I know you disagree because you really favor the advanced metrics.  The same ones that said Ole Miss was so great at mid season,  That did not work out too well for them.  Bottom line, Alabama's experience and talent would crush USC.  Not by 50 points, but perhaps 14+

Ok, to be clear, I watched the game and the trophy presentation.  They brought out Archie for the MVP award and I went "oh-oh" here we go again, I remember last year.  But the PS QB was super respectful.  Perhaps it was just normal behavior, but based off last year, I thought it was good sports.

True, but it was none of the current players or their coaching staff. I just think they handled themselves in the best light. And previously I'm no fan of Penn State

I have thought about this quite a bit.  I wonder why it is considered such taboo in football to pull a struggling starter (struggling hitting open targets from  less than 10 yards) with another QB.  All athletes have off days, particularly at the QB position where its not 100% athletic but more timing, similar to having an off golf day.  Replacing "QBs" in other sports like baseball all the time.  The difference is in football you can bring the starter back if the backup is not any better.  So, what is issue?  Do we not want to hurt the delecate feelings of our starters.

Agree.   I looked up the stats for the CO QB.  It was the starter.  He completed 3 passes in the game for 23 yards 3 picks and a QB rating of negative 9.  How do you get a negative rating?  He was terrible and I don't think the UW  defense is that good.  They are going to get smoked  by Bama.  But I will  be rooting for them to win.

I was at this game and both teams, particularly the offenses did not look great.  Colorado is a horrible football team.  I don't know much about them, but I stand by that comment unless the starting QB was not the normal one.  He was very bad.  Browning looked  like crap as well.  UW got three picks and they happened right in front of me.  One was a lucky tip and the other two were just terrible throws.  UW has a chance to get beat by 50 against Bama.  They are like 62-3 bad.

This type of thing is incredibly common.  It is a complete lack of independent critical thinking that is rampant with many people.  Peppers was an average defender with good upside as a safety.  Great returner though.  I work in the Financial industry so analytics is my game and I can clearly state, Hooker was robbed.
