The season is officially over. Let's talk about the next one
conference winners for next year:
power ranking of Saban's Bama teams, tweaked slightly from the last thread:
Ya the '12 championship was prol my fave
pic related; honey badger gettin punked
Nebraska will contend one day maybe?
>aOSU in charge of beating backup QBs at home
2010 was the most loaded talent wise of all of Alabama's teams under Saban, dude.
that team was fucking stacked. literally every team on our schedule that year had a bye week before us. dropped 3 that year after winning a national title the year before with the same group.
>scUM in charge of beating tOSU
>MSU in charge of not being a meme
>B1Ge in charge of not being a shitfest
Who is going to contest the Buckeyes path to the CFP?
I actually think the defense has a chance to be better despite the losses up front. Vayante will be key.
Finely was actually playing bretty good before he broke his leg.
I just hope we aren't still playing both QBs come the ND game.
Mizzou has a better chance than Ole miss
M8, Clemson or UNC are winning the ACC next year. No way FSU gets past both of them, almost certainly not Clemson. Clemson and UNC will meet in Charlotte again and Clemson will beat them again but no way FSU has a shot.
Isn't Mississippi losing a lot of people this year? I know teams like Alabama and Ohio State lose a lot too but they, unlike Mississippi, had more than 2 years of recruiting success.
offseason as fuck already
post your unbiased favorite uniform (not your own team's)
light blue > dark
Call me a new fag but I really dig the Oregon's last year Rose Bowl uniforms.
And I have high expectations for the new Michigan ones. I hope Jordan brand will do a good job. God it must be good to be a wolverine fan right now.
>All Ohio State 1st string leaving to NFL.
Losing several but with backups and newcomers who are just as good or better (Tunsil's replacement might actually be better than Tunsil). Chad Kelly is coming back, and they're still loaded as fuck with WR's especially.
Calling it right now, but the winner if the Alabama v. Ole Miss game will determine the West.
I like the powders myself, but it's bizarre how many older adult fans bitch about them, especially when you consider they were the norm from Vaught all the way into '77 and then again from '83 to '94.
There's no way Bama loses to Ole Miss three years in a row. We're losing a lot but we've got fantastically talented players to replace them. Barnett could easily be the best QB in the SEC next year, we're just reloading on defense, and Scarbrough is a clone of Henry.
Basically you're in the position that Bama was in where the loser of that game needs the other team to lose twice in the SEC, and Bama is just too damn good for that to happen.
But that's the thing. OM has a fantastic returning QB, several returning stars, and some of the replacements might be better than the guy they're replacing, plus it's at home. Never say never, because everyone said "There's no way Ole Miss beats Bama twice in a row, AND in T-Town!" and yet it happened
>tied late in the game, Bama stuns Clemson with an unexpected onside kick
>Nick Saban cocks a rare smile and whispers to himself, "Now I am the Dabo" and vanishes into the heavens
This based faggot beat Bama with an A&M roster.
What's your teams excuse /cfb/?
>tfw Nebraska becomes a serious contender but can't escape the curse by Frank Solich's wife
>get over yourself
Oh boy, it's another edition of Sparty fags literally cannot handle that an aspect of Michigan's program is better than theirs. Guess what, our uniforms have nothing to do with my inability to get over myself.
But I always thought the Carolina Blues were pretty dope. Not normally a fan of Oregon's uniforms but their white/chrome look was cool also.
Still think that Deshaun Watson should be really fucking pissed off at his secondary and special teams. I've never seen a QB go off on an Alabama team like that in a game that mattered that much and still lose due to nobody else showing up to play. If a player accounts for 478 total yards and 4 TDs, there should be no reason his team loses the game.
>daily reminder you lost 7 defense starters this year.
Clemson will be in the playoff pictures for sure. I have serious doubt about FSU and Watson is maybe the best player in the country.
