Looney Toons, Fat Albert (Hey, hey, hey) and various non-Scrappy Scooby Doo shows are memorable to me.

Time to break out the Billy Madison quote on her

Mr. Madison, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

I remember Conference USA unveiled an all-time all-conference team a few years back for some anniversary or another.  Not one player on that team ever played one minute in Conference USA.  They were all from pre-CUSA eras.

So yeah, conferences are good at BS claims.  And if CUSA is doing it, you have to bet the SEC will do it too.

FWIW: According to this story (don't know how reliable it is), he was placed right next to a Broncos player in the Postgame interview and that player was explaining the game plan (make Newton throw) and that must have PO'd Newton.  So maybe it explains things a bit.  But storming out of an interview is always a bad look.

A championship is a championship.

You can argue that in a league with only a few teams, the talent is a lot less watered-down.

Is it a Super Bowl?   No, that marketing term was not invented until 50 years ago . . . but they were NFL championships just the same.  They just happen to be very long ago.

Do they have odds on getting a first round playoff game at home and choking it away?  I know my favorite team must be the favorites in that category.

They could use an extra Buckeye or two to get that eye of the tiger going.
