I was going to post something about how this chaos narrative that’s sweeping through our national punditry is undercut by Alabama’s and Georgia’s utter dominance through five games, but David Hale did such a good job of it that I’m outsourcing my post to his.
But the scariest thing about Saturday for the rest of the college football world was that it hardly seemed like the ceiling for Alabama and Georgia. They played dominant football while seemingly having more in the tank.
Indeed, you’re either elite or you’re not. And right now, that’s a particularly exclusive club with membership offers to just two teams.
I know it’s just the first week of October, but the irony of college football’s grand poobahs debating a 12-team playoff during a season that looks like the national champion should be decided in the SECCG is rich indeed.
