I wish some conferences set up a challenge weekend

So have these games playing
But I'd love say a Big XII-SEC challenge (the other 3 want an alliance? Cool, these 2 can team up)

So say it's Oklahoma State vs Baylor and Alabama vs Georgia

Could then do

Oklahoma vs Ole Miss
Iowa State vs Kentucky
Kansas State vs Texas A&M
West Virginia vs Arkansas
Texas vs Mississippi State
TCU vs Tennessee
Texas Tech vs Auburn
Kansas vs LSU

Some of those might happen in Bowl games with conference tie ins.
If the Sugar bowl wasnt a semi this season you would of gotten Alabama Vs the winner of the big12 [or loser if the winner somehow got into the playoffs]
You have teams that opt out of bowl games so doubt they would like to play meaningless games on championship weekend.

EDIT: sugar Bowl isnt a semi so you will likely get Big12 2 Vs SEC 2 unless they make the playoffs.

1. Georgia
2. Michigan
3. Alabama (score looks bad, but outgained them by 229 yards, and had 3 failed 4th down attempts)
4. Cincinnati
5. Oklahoma State (they're going to get positioned to jump in with a win over Baylor - This is going to be like 2014 where Ohio State jumped TCU/Baylor at the last second.)
6. Ohio State
7. Notre Dame
8. Baylor
9. Ole Miss
10. Oregon

I think Oregon will be above Baylor.

ND could of been a chance if they played in the ACC and were playing for a championship if Georgia, Michigan, Cinci and Baylor won next weekend. but because they dont its another year when they are out of mind [which is lucky because dont think they would of done anything in the playoffs anyway]

6. Ohio State

10. Oregon

I think this will be the line up.

Committee needs to keep Bama in the 2/3 match up to avoid back to back games against Georgia.

If they're desperate to keep them in (even with a close loss) you'd be needing to keep them holding their spot, not climbing with a loss.

Holly sh*t. LSU just poached Brian Kelly from Notre Dame.
I think he is a good coach but cant ever get his teams over the top and dont think that will chance. I think he will be out of the job in 5 years.

Now up to 23 FBS coaching changes.

Its an odd fit with LSU doubt it works out.

I was just thinking.
If I were the AD at Notre Dame and BYU
I'd be scheduling away games against Hawai'i every year just for the extra game.
You're irrelevant this week.

Why not play in Hawai'i every single season so you can exploit that rule which allows a 13th game to offset travel costs.
Not many teams take it. But iif you were those 2 schools, why not play it and then play each other this week.

Or going forward, you're Notre Dame. Sure. You're trading a P5 school for 2 G5 schools.
But take this week for example. You can play BYU as Catholics vs Mormons.
Or you can reignite your old Army rivalry.

Crazy year in College Football land both on and off the field. Seriously, Michigan beat Ohio State! Like that hasn't happened in 1000 years

Will college cash grabs lure NFL coaches?

Posted by Mike Florio on November 30, 2021, 11:51 AM EST

Maybe Mike Tomlin shouldn’t have said “never say never, but never” regarding the possibility of coaching at Southern Cal or any other college program.

Lincoln Riley has bolted Oklahoma for USC, thanks in large part to a compensation package that reportedly includes 24/7 use of a private jet for his family. Brian Kelly reportedly will make $15 million per year at LSU.

With college players now able to earn money from entities other than the schools for which they play, it becomes even easier to justify cramming more of the cash that doesn’t go to the players into the pockets of the coaches. And it’s already happening.

The question becomes if and when the NCAA arms race will attract NFL coaches. As the money goes up and up and up, it eventually becomes an issue. Either NFL teams will offer more money and greater security, or NFL coaches will opt for the 10-year, fully-guaranteed that makes them the de facto emperors of their university and, depending on the location of the school, the entire town.

There’s no harm in listening. That’s why Cardinal coach Kliff Kingsbury didn’t perform an agitated mic drop when asked about Oklahoma, didn’t rattle off names of other NFL coaches who haven’t been asked about vacant college jobs. It’s not an insult to be linked to a job at a college program; it’s leverage. Kingsbury won’t rule out Norman, Oklahoma because he wants more money from Bidwill, Michael. That’s why Kingsbury’s people leaked the Oklahoma interest to Schefty. And it’s why Kingsbury would be foolish to rule it out.

Or maybe he’s actually interested. Per discussions with multiple sources, whether and to what extent NFL head-coaching contracts allow a departure for a college job depends on the precise language used by a given team. Some deals allow the coach to leave for a college job. Others don’t.

A separate question becomes whether the NFL team would exercise its prerogative to block the move. Although the coach can’t be forced to stay on the job with his NFL team, he can be prevented (by court order, if need be) from coaching anywhere else. Some teams won’t want to force a coach to stay against his will. Some may be happy to be able to make a change without owing the former coach a buyout. Others won’t want to create a scenario in which contracts become not worth the paper they’re written on.

Regardless, the explosion in compensation for college football coaches inevitably will impact pro football. If NFL teams don’t pay more to coaches on the way in, coaches may be looking for a way out. And they may be getting a new range of options unrelated to other NFL teams.

Dawgs at 1, Michigan up to 2, Bama stay at 3 and Cinci at 4 and Okeydoke State at 5.

I think that Bama will still make it as a 2 loss team if they don't get slaughtered by Georgia. If the game is still live (1-2 possession game) in the 4th or late in the 3rd it will be enough for the CFP to put them in the 3 seed.

I'm worried for Cincinnati..... A one loss OSU with several recent ranked wins is the perfect excuse to tip out a Group of 5 team

Only way Bama stay is if they win. They are not putting Bama against Georgia in a semi after losing to them in the SEC championship game.
