Is it just me or does the idea that you "only" need to be one of four great teams in college football mean that you stop trying to be "the best" and merely try to be "good enough"? It's a repugnant ideology, if this is the case, but everything I've seen from this weekend reminds me of a bowler who is just gliding along, shucking balls towards the center of the lane in a devil-may-care way, assuming he'll great enough strikes from pure muscle reflex that he'll make it the next round.

Yesterday was the day where no one wanted to win, apparently. So many programs at the top of the charts looked bored, sloppy, with several teams pulling away late for a cushier margin.
Justin Thomas, pictured above during his playing days for the University of Alabama where he helped the Crimson Tide win a NCAA national title, won the Web.com Tour's Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship Sunday in Columbus, Ohio. He made a birdie putt on the first playoff hole to defeat Richard Sterne.
With just under a month of college football action already in the books, it's time to take a look at which four teams look worthy of featuring the the NCAA's inaugural college football playoff at the end of the 2014-15 season. Florida State got the week off, but one less playoff audition at this point in the season doesn't preclude them from the playoff conversation.
Ohio State dropped 66 points on Kent State in a shutout. Baylor notched 63 against Buffalo.
Most Alabama fans are having a difficult time wrapping their heads around the fact that Lane Kiffin is in charge of their beloved Crimson Tide offense. Kiffin has been a polarizing figure ever since he was chosen by the Oakland Raiders to be their had coach at the young age of 31, making him the youngest head coach in the NFL's "modern era" .
The most obvious initial impression from that game is that everyone seemed bored - the players, the fans at BDS, me sitting at home watching- as Bama did what was necessary, and nothing more, to overwhelm a hapless opponent at Bryant-Denny. All in all, things went to plan as USM goes home with a paycheck and Alabama goes home with another win and no significant injuries without having to show next week's opponent much of the playbook.
Three weeks into the 2014 season, Alabama coach Nick Saban has steadfastly refused to name a starting quarterback between Blake Sims and Jake 't need to. Saban and offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin 's division of playing time says it all: Sims is the guy.
Up three scores in the second half against Southern Miss, No. 2 Alabama had some back luck that could come back to hurt it in a big way.
Quarterback Marcus Mariota passed for 221 yards and two touchdowns and ran for two more scores and No. 2 Oregon survived a slow start in college football Saturday to beat Wyoming 48-14.
Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No.
No. 3-ranked Crimson Tide playing final tune-up game before opening SEC play next week against Florida. Live from Tuscaloosa: Alabama vs. Southern Miss No.
Alabama defensive back Anthony Averett is hit by Tony Brown in tackling drills during Alabama football practice, Wednesday, September 10, 2014, at the Thomas-Drew Practice Facility in Tuscaloosa, Ala. The college football nation? They'll be back at this time next week, when Alabama opens its SEC schedule against Florida in what is easily the conference's best game Sept.
