National Scene 2021(Not BIG)


Recommended Posts

Been trying to keep up on the Spenser Rattler situation.  It appears he is staying at OU for at least football season and then decide on what's next.  I am just curious as to how many phone calls he has to be getting.  LOL.  Has Tom Allen reached out to him?

Yes. Haha.

Right now it's Georgia...and the rest. If Georgia beats Bama in SEC title game the folks in Cincy and Oklahoma might breathe a little easier....but if Bama wins you have Georgia/Bama in for sure and final 2 will come from Ohio St, Cincy, and Oklahoma...with strength of schedule being the key. Cincy's schedule strength isn't getting any better with only 1 chance (SMU) to impress vs anyone in top 25.

I think it was 2014 where TCU came in as #3 in final week or so and fell back to 6 without playing a game. Could see the same with Cincy come conference championship week.

Oklahoma isn't the #3 team in country but they at least have a few more chances to impress.

As it stands today my top 4 would be Georgia, Ohio St, Bama, and Cincy.

As they always say, lots of football to be played.  Georgia is probably the only team you can ink in.  Anyone else, one loss and they will be out, unless multiple teams wind up losing one more, which is likely.  I could see Cincinnati coughing one up, Oklahoma finally, Bama probably not, Ohio State probably not.

Until they lose again, Oregon has to be in the conversation simply because of how they beat the Bucknuts in Columbus. If Oklahoma State beats Oklahoma and goes on to win the Big 12, they stay in the conversation.

Too early to whittle it down so much, Imo

Very true on Oregon.

As far as the whittling, I would say it is safe to say we can eliminate Purdue from any CFP discussion.

Watching bits and pieces of the Peeyuu vs. Neb. game and they showed a potential FB playoff list. Looks like 1 loss Alabama has crept back in, but, are you ready for this? pUKe as the 4th playoff team?? 🤮

That was what the announcer thought it should be

Seems the SEC is starting their drip campaign early...saw this on twiter. Have to hand it to SEC. They get their teams in.

Cincinnati is one of six remaining undefeated teams in the FBS, but even at 13-0, its playoff resume would be worse than any of the CFP teams in the first 6 yrs of the CFP, according to

9 FBS teams would have a better resume even w/ 1 loss.

The Bearcats are just a victim of being in the AAC.  Their conference opponents do little for their SoS.

I really will and do feel bad for them....even with a month of football left I'm pretty confident they won't be in CFP. The other one that's going to cause problems is when Ohio St gets in over Oregon.

Funny, I feel like UC is in if they run the table.  And Oregon still has a date @ Utah.

I don't feel bad for them. Cincinnati really isn't helping their case as much as they should if they're really a CFP team.

Everybody knows we had them on the ropes until the targeting call, and they've really struggled against horrible Navy and Tulsa teams the last 2 weeks. If they were routinely beating teams by 40+ they'd easily be in. They just aren't passing the optics test lately.

Just not seeing it. UC has to hope Georgia beats Bama in SEC title game but even if that happens I could see Oregon (if they beat Utah) and Ohio St getting in before them. Just the way it is for Non P5 teams....
