College Football Takeaways Week 7

Biggest Takeaway in the SEC

Jason- Tennessee needs to change something if not EVERYTHING

Dan- With a heartbreaking loss to UCLA and only an 8 point loss to Alabama, Texas A&M is the most underrated team in the nation.

Zach- After Tennessee’s loss to South Carolina, Butch Jones needs to be fired ASAP.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the Pac-12

Jason- QB’s can’t win you games and it’s evident from Falk, Rosen, Browning etc.

Dan- With no Pac 12 team in the top 10, it’s looking like we won’t see this conference represented in the Playoff.

Zach- Bryce Love is the best player in College Football.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the ACC + ND

Jason- Clemson is still the 2nd best team in the nation

Dan- I never thought I’d say this but Virginia might be 9-1 heading to Miami in November.

Zach- Clemson is fine. Kelly Bryant played injured the entire game until he left the game with a concussion. They never really had a quarterback. With a bye next week, they will rest up and bounce back.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the Big 12

Jason- I’m still not buying the TCU hype

Dan- Oklahoma has a tough road ahead of them with maybe 4 ranked teams to finish the year. I don’t see the Playoff in their future.

Zach- Kenny Hill is one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the nation.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the Big 10

Jason- Michigan State is legit… they just need to put it all together

Dan- These next two weeks will prove if Penn State belongs with the best of college football.

Zach- Michigan is terrible. They are not a fun team to watch at all.

 

Bold Prediction for the Season

Dan: Wisconsin finishes with an undefeated regular season and loses to Penn State in the Big Ten Title.

Jason: Clemson wins the National Championship.

Zach: Washington finishes the season 8-4.

College Football Week 4 Takeaways

Biggest Takeaway in the SEC

Dan: The SEC Championship (Alabama vs Georgia) will be a play in game into the playoff.

Jason: Georgia is and has been legit. Saturday was no surprise.

Zach: The SEC is a two-team race between Alabama and Georgia.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the Big 10

Dan: The winner of Penn State and Ohio State will make the playoff.

Jason: Michigan State lost one game… when they went to the CFP…. they lost to ND that year. Relax ND and MSU fans.

Zach: The injury of Wilton Speight saved Michigan’s season.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the Pac 12

Dan: Myles Gaskin proved why he is one of the most underrated players in the nation.

Jason: UCLA is too reliant on Rosen.

Zach: This weekend was yet another example of how Washington will continue to win until they play someone good.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the ACC (+Notre Dame)

Dan: The winner of NC State and Clemson will win the Atlantic division.

Jason: NC State won a game against a team that was rusty and without its starting QB… they are not legit yet.

Zach: Cam Akers needs to be more involved if Florida State does not want to throw this season away.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the Big 12

Dan: The Big 12 is the worst Power 5 conference, but there is still a very good chance that either Oklahoma, TCU, or Oklahoma State could make the Playoff.

Jason: Mason Rudolph’s Heisman campaign slipped considerably and has to win out to have a shot

Zach: The Big 12 is the worst conference in the Power 5. Outside of Oklahoma, the Big 12 has no shot to win the CFP.

 

Player of the Week

Dan: Darius Anderson

Jason: Saquon Barkley

Zach: Saquon Barkley

 

Surprise Player of the Week

Dan: KJ Costello

Jason: John O’Korn

Zach: Zach Smith

 

Bold Prediction for the Season

Dan: TCU will be undefeated heading into Norman in November.

Jason: Michigan State recovers and finishes 9-3

Zach: Notre Dame finishes the season 10-2.

College Football Week 3 Takeaways

Biggest Takeaway in the SEC

Dan: Nick Fitzgerald is one of the most underrated players in college football.

Jason: Ed Orgeron is a phenomenal recruiter. That’s where the sentence ends. He is not a good coach.

Zach: Butch Jones needs to be fired immediately as he will never lead Tennessee to an SEC East Championship.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the Big 10

Dan: Purdue vs Michigan will determine if either of these teams for real.

Jason: I was wrong preseason… It is a 2 team race for the Big Ten. Penn State and Ohio State.

Zach: Michigan’s quarterback struggles and failure to convert in the Red Zone will have them on the outside looking in.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the Pac 12

Dan: 13 carries, 184 yards, and 2 touchdowns normally is a good enough performance to get a win, but I guess Bryce Love just can’t do it all for The Cardinal.

Jason: Darnold is the best pro prospect we’ve seen since Jameis.

Zach: Josh Rosen is not nearly enough for UCLA to legitimately compete in the Pac 12.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the ACC (+Notre Dame)

Dan: If Notre Dame can figure out how to throw the ball and get EQ involved, then they will be dangerous.

Jason: Lamar Jackson is a good passer but a GREAT runner. That’s his strength and weakness

Zach: Clemson is far and away the best ACC team and the ACC’s only real threat to make the College Football Playoff.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the Big 12

Dan: Oklahoma State has the best passing attack in the nation. Mason Rudolph is on the rise not just in the Heisman race but with his draft stock also.

Jason: Tom Herman is still the right guy for this job.. it’s a process. Remember that Longhorn fans.

Zach: Texas is almost back…or was it a fluke? We will see throughout the next four weeks.

 

Player of the Week

Dan: Collin Johnson

Jason: Sam Darnold

Zach: Mason Rudolph

 

Surprise Player of the Week

Dan: Shaun Crawford

Jason: Sam Ehlinger

Zach: Nic Shimonek

 

Bold Prediction for the Season

Dan: Clemson misses out on the playoff by losing to NC State and Virginia Tech/Miami in the ACC Title.

Jason: Kevin Sumlin is fired mid season by the Aggies. Then joins his alma mater and is the DC For the Purdue Boilermakers

Zach: Michigan finishes 9-3 in the regular season.
