A snooze fest of a weekend as four of the top 5 teams took off in preparation for the final month of the regular season. Next week should be fun though as we get Alabama vs. LSU, Penn State vs. Minnesota and other big games.

For now, let’s get into the Post-Week 10 Overreactions, Tier List, Heisman Favorites and more!

Overreactions

MULTIPLE BYE WEEKS SUCK! – I’m not going to argue that for TV, these multiple bye weeks lead to bad weekends sitting on the couch. I will say that it allowed me to go do much more yesterday than I typically do on a Saturday. The only big game was Florida vs. Georgia and that’s about it.

However, I am fine with the multiple byes for getting players healthy and leading to big games in the future. I just wish there was some sort of NFL pre-season scheduling to make sure potential big match-ups were spread out a little bit. November 9 is going to be a huge weekend compared to November 2, so maybe shift games around. Of course we didn’t think Minnesota would be undefeated when the season started, but there are just too many top teams taking off this week.

CLEMSON DOESN’T BELONG IN THE FIRST PLAYOFF TOP FOUR! – I’m not going to argue that comment, but the problem gets to the same question we ask every year – is it the “best four” or the most deserving four” teams that get in?

Clemson is this year’s 2014 FSU team – no respect, but you can’t leave them out when they are undefeated. However, they have to remain undefeated to make it in. One loss bumps them behind many other one loss teams.


Playoff Rankings

1. LSU
2. Ohio State
3. Alabama
4. Clemson

5. Penn State
6. Oregon
7. Georgia
8. Oklahoma
9. Baylor
10. Utah

If Penn State beats Minnesota, I’d move them to fourth, and depending on how the game goes, I could see the loser of Alabama/LSU still being top 4 maybe.


Heisman Favorites

1. QB Jalen Hurts (Oklahoma)
2. QB Joe Burrow (LSU)
3. QB Tua Tagovailoa (Alabama)
4. RB Chuba Hubbard (Oklahoma State)
5. DE Chase Young (Ohio State)
