What a slate of games!

Sparty vs. Buckeyes @ noon.
OSU vs. Iowa State @ noon.
Dawgs travel to Auburn to face the Tigers @ 3:30.
Badgers host the Hawkeyes @ 3:30.
'Bama @ Mississippi State @ 7.
TCU invades Norman @ 8.

And then, the big one IMO: the Irish @ Canes @ 8. I'm already counting down the seconds to kickoff. Go Irish!

Miami D is suffocating

Donít care about either team  
WillVAB : 11/11/2017 9:41 pm : link
But Kellyís gameplan sucks. Consistently running plays to the weakest side of your line. Consistently letting Miami DL to make plays from the back side without making adjustments.

Ride your horses who got you here. Run behind the left side. Take advantage of the DL aggressiveness and run some screens.

I'm actually surprised he's riding Adams so much. He's too slow for this Miami def. They need to mix it up and run 34 a bit more. He seems quicker than Adams.

What you heard is legitimate. They have rolled through the sport all year at will until now. It's shocking.
70% of bet slips  
aimrocky : 11/11/2017 10:22 pm : link
And 71% of the money were on ND -3.5 and the line NEVER shifted.

Similar situation with Miss St (78% of slips & 82% of money) and the line sat at 14 or 14.5.

Vegas felt really good about Miami and Miss St coming to play today.

was there any real doubt that Bama wouldn't win?

They found something on offense late in the 1st half last week against Virginia Tech and their confidence has just snowballed. They deserve to be ranked #2 behind Alabama because the wins over VT and ND validate the undefeated record

Teams are starting to drop off. Bama is a machine. Even if they lose at Clemson they just reload every year. What Saban has built after really shitting the bed in Miami puts him up with the best ever. They better pray Saban doesn't want to prove he can do it in the NFL.

Also there still some whining at times about the play off system. Pretty much it work.

Surprised ND got rolled that bad but Richt might be the best coach Miami has had since JJ. Recruiting has never been the issue.

Yeah, once the high schools in South Florida that are the best in the country at prep football see Richt as their #1 guy, the Hurricanes will start to build that wall around South Florida the way they used to back in the 80s
And it's Miami Clemson. I for some

Reason always get Auburn and Clemson mixed up.

Miami has always been able to recruit of its past. They don't have the best facilities or their own stadium, but their reputation still lingers. They just needed a x and o coach. Kids from NJ also seem to love the U. I expect
Them to still get most of their kids from S Florida but w

Their defense is SO fast, arguably even faster than Alabama's right now. I'd take a couple of their linebackers on the Giants right now (think of Armstead and Barrow)
Holy shit.

Just finished watching the ND/U game.

The Irish got their shit pushed in. Wow.

Everyone was talking about the Canes being overrated.

Uhhh. What?

What a complete dominating beat down. That was ridiculous.

Get your fuckin shinebox.

I was nervous for probably the first time since the opener against FSU. Miss St. played a hell of a game.

Jalen came through at the end, though. I love Calvin Ridley. He's going to be a good pro.

I don't really understand why Saban (well, Daboll really) doesn't utilize Scarbrough more. Even Dame Harris doesn't get enough touches. I feel like Bama has the horses to just wear teams out on the ground, but Hurts is the one running the ball more than any of the backs.

Granted, he's got good wheels for a QB and he can make plays - but he averaged like 2 ypc tonight while Harris only needed 8 totes to get near 100 yards. Theres another Harris kid who didn't even get a carry and there's Josh Jacobs too.

Defenses can't stop these RB's. There shouldn't be games like this where none of them even hit double digit carries.

End of the day, though - Hurts got his WR's the ball at the end of the game to get in there and win it.

I do feel like this team is beatable. A team like Auburn would be a tough matchup. Bama has lost a bunch of defensive players to injury and can be scored on. I suppose we'll see.

I wasn't that surprised by Auburn taking it to Georgia - but I didn't think the U would wipe the floor with the Irish like they did. Oof. A lot is still up in the air. Fun season so far.

Auburn 6th.

Looks like there will be a pre-playoff playoff in Miami-Clemson ACC championship game, possisbly a Ohio,State-Wisconsin championship game and a,possible OK-OK State championship game. SEC could complicate things with 2 teams should Alabama lose to either Auburn or Georgia.

arc, good point here and it's something that's frustrated me with Urban Meyer and Ohio State lately. Pattern with every time we lose is we forget about the RBs and just run JT constantly. Each loss since 2015 JT has had more carries than the main RB, either Zeke, Weber, or JK this season. Three really good RBs. I don't understand it really, seems like even Bama has been guilty of it but it hasn't cost you yet. It's cost us

Seemed like we finally figured that out this week and both Weber and JK had big days and the Buckeyes wiped the floor with a pretty good Michigan State team team. And while I'm happy with the performance, I can't help but be frustrated with it taking two losses and their playoff hopes likely gone to finally realize the mistake

Fun day of games though overall. It really has been a great season in general
Even in a best case I didn't think Miami was a top 5 team this year  
Eric on Li : 11/12/2017 10:34 am : link
but I was wrong. What that front 7 did to the ND oline was impressive. Miami's D has lived in the backfield and beat up QB's all year, but they turned it up against that OL. The offense can be inconsistent but if Rosier continues to play well they have the talent to beat anyone. Amazing that they've dominated these last 2 games with their best offensive players injured or doing very little.
I think it will be Alabama, Oklahoma, Miami, and Clemson....  
Crispino : 11/12/2017 11:01 am : link
in that order, when the new rankings come out. in the end, Wisconsin may play their way into the playoffs. Very much up for grabs.
