My dark horse pick in TCU has come to life. They aren’t hiding in the shadows anymore. Currently undefeated at 9-0 this wasn’t expected for them to be this high of a rank, to begin with. They’ve had tough obstacles to overcome at Oklahoma State and Kansas State. While they haven’t been on everyone’s radar, they are now all of a sudden expected to get deflated by Quinn Ewers’ led Texas Longhorns crew.
With Texas accumulating solid victories against Iowa State, Oklahoma, and Kansas State, and putting up a fight against Alabama while eluding a loss, this team is very much a powerhouse and will create an extreme “Battle of Texas” in their upcoming matchup with TCU. Currently, with the factors of TCU not being as electric, some would say, as we’ve seen when they played teams earlier in their slate like Oklahoma State, and Texas now warming up with their offense, TCU has been placed as a major underdog on the road at +250 with their matchup at the Longhorns’ house.
I strongly don’t agree with this. I get it; they’ve been counted out from the start. But they’ve been wrong! And I think they will be again. It’s going to come down to, in my opinion, Heisman runner-up quarterback Max Duggan. With 24 touchdowns on his senior season, we’re going to need to see at least 2 more this upcoming week for them to have a chance at a pretty 10-0 record. They’ll eventually learn not to count out them TCU horned frogs.
Alabama is out of it
Nick Saban is probably infuriated. His Crimson Tide lost again in an extremely tight match against LSU in overtime when Jason Taylor’s son snagged an amazing grab right over the pylon to win the game in overtime. Bryce Young didn’t even play badly. Jayden Daniels just played better. This creates a lot of hope and opportunity if you think about it in the long run for college football. When’s the last time Alabama hasn’t been elite? Ya, it’s been a while. This downward spiral for the program while for Tuscaloosa is bad, for the rest of the league is healthy, and will allow top 5-star recruits to be more spread out across the board in the upcoming seasons instead of the majority pack always choosing Bama.
Now I know they don’t choose the program strictly because they’re the Tide; they choose it for the great coach over there, Nick Saban. With him already being 71, that’s what makes this equation work. With the current state of Alabama, I think the downfall will eventually draw Saban out in these next few seasons and overall flatten their elite status a bit. But for now, we’ll see how this affects Bryce Young’s draft stock. Most Alabama QBs are usually drafted for how far their team assists and propels them to a high-level bowl game or college football playoff; with that most likely, not the case this season, it’ll be interesting to see how that affects where Bryce gets selected and how future recruit’s mentalities when choosing this program will change because of it.
Georgia is going to win it all
Stetson Bennett proved me wrong. Throwing 257 yards and 2 touchdowns against a stout Volunteers defense with his squad basically running over Tennessee is very impressive. It wasn’t even close. With their massive home victory of 27-13, they get to reclaim their deserved 1st seeding in the college football playoff, and in my opinion, you will see them crowned again in the championship very soon. Their squad really doesn’t have a missing piece, and you could even consider them the new Alabama.
