Call us crazy, but something has been missing this season.
We can’t say it’s been a lackluster season — not even close. Wild finishes in Durham, Ann Arbor and Atlanta in the last three weeks have made this a season to remember.
It’s not a season that seems to be marching to an inevitable end, either. Every conference as at least two teams with hopes of reaching the College Football Playoff. Even the American Athletic Conference has given us three teams in the first top 25.
No, what the season has been lacking is definitive statements by the top 15 or so contenders.
That’s about to change, starting this week. LSU-Alabama and Florida State-Clemson are true statement games. That will be followed by a round robin among the top four teams in the Big 12.
If the big games follow the trend of the craziness of the first two months, buckle up.
