re: Extra snaps for Tua /= extra yards and TDs for Tua - Crimson Legend
[quote]I'm tired of seeing this comparison with the Oklahoma QB. It would be unprecedented to award someone the Heisman trophy with the assumption that he would have better numbers with an equal amount of snaps.[/quote] Ok. When we go up by 3 scores on you in the title game and pull Tua late in t...

re: The committee will have a hard time explaining 4-6 - Crimson Legend
[quote]But 5 and 6 don’t matter so...[/quote] Since 4-6 did not have a team that was "unequivocally" better than the other two, then you go to the criteria they use, the first of which is supposed to be conference champions. In the end, no matter what is said and how they slice it, it comes do...

re: The committee will have a hard time explaining 4-6 - Crimson Legend
He just explained it, and it was a clear contradiction. He said there was no team unequivocally better, which means you go to the one loss conference champ...yet they moved Ohio State to 6th. There is no consistency....

The committee will have a hard time explaining 4-6 - Crimson Legend
If you emphasize conference championships, or you emphasize fewer losses, then you put OU and tOSU 4 and 5. If you push those two things aside and go with who has been more dominant and wins the "eye test" for the team that looks like the best, you put Georgia 4th and the other two 5 and 6. I can'...

re: Is Tua overrated? - Crimson Legend
[quote]Bama played an unreal game against LSU. But if you zero in on Tua's stats, they were fairly pedestrian: He was 25/42 (59.5%) with 295 Yards Passing, 2 TD and 1 INT. Averaged 7.02 yards/attempt. Decent, but nothing spectacular.[/quote] Fair, but stats don't show everything. Sometime...

re: The SECG worked out perfectly for Saban - Crimson Legend
[quote]He didn’t want his secondary exposed like the were. The playoffs will have QBs that can use that model as an example. That is why he is trying to get ND in the first round[/quote] The "model" of getting heavy pressure while still getting fantastic coverage from the secondary, and while Tua...

re: Is Tua overrated? - Crimson Legend
When given time, and he's healthy, Tua is the best QB in the country. Georgia did a fantastic job putting more pressure on him than he has seen before, and while his injury wasn't enough to keep him off the field, it did make some difference in his ability to escape pressure. Let's see how he doe...

re: Just for the fun of it, imagine if this was the way they picked the 4 playoff teams - Crimson Legend
[quote]I think it would be opposite. Bama would want Clemson to play Georgia and Clemson would want Alabama to play Oklahoma/Ohio st [/quote] You're right. For some reason I was letting Clemson pick first. Assuming Bama is seeded #1, you are right, Bama would pick Georgia to face Clemson. The...

re: To be the best you have to beat the best - Crimson Legend
To beat the best you have to actually play the best. When you play a schedule of pansies, you don't have room to talk shite to a team that stood toe to toe with the #1 team in the country. Clemson may be the best team, but until you play a team with a pulse, we don't know that. Nice win over Pitt....

Just for the fun of it, imagine if this was the way they picked the 4 playoff teams - Crimson Legend
You pick the top 6 teams, then you choose who is seeded #1 and #2. Then, each of the top two teams gets to choose the opponent of the other one. Who does Clemson pick for Alabama? Who does Bama pick for Clemson? In that "thought experiment", I'm pretty sure Clemson chooses UGA to play Bama and...
