TN stole their defensive coach and the tide defense has not been the same since. The Vols look to go bowling on New Years day this year. Go big orange.
We also took Georgia's Offensive Coordinator. Just look at their offensive production this year as opposed to last. I would argue that UT has one of the better staff's in the Country.

It is good to get good coaches and even better to steal them from competition. It will take some good recruiting classes yet, but I believe the Big Orange is on its way back.

LSU vs Okla
Ohio St vs Clemson

If LSU wins their semi, (-11 right now) they will be playing for the championship in their own backyard (New Orleans)

Good games coming...,

Would have been nice to see a U of Tx vs TAMU matchup in the Texas Bowl (Houston) but isn't going to happen. Texas Bowl looks like will be TxA&M vs OK St and Texas vs ND in the 'Camping World Bowl..

Yep, 8 team playoff with P5 conference champions automatically in regardless of record. Then top rated G5 team and two at large bids. As things sit now, the conference championships don't necessarily mean anything, no need to play them. Take B1G this year, Wisconsin vs. Ohio State, neither team benefits from winning. Also every team should play 9 conference games so teams don't schedule 4 cupcakes to pad their resume.
I agree with all of this except the 9 conference games. Here in the SEC we beat each other up like no other conference.
While the SEC may be a very strong conference at the top, the bottom is hardly decent. The wins against Arkansas, Ole Miss and Miss. State were hardly high quality. The nonconference schedule this year was an absolute joke. NM State, Duke, and WCU (whoever that is) hardly count as anything other than a scrimmage attended by the band and a bunch of drunks. Let's be honest here, there are a bunch of other schools that would have been a better choice for the nonconference schedule that would have actually been challenging.

While the SEC is arguably the toughest conference, they do get the benefit of perception. Here are each conferences bowl records last year. When playing other P5 conferences, the results don't show the SEC as being superior. The top SEC teams are some of the top teams in the country but after that, they are average.

Final conference bowl records for the 2018 season

•American Athletic Conference. Record: 2-5. Wins: Tulane, Cincinnati. ...
•Atlantic Coast Conference. Record: 6-5. ...
•Big Ten Conference. Record: 5-4. ...
•Big 12 Conference. Record: 4-3. ...
•Conference USA. Record: 4-2. ...
•Pac-12 Conference. Record: 3-4. ...
•Southeastern Conference. Record: 6-6. ...
•Sun Belt Conference. Record: 3-2.

I agree with you on the non-conference scheduling. But the teams you listed are all in the West. Tennessee has to play Florida, Georgia, and Alabama every year. Vanderbilt is the only team in the East that should be a "gimme" and they have been pretty good in recent years.

I guess you can blame it on my big 12 bias, but I like the idea of having to play 10 games against Power 5 opponents in order to be considered for the playoffs/National Championship...
