FULL VIDEO EPISODE: Tom Fornelli Reveals Who Some of the Worst Power Five College Football Teams Will Be This Season

On today's Pardon My Take... TOM FORNELLI! The Big J from CBS Sports joined Mr. Cat and Mr. Commenter today to talk all things college football. With Week 1 officially underway, who are some of Tom's favorite bets this weekend? Which teams should we our keep our eyes on as the season progresses? And finally, who are some of the worst teams in college football going to be this season? We spend so much time with analysts breaking down who the best teams will be, so, it's time to give some love to the bottom.

Mr. Cat: Let's do something different. Who is going to be the worst power five team in the country this year?

Tom Fornelli: Oh, that's a good question, but it's Kansas.

Mr. Cat: OK, wait, you didn't let me finish, and you can't say Kansas.

Tom Fornelli: Oh, shit. OK, wort Power Five, I think it could be Duke. I just think they've been trending in the wrong direction the last few years. David Cutcliffe, they had a couple 9-10 win seasons there for a while where things were going really well, but they've been going in the wrong direction ever since. And I just feel like the worst teams that had been the terrible teams in the ACC have all improved and Duke hasn't. And so, there's a real chance that they go winless in the conference.

Mr. Commmenter: What is it about Duke? Because I know that the Manning's used to go down there and throw all the time. What is it about Cutcliffe? Is really a QB guru or is he the guy that orders the stuff from the black market and they go down, spend a week in his dorm room, and then the next thing you know, they come back healthier than ever next year. 

Hank: And Daniel Jones.

Tom Fornelli: And Daniel Jones. Yeah, it could be that. I think it's just, more than anything, I think especially a while ago, David Cutcliffe was just a very good quarterback coach. But I think these days, Cutcliffe's specialty is more with the kind of QB's you think of with the Manning's, where they're kind of in the pocket, you're not really looking at them as mobile guys. And I think that now that the game is changing towards more of a spread up tempo, you need a guy who can throw and run. I don't know if Cut is, as great of a coach as he is, is as in tune to develop those guys as he used to be. 

On the bright side, there will always be basketball season to look forward for both Kansas and Duke. Well, excluding last season, when Kansas did not reach the Sweet 16 and Duke missed the tournament entirely. But maybe their football teams will be a little bit better than expected this season. Probably not, but maybe.
