Most college football analysts are debating which of the three undefeated teams is most likely to win the national championship. Will it be the reigning champ, Clemson? How about the team that has dominated throughout the year (other than having to fight back in the Big 10 Championship Game), Ohio State? #1 LSU has the most impressive wins against top teams this year. Who will come out on top?
What essentially none of them are considering is other team who squeaked into the playoffs after a convenient series of events and unexpected losses moved them from #10 back into the sacrificial #4 spot. The Oklahoma Sooners, led by Heisman finalist Jalen Hurts, are not likely to make it past LSU with odds-makers putting them as 13-point underdogs. If they can pull of that miracle, they’ll have to face either Clemson or OSU. Their odds of getting back-to-back wins and a national championship: 18-1.
But odds are less likely to hold people back when they have faith, which Jalen Hurts does. He’s had his shares of ups and downs. He won SEC player of the year, then he got benched. He was called from the bench to lead his team to last year’s SEC title, then got benched again for the playoffs. He transferred to OU and was the Heisman favorite after a tremendous start, but a loss to Kansas State and his numbers coming down to earth in the tail end of the season means he’s unlikely to be the third OU quarterback in a row to win the coveted award.
None of that seems to matter to him, though. His focus is on beating LSU and serving his Lord and Savior.
“I understand that God put those obstacles and challenges in my life for a reason,” Hurts said. “He wanted me to feel the pain I felt for a reason. He wanted me to understand the importance of never losing faith — and of always staying true to myself. He had NOT brought me this far just to leave me there.”
During an interview with ESPN, Hurts said he has gained more wisdom about himself through his journey.
“The wisdom that I’ve learned from everything and what I’ve been through. I’ve been most pivotal in who I am and knowing that the journey is far from over.”
They have the offense. Nobody doubts that. But the other three teams also have stellar defenses to go with their dominate offenses. LSU and OSU also have Heisman finalists leading their team. LSU has the favorite in Joe Burrow and OSU has two of the four candidates, quarterback Justin Fields and defensive end Chase Young. As for Clemson, they may not have Heisman finalists but they have arguably the most complete team in the mix.
The odds may seem to bode ill for Jalen Hurts and the Sooners, but as someone who puts it in God’s hands, he understands odds mean nothing on the field. Faith works well for underdogs, and the Sooners are my sentimental favorites to win it all.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
