2020-2021 cbhsports College Football 12/4-12/6 Preview

CFP Top 6

1.Alabama Next Game: at.LSU

2.Notre Dame Next Game: Syracuse

3.Clemson Next Game: at.Virginia Tech

4.Ohio State Next Game: at.Michigan State

5.Texas A&M Next Game: at.22.Auburn

6.Florida Next Game: at.Tennessee

My Top 6

1.Alabama Next Game: at.LSU

2.Ohio State Next Game: at.Michigan State

3.Notre Dame Next Game: Syracuse

4.Clemson Next Game: at.Virginia Tech

5.Texas A&M Next Game: at.22.Auburn

6.Florida Next Game: at.Tennessee

Key games this weekend (Rankings based off of CFP Poll)

5.Texas A&M at. 22.Auburn (Saturday, 12 PM ET, ESPN)

All A&M has to do is keep winning and hope that Florida wins the SEC Championship in 2 weeks. Then, I think they are automatically in the CFP. Projected Score: Texas A&M 28, Auburn 17

12.Indiana at. 16.Wisconsin (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, ABC)

Wisconsin QB Graham Mertz through 5 TDs in their opening season win over Illinois. After Mertz and others in the Badgers’ program tested positive, the program and its games were put on hold for weeks, meaning they missed games that they could not make up. When they returned to action, they got an easy win versus an underachieving Michigan team, then a loss to overachieving Northwestern. Wisconsin’s Big Ten Championship hopes are on the line as they face Indiana, a team who has only lost to highly ranked Ohio State. This one will be fun from Camp Randall Stadium. Projected Score: Indiana 49, Wisconsin 45

6.Florida at. Tennessee (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, CBS)

Florida is on a crash course for an SEC Championship date with Alabama. Florida QB Kyle Trask and the rest of the gators should have no problems with Tennessee at Neyland Stadium. Projected Score: Florida 59, Tennessee 24

13.BYU at. 18.Coastal Carolina (Saturday, 5:30 PM ET, ESPNU)

ESPN College Gameday heads to Conway, South Carolina and the campus of Coastal Carolina for the first time ever. Coastal has dominated the Sun Belt this season on its way to a perfect 9-0 season. For BYU, they have also gone perfect in what many experts call a pretty easy schedule. It should be a fun one in Conway. Projected Score: Coastal Carolina 49, BYU 42

3.Clemson at. Virginia Tech (Saturday, 7:30 PM ET, ABC)

With Clemson’s crushing defeat of a pretty decent Pittsburgh team a week ago (in Trevor Lawrence’s return), no one should expect anything but Clemson to go into Lane Stadium on Saturday and handle Virginia Tech. But another loss for the tigers means, that they are (likely) fully out of the college football playoff conversation. Projected Score: Clemson 49, Virginia Tech 28

Predicting the remaining three games on Arkansas’ football schedule

I’m sorry everyone for a prolonged break. I have been dealing with some things in my own life and wanted to take a little break. Still, be patient as I have exams coming up. My Arkansas men’s basketball preview will be posted at some point this upcoming week.

11/21
LSU

Many COVID-19 tests suggest that these teams come into this game thin. Both of these teams need a win for their bowl consideration, so “The Battle for the Golden Boot” will be fun. Arkansas gets out to an early lead and holds on with a late interception.

Projected Score:Arkansas 31, LSU 27

Projected Record: 4-4

11/28
at.Missouri

Arkansas defensive coordinator (Missouri graduate and former Missouri head coach) Barry Odom makes his homecoming as the hogs face Missouri. Arkansas makes a defensive statement in the fourth quarter and wins 35-21.

Projected Score:Arkansas 35, Missouri 21

Projected Record: 5-4

12/5
Alabama

Sam Pittman has the biggest challenge of his first season as head coach in the final weekend of Arkansas’ regular season. Nick Saban and Alabama will be the number one team in the College Football Playoff rankings barring an upset. An upset by the Razorbacks here would blow up the college football world.

