Now there's one I wouldn't have guessed.  Texas hires 'Bama OC Steve Sarkisian as HC.

Yes, Texas A&M should have been in, they would have been a more worthy opponent than ND.
As much as I hate Ohio State, I sure hope Justin Fields is 100%, it wouldn't be right otherwise.

Bet the over, and be prepared for a late night next Monday.  Look for the winner by way of last offensive possession or overtime.

The A&M team that lost by 28 to Bama in the regular season?

Actually, you might be right...

...I may be crazy.  For sure the Aggies played pissed off last night.  That second half was brutal.  
Would love to see A&M v ND, Touchdown Jesus vs The 12th Man.

And again, the boys in Vegas better juice the over/under for next Monday, that's going to be a HUGE prop bet.

Iowa State absolutely dominated Oregon to take the Fiesta Bowl.

Don't look at the basketball team, though...

Harblow gets a 4 year extension at Michigan. WTF. It was like he was trying to get fired this year. Can you be any more incompetent and keep your coaching job?

What 'Bama did to Ohio State last night was obscene.  Although at first I was afraid my main proposition (bet the over) was going into the toilet. But both teams eventually responded. And as much as I hate admitting it, Saban is the GOAT, no denying it now.

Those early season games are ripe for upsets. As much as it pains me to type this, GO U!

Where is everyone on expanding the playoffs?  I think I'm in favor, not because of it being a better way to determine a champion, but the bowl concept seems to have run its course.

You can't go to any more than four teams, just think of all the classroom time lost!

Seriously though, 8 is the perfect number, that would encompass all of the champions from the power 5 conferences, one rep from the non power 5, and two at large teams.   This has been true for the last 15 years, at least.

I'm in favor of expanding to 8 or even 16 teams.  You pull it off by putting everyone in a conference and none of games vs pansies at the start of the season.  You chance a conference champ like this year's NFC East, but such is conference play.   And enough of "it won't work"- Division 2 has been doing it for years.

I'd like to see more than 8 teams.  I think the FCS (1-AA) system of eight seeded and 16 unseeded seems a good format. That's 24 teams getting into post-season action and the fans getting something more meaningful than the modern bowl games.
