I guess I don't follow it much.


For a few years now everyone complained that the best way to get to #1 was to let the top 4 Battle it out, it gives everyone a chatch except that Alabama seems to kick everyone's ass... :evil:

The Semi Finals are at the Cotton Bowl and the Orange Bowl Dec 29, with the winners playing in the National Championship in Santa Clara at Levi Stadium Jan 7...if Notre Dame makes it I am seriously debating biting the bullet and buying a ticket... :shock:


Good thing you'll be saving some money then. :)

I have always followed college ball, I actually find the games generally more entertaining since the competition is more closely matched... :idea:

That is true some Teams are totally out matched but for the most part the top ranked teams can beat each other on any given day... :idea:

Saints lose. Rams are number one seed. For now.

Two road games coming up for the Rams.

Lions! No tigers, but Bears!

Well if Georga beats Alabama and Pitt beats Clemson, Notre Dame moves to Number 1 without lacing up their shoes... :idea:

Losing by two touchdowns to a sub .500 team playing their second string quarterback who had never won an NFL game before and without their star wide receiver is being competitive? You are a very forgiving fan. Where do you think the Raiders will play next year? Derek Carr is lobbying for Fresno. :lol:

Hold on there my fine friend, they were competitive yesterday but turn overs did them in, they were within one score with with 4 minutes left and did not get it done and the Bengals have had some tough loses but have beaten some top teams, the Raiders also beat the Steelers and gave KC a run for their money and if it wasn't for some sketchy calls may have won that game...BTW they are working on sharing Levi Stadium next Season by request of the NFL... :?

Fair enough. They have been better lately which made their losing to the Bengals more disappointing. I heard the NFL wants to know by January where they are going to play in 2019. It will be interesting.

I just heard AT&T Park (where the Giants play) is a possibility.

All of those couldn't even get them a touchdown. It would be nice if another team could get to the finals. But Alabama is already up 28 in the first half. So, ho hum, another repeat of the last two years.

Well I accept the better Team won, the questionable calls in the first half at pivotal moments made it impossible to compete... :idea:

:cry:

The stretcher came out for a Cowboys player, tonight.
They only replayed it once because of the graphic injury to the ankle.
It looked like a compound break to me.

There’s been more of those lately. Alex Smith earlier this year in football and Gordon Hayward and Paul George in basketball over the last few years.

I saw it also, when RG came over not long afterward as I was describing what happened I suggested it was a compound fracture, he was obviously in extreme pain... :(
