Folks, I think we need to face up to it. College football has a problem: its pundits are bored out of their collective freakin’ minds.
It is same old, same old. Alabama is making its sixth appearance in the seven-year existence of the playoff. Clemson is doing the same, earning a sixth straight berth. Ohio State is in for the fourth time and second straight. Those three have won five of the six CFP championships, with only a Joe Burrow supernova season preventing it from being six-for-six…
If ever there were a season to give a good outlier team its chance, and to demonstrate that the sport is more than just a cartel run by the super-rich, this was the season and Cincinnati was the team.
Will no one think of the Pat Fordes of the world? Here they are here now; entertain them.
