Adding playoff teams does not make a lot of economic sense either.
The four preliminary games would be two weeks before the Holiday weekend and upsets could deaden the glow of possible Marquee Matchups.
I agree with you on this.   

I have heard a lot of the younger college football announcers arguing for expanded playoffs and frankly their arguments are less than stellar.  This morning...it was either Danny Kannel or Greg McIroy was arguing that the LSU Oklahoma game was a great argument for an expanded playoff.  His line of thinking was that Oklahoma would have been eliminated earlier and this semi-final would have been a better matchup.

How about... there were three teams this year that deserved a shot and it didn't matter who the 4th placeholder was?

I predict the Tigers will win the National Championship and Death Valley will be celebrating.


That was fun

By the way, I think you should be allowed to celebrate a fat guy touchdown however you see fit.

I thought that was already an official rule?

All the best teams play on the Friday after Christmas. I am sure trojanhorse agrees.


I will not protest.  That's about all I can offer though.   As bad as we've been playing, I'm of the opinion that the less said, the better

this will automatically track with confidence points, but more importantly perhaps, Steve, you can use the data to recreate your wins/losses game however you want to.  for instance from today forward if not everyone already a pickset in place.

I can set a bowl pickem easily on the ESPN/Capital one site.  Since I'm already doing it for another group

The only question would be starting from now (locked) or accepting pick sets already submitted from other contests (including yesterdays games)

Really? There was not a moment of the game I wasn't thinking something like, THE may give this game away, but PSU cannot take it for themselves.

Maybe he means it in the same sense that I use to determine classic football games...   2005 Orange Bowl was a classic game!   2006 Rose Bowl was not. 

Other people seem very confused by those facts.  Not sure why.

Yale won 53-40 in overtime


I don't recall seeing an OT score like that before.   Did they return a turnover for a TD?

Entertaining game. I imagine Trojan throwing things at the screen every time Brian Griese says USC should keep Helton.

I am not one of the fans screaming for Helton to be removed.  Though I can certainly understand if they make that decision.   I would hope they feel they have a strong line on a really proven coach before they would pull the trigger on that at least.

I think if they replaced Clancy Pendergast and John Baxter this year, they would be in the 10-2 range with Helton and Harrell remaining in place.  I really used to like both those guys, but the past two years seem to indicate the game has passed them by.

I am sorry, but who came up with the bright idea of letting the Bruins play a game after this one?

who else...Larry Scott

I am nearly the last person on Earth to make excuses for Nick Saban.  But I can't fault him for playing Tua for one half of a football game.  He very clearly wanted to be in the game.  If this had happened in the fourth quarter, then sure, I would understand the second guessing.

I'm here for you, Steve.  We'll get through this together.

Psst...Is anyone near the Phoenix area in case this goes sideways and we need a full on intervention?
