A self described conservative lived 2013 as an "Obama Year." Went to Democratic meetings, interacted with progressive causes, etc. Only thing off limits to him was pro-abortion causes. He comes to the same conclusion that I am starting to come to.
It's just not worth it.

Take the BCS rankings, seed them 1-16. Higher seed hosts first and second round, semis and finals rotate among bidded cities.
Top 16 in the BCS qualify UNLESS a conference or division champion is ranked 17-25 in the BCS. If a team wins their conference or division and manages to get into the BCS...

Missouri is going to beat Auburn in the SEC Championship. No way Auburn wins after that. Congrats Mizzou on your SEC Championship.
But, Michigan State is going to beat Ohio State, and we will have an FSU-Alabama national championship game while Missouri plays Central Florida in the Sugar Bowl.

1. Ole Miss has not won in Starkville since 2003 (MSU's worst team in history + Eli's Senior Year). The home team typically has an edge in this game, even as an underdog.
2. This game is the inverse of last year. State came in as the team that was 8-3 and had just dropped out of the Top 25, and O...