Projected Score:Alabama 59, Arkansas 35

Final Projected Record: 5-5

6.LSU 0-0 (0-0) Next Game: Mississippi State (September 26)

Key games this weekend (Rankings based off of AP Poll)

Syracuse at. 18.North Carolina (Saturday, 12 PM ET, ACCN)

Led by Quarterback Sam Howell, North Carolina has sky high expectations in 2020. In this game, I believe UNC’s offense will obliterate Syracuse’s defense and get off to a hot 1-0 start in conference play. Projected Score: North Carolina 56, Syracuse 17

Duke at. 10.Notre Dame (Saturday, 2:30 PM ET, NBC)

In Notre Dame’s first game in the ACC, they get an inexperienced Duke team. QB Ian Book and the Irish’s stingy defense should carry them this game and more, setting up a huge match up with Clemson come November 7. Projected Score: Notre Dame 28, Duke 17

Missouri State at. 5.Oklahoma (Saturday, 7 PM ET, )

Tulsa at. 15.Oklahoma Sate (Saturday, 7:30 PM ET, )

1.Clemson at. Wake Forest (Saturday, 7:30 PM ET, ABC)

UTEP at. Texas (Saturday, 8 PM ET, LHN)

Hey guys… (Must read)

Hello everyone. Hope your week has gone well. In my transition to Arkansas and SEC only content I have become demotivated to put up a blog post three times a week. Thus, I will be taking a break through Sunday September 20. The only post that I believe will go up during my time off will be the 2020-2021 cbhsports College Football Week 1 Preview (I will likely change titles of these posts from week to the actual dates due to the ACC beginning two weeks before the Big 12 and SEC). I hope you stick with me through this break but to get a refresh and to get some new creative ideas in this blog, I think it is what is best for me and the blog moving forward.

Hogs’ Isaiah Joe changes mind, enters 2020 draft

FOOTBALL:

The NCAA Board of Governors has agreed to-season or not-give seniors playing fall sports an extra year of eligibility. Football players will get to stay a year more if they choose, which will not count towards the 85 scholarship limit next season.

Senior QB Feleipe Franks, RB Rakeem Boyd, OL Myron Cunningham have been named to the Senior Bowl watch list.

BASKETBALL:

The biggest news of last week was when former All-SEC Guard Isaiah Joe announced he had changed his decision to return to Arkansas, and he will enter the 2020 NBA Draft. Joe changed his decision due to the unprecedented fall sports seasons coming in 2020.

NBA Draft Lottery And My Top 3

Last night was the NBA Draft Lottery:

  1. Minnesota Timberwolves
  2. Golden State Warriors
  3. Charlotte Hornets
  4. Chicago Bulls
  5. Cleveland Cavaliers
  6. Atlanta Hawks
  7. Detroit Pistons
  8. New York Knicks
  9. Washington Wizards
  10. Phoenix Suns
  11. San Antonio Spurs
  12. Sacramento Kings
  13. New Orleans
  14. Boston from Memphis

Minnesota has DLo and KAT but a good pick up would most likely be Anthony Edwards, rated number one by many, and he’d move right in to the Shooting Guard position which is needed in Minnesota. It would be stupid not to take him. The Timberwolves already have a big man and a guy that can shoot. They are in need of a SG who is dominant everywhere. Anthony Edwards could fill their starting 2guard and good on pick and roll plays from a good PG(DLO) and a great Center(Karl Anthony-Towns) Anthony Edwards to seems great on plays where KAT can set a screen at the top of the key and DLO gets it to Edwards who then can get to the bucket. If he feels he can’t score, you’d have DLO open in the corner and we know he can shoot. It’d be a fun team to watch.

