I'm going with #1 Clemson v. #4 OU ... and # 2 Bama v. # 3 Sparty.
Can I get a spot on the ESPN "experts" show now? I could really use the scratch.
Still think I'd rather be #4 to avoid bama. Ou bama would be a sweet matchup
How loud can you yell? And can you do it for a full hour? How do you feel about threatening NBA MVPs live on camera?
One thing to bear in mind about Sparty: A full month off with no games should do wonders for Connor Cook's shoulder.
Also gives D'Antonio some extra time to prepare. Guy is an excellent coach, he will have his team ready to go.
Alabama and Clemson are overrated.
It's gonna be Sparty vs. the Sooners for the NC.
A guess at non playoff matchups
Rose: Stanford vs. Iowa
Fiesta: Notre Dame vs Ohio State
Sugar: Florida vs Oklahoma State
Peach: Houston vs UNC
I don't see Florida. If it's an SEC team it should be Ole Miss. And FSU might end up rated above UNC out of the ACC.
Despite big game losing, I think Okie wins it. Quarterback factor. That guy is a winner and they have enough talent elsewhere to do it.
Agree with you. Wasn't impressed with Alabama-they beat a team that struggled to complete a forward pass, and Henry did most his damage after the game was not in doubt. If it's Clemson-Mich State, that's a tough one to call. I think Oklahoma will clock Alabama. The sooner d is good enough to take Henry away and Coker can't win a game against a competent offense through the air
And it will be an SEC team. My understanding is the rose is big 10-pac 12 and sugar is big 12-sec in years they don't have semifinals.
I could see Bama winning is if they knock Mayfield out of the game, which I happen to think is a distinct possibility.
What is it...10 freaking bowl teams for the P12? That is some tough sledding for us trying to turn the corner and get to a bowl.
Ratings for MSU vs Bama will be higher than other scenarios out of the first round. Doesn't matter the seeding.
I know some people think it's very "SEC" to think favorably of other teams just because they're in your conference, but having 10 bowl teams raises the profile of the conference for football and it will be very nice for the country to tune into those bowl matchups and see a Pac-12 team. Battling bad start times and a less accessible network are things the conference has working against them nationally. I want sportswriters, fans, and prospective athletes from all over to take notice that the Pac-12 is putting teams into bowls and think CU will benefit from that association even if it comes from other teams' success.
Clemson/Oklahoma in Orange Bowl, Alabama/Michigan State in Cotton Bowl
Selections are in:
3. Michigan State
I wonder how much OU playing in Arlington figured in there with dropping them to 4.
Alabama -9, OU -2.5
Probably a lot. Along with hoping for an OU-Bama championship game.
I think Sparty has a shot here. Best possible matchup for them.
If my guy will give me Mich St +9, I'm betting the mortgage. Those guys are nails.
It´s -10 and -3.5 now, so you should be in good shape.
Iowa/Stanford Rose Bowl
Ole Miss/Okie State Sugar
Committee´s final 25. Looks like Iowa would´ve gotten in over Stanford had there been an upset in Charlotte.
Should be a good Rose Bowl.
Notre Dame/Ohio State Fiesta
Florida State/Houston Peach
Rose and Fiesta clearly the better/more compelling matchups.
