I'm guessing that he's making a jab at that Houston booster--something, honestly, I'm not very much a fan of if the accusations are all true.  I don't think he realizes that admin's and regents have very long memories--or, he so sure he's going to light it up at ut, none of it will matter--the place Herbstreit called a cesspool.

Yeah, just to add, 'regression' assumes many things to be the same or similar over the past three years, that just simply can't be assumed--just as in the statistics model.  The fact is the guy has led teams that win, and he's got some (healthy) time now to prepare himself and this team to see how far they all can go.  The Game and making it to the CFP, what a remarkable achievement already.

Three of them I don't see at all--well, one of three I still see chasing after JT with no luck and being taken out of the last play of The Game by Weber.

I wonder if UFM isn't channeling his inner Woody

Cannot say how many times I've thought that, but then he calls a fake punt deep in his own territory.

WHAT I WANT TO SEE IS PLAYCALLING THAT ASSISTS YOUNG AND DEVELOPING O-LINE PLAYERS who will one day be stud star players but right now need some cleverness to support their play some.  They reach bama, god knows they will need it.  I dislike psu's staff but they have done what they needed to do in support of their o-line and, when playing us, exploiting ours.

I like my my mistake better than the wilson alternative.

Just on the side, what the cfp committee decides along how these polls have gone makes me wonder about how 'interpretative' things will be in the future when it comes to the actual cfp selection.  With a departure from the conference championship results, the fans may end up with another layer of poll-sorta subjective decision making process, although from a far smaller group with the final say and this 'say' only about the who's a top-four team.
