  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.

I'm no expert but having the same number of picks as you do completions seems no bueno.  I'm hoping Washington can give Bama a game, assuming they land 1, 4.

Good stuff.  I'm very torn about whether to root for Colorado or not.  On the one hand, I want Michigan to suffer and be left out.  But part of me thinks their whining might go away some if they make the final 4 - i.e. they'll think "justice" was ultimately served.  They can't blame The Game on keeping them out of the playoffs, and they'd get their shot to prove something.  And then they can get a big ole piece of Bama and get their asses handed to them.

Two things that might make LSU enticing: 1) no Nick Saban as your boss (who screams at you when you're handily beating an FCS school) and 2) LSU's offense has been so abysmal to come in and finally fix it would be a huge success story/resume builder.

If he sticks around and tries to improve - great.  If he gives the NFL a try and does well, great.  I don't see it happening, though, but I see him as one HELL of a coach someday.

I'm with you.  Right now the argument is: how do you leave this 1-loss team out or that 1-loss team out?  And we need 8 teams to ensure a good/worthy team isn't left out.  But as soon as you go to 8 teams just think of how many TWO-loss teams will now be "unfairly" left out. 

Put another way, as of now, the CFP in its short history, doesn't seem like it will ever put a 2-loss team in the final four.  But opening things up to 8 teams certainly could allow that and we have the same problem we have now.  There will still be teams (perhaps more!) that have a case but are left on the outside. 

Keep it at 4 teams please.

Said this elsewhere also...I'm not sure if this is solely JT's issue, or if the O-line also takes some blame.  But how many throws is JT going to have batted down at the line of scrimmage?  I counted 4-5 in The Game alone, but it's happened a lot in other games recently as well.

I heard Dan Dierdorf this morning also.  Very annoying.  He actually said he would try to not "wear his team's hat" (or something like that) during the interview.  He failed miserably.  And M&M kept saying they agreed.

Not sure, but we did have one year where our line was only called for like 3 holds the ENTIRE season (or something amazing like that).  This stat you're hearing isn't totally out of the realm of possibility, but I doubt it's true.
