Kevin Negandhi and David Pollack kick off the podcast by discussing David's triumphs in his youth football championships and their reactions to the Week 12 College Football Playoff rankings. Then, they get into LSU's awesome play calling, why the Tigers shouldn't want to see the Crimson Tide again in the Playoff, Minnesota's win over Penn State, David's Dude and listener questions. Next, Heather Dinich joins the show (33:18) to explain why this is the first time in the CFP-era it feels like Alabama could be left out of the Playoff, the Pac-12's overall resume and why Baylor might be doomed no matter what. Finally, Ivan Maisel hops on the pod (44:13) to talk about why he thought Minnesota should've been higher in the rankings and why it's hard to know when a dynasty ends.
The Crimson Tide are no longer in the CFP rankings' top four. Their fate now is in the hands of others, including the selection committee.
A memorable performance in a win against Bama (and Chase Young's absence vs. Maryland) helps put the Tigers' star QB in the driver's seat for the award.
