Patterico's Pontifications


Saturday College Football Open Thread

* I’m starting to think that I’ll never again see Michigan beat Ohio State in my lifetime.

* Georgia looked good again beating Georgia Tech, except for the discipline issues. The SEC title game ought to be a doozy.

* How cool is that that Minnesota and Wisconsin, the most-played rivalry in major college football, have played 128 times and the series is perfectly knotted up at 60-60 with eight ties?

* I want to see climate change “activists” try that sit-in stuff at the Alabama-Auburn game. Or LSU-Texas A&M for that matter.

* For fun, let’s envision this scenario: Ohio State, Clemson, and LSU win-out and reach the college football playoffs. Alabama loses to Auburn. Oklahoma loses to Oklahoma State. Next weekend, Georgia loses to LSU in the SEC title game. Minnesota loses to Ohio State in the Big Ten title game. Baylor loses to Oklahoma in the Big 12 title game. Utah loses to Oregon in the Pac 12 title game. Who then becomes the fourth team in the playoffs? A two-loss conference champ like Oregon or Oklahoma? A two-loss runner-up like Georgia or Minnesota? Or a two-loss wild-card like Alabama? How about a one-loss minor conference champion like Boise State or Memphis? Wouldn’t it be fun to see the NCAA in the position of having to make that choice?

Enjoy watching, if that’s how you plan to spend your afternoon.
