I used to be a huge NFL fan, but as that league's tendency to "make it up as they go along" with regard to rules (quoted a famous sportscaster there) they became unwatchable.

That game last night was unwatchable.

What constitutes a hold, really? Why is targeting so subjective? And pass interference? What the hell is a football move and why does holding the ball for three steps prior to the defensive player knocking it out not count as one?

Might as well watch old time big-time wrestling, if   I want to see the rules applied so unevenly.

Well, at least I learned that catching a ball and taking three steps before having it knocked out of your hand is not a 'football move'

Maybe if he had struck the Heisman pose ...

The refs were bad, but they should have been able to overcome that.

I don't know how the defense allowed a 94 yard drive in a minute and a half.  Flashback to Elway vs. the Browns in the 80s.

May Clemson's season end the way Elway's did those years.

I liked Day's interview.  He's obviously not pleased but I think he will get the guys to rally

and I'll say it again.  I don't think Herbie and the ESPN crew can kiss Clemson's rear end any more than they already have.  There's not enough room on that rump for more kisses.

Wait a minute, the mods deleted the other thread?

Aye Caramba Joe Burrow had a game for the ages.

So one Ohioan has had a good night.  Hopefully a whole stateful of Ohioans can celebrate later tonight.

5. Wilson will blow past Tanner Muse.

14. Hill will blow past Tanner Muse.

88. Ruckert will blow past Tanner Muse.

70. Year Old Mattison could blow past Tanner Muse, if he chooses.

Fixed it for you, but you'll need a few more reasons.
