What was the name of the place?  I go to Phoenix just about every year for business, and might want to stop in its anywhere near the convention center.  Of course wearing Buckeye gear.

As a Washington fan, not sure about the high maintenance comment on RG3.  At his size, he will probably be injury prone if he continues to run.  He seemed to get worse at holding the ball too long and having happy feet under pressure.  I was always surprised Chip didn't have Philly look at more running QB's, but maybe he will look at RG3 after he gets cut.

I thoroughly enjoyed the game last night.  Barely rooted for Clemson (growing up in MD, they were rivals for ACC crown actual football schools like FSU and Miami joined, so I still hate them).  Was I sorry OSU did not make it, of course.  But I enjoy the college NY bowls and championships more than the Super bowl, and try and take the next day off so I can get drunk watching them.  Still pissed that I had to travel years ago and watch a Super bowl, March Madness, and OSU's Sugar Bowl win over Arkansas.

Cautiously optomistic.  Lots of talent leaving, but that is also because of the massive talented recruiting and player development.  I get the OP's statement about Bama just reloading, but I think OSU has the ability to do that as well, at least getting through the Big 10.  Looking at the table in this article which puts OSU at #3 for cumulative recruiting classes, next closest is TTUN at 17, then Nebraska and Sparty at 25 and 29.  On the OSU schedule OU is at 13.  But the inexperience factor may trip them up 2 or more times and knock them out of the playoff picture.

As a Washington fan, I definately don't see that coming, at least not this year.

You can't tell anything from this video.  He has already been dragged outside, there is no audio of what is being said. Or why one bouncer had him in a chokehold when others are dragging the guy out.  I used to frequent one bar where the bouncers loved to start stuff, call for backup on their walkie talkies, then swarm and beat the shit out of people.

If Cardale was trying to get more college playing time before going to the NFL, this would likely be a great spot.  Not that I don't enjoy seeing Florida stumble.

I have hated ND since childhood (late 60's). Almost as much as TTUN, more than the SEC (which is more of a recent hatred) or USC.  Growing up in MD, this is similar to the hatred I had for UK b-ball, which was just a little less than my hatred of UNC and those sickly pale blue uniforms.  Although I think I hate Duke more, the most obnoxious fanbase in history.

Weird survey.  I live a couple of minutes outside the third worst and work in the fifth worst.  Germantown just has one of the branches of the county community college, and I don't even know what college is in Arlington.  Both are DC suburbs, Arlington is only about 10 minutes out of downtown DC by subway, Germantown is about 30/40 minutes out and is a bedroom community.  Can't think of either as a "college town."

I saw the ceremony for the national police memorial in DC one year where they add the names for the cops killed the previous year, someone had left out a bucket filled with biscuits for one of the police dogs.

Good article.  Unfortunately one quote has given me hope which will probably be crushed in a few months "Bosa, a junior, said he’s still keeping his options open when it comes to the NFL draft and will continue to discuss that decision with his family."

1969.  I was a kid, but I remember they crushed everyone until losing the game.  Closest win that year was 27 points (thank you wikipedia)

Interesting thought behind your post.  You might want to point out the pre-bowl rank of the defending champ and the records of the teams that did play for the championship.  Also if one of the teams playing for the championship basically beat out the defending champ (which is the case with the most recent three on the list, not sure about the other two).
