To those new to betting, you can't pick 2 🙂

Just because I’m in the middle of a cold stretch of betting doesn’t mean you can call me a beginner. 😂 Plus no Sportsbook would ever set an over/under at 2. It would either be 1.5 or 2.5. Haha

I'll set the o/u at 2.

How many teams of these three make the playoffs next season?

Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson.

Two, with Bama and Clemson in the Natty.

JA it’s still too soon after the loss last night to be writing off our guys for next year already. We’ll have our chance and I like our odds. Ryan Day will still be head coach. The window isn’t shutting any time soon. Haha

Fields, Sermon, Olave, gone.  Farrell and Ruckert probably gone.  All 3 starting linebackers gone, Wade - our best bad corner gone.  I thought he some good moments with a lot of bad moments.  I see a young team on both sides of the ball playing.  With youth there will be growing pains.

Stroud throwing to the best receiving core in the country. I mean if Alabama could make it work with Mac Jones and Florida made it work with Kyle Trask, Ryan Day certainly can make it work with Stroud. Henderson will likely play a JK Dobbins freshman year type role at RB being spelled by Miyan. Minimum of 3 of the 5 starting OL being 5 star guys and moving Miller back to his natural position of center. I could see Donovan Jackson being the Michael Jordan and coming in and starting immediately. Defense I feel like Togiai, Garrett, and Smith will come back. Harrison and Friday will be huge. Sawyer will get a lot of run as all of LJ’s stud freshman DL do. Plus the potential of JTT as well. The only true youth that is a question mark would be LB and in the back end just like this year, but all those guys in the back end besides Wade will be back with great youth coming in. Plus we’re entering in to true free agency in college football. Ohio State will have their pick of the litter for sure to sure up any places they feel they are weak at with returning players. I think this team will be very similar to 2019 in all honesty. I’m ecstatic about the team next year.

3) Ohio State 

4) Oklahoma 

5) Georgia 

6) Notre Dame 

7) North Carolina

8 USC 

9) Iowa State

10) Texas 

 

 

Just curious, why Clemson at one?  You know something I don’t? I feel like Clemson was too high on every one of those.

Most proven young QB of the top 3 teams and most of the defense returns. There won’t be a QB competition at Clemson next year whereas Ohio State and Alabama will likely wait until the 1st game to name their starters. I think the 2 games experience DJ has starting gives him time to reflect more on the things he does well and things he needs to improve upon as well as having the entire offseason to know he’s the guy and having that expectation set with the team gives them a head start.

Man, you just bolstered my confidence in this next season. It will be interesting, I think the same usual suspects are going to be around the top 4 spots. What concerns me about Clemson is the lines on both sides. I know they were somewhat younger this year but we got straight man handled by your Buckeyes. I think Bama will be king again next year and I’m also really high on the Sooners. I think it’s OSU, Clemson and the others after that. I know UC returns Ridder, I would love to see the Bearcats sniff around the playoffs again. No idea what Georgia, A&M, ND, and Northwestern return. Hopefully it’s a “normal” season of college football.

I’m really high the Sooners heading in to next year as well. They should be firmly in that top 4 group which I think are all pretty close but all have questions that need to be answered heading in to next year. Georgia is definitely the second best team in SEC again but that matchup with Clemson week 1 is going to be really interesting. I don’t see UGA winning that game, but they could roll through the rest of their schedule (I don’t think they play Bama but I’m not 100% sure) and JT Daniels should be really good. A&M had their chance this year imo and will drop back a bit to a 10-2, 9-3 type team next year. Notre Dame is a wildcard because Book is gone but I think they will be right in the thick of the playoff discussion again at the end of the year. Northwestern is meh. They were a good mix of veteran and really young players on both sides of the ball, but I think Wisconsin will take back the West this year. Penn State will bounce back. They don’t deserve to be ranked in the top 10 pre season or even really top 25 if we’re being honest, but they just have too much talent to not get back to form next year. The ACC and B1G are still going to really only have 2 legit contenders though. Iowa State could be a real sleeper though. They return a ton. I truly think this may be the year we might be able to say Texas might actually be back. Casey Thompson will be an upgrade in the passing game over Ehlinger and Bijan Robinson may very well be the best returning running back in the country. I don’t really buy in the debates of which conference is best, but if I did the Big 12 has a solid case to be the best conference heading in to next season. Man the offseason sucks.

Huge news for Clemson and their fans. Justyn Ross is returning for his senior year after sitting out with the neck/spine injury.

This is one I actually agree with. He’s still taking a gamble because he could come away with literally nothing if the injury concern persists, but if he can show well, he can restore his first round status.
