Alabama and Auburn won.
That can’t make up for the terrible loses and near loses to mediocre opponents.
SEC Missouri (lost also) closed the Wyoming lead to 37-31 in the final period on a 1-yard TD run by Tyler Badie and a 53-yard TD pass from Bryant to Nance. But Missouri turned the ball over on downs at the Wyoming 24-yard line with 29 seconds left on an incomplete pass from Bryant to Johnathon Johnson.
Apparently in the SEC it's a case of the HAVES and HAVE-NOTS.
Missouri's QB got drafted in the first rd.....went to Denver.
The rules are different in the PRO. The clock runs leaving Very few plays available if you try to make a comeback. You have to throw throw throw to have any chance. Clock runs a lot with no action going on, players standing around for minutes. Slow to unpile. It comes down to a few Seconds, yet they waste many minutes throughout.
Phantom penalties. Suddenly it is Holding? but no different than previous play.
Alabama didn't nearly lose to Duke. The 1st quarter was tied at 0-0, but after that the Crimson Tide was winning by a good margin.
auburn played #11 Oregon, so I'm not sure about the mediocre opponents.
And Michigan had more difficulty with Middle Tennessee State than Bama did with Duke.
I suspected that officials were trying to make calls to keep the point-spread close.
Most college QBs have problems reading Defenses.....and they rarely figure out how to stop blitzes with audibles.
Although I do not understand how Bama can recruit the very best at every position, except kicker. Missed 2 field goals yesterday. Although the kickoffs were stellar! I don't recall any that were not out of the end zone. Nice to take away the opportunity for the other team to score running one back.
Guess again...born & raised Steeler nation...best franchise in NFL history....6 rings, none tainted...
