| O-T Lounge|| What's the scene like at a Rockette's show? - Chicken on 12/8/14 at 12:45 pm|
So my buddy Kalunda (not his real name) stopped by yesterday to return my power washer and check out my new Christmas tree (my tree, which is real, is so perfect looking, he initially thought it was fake). Anyhow, we hadn't chatted in a while so we grabbed a few beers and went out to be back patio....
| More Sports Board|| Conspiracy Theory...Big 12 was shut out of playoffs to accelerate their demise? - Chicken on 12/7/14 at 2:29 pm|
For some time, there was talk about CFB evolving into four power conferences. At first, we thought the Big 12 was going to fold when Texas flirted with the Pac-12, and Texas A&M and Mizzou jumped ship to the SEC. Then, it looked like the ACC could fold when the Big Ten poached Maryland. But the A...
| More Sports Board|| If Ohio St is so good, why aren't they the 3rd seed? - Chicken on 12/7/14 at 1:10 pm|
If you can argue that Ohio state is better than both TCU and Baylor, how can Ohio State not be better than Florida State?
Florida State had the least impressive resume and had to struggle to win most of their games.
Best wins against Georgia Tech, Clemson and Louisville?...

At least according to Massey's Composite Poll page:
Scroll to bottom of page.
I believe the Big Ten was something like 6-11 against teams from the other Power 5 conferences (including Notre Dame)...
Maybe beating Michigan State and Wisconsin i...
| More Sports Board|| Ohio State only played two teams in current top 25... - Chicken on 12/6/14 at 11:34 pm|
They played Michigan State and Wisconsin. That's it.
TCU and Baylor played only two teams in Top 25 too, assuming Oklahoma drops out of Top 25.
TCU is only team of the three that didn't lose to a team outside the Top 25.
I think TCU deserves the spot. ...
| More Sports Board|| CFB Playoffs: A look at the Top 7 vs. Top 25 opponents - Chicken on 12/5/14 at 4:16 pm|
As I have already stated today, I think the best determination of a team's strength is how they did against [i]current[/i] Top 25 teams (and how they did against teams outside the Top 25). It isn't an exact science but a decent indicator. With that, I think that if Alabama, Oregon and Florida Stat...

A few things that jump out:
1. Jimbo Fisher (Florida State)...is 14th highest paid college coach...he is due for an increase and that is why you will hear his name mentioned this week...he is underpaid
| Coaching Changes|| Was told that Harbaugh may be interested in Michigan AD job too - Chicken on 12/3/14 at 8:15 pm|
Wants to be head coach and get the AD job. Who knows how reliable this is but take it for what it is worth.
Note: I have no clue how true this is. Probably is BS like most of the stuff posted around here. But it does seem like the best reason for a successful NFL coach to drop everything and m...

I was talking to my friend Larry (not his real name) about this scenario:
Let's say you are eating BBQ shrimp at Mr. B's and they bring you an extra loaf of bread for dipping that you don't need. It just sits in its bag untouched on the table. Do you think a homeless person would be offended if...

With just one week left is this marathon contest, it appears that ballums33857 has all but sealed the victory.
Jermelott, just two games back, has the best chance to catch ballums.
Tigerhawk, three games back, will need a miracle.
Sentimental favorite TigerLicks led most of the way, but h...
