I didn't see you in here picking the Bison over Iowa during the week.

Congrats, that is a solid Div II school you got there.
NDSU is FCS, not Division II which is a conference "lower".

Lville hasn't played a good defense yet this year and that QB has never faced a good defense in any of his starts.

I just heard commentators say that Mike Riley "kicked his Duck problems" to the curb yesterday.

Um..... He's coaching a completely different team halfway across the country and the Ducks don't have a superstar NFL caliber QB at the helm.

Duh! Do they really pay these "analysts" to talk?

Can't argue with this...


Although I'd say the Top 4 teams right now.


Alabama. I'm not sold on the QB position w/ this team. They have enough to win the SEC though.
OSU. Could be the fastest team in America this year, defense hits runs and tackles well, and they have a veteran QB.
Clemson. Will put it together.
Louisville. I think they stumble along the way.




5. Houston Will beat Louisville.
6. Michigan St. Will beat Michigan.
7. Stanford Will beat Washington but will be upset along the way.
8. Washington
9. Michigan
10. Florida St. If they win out it won't surprise me.

Oh yeah, Bama has had some terrible years to be sure, and some not too long ago.

But the last decade or so may be the most dominant run in history. I think if they win another title (and who would bet against at least one more under Saban) they're, without question, on the greatest run ever. And it's even more impressive in that they're doing it in an era of parity, when there are longer seasons, more teams, and more opportunities to lose.

They're in serious contention for the NC, every single year, and usually to the very end (and if they lose, it's often extremely close or crazy stuff like the Kick 6 game in 2013).

Even the other great teams, the Ohio States and Florida States, are up and down a bit. Florida State was unranked a few years ago, Ohio State finished 6-7 just a few years ago. Bama, while flawed, and beatable, is almost always at or near the top.
