Playoff Predictions

1.     Ohio State

2.     TCU

3.     Alabama

4.     Stanford

Only a win (or loss) away

·       Baylor

·       Utah

·       Michigan State

  • Memphis-Tulsa was the highest scoring so far this year with 108 points, edging out TCU-Texas Tech (107).   TCU-Baylor are going to do their best to top this mark.
  • Baylor’s offense is incredible, they jump on their opponents early and often. They are averaging a nation-leading 19 points per game in the first quarter. Houston failed to score on their opening possession this past Saturday and now Baylor is the only team in the nation that has scored a TD on all of their opening possessions. Saturday the Bears punted twice in the first quarter doubling their total punts in the first quarter this season. They start fast. Baylor has also forced at least 2 turnovers in every game this season…WR Corey Coleman has 17 TD.
  • Baylor’s 152 points in the first quarter are more than what 31 teams have scored all season. They’re good.
  • Injuries always play a big role in any football season and Baylor may have suffered the biggest injury of them all after losing QB Seth Russell for the season with a neck fracture.
  • The AAC has 3 unbeaten teams – Houston, Memphis, and Temple. Temple hosts Notre Dame and College Game Day, Houston hosts Vanderbilt and Memphis host Tulane this weekend. Memphis gets to play in back-to-back weeks, Houston and Temple do not play each other unless they meet for the AAC title. These three teams are good, and it should be fun in the AAC down the stretch. Only one can go undefeated.
  • Texas and Charlie Strong appear to be rolling after their championship-like celebration after beating Oklahoma.
  • Ohio State names JT Barrett their starting QB and rolls Rutgers. Before you get too excited, remember that they were playing Rutgers, but Ohio State has not dominated an opponent all season. I still think that as they season shortens they will play looser, which is problematic for their opponents.
  • Miami pulled the trigger on Al Golden after the program’s worst loss in school history. It was clear that they were going to move on from Golden after the season, Clemson left no doubt that he needed to go. The question is where does Miami turn? Fuentes at Memphis? Do they look at Temple again? They have a great young QB in Brad Kaaya and are in a recruiting hot bed. The problem is that their facilities are of the quality of a small Texas high school.
  • There are already several coaching jobs open; Maryland, USC, and Illinois. Under Armor is doing what they can to make Maryland an attractive job. Under Armor wants to make Maryland the Oregon of the East. I think this could be an attractive job and a successful one with the right hire, but you can say that about just about any job.

Things to look forward to:

North Carolina at 23 Pitt – The winner is with Duke in the driver’s seat for the Coastal Division title.

22 Ole Miss at Auburn – It’s the SEC, they are all interesting on some level.

Georgia vs 15 Florida – Worlds Largest Outdoor Cocktail party, both teams have lost stars one of them wants to represent the SEC East in Atlanta

10 Oklahoma State at Texas Tech – The Cowboys are flying under the radar, but for how long?

8 Notre Dame at 21 Temple – Notre Dame’s playoff chances may hinge on a win here and Temple’s success after this game; in what will be Temple’s first time playing in a game featuring two ranked teams.

9 Stanford at Washington State – Can the Cougs play spoiler? Or can Stanford keep marching toward the Pac-12 title and a playoff berth?
