CFP: The Country’s Best Team Is…

So the College Football Playoff System really worked this season. The four best teams in the country (give or take an Ohio St), are going to get a chance to prove it on the field, where they should. For the first time in a long time, there will be no argument about who should have been given a chance, and who the real national champion is, almost. Not to burst

CFP: National Championship Sooner Than You Think

There were plenty of people out there who were hoping the College Playoff system would fall flat this season. A few weeks ago, it looked like that could very well be the case. After all, Oklahoma St, Baylor, TCU, Iowa & Ohio St were all undefeated and yet only Ohio State was in the CFP Top 4. The other spots were taken by an undefeated Clemson squad and Notre Dame

CFP: Can The No.4 Iowa Hawkeyes Do The Impossible?

INDIANAPOLIS – No one knows about them. They have no marquee players or big-name head coaches or players. They are probably the quietest undefeated team in college football. That is perfectly okay with the 12-0 Iowa Hawkeyes. How can a team that is ranked fourth in the country and has beaten two ranked teams in No.19 Wisconsin and No.20—both on the road by the way!—manage to be largely ignored by

CFP: Could No.3 Oklahoma Be The Odd Man Out?

NORMAN – Following their 58-23 demolition of longtime and bitter rival Oklahoma State, the third-ranked 11-1 Oklahoma Sooners punched their ticket to the College Football Playoff, or did they? While Boomer Sooner administered a Bedlam Beatdown of epic proportions on the ‘Pokes, based on their own conference’s lack of a title game, one of college football’s storied programs may find themselves on the outside looking in.

Snowman’s Take: No Love for Iowa or Florida

You may not agree with what I am about to say.  Which is why I'm gonna say it the way I usually do - with CONVICTION and HONESTY. As far as the College football playoff goes, Iowa and Florida get ABSOLUTELY NO LOVE from ol' Snowman!  NONE! Yeah I said it.  Shall I say it again - okay...NONE! Why you ask?  Because these are two teams that got no attention

The Mad Scientist: My CFP Doomsday Scenarios For Week 2

  Last week, I began doing a column called "Doomsday Scenarios" for the Power 5 Conferences, and it received quite a reaction and caused some controversy. So, why not continue this as a weekly column until we reach the conclusion of the CFP Standing season. This past week, the SEC actually avoided being "doomed" to say the least. The SEC 's worst-case scenario was Mississippi, being a 2-loss team, winning its

Snowman’s Take: Why The Tarheels Are My New Dark Horse

Okay.  I've done a take on teams who I thought would be good and would be an upset pick in the NCAA Football season. But Utah bit the dust, Baylor lost its starting QB, TCU hit the skids, and just when it seemed like a dark horse that ol' Snowman picks bites the dust, along comes someone even I didn't consider. Don't even get me started on Memphis. Now, Baylor

CFP: College Football’s Biggest Remaining Games

Earlier this week I railed on the powers that be in college football for the first playoff rankings. I won’t go into it again, mainly because I need to keep my blood pressure down. If there is any bright side to this season, is this will eventually play itself out on the field, and the contenders will be separated from the pretenders on the one place they should be, the

Leonard Fournette: Why LSU vs. Alabama Just Got Bigger

TUSCALOOSA – In the heart of the Deep South, there are must-see games, and then there is LSU vs. Alabama. Will Leonard Fournette cement his Heisman candidacy in Tuscaloosa vs. the Crimson Tide? While bitter rivalry games such Alabama-Auburn, Florida-Georgia and Ole Miss-Mississippi State are naturally more prevalent towards the end of the season, there is perhaps no bigger game circled on the calendar during the season than when the

CFP: These Rankings Are Just Rank

So if you’re a fan of NCAA Football, Tuesday was the day you had been waiting for since the opening kick-off. It was the day the College Football Playoff rankings came out. On December 6th, these very same rankings will decide which four teams will be eligible to play for the National Championship. So while these rankings are very fluid, it is also very telling if you are one of
