Some years you don't need any playoffs at all. Just save everyone the time and give it to Georgia.
Having watched the Saders all year, I was optimistically hoping for a repeat of the Fordham/UNH game minus Fordham's turnovers. HC's defense was its weak spot after losing its best player 3 or 4 games into the season. But yesterday, they snuffed out the run completely and the weather ruined the passing game for both teams.0-1! I really liked UNH's chances -- color me impressed with Holy Cross.
Many have been saying this since September. There has to be so much more going on behind the scenes when it comes to playing time, etc with others aside from the head coach influencing who plays (donors, AD, etc). I’ve felt the same way about K-St all year to a lesser degree as they also had their most effective QB on the field yesterday.Seconded. Dabo’s puzzling loyalty to QB5 was an anchor on Clemson’s offense all season.
I think this has been going on forever, with the mostly noteable being Henson getting those 2Q snaps over Brady at a min, but even moreso now with the portal in both CFB and CBB. If you don’t play a kid he’s as good as gone.I wonder if it's just a transfer portal thing? To land a guy or keep a guy, you have to make promises that you wouldn't otherwise.

* Tulane and USC will square off in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic, per a report by Brett McMurphy.
* Clemson and Tennessee will do battle in the Capital One Orange Bowl, also from a McMurphy report.
Tulane in the Cotton Bowl? That seems insane. I know they had a good season, but Tulane seemed more like a team that could drop down to FCS than go to a major bowl game, as they repeatedly finished below .500, in the bottom half of whatever conference they were bouncing between. One winning season in the prior eight. They were 2-10 last year!Bowl matchups are coming out.
What does last year have to do with this one?Tulane in the Cotton Bowl? That seems insane.

I'm not saying they don't deserve it. It's just a remarkable change of direction for a program that mostly seemed to serve a punching bag for big time Southern schools and to round out the random collection of Misfit Toys comprising whatever Conference USA used to be.What does last year have to do with this one?
Also, Tulane beat K. State by 7. The same K. State team that beat TCU to win the Big 12 championship— the TCU team that just got selected for the 4 team playoff.
What’s the problem?Need a Snickers?
