Weekly Showcase Game Thread
« on: March 14, 2017, 12:44:25 PM »
I took the liberty to choose Bama @ FSU, but really being played in hotLanta- in the first regular season game in the Falcon's new stadium. 

I figure we can post polls here to decide what games will be the Weekly Showcase during the season. 

eh?

i looked at the UF/UM game- and I think it will be a good matchup, personally.  I've been wrong before, though... your assessment makes sense don't get me wrong- it's just that it's kickoff game, and strange things happen.... Ol' Hardy Har may have some surprises up his sleeves.  Same could be said for Florida, though.

The Bama FSU game has national implications.  It would be dang interesting to see Bama fall (drop two in a row? hard to believe it's possible, huh?), and just as interesting to see how far either of them fall in rankings no matter who wins. 

you guys have heard me for years beg for polls to be withheld for at least the first four weeks..... that's a pipe dream, though.  I'd love to see focus on the inter-conference rankings and then start valuating the conferences bases off of proxy games (which is about as accurate as the polls.... so... there's that...).

If Bama-FSU is a close game, the loser will still be very much in the national conversation. I believe that is one reason Saban likes these things so much. Win and he is in the driver's seat. Lose and he is still in the car.

Look again. You picked the right game for Week One. My list was for your poll in Week Two.
