J3C College Football Top 25 (after week thirteen)

Every championship season has a defining moment.  Did we see one of those last night in Los Angeles?

I still expect Alabama to beat Notre Dame by double digits in the eventual National Championship Game, but if something else takes place, the Irish’ goal line stand against USC is likely to be the moment that we all remember.

Saturday also provided the moment that Auburn fans will likely remember for a long time, as Alabama laid waste to the Tigers, an exclamation point for the end of the Gene Chizik era.

Georgia provided an exclamation point of their own on Saturday, drubbing the hapless and hopeless Jackets between the hedges.  Alas, it’s unlikely that even yet another embarrassment brings Tech fans any relief in the form of the end of the Paul “I Can’t Recruit To Save My Life” Johnson era.

There was relief in other forms on Saturday.  In Gainesville they’re relived that the Gators found 24 points in the 4th quarter.  In College Station they’re relieved that Johnny Football’s knee seems to be fine.  In Lincoln they’re still relieved after the Huskers found a way to avoid the embarrassment of a loss to Iowa on Friday.  In Los Angeles they’re relieved that they get another shot at Stanford with a trip to the Rose Bowl on the line after the first crack at the Cardinal didn’t turn out so well.

And at home, you’re probably relieved that it’s time to reveal this week’s J3C Top 25.
