They're flat better than Tennessee.

Im not gonna sugarcoat it.

I still think UTs top 5 and a playoff contender.

Us being Cub fans Im sure you all can appreciate that.

Tennessee’s chances of making the playoff are still looking decent if the Clemson and Bama scores hold up tonight.

A very good day for the Big Ten getting two teams in the playoff.

Whoever wins the Michigan-OSU game gets in, obviously.  Just a question of whether the loser gets in, too.

If the Big 10 is the only conference which has two undefeated teams playing each other in November, they probably should get both teams in the playoff.  The SEC would argue that their past track record in the playoff overrides that, but that's the calculus that will decide it.  The whole playoff system is a joke to begin with but it's all we have at the moment.

I'd almost say the playoff might be shaping up as Georgia, OSU, Michigan, and Tennessee if the rest of the season goes as expected.  I really don't think Clemson, Oregon, or TCU as conference champions would have a better resume than a conference runner up Tennessee or the OSU/Michigan loser.  As lackluster of a game as Tennessee played against Georgia today, they still played them way better than Oregon did for example.

The way the Bulls look right now they may be out of it before Ball comes back, if he even does this season.

It's got to be tough to get motivated to try to get into the play-in round knowing there are so many teams in the East better than you.

At this point the best plan might be to totally blow it up and try to get in the lottery.  A 10% shot at Wenbanyama might be the best chance the Bulls have of being relevant in the next five years - he’s that good, and they’re that middling.

LaVine is a disappointment to me.  He doesn't seem to have the burning desire to win that a star needs.  Lots of talent but something's missing.

Betting Billy Donovan is going to take the fall at some point.

Talk about a horrendous loss. The Bulls were down 15 at home to Orlando, battled all the way back, and had a 4-pt lead with 20 second to go. Still found a way to lose.
