Is it bad when an eight-year veteran who had four 1,000-yard seasons doesn't know how the preseason works? Well, Chris Collinsworth admits that he's no longer going to pick his Super Bowl winners based solely on preseason performances. It makes you wonder if there's any correlation at all between being a former player and knowledge of the game. I mean honestly, I'll take John Clayton over Sean Salisbury and Ed Werder over Michael Irvin every time. I like Tom Jackson, but after him, I can't think of one former player whose opinion I value.
The SEC's streak of seven consecutive national championships isn't dead yet, but on the final weekend of the regular season, only Michigan State can keep it alive. Plus advanced stats, analysis and picks for the rest of championship Saturday.
