Your thoughts on Michigan vs Alabama. My thoughts? Nothing would surprise me!!

I could see either team winning in a blowout. I could see either team winning by a field goal in the last 5 seconds! I could see any possible outcome in between these two outcomes.

Over the last 20 years you would have lost big time betting against Saban so it will be an interesting game.

    I agree that this is a hard one to call. I was hoping Michigan would get to play almost anyone else but Alabama, but it is what it is. Stats say Michigan has the edge on defense and the quarterbacks are about equal but sometimes when it comes down to the wire, stats aren't worth a hill of beans. It's gonna be whoever wants it the most I guess. Out of loyalty I'll pick Michigan to win by single digits, but I wouldn't put any money on it! Go Blue! Bob

    I lost my * on Georgia beating them and they have improved overall. SOOO I will throw good money after bad that the Wolverines will prevail and guarantee a Crimson win!

    Should be a good game. Bama has really played a lot better in the second half of the season and I wouldn't bet against Saban.

    I am an SEC fan but Alabama should not even be there. FSU got hosed.

    That being said, gotta stay with the BIG 10+ and say GO BLUE

    For me its a toss up and the game could go any way way, it could be be a tight low scoring game or it could be a blow out. One of college footballs tough to pick games of all time.

    I never bet against Bama. They have faltered but seriously they could have lost 3 games but they almost always find a way to win even if they should lose. Michigan vs Tide is about which Bama team shows up

    I am a Florida guy, any Florida team; UF, UM or FSU and FSU going 13-0 should have earned them a shot except losing the guy that gave them a prayer meant they were no longer competitive. I wish that were not the case but I expect Georgia to destroy them

    As one that was hoping for FSU to take it all losing the QB was more than they could make up. It was the correct call to exclude them

    Wulfmann, as unpopular as your take on FSU is, I have to agree. The selection committee main focus isn't won/loss record or strength of schedule as many think it should be. It's main focus is who are the best teams on selection Sunday.

    It's too late for me, save yourself.

    It's still hard to reconcile that the loss of one injured player...........essentially negates the 13-0 record of a Power Five conference team.

    All that......because a committee "thinks" of better match ups????🤯

    At this point........why even keep score??🤔😖

    On the bright side......

    My Oklahoma A&M Cowboys beat the Texas A&M Aggies.....31 to 23 in yesterday's Texas Bowl.😊🤠

    It all about the $$$$$.

    ESPN owns exclusive rights to playoff broadcasts. So with an SEC team in the playoffs instead of an ACC team viewership will be higher and ESPN will charge advertiser's more $$ for air time. ESPN totally controlled the College Playoff Committees decision to move a one loss Alabama over an undefeated Florida State.

    NCAA football is beginning to look more and more like professional wrestling everyday

    I cant wait to see Coach Saban doing that commercial with the white duck.

    They will do anything for money. College football guys don't embarass easily.
