Saban is going to take some heat for that one. Tua doesn’t sound like he’s coming back.

Man I hope this is just a crap site reporting for hits

Bo Jackson crossed my mind when Tua got injured.  Both got tackled when they were trying to power thru with their hips with weight on them from the tacklers, Bo trying to keep on running while being pulled down from the shoulders and Tua while trying to lay out putting stress on his hip while trying to throw long.  

Maybe that is how the universities can compensate athletes -- pay premiums to cover future earnings and medical care in case of debilitating injury playing the sport.

Saban said at half time they were going to take him out after the previous series. They decided he need more 2 min drill practice, so they sent him back out. Tua doesn’t need 2 min practice. Horrible, horrible look for Nicky.

So if PJ Fleck didn't get the unsportsmanlike penalty to offset the Iowas unsportsmanlike for hitting the receiver who had just dropped a pass in his breadbasket on 4th down, who would have had the ball?  Iowa's with a half the distance to the goal walkoff from the 4th down line of scrimmage?

How is it a bad look for Saban? If he was already hobbling on the repaired ankle and reinjured, I get that. 

But a completely separate, freakish injury? I disagree giving him shit for that.

Same. People just are hating on Saban because they hate Bama. 

If Tua was cleared to play by the doctors, and he wanted to play, why wouldn't Saban have him play? 

As for him being out there to end the half, look at Ohio State for a similar comparison. Day keeps Fields to end a half in blowout games the last two weeks. 

If you didn't think Tua should have been out there, then you cannot like Fields out there either.

Have a slight feeling that OSU will be #3 tonight. Committee will say they weren’t overly impressive vs Rutgers

Glad I was wrong and they didn’t let 21 from Rutgers cloud their judgment.

Clemson will never have a top 25 win on their resume.  OSU already has two and likely adds three more.  No way they jump us if we continue winning.  If we beat PSU I expect that to bump us back up to #1.

But they all deserve it over Alabama (well maybe not Oregon now with that L).

In perhaps the biggest game of the CFB season, tonight Ohio U goes for that all-important sixth win to become bowl-eligible in their final game of the year against hilariously-horrible Akron. Be still, my beating heart.

Such a huge contest that ESPN isn't even putting it on their TV MACtion deal. Fucker's on ESPN+, lol.

Jason Candle turning into the next Gregg Brandon for Toledo. After Urban Meyer left BG they kept rolling with his former OC, and then it crashed hard and he was fired. Same thing seems to happening in Toledo, Matt Campbell did great things, UT hired his OC when he left and kept rolling but now it's crashing hard.  6-6 with some seriously ugly losses and first loss to BG since 2009

I knew Utah and Oregon weren’t worthy of their rankings. I feel same about Oklahoma and Baylor.

So this will probably be theoretical by the time anyone reads and responds.

But what if OSU or LSU lose their championship games - do they still belong in the playoff?  I know people put weight on conference championships, and losing late hurts more than an early season loss....but these two looked like the best team in the country for the better part of 3 months.  They are both in with a loss, IMO.  I suppose that should also apply to Clemson.

All the two loss teams should clearly be out, even Alabama (even if they didn't lose Tua).  That leaves Oklahoma/Baylor and Utah.  No way any of those 3 get in over a 1-loss OSU or LSU.

Georgia with 2 losses... This is where I think not winning the conference championship matters when you lost to another team already in the playoff.  And that second loss, even early in the year by 1 point(?), has to be the nail in the coffin.  Now if LSU loses, then that's a heck of a debate.  Especially if it's a close game.  I'm just not a big fan of putting two teams in the playoff when they just met in a conference championship.  Wait, did I just argue AGAINST LSU if they lose to Georgia?!?

OK, so let's say we have Clemson and LSU undefeated and in.

OSU stumbles against WISC (yeah, I know, I'm not taking WISC for less than 100/1).  Who are the other two teams in the playoffs?

For me, OSU.  1-1 against WISC, sure lost in the championship but blew them out 6 weeks ago and WISC still has that other loss.  Then I think I go with the Baylor/Oklahoma winner.

LSU and OSU are in regardless of today. If Clemson loses they’d be out, but they’re not losing. So unless Georgia wins, it’s gonna be the Big 12 champ as #4 (most likely Oklahoma).
Would love to see Clemson lose. Dabo is such a whiner.