Golden State has a great back court, the Splash Brothers are a great shooting squad. Jonathan Wasserman put in his mock draft that they should draft James Wiseman. Though he’d be a great asset to have at big man, I feel the Warriors should draft Lamelo Ball. It’d be a lighskin squad, and with Curry’s age, Lamelo can fit in at point guard after Curry leaves. At the moment though, with Lamelo’s height at 6’8, he is the size of a small forward, so with a little more weight on him, he could play the role with point guard skills. Like a point forward. Andrew Wiggins is taking a spot up at small forward so Lamelo, if drafted by the Warriors, might have to come off the bench. I doubt the Warriors would play small ball moving Draymond to Center with Lamelo at Power Forward(doesn’t have the skills rn to adapt), Andrew Wiggins at Small Forward, and the Splash Bros in the back court. Maybe the team could adapt, but either way, I still think GSW should draft Lamelo.

The Charlotte Hornets are in no need of of a Point Guard with the up and coming Devonte Graham, what they do need though is a big man. The Hornets have Bismack Biyombo, Cody Zeller, and Willy Hernangomez. Not really big name stars. That’s why the Hornets should draft James Wiseman, because he is dominant, tall, and just goated at basketball.

Special Mention:

The Knicks- You know I gotta clown the knicks. The worst team, always getting left out. Got the 3rd and picked a player, not a bust, but not producing like Ja and Zion, and not as well as players drafted behind him, and they aren’t even starting. This time the knicks got the 8th pick. Just like 2017, when they Drafted Frank Ntilikina 8th overall(Kinda a bust), in 2018, their best player yet was drafted 2nd round. YES!!! There best player was drafted SECOND ROUND!!!(Mitchell Robinson) In 2018, they also had the 9th overall pick and drafted Kevin Knox, not a bust, but not doing what a good player does for being drafted 8th. The team is young, but young players probably not at the top with other players at their age. Honestly, the knicks my pick a trash player, maybe they get a steal. I honestly feel bad for them but they’re the clown of the NBA. To any knicks fans, please, don’t hurt yourself.

Where would you want an NBA team?

If you were to choose where an NBA team was to move where would you choose? Comment where and the top location, I will write the pros and cons of having a team there(in my opinion)

Archie Goodwin

Archie Goodwin, Ratiopharm Ulm(Ulm, Germany) Archie Goodwin is my number one favorite for a few reasons: He went to the high school in my city(Sylvan Hills High School in Sherwood, Arkansas) and he knew my uncle in Middle School. I also remember Archie coming to talk to my elementary school. A negative on Archie is he played at Kentucky. It would have been nice to see a player like Archie play for the home state team at Arkansas. Archie played a few years in the G-League, and in the regular NBA. After 111 games in the G-League, he racked up a average of 18.5 points per game.

Game by game preview

9/26
Georgia

Whoever is starting at QB for Georgia, whether it be Jamie Newman or JT Daniels, will crush the young Arkansas secondary. In Sam Pittman’s games against his former team (he was the offensive line coach at Georgia), expect a fun game but a game that Arkansas will come out thinking they have nothing to lose.

Projected Score: Georgia 49, Arkansas 24

Projected Record: 0-1

10/3
at.Mississippi State

Less than half of the cow bells are going to be ringing in Starkville. Two new SEC head coaches face off in this one, Pittman versus Leach. It should be a fun, close game. Two of the top running backs in the SEC Rakeem Boyd and Kylin Hill face off.

Projected Score: Mississippi State 35, Arkansas 31

Projected Record: 0-2

10/10
at.Auburn

Arkansas faces off against two former coaches in this one, former Arkansas offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn (Auburn head coach), and a guy Arkansas fans have in the rearview mirror, former Arkansas head coach Chad Morris (Auburn offensive coordinator). This game is a tossup because of Auburn’s loss of home field advantage due to the loss of many fans, but Auburn’s talent wins out here.

