Daly Dose #106 The College Football Playoff Mess

This week on the Daly Dose Sports Podcast we take a look at the College Football Playoff Final Four. The selection committee chose Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, and Washington. But did they have an agenda for selecting those teams? And who got left out?

We offer a few solutions for how to fix the current college football playoff system, and do a quick interview with new LSU head coach Ed Orgeron.

This week in the NFL there were a few teams that took a big step backward. We look at which teams disappointed us in Week 13.

It is very early in the NBA season, but a couple of players are off to a very good start, and one team is surprisingly awful.

Finally we count down the Daly Dose Top 5 College Football snubs of all time!

Here are a few of our nominations for worst NFL uniforms!

The Daly Dose Sports College Football Top 10

Our first full weekend of college football kicks off tonight. Check out our Daly Dose Sports College Football Top 10 to see just who we think are the top teams in the country.

At least until they lose.

And then we will want nothing to do with them.

1. Alabama Crimson Tide

Next game: Sept 3rd vs USC (Arlington, TX)

Oh we know. Bama doesn’t have a quarterback, but since when has that stemmed the Tide? Nick Saban has found a way to reload year after year, and continue winning, without great play under center. Odd that the Prince of Darkness would waste his time coaching college football, instead of battling God, or angels, or Santa Claus or something. But to each their own.

2. Oklahoma Sooners    

Next game: Sept 3rd vs Houston

If Oklahoma can get by Houston and Ohio State early then we could see “Big Game” Bob Stoops back in another big game at season’s end.  Of course, Big Game Bob doesn’t usually win those big games, but at least he has that cool nickname that isn’t the least bit ironic.

3. Florida State Seminoles    

Next game: Sept 5th vs. Ole Miss (Orlando, FL)

The Noles have a talented group returning, including RB Dalvin Cook, but the schedule is nasty. Out of conference dates with Ole Miss and Florida, plus a solid ACC schedule, will mean that unlike the grades their players receive… Florida State will have to earn this.

4. LSU Tigers

Next game: Sept 3rd vs Wisconsin (Green Bay, WI)

One year after nearly getting fired, Les Miles returns with veteran talent and high expectations.  Can the “Mad Hatter” live up to those lofty goals? Does he even know about them? Does he even know where he is right now? Probably not.

5. Stanford Cardinal   

Next game: Sept 2nd vs Kansas State   

It will be the Pac 12’s mission to stop Christian McCaffrey. The do everything back returns after setting the NCAA record for yardage, but Stanford did lose some of their OL and QB Kevin Hogan. Can a white RB lead a top team to a national championship in 2016? And will the world actually come to an end if he does?

6. Michigan Wolverines    

Next game: Sept 3rd vs Hawaii

Michigan returns as much talent as anyone in the Big 10, and Jim Harbaugh is at his best in his first three or four seasons. The defense could be excellent and while there are questions at QB, let’s not forget this guy went to the Super Bowl with Colin freaking Kaepernick. No really.

7. UCLA Bruins   

Next game: Sept 3rd at Texas A&M

Sophomore QB Josh Rosen looks like he could be special. And while the Bruins have to replace some key players, he could be enough to carry them. Unless this offensive line can’t protect him. Because then they will be carrying him. Off the field.

8. Ohio State Buckeyes

Next game: Sept 3rd vs Bowling Green

The Buckeyes lost a ton of NFL talent, but they still have JT Barrett which gives hope to the people in Columbus.  But when you realize that Barrett couldn’t beat out Cardale Jones a year ago…that hope may start to fade.

9. Tennessee Volunteers   

Next game: Sept 3rd vs Appalachian State

For the first time since Phillip Fulmer was run out of town, the Vols legitimately have a chance to challenge in the SEC, and have a shot in the national playoff picture. Sure, they’ll probably drop a game along the way that they shouldn’t, but it wouldn’t be Tennessee if they didn’t.

10. Clemson Tigers

Next game:

Yes, we realize that Clemson is in most everyone’s top five, but we don’t trust the Tigers defense, and truth be told, we aren’t sure that Barney Fife Dabo Swinney has another big season in him.

