Even if everyone in the top 7 wins out, I think we get in.   TCU will not be a conference champion, Baylor will because they beat TCU.  MSU would be watching bama play in their championship game, while we would have beaten 3 top 25 teams in the last 5 weeks and won a conference championship.  we could jump TCU anytime because they play nobody. we would beat a quality team the same day Baylor does and with MSU not playing. The committee would have every reason to move us in the 4 spot.

I suspect his meeting will be right after the playoff is over.   possibly the meeting will be before, but any findings will be after that trophy is already in the case.  see gibbons, brendan for the playbook on that one.  Toss him out of school right after he declares for the draft.

anybody else notice all the "unrivaled" stuff on sweatshirts, on the backdrop for the postgame stuff, etc?  It's really messing with their heads that we don't call them a rival, and I enjoy it immensely.

we got the ball at the 12 1/2 yard line instead of the 25 on the 2nd ot.

You know Penn State is going to be talking about that botched interception call for at least 5 years, too.   Just like Miami talks about that pass interference call in the fiesta bowl like there was a second shooter on a grassy knoll.

I have a lumia 1520, and while it is large, it's pretty thin and light.  Size in the pocket is definitely an issue, but the screen is awesome to actually use.  battery life is spectacular, and I tend to use the speakerphone so I don't look a total fool holding it up to my ear, although there is no functional problem using it normally.  if you find yourself doing a lot of web browsing and whatnot, the screen is worth any other tradeoff for me.

After seeing that video, I don't understand how he's not in jail honestly.   They were arguing, but damn....malice in that swing.

Now I am not as old as some here, but it seemed like in the 90's, the big ten almost had the current SEC reputation.  When Penn State joined, and then with OSU and UM consistently in the top 10 for years, we were at the top.  I think these things are sort of cyclical, and it's just not the big ten's time right now.  remember, there was legitimate discussion about having 2 teams in the championship game in 06. Jim Delany telling ESPN to screw off and starting our own network didn't help, but neither has about a decade of pretty consistently losing big bowl games and non-conf games

Channel ten did a whole thing on the news last night about how you can just text stadium security to handle "unruly" fans that just won't sit down.    I guess that works instead of, you know, realizing you're at a football game.  Glad we have an army of enforcers ready to handle that

1-JT Barrett, he could have packed it in after that silly interception, but really stuck with it.   

2-Dontre Wilson between the tackles and Curtis Samuel in general.   These guys are gonna keep d coordinators up nights.

3-tackling.  several times the runner should have been down 5 yards before he was. hope this isn't gonna be a thing all year.

Hard to watch tape in hotel rooms I guess, gotta get ready for Va Tech!  No rest for the weary.

I'm happy about the improvement over the course of the game.   Not sure if it was coaching or execution, but the line went from getting embarrassed an awful lot in the first half to gaping holes for backs and giving the qb some time on passes in the second half.   If the second half offense shows up against Va. Tech, i am confident.  Defense, we will see next week.  So hard to really judge against that option
