Ranking the Power 5 Football Conferences after Week 3 with Playoff Analysis

While the playoff committee doesn’t rank the power 5 conference, there is no way conference strength – which means OOC results doesnt figure in to a committee members thought process.

Taking stock of NC State 3 games into the football season.

Good evening all you ACC football fans. As a NC State fan, I came into this season with aspirations of 9 or if the cards fell right, a 10 win season. After the first 3 weeks NC State is 2-1, not a bad record, but not ideal. NC State lost to South Carolina because, South …

Clemson looks scary good while flat trouncing Louisville.

All I could think of as I was watching Clemson flatten Louisville was this team might be better than last year’s national championship team. That is bad news for the rest of the ACC and the rest of the country. Clemson was Louisville’s Super Bowl this year. It was their biggest home game of the …

At 3-0, this Duke Football deserves more Blue Devil fans show up to their home games.

Duke played a sloppy game today against a bad Baylor team. They won 34-20, and moved to 3-0. Daniel Jones made some uncharacteristic mistakes at QB, and the secondary gave up a couple long TD passes. You never really felt Baylor would win the game though. A win is a win. They took care of …

The @ESPN FPI continues to be good for some laughs.

It’s become a yearly tradition here on the blog. We get a good laugh at how inaccurate ESPN’s FPI is as predictor and actual rankings system. We laughed in 2015 and we laughed in 2016.  Let’s laugh again in 2017, as Ohio State who I’d personally ranked around 12 or 13, are the number 1 team …

Clemson makes early case to be a playoff contender with suffocating win over Auburn.

The year after Deshaun Watson left Clemson, we wondered if the Tigers were capable of reaching the playoffs again. After Clemson’s suffocating win over Auburn, we can safely say they are capable of reaching the playoffs. It all starts with the Tigers defense which features the country’s best front four. This is what I predicted …