There is no foreseeable end to the Alabama dynasty. As long as Saban is there, Bama will be a perennial top 5 team, let alone a top 25 team. Saban is 64 years old, which means he has at least another 10 years left in him. After he leaves, Bama will very likely get Dabo Swinney, who will be 56 in 2026. Dabo will lead to another 25 years of dominance. So in total we have 35+ guaranteed years of top 5 finishes.
Beyond that? It's hard to say. If the recent trend continues, Bama will have won around 20 national championships in the next 35 years. Assuming you are only granted 15 years left of life, Bama will have to continue to dominate the AP polls for a decade and a half.
Even with Dabo retiring, Bama could hire a complete bozo and they'd still be top 25 for the next four years based off of incoming freshman talent alone.
So to reflect, we have a guaranteed 10 more years with Saban, 25 years with Dabo, and 4 years of NFL-caliber recruits under a new coach. 10 + 25 + 4 = 39. We'll round up to 40 just for simplicity's sake.
Bama is 100% guaranteed to be in the top 25 AP poll for at least 4/5ths of your remaining life. As long as their coach after Dabo is halfway decent, there is a very, very good chance that they will never drop out of the top 25 for the rest of your existence on this earth.
This is why I'm excited to see what happens when Saban retires and Bama eventually goes through more lean years. I how much their fanbase will deflate, numbers wise. I imagine plenty of their non-alumni fans weren't even around/fans for the pre-Saban shit periods
>the "muh college pride and pure hunger" meme
Fun fact: they're in college for the same reason any other college student is, building a resume and getting into the cash as soon as possible
1. Ohio State
5. Michigan State
9. Penn State
>Michigan State that low
Damn, I feel like people are really overestimating how much damage losing Cook and Allen/Clark will do. I think their offense will be fine, they just need a QB who is efficient not necessarily a superhero (which it looks like they had the former). Brian Allen also was coming on really strong at the end of the year, and Conklin is coming back, I think their line will be serviceable at the very least. Calhoun is probably their biggest loss, but I think overall their front will be even better than it was this year.
Washington Hooskies. Also Houston if they can even be considered a darkhorse at this point.
team - tOSU
uniform power rankings:
3. Penn State
5. Michigan State
99999999999. Notre Dame
they never were in style, red is the worst uniform color (other than orange or some other weird shit). at least ohio states looks good because they throw something else in it nebraska's are just bad
Those specific UNC uniforms might be the worst ones from the past several decades. The Navy alternates were GOAT.
Not sure how many they're bringing back, but they had at least 4 freshman that were big contributors on D (I believe 2 all conference corners and an all conference linebacker) and they're bringing back Browning and Gaskin as well. Browning was really hitting his stride late and Gaskin was lowkey as fuck last year but he was one of the better RBs in the country.
I think those would be a lot better if they didn't have a fucking footprint on the helmet. I agree, I liked them a lot more when there was no black whatsoever, I just wasn't trying to go through Google images to find an older pic
Bruh, I'm a student here and I'd love Dabo. Yeah he's the complete opposite to Saban; a players-coach that focuses on offense and loves talking to the cameras. But he's an Alabama boy, born and bred. Fans would welcome him with open arms if he decided to coach here.
Not many coaches are so rah rah as Dabo
Just look at the most successful coaches. How rah rah guys can you find?
It's sleek strategists
The complete opposite of the persona Dabo gives off
Lets be honest here.
Saban doesn't look very old and decrepit. He looks about 55 and could have 20 more years.
I fucking hope it's not all at bama; but it seems he could do it.
We were on our third string qb when we beat them......Oh wait
Which top ten P5 team will Houston crush in next year's NY6 bowls?
I am not for it. He's going to have to come in and try to change the culture at Bama for his stuff to work. And it's fine being a motivator, but can he sustain that with success? I would rather have Jimbo
>@AndrewJBone: I think #Alabama will have one of the strongest recruiting finishes in the country. A lot of elite prospects with very high interest.
