Yes. I know some of you kids don’t care. I’m trying to teach you something. If we find enough interests & passions in life; we are not overwhelmed. I know football does not matter. I could have played at big schools. I chose not to. My favorite team is Army. They are never going to win another title. But that’s fine. I enjoy watching the strategy. The amazing plays. The passion of the fans. The will to overcome. I like watching different teams. It’s fun to see some teams that just always seem to win. It’s fun to see a little team pull the upset. I love that some powerhouses are always winning. I’m old. As a boy Notre Dame; Oklahoma, Ohio State; Alabama; Texas, & Michigan were always winning. Some of them still are. I love that. It proves if a school keeps fighting hard they can keep winning. But I equally love that some tiny schools never win; but keep fighting anyways. I was a great athlete. But I’m disabled. They said I couldn’t be great. Yet I was. I would pick the weakest nerdiest kid for my team. Then we would win together. I would spend hours teaching a little person a basic play or move. Then I’d dominate a game. Get a big lead. Then feed them the ball. If they made it great. If not great. It didn’t hurt a thing. I loved to see some kid score the winning points. Make a catch. Bunt a ball & get on base. I showed them everyone can be a hero. But then I encouraged them to find what they were good at. I was designed by God to run up & down a football field. To easily jack home runs. You probably were not. But if you search hard enough you’ll find with some effort there’s something you can be really good at. My wife came from a family of engineers. Wanted to be one. I steered her towards her strengths. She ended up making more money than me. Good for her. Back to the sec. I like to predict the best teams in each conference every year. I’m usually right. The media are bandwagons & push teams on their networks. I use logic. Last year I said LSU for the entire country. Maybe Clemson. Was easy. Each returned coaching & talent. This year I said Clemson for it all. Oh State. But the others are harder than usual. Pandemic. So I guessed Oklahoma State for the big 12. That seemed stupid then; but looks better now. I felt the OK head coach struggles to develop QBs. If your head coach is always chasing transfer QBs; that says he doesn’t believe he can develop a QB. Hello Oklahoma; Georgia; Auburn, & others. If you can’t develop your own QB it may be hard to win it all. But LSU won that way. So it can work. So I said OK had a freshman finally. They’d lose some. Texas has the same HC & QB who always lose some. So who will fill that void? Oklahoma State seemed most likely. They may reach the playoffs: but will lose. There are no great teams in the big 12 this year. PAC 12. Oregon has best HC & talent. They should easily win that terrible conference. But their schedule is so short & easy, that it would be corrupt to put them in the playoffs. That said; they go undefeated & many will try to put them in. I have a sense that Washington is the one team that may upset them & win the PAC instead. ACC. Clemson brought back a complete team; best QB, second best HC. They have an old experienced staff no one else wants. So stability. They should easily win the conference & are the best bet to win it all. The Irish was my pick to be the best independent. Go undefeated & they were in. But the pandemic put them in the ACC for a season. They could upset the tigers, & end up in the playoffs. Probably won’t happen. The big 10 was easy. The second most experienced; talented, complete team behind Clemson is Ohio State. Returning staff. Second best QB. By far best big team. But now the pandemic. Michigan could sneak in even with the HC who can’t win big games. Maybe even Pedophile State U. Group of 5. Not enough talent or tough enough schedule to deserve it. Maybe BYU. But no one else. That said; the best of them can win any one game. But play a real schedule & theyd fall apart. You must realize every player at UCF was thought of as less than the 5th best player in any position at Clemson. The media will whine for expansion & inclusion; because we pay them to act moronic. But real fans know they don’t deserve to play for the title. I thought it was cute when UCF tried to crown themselves. Ever watch Friends? Monica & Ross made a troll doll trophy for backyard football. Maybe UCF could play the Friends cast for that trophy. But who’s best in the sec? The experts will say Alabama. Well; the last two years I didn’t pick them. Why? Greatest coach ever. But they have three big issues. The NFL fleeces their under class men every draft. Other programs fleece their assistants every year. They play in the sec which is like the mini NFL. Yes they finally kept a DC; because he was terrible last year. Tua had a major flaw. He’s got small joints. He will hold onto the ball till the last second & take big hits while trying to both run & throw at awkward angles. I’m a martial artist. That gets joints hurt. I predicted he’d play hurt & cause them to lose big games each of the last two years. I was right. I felt their backup QB was average at best. The pandemic meant they couldn’t school up a freshman. Granted; the new starter is much better than I predicted. He may end up in the NFL; but it’s a long season. Their freshman can’t take a snap without fumbling. They lost a lot off the defense to the NFK. Same for LSU. Their secondary is mostly green. With no off season to prepare. They will get lit up I predicted; & they have. The front 7 is better as I predicted. But they have to try to compensate for the young back 4. That O line looks like an NFL line. I thought they’d have one NFL back for sure; I see two. Two NFL WRs; I see 3. But that secondary will get them beat I predicted. So they were the media’s pick as they are every single year. But I’m usually better than the media because I don’t listen to them. Instead I understand football & am not paid to wave flags. I understand they are the Yankees of cfb. But they still have a bad defense. They gave up over 600 yds to an average Ole Miss with a good I minded HC. Last year they got torched by LSUs great team & Auburns average QB. I don’t expect them to win the Nati for that same reason. Remember Clemson smoking them in the playoffs? The media is still beating that drum. Don’t fall for it. Georgia has the most complete sec team top to bottom. Returned a lot of experience. Kept their high dollar staff. Experienced HC who wins (& loses) big games. But what about QB? When you are scrambling to grab not one; but two transfer QBs; you are saying not only can you not recruit QBs; or develop them, but you can’t even trust your getting the right transfer QB. So I worry they have 3 backup QBs & no starter. Well; Ohio State won a Nati like that. Georgia has the best defense in football this year. Experience. Depth. O line. Kickers. Running backs. I’m just not sure about the QB. I think they are the best in the sec this year. The Alabama QB has me wondering if I picked wrong. But that D is bad. Alabama May our score then once. But they will have to do it twice to reach the playoffs. I think Georgia will win the Sec; but not the Nati. I predicted; & still believe, you will see Clemson beat Oh St in the finals. Georgia & whomever lose in the first round. I felt that before this season started. I still believe it. But it’s a long crazy season. That’s what makes cfb fun. I still believe my Army team will beat Navy & Air Force. We look like a top 15 team so far. Forget UCF; let Army in the playoffs. We will beat anybody in the first round. Huh rah.
