re: The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2 - JB Bama
They should have had an equalizer where there was an advantage to having more players. One year they had to dig out a chest and with more players it was much easier for one team. Something like that. Team US got rid of Wes, Johnny and Jordan so their only Alpha left was Paulie. I can't imagine ...

re: Debunking some Playoff Metrics - JB Bama
[quote]Yep. A Bama fan wanting losses to be in the top 3 playoff criteria. Imagine that. I guess you still think the Tide should get in. [/quote] So to be clear what do you think is more important than losses? Don't be obtuse talk in metrics....

re: Debunking some Playoff Metrics - JB Bama
I think a good rule of thumb is it takes 2 good wins to cancel out a bad loss, I wish the committee would basically acknowledge this as a standard. If you lose to an unranked team it should basically be 1.5 losses. A win over a top 10 team is 1.5 wins. Georgia has a big fat ugly loss but they...

re: Debunking some Playoff Metrics - JB Bama
Yeah I don't think you can objectively state that. Penn State has a solid resume. *If LSU beats Georgia, it is obvious LSU has the 2 best wins vs. Georgia in the Georgia Dome and @ Bama (with Tua) Right now without that Georgia win I'm okay with OSU #1. I would say vs. Auburn or Vs. Florid...

[quote]We'll have to agree to disagree.[/quote] I think we're on the same page honestly. I think we can all predict what the CFP is going to do because we've seen it in the past, but they are inconsistent. Why did a 1 loss Ohio State go to the CFP over a 2 loss Penn State that beat them head to...

re: Debunking some Playoff Metrics - JB Bama
Ohio State has a clean sheet with wins over #8 at home in a convincing win, #10 at home with a solid win, and a convincing win at #14 Michigan. The win over Cincinnati is no better than a win over Texas or Texas A&M honestly you would expect any top 10 team to win those games convincingly. LSU h...

re: Debunking some Playoff Metrics - JB Bama
Utah doesn't have any proof that they belong in the top 5. They have a loss outside of the top 20 and their best win is by 5 against an unranked Washington team. Based on losing to USC and with no quality win to suggest otherwise one would assume they would lose to any of the top 5. What would...

Debunking some Playoff Metrics - JB Bama
With only 12 data points we have to be more specific and intentional in how we analyze a win and a loss. Stop using "top 25 win" or "3 loss team". There's too much range, you can't compare a win over a top 5 with a win over #24. Texas A&M lost 5 games but they were ALL to top 10 teams. This d...

re: Do you expect any fringe juniors back? - JB Bama
I think Mack Wilson is a great example of why you should come back. He went in the 5th round and he signed 2.8 mil over 4 years. Christian Miller went 4th round and signed a 3.2 mil contract over 4 years. Rashaan Evans who went 22nd had a 11.5 mil guaranteed contract over 4 years. He's h...

re: The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2 - JB Bama
There is nothing on the line in the actual challenges so that's problem 1, problem 2 is there's no benefit to winning an elimination. I think one of my favorite seasons was the Island where the only way to compete for the final was to win an elimination. I also liked the year individuals built...

re: If the rehab is what we're hearing it is what do you think about Tua using a redshirt... - JB Bama
Nobody thought CJ Moseley had a career ending hip injury. Why does everyone think Tua's is so bad? CJ Moseley went 1st round with this same injury, I don't understand the uncertainty. (I was way off on La'el no idea why I thought he went in the 3rd round)....

re: 12-1 LSU vs 12-1 Oregon compared to 11-1 Alabama vs 12-1 Oregon - JB Bama
12-1 LSU is locked in 0% chance they get left out. The playoff committee is all about narratives. The narrative on Oklahoma is they can't compete with an elite team because they have a suspect defense. This was quite obvious against Kansas State, Iowa State, and now Baylor. LSU has proven they a...

re: *Official* CFB Week 12 betting picks ATS - JB Bama
I found a good ATS picker I'll share his top 5 Thursday. Not sure why you are making 40+ picks, and the picks don't seem to follow any logic to them. You took Vandy, Miss St, but faded Missouri? ...

"Let's just assume he goes in the 4th round". No, there's literally no evidence in the history of the draft to suggest he would fall that far. A certain LSU lineman was a first round talent and got caught in legal trouble the day of the draft there was an assumption he could be charged with ...

Prior to the NFL Combine, Mosley underwent surgery to repair a labrum issue after dislocating his hip. He attended the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, but was not able to participate in running drills as he was still recovering.[21] Mosley completed the vertical jump, short shuttle, three-cone...

Tua is gone in the first 20 picks I'll gladly take a bet with someone on that. I'd be shocked if he's not top 10. He's a generational talent, look at what the Bears got out of Trubisky with the 3rd overall pick you think they wouldn't trade their soul for Tua right now? CJ Moseley had a hip i...
