    What about Michigan? I feel like Michigan is better than Cincinnati.

    On a neutral it's probably mich -3. Not much better a team probably. Documented here that I predicted the Wolverines to have a great year btw.

    Check back in 6 weeks when they've gone at mich st, at penn state, and hosted ohio state.

    I think they go 2-1 or 1-2 in that stretch and if it's 2-1 the loss better not be vs ohio state or they'll be out of the playoff race because ohio state would go 11-1 and head to B1G title game over mich.

    Michigan is not better than Cincinnati. Michigan cant throw the ball and even though they are undefeated they lack playmakers.
    Ridder would be the best player on the field.

    Really? GA is #1 but loses to Ala in a real close game, and OK and Michigan go undefeated. You really think they would pick Cincy over those 4?

    SoS will show it's true colors.
    Not a Cincy hater, true they beat a good but overrated Irish squad, what else?
    They beat a crappy Hoosier team, a crappy MAC team, Murray State who has no business playing any FBS team.
    Their only real test (besides ND, a test they passed) is SMU.

    Michigan plays in a division (east) in the Big Ten that's STACKED.
    Four top ten teams in that division alone.

    This is my take.
    This years Wolverines is to football what Magic Johnson's 1979 Sparty team was to college hoops, and Cincy is to football what Bird's 1979 Indiana State team was. Two terrific teams, one in a powerhouse conference, one was not.

    This is my take Part II

    Michigan might be worth a fade Saturday if you believe in the "looking ahead to the next week's game against Sparty letdown angle"

    No. Northwestern is just terrible. It would be a miracle if they score more than 10 points Saturday.

    I know, I know, I was just throwing the 'look ahead" angle out there.
    Michigan had better TCB, I got that Sparty game next weekend circled.
    Hope they don't change that start time for the networks, I got next Saturday planned around football already, nine days out.

    This. N'Western - who has surprisingly good and competitive in the B1G under Coach Fitz - is simply Gawd Awful this year. they are not clicking in any of the 3 phases right now.

    i am just concerned because Cincy is out for blood every game and might try to win by 35.

    they know they have blow everyone out in order to have a chance.

    but again, if forced, i go Navy +27.5 because they run that option, they're at home, and they will spin clock and shorten the game w/ the running.

    What we have here on SBR is a bunch of kids with ADD! Nobody remembers earlier in 2021 when UC had Georgia beat and they escaped with a long fg. UC is pretty good! They didn't look great today, but they beat ND and they beat Indiana a helluva lot easier then Sparty did. Sparty had like 54 yards at half vs Indiana but got lucky with a pick-6.

    For some reason I do think UC was better last year. I don't know how many seniors they lost

    Gundy has went for FGs twice on 4th/short. Last one was 4th/foot and he misses a fg? I'm on Ok St +7 pretty big today. I think they can run all day on OU and might run the table if they get this one

    i hate spencer sanders

    i tuned into this game when oklahoma was up 21-17... iowa state took the lead and this spencer scrub couldn't do anything with 2 drives after going down

    everything is a bad read or a quick throw hoping his WR does the work for him after... 3rd and 5 with under 2 min left

    they RAN the ball to shorten 4th down because the coaches don't even trust him

    4th and 2 game on the line they do another stupid quick pass where you have to hope the other guys block people and the guy can get the yards after the catch on the line of scrimmage or behind it

    Iowa State wins good thing taking the points

    be careful betting Okie State going forward... Sanders is a bum that's my whole point with this post. every game going forward they are capable of losing outright as well

    …and keeping with the theme 'Bama's got to go, right? They LOST to a 2-loss Texas A&M, who lost to a 3-loss Miss. St., who lost to a 4-loss Memphis…

    That's why they play the games. College kids, any given day. Fuk the committee, and opinions in general for that matter. Let 'em play.

    Cincy still at #2 in both polls.

    Know why?

    Because the media and coaches know that having to go to Annapolis and play the triple option team on just one week prep is USUALLY a tough game.

    The voters were not going to punish them for a close hard fought win.

    If some of u folks actually knew what "body of work" meant vs "one game sample" and "recency effect" meant, u might win more wagers than u lose instead of pissing money away annually.

    Cincy haters were waiting for a game like this so they could pounce, but the Bearcats are subject to human emotion like any other team. It's tough to get up for every single game, especially an academy school who's going to shorten the game and come for your legs on every down. The outcome of the game was never really in doubt and that's what matters.

    I hope Cinci can win out and find a way in the playoffs.
    When the committee comes out with their week 1 rankings after next weeks games I doubt Cinci will be #2.
    They have made it clear thru the years it is who they think the 4 best teams are, not the 4 most deserving.
    Barring upsets it probably will be 1. Georgia 2. Ohio State 3. Alabama 4. Cincinnati 5. Michigan/ Mich State winner.6. Oklahoma.

    I don't think anyone should really punish Cincy for playing like shit against Navy. Lots of powerhouse teams have trouble playing those triple option teams, even with a bye week to prepare. If they win out, they deserve a shot... even if they get the crap kicked out of them

    Alabama lost to a 2 loss, unranked Texas A&M team and Bama already back at #3

    SEC bias is alive and well

    With that said, Bama is prolly the 2nd best team in the country

    This is it! The last weekend before the first CFP rankings come out. Even if Cincy blows out Tulane today, the Mich/Mich St winner, OK, and Ala will leap frog over Cincy in the rankings w/ Georgia being #1, ofc.

    Not necessarily. It's still a beauty contest so it depends on how the mich v mich state winner looks. Mich state not very "pretty".

    Oklahoma? Cincy should be ranked higher imo based on pure results week in and week out.

    We'll find out soon. Let's see how these top teams all look today. It will matter a lot.

    Common opponents:

    Oklahoma beat Tulane by 5 pts in norman. Yes it was rattler back then at qb not williams. Sooner D gave up 35 pts that day.

    Cincinnati just beat Tulane by 19 at tulane.

    The committee has got to discuss these types of things when comparing top teams in the discussion.
