The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / 7 Grueling Truth’s we learned from week 10 of the 2021 College Football Season

7 Grueling Truth’s we learned from week 10 of the 2021 College Football Season

Style points are essential?
Publish Date: 11/07/2021
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa
LINCOLN, NE - NOVEMBER 6: Quarterback C.J. Stroud #7 of the Ohio State Buckeyes drops back to pass against the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the first half at Memorial Stadium on November 6, 2021 in Lincoln, Nebraska. (Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)

1) Michigan State was highly overrated by the selection committee

The Spartans best win was a come from behind win over a slightly above average Michigan team. The Spartans lost to a Purdue team. That’s not terrible, but if you are the third-ranked team in the country, you should win that game. The bigger question should be how did the committee rank them that high?

2) Style points are essential for Cincinnati but not Alabama

For the third straight week, the Cincinnati Bearcats struggled with a team they should have beaten easily. During those same weeks, Alabama worked for three quarters with Tennessee, and on Saturday, they beat LSU 20-14. I am betting that style points will not affect Alabama’s ranking. The style points don’t hold a lot of water for me as all teams struggle from time to time in games they shouldn’t. The important thing should be to win the game. Remember, this LSU was down 12 players and is led by a coach that has already been fired, and the great Crimson Tide struggled with them.

3) Winning is hard unless you are Georgia

It seems like everybody struggles to win games. Will everybody not named Georgia as the Bulldogs keep dominating the competition. The Bulldogs won again 43-6, and for the arguing about the top 4, number one is undisputed.

4) Dan Mullen’s hot seat has ignited

On Saturday, the Gators are now 4-5 after a humiliating loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks 40-17. To make matters even worse, South Carolina went into the game averaging 20.9 points per game and started FCS transfer Jason Brown at quarterback — his first start in an FBS game.

5) Ohio State struggles to get by Nebraska

The Buckeyes had been rolling with easy wins over Indiana, Rutgers, and Akron, Nebraska was a much different story yesterday as the Buckeyes struggled with the Cornhuskers and threw in the rough win against Penn State it is easy to say that the Buckeyes are not clicking on all cylinders at the present moment.

6) The Committee will finally realize how hard it is to win

When the new rankings are revealed again on Tuesday, there’s a good chance the committee will understand how hard winning has become. Despite its loss to a (then-unranked) Texas A&M or its close games against Tennessee and Florida and LSU, it will benefit Alabama from the doubt. It will understand that Oregon, who lost to a Stanford team with an offense that’s so bad Utah beat them half to death, can’t blow out every opponent it faces. It will see Michigan and Ohio State and Texas A&M and Notre Dame and Michigan State and understand that escaping the grind of a season isn’t just about the quality of the teams you play but the accumulation of opportunities you face when anything — everything — can go wrong. They will look at Cincinnati and say that struggling to win games is not acceptable for them! The Cincinnati Bearcats have won 18 straight games in the regular season, and their only loss was at the very end of a bowl game against Georgia’s current number one team. The committee will say that was last year and previous years shouldn’t matter; if that was the case, how can Ohio State and Alabama, and Oregon rank above Cincinnati? The problem is legacy does matter here; I will guarantee you Alabama will not drop from number two unless they lose again. The rules are different for power conference teams. If Ohio State wins out against Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin, are those three teams good? The quick answer is they are slightly above-average teams, but the committee will act like they are significant wins. Cincinnati’s chances are slim to make the playoffs but remember it’s hard to win, and a lot of football is left to be played!

7) Washington coach about to be fired for player interaction

Washington coach Jimmy Lake is under fire for physical interaction with his player. That, in my opinion, is nothing at all. After the play with an Oregon player, the player was going at it, and coach Lake separated the players and smacked his hand on the player’s helmet, which should be no big deal. Since Washington wants to get rid of Lake, I think this will be the perfect time to blow this out of proportion to take the coach’s job. Football is a physical and emotional game, and the coach did not abuse the player; society has gotten so soft!
