So wild rides all around as for the most part every game was entertaining. Notre Dame & Oregon playing a Classic Rose Bowl scandalously with Notre Dame representing the Big Ten in Bowl Season for the 1st Time. Fresno State as if they somehow knew they'd upset #2 Ohio in the 4 Team Playoff's Cotton Bowl picked up where they left off and gave LSU a tough game. TCU & Georgia playing a much more entertaining Sugar Bowl than they did the 1st time. Although I'm sure some people would've enjoyed the defense from the 1st go round as well. And lastly for the New Years Six Michigan & Missouri stamping hard the case that the New Years Six would still be must-see-tv in an 8 Team Playoff World with an Epic Orange Bowl despite their #15 & #16 Rankings.

After everything we've seen in recent articles from the surprising #2 Ohio Bobcats I was expecting and hoping Arizona would curb-stomp them to set up all-Power 5 Semifinals, yet Athens, Ohio proved just impenetrable enough for Ohio to survive to see the Peach Bowl Semifinal. Michigan State and Nebraska was much more entertaining than it looks as they went toe-to-toe all the way in the 1st Half. Then Nebraska just suddenly remembered that they had a wretched 2019 in real life and didn't show up in the 2nd Half. I thought the terrible weather conditions of Blacksburg, Virginia would do Texas in and give us something new in the Semis. It snowed in Blacksburg & Lincoln both. Yet Texas did just enough to survive a perilous trip to Virgina. Perhaps Virgina Tech wearing Maroon reminded Texas too much of us and A&M.

I was gob-smacked that Clemson didn't show up against me in Norman. Given their runners up finish in real life, the fact that their 2 Losses were due largely to a Trevor Lawrence November Injury, and their high ratings in the 2019 Community Roster I thought it was going to be our toughest game yet. Instead we nearly pitched a shutout in the cold December Gail-Force Oklahoma Thunderstorm we played them in. So we're set up for next time with:

#1 Oklahoma vs #5 Texas: College Football Playoff at the Fiesta Bowl, again.

#2 Ohio vs #6 Michigan State: College Football Playoff at the Peach Bowl.
