I haven't totaled up my weekly totals in a while, but think I'm somewhere around 185-91. I've got a couple days off at Christmas I'll look into that.

Troy vs. North Texas. Troy over the Mean Green.
Western Kentucky vs. Georgia State. Hilltoppers get this bowl.
Boise State vs. Oregon. Sounds like the players loved Cristobal, and loved that he was hired on a permanent basis, so I'll look for them to play inspired, and get this win.
Marshall vs. Colorado State. The Herd.
Mid Tenn State vs. Arkansas State. Interesting game, that I'll take the Raiders in.
Akron vs. (25) Florida Atlantic. Lane Kiffin caps off his first (and only??) season in Boca Raton with a bowl bid, conference championship, and 12 win season.
Louisiana Tech vs. SMU. I'll take SMU here.

Yeah, I figured as much.. That sentence was probably not worded as clearly as it could have been.

Last year, Ohio State's wins were far superior to those of Penn State.

This year, Alabama's wins are far inferior to those of Ohio State.
I think he is saying the argument was "we are the better team, it doesnt matter that we didnt play in or win the conference title".

It would 100% contradict that argument.

i have been pretty good on the few predictions i have made this season as has been shown by my quoting myself .. with that said i will make my predictions for the playoff and championship games now .. i do not have my usual BAMA overconfidence that comes with being a fan since we looked so vulnerable in the loss to Cowburn ,,, i feel clemson will have their way with us .. and i feel that OK will easily defeat Georgia as they will prove to be a one hit wonder ..but surprisingly i feel OK will be able to outscore Clemson in a battle reminiscent of the last two battles tween BAma and Clemson ... it`s still nice that all 4 teams are from below the mason dixon line ...

Alabama didn't steamroll Texas AM, Miss State or Auburn but 'everyone knows' Alabama will steamroll Clemson?

Utah vs. West Virginia. Utah has not been good the 2nd half of the season.
Duke vs. Northern Illinois. I'll take NIU in this almost meaningless bowl game.
Kansas State vs. UCLA. K-State for Bill Snyder.
Southern Miss vs. Florida State. Florida State is not very good
Iowa vs. Boston College. I'll take the Eagles to end their season with a good win.
Arizona vs. Purdue. Purdue ends the season with a bowl win.
Texas vs. Missouri. Texas wins this matchup of former Big 12 rivals.
Virginia vs. Navy. Navy with the option offense.
Virginia Tech vs. (13) Oklahoma State. Pokes.
(17) Stanford vs. (19) TCU. Pretty good game, and I'll take the Cardinal.
(22) Washington State vs. (24) Michigan State. Sparty in another good matchup.
Wake Forest vs. Texas A&M. I'll take the Aggies.
NC State vs. Arizona State. Wolfpack over the no defense Devils
Kentucky vs. (23) Northwestern. Northwestern has had a very good season.
New Mexico State vs. Utah State. Utah state I guess

Neither Alabama nor Clemson are as good as they were last year, but Alabama has fallen farther from its 2016 heights than Clemson has. Their defense is banged up and their offense is one-dimensional. I favor Clemson in this matchup for those reasons.

Oklahoma and Georgia should be more interesting. I really only see two possibilities: (a) Oklahoma getting up big early and blowing them out or (b) Georgia grinding them down in a relatively low scoring affair.
