CFB Pod: Negandhi and Herbstreit react to LSU-Alabama

Kevin Negandhi and Kirk Herbstreit kick off the podcast with their initial reactions to Week 11, who they think will land at No. 4 in the rankings and concern that Alabama might be out of playoff contention. Then the guys get into LSU keeping its foot on the gas in Tuscaloosa (14:48), the video of Ed Orgeron in the locker room, and the possibility of the Tigers playing all of their postseason games in Atlanta and New Orleans. Next, Herbie explains what's going on with Chase Young (22:40) and how the NCAA investigative process will unfold, why this is the most complete Ohio State team he's seen in years, and what's up with Oklahoma (33:20). Later, Herbie talks about working with Lee Corso for 24 seasons on College GameDay, what he's learned about business and life from him, and a text from Bill Belichick on his respect for Coach Corso (38:15).

LSU ranks first in Strength of Record and it isn't close. An average top-25 team would have had just a 1% chance to be undefeated thus far against LSU's schedule. Meanwhile that seem team would have had a 16% chance to go undefeated vs. Ohio State's schedule, the next best. Among the undefeateds, Clemson had it easiest: an average top 25 team would have had a 29% chance to be 10-0 at this point against the Tigers' schedule.

Not only is Alabama very much still alive, but it has the fourth-best chance to reach the CFP and win the national championship, according to the Allstate Playoff Predictor.
