I hear ya Tom. But, I like Clemson a whisker better than UGA.TomAiello wrote: ↑Sun Nov 25, 2018 2:06 pmI still think the real national championship is going to be played in the Georgia Dome, in early December.
Maybe Clemson will surprise us all and beat the Tide in January, though.
Georgia is graduating almost no one this year, so next year is looking really good for the Dawgs.
Ya know Dan, I will say this. In 1992 - I believe it was anyways, The Miami Hurricanes were loaded. I think they usually got 60 out 61 1st place votes ( I think there were 61 votes ) but, 1 guy always voted his #1 vote for Alabama. And he was ridiculed. Miami was explosive and well, just the Canes. At any rate, the guy said it was the best defense he had ever seen. Still, people laughed at him. Well, we all know what happened. Alabama won the National Championship over Miami that year. 34-13.
Back in those days there was so much prejudice in the North about Southern teams it was hard for teams like AL to get any recognition. AL even won the national championship and it angered some of the powerful schools up there so much that they gave it to another team one year. Then they started playing teams in the SEC...Alabama was the first Southern team allowed to play Northern teams and were only invited to play in 1925 for the first time. Alabama won that year, and the next and were the National Champions.MacLaren wrote: ↑Sun Nov 25, 2018 7:42 pmYa know Dan, I will say this.

So, yes, Notre Dame may just suprise us all.
Yeah that's where I'm kind of coming from too. Because college football and basketball have literally become the "Minor Leagues" for the professional ranks. And there is so much under the table politics involved>> if you don't believe me just look at the way they black-balled "Tim Tebow" He has a lot more talent than most of the second string QBs in the league. And he wasn't a troublemaker like a few them that got the velvet hammer.

A few things.....
Ohio State crushed Michigan. - But, I am still not convinced that they are top 4 quality. Getting absolutely mauled by Perdue and just barely escaping Maryland leaves heavy doubt in my mind.
Notre Dame remains undefeated. - But, who in the hell have they beaten? I mean really? They beat USC. Big deal lol. They should not be in the top 4 imo. Thier schedule is a joke.
Texas A&M 74 - LSU 72 in 7 Over Times lol.....enough said.
Clemson finished out the season undefeated. The solid #2 team in the Nation.
Oklahoma defeated WVU in Morgantown 59-56. The Sooners should be the #4 team in the Country imo.
Georgia takes care of business. I have the Bulldogs as #3 in the Country. Schedule is brutal, and even with a potential loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship, they are still miles ahead of Notre Dame imo.
So, my top 4...
1. Alabama Crimson Tide
2. Clemson Tigers
3. Georgia Bulldogs
4. Oklahoma Sooners
On the outside looking in.....
I agree Alabama and Clemson clear #1 and #2. While Ga may be a more physical team overall, Murray at QB could make the difference if these two were to play.
I hear ya, it's just OU's defense is so utterly suspect. It has been all year long.Tdog wrote: ↑Sat Dec 29, 2018 10:44 pmMay be the 2 best QB's in the country playing tonight. Tua throws an incredibly beautiful pass, nearly perfect every time. Murray plays with such heart and overall skill ,including his scrambling ability. A team player and leader. Fun to watch these two, though tired of the Bama dominance.
