LAMM AT LARGE: The CFP Committee Has Tough Decision Ahead

todayNovember 22, 2022

Background
The job of the College Football Playoff selection committee became more difficult last weekend.
All four of the unbeaten teams won but done were impressive. Two, Michigan and TCU, won on last-second fields. Top-rated Georgia was unimpressive beating a struggling Kentucky 16-6. Second-rated Ohio State got into a shootout with unranked Maryland.
The biggest loser was fifth-rated Tennessee. The Vols were embarrassed, 63-38, at South Carolina. North Carolina’s surprising loss against lowly Georgia Tech eliminated the Tar Heels.
Clemson is now a likely pick for the CFP. Out of the blue Alabama, LSU and Southern Cal are very much in the mix.
Ohio State plays Michigan this week. The loser, particularly if it’s the Wolverines, will be eliminated. TCU needs to be leery of Iowa State. Clemson plays South Carolina and its dangerous QB Spencer Rattler. Southern Cal plays a revived Notre Dame. Georgia, Alabama and LSU are all huge favorites.
Could two SEC teams make the 4-team playoff? Probably. Could three? Maybe.
Is there a better time of the year in college football than right now?

My problem with soccer is I don't understand the game. Extra time, penalty kicks, substitution . . . you […]

Except for the College Football Playoff, this should be the best weekend of the season, the conference championships. It isn't this year. There's a serious lack of suspense. There could be more blowouts than ever. In the SEC, unbeaten Georgia is a big favorite over LSU in Atlanta. In the Big […]

LAMM AT LARGE: The Jaguars Are Building Something

Usually, it takes hindsight to see when an NFL franchise changes directions  - for the good or bad. But this time the change clubbed us over the head. I truly believe the Jaguars incredible comeback in defeating the visiting Ravens last Sunday was a major turning point, particularly for quarterback […]