REEEEEEEE WHY CANT ANYONE STOP SABAN WHAT THE FUCK HE JUST WON ANOTHER TITLE GO SOMEWHERE ELSE TO PLAY FOR ONCE YOU MOTHERFUCKERS
>choosing to go to meme programs instead of one where you can win NCs, Heismans, and get drafted
Post playoff predictions for next year
>1 Clemson vs 4 Tennessee

http://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2016/1/13/10758862/2016-college-football-week-1 look at that week 1 schedule damn
1 Baylor vs 4 FSU
2 Bama vs 3 Michigan
i'm an alumnus bitch i can say it
>no one is talking about the NCAA voting to allow conferences with fewer than 12 teams hold championship games
The Big 12 is so irrelevant that no one gives a shit if they push to change the rules to let them feel like they belong.
Mark my words - 3 years from now, Nick Saban will retire from coaching
>my face when people actually think the team with the best defense and a top 10 offense in the country will miss the playoffs next season
>Brandon Peters (objectively and statistically the best QB in the 2016 recruiting class, it isn't even debatable)
>Ty Isaac (best RB in the game who will be 100% healthy, unlike the entirety of last year. he will put up 1200+YDs/10+TDs/5.0YPC)
>Jake Butt (a top 3 TE already going into this season, 1000+YDs/7+TDs)
>Sean McKeon (literally a Jake Butt-clone)
>Amara Darboh (top 10 WR, 900+YDs/5+TDs)
>Jabril Peppers (a black guy trapped in a black's body, one of the smartest players in football, elite measurables, incredible upside)
>Kareem Walker (one of the fastest and most explosive players in football)
>Joe Beneducci (best blocking FB in country)
>Best pass rush in the B1G
>Best LB corp in the B1G
>Best secondary in the country
>Top 5 D-Line
Barring major injuries to key players, there is literally no way the Wolverines are missing the playoffs this season
The Michigan B1G championship drought ends in 2016-2017
You can't prove me wrong
oh, i would say that game was a fairly accurate reflection of the quality of the 2 teams; it's just that the way Florida was playing at the end of the year, putting a whooping on that team frankly isn't that impressive.
That uniform is absolute garbage. Your list is objective shit.
Don't reproduce. Don't even masturbate within 100 yards of a fertile woman for fear that your semen might somehow make its way into her womb and create more dumbasses like yourself.
Wasn't able to post during the championship game, but
>all that orange in the crowd
Someday perhaps, someday...
it's even worse I'm a rockets and texans fan
A lot of Stanford partisans are saying that the team will be a potential contender for the natty next season. I don't really see it.
They have to go to Oregon, to Notre Dame, and to UCLA (admittedly they've never lost to them during Shaw's tenure, though). They'll have to do so without the benefit of a veteran in Hogan, the left side of the O-line, and the D-line might be questionable now that mainstays like Shittu are gone.
McCaffrey is the truth, but with no WRs, and Keller Chryst's newness, I wouldn't be surprised if Stanford ends up losing four games.
Beat kal, though.
O-line recruitment has been a strong spot. I'm hopeful they'll bring out some new bubbas for McCaffrey. I'm hopeful Bryce Love will get some time too; that dude looks faaaast.
>mfw people think this isn't false-flagging
>5 Penn State players have transferred in three days, including WR Geno Lewis and RB Akeel Lynch
Their only losing their secondary. The seniors on the o-line were only starting towards the end because the younger guys, who were in fact better, were injured to hell and back.
Their WR corps is fucking loaded though. They had too many people to throw to. They lose their super elite receiver, but are still left with a handful of great and a bunch of good receivers.
Their defense loses the most in the secondary. DL gets more people who are coming back from injury, and some really great recruits.
It's very fucking likely Ole Miss beats Bama a third year in a row. Especially at home
mate he's a WRs coach at heart and Clemson has developed four #1-2 wrs starting for NFL teams under him.
people talk about his pride but fail to note how he coaches alongside elite coordinators.
I don't get why everyone is so high on Baylor. They've never delivered when it really matters, their nonconference schedule is going to weigh them down again, they're losing almost their entire offensive line, apart from TCU they get all of the Big 12's better teams on the road, and Oklahoma is bringing back Mayfield, Perine, and Mixon.
