Wow, Lotta ranked teams fell to unranked teams today!
With the injuries piling up for us, and the rash of such close games as of late, I am worried. A bit worried about every matchup the rest of the season, as well as hopeful in every matchup the remainder of the season.Have to get past Maryland first!!!! Ha! (I can sense you're really worried!)
I disagree here. I think outside the very top tier of the SEC, our top teams are better than most nationwide, along with our competitive mid-tier B1G teams. Not all the power five conferences are that “powerful”, especially top to bottom, this year.I am very biased towards B1G, but I honestly don't think we have any teams that would belong in a 4 team playoff.
Everything you said about the defense and secondary sounds like Maryland and it happens every week! Like I said earlier this year Maryland is a young decent team that can move the ball. But they just can't hang with the Big Boys yet!With the injuries piling up for us, and the rash of such close games as of late, I am worried.

Trust me, our defense is horrible in third down situations, and our secondary has been bad all season. Young and inexperienced…and very prone to blown coverage.
Now with us losing a few VERY key players these last two weeks to injury, anything really could happen any given Saturday.
I think the biggest things we have going for us against Maryland is a) home game, b) we still have most of our top players healthy, and b) the presumption that our loss to Purdue will fire up the team to prove themselves at home next weekend.
I'm not so sure a loss is going to knock the Bulldogs out. They have displayed all season long that they are an elite organization. I think the only loss that would justify elimination would be an embarrassing blowout.Well, Georgia and Bama are headed to the SEC Championship game. A Bama loss would eliminate them from the CFP. A big Bama win would knock Georgia out, so there is still hope for Big 10 fans, for sure.
I have seen them in the past but don't pay too much attention to them. I just want to see who the top 2 teams are that are playing for the National Championship in Fargo south.......I've not come across this FCS rankings before...
Below are the Top 25 rankings based on the Sagarin rankings for the week ending Nov. 7th, 2021. CSJ will show weekly rankings from the Sagarin rankings throughout the season and will have a final ranking after the national championship game in January.

My thoughts too.…as another armchair fan.I'm not so sure a loss is going to knock the Bulldogs out. They have displayed all season long that they are an elite organization. I think the only loss that would justify elimination would be an embarrassing blowout.
Furthermore, an Alabama loss in a close contest probably would not eliminate them either.
Just my armchair fan opinion.
