I think the PAC12 and BIG12 champs MUST have two losses for us to have a chance.
The SEC champ is automatic, a one loss SEC west team is almost automatic (the way the current narrative goes), and FSU is a near certainty. That leaves one spot at this juncture and a one loss Oregon and a one loss TCU or Baylor (I can't believe I just typed those two) will be taken over us. If both those conference don't have a one loss team, then it would come down to hoping ND loses and we win out.
Long road ahead, IMO.
What amazes me most about this catch (the one vs. Akron) was how he snagged it turning around and grabbing the ball in the mid-section, not at the nose you see some one handed catches. Do you have any idea how hard it is to stop the ball going that fast and not even cupping the nose of it!? Simply remarkable.
Really good considering, would have been a bit better with a sharp focus. Still pretty awesome.
Almost as good as his one handed catch vs. Akron a few years back (better outcome today with the TD, but the 2012 catch was more technically difficult, IMO)
Awesome pics! I am particularly impressed with the capture of the one handed grab by Spencer. Nice job!
When did all those SEC teams get over 100K seat stadiums? I used to think that only UM, OSU, PSU and Tenn were the only teams over the 100K mark.
That was my first question as well. Very distracting.
It was mentioned above about having Raekwon and Grant on the field at the same time, good thinking. It is definitely something they should try to make happen.
Well, this is definitely not the forum for this, but I would take issue with how one defines "better" in terms of how the Scandinavian countries you mention are "doing better" than us. Also, there is a big difference between investing in national infrastructure (education, economic opportunity, etc) and simple welfare or redistribution of wealth, with no accountability or expectations. We have a permanent underclass because of low expectations and dependency, not because of lack of opportunity.
Also, it is a bit more convenient to be able to invest all your national economy in the above areas when you don't have to be the police force for the world, as we are.
