CHAOS reigned supreme this weekend in College Football as No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4 ALL WENT DOWN — with Clemson, Michigan and Washington seeing their undefeated seasons end.
That’s the kind of weekend you dream about. And that perfectly manufactured Top 4 with Alabama, Clemson, Michigan and Washington? Put an M-80 under that thing and watch the world burn.
Because if you know ANYTHING about College Football, it’s that NOTHING goes according to plan. And thanks to an absolutely insane Saturday, we’re right back at Ground Zero — where nobody knows anything, except that Alabama is really good.
What a day. And the craziness got started early — when the nation’s longest home winning streak ended after Pitt kicker Chris Blewitt silenced Death Valley with this 48-yarder to take down Clemson 43-42.
Down goes 2! And then DOWN GOES NO. 3! Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan team failed their first big test of the season, unable to get out of Iowa alive as the Hawkeyes defense shut down the Wolverines offense, with baby-faced freshman kicker Keith Duncan playing the hero as TIME EXPIRED to win 14-13.
And finally, No. 4 Washington turned into a pumpkin as USC went into Seattle and ripped the Huskies, winning 26-13, with Sam Darnold outplaying Heisman candidate Jake Browning, who threw two interceptions to Adoree Jackson.
Two, Three and Four all go down. So do Eight and Nine, with Texas A&M and Auburn each losing close games. Guys – I know that Alabama looks unbeatable, but there are BETTER WAYS to avoid the Crimson Tide, you know that, right?
So good luck to the Playoff Committee. After two weeks of ham-and-egging your way through that weekly troll job, making waves for swapping in and out the 4 seed, this group needs to find THREE OTHER teams to put alongside Alabama in a final four that NOBODY has any clue about — and we’re in the middle of November.
Chaos. And it’s fantastic. What a tremendous Saturday with insane postseason implications.
