Group of 5 would love a 16 team playoff.

Yes, but they are deeply flawed, the stats people are posting about influenza deaths are recorded over the span of a year, even two years. Then they make meme's comparing the deaths of both viruses even though COVID-19 has only been in the US for a week, well of course the flu has killed more people in the past year, COVID-19 is new, the flu is not. Just because the meme has "data from the CDC" in small print on the bottom doesn't make it credible. Listen to actual doctors working on the matter, most say that the overwhelming majority of us will not die from this, however, when the year is over, it is highly likely that COVID-19 will kill more people than the flu.
How do I figure? It's only been in Italy for about a week to two weeks and it's already killed over 2,000 there.
This will kill more people in 2020 than the flu when 2020 is done. I can't believe there are so many of "you" out there that get all or you info from memes.
Feel so bad for Dayton. This was a 1 in a century team they had.
Every basketball player should be granted another year of eligibility. My 2 cents.
Of course it does, but there's always an appropriate time for questions. You don't ask about a will at the funeral.
So if I bring a girl to my home on our first date I get an automatic pass to do whatever I want to her because her being on my property is sending some sort of signal of automatic consent? Yeah, that will work in litigation. And even if she consents at first, both parties have the right to stop in the middle of it, you can't just bring your homeboy in the room in the middle of sex and and tell her "too bad you're in my apartment already that's how it works!".
It's not an asinine statement, real men don't need random hookups, a real man will find one woman to be with at a time and have zero desire to share that woman with anyone. When you find that woman, you won't have to force to them on camera to say the sex was consensual. Have fun on Tinder I guess. It's not about morals, find that girl and you won't have to worry about consent or finding some way to get your rocks off. Ever notice the man who regularly sleeps with one girl in a long term relationship tends to be a lot happier?
I don't know man the video is pretty damning. I've never had a girl cry after I had sex with her.
Is it so hard for these young men to just find one woman and be happy instead of aimlessly looking for random hookups? Sheesh
Heard from the grapevine that he barely tried at YSU. He made it to the national championship in 2016 with the former coach Wofford's players, and once he lost his OC Shane Montgomery, the offense went to shit real quick. I don't even think he recruited at all, YSU had little talent at the skill positions on offense once Wofford's players were gone. Another complaint was his preference to put on players and staff who had ties to his High School in Youngstown, Cardinal Mooney. They had 9 kids from Mooney on their roster last year taking up spots, as well as a 26 year old defensive coordinator who also graduated from Mooney. Hopefully they do not hire his brother, and hire someone else, like Shane Montgomery, who is he current OC at James Madision and has interest in the HC job at YSU. And for those of you that don't know, the Missouri Valley Conference is really good, like really good, YSU needs a coach that will put in the effort.
Respect is a two-way street. Being over-zealous by getting worked up over cigars given the situation of LSU just winning the title is also disrespectful to the players. That cop wasn't out there catching TD passes in the biggest moment of his life. He's there to protect the players and coaches from crazy fans, know your place, know the situation. Now that cop has to live with being shamed on the internet, should have just let the kids have a damn cigar for god sake.
You want to enforce the new smoking law? Fine go ahead, I think it's stupid, but go ahead and enforce it. But you can't just take a step back and say "ok, they just won the the championship, let 'em have a freaking cigar." ?? Nope, lets go full on alpha cop and be an ass about it like your catching a bunch of kids behind the high school stadium.
That's the ridiculous part of the whole thing. I think 99.9% of "men" would agree getting slapped on the buttocks from another man is not "assault." But that's what government, and even more precisely, prosecutors do. "Well, there isn't really a law for this, and we don't like what he did, so let's just charge him with assault and battery." Assault and battery is meant for physically harming someone, not this. Regardless of how dumb OBJ is and how he always acts, this behavior should not be described as "assault," doing so is over-zealous. This cop was just mad because when he was trying to confiscate cigars, no one was respecting him and allowing him to be the alpha-male in the room. That's why he got mocked and OBJ tapped him on the buttocks. College Football players smoking cigars after they just won the freaking ship, big deal tough guy.
Call me Ron Swanson but I find it difficult to not ridicule a grown man who has a gun and a taser on his hip, as well as a radio to call a bunch of his other buddies who also have guns, who claims he was assaulted because another man slapped him in the buttocks. I also think we have way too many laws in this country, and prohibiting 18 to 20 year olds from enjoying a celebratory cigar during the greatest moment of their lives up to that point is downright petty and typical of over-zealous government and law enforcement. And anyone who says "well its the law" I'm going to assume you've never drank a beer before 21, never drove above the speed limit, and have a four foot long wooden stick up your ass.
So if Fox had the game yesterday, and we had Pac 12 officials that scope and score is still overturned? It's still roughing the kicker? It's still targeting? I can see a couple bad calls, but literally every subjective call went the same way.
Quit acting polite. You're being fake as fuck. We all know why you're here, to bask in our misery because you're the type of person who finds happiness in other people's misery. You come here wondering why your fake polite comments aren't well received like we're dumb and just starting using cfb boards yesterday. Fuck outta here, be grateful that your ESPN overlords that own your conference also own the rights to the playoff.
For as long as Big Noon Saturday and FOX's TV rights for the Big 10 exist, the Big 10, Pac 12, and Big 12 will never get a fair shot in the playoff that is broadcasted by the same corporation that owns the TV rights to the ACC and SEC. I would also go out on a limb and say the shoe would be on the other foot if FOX owned the broadcasting rights to The Playoff. You honestly think those calls go Clemson's way if it's a Fox broadcast with Pac-12 officials?
TV corporations have heavily favricated narratives over the last decade or so since the dawn of these "conference networks" and now I'm beginning to believe they are influencing what is happening on the field.
I mean cfb was already unbalanced as it is, the freaking national title is played in the SECs backyard 3 out of 5 years, and not one single major bowl game is played in the midwest. LSU gets a home game for the national title.
Do you finger buttholes too?
Not for me, as long as TV networks own the rights to certain conferences it guarantees a fixed playing field, not even interested in paying attention next year. Ya'll have fun watching ACC/SEC network fixed college sports. Hey let's see which two SEC teams make the playoffs next year, maybe it will be three. ESPN cant have FOX have any of the spotlight.
SEC Network and ACC Network is owned by Disney who owns ESPN. They employ the commentators, the sideline reporters, and rake in the revenue from all the ads. On the other hand, FOX owns the Big 10, as well as Gus and Joel. It's no coincidence that the officiating crews in both games today came from the two confernces that ESPN owns.
The Dobbins drop was the exact play that Jesse James for the Steelers had against the Pats two years ago that created a rule change in the NFL on defining what a catch is. Regardless, the call could have went either way, as well as the roughing the kicker, as well as the fumble, yet in every booth review, it went the ACC/ESPN way, which raises suspicion especially accounting for the fact that the two officiating crews work for the confernces that ESPN owns. Cant let a team from a conference that FOX owns play in the national title.
ESPN owns the ACC and SEC. The two games are officiated by SEC and ACC officials. Yeah let's accept this as fair.
Yeah but theres also a laundry list of gifts of subjective calls that seemed to go one way that gave one team an advantage over the other that we can point the finger to.
