CHEAT SHEET 2018 Players Pool



a couple thoughts…

ncaaI have had many of you reach out and ask about my feelings on the news this morning about Kentucky being named in the Yahoo report.  Well, my response is a simple one.  What did the school do when they found out?  That is the key to all of this.  Is the school, administrators, compliance and coaches part of the answer or part of the problem?

If we find out that Cal and Kentucky is part of the problem then they have to go.  It is that simple. 

The complicated part of this is the agent part.  If an agent pays a kid in hopes the kid signs with them later and the school is unaware, did the school cheat?  The answer to that question is no.  Under the current rules though the kid is ineligible and schools will have to vacate wins.

Look, this is only one agency and to think it is the only rouge agency out there is not only naïve but moronic.  The question is how do you fix it.

I might be crazy but I think it is time to scrap the idea of amateurism.  Why can’t a kid have an agent?  Why can’t a kid do commercials or have endorsements?  If we allow this and bring it out into the open then it will be much easier to monitor and guide these kids and their families.

There will be more information to come and conversations to have so buckle up.

My reaction to the UofL news…

images-6Up to this point LaVar Ball and his boys three have brought nothing to the table besides cheap shoes and hot air.  And just when I think they couldn’t possibly be any worse, they go and give us something like this… and totally redeem themselves!


No really, check this shit out.

This is the song the play-by-play guy sang when news broke that Big Ballers were coming to town.


That’s good stuff, right?  Here is the full song where that came from.


Now aren’t you glad LaVar entered our lives last year?  I mean we would never know what fine asses Lithuanian women had.  Who knew?!?

Wait, there is more.


Alright, I have watched this more than anyone should and I still can’t figure out if she is planning on kidnapping the boys and feed them those potatoes or what the hell is going on.  Let me know if you figure it out.

Anyway, I want to thank the Ball’s for taking their talents to the Baltic and giving me the tune I will not get out of my head for weeks.

Welcome to Lith-u-a-nia

Welcome to Lith-u-a-nia


As everyone jumps onto he Auburn bandwagon let me remind you that no 2-loss team has ever made the 4-team playoff.  With that said let’s take a look at who gets in and what the pecking order will be.

  1. Clemson vs. Miami – winner of the ACC gets a spot and the loser is out.
  2. Wisconsin – win the BIG10 and they are in, lose and they are out.
  3. Georgia – win the SEC and they are in, lose and they are out.
  4. Alabama – Nick Saban gets to take a page out of Bobby Knight’s book and just sit back and enjoy this weekend.  As of today I give them the nod over Oklahoma but it is close.
  5. Oklahoma – a convincing win over TCU again might just put them over Bama.
  6. Auburn, Ohio St. and UCF – If Auburn and Ohio St. win Saturday then these three teams will come into play.  UCF will have to beat a very hot Memphis team to keep their hopes afloat.  UCF will have only 1 less Top 50 win and 2 fewer losses than the other two.  The committee has always poo-pooed 2 loss teams and the buzz created by adding UCF (who will travel well) will be very tempting.
  7. Penn St., Washington, TCU and USC – These teams have absolutely no shot at all.

Once again, no need to watch the ESPN dog and pony show tonight.

1aThe College Football Bowl Championship rankings will be released again this evening.  I think the committee has done a better job this year giving a true ranking but I still have a problem with their rankings.  If they stay true to their rankings the standings will look something like this.

  1. Alabama
  2. Clemson
  3. Miami
  4. Oklahoma
  5. Wisconsin
  6. Auburn
  7. UGA
  8. Notre Dame
  9. Ohio State
  10. Penn State

The biggest problem I have is with Oklahoma.  Yes, they went out of conference and played a legit opponent with Ohio St. and beat them but everyone is pretending the BIG12 is a real conference.  The other problem I have is all the love Auburn is getting right now.  Now if they go out and beat Bama and UGA these next two weeks then yes, we can have that discussion but everyone seems to be already marking those down as wins.  You look at their schedule and quality wins compared to Notre Dame’s resume and it isn’t even close.  This is what the rankings SHOULD look like tonight.

  1. Alabama
  2. Miami
  3. Clemson
  4. Wisconsin
  5. UGA
  6. Notre Dame
  7. Oklahoma
  8. Auburn
  9. Ohio St.
  10. Washington State

Don’t agree?  Take a look at the resumes.


This week has soooooooo many great games that will sort so much of this out for us this weekend.  Couple that with all the rivalry games around the country, Thanksgiving and fall weather and we are looking at the best college football weeks of the year!

As the college football season winds down the playoff picture could be a complete mess and I LOVE IT!!!

This is reason #352 why Saturdays > Sundays.  The playoff standings will be released Tuesday evening and will give some clarity. (kinda) When you take away the standings and just look at the numbers you see a very different scenario.


If Miami, Wisconsin and Bama win out they are in but that is the only thing you can take to the bank.

So many questions yet to be answered and the arguments for who belong are far from over.

This week that will help clear things up.  Add in the great rivalry games like IU/PU playing for a bowl bid and UK/UofL playing for an 8 win season and I am in football heaven.
