Podcast: Observer Roundtable — College Football Playoff preview

| Friday, December 18, 2020

We’re less than a week away from the College Football Playoff Committee announcing the field of four vying for the national championship. To preview that, Sports Editor Hayden Adams takes turns with members of the Observer Roundtable — Nate Moller (0:57), Patrick Gallagher (16:52), Dominic Gibson (32:23), Aidan Thomas (40:14) and Liam Coolican (57:06) — a group of Sports Writers who previewed college football and NFL matchups for the paper in the fall semester. Topics discussed include:

  • Conference Championship and CFP picks.
  • Is Notre Dame a lock for the Playoff regardless of what happens this weekend in Charlotte?
  • Could a two-loss Clemson, Florida or Big 12 champion get into the Playoff?
  • Is this the year for the Group of 5?
  • Do the Pac-12 and Big Ten deserve representation in this year’s CP?
  • For whom should Notre Dame fans be rooting, aside from the Irish, during this championship weekend?

The Basement Breakdown is available on AnchorSpotify, Google Podcasts, Breaker and RadioPublic.
