With Michigan‘s dominant 42-7 win over Penn State on Saturday, there has been more and more chatter about the Wolverines running the table and going to the College Football Playoff.
If that were to happen, assuming Alabama, Clemson, and Notre Dame win out, Michigan would likely be the No. 4 seed and have to face No. 1 Alabama in the semifinals.
According to Bovada, if that matchup were to take place, the Crimson Tide would be a 14.5 point favorite over Michigan.
Also from @BovadaOfficial… look-ahead college football national championship game odds:
Bama -21 vs Notre Dame
Bama -14.5 vs Michigan
Bama -9 vs Clemson

Alabama is VERY good, but 14.5 points is a ton to give up to a great defensive team. Nation, what are your thoughts on this?
With or without Golden Tate, the 2018 Detroit Lions WERE NEVER winning the NFC North
As you know by now, Golden Tate is no longer a member of the Detroit Lions.
Earlier in the week, news broke that the Lions had traded their most consistent receiver over the past 4+ seasons to the Philadelphia Eagles for a third-round draft pick.
The move is one that has come under much scrutiny, especially from some local media members who cover the Lions for a living. Some have said the trade is a sign of the Lions front office waving the proverbial “white flag” on the season, while others have said the move would send a bad message to the rest of the players in the locker room and potentially cause them to “give up” on the season. I am not making his stuff up.
Anyone who believes either of those things is 100% clueless about NFL football and how it works. First of all, trading Tate had absolutely nothing to do with waving a white flag on the 2018 regular season. Though Tate has been the definition of consistency for the Lions since coming to the Motor City, he is not a player and will never be a player who puts the team over-the-top in terms of contending for a Super Bowl. The Lions offense has plenty of weapons and Tate, because of his age and contract situation moving forward, became expendable.
