  Was Willie Taggart the Worst Hire of the 2018 Coaching Class? | McMurphy’s Law Brett McMurphy takes a deep dive into the numbers. Pete Carroll, Urban Meyer, Mark Richt, Nick Saban, Bob Stoops and Jim Tressel are the most significant. Each posted double-digit win seasons in Year 2 — with Tressel, Stoops and Meyer winning a national championship.

Last week, I mentioned how I had projected Oklahoma as my fourth team in the College Football Playoff for the past four weeks and would continue to do so until the Sooners lost.

Well…I had a change of heart.

Actually, it wasn’t so much anything the Sooners did, but more so what their opponents did — Kansas State and Texas both suffered losses last week. The Wildcats and Longhorns will now likely fall out of the College Football Playoff’s Top 25 rankings Tuesday night, impacting Oklahoma’s strength of schedule down the stretch.

Just last week, I was projecting Oklahoma to finish with a very impressive 4-1 record against teams in the College Football Playoff’s Top 25 (Baylor twice, Oklahoma State and Texas), but now if OU runs the table, the Sooners will likely only be 3-0 vs. CFP Top 25 teams (Baylor twice and Oklahoma State) with their loss to K-State now even worse, since the Wildcats will probably no longer remain in the Top 25.

by Brett McMurphy , Stadium College Football Insider. Down the stretch we come: only three weeks until Selection Sunday, when all of the 39 bowl pairings will be announced. My College Football Playoff selections remain unchanged and I expect the committee to have these rankings on Dec.

I’m projecting Utah to win the Pac-12 Championship Game and earn the fourth College Football Playoff bid along with undefeated LSU, Ohio State and Clemson.

Since I’ve been projecting LSU to win the SEC, I haven’t had Alabama projected in the playoff for quite some time, but I dropped the Crimson Tide’s projection from the Sugar Bowl to the Orange Bowl because of the impact of the unfortunate season-ending injury to quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

I still have Memphis finishing as the highest-rated Group of Five conference champion, but if the American champ — whether it’s Memphis, Navy, Cincinnati or SMU — finishes with two losses, Boise State or Appalachian State, as 1-loss champs from the Mountain West and Sun Belt, respectively, could earn the Group of Five’s Cotton Bowl berth.
