Is that the one where Hitler has a withered hand? I remember seeing a few minutes of that (or something) when I was a kid and all I remember is Hitler at a podium hiding his hand in his coat.

Cool stadium, but the very flat bowl that allows 92,000 people and good field illumination so long as the sun is still above the San Gabriel mountains also makes for a lot of sound escaping the stadium and distant sight lines for the furthest seats. The facilities are also lacking for a modern stadi...

You're not wrong in a wide-open playoff format. However, most that I've seen are advocating for the Big 5 champions, the highest ranked non Big 5 champion, and two at-large teams not from the same conference. This year that would give us a first round of:
1 Bama vs 8 Boise
2 Oregon vs 7 Miss St...

[quote][quote]In my opinion, the bowl games for Clemson, Georgia Tech, and TCU were their biggest games of the season - their Super Bowls. Or the closest they'd get to one (in TCU's case).
