1) Clemson facing serious questions

The Tigers, who have been a staple of the college playoffs, are already eliminated, and for the first time in a decade, they are a non-factor in the playoff race. The defense is stout, but the offense is a complete mess. So is this just a blip on the radar? Or is it something more? I think we are looking at a tiny blip on the radar and the Tigers will be back in contention by next year, but the exciting thing will be how Dabo Swinney handles the loss and whether he can get this team back on track this season. Not too long ago, there was a point that people were asking if he was better than Nick Saban? Now the question is different at Clemson.

2) Sam Pittman doesn’t think it takes five years to build a program

When Coach Pittman arrived at Arkansas, the Razorback’s program was a mess, and now just one short year later, the program is in the running for an SEC title. The Razorbacks are proving that it doesn’t take five years to build a program. The Razorbacks have now beaten the Longhorns and the Aggies. With the Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide on the horizon, the Razorbacks have a chance to pull off maybe the most remarkable turnaround in College Football history.

3) Notre Dame vs. Cincinnati will be a game for the ages

The Irish were undefeated but had struggled up to the 4th quarter when they exploded and blew out a solid Wisconsin Badgers team. Cincinnati is coming off a win at Indiana and is rated as a top 10 team by most experts. Brian Kelly vs. his old team makes for an exciting week of questions for Coach Kelly as he did abandon his team for Notre Dame right before the biggest game in Bearcats history. Trust me, that hatred still exists with bearcats fans, and a Bearcat win here gets a little revenge for those fans, and it would put Cincinnati firmly in the conversation for a college playoff berth.

4) Georgia Teck is back?

Maybe, Head Coach Geoff Collins has had a strange season so far with a loss to Northern Illinois followed by a near upset against Clemson. Then yesterday, it got more expansive as the Yellow Jackets smacked a top 25 team in North Carolina. So finally, in what looks to be a wide-open ACC, the Yellow Jackets have a shot at making some noise.

5) Minnesota gets embarrassed, P.J. Fleck to USC? I doubt it

Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck was being talked about in connection with the USC job, and yesterday may have taken him out. Bowling Green is not just bad; they are horrible winning just one of their last 13 games against FBS competition. The Gophers were held to 59 passing yards against Bowling Green. It’s going to be a long season from here on out for Minnesota.

6) The ACC is turning into a joke

First, the canes get embarrassed by Bama, then Clemson has fallen off, North Carolina is not what they were expected to be. Finally, we are left with undefeated Boston College and Wake Forest. Although at the same time, both teams are deserving of being in the top 25, neither is near being in title contention.
