I don’t need to elaborate too much cause again it’s the first week. But my eyes told me all I need to see. Neither tonight’s Miami/LSU game nor Monday’s FSU/VaTech matchup will do much to change my mind so here we go.
By the way before we get into this week’s Fab Four I will be adding a Mini Notepad to this weekly column which will highlight much of my weekly hot takes coming out of the college football weekend.
Now, on to the rankings.
If Lamar Jackson was still at Louisville for his senior year then maybe the Alabama/Louisville game becomes a wee bit competitive.
Or maybe not.
By the way the media is already pissing off Nick Saban with questions about the quarterback controversy between Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa. That did not take long.
Last thing. The most impressive stat of this game. Louisville ran the ball 26 times. They mustered up only 16 yards.
They played a cupcake as well. However I’m already comfortable saying that through one week that both the Clemson Tigers and Alabama are not only the two best teams in college football. There is no one in the conversation with them. Obviously as the season progresses we could see something different.
Somehow I doubt it.
A 45-0 drubbing of Austin Peay was expected. I expect the Bulldogs to run through the next month and a half with relative ease. Although next week’s game at South Carolina does present some intrigue.
Their schedule is brutal moving forward. That alone is why I have zero problem rewarding them with putting them into the Earnestly Speaking Fab Four. There were moments on Saturday where their offense looked clueless. However their defense did just enough to pull out a huge win against a Washington team that logically needed to run the table to have a serious shot to making the four team playoff.
Definitely the most impressive win of the weekend, regardless how ugly it was. Just win baby.
•Jim Harbaugh is 9-9 in his last 18 games. That alone will build speculation on his future at Michigan. Although I do not think he is actually on the hot seat. It’s a media driven narrative. I am here for it.
•Because of how weak the Pac-12 is, the Washington Huskies may have lost their best chance to make the four team playoff.
•Texas is the most overhyped brand in college football.
•Oklahoma’s QB Kyler Murray reminds me so much of Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks
•FAU will still win 9-10 games this season despite being shalacked at Oklahoma. All yesterday proved is that they cannot play with the big boys just yet.
