Well, I'm a life-long Cleveland Browns fan, so constitutionally inclined to expect the worst from any team I root for. But while Georgia's defense is impressive, the offense isn't. (I mean, this is a team that lost to South Carolina, for heaven's sake; an opponent who, let us remember, later lost to Appalachian State.)

Burrow, in the mean time, just set the SEC record for single-season passing yards, with 4,366. He's averaging 11 yards per toss, with 41 touchdowns. And his completion percentage is 78.9%. Seventy-eight point nine percent. He's on track to set the NCAA record for completion percentage.

Fromm, on the other hand, has thrown for 2,385 yards this season, and is 194-for-314, which is a respectable but not brilliant 62%. He's averaging 7.6 yards per catch, with 21 touchdowns.

I know one player does not win a game, but the Dawgs have never passed the smell test for me this season (they fumbled a punt and lost an onside kick against Tech last weekend). Whereas LSU looks solid.

Don't misunderstand me, I'd love to be proven wrong and see the Silver Britches win the conference next week in Atlanta. But I'd be really surprised if they did.

TL;DR version - Jake Fromm is a good quarterback. Joe Burrow is a great quarterback.

Oh yeah, those days are coming back! If you weren't a fan when we were 4-8 last year, don't jump on the bandwagon now that we're 5-7.

For the playoffs: they need to have LSU be the number 1 seed, so they can play Utah or Baylor in the first round. Let Ohio State and Clemson beat each other up, then voila... another SEC title!

And wouldn't you know, here come the Clay Helton rumors.

Petersen has said in the past that he's not necessarily comfortable with the idea of coaching for big programs, but if he wants a shot at the national championship, USC is waiting.

I also think that LSU will win; however, Burrow has yet to face a tight game outside of Alabama, and they jumped out to a huge lead and they took advantage of a Bama pass defense that has been exposed this season (as it has been exposed in the past). Auburn in many ways gave LSU a much tougher contest and that's because they were able to use their pass rush, and they made running a challenge as well. I think UGA is more like Auburn and less like Bama, though you're right in saying they probably wish they had Bama's offense.

FSU has made no official announcement but the field had the paint refreshed today. Recruiting weekend is coming up, but rumors are that it's the backdrop to announce the coaching hire within the next day or two.

Rumors are it's Norvell from Memphis although Bob Stoops keeps coming up no matter how many times he says "ain't me". Personally I lean Norvell or why wait until after the weekend?

So coaching rumors for two schools on ESPN now:

Ole Miss supposedly getting Kiffin.

And, as mentioned above (but now being reported), FSU working on Norvell.

If Kiffin couldn't win at USC, he's not going to competing for SEC titles in Oxford. I suspect the Rebs will have a few good seasons, might occasionally upset Alabama or LSU, but will probably follow it up with losses to Miss St and Arkansas.

Possibly ducking PAC12's best chance at making the playoff since they now have a 2 loss champion.

As I've said a couple of times in this thread, nobody from the Pac-12 was playoff material this year, so I'm glad nobody will be going. I'll be very happy rooting for Oregon to beat Penn State in the Rose Bowl --- that should be a good game, and not an embarrassing blowout.

Nope. They probably didn't even with a win. A one loss conference champion would have been harder to ignore. They might have inspired much wailing and gnashing of fan teeth if they were left out. This just makes things simpler for the commitee.

Damn! Start of the second in the Big Ten game, and Wisconsin is playing #1 OSU tough! Up 14-0.

I say if you don't win the conference, you have no business playing for the title. (Which is making this Big Ten game interesting)

The Oregon coach is getting some heat for not doing just that. If he had scheduled a cupcake instead of Auburn for his season opener, Oregon would be a one-loss conference champion, and with Georgia and OSU having bad days today, who knows?

I mean, the Buckeyes are probably going to come out from halftime and score 17 unanswered TDs in the second half, but, when was the last time they were behind after 2 quarters?

