There is no difference to being up 12 vs being up 13 when Florida is going to get two possessions the rest of the game. Even if you miss the 2-point conversion (up 12, or down 2 if Florida scores 2 TDs), a FG still wins you the game same as it would if you had kicked the PAT (up 13, or down 1 if Florida scores 2 TDs)

You lose nothing by going for 2. If they made the 2-point conversion, the game would've gone to OT. Butch made the wrong call.

ACC would make that trade in a heartbeat. That should tell you how unbalanced your proposal is. Penn State, despite their lunatic fringe, is a valuable member of the conference.

Notre Dame has nothing in common with B1G universities outside of geography. They view themselves as an elite, private, East Coast university that is unfortunately located in rural Indiana. They're small, private, and have a focus on undergraduate education. The B1G is large, public (sans Northwestern), and put a premium on graduate programs. They fit the ACC way better than the B1G. The ACC is full of schools just like them.

Just going off of OP saying a 300 lb man chasing them down would be terrifying. When cops do something good, they should be recognized. The only press they ever get is negative stuff.

I love Mangold, but the credit here belongs to the cops who apprehended the suspects. All the article states is Mangold dialed 911 which was the smart thing to do. Going vigilante in the middle of the night against an unknown number of possibly armed burglars doesn't seem like the smartest thing to do even if it is our first instinct many times.

From the CFP website:

9. Pairings for Semifinals.

The team ranked No. 1 by the selection committee will play team No. 4 in the semifinals. Team No. 2 will meet team No. 3.

When assigning teams to sites, the committee will place the top two seeds at the most advantageous sites, weighing criteria such as convenience of travel for its fans, home-crowd advantage or disadvantage and general familiarity with the host city and its stadium. Preference will go to the No. 1 seed.

I hope like hell the team doesn't ponder these ridiculous questions. If their heads are where some of these posters heads are, we're going to lose about 3 games this year. I bet Bama thought they had the best backups in the country last year too.