Projected Score: Auburn 56, Arkansas 17

Projected Record: 0-3

10/17
Ole Miss

Under normal circumstances, with a packed Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, I would give Sam Pittman his first win in Fayetteville. But due to the lack of fans, I think this one turns into a shootout, where two new SEC head coaches are looking for their first win at their respective new schools (Pittman and Kiffin).

Projected Score: Arkansas 51, Ole Miss 49

Projected Record:1-3

10/24
OPEN

10/31
at.Texas A&M

Arkansas heads down to College Station on Halloween looking for their first win against the Aggies in eight years. Due to COVID-19, what the fans call “The Southwest Classic” was moved from AT&T Stadium to College Station, as it is supposed to Texas A&M’s home game. The Aggies will make a return trip to Fayetteville in 2021 before returning to AT&T Stadium in 2022. That’s besides the point, as Jimbo Fisher brings in one of the most talented Aggie teams into this season, making it one difficult for Sam Pittman and his team

Projected Score: Texas A&M 38, Arkansas 34

Projected Record: 1-4

11/7
Tennessee

Many SEC experts are picking Tennessee to finish third behind Georgia and Florida. The way Jeremy Pruitt turned this Tennessee squad around mid-season last season, was incredible. Tennessee’s talent should scare the Razorbacks definitely but this is a game Arkansas could win.

Projected Score: Tennessee 24, Arkansas 17

Projected Record:1-5

11/14
at.Florida

Former Florida QB Feleipe Franks returns to the Swamp to face one of the most talented defenses in the nation. Florida QB Kyle Trask is being looked at by some as an All-SEC First Team QB, so the offense for the Gators may not be up to par with its defense but it’s pretty close.

Projected Score: Florida 42, Arkansas 21

Projected Record:1-6

11/21
LSU

If the reigning champs head into Fayetteville with likely only one or two blemishes, they will be fighting for a New Year’s six spot. Arkansas will be well exempt from making a bowl game, so with nothing to lose at home for Arkansas, I see this as an ugly game.

Projected Score:LSU 17, Arkansas 14

Projected Record: 1-7

11/28
at.Missouri

According to my projection, Arkansas came so close against LSU, so Sam Pittman and the crew are looking for a win here. Arkansas Defensive Coordinator Barry Odom will have his homecoming as he returns to Columbia for the first time since he was fired as Missouri’s head coach. Two new head coaches (Sam Pittman and Eli Drinkwitz) will go at it.

Projected Score:Arkansas 28, Missouri 21

Projected Record: 2-7

12/5
Alabama

Sam Pittman has likely the biggest challenge of his first season as head coach in the final weekend of Arkansas’ regular season. Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide will likely be a top four team in the College Football Playoff rankings so an upset by the Razorbacks here would blow up the college football world.

Projected Score:Alabama 59, Arkansas 35

Final Projected Record: 2-8

Feleipe Franks named frontrunner for QB1 entering fall camp

NOTE:News is from previous week as all posts are scheduled.

FOOTBALL:

Arkansas Head Coach Sam Pittman and AD Hunter Yuracheck were the first to support the #WeWanttoPlay movement, that was started by Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence.

First year Arkansas Offensive Coordinator Kendall Briles told reporters on Friday that it was “his (Feleipe Franks’) job to lose”. While fall camp begins Monday August 17, Franks has seemingly asserted himself above Sophomore KJ Jefferson and Freshman Malik Hornsby.

The revised SEC football schedule for the 2020-2021 season will come out soon, so I will have a post about that soon.

BASKETBALL:
Heavily recruited 2021 wing Chance Moore announced his commitment to become the first Razorback pledge in Eric Musselman’s second class in Fayetteville. Moore chose the hogs over Alabama and LSU.

JUCO Forward Akol Mawein announced his committment to Arkansas just two days after Chance Moore announced his pledge to go to Fayetteville. The 6’9 big man averaged 13.5 points per game and 5 rebounds at Navarro College in Texas. Moore will have two years of eligibility left when he enrolls for the 2021-2022 season.
