  1. JRAD....???

    This 12 minute long Althea will provide a fair representation of what has been well-articulated above.
  2. Sounded so Sweet

    I’ve been on a mid-70’s Eyes kick lately. To invoke a bit if T4T’s thought: INSPIRATION sources ebb and flow, of course. Your thread makes me think of Boston 1993. I bobbed and weaved to Black Peter, and then mostly chilled for OMSN. I recall that Taper Ted got a kick outta the fact that everyone in the place was the opposite (except for him, always minding the DAT lol). The soulfulness of the Peter just moved me at the time. Literally.

    Teacher Matt: “I really believe they won’t do that...” Regarding ND winning out. Apologies if interpreting what you “really believe” does not equate to you confidently believing it. Anyhoo, I hope that whatever unfolds is an enjoyable experience for you. Take it from me, it can still be fun even if you don’t win em all.

    I respectfully disagree with a whole lot of this. The revolution that you speak of will certainly be occurring with fans, but no such revolt will take place with the current structure. They JUST all decided to do it this way. And they all JUST decided to give Notre Dame a seat at the table. So while many may not like it, I’m just not seeing it be this “take our ball and going home” approach by the men who run the thing. Prop up the Committee (Ohio State’s AD is on it, btw - an ND grad), and let the Committee pick the top four teams. That was the choice. I suspect you were cool with the Committee’s opinion last year pertaining to aOSU and the Playoffs, yes? Despite the evidence of how it worked out, that decision seemed to be the right one based on what would likely happen on the field. I also suspect you weren’t too worried about PSU fans because the decision favored your favorite team lol. it can be hard to remain objective. But I doubt we see the level of reaction you predict from the governors of the playoff structure. Don’t worry too much, though. If ND loses as you so confidently (not sure about your confidence level but keep telling yourself that) predict, then they will be out of the top four. And then you can move on to hoping that both OU and Clemson lose.

    Yeah, I’m sure your quite subdued with your fanaticism. And I peeked in on your thread last month about the kickoff and the show time and the whole discussion, Matt. Insightful. So anyway, we accept your challenge. If you are in the playoffs when the season ends, we’ll perhaps see who is better on the field this year. I hope you guys find a way to make it to the top four. I think you have a shot.

    Tough to pick on Penn State and in the same breath point to them as your biggest win. And the score matters in the Wiscy analysis, but not in the Penn State win? You’re right that Penn State is (was) overrated, but aOSU just gave up 38 to those guys. But an upward trending, disrespected aOSU is formidable, no doubt. Urbie is the second best coach on the planet. It will indeed be interesting to see if the B1G can get a team in at all. Clemson is their primary problem and opportunity. If ND wins out they’re in with that three slot to start. Your general position about Bama already being a lock for the playoffs is not objective enough, imo. The outcomes of the games played do matter lol. And who you beat matters (see ND, Clemson, OU, Wiscy, and Miami). Bama at two right now is right, imo as well. They have played no one. The eyeball test is valid, but not before actually proving it on the field a bit. Let’s not just include them on the recent decade of dominance. It will end at some point you know? (When will Saban retire already lol?!) Having said that, they are scary good and will be really fired up now and I trust will handle everyone they play, including Georgia. If I had to pick a team to win it all it would be Bama without a doubt, BUT...their resume at this snapshot in time is weak. They’ll have ample opportunity to prove it and I trust they will.
  7. Think you know your Bird Songs?

    Well, I did up until about 5 minutes ago.

    Absolutely correct, they do. But humans and biases and opinions and feelings are involved. At least the final four format allows it to be solved head-to-head on the field (for the most part).

    Youre gonna be one sad bro, my bro. And it could be “Hold me, I’m Irish” complex showing, but I can’t help but feel like I’m being a bit baited here. Please explain how getting waxed to Oklahoma at home and beating no one else of significance equates to aOSU being better than ND? I’ll hang up and listen.
  10. I’m moving to Massachusetts. Not really the reason, but I do happen to start a new gig in downtown Boston in two weeks. For anyone who gives a rip and is paying attention, I shall maintain my current handle as homage to my adoration for the Sonoran Desert. Even though I’m pulling a rare, pre-winter, reverse-goin’ where the climate suits my clothes maneuver. Not for amateurs. As we were negotiating the deal, they began by offering for me to start after the first of the year. I said, “no, I would prefer to start on November 13”. Once winter tour was announced and no dip into AZ, action had to be taken. So anyway, I’m stoked about the whole thing and shall see some of you up yonder.

    Indeed on both of these sentiments. ^^^^^

    Of course it's not. I was just playin around. Your sarcasm meter needs new batteries.
