Maybe someone mentioned this but I'm against an 8 team playoff because that puts the teams in a 15 game sked, with the last three against the best teams in the nation.  Anybody want to play again AFTER beating Oregon?!  I think the teams would have to give up a cupcake game early in the season to get it down to 14 games.  And no, I'm not making the academics argument (bogus) ... I'm just saying there is a lot of wear and tear on these kids.  That Bama game was Big Boy Football there...

if they had pulled out a win I would have aruged that kid was their MVP.  he was incredible and really kept us bottled up.  I really got some serious hate for him...  ;-)

I'll bet NFL scouts are drooling for him...

I'd argue the Texas Longhorns do even less ... one championship in 45 years.  But I see your point.  Bama is loaded every year and ... they have some big time fails on big time stages (hello Utah, OU and us).  Maybe it's teams in red that are their kryptonite...

Wow.  I wasn't a big fan of Cowherd but after that I must admit I kinda am!  That was hilarious!

Please stop this kind of common sense posting.  There just isn't room for it, or much call for it, on the Internets these days.

Bingo all the way around.  They just entertain.  They're just funny and goofy and they TALK SPORTS.  I love me some M & M.

Is this the Helen who calls in on Finebaum's show all the time?  SEC speed wins again...

Gonna miss Mark May's antics like you miss having the stomach flu ... NOT!

Seems like ESecPN seems to have gotten the message that (1) there is football in parts of the country other than the south and (2) hacking off a big fanbase just because really doesn't work.

As a consolation, we'll always have that wonderful time after the Ark Sugar Bowl when we booed him off the set.  Good-bye and good riddance!

and this is why it's a downer to live in the south.  our TJ Maxx is full of Longhorn and Aggie stuff...  you miss out on these kind of deals.  sad face.

but it is 65 in January and I do get to golf all year around (so there is that)...

And the Gunners take the FA Cup!  Welcome here or not Arsenal WINS!

I tried some Skyline Chili at a Reds' game a couple of weeks ago.  Picked up daughter from grad school when semester ended and we did six MLB games in six days at a six different stadiums.  Wonderful father-daughter trip.

So we tried Skyline at GAMB (which is a fabulous ballpark) and we liked it.  It's good!  Our only confusion was "why is it called chili?"  There's nothing chili about it.  As Texans we know about chili - and it has to have CHILI PEPPERS in it to be - wait for it - called "chili."

In Texas Skyline Chili would be called "Sloppy Joes."  And again, I got no problem with them.  They are good.  Apart from this semantic misunderstanding I love'em and would eat them all the time.  #SkylineGreatness

Matt Millen?!  He's dreadful and any time he makes a comment all I can think is "You drafted a WR five years in a row IN THE FIRST ROUND for the Detroit Lions who were the worst team in professional football.  What can you possibly know about football?"

Comment 02 May 2015

Can we just make it a rule to have a great play from the Wisky game, Bama game or Ducks game in every Skull Session?  IT JUST STARTS THE DAY RIGHT, you know?

Comment 24 Apr 2015

I kinda think it ought to be permanently installed in Jerry World.  Seems like things went well the last time we played there...

AND WE'RE GOING TO OVERTIME!!!!  

My first act as Prime Minister of the Universe will be to end the designated hitter rule. But my second act will be to make Gus Johnson the official announcer of everything.

Ordered my jerseys on March 15.  They arrived yesterday.  Not kidding.

The workmanship is exquisite.  I'm sure someone could tell they they didn't come from the officially official source but most folks couldn't.  They even have tags on them.  The swoosh is the multi-faceted diamond swoosh, the patches are perfect, the numbers are sewn on.  In short, they are schweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

The only problems are (1) the sleeves are a little long (as you can tell in the pics - they are almost "pitching sleeve" length - what's up with that?!) and (2) the sizing.  The sizing is the big problem.  You can see a white SMALL laying on top of a scarlet LARGE and you can tell they aren't hardly any different at all.  What you are supposed to be seeing is white jersey that would be equivalent to an American large and a scarlet jersey that should be an XXL.  The white one will do but the scarlett one is not even close.  I'll have to email the seller.

All in all I'm very pleased.  They are GREAT jerseys, especially for the money.  And 15 days to get here?!  Awesome.  Custom numbering and GRIFFIN on the back?!  Even more awesome.

And in other news, the NCAA announced a long investigation into potential violations by the term of the coach's will.  An NCAA spokesman said they were concerned "this might violate the student-athlete's amateur status."  He offered no comment on whether any of these players ever went to class.
