I have Clemson and Oklahoma winning the semis and Clemson winning it all in a close game

Clemson v Oklahaoma. Clemson in a close one.

Baker Mayfield is so fucking fun to watch. Every play Oklahoma runs on offense would be the equivalent of like the greatest play Michigan ran all year. They make it look easy.

My money is on Oklahoma. That offense and offensive line is just dominating right now... Also a little salty to see Erik Swenson starting for them after the whole debacle with his recruiting at Michigan.

I've been thinking it will be Oklahoma, but if their defense plays like this against whoever wins the other semi, maybe not so much...

Think Bama will house Clemson FWIW. Despite last year's championship result (which was fantastic and well-deserved), Saban >>>>> Dabo.

I'd like an explanation of why my account, "Orlando" was banned. Some guy made a post calling the entire blog bad fans, and I defended the blog. I used foul language (shit, dick) but nothing that I haven't seen on the blog before, let alone today. My post had ~15 likes, 1 dislike before I was banned. The post I was replying to had twenty-something dislikes and zero likes.

I'm really hoping Alabama and Oklahoma win today. I think that's best for Michigan.

Any Saban win removes an opportunity for some other squad to insert itself at that echelon we are so far from. That's something...but almost nothing. Meanwhile, an Alabama win also further cements Saban as the game's best coach, and widens the margin between him and the others, which zero-sumly reduces the Meyer hype. Beyond that, it's gotta be best for everyone except Clemson if Dabo doesn't get established as "Equal to Saban, except young."

As for OU/Georgia, OU is of meh significance to Michigan in recruiting and off season bravado, whereas Georgia has been front and center. A Kirby win would be an extra dagger in the ribs.

After that, I don't really care, but I do think the Alabama status quo is the best scenario, as it is the worst case scenario in perception for those programs in the #2-#10 range over the last decade. I'd rather not see the end and beginning of *another* next era/dynasty in CFB with Michigan languishing in the same mediocre stratum.

Let Alabama continue the roll they're on.
