Yesterday, he had this to say:
Rutgers is 7-0. Let's play fantasy football for a minute. UConn next week at home: 8-0. Louisville on a Thursday night, Nov. 9, at home. Since we're fantasizing, give Rutgers the upset win over the Cardinals: 9-0. At Cincinnati (not a gimme) and Syracuse at home the next two weeks: 11-0. Then Dec. 2, at West Virginia. Follow me for a minute. Let's say Ohio State beats Michigan, and either Oregon, Cal or Notre Dame beat USC in November. Let's say West Virginia gets to the end of November 11-0. Imagine, as December dawns, there are three unbeaten, untied teams in college football: Ohio State, West Virginia and Rutgers. Rutgers and West Virginia could be -- could be -- playing in Morgantown for the right to play for the national championship.Well, sure it's unlikely! (The Knights can't beat West Virginia at Morgantown on the last day of the season, and will have to settle for the Rose Bowl.)
But it's not as if you can perform the same exercise for every team in college football.
For example, you can't write: "So, Stanford has #3 USC next week, but they're at home, so they should lose by no more than 4 touchdowns. After that, they're at Washington, then home against Oregon State. At that point, the Cardinal will be 0-11, and 0-8 in Pac 10 play, poised for Big Game, this year at Berkeley . . . ."
