You're 100% wrong about that. Their model had a MUCH more realistic odds split than any other polling prediction model. Also, their results are heavily based on polling so you can't expect them to just invent a different result from what universally skewed polls were indicating.

Uhhh. Herbstreit is dead wrong here. I don't care that he talked to "two coaches" that say it doesn't get called. I've watched thousands upon thousands of hours of football and that "special technique" as Herbie seems to think it is, is no-called about as often as other egregious PI calls. Which is to say that while PI doesn't always get called, even in obvious cases, it usually has more to do with how the conference officials tend to call it and, many times, the nearest ref simply loses focus and doesn't see it. 

If you watch a lot of SEC football, you'll see a lot more PI not get called. I'm not saying that's good or bad, but I've definitely noticed more egregious plays not get called in SEC games than in any other conferences games.

When Harbaugh is eventually outed as a lizard person the first thing he'll hiss is "how could you not know? I gave you so many obvious clues."

Thank god. Worst announcer on TV. 

I remember one of his infamous Tebow calls after little Timmy missed a WR by a mile on an easy throw: "That pass was well off the mark. A great throw though."

Yet another Alabama running back who runs the ball a bazillion times behind the perennial best o-line in the country against a giant batch of mediocre defenses. 

Most years Alabama's backup running back looks just as good as the starter. Any idea why? Also any coincidence that they continue to underperform in the NFL?

The issue with this season is HOW we lost the MSU game. It wasn't from just being straight up outplayed. The arrogance of offensive playcalling for anyone that has ever coached an offensive was glaringly obvious. It was as bad or worse than if players were calling plays themselves. 

And to STILL ONLY LOSE BY A LAST SECOND FIELD GOAL? It's a loss that people won't, and shouldn't, forget for a long time. One of the very few losses in my time as a fan that I would say was pretty much handed in. 

Too much was riding on that game to not give a complete effort. I believe the players gave their best. But the team didn't.

The second best team the SEC has to offer, ladies and gentlemen.

This is a TEDx talk. TEDx events are nowhere near the quality and prestige of actual TED events. It's basically playing dress up for pseudo-intellectual adults.

The National Championship was a climax of “The Chase,” the name Meyer gave his team’s quest for a title after watching Alabama crush Ohio State as an ESPN analyst in 2012.

This should say "Notre Dame".
