Question Maybe Scott Frost made a mistake coming home?

Nearly the entire B1G West has made very strong moves in the past few years. Northwestern, Purdue, and Minnesota all made huge commitments to football, spending big on facilities and coaches. They...

Arrow SEC still leading the way

Well, LSU got the big road win over Texas and the SEC is in decent shape to get two teams into the CFP. There is even some talk of three! If LSU wins all of their games save for a close loss to...

If LSU beats Texas and UGA beats NDówhich theyíll both be favored to doóthen the SEC will have owned the non-conference portion of the schedule, by a long shot.

Just like Washington against Auburn last year, Oregon left too many points on the field. They could have put this game away early. Two drives with 1st&goal and no points... that will kill you.

Arrow Canít wait. Roll Tide

Oregon has a lot of promise. They bring back quite a bit of their production on both sides of the ball. Still need to get bigger in the trenches but trending in the right direction.

Solid heuristic. I quibble with #4/5... I think once-beaten Oklahoma would get in over once-beaten Ohio State. Once-beaten Michigan is definitely in, imo. But, who knows?
