Heisman Pick

Trevor Lawrence – QB – Clemson

The most common name chosen was that of Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence. Other names that were brought up were Wisconsin RB Johnathan Taylor, Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa, and Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts.

CFP Predictions

Clemson, Alabama, Texas, and ….Ohio State or Oklahoma.

Clemson and Alabama were unanimously selected to make it into the CFP. Texas was selected by the majority of our voters. Ohio State and Oklahoma were tied for the 4th spot. Washington, Michigan, and Notre Dame also received a vote.

National Champion


The Tigers are our pick to win the College Football Playoff – receiving most of the votes. Alabama and Texas were also selected as potential winners.

Wrap Up

We will keep this going throughout the season – hopefully. Some weeks we will have more voters – some weeks we will have less. The only thing that is for sure is none of us really know what we are talking about – just like everyone else.
