Are Oregon and Ohio State locks to make the CFP in 2024? | Always College Football

  • čas přidán 20. 02. 2024
  • Oregon, Washington, USC and UCLA will make their way to the Big Ten - who will be most prepared to make the CFP from that group? Plus, Ohio State feels like a lock for the CFP - can Michigan (with a new head coach get back), is Penn State ready to take the next step? Is there a surprise team in Wisconsin, Nebraska or Iowa? Greg McElroy breaks it all down, plus, why is Texas still getting mad at “horns down”?

    18:35 Michigan under Moore will still be good - can they get back to the CFP?
    25:25 Penn State should win 10 games - that’s enough for the CFP right?
    30:25 Can USC win in the B1G & make the CFP?
    33:40 Can Iowa make a serious threat to the CFP in 2024?
    37:00 A few other B1G teams to keep an eye on

    we haven’t finished outside of the top 12 since fluke 2011 for obvious reasons.. before that 2004. We are playoff locks with the team we bring back. As for Oregon they’ll go 10-2 at worst i think 11-1/12-0 if they can beat us at home which will be a great game. They could slip up at Michigan or Wisconsin maybe

ALL OF THE REMAING peices off the nations best pass defense if anything have an UPGRADE. Plus they are deep with depth. The DL returns everyone except Hall. This defense is going to be a PROBLEM for opposing offenses. If you are going to beat OSU you better have a top 5 defense because youre going to have to win games like Missouri did 14-3 and With the changes Day has made with the OFFENSE, you aint holding OSU to 3

    Takes a lot of effort for Greg to say Ohio state. However I lack respect for anyone who can’t even acknowledge Michigan was cheating for three years and hurt college football. Say it how it is, Michigan right now is a dumpster fire. There top four players are looking in the portal right now. Might even wait till spring.

    Neither team is a lock for the playoff. Oregon is going to have to adjust to the week to week grind of the BIG. The games in late October-mid November are going to be a shock. Expect them to suffer some important injuries as well. It's just how it goes.
    As far as Ohio St, they are not more talented this year compared to the last, and the assumption is that they will somehow make it work with Will Howard. He is going to have to adjust to the conference where there are elite defenses and the expectation of being "The guy". Ohio St will also be learning a new offensive system and that has a higher likelihood of being a step back compared to lighting the world on fire. They have great skill players coming in but the ones they currently have are overrated. I would say a few in the last two years were border line busts. Both teams are going to have to show they can be tough because I don't see it getting easier for either.
    The only thing helping both teams is that Michigan likely falls to middle of the pack in 2024.

      I’m tired of the narrative of “week to week grind” in the big 10 the power 5 middle of the road teams are about the same but the big 10 also has some horrible teams.. the pac 12 was hard to go undefeated bc of the different play styles which means more adjustments and on top of that all the elite QB play but the big 10 every team tries to play power football and play the same so it’ll be almost easier for Oregon to adjust.. Oregon is a physical team w big 10 SEC size/talent up front on both sides w Pac 12 speed at skill positions… Oregons first year in the conf their schedule is pretty easy I expect no drop off esp with how Oregon plays unranked opponents they don’t play w food it’s almost always a blowout… Ohio St and Michigan are the toughest games on their schedule.. Wisconsin in November is no slouch either but still that’s the same Wisconsin team that took a L to Washington St I think Oregon will be fine.. the big 10 has really been just Ohio St and Michigan and the rest have been irrelevant

      I am not saying that Oregon won't have a shot. What I am saying is that the league is just different. It's a better league than the Pac 12. They have just as much skill and the bodies are just bigger. The coaches play to a formula and style that puts games into stalemates. Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Illinois grind games down and before you know it, you only had 3 possessions in a half, and the game is close. There are no weeks off, and the environments are far more difficult to play in than the PAC12. I too believe that Oregon is built well for the BIG and that they will ultimately be fine but there will be an adjustment. They are not just going to walk in and dominate. @@cruzkoward5093

    • @vincentrivera9408

      Ohio St's back ups have fallen off. I am acknowledging the portal additions and signing class but the guys you have left in the receiving room and rb room are not exactly evoking confidence (The QB room isn't too hot either). Mulitple guys left for the portal (Wr, RB, TE), and Ebuka is a good second option but possibly the most overhyped player in the country. I know his stats but they are inflated by constantly being around other elite WR's that freed him up for 1 on 1s. With Fleming gone, he has to be that guy and unbiased tOSU fans know he isn't. The running back situation has also been disappointing. Henderson is overhyped. When healthy, he is just a straight line runner with bad vision. Will tOSU beat the Purdues and Northwesterns? Yeah. But those upper middle of the pack teams will be licking their lips. The easy schedules they constantly receive is not going to save them anymore. @@JoeyAugustine

Therefore, all of the teams should make the CFP. From now on, you should only discuss who can or cannot make the semifinals.
