College Football Opening Week
Alabama, Georgia & Ohio St Set Pace

The first full week of college football entertained fans over Labor Day weekend and did not disappoint with a number of exciting national games. You need new roster sheets with the annual turnover of starters, plus the transfer rules which allow record number of player movement within Division 1 level. It makes for another season of highly contested matchups with weekly debates for the #1 ranking until the CFP title game in mid-January 2023.

Coaches also change loyalties with former ND head coach Brian Kelly moving to the LSU Bayou Bengals. The Tigers got into an uphill battle with Florida State and seemed to finally catch up with a last-second TD only to watch the extra point blocked to end the game. It was a major disappointment for Kelly in his SEC debut with the young and very talented Tigers failing to finish with big mistakes at critical moments.

Notre Dame begin a new era with head coach Marcus Freeman after a successful 12 year run with Brian Kelly who set a new career record for program victories. Freeman faced Ohio St in his debut and the Irish played the Buckeyes tough until faltering in a 21-10 loss. The Irish failed to score in the 2nd half and struggled to gain control of field position at any point of the game.

The traditional ‘Backyard Brawl’ between Pittsburgh and West Virginia finally returned after an 11-year absence due to conference schedules and ties. The ‘Brawl’ did not fail to live up to its long reputation as a bitter rivalry with the Panthers and Mountaineers going blow for blow before Pittsburgh won on a late drive 37-31. The two clubs scored 49 points over the second half in a wild exchange reminiscent of past matchups. Arguably the best game of the Holiday weekend.

Head coach Lincoln Riley shifted his alliances from Oklahoma to Southern Cal. While at Oklahoma, Riley guided the Sooners to three playoff appearances in five seasons with a 55-10 overall record. He hopes to revive the downtrodden Trojan program which has won only 22 games over the past four seasons. He started USC’s revival, smashing Rice in their opener. Oklahoma transfer QB Caleb Williams was Riley’s top recruit this offseason and they hope he will direct them in pursuit of the Pac-12 title. They make their Pac-12 debut this week at Stanford.

Both SEC finalists from last year’s national championship game, Alabama and Georgia won mismatches in blowouts. They do not play during the 2022 regular season, but certainly could meet in the conference title game or final four where the SEC seems to earn two seats annually.

Penn State faced Big Ten rival Purdue in West Lafayette in an unrated competitive matchup. QB Sean Clifford amended an earlier pick six with an 80-yard two-minute drive for the winning TD for a 35-31 victory with just seconds remaining. The Nittany Lions get a favorable early schedule until key contests from mid-October. Those games with Michigan, Minnesota and Ohio State in succession will determine any pursuit of a Big Ten title.

Last but not least. Rutgers U won their opener at Boston College 22-21 in their most impressive early season victory in years. They hope to build on this momentum in their next two games vs Wagner and Temple before the Big Ten meat grinder portion of their schedule, starting with Iowa on Sept 24th.

Senior Bowl 2022 – Defense Shines in Fine All-Star Classic

Senior Bowl 2022

The 2022 Reese’s Senior Bowl game produced one of the better classics in recent years. In a game that was dominated by the pass rush, the National team beat the American team, 20-10. The New York Jets coaching staff directed the victory over a squad led by the Detroit Lions.

Draft Insiders’ February Newsletter will be out this week. It will have an extensive section on each All-Star game plus new Top 125 Prospects and Two Round Mock Draft

Pitt QB Kenny Pickett showed a hot hand with a perfect 6-of-6 passing for 89 yards and a TD pass to Baylor’s Abram Smith. Cincinnati QB Desmond Ridder threw a pair of TD passes to tight ends, Trey McBride and Jake Ferguson on 4 of 5 passing. He also showed fine running skills. Liberty QB Malik Willis rushed for a game-high 54 yards on just four carries. He had a fine week passing, but only average during the game.

The National squad overcame 14 penalties by putting strong pressure on the American team QBs.  They registered 8 sacks with an additional five pressures.

This was the second year the All-Star classic was held at Hancock Whitney Stadium on the campus of the University of South Alabama.




CFP Championship – Bama vs Bulldogs in Classic Title Matchup

College Football Playoff National Championship
Bama vs Bulldogs in Classic Title Matchup

The 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship game is set for Lucas Stadium in Indianapolis Indiana. It’s a rare rematch of the SEC title game between Alabama and Georgia just four weeks ago. Bama had a dominant title game winning 41-24 with the score no indication of the matchup. The final features #1 vs #2 with both clubs 13-1. Georgia was undefeated entering the SEC title game and is quietly looking for revenge for the disappointing performance. Each team had an impressive Semi-final win, Bama vs Cincinnati 27-6 and Georgia 34-11 over Michigan. Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young outclassed the Bulldogs QB Stetson Bennett in the title game and had Georgia trailing from early in the contest. Young gives the Tide the trump card that has spelled the difference in big matchups.

The college football season comes down to the Crimson Tide and Bulldogs squaring off in the College Football Playoff National Championship presented by AT&T (Monday, 8 p.m. ET, ESPN).

The eighth final of the College Football Playoff will truly represent the top two teams. The Tide is seeking their 7th national championship in the past 13 seasons and their second back to back title. The Bulldogs are seeking their first since 1980. Georgia HC Kirby Smart hopes to break a winless streak (0-4) against his former boss, Alabama coach Nick Saban. Georgia lost to Bama in the 2018 Championship game after leading at halftime 13-0. Bama behind Tuo Tagovailoa spearheaded the comeback in overtime with a thrilling 41 yard TD pass to another Bama Heisman Trophy winner wideout DeVonta Smith.

It will be Alabama’s 6th appearance in the national final in the past seven years, including last year’s title-winning contest. The Tide has won the last seven meetings between the teams under legendary coach Nick Saban. Tide rolls behind the magic of QB Bryce Young.

Prediction: Alabama 27 – Georgia 13




It’s All SEC for National Title – Alabama vs Georgia

It’s All SEC for National Title
Alabama and Georgia Impress in Semi-final Matchups

Both SEC teams won their Semi-final games to earn the CFP national championship on January 10th.

Alabama and Georgia had strong wins in last Friday’s semi-finals. Bama methodically defeated Cincinnati 27-6 in the Cotton Bowl to retain their #1 ranking entering the title game. Georgia was just as impressive drilling Michigan in the Orange Bowl 34-11.

They will meet in a rematch of the 2021 SEC title game where Bama smashed the Bulldogs perfect season with a 41-24 victory. The score does not reflect the fact that the Tide dominated from the opening kickoff and the final looks closer than the actual contest. Alabama has won seven straight against Georgia, including that overtime triumph in the CFP title game, and three SEC championship game victories, the most recent coming Dec. 4.

The 2022 title game has all the makings of a Classic close matchup despite the SEC title game lopsided game. Georgia spent most of the season as the #1 team, while Alabama ranked high though rarely dominated after midseason.
