One more look at the week that was in college football

Final Four

1. Alabama-The Tide looked like it was headed out to sea in the first half at Ole Miss, but in the end  Bama did what Bama generally does, win, if not comfortably. Tough win on the road, in tough conference gives Bama extra credit.

2.  Ohio State—Since Ohio State almost never loses in the Big Ten and since Urban Meyer is the best college football coach this side of Nick Saban and since this win was in Norman and since Ohio State looked more than ready for prime time, the Buckeyes get the bump to just below penthouse level.

3.  Michigan–Everyone is entitled to one win in which the phrase “they were lucky to win.”’ is used. Colorado deserved to win in the Big House on Saturday. It  didn’t. Michigan tried to give the game away. It didn’t. That cost the Wolverines our No. 1 vote, but they are still playing The Victors in Ann Arbor. The rest of this article is available to subscribers only – to become a subscriber click here.
