    He needs too....and the entire B1G does as well. I'm sure Bama will be in the Playoff again, and would love to play either Clemson or OSU. Let's see if Clemson runs off with the Trophy like OSU....

    The loser of FSU/Bama almost HAS to run the table. There is a few scenarios with the other Major Conferences (ACC, Big 10, Big 12, Pac 12, SEC) where a 2 Loss ACC/SEC Champ could still get in, but almost all would involve the #4 seed and the team bumped would have to be a weak 1 loss Big 12 champ....this scenario requires a 2 loss Notre Dame.

    Bama will have at least 2 as well...maybe 3

    Spank Michigan please, and then go to the SEC championship with 1 loss (picked up later in the season). All you have in the East is perennial/typical chump team from Georgia, and Tennessee (Georgia's chump to the North) The West Champ may not be Bama, and a sleeper s Arkansas.

    Speaking out of love, from one SEC homer to another. Bama has at least two losses in their schedule this year. Losing down here is unacceptable, and wining 8 out of the last 11 Championships is NOT good enough...especially after wining only 1 of the last 4, with 2 losses coming from the ACC, and the other OSU.

    Saban built the facilities.....that combined with his ability to recruit is what remade Bama

    Bama wasn't in the hunt in '89? Undefeated until Auburn.....folded in the Iron and Sugar Bowl

    Clemson fans? You out there? A few points about your season last yer:
    Do you realize just what you accomplished last year? Beating Auburn, FSU, OSU and Bama? That was the last 7, YES 7 champions in a row!! Bama, Auburn, Bama, Bama, FSU, OSU, and Bama...well done...and now run away for another 2 decades.

    The SEC isn't satisfied unless we win the championship every year....and ask a Bama fan if they are okay with winning half of the last 8? They will tell you it should have been ALL of the last 8.

    Clemson/FSU and the Iron Bowl.....the winners have:
    - Been in the last four Playoffs .... Winner made the playoffs (2013 was the last BCS year and had FSU/Auburn in the Championship)
    - Played Head to Head for 3 of the last 4 Championships .....Winner made the final game

    Now, the 4 teams are playing Home and Home in a cross conference Challenge...1st Game was last year where Clemson best Auburn at Jordan Hare....this year Bama/FSU play in the Kick Off Classic and Auburn travels to Clemson....

    AP Top 25 poll: Alabama is preseason No. 1, Ohio State tops Florida State
    [​IMG]
    With just five days to go until the first game of the 2017 college football season, we officially have our final set of preseason rankings and now know that the most anticipated game of the offseason will feature No. 1 Alabama against No. 3 Florida State on Saturday, Sept. 2 in Atlanta.

    While Alabama has been the overwhelming No. 1 in the AP poll, the Coaches Poll and the CBS Sports 130, the Tide's title hopes rest on becoming the first team since USC in 2004 to win the national championship after starting the year No. 1 in the preseason polls. For the 2017 Trojans, the No. 4 preseason ranking is the highest since a Lane Kiffin and Matt Barkley-led USC squad held the top spot heading into the 2012 season.

    Broken down by conferences, the SEC has the most teams in the preseason poll with six, followed by the ACC and Big 12 with five each, Big Ten and Pac-12 with four each and USF representing the American Athletic Conference to round out the top-25.

    Here's the full preseason AP Top 25 (first-place votes in parenthesis):


    1. Alabama (52)
    2. Ohio State (3)
    3. Florida State (4)
    4. USC (2)
    5. Clemson
    6. Penn State
    7. Oklahoma
    8. Washington
    9. Wisconsin
    10. Oklahoma State
    11. Michigan
    12. Auburn

    The Big 10 has a lot to atone for. Especially my Bucks. I have faith.
