So are we locked in with Bama, Georgia, Cinci - then Michigan if they win and ND if they lose?

Gives us:
Bama v Cinci or ND
Georgia v Michigan

Anything else could happen?

I would prefer Bama/UGa in the semis to avoid the rematch in the finals. But I don’t see it happening

I thought it was funny how quick RG3 and the other announcer changed their tune from "dude, that was so cool!" to "hmm, maybe that is an illegal play"

Pitt and Baylor were two of the teams I wanted to see win, but Bama winning threw off everything. Normally not a ND fan but I was kinda rooting for them cause of what Kelly did

Sounds like Venables to OU is probably happening after all. Also sounds like UVa might be going after Tony Elliott (Clemson’s OC).

If the QB even starts a slide. Which Kenny did. He is down. That's why players don't come flying at QBs

Feels like a huge judgment call for refs to make but I agree that in theory you should be considered down when the slide “starts”. But the last thing we need in CFB is another play to be reviewed for 8 minutes each game.

It’s only ever happened once as far as anybody knows right? Until it really becomes a problem I don’t know that it needs addressing

^I can see that perspective. I do think this may become more commonplace now with as much as it was highlighted, but until it is no rule change should be made.

yea, he knew what he was doing. Also, he could have easily said he was just trying to juke or tripped. hell of a play tho. Wake stopped for a reason.

I feel like as soon as a QB gets blown up trying it. it will be less likely.

There will be more targeting calls and more QB injuries because of this, and I for one can't wait for the analysts and commentators complaining about it when this inevitably comes.

Diaz out. Cristobal to Miami. And Clemson’s AD to Miami.

What a wild cycle this has been. In some cycles VT might be the biggest job open. It’s like the 10th biggest job this cycle lol

Sure but not unrealistic either. I’m not arguing that it’s great job. Mostly just commenting how wild it is that LSU, UF, ND, USC, Oregon, Miami, OU (maybe somebody else big I’m forgetting) all opened this year.

I honestly have no idea how to rank a Big 12 job now with OU and UT leaving. But for the most part I think ranking jobs is kinda impossible. You can put them into tiers. And from there it’s all about preference for a potential coach (location, style, current dynamics of conference/division, etc).

I mean TCU has won 2 national championships (plus 2010 where they were undefeated and won the Rose Bowl.) They are in Fort Worth which is no doubt easier to recruit to than a tiny mountain town in the middle of nowhere.

Just a few years ago Washington hired the coach everyone wanted in Chris Petersen. Nice stadium in a large city. They made the CFP just five years ago. Way better gig than VT or TCU.

Quote :
"Here is the full bulletin from the Secretary Rules Editor...

Ball Declared Dead – Rule 4-1-3

Play #1: 3/10 @ B-40. QB A12 takes the snap and rolls out to the right. Finding no receiver open, A12 turns up field and runs. After making the line to gain, A12 breaks stride as if he is going to slide feet first at the B-27, stays upright and runs for a touchdown.

RULING: The live ball becomes dead at the point where A12 simulates or fakes as if he will begin a feet-first slide. An official shall sound their whistle and declare the ball dead. Team A will have 1/10 @ B-27.

Any time a ball carrier begins, simulates, or fakes a feet-first slide, the ball should be declared dead by the on field officials at that point. The intent of the rule is player safety, and the objective is to give a ball carrier an option to end the play by sliding feet first and to avoid contact. To allow the ball carrier to fake a slide would compromise the defense that is being instructed to let up when the ball carrier slides feet first. A fake slide will not be considered reviewable under Rule 12-3-3 – Dead Ball and Loose Ball"



New rule on fake slides

Bringing in a 5* but don’t know how much you can expect from a true freshmen.

Definitely not saying their run has ended. But I don’t think they’re gonna automatically gonna be top 5 again next year. Dabo’s reluctance to use the transfer portal might be (in part) catching up to him

I wonder if ESPN is going to pay the teams for these cancelled bowls. I say that since ESPN owns most of them. Like the ACC has already had 2 bowls cancelled. If they don't pay out, every school in the conference loses money.

I thought I read that in the Gator Bowl, the payout was contingent on the game actually being played. Not sure if that’s standard for all the bowls or if exceptions will be made. But yeah…that’s a good chunk of money
