Clemson makes move in metric tied to winning national titles

Clemson's success over the last decade -- and particularly in the Playoff era -- has it in an elite group from a talent standpoint. After coming in seventh last year, Dabo Swinney's group is up to fourth in 247Sports' Blue-Chip Ratio (67%), which judges the teams that can realistically challenge for Read Update »

Will be higher this year than anybody else period & we will be even better in 2022 if we’re still playing football & a bunch of players don’t leave in the portal.

I’ll be honest here, I’m a little partial but minus a big rash of injuries or a bunch of untimely turnovers we will win the next two 4 team playoffs.

Look for uga to choke both years because of their consistency the last 41 & 42 years!

It's rare that I agree so completely with an "expert"--that in itself is scary, both pro and con--but I think Mr Elliott is absolutely correct.

If any fan thinks that expanding the playoff will allow someone other than the Big 4 to win a national championship, they are in for a big let-down. Without lots of blue-chip players, the odds of any Cinderella team out coaching and outperforming 3 great teams in a row is highly unlikely. Could a Bouse St pull a single upset? Of course. Could a Baylor pull 2 before their overachieving QB gets laid out? Possibly. But could they win a championship? No, and the final won't be close.

We just watched Marshall do it in soccer, but big dog football coaches get paid to find ways to put the game on the backs of their outstanding players. You cannot envision a football championship run like Marshall just had in futbol. It might even hurt the watchability of the game.

OTOH, if you look at the development of a championship program as a stage that needs to be achieved prior to accomplishing the end goal, the playoff expansion may be just right. If teams get exposure and funds from reaching the playoffs, possibly they can improve their recruiting in order to parlay that success into better success on the field.

So Clemson has a better window for championships until, say 3-5 years after any expansion goes into effect.

By that time the highest talent pool will be diffused more throughout the country. That will probably be good for the long-term future of the sport beyond Clemson, assuming the sport hasn't self-destructed by then.
