Georgia, Not Only The Lone Certain Playoffs Entrant, But (-220) To Join The Fellow State Braves AS Title Winners

November 28, 2021

Only the top ranked, (12-0) Georgia Bulldogs, who are looking to join their fellow state, Braves, in winning a second Georgia based crown (they won led by then freshman and now Trump backing, Herschel Walker in ’80, the year “another bargain,” Ronald Wilson Reagan, ascended to the U.S. presidency), are assured a spot, in the upcoming 4 team college football ‘offs.

Unlike the Braves, who struggled and had at best a slightly better than average regular season as the low wins total of 88 will attest, Georgia has been dominant going (12-0) and I would say, at least (9-3), maybe (10-2) vs the spread. They are (-220)/11 to 5 favorites to title.

Yesterday, in the roughly 15 minutes past noon start in snowy Ann Arbor (the pro wrestler Bobo Brazil was from Benton Harbor, Michigan), Hassan Haskins scored 5 touchdowns, the first player to achieve that in the long great Mich/Ohio State rivalry, as (bet from 8) the touchdown underdog, (11-1) Michigan team won (42-27) vs Ohio State, the team at least on paper, that had the best chance at topping Georgia, which I state early on, is far from unbeatable.

Thus it is almost certain that Ohio State is out of title contention, while Michigan, in a “be careful” game vs Iowa for the Big Ten crown, would secure a playoff spot, likely the second highest, if near touchdown “fave” Georgia beats Alabama, probably the second if ‘Bama, a truly fortunate survivor at Auburn yesterday, upsets the “Dawgs,” in the CBS SEC title tilt next Saturday around 4 Eastern Time (How’s that for a promo?), if it prevails vs the Hawkeyes. I will project “Mich” to be a TD favorite. They are 10 plus points favorites, as it turns out.

Next, I cite (12-0) Cincinnati, seeking to be the first non Power 5 Conference team to make the ‘offs, seemingly would do so with a win vs a good Houston team. They opened as 10 point favorites in the tilt.

Aforementioned Alabama, once a “cover machine,” but this year a tightrope walking, no cover team, almost certainly needs to beat Georgia, to get in the ‘offs, in a bid to defend their title.

Oklahoma State, one would think and I guess hope (it is the usual some dinero, if it is Notre Dame and one day I will “grow up” and root for it, in the meantime take Cincy and Mich for a very small profit) is next in line, if it wins the Big 12 title tilt as roughly 6 point “faves” vs Baylor, and say Alabama, if not Cincy or Michigan loses.

Notre Dame, it would seem, but remember they are Notre Dame (one reason the late Beano, who could afford it and I, who really can not, do what we did/do), need losses by 2 of the following four teams, Michigan, Cincinnati, Alabama and Oklahoma State to again make the ‘offs, where I believe they would be a dangerous opponent for any team, including currently top ranked Georgia. Am I just paranoid? Surely credit Brian Kelly (a transaction this week involved a namesake and remember he coached Cincinnati to an undefeated “reg,” I believe) with a good job coaching Notre Dame.

Who knows? Sadly, without cashing big dogs, Michigan and spread covering Auburn, I still care.
