Re: General Chit-Chat thread

I was all ready to finish off my student loan debt with this year's tax refund, then we went and had a second kid. It'll have to wait until '20 most likely.

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

Wouldnt you rather fix the former problem rather than the latter? You seem to be upset about the seedings proposal but both problems would be fixed if you just joined the damn ACC like all of your other sports. You aren't the first to bring up that kind of seedings proposal, and I just find it ridi...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

It would be extremely difficult for a 1 loss ND team to even make a 8 team playoff. So it doesnt bother me that they dont play in a conference. I am pretty sure all B1G schools play 10 P5 games a yr. 9 conference and 1 non con. Prett sure its a rule That sounds right. I think every power conference...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

Teams should play at least 10 P5 games or expect to be penalized. Not to OMC this and make it all about my team but Northwestern played 11 Power 5 (+ND) teams in the regular season this year and has played at least 10 every season since 2012 (also played 11 that year). I completely agree. Unfortuna...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

lol I just think if we have this conference setup and all but 4 teams (I think) play in a division that leads to a championship, that championship should mean something. In basketball its an autobid to the NCAA tournament. Same thing here (at least for P5). It's just stupid to make some special acc...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

They're literally the only team in the Power 5 that pretty much isn't allowed to lose a game. Everyone else gets a freebie extra game at the end if they're good enough to be in contention. I'd say that's plenty enough of a disadvantage without rigging the seedings of a playoff for no real reason. C...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

Yeah I love going this route and that structure. I would put some sort of condition though that the G5 team has to be in the top 20 or something to get a bid, otherwise its a 3rd at large team. I realize that this could make it so that the committee can artificially rank a G5 team lower to keep the...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

An 8 team playoff is the most obvious thing ever. The five Power 5 champs, one G5 selection, and two at-large selections. I've said it a million times on this board and I'm convinced it would be glorious. You have the four quarter final games all on New Years Day. They can rotate access bowls. A hy...

Ron Rivera is getting fired. They might as well get rid of Cam too. He has the look of a guy that's on the precipice of free falling from mediocre to completely useless.

That Miami play was absolutely insane.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Like would be in love with where this team was going because of the hot finish? Because the offense was really, really good for a longer stretch than it was bad last year. The bad offense is more recent though and sticks in our minds. I still think we are closer to the really good up to August offe...

Every Cub fan goes right to Darvish as a big mistake, but at least he'd been pretty healthy post-TJS. Signing walking medical bill Morrow is looking dumber by the day.

Bet Theo would love a redo on the Q/Eloy trade. Yikes.

I'm never going to complain about the Chapman trade because we won the title, but he paid like 130 cents on the dollar for him too.

But as bad as the defense is there's no room for confidence against (checks notes) the best team in college football history Yep. I've never seen a more dominant team in my life. They are exceptional on both sides of the ball. Oddly, the 2016 Bama team that didn't quite finish the job in the title ...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

Both playoff games open with double digit point spreads. Yawn The semifinals have been mostly ass in the playoff era (last year's Rose Bowl a huge exception). I'd take the points in both these games, though. OU's defense is bad, but Bama just gave up 28 points in 3 quarters to Georgia before the Bu...

He has a great reputation as an offensive coach (he's only going to be their OC). It's a pretty decent gamble for SC. If it doesn't work everyone's fired anyway.

I don't follow the Bulls much at all, but how are GarPax still around? How many coaches do they get to hire/fire? This is Boylan's second stint as coach, right?

Andy, how does ND stack up against Clemson? For whatever reason I’ve not seen a snap of Irish football this year.
