While I will not choose cursive as the hill to die on, I find it much faster/easier to write in cursive than in print. And while much of what I do is at a keyboard, I still do a fair amount of handwriting (taking notes in a meeting, marking changes on a document, etc.). (TBH, though, my handwriting is not 100% cursive -- I'll do a print 'z', 's' and 'b' rather than the silly cursive versions.)

Say what you will about Harbaugh's antics. It's a helluva way to defeat the army of bagmen that pervades college football.

Harbaugh doesn't so much defeat the army of bagmen as become his own bagman, paying off recruit's parents/HS coaches with (presumably) lucrative jobs while just barely skirting the NCAA rule book. Funny, if a booster had given the dad a job, it may have caused an NCAA investigation, but because the school hired him, it's legal.

Can't understand why any college football fan would not watch the two best teams in the nation playing in the last night of the season.

I have a job and two kids under 3, so sleep is more important to me than a game between two teams I despise, even if it was the national championship. So that's why I went to bed at halftime. (And it ended up being a good thing I did, since my daughter woke up vomiting at 4:30.) Maybe I'm not a real CFB fan....

I think the #1 was correct -- if for no other reason than it was the game winner -- but I totally agree the 3rd & 9 run without which The Spot (which was good) would not have been possible, leading to the Brooklyn Dagger, is deserving of an entry in the Top 11, probably top 5. If I had to lose one of the others, probably the Maryland highlight (because Maryland) or the Fiesta Bowl highlight (while beautiful, it ended up being for naught).

Unless Hawk and Carp gave opponents Cleveland Steamers, get out of here with that BS false equivalence. That's as bad as Boulware: Poke opponent in belly button = fondling his genitals. If you and your teammates are OK with groping each other's genitals, that's fine I guess -- but you don't do that shit to opponents (because, among other reasons, there is no explicit or tacit consent). If the refs saw it, that should be a personal foul, at least.
