Bet would be that IF GA plays either OH ST or MICH in the championship... GA wins. But we can wait until it's closer.


I don't know what happened to my reply, I will try to reconstruct it.

I never said Auburn was a power house this year. I simply said they were a common foe for both Georgia and Penn State. I heard a number of times how tough it is to play at Auburn and Penn State did play at Auburn and almost beat them by as much as Georgia did when Georgia played them at home. Surly you can see my point.

If Ohio State plays Georgia I will be game for a bet.

Georgia knew exactly what it would take to beat Auburn, and did just enough to get the win.

Penn St. didn't really know what they were getting into, and beat a weak Auburn team.....Penn St. lucked out to play them when they did at home.

If it were say the National Championship Penn State's win spread would not be comparable to a Georgia win spread.

Surely you can see my point.

I'm interested to see if Bama can beat Auburn this year, lol. Auburn sucks, but so does Bama, and Auburn plays their heart out at the Iron Bowl.

Yeah, not looking too good for Bama. That’s the thing about these home state rivals…anything can happen. One team is too cocky and the other has nothing to lose.

You are right about one thing KY, Auburn was lucky to play Penn State when they did. Penn State is a much better team now then they were back in September

There's not 3 teams in the entire nation that could beat GA right now. The Big 10 east ain't got crap. Penn St is like 1-15 against top 15 teams, and OSU and Michigan have played Div II schedules up to this point. It'll be a repeat of last year. One of them will get paired up against Georgia and get dragged. Again.

I know, they beat Tennessee by 14 points but a 4 loss South Carolina team destroyed the Volunteers.

List up the quality, emphasis on QUALITY, wins of OSU, MICH, and PSU. OSU and Mich are being based off of what, beating PSU? That's like beating the special needs kid. Compare schedule strengths. There's zero comparison. Georgia's will remain number 1 until someone beats them. It's that simple.

KY/Coyote, Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State to name 3.

How much you wanting to put on that? Penn St won't get a chance so they're out. GA has the defense to match up with either OSU or Michigan. Michigan ain't gonna beat anyone if their running game gets stopped, that was proven by Illinois last weekend. GA has the secondary to shut down OSU's passing game. Tennessee has receivers as good or better than OSU and GA put 5 stars on them and shut them down. I believe you don't actually watch any football outside of the Big10 footprint.

Not making injury excuses because Penn State has won those 3 games by lopsided scores. They know how to play defense which is something the SEC teams don't seem to know much about. You my friend are the one that should not be fooled. I hope I live long enough to see this Penn State team play at least another season.

Their starting QB is like 40 lol. Hardly young. How did their defense do against Michigan? PSU is 23rd in total defense. When Missouri played Tennessee they were 13th in total defense, Tennessee knocked them down to 31st. GA is 5th. Michigan is currently 1st, but have played one of the weakest schedules in the country. We'll see which team gets exposed this weekend between OSU-MICH.

The quarterback is a sore spot with me. They have a freshman quarterback that I wish would be starting. The defense has come on big time since the Michigan game. It took some time for the first year defensive coordinator to make an impact.

Defense and offense rankings can be misleading. If your a division 1 school playing against high school talent of course your stats should look good !
Just saying

I don't really care that much who wins the national championship. Who get into the playoffs is just a popularity contest anyway.

But, undefeated Michigan and OSU meeting to play for the Big10 championship is a much anticipated game.

National championships are to sell TV commercials. In college football, it's the conference championships, bowl games, and traditional rivalries that are all the fun.

Bound by everlasting bands?
None shall take thee
From the Strength of Israel's hands.
