in with Alabama, Texas A&M (if it runs the table) and Cincinnati (also, if it runs the table). I know, far fetched, but so is Notre Dame and Clemson both getting into the playoffs.
If Clemson and Notre Dame win out, play each other in the ACC title game, I do not see the loser getting in. A loss by Clemson would be its second. So, the Tigers are out. However, a loss by Notre Dame in the title game could spell disaster for the Irish, because they had to go to OT to beat Clemson with its backup QB. So, if Bama wins out and A&M wins out, I think the Aggies are in.
So how is Alabama still at the No. 1 seed and Florida comes in at No.4? The only way Florida gets in is if it beats Alabama. It not, the Gators have two losses and will be out. These selections make no sense because if the Gators beat Bama, the Tide will not be the top seed. That's why these guys are not associated with the top conference in the country. And Urban with both of his former schools in the playoffs? Come on man.
CBS makes interesting decision when replacing Ole Miss-Texas A&M game for Saturday’s 3:30 p.m. ET time slot
Why would the SEC Network not give up Bama and Kentucky for a larger audience?
And before Saban beat Alabama in 2000, the last time LSU beat Bama in Baton Rouge was 1969. So if I were LSU, I would enjoy the title they won last year and just sit down and shut up. When you get to 17 get back to us. They missed an ass whipping today.
* fake reality shows.
Why ESPN and ABC chose to go down this road is puzzling. This may have been the most-watched draft, but it was also the worst draft as far as content. Disney tried to make it like American Idol where every contestant either comes from a broken home, death, suicide, drug addiction, love of trees, birds, whatever. All we cared about was the draft and the players. Not their backstories. We get enough of that from your fact reality shows. I couldn't even watch the second and third days of broadcast. The first round was terrible enough. And why Trey Wingo? Where are the regulars who do the draft?
Surprised Moss was not drafted....RTR
What would one game do? I think they should do it once a year. Pretty sure Nick is the one that doesn't want to do it.
How many times has Kirby beaten Nick? Yep, that's right.
Stole from Saban? Kinda like Kirby who has yet to beat him? Just remember this, he asked Saban for a coaching position and Saban told him no. So that should tell you how ready he is for the position. LOL, and then he has to use Alabama players to pump up his pride? Why not put together a poster of UGA players he is going to coach this year? Not good enough?
Trey Wingo destroyed Scott Frost following Joe Burrow’s No. 1 overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft
You can't say anything to Frost about his decision here. Who knew Joe was going to go off like he did? No one. He had a great team at LSU and a coaching staff that had one hell of a year. What you can say about Frost is he has been a bust at Nebraska. But that's what happens after winning a mythical national title. Sorry, too soon?
Fabien Lovett’s father explains why his son entered transfer portal after Mike Leach’s offensive tweet
Why is dad the one doing the taking? And which schools are texting dad for the rights to his son's services? Dad finds out son is not expected to play a lot under the new coach so he looks for a reason and got one. Dad and son are snowflakes so I am sure no SEC team will look at him. Pac 12 here he comes.
Just curious, and hopefully not, but she had some health problems and I wonder if they have crept back up and maybe he doesn't have time since he has found fame with the national title. Hope I am wrong, but why would you file for divorce, especially the man, after 23 years together? Sorry to hear it. Sorry to hear it for anyone.
Why are LSU fans here touted Coach O about his PSA when his sorry ass just filed for divorce on his wife? Coach O is better on and off the field? I think you may need to re-think that statement.
And this is coming from a national championship program? I mean, how much money did you spend on those cubic zirconia rings you had made up? Danny White this is embarrassing, even coming from you. I mean your rants against Alabama were embarrassing enough because you would have gotten your asses handed to you. But now this? Resign, you are terrible for football.
But you can report all of the professional players and coaches names who get this virus? Another liberal media outlet lying to everyone.
I was thinking the same thing....and the story is well...nothing that thousands of others are thinking....slow day for sure.
I saw the second half of this game and the coach was sick on the bench the entire half. He needs his ass kicked for not leaving the bench and possibly passing anything that he has to his assistants (who were sitting right next to him), his players and the fans right behind him. Ignorance.
Pump the brakes on the Tua Tagovailoa hype? Dolphins reportedly not sold on former Alabama quarterback
It would have been a good idea to add to your story that Tua is not going to participate in the combine. Or did you not know that?
I bleed Crimson, however, if Cincinnati passes on Joe Burrow then, well, they get what they deserve. That young man is truly going to be tremendous in the NFL, as will Tua. Cincinnati can't be that dumb, can it?
Just not a fan of the conference ties to bowls. Not a shot at UGA fans, however, if Alabama had been in the Sugar Bowl it would have been packed. Bama fans just travel better. However, Baylor was the bad choice here, not UGA. A Bama vs. UGA Sugar Bowl would have been entertaining. But that can't happen because of the conference ties. Although we do get to see that early next year during the 2020 season.
I really do not see where you are coming from. You've seen them handed a playoff ticket during fall practice? When may I ask were those years? And give us more than that moronic statement.
You know one thing Gary won't have to worry about after Saturday. Watching Georgia in the playoffs because they will get whipped Saturday. Georgia has that bridesmaid role down better than any team in the country.
Dear God man, are you on suicide watch? "The run is over"? It will be OK...I mean Bama can't win it every year....relax.
Well, when you are not used to winning at this level you tend to not be able to handle it properly. Coach O is the perfect example.
Gary Danielson says CFP should consider recent history if Alabama wins Iron Bowl without Tua Tagovailoa
Would not be surprised to see Tagovailoa's brother play against W. Carolina. Then, who knows.
