Kayvon Thibodeax,the number one player in the ESPN 100 chose Oregon over Alabama,Florida,and Florida State.The defensive end’s mom really likes head coach Mario Cristobal,and Thibodeaux wants to take over the defense in Eugene.

12/12 Correct

Initial picks for the 2018-19 New Year’s Six Bowls (Other than the CFP)

Peach Bowl-Florida vs. Michigan
Michigan has the defense to shut down a not very good Florida offense.Michigan should win a low scoring game but Florida will make it tough.Predicted Score:Michigan 13,Florida 10

Fiesta Bowl-UCF vs. LSU
I don’t think UCF will be able to stop LSU’s offense but will LSU’s defense be able to stop UCF’s offense.Predicted Score:LSU 45,UCF 31

Rose Bowl-Washington vs. Ohio State
Two great offenses will battle for the first time in the Rose Bowl.Washington will get a game-winning interception and get the Huskies a Rose Bowl win.Predicted Score:Washington 31,Ohio State 27

Sugar Bowl-Texas vs. Georgia
Georgia should have the upper hand in this game but I think Texas will have the lead in this game at one point.Georgia,using their stingy defense should get a hard fought win in Arlington.Predicted Score:Georgia 24,Texas 20

Mike McCarthy fired by the Green Bay Packers

After a 4-7-1 start to the season,and following a 20-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals this afternoon,Mike McCarthy was fired by the Green Bay Packers.Offensive Coordinator Joe Philobin will step in as an interim coach.My opinion:this was the right move for Green Bay so they can get a contender in Green Bay while Aaron Rodgers is still playing.

College Football Playoff 2018-19 Initial Game Predictions

Orange Bowl (Miami,FL)
1.Alabama 35
4.Oklahoma 31

This is the first REAL defense Heisman front runner and Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray has seen.We will see how Kyler Murray will do against an SEC defense,but with Tua at full strength,Alabama isn’t losing.

Cotton Bowl (Arlington,TX)
2.Clemson 34
3.Notre Dame 30

Notre Dame should take an early lead but seniors on the defensive side for Clemson will lead Clemson to a four point win.

My FINAL 2018-19 College Football Playoff and New Year’s Six Predictions

The top four teams are going to be announced at around Noon ET so here are my final predictions.

CFP
1.Alabama
4.Oklahoma

2.Clemson
3.Notre Dame

I would pick Georgia to be in the fourth spot because they do deserve another shot versus Alabama but Texas deserves a shot in the Sugar Bowl,too.

Rose Bowl:Washington (Pac-12 First Bid) vs. Ohio State (Big 10 First Bid)
Sugar Bowl:Texas (Big 12 First Bid) vs. Georgia (SEC First Bid)
Fiesta Bowl:Washington State (Pac-12 First Bid) vs. Michigan (Big 10 Second Bid)
Peach Bowl:UCF (American First Bid) vs. Florida (SEC Second Bid)

Who is still wondering about getting into the playoff?

Definitley In
Alabama
Clemson
Notre Dame

Wondering (Good Shot)
Oklahoma-After avenging a regular season loss to Texas,Oklahoma should be the team in because of winning their conference championship.
Ohio State-Northwestern kept it close until the final ten minutes of the game,and their resume is not as good as Oklahoma’s.
Georgia-Georgia should’ve beat Alabama and in my opinion,after Oklahoma,they have the best chance to land the number four spot.

Wondering (Maybe not so good of a chance)
Central Florida-UCF came back in the American Championship to get twenty-five wins in a row but it won’t be enough.

Michigan-Since Clemson,Oklahoma,and Ohio State all didn’t lose they won’t be getting in the CFP after an 11-1 season.
