FINAL NACIONAL - MI PREVIA 🏆

Alabama y Ohio State se jugarán la noche del lunes al martes (si la pandemia lo permite) el título nacional en el Hard Rock Stadium de Miami. El #NationalChampionship Game cierra una temporada NCAA caótica. 🐘⚔️🅾️

Hablar de Alabama es hablar del programa rey del CFB. Su 1ª temporada fue en 1892 y desde entonces ha sumado 928 victorias y 374 de sus jugadores han sido drafteados. Es el equipo FBS con más títulos nacionales en su haber (17) y ha jugado 6 de los 7 #CFBPlayoff. 🐘 Image
Comenzó la temporada con alguna duda en ataque y defensa, pero las ha resuelto a base de dominio. 12-0. Recuperó SU trono de la SEC ante una Florida que supo hacerles puntos (🤔) y luego dominaron a Notre Dame en semis jugando al ralentí. Tuvo 3 jugadores en el TOP-5 del Heisman.

Day is still hot from last yrs Referees stealing our Natty shot.

Rightfully so and if the coach doesn't believe we can beat their asses, then players will never.

Dabo doing what he does best. Running his mouth.

BYU improves to 3-0, with a total margin of victory of 148-24. All 3 G5 opponents have had 9+ wins in a majority of the last 5 seasons.
Wondering how BYU would do against a top 10 team? It's not perfect, but this might give a bit of an idea.
Even absent the unusual year, this is the best possible year in the 3-year #CFBPlayoff cycle for BYU to catch fire. Given the rotation of the Semifinals there are 5 potential spots for BYU to get an NY6 bid. In 2022 and 2025 there's just 1.

The Mountain West will not include its normal divisional format this year. Having said that, 29 of the 30 games normally played between division rivals will be played this year. The lone exception is Boise State vs. New Mexico.
The absence of Boise State vs. New Mexico means that:
• 8-0 New Mexico
• 7-0 Boise State
• 7-0 San Diego State

Is technically possible.
People have spent 7 years worrying about 3 SEC teams in the #CFBPlayoff and no one saw 3 MWC teams in the Playoff coming.

Coming into this game, I thought our toughest game was behind us. I really thought that Bama was the best team LSU would face this year.

I was totally wrong about that.

Clemson punched us in the mouth, and they are the only team to do that this year. Clemson was incredible.

Clemson going for their 29th consecutive win, and Ohio State trying to be relevant again. Lots on line here.

Version 3 of the #CFBPlayoff rankings were released last night. What you expected? If youve followed along since early Oct you know the process. You werent surprised. For the rest of you, lets take a look & compare to what was projected using the same process used for 5 yrs.
First off, why does the committee use this process? Think about it. 14 busy guys make up this committee. They have roughly 60 hrs from when the last game ends on Sat to when they need to have this Top 25 created on Tues. If they evaluate only 30 teams to get that 25, how much
time is adequate to evaulate? 1 hr? Thats 30 hrs of evaluation. Half the time is gone & no one has slept. The process of getting a consensus out of 14 people hasnt even started. Thats why this process is kept so simple, & its why they have a defined predictable process.

As good a time as any to make my case for getting rid of the #CFBPlayoff:
The BCS and now the BCS playoff came from the idea of being able to crown a true national champion of college football.
That's dumb, because it's impossible. With 130 or so BCS teams, and 12 games + conference champs + playoffs, you just don't have enough data to make an unassailable determination.
But that's fine! For decades, teams played college football for 10 or 11 games, and at the end of a successful season, you got to go to a bowl, which was a cool thing to do over the holiday between semesters.

Can somebody explain how three-loss Florida, who got shelled by Missouri earlier this month, and has two FCS wins in it's resume, is at #10 in the #CFBPlayoff rankings? It'd be baffling if it wasn't par-for-the-course for this horrendous system and selection committee
Then there's three-loss Penn State, who hasn't defeated a ranked team, got destroyed 42-7 by two-loss Michigan, is ranked at #12? Again, this is beyond comprehension. This #CFBPlayoff system is an absolute farce, created to only benefit "name" programs
I'm now firmly in the corner with people who say this #CFBPlayoff is not only the worst thing in American sports, but it's also much worse that it was before we even had the BCS or "title game". I'd rather have dozens of educated AP voters decide a "champion" than this nonsense
