Your (non-Dawg) game day post

We’ve got three after the Peach Bowl:

And here are the current spreads, per ESPN:

And brief thoughts on each:

  • No idea what to make of the Citrus, given the coaching change and all that typically ensues from something like that.  Both teams play better defense than offense, so the four-point spread in the abstract doesn’t bother me.  Northwestern gave Ohio State a decent fight in the championship game, but ran out of gas and had a disastrous time defending the run in the second half.  Cox is Cox Nix is Nix, damn it, but Auburn can run the ball and Tank Bigsby is out for the game.  Your guess is as good as mine, but I’d probably go with the Wildcats.
  • Alabama by 19.5?  And people think expanding the playoffs is going to make for better football?  Sure, man.  Take the Tide and the points.
  • The CFP meteor game ought to be a real hoot.  No matter who wins, I’m going to cringe.  Given I think Ohio State’s defense has shown some weakness defending the pass and Fields has looked just a little bit shaky at times recently, I think Clemson covers.  On the bright side, that ought to be good for at least one more comment from Dabo to chew on.

And you?

    Thanks!…..gonna be interesting to see how Fields plays against a quality defense.

    His draft status has dropped.

    I’ll laugh my ass off if donut state and ND win. I’ll laugh my ass off when the taters and Bama beat the shit out of those two entitled media dahlinks. Gonna be a good day, y’all.
    Go Dawgs!

  4. Bama destroys Notre Dame – I imagine the Tide puts up half a hundred.

    Clemson beats anOSU soundly – the Tiggers are playing great right now. They really have been under the radar between the ND loss and the ACC championship.

    Auburn should beat Northwestern, but Auburn has been so bad at times this year.

  6. Gonna root for Norte Dame. With us 3-0 they’re starting to feel like a little brother. Can we replace them for tech?

  7. I hope Notre Dame is competitive. They have the front seven to defend the run and if they bracket Smith they can do it. I also think Clemson slaughters Ohio State.

    Saban managed to show his ass..LOL..They didn’t call it on “The Alabama Bench” but on “The Alabama Head Coach”. The guy had the game out of reach and was still that keyed up on the sideline. I suppose that’s at least one of the traits that makes him so successful.
