Don't place your most likely teams with consecutive road games.

Why did UW have a late game @ucla then a game @Oregon?

No other Power 5 conference schedules like that

 

It’s the whole “let the play speak for itself” mentality. Problem is, the play has been getting steadily worse every year for the past decade. The PAC 12 has kinda weirdly prided itself on how much they cannabalize each other. It’s the one excuse that keeps them in the national picture now that USC isn’t giving Ferraris to all the best recruits. They want it to come across almost noble in a sense, we play amongst ourselves! But the truth is nobody wants to come play the late game on the west coast when the teams are usually just good enough to risk :censored:ing up your entire season.

Still must win twice to win the division, son.

Woah woah woah. I just said what a day. I’m worried about Penn State first before I start worrying about winning the division.

Rondale Moore is such a weapon for Purdue.  Just the threat of him getting the ball on the jet sweep can completely open up that inside run.

 

And also... [GameDay at Florida/Georgia for the first time since 2005]

 

 

Just in time to whip these bad boys out again!

Seriously, what on earth was the point of that novelty? Gators are the "road" team this year so problem averted but good grief I will never understand that jersey.

Nike had excess orange fabric that it needed to get rid of.

That Purdue matchup was eerily similar to that Ohio State-Iowa game last year, or was it two years ago? Either way they’ll probably still win the Big Ten since Penn State threw away their season running it up the middle on 4th & 5 and everyone else isn’t good enough.

To be honest, Penn State was never good enough to win the east division. They have an incredibly young defense, a coach who can't coach in the clutch, and receivers that can't catch the ball. They were a 9-3 team at best, IMO.

If Michigan beats Penn State I'd say they're in the drivers seat all the way through the Ohio State game. Instead of the two possibly sneaking in to the playoffs, one's getting knocked out and likely headed to the Rose Bowl.

I'm editing this so it looks less... wrong.

 

Florida was better through three quarters but shot themselves in the foot and gave Georgia too many gifts.  Having to play from behind doesn't suit them with Franks and ultimately, the game was made to look a lot more lopsided that it was.  Also, Florida likely gets off the field probably and has the ball down 6 if not for a missed hold that led to the TD that busted it open.  

 

Overall, I'm pretty happy with where Florida is at right now.

Mizzou has zero 1st Downs in the second half versus Kentucky and blows a 14-3 lead.

Until today, Kentucky really couldn't defend the pass buy they've done well. That defense might be able to hang with a pass poor Georgia team.

 

Stoops is 4-1 as an underdog this year and 13-4 since '16.

Some utterly bizarre play by Georgia on the goal lines today. That 8th and goal sequence was absolutely pathetic, and I’m glad the result will force it to be forgotten. 

 

And just as everyone predicted, the SEC East will be determined next weekend with Georgia vs. Kentucky. Potentially a top-10 Kentucky, no less.

Alabama slaughtering Kentucky 70-3 in the SEC title game. Appointment television right there.

And just like that, Bama's only good win on the season doesn't actually look all that good.

A&M? Yeah, it's time for their second half disappearing act. It was like that when RC Slocumb was coaching too and became an annual tradition with Sumlin. To be fair, Clemson's statement win victim last week is getting beat up by the team they barely survived so maybe Syracuse is better than people believe or NC State just didn't get ready this week.

Poor Washington

As bad as California played last week, this is pretty poor from Washington. I know you're not making the playoffs but at least put up an effort.

I assume Oregon is trying to get revenge on Washington State by ruining their strength of schedule.