Having said that I don’t understand all the people saying that Utah were never going to the playoff anyway. If the committee wasn’t going to pick them, why did it have them ranked that highly in the first place? Would have raised a huge stink if they’d won decisively and not gotten in.

Sorry, but what, perzactly, does the coach have to do with scheduling opponents? These college schedules are set up in yore-days, before these coaches are even a glint in daddy's pantaloons. To blame the coach for playing the wrong opponent is passing ridiculous.

Kind of amazing how nobody's talking about Clemson. All they do is destroy teams. Haven't lost a game in 2 years. Trevor Lawrence is arguably one of the elite arms in the country. Speed and power at nearly every position. Great coaching staff. They're easily the team I worry about most.

All I know is that after beating the Utes, when he was asked if he thought the Auburn game was a mistake in retrospect, Cristobal said that Oregon would continue to schedule top non-conference opponents, because they want to play the best and find out how good they are. How much say he actually has is up to his contract and the AD, I guess, but he's not wrong --- they are playing Ohio State in 2020 and 2021, and Georgia in 2022.

Well, for one thing, they aren't playing many ranked opponents. In fact, the only ranked team they've played this year was #23, and that was last night.

They may be the best team ever, but if they don't follow Oregon's lead and schedule some tough non-conference games, then I lose respect for them. It's easy to run up the score on cupcakes, and it's an advantage during the playoffs to have played weaker teams that don't hit as hard, so you have less (fewer) injuries.

I think he's smart to do that. In general terms I'd back a team that lost a close game to a team like Auburn's before I'd back one that went unbeaten while playing nothing but a bunch of cupcakes.

I was surprised that Georgia played that badly. Something else that I noted was that Georgia receivers were able to get open early. They just didn't make plays, but they were open. LSU's coverage did make adjustments, and I was impressed with Aranda's play calling as the game evolved. But the difference between Clemson and Georgia is that Clemson's receivers might make those catches that Georgia's receivers whiffed on, which would potentially change the complexion of the game.

All of that cautiousness and hedging aside, I like LSU's chances against anyone if their defense is prepared. The opponents will have more offensive firepower than Georgia, but LSU has proven they can win shootouts, too.

So a decidedly mediocre team (Washington's) from a decidedly mediocre conference (the Pac-12) wiped the floor with the Mountain West Conference's champion last night, eh? What do all of you "Group of 5" fans have to say about that?

I expect LSU's team to REAM Oklahoma's (even more so, now, with so many Sooners declared OUT for that contest) but Ohio State vs. Clemson should be interesting. The football team from THE Ohio State University has faced, by FAR, the tougher competition this year, but on the other hand Clemson's coach and team have been through these battles before while the same can't really be said of Ohio State's team. I expect that one to be a real knock-down, drag-out affair.

I don't think Boise St was very motivated in that game , they were really hoping to get a Cotton bowl bid but their loss to BYU meant Memphis was ranked higher and got the Cotton bid.

For most games BSU have done very well vs. power 5 teams and won quite a few of those games including 2 Fiesta bowl wins. Quite a few power 5 teams have no major bowl wins like the Fiesta.

A ha! That's been my exact argument about their opponents all these years when people want to bring up all of their "impressive" non-conference or bowl wins. So now when BSU gets REAMED by a so-so team from another conference "level of motivation" is now "a thing" whereas when THEY win those games it's merely an "excuse" that's used by the teams they beat?

I've been watching college football for nearly 60 years, and the single most entertaining play I've seen was of course the Cal-Stanford band-on-the-field play.

But the most entertaining game I've seen was the 2007 Fiesta Bowl, when BSU beat favored Oklahoma.

I had a feeling all season that Pac-12 football simply wasn't very good. USC's clunker against Iowa tonight certainly doesn't do anything to dispel that notion.

The Best ACC officials missed that Passed Interference penalty??? Holy Toledo!

Barring that, Joe Burreaux showing why he was the Heisman Winner. At 6'4" he will be highly coveted in the draft,

Hope the Clemson-tOSU game is closer.

Go Clemson.
