Receiver Jameson Williams with Alabama

Jameson Williams

Ohio State fans are familiar with receiver Jameson Williams who came to Ohio State and was third on the depth chart behind Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave but left for Alabama before the 2021 season. “Going into Ohio State, I thought that was going to be my spot,” Williams told Bama Insider on what he felt when he first went to Columbus Ohio.

Williams Not a Key Part of the Offense at Ohio State

“I was looking forward to the season at Ohio State, but they didn’t use me the way I thought they would use me. I think my role was different than what I really wanted it to be. I didn’t feel like I was standing out like I felt like I would standing out.”I started looking at my situation and talking with my parents about my situation and I felt like I made my decision (to leave) based on my circumstances. Me and coach Meyer had a talk and he said, “Hey, it looks like you’re thinking about transferring.” He said that he would release me if that was what I wanted to do. We went from there and that’s when I started thinking more … Read more at FryingPanSports

Is the SEC is over rated?

SEC (2)

NOTE: On NNR Samantha Bunten of NBC Sports and I discussed the news of the day and previewed the Browns/Jets game.

For years the SEC has been riding on the coattails of the University of Alabama. But if you haven’t noticed the SEC has failed to win the last two national championships. In fact the lowly ACC and Big 10 (sorry that the colleges can’t count) have won the titles recently.

Going into the 2015 season the SEC had 7 teams in the AP top 25. How much of those rankings are based on talent vs. reputation? My answer is a lot on reputation and a little on talent. The Coaches Poll is not votes of the coaches at all. The people usually voting are from the communications department of most schools. The problem is that once a team is ranked it is easier to stay there.

But so far some of the teams have been struggling playing the Sisters of the Perpetually Miserable. But because the teams are part of the SEC, they tend to stay in the top 25. Other conferences that lose tend to fall out of the ranking. Maybe the voters will pay more attention next … Read more at FryingPanSports

If the playoff committee has 2 SEC teams in there will be trouble.

SEC

Note: On NNR yesterday Samantha Bunten of NBC Sports & I previewed the Browns/Falcons and other games this week. The podcast is on https://fryingpansports.com/radio-show/.

I have no problem with 2 SEC West teams being in the top 4 with a couple of weeks to go in the college football season. However, if the committee keeps 2 SEC teams in the final 4, I have a BIG issue with it.

No team that does not even play in their league’s championship game should ever be considered for a spot in the playoffs. Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer had a great point last week after his team’s win over 25th ranked Minnesota. He suggested that if the teams in the south are so good, let them come up north in late November and play a Big 10 team in the cold and snow. That would be a true test of their ability.

While ESPN seems to think the SEC is nearly equal to the NFL, many around the country see things differently. While Auburn prepares for their big game at Alabama, they will play the Sisters of the Perpetually Miserable this week. That is not unusual.
