    Re: Who are your "Top 6" after Week 2?

    As of now I rank us #4

    Clemson
    Georgia
    LSU
    Alabama
    Oklahoma
    Ohio State

    Until we develop a running game I see three teams I'd put ahead of us.
    We have a good passing game, but we are one dimensional without a running game.
    I've said it several times... Our OL isn't plowing the road, and our RB aren't crashing thru holes. I loved the hard running we got from big Henry, but so does the NFL.
    I loved the speed and shiftiness we got from Jacobs, but so does the NFL.

    Without a good rushing game I don't see us getting where I want us to go.

    Dude, read the thread. You interjected your opinion about what I typed. You called me out directly. I was responding accordingly. If you picked them second then I obviously wasn’t talking to or about you. But you chose to share your thoughts. I responded to your post.

    Facts totally straight.

    I'm sticking to my "After Week 2" ranking based on lack of a threat so far at running the ball and not enough pass rush on two weak opponents. After this week if we can push USCe around on the field, it may change!

Just look at the Clemson pick the score and good lord they were horrible when some were picking a close game. They don’t understand the idea of “just for fun”.
    I always thought that discussion boards were a place for people to converse and share their opinions. Some will agree, some will not, but nothing is accomplished by insulting people because their opinion is not the same as your's. Those that are labeled Eeyores take the brunt of those who believe Alabama cannot lose, or that Alabama cannot win by an astronomical score. I consider myself and some others as "realists", meaning Alabama should win, but every game will not be a walkover like Duke and NMSU. Finally, IMO, there is no need to get worked up over something so silly as a football game.

    1) Clemson - WRs continue to bail out Lawerence, we will see how long that lasts
    2) Alabama- We gotta clean up few things before we truly can be dangerous team to play against.
    3) LSU- Not buying the hype yet, but for this week they belong here.
    4) Oklahoma - Probably should be top 3 team... ask again in few weeks
    5) ND- Overrated
    6)Ohio State- Not sold on them but could be a top 4 team after this weekend.
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    Clemson is still the team to beat.
    And Alabama is the other team that must lose before being moved. As much of a concern as some say the running game is, I'd say that even using a subpar run game, in it's current form and results, takes pressure off the passing game. Defenses must account for it.
    Oklahoma is lights out on offense, but competition is still to be decided.
    LSU, tested and playing good. They are legit on both sides of the ball. Forget what you saw on defense the other night; Texas is that good on offense.
    Georgia is playing great, but hasn't been tested, and more will be known once they have played someone capable of being on the field with them.
    Ohio State is who they are. They could lose, but it won't be to Michigan. Maryland is the threat in the Big 10.

    Notre Dame gets no recourse from me. They have proven they can play within the weak part of the ACC year after year, and beat an occasional Big 10 team, but can't play with anyone at the top of the CFP pyramid. Not even competitive. So, I don't rank them in the top 10 really. Auburn is better and would beat them. Florida would beat them. Texas would be beat them, and even Texas A&M would do the same. A 5th best team in the SEC would beat them.

    Excellent post IMO...i had similar thoughts but you put it in words better than i could have!

    2) Alabama - Very fluid. I'm concerned about the OL and if they don't get better this spot will change.

    3) L8U - On preseason based paper they have the best/most impressive win. Their Offense looks vastly improved

    4) Ohio State - I've watched them and Fields has seamlessly filled the role of his QB predecessors running tOSU offense.

    5) Oklahoma - If their Defense wasn't still a burning dumpster I'd rank them #3. Jalen, the RB's, and WR's are clicking.

    6) Georgia - Jmho but I don't think they are as good as last year or the year before. Still they are VERY Talented.

    Re: Who are your "Top 6" after Week 2?

    i agree that our run game needs to improve, but a short passing game (which our is great) is very similar to a good run game except that it does not eat up the clock...our pass rush does need to improve and is it possible that we have not shown all of our Defensive looks yet because of the competition we've played...?

    It eats up the clock when your QB is 80% or better on completion percentages....

    Re: Who are your "Top 6" after Week 2?

    I am starting to think that the WR's bailing out Lawerence is the norm not luck...they have done it for 17 games now...13 of them being starts for TLaw. I do think overall we have the best WR group in the nation but their receivers are not better than ours...there's are DIFFERENT! They are physical monsters...all 6'4" or 6'5"...huge, strong, great leapers, long arms and fast (not elite speed) and so strong...i do have some inside intel with clemson because of 30 year relationships in college football and i've been told this is just what they do and it has and i think will continue to work...

    Your honor...relevance? That's a great write up on your thoughts about Clemson's WR group...Top 6?... or just waxing poetic?

    The top 6 teams should be pretty unanimous (you can argue over order) and they're probably the 6 teams with a realistic shot at the playoffs.

    Alabama
    Clemson
    LSU
    Georgia
    Oklahoma
    Ohio State

    Folks, there may be a realistic shot at 3 SEC teams in the playoffs...

    Edit: I guess I forgot about Notre Dame but if/when they lose to Georgia in a few weeks it'll be over for them.
