Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Which doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things because if they don't move another $20+ million this will be their 3rd consecutive year over and the penalties start getting really ridiculous. EDIT: And they just blew most of that on Joe Kelly. The Dodgers were under the tax line last year...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

The only benefit of an 8 team playoff is to the non P5 school if they were guaranteed a spot which seems...uncertain. It would be much more logical to make sure every 3 loss SEC team automatically makes it.

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

I’m not sure how the 860 yards Ole Miss tacked up against Louisiana-Monroe is really relevant either. Counting total yards and ranking teams accordingly is beyond archaic. You’re already backing off with the SEC schedule caveat. Of course if you limited their offense to the ranked SEc teams they ave...

Man, I dunno. Oklahoma has a terrific offense, but Bama can really strangle teams at times.

Both playoff games open with double digit point spreads. Yawn so the Sooners should be able to score enough to at least cover. Man, I dunno.

Re: Week 13: Bears at Giants, Sunday at noon on Fox

I see Nagy has Lovie’s ability to take timeouts that strategically aid the opponent What was the point of that timeout? Was the defense call not correct or something?

They are. But you can’t justify it based on the current metrics the committee uses.
