The Sunday Blog comes at you after a great visit to Tallahassee and a better ride home. The best part was being home in time to see LSU and Texas A&M play forever.
- Interesting talking to Van Jefferson after the game Saturday as he was so proud of teammate Trevon Grimes. Grimes had not had the season he probably thought he would have this year with only 20 catches, but had a huge game against FSU with five catches for 118 yards. He also had to deal with his name being dragged into the Ohio State mess two weeks ago. “Tre told us not to worry about what was in the papers, just focus on our season,” Jefferson said. “I’ve seen it from him all year in practice.” Jefferson also said it was the Grimes TD in the third quarter that told him the game was over. “I looked over and they had quit hyping the game up, waving towels and stuff,” he said.
- I’m getting a lot of questions about who I think will be the fourth team in the College Football Playoff if the favorites win out. I think Oklahoma gets in over Ohio State because the Sooners will have avenged their only loss and Ohio State’s is a bad one. But we could still see chaos with the championship games and it’s not inconceivable both Georgia and Alabama get in again.
- You know how we always say it will all shake out in the end? That happened with my AP ballot. I have submitted so many that I didn’t feel good about. Today I submitted one that I am proud of. For you who may be wondering, I have UCF seventh and Florida ninth.
