Nice work. Helpful graphic. I was rooting for ND as an FSU loss may have taken them outta the running, instead ND is still in it. Sucks.

Also, Kansas St is like an octopus.

Edit: Holy crap I didn't even notice the colors the first time! What a great graphic!

If your name ends in an "o," then you are technically a sovereign state, and therefore not subject to the laws of the flatlanders.

Comment 17 Oct 2014

Agreed. It's not a blind vote where votes could be split among worthy candidates. They'll just figure out which team from the Big12 "deserves" it most, and that team would be in.

I'm really excited for basketball season. I feel like basketball is such a great sport to watch players develop, because you can read their faces, and see how they interact with each other. It's a lot better live, because you can see how they are between plays and in huddles and everything. I remember when I first saw Oden/Conley's class. Oden was still hurt, so Cook would have been the highest touted Freshman playing at that point, but I could tell in warmups that Mike Conley was the real deal just by his demeanor.  

It's gonna be a lot of fun watching Scott lead Loving, KBD, Tate and Russell. I hope Slam comes along this year, so much potential, actual NBA potential with his length and ridiculous athleticism. 

I think it will also be pretty clear early on whether Amir has made the necessary change from meek to bold.

Not entirely related, but I'm surprised Hubbard still has his redshirt. I know part of the reason is they don't know where to use him, but I thought I remember reading something about Urban telling his assistants, "Play him. He's not gonna be here in five years." That makes sense if he does seem like an NFL athlete. It is always unfortunate to possibly only get two years playing outta a great player like Big Daddy, Manziel, (probably) Jameis. There was a minute there where I worried about Mike Thomas blowing up this year and going pro.

Doesn't matter if a couple of the conferences have an undefeated team. If FSU and TCU go undefeated, but pac-12 only has two loss teams, and SEC only has one team with less than two losses, OSU would probably make it (over ND or Oklahoma, or some other one loss team).

Thanks, Citrus. Lotta football to be played. Remember last year when it seemed like an undefeated OSU team wouldn't make it to BCS Championship game? Well, I'll say now what I said then, if OSU wins out and doesn't get in, so be it. Just win. Then the first game after it was obvious OSU controlled their own destiny, they lost. Just win.

Wouldn't you also say that maybe it's a little early to be throwing up in your mouth? Sometimes players get better.

Comment 06 Oct 2014

Nice! Excited to try it. Thanks for not Munsoning the link.

Looks like the NYT has their best guys on it.

The Southeastern Conference, where the University of Florida plays, has won seven consecutive B.C.S. championships.

That number is off by 7.

Seriously, though, I think this is a real problem. It's terrifying to think that Dave Brandon (or the jackholes who hired him) are the B1G's best chance to turn things around.

Nutt was the head coach during the time of the violations the NCAA is going to ignore. 

As far as what the picture actually is? I can't figure it out either, but I get the impression he's in some hot water... or is being thawed in some kind of Demolition Man scenario.
