Re: College Football - Bowl Games

I would also seed the P5 champs and G5 team 1-6 and the wild cards automatically 7-8. If you don't want to play Bama in the first round, win your conference. Also, ND doesn't want to be seeded 7th or 8th or thinks its unfair that they have less of a chance of making it to the playoff? Join a confer...

Oh god the "centrists" are here. Now I hope Bryce Harper goes to the Brewers except they loan him out to the Cardinals whenever they're playing us. Good for the Brewers if they get him. You guys are pretending the Cubs haven't spent money on this team. They have the #1 payroll in the Nati...

Anyone win or lose in fantasy because of that Seattle defensive TD? There's a fantasy league at my work and the guy who sits next to me outscored everyone by at least 100 points this year but was the 3 seed because the top-3 all went 10-3 and he lost to the other two. He's playing the weakest of the...

Re: 2018-19 NBA Thread

Rudy Gobert got tossed in less than 3 minutes tonight. He got called for a foul on the opening tip (can’t remember the last time I’ve seen that) and then was posting up Harden, gave him a little bump and Harden flopped for Gobert’s second foul. Knocked over some water at the scorers table and yelled...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

Are the New Years Six required to pick the next highest teams after the bowl affiliations or did they willingly give us 4 SEC teams? I’d much rather see Washington St or WVU in there instead of Florida or LSU. They have to take the highest ranked teams. Except for the conference-tied Rose and Sugar...

Re: 2018-19 NBA Thread

So I’m watching Lakers-Mavs and DeAndre Jordan goes to the free throw line. The graphic says he’s shooting 77% from the line this year. I think, surely this must be a typo. This is a dude who only shot over 50% from the line twice in 10 years and topped out at 58%. Check basketball reference and yep...

Circumstances are a bit different this year than 2014.

Not saying it won't happen but I think OSU would have to look a lot better than OU to jump them.

Assuming BAMA, Clemson and ND win out, Oklahoma still gets in over Ohio St, right? Pretty good chance IMO, but you never know with the committee. OU wouldn't have any wins as impressive as this one and their defense is really really awful. On the other hand, Purdue and Maryland. Yeah, without havin...
