If you have been lucky enough to attend a Rose Bowl the view of the San Gabriel Mountains right now at about 5 pm PST is worth the trip alone.

Nice game Jim. Hope you had a good time. I especially liked the ending.

You guys sound like idiots regarding the targeting rule, and *intent* has nothing to do with it when the action alone was egregious, like the TLaw hit, I knew that guy was gone from the first replay.

They both should have been ejected so tOSU got off light IMO, other dude threw a punch...wtf?

Itís a good rule, helmet to helmet play is never, ever excusable, so dumb.

You guys, I thought, were better than that, so fucking dumb.

Shaddap.

The Earl Campbell/Jack Tatum collision is one of the best plays I've ever seen. Two men playing football. Hundreds, no, probably thousands of like hits throughout college football history. Never see that great stuff ever again.
Careful, cap. Some stupid, stupid man is about to mock you.

That Jack Tatum died young and Earl Campbell can barely walk is probably an argument that those that don't think that stuff was great can make.

Itís me tho, basically you are making the ďget off my lawnĒ/ďIn my day...Ē logical fallacy, they have known this rule since high school..., whatís your beef, professional boxers and UFC fighters make a professional decision to forego the risk, and so has the NFL which applies the rule tighter than NCAA imo, questioning ďtargetingĒ on the TLaw play *is* dumb, and I like you cap but your argument is flawed.

You donít like NCAA or NFL football donít watch it.

Thatís also a choice, but the idea these rules could be reversed is a non-starter...

The professional referee which Iím sure you categorize as an *apologist* was good enough for me and his logic was sound, good enough for me, and correct I thought.

If you think football should be played in a manner in which you can potentially end a players career, thatís sad, and you are detached from reality if you *argue* Tlaw lowered his head, go right ahead but Iíve seen the game 3-4 times including replay, and itís just not factual.

And, like, we know about CTE now, the good old days were not ambivalent to science, they just didnít have it, and btw, the rule is one reason a dad May let his kid play amateur football.

Have you ever driven from Vegas to Phoenix at sunset with a shower and lightning coming in?


My most interesting experience like that was driving East on the 40 at night about 20 years ago with lightning strikes visibly hitting the ground on both sides of the freeway.  While I was indeed impressed by the "Light Show," I was also scared s***less.   I have never been that scared inside the Rosebowl...even when UCLA actually threatened to win.  Therefore, I'm going to give the nod to watching the sunset at the Rosebowl out of those two experiences. 

Though tonight, I was completely happy watching scarlet and blue intermix over the Saddleback Mountain out my back window while watching the Rosebowl from our family room.

Great story, Troj.  Glad the PAC12 champs got the win.  Have a good night with the family and best wishes for the New 2020 Year.

Best thunder soun show?  On the Bosporus Straits in Turkei.  The thunder rolls for about 20 miles and overlaps with the earlier echoes.  Have never heard anything close like it since,
Saw that.from the prison, did you?

One of my friends had a sister married to a Purdue football player. Preseason his senior year in practice, gets hit while snapping the ball and his neck is broken. Died right on the practice field.
So no body ....

Looking forward to days, if not weeks, of discussion about Walker's hit on Brewer last night.

I did not see much of the game, or that play, but I assume some stupid, stupid man will use one hit to argue that Georgia is a dirty team.

Methchicken people are accusing Alabama of running up the score. I had switched away from the end of the game, but I assume by "running up the score" they mean "continue to play football until the final whistle". You know how to stop someone from running up the score? Fucking tackle someone. For the record, Methchicken's starting QB threw a touchdown pass up by 4 touchdowns with 2:33 to play against us. I am pretty sure Pete.Carroll - or trojan - would have some thoughts on running up the score against Harbaugh as well.

Hard to beat someone who forces you into 4 turnovers. But Wisky's maligned by idiots who might as well still be blindfolded and buggered in a Turkish prison Defense held the Ducks to 204 total yards, 70 on the opening drive. One scoop and score.on a botched punt, two TDs on turnovers around the Wisky 30. Tough hole to climb out of, though tackling the quarterback would have helped.

The equally maligned by idiots who might as well still be blindfolded and buggered in a Turkish prison Gophers Defense did a great job against a God's Conference elite team -.well, defensively elite at least.

The Pure Prairie League had a rough bowl season. 1 and 5, including a loss to a Gang of Five team, with only Texas over the allegedly vacationing Utes.

Still one game involving Power 5 teams to play, but God's Conference dominated the bowl season this year. 6 - 2, including winning all three of its NY6 games.

So, using the final CFP rankings and adding in Memphis an 8 team playoff would be
LSU
tOSU
Clem
Okla
Oregon
Georgia
Wisconsin
Memphis

The first question is how many of those teams could win three times?
Answer is only the top three
Next who would care to watch LSU beat Memphis or tOSU play Wisconsin a third time.?
Answer is not many.
Who would pay to travel to watch those games?
Answer is even fewer.
