I’ve always been a guy that roots for the underdogs. I’m a die-hard Eagles fan, I shed a tear when the Cubs won the world series, and when my ugliest friend (hi Brian) started dating one of the hottest girls in Pi Phi, I was happier than his Mom was. Here’s the thing, though: as fun as it is to watch Rocky get back up in the fourteenth round, he lost. As happy as Brian was to have a dime piece under his arm to accompany him to formals, she cheated on him. This is the way the world works. And come New Year’s Eve, as hard as they fought and as much as they climbed, Cincinnati fans are going to end up like Brian – passed out next to a half-finished bottle of Honey Jack with their hands in Sour Cream & Onion Lays Potato Chips. And while I’m sure that Bryce Young will throw for over three hundred and fifty yards, I’m thrilled that a non-power-conference team gets a chance to be in the CFP. We also owe Cincinnati for the exclusion of a perpetually overrated Notre Dame getting invited to this years’ playoff.
Vegas likes Alabama by 13.5, and I tend to agree. For every strength that Cincinnati has, Alabama excels, and then some. Cincinnati has one of the best secondaries in college football? Alabama is so stocked with receivers that even with John Metchie III out they will keep that secondary on their toes. Cincinnati has a strong run game? Guess who has the fourth-best run defense in college football…Alabama. I love seeing David beat Goliath as much as the next guy, but nobody would have told you to bet David if they faced off again. Take ‘Bama.