The Daly Dose College Football Preview: The Southeastern Conference 

This is it.

The big one.

That land where college football is a religion, and the teams are loaded with future NFL stars.

The SEC has won 8 of the last 10 national championships, and if you aren’t sure which conference is the best…the fans will remind you.

Sure, most of those fans didn’t actually attend these places of higher learning. But don’t worry about that. Just be impressed that they can actually spell “S-E-C”.

East

1. Tennessee Volunteers

Predicted finish: 10-2   

This is it. This is the season that head coach Butch Jones has been building for, and the year that Vols fans have been waiting for. The offense should be potent under QB Josh Dobbs. The defense should be improved. This is your year, UT. Don’t blow it.

2. Georgia Bulldogs   

Predicted finish: 9-3   

Georgia ran off former head coach and nice guy Mark Richt, primarily because in 15 seasons he won 74% of his games, but went just 5-10 against arch-rival Florida. But would Bulldog fans be happy if they lost more games overall, had jerk for a coach, but beat Florida? Well yeah, obviously.

3. Florida Gators

Predicted finish: 9-3

The Gators got back to winning last year, going 10-4 and making it to the SEC Championship.  And then we saw a number of UF players get arrested in the off-season. Head coach Jim McElwain wanted to get Florida back to where they were under Urban Meyer. And he seems to be on his way.

4. South Carolina Gamecocks

Predicted finish: 7-5   

South Carolina goes from Steve Spurrier to Will Muschamp. I’ve seen Steve Spurrier. I’ve watched Steve Spurrier. You, Will Muschamp, are no Steve Spurrier.

5. Missouri Tigers

Predicted finish: 5-7

Coming off of a disappointing season, the Tigers will look to improve behind a stout defense. But with a young QB and an inexperienced offensive line, Mizzou could be in for another long year. At least they have a quiet, peaceful campus to go home to.

6. Vanderbilt Commodores

Predicted finish: 5-7

The Dores have a solid defense, and least season QB Kyle Shurmur and RB Ralph Webb were at least productive enough to beat Missouri and Kentucky. Oh, I know that isn’t much, but this is Vandy we are talking about.

7. Kentucky Wildcats

Predicted finish: 4-8   

The Wildcats had a pretty loaded roster and eight home games in 2015, and managed just a 5-7 record. A more challenging schedule, and less talent, will leave Kentucky fans wondering for the millionth time “Why couldn’t we get Bob Stoops instead of Mark?”

West

1. Alabama Crimson Tide

Predicted finish: 11-1   

Nick Saban just keeps plugging in new talent and winning year after year, despite not getting stellar play from his quarterbacks. But at some point, that deal he made with the Devil has to run out, doesn’t it?

2. LSU Tigers

Predicted finish: 10-2   

LSU has the talent and experience to contend for an SEC and maybe even national title. But a nasty schedule could keep them from reaching those lofty goals. Oh, and also…Les Miles.

3. Ole Miss Rebels   

Predicted finish: 9-3   

The Rebels went 10-3 a year ago, and they have the talent and recruits to contend again this year. If they can get past Florida State in the opener, Ole Miss could be in the hunt for some impressive accomplishments that will be forcibly vacated in the very near future.

4. Auburn Tigers

Predicted finish: 8-4   

The Tigers were preseason favorites to contend for a National Championship last year, but instead struggled, going just 7-6. It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, as Auburn has always struggled when they have high expectations.  No wonder Cam Newton went there.

5. Texas A&M Aggies  

Predicted finish: 7-5

A&M lost reliable punter Drew Kaser which could be a bit of a problem, because they signed OU transfer QB Trevor Knight. So we know they are going to need to replace Kaser, because they are going to be punting. A lot.

6. Arkansas Razorbacks   

Predicted finish: 6-6   

The Razorbacks are going to be rebuilding their offensive line and breaking in a new quarterback.  That doesn’t sound like a good combination to us. Like Bret Bielema in a China shop.

7. Mississippi Bulldogs

Predicted finish: 5-7

Dan Mullen has to try to find a way to replace Dak Prescott. That won’t prove to be an easy task, but the Bulldogs should still have enough talent to get a bowl berth. If that means anything.
