  1. I’m not sure how this season is really any different than the majority of Harbaughs seasons at UM. This is what they do. I was at the game Saturday. Michigan got dominated by Nebraska physically in that game. Credit to Michigan for not making the mistakes and winning the game, but that’s not an elite football team. At the end of the day, I don’t think they’re better than OSU, PSU, or MSU. If they can win 1 of those games and finish 10-2 Harbaugh will likely be fine. If they lose all 3 (which I think they will) it’s the same situation over and over again.
  2. Morning after thoughts: Stroud is going to be really good. He’s Dwayne Haskins when it comes to talent. He will never be Fields. No one will. Just need him to have Fields work ethic with Haskins talent and this team will be just fine. I think he has that. He’ll make mistakes, but Olave and Wilson will bail him out until he gets comfortable. No worries at all when it comes to Stroud. Ohio States ability to win a national championship does not rest on his shoulders. Denzel Burke is a freshman all-American and I don’t think you can take him off the field the rest of the year even when B
  3. I think Teddy Bridgewater is the perfect comparison.
  4. I think he gives him the full Justin Fields playbook.
  5. I think Day is going to throw Stroud to the wolves on Thursday and I think he’ll be just fine. Have to see it to believe it with the back 7 but looking forward to seeing how they utilize the “bullet” position.
  6. FOX is facilitating those talks.
  7. So essentially this has more to do with FOX than it does anything else. New conference and playoff tv deals are coming up. Fox and the Big 10 are obviously tied at the hip like the SEC and ESPN are. Adding OU and Texas essentially behind everyone’s back while pushing the agenda for playoff expansion that would clearly favor the new SEC that not only would have 2 more teams than any other teams but those 2 teams are a top 5 program in the country right now and the most profitable program in the country. The announcement of the “alliance” was fumbled. There was no need for an announcement except
  8. Very excited about the upcoming season but also a bit concerned. Supposedly the theme is a back to basics season. I’ve been rewatching some old seasons occasionally over the past year of so and the older seasons just allowed for so much more character development and story arcs. I loved that aspect of the show but if they can combine that with the more recent seasons better filming it will be perfect. I don’t understand the need for dropping essentially 2 weeks off of the show. There will now be a tribal council every other day and I’m not sure that will be a good change to the show.
  9. From what I’ve taken away from the whole ordeal is that A&M wasn’t let in on the conversations and was purposely left out of the conversations. I think they have a right to be upset about that.
  10. Agreed. I consider myself a supporter of G5 football. That’s why even though they will be included in the new 12 team system, they should really just have their own playoff. I’d even be fine with making it a P6 by adding the AAC because despite not being on the P5 level, they are clearly leaps and bounds better than every other G5 league. But the MAC, Mountain West, Sun Belt, and CUSA aren’t in a position where they deserve to be given an automatic spot just to be fodder for Alabama.
  11. Since we have adopted the 4 team playoff has there been a year where we are left with doubt that the team that won was the best team? No. That’s the goal and it’s working extremely well as far as I’m concerned. Every team in a power 5 conference going in to the season does control their own destiny going in to the season. Don’t lose. It’s that simple. Under the current structure, no power 5 team is going to be left out if they win their conference. It won’t happen. So they already control their destiny. If they lose a game then they lose the right to control their own destiny because if other
  12. Exactly. People are infatuated with this idea of upsets. But upsets happen in the regular season of college football. They rarely happen in the college football playoff. I’m not sure we’ve had a legit upset (more than a 1or 2 point spread) in the playoff since the first year when Ohio State upset Bama and Oregon. Upsets can and likely will happen in those 5-12 seeds in the first round because that’s where its tougher to differentiate and all of those teams have shown multiple weaknesses that have been exploited at times during the regular season and caused them to lose a game or two. At the en
  13. But at least season ticket holders will get to go. Not having to add in insane travel costs make it more reasonable for the average fan. The average fan if they really wanted to, could probably come up with a $1000 for an experience of a lifetime to go to a playoff game at their home field. Traveling to another part of the country and paying $5k plus is just out of the question for almost all of us. I’ve always agreed with your point that automatic qualifiers are a no go. No reason for a team with 4 losses to automatically get in. The 4 highest ranked champions is a good compromise b
  14. My thing with college football and part of why I love it so much is the best team gets crowned national champion every single year. That’s the goal of the season from my perspective. Find the best team. College football does that better than any sport in the US. If Alabama, Clemson, or Ohio State win it every year then so be it. I’m fine with that. Despite me hating Bama, I don’t get tired of them winning it because I just want to see the best team. That’s why I, despite growing up in Kentucky, never got along with college basketball. The best team doesn’t always win. The NCAA Tournament means
