Want to Make the College Football Playoff? Lay Off the Cream Puffs

Want to Make the College Football Playoff? Lay Off the Cream Puffs

Will Alabama win a national championship?

Head coach Nick Saban of the Alabama Crimson Tide looks on during the game against the Tennessee Volunteers at Neyland Stadium on October 15, 2016 in Knoxville, Tennessee. Stanford will at least 10 because it has done exactly that in six of the last seven seasons.

You don't have to sell All-American FSU cornerback Tarvarus McFadden on the talents of Alabama receiver Calvin Ridley.

Alabama football teams relish pressure but the source of that pressure going into 2017 is the chip on Tide shoulders for failing to repeat as a national champion. When push comes to shove, we are betting the Alabama Crimson Tide to win the game straight up. In addition their to September 3rd matchup against Alabama, the Seminoles also take on Miami and North Carolina State in the season's first month.

What former mid-major head coach will have the best season of a Power Five team?

With a full year of experience to build off, the Florida State quarterback should be even better in 2017. Charlie Strong recruited solid talent but couldn't win with it, so he was sacked and replaced by Tom Herman. Given the Longhorns' resources, it shouldn't be long before he has Texas relevant nationally once again.

Last year's 52-6 romp over then-No.

OK, perhaps I'm overstating things. It's hard to imagine another 'Bama back winning so soon after the 1,943-yard season Derrick Henry had while winning the Heisman in 2015.

Lets start with number four: The Oklahoma State Cowboys. The Wolfpack has the returning starters and the track record of beating highly ranked Seminole teams in the past to narrowly upset top ranked Florida State.

Last year, Talking Points' top bet to make the playoffs, Clemson at plus-155, not only cashed but went on to win the championship. The weekend closes with an ACC-SEC game that carries some importance with two programs desperate for a breakout season of success. This game should decide the Big XII title and a potential playoff berth. College football (7-10:30 p.m., Fox Sports): If the weather permits, Jackson State will travel to take on TCU. Any chance we'll see two quarterbacks?

On the two quarterbacks, offensively this is Jalen's team.

Last year, many felt that Florida State would be the team to beat, but in reality, this is their year. The game is scheduled for a 7 p.m. CT kickoff on ABC with Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, Maria Taylor and Tom Rinaldi on the call. As usual, the college football season will be absolutely insane.

Harrison's high school is just eight miles away from Florida State's Doak Campbell Stadium. It plays Auburn at Louisville and at Virginia Tech before October 1.

WR D.J. Moore, Jr., Maryland, Imhotep Charter School - He has caught a pass in 21 straight games and led the Terps with 637 receiving yards previous year.

The roller coaster that is the college football season kicks off Saturday.

RB D'Andre Swift, Fr., Georgia, St. Joseph's Prep - He has impressed in training camp and will look for playing time behind two seniors.

On the other side, Wyoming can certainly pass the ball, as they will be led by Heisman Trophy candidate Josh Allen, who has the National Football League abuzz with his high ceiling at the QB position. Now, Bryant is eager to make his own mark, staring in the Tigers season-opener against Kent State on Saturday.

Thanks for your continued support.

. "And that's a guy that you have to respect, we have to respect a guy like that with feet like that". The response, in a word, is heartening.

We knew it had to end eventually. "If you don't push the pocket in the middle, the quarterback can step up and throw and see the field and do whatever he wants and attack the middle of the field". Our role as an independent, fact-based news organization has never been clearer.
