I wish they'd change the instant replay rules. It's used way too excessively. It should only be used on turnovers and touchdowns. If a coach wants to review something else, he should have to use a challenge. I've see too many games where the action gets stopped every 10 minutes cause they're tying to determine if a guy caught a 5 yard pass.
Hopefully something will come out of this for once. I'm tired of other schools getting off the hook on this stuff.
Crush? Come on man. I think they're in the same class as those teams, but there's no way they'd dominate them.
I thought it'd be low scoring. Can't believe those defenses gave up that much.
I hope not. We need a rubber match between Saban & Urban.
I feel the same way about music. I never buy digital only albums unless if the physical copy is ridiculously expensive for some reason. Listening to a CD in my car sounds way better than plugging in my ipod.
If you want the bowls to be better, make the bowl eligibility requirement be 8-4 and scrap half of them. Then get rid of the conference allegiance requirement for the bowl selections. Rose should have #1 B1G vs. #1 Pac-12. If that can't happen for some reason, then they should select the best available matchup. This year's Rose reminded me of 2008 when USC got to tee off on the B1G's runner-up, who had no business being in that game to begin with. Honestly though, I think this season was probably just an aberration. Still way too many bowls, but I doubt that will ever change.
I disagree with you on hands and speed. I always thought Marshall had some of the best hands on the team. Dude made some great catches during his time here. He seems pretty quick to me too. I really wish he was staying.
And of course, the obligatory SEC chant. I don't get it and I never will.
Yeah, I thought he should have gotten it too. Henry's great, but he just grinds out yards. He's not really a flashy big play guy like McCaffrey. If Henry didn't get so many carries, his stats wouldn't be as great as they look.
I'd say losing Bosa offsets any guys they had out. Let's call it a wash.
The B1G's been all over the place this bowl season. They have some solid wins and some awful losses. I'll be satisfied if PSU can win tomorrow, bringing the record to 2-2 against the SEC.
I think OSU is at least #3. Pollsters will probably put them 4th though behind Stanford.
I understand that, but why can't you be granted a second chance? It just seems harsh to remove someone from the game for a play that isn't really dirty.
I don't get why a guy should be ejected just cause he hit with his head on one play. Nearly all these targeting plays aren't dirty hits. These plays happen so fast, it's impossible to always control your body. I just think it's way too harsh a penalty. Maybe it should be like a yellow card instead. Once you get two targeting penalties then you get ejected, but you can still play with just one.
Does ESPN have a contract with the "superfans" that they must be shown every game?
My beef with a bigger playoff: don't expand the field just capture that one team that got left out cause you're also going to get some teams that don't deserve to be there. To me 2 loss teams never deserve to play for a national championship, even if they won their conference. Also, the big regular season games are like quarterfinal matchups right now anyways. OSU-MSU was basically a quarterfinal. With 8 teams, that game would be meaningless. It's just unfortunate how it played out, but I still think 4 is best. It preserves the significance of the big games. With 8 teams, you know you can lose a game and still be fine. With 4 teams, there's always that doubt that comes with a loss, which makes the regular season more intense IMO.
The media and the committee need to get over this obsession with being a conference champion. Just cause you won your conference, it doesn't mean you're one of the 4 best teams in the entire country. You could have just played in a terrible conference.
The personal foul calls are getting ridiculous. They're called way too easily. 15 yards is too harsh a penalty if they're going to call it that easily. It should be 5 yards for personal fouls other than facemask.
What's worse is when you're in a bathroom with plenty of open urinals and a guy comes in and takes the one right next to you. I never got why some people do that.
Frictional Games. I'm a big fan of horror and all their games are great IMO.
4 teams is just fine. No need to expand just to satisfy bitter fans. Yeah I'm bitter about it too, but I'd rather preserve the sanctity of the regular season and the big games. There's still hope for this year.
I just think no one deserves to make that much money. It's why I can't get into professional sports. We have so many poor people in this world and these guys are filthy rich just for playing a sport. Same goes for most CEOs, actors, etc.
That still doesn't justify it IMO. Just cause players can make that money doesn't mean they should. Instead of constantly increasing players' salaries, why not lower salaries and lower ticket prices? They make enough money. There's plenty of people that make pennies compared to this and have way more important jobs.
I believe him too. It was just terrible weather and a poor gameplan that game. I'd love a rematch in the title game.
