11: Alabama and Clemson have combined to win 11 of the past 12 College Football Playoff games.

1-8: Jim Harbaugh's record at Michigan against top-10 opponents.

85.1: The Total QBR for Georgia QB Jake Fromm in 2018, behind only Kyler Murray and Tua Tagovailoa.

10: Returning starters on offense for Oregon, led by star QB Justin Herbert. Can this help the Pac-12 stay in playoff contention?

40-1: Alabama's record against all non-Clemson teams in the past three years. The Tide are 1-2 against the Tigers.

20+: Clemson enters 2019 having won 10 consecutive games by 20 or more points, tied for the second-longest streak in the AP Poll era (since 1936).

125: ESPN 300 recruits who signed with SEC schools, the most by any conference in the 14 years ESPN has done recruiting rankings.

2001: The last year a first-year head coach -- Larry Coker at Miami -- won a national title. Can Ohio State's Ryan Day do the same?

21-5: Army's record over the past two seasons, better than all Division I teams except UCF, Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Notre Dame and Georgia.

79: Percentage of Texas' touchdowns last season accounted for by QB Sam Ehlinger, the highest for a Big 12 player since 2011.

So far Harbaugh is a bust. He is 8-10 vs top 25 teams and yes 1-8 vs top 10. I would bet our buddy BO had a similar record vs ranked teams. Plus Michigan gets better recruits. Similar to Texas and USC, it shows just getting top recruiting classes isn't enough. Have to have everything clicking. Sometimes I think getting everything else in place is more important than having top recruits. The right coach can get the most out of his. Iowa is good at that. Taking OK talent and getting 8 and 9 wins most years.
