And then there was seven.  That is the number of teams to have made it to Championship Week with their eyes still on the prize.  Let’s not discus what happened Saturday night, we can only go forward so here is what we have left.

Tiers

After all the whining, bitching, and moaning the past few weeks about the committee the path to the playoff looks pretty clean.  Here is how I see it unfolding.

SPOT #1 – Winner of the Big10 takes a spot, loser out.

Michigan St. needs to seen a big gift basket to the Michigan punter for allowing them to even be in this position but if they take care of business against Iowa they will be in.  Iowa is undefeated and at the end of the day no matter how weak their schedule is they will get in.

SPOT #2 – Oklahoma

Not having a championship game killed the Big12 last year but this season it is a God send.  The Sooners are firmly in and get to set back and heal up while the rest of the teams all have something to play for.

SPOT #3 – Alabama

I don’t know what the spread is but it’s not going to be enough.  The best coach in college football has the most talent and will not allow the gators to ever be in this game.  Look for the tide to roll but this is the first spot that could go to an outside team.

SPOT #4 – Clemson

Out of all the teams that control their own fate Clemson has the toughest challenge.  North Carolina has played a schedule that puts them in the same category as Iowa but they have also looked very impressive since their early stumble against S. Carolina.  If Clemson wins they are in.  If not, then you bring OSU back into play.

Here is what happens if there is an upset.

If Alabama loses and Clemson wins. 

Big10 Champ, Oklahoma, Clemson, Ohio St.

If Bama wins and Clemson loses.

Big10 Champ, Oklahoma, Bama, Ohio St.

If both Alabama and Clemson lose.

Big10 Champ, Oklahoma, Ohio St., and it will come down to UNC and Clemson.  Does the committee honor the head to head winner or do they look at the complete body of work?  I don’t think they will have to make this decision but it will be an interesting one.

So there you have it.  What has already been one of the best college football seasons I can remember in some time is heading into the most wonderful time of the year and I don’t want anything to change.  I love the four team playoff and do not want or think it should go to six or eight.  But that is a discussion for another day.

College Football Update

For those of you still out there that don’t watch college football but can’t get enough of the NFL do us all a favor.  Get a vasectomy and stop voting immediately.  This years college season has been down right amazing with as many ups and downs as a Louisville hooker bobbing for apples and once again last week did not disappoint.

We had big guys catching touchdowns.

 

Hoosiers being well Hoosiers (WHY DID YOU STOP RUNNING THE FOOTBALL!!!!) and the Harvard band spelled PENIS.

Four teams still in the playoff hunt took a loss.  Baylor took their first loss but is looking to rebound this week at OK St.  There were three teams that we bid adieu.  Better luck next year LSU, Utah, and Stanford.

This week is going to be another monster will three games highlighting the slate.

Baylor @ Oklahoma St.

Michigan St. @ Ohio St.

TCU @ Oklahoma

Here are this week’s meaningful games.

PLAYOFF

Once again there is a lot of chatter about who is in and who is standing in the cold looking through the window and most people are either stupid or just trying to piss you off.  I’m looking at you Jerry Palm.

There are 4 teams that hold their futures squarely in their hands.  Here are the tiers.

If you want to take a look ahead at who still plays who, here are the remaining schedules for all teams left.

Other than the SEC taking a week off like a bunch of bitches, there are some great games this weekend and we get to see Notre Dame play in Fenway Park.  (somewhere Eric just went down his leg Pitino style)  Enjoy!

Week 10 as predicted was a great one.  We saw three undefeated teams lose (Mich St, LSU, TCU) but live to see another day and we lost three other teams all together (Florida St, Toledo, Memphis).  So what do we have left?  Here are the teams still in the mix and this weeks match-ups.

PLAYOFFLast weeks games sure did mix up the tiers in my eyes.  Even though I thought the committee got it right last week there is no reason to wait on them.  Here is how I see the landscape as of today.

Your BDS recap of the CMA

Posted: November 5, 2015 by jmklee in Uncategorized

If you are like me and missed the CMA last night let me sum it up for you.

Everyone loves Justin Timberlake and he played guitar with a mountain man from Lexington, Kentucky who stole the show.

.

Carrie Underwood is oh so smoking hot and lucky for us, she loves to show it off.

.

Mellencamp showed up.

.

Yep, that will do it.  Now I’m sure there were other performances, plenty of hot girls in boots, and an overflow of douchebags with guitars (um, looking at you Luke Bryan) but I’m sure I hit the high notes.
