    Alabama, Clemson, Michigan (even with four players opting out of the bowl game), LSU, Ohio State and Alabama over Clemson for the national championship.

    Wow was that a smoke show, Talk about blow outs.

    I did feel that both Clemson and ND tackled well. Clemson was just so much better.

    3-0 after three. Is Michigan the biggest choke show you have ever seen?

    3-0 so far. Pretty close on the Alabama score: 41-27 prediction vs. 45-34 actual. Got the margin of victory for Clemson exact: 27 points. I knew Florida would easily beat Michigan, but didn’t see the 41 points coming.

    Notre Dame is maybe one of the 10 best teams in the country. Yes, they were undefeated and thus deserved the shot, but the blowout loss was easy to see coming a mile away. I don’t think they choked. They’re just nowhere near Clemson’s level (or Georgia’s level, OU’s level, OSU’s level, etc).

    I’m watching LSU vs. UCF now. Both teams are scoring more than I expected so far.

    Well back down to Earth, I picked with my heart in lieu of my brain.I was hoping
    UCF would upset LSU. May have had a better shot if their #1 QB was playing. Of course LSU
    was without 7 starters also, I hate Ohio State so that was an easy pick. Georgia blows my mind.

    I’m stunned about Georgia. They SUCKED. Kudos to Texas for their effort and excellent play, but to me that game was about Georgia being flat and weak in the trenches.

    Edit 1-4-2019 I hate to go against Nick Saban, but I have
    to go with Clemson. I had originally picked Alabama over Clemson.
    I have to go with Clemson now 34 to 31. Maybe because Pitt plays
    in the ACC? Or just a hunch.

    I’ll be rooting for Clemson, but my head says Alabama.

    Never saw it coming, some comments by Saban
    really intrigues me. He felt uncomfortable leading up to
    game on how he could prepare for Clemson's WR's.
    That really bothers me going forward concerning Bama's Db's
    in the draft. Also you would think that Nick would have thought his DL
    could get home part of the time. Wow, careful evaluation must be done
    on these so called superstars.
