    Do you have Ohio State over Alabama because Michigan State is the best win between the two? I agree that they’re the two best teams in college football (right now), and Fields is the type of QB that gives us nightmares. I’ll feel good against anyone if our offense stays healthy, but starting 5 true freshman on D against that offense is not a pleasant thought.

    Honestly, we're 1A and 1B right now. Bama starting slow and giving up 31 to Ole Miss is the difference for me right now

    Starting slow? Vs Ole Miss? They scored on the first drive and scored 38 in the 1h. And 14 of the 31 came with backups in when Bama was up 35 in the 1h. That's like me knocking OSU for giving up 21 to FAU while ignoring 14 of them came with OSU up 30 in thr 4th. Not arguing OSU vs Bama, just those two comments seemed off. I will say Bama's D need to improve over the season. Freshmen need to grow up quick.

    I acknowledged that it was splitting hairs. Ole Miss led into the 2nd Q and you ended up giving up nearly 500 yards to them.

    Clemson's toughest remaining game is Wake Forest at home.

    I'd say the ACC title game might be harder but they don't have to play Wake Forest again in Charlotte because of the ACC's sorting hat divisions.

    They haven't been one dimensional this year but I'll need to see them do it vs a good D (Texas isn't that) before I trust it. It's been so bad for so long that I'm not going to overreact to 5 games to start the season. The Burrow hype reminds of the Fournette hype and he had about 20 yards in his biggest game. Burrow may be different so we'll see.

    Doing it on the road certainly makes it lean in LSU’s favor. I think Texas and ND are similarly good teams, but going there has to account for something.

    I'm skeptical about their defense. Giving up 38 to Texas at a neutral site isn't great, but giving up 38 on the road to Vanderbilt definitely isn't good.

    Fair.

    Clemson has been sleepwalking for sure. Will be interesting to see how much the UNC game stirred them. They got lazy and fat over the offseason, hard to turn that around on a dime midway through the year.

    Neither of those are results based arguments, they’re talent/potential.

    On paper, only 2-3 teams should be able to hang with Clemson, but they’ve consistently played like a group that could get beat by most of the top 25 on an average day.

    You’ve had two games with remote competition. I’m not arguing that Bama’s schedule has been Murderer’s Row, but we’ve yet to need to thwart a two-point conversion to beat Mack Brown.

    Theoretically it was Texas A&M. By competition, I just mean a team that could theoretically challenge an above-average team.

    As I said, it’s not a matter of what Clemson’s capable of; they’re a top 3 talented team at worst. But they’ve looked lazy and lethargic to start this year and I’m not sure how that’s particularly debatable.

    Offense has looked bad relative to expectations, especially against UNC. But long term there is a lot of proven talent there and proven good coaching.

    I think we will be in a good spot by November/December.

    Defense has been better than expected in pretty much every area. Beyond my wildest expectations to date.
