    Michigan, MSU on CFP tightrope

    We can see the tightrope now.

    Just a few minutes after Michigan football finished accepting a gift from holding off Nebraska in Lincoln, No. 1 Alabama fell to unranked Texas A&M, and soon after, the shockwave hit everyone: The College Football Playoff is coming.

    Of course, we kinda knew it was coming — the first of four CFP ranking reveals is set for Nov. 2.

    November, though — that’s when it’s normal to think about the CFP, and the oh-so-narrow path to the heights of the postseason.

    (To be fair, Alabama’s last loss came 22 months ago, at the end of November 2019, and the Crimson Tide followed that up with a thrashing of Michigan in the Citrus Bowl. Matter of fact, the last time the Crimson Tide lost in a season before November, it was <checks notes> 2015(!), and they then followed that up, a few months later, with a thrashing of Michigan State in the CFP semifinal. Big Ten teams, beware of Alabama losses, is what we’re saying.)
