Any idea when we'll know which side of the CWS bracket we'll be on. As in, would we in theory play Game 11 or Game 12?

I can't post the picture, but I got the funniest Christmas gift ever! An outfit for the national championship: an elephant thong getting a BJ from Saban (a picture of him yelling, stapled to it), with a new LSU gameday shirt on top. To make it better: from my in-laws (an Auburn family).

Wow. 7 of 20 (35%) is exactly what I'm saying. And that doesn't count other short runs.
EDITED TO ADD: 10 of 20 (50%!!!) less than 5 yards. Wow again.
Most FBS backs could punch in 7 TDs from 2 yards behind a top class O-line.
Back out 7 "easy" TDs and 13 isn't Heisman worthy.

A) Still not stats bro.
B) Not comparing him to LSU backs on long runs.
Look, I don't see Bama games in full... but I see every highlight on TV. Most highlights are punch it in, punch it in. Just like your Georgia Southern game last night, he has three TDs all from 4 yards out (including a wid...

Talking TD runs. Bamers - don't react emotionally. 20 TDs is great. But with an incredible O-line like Bama has, every single one of our backs could punch it in for 1-2 yards.
And yes... he gains a lot of yards on long runs. But let's not name him a Heisman finalist just by saying he now has mor...

How would the computers rank an FCS school? Like the App State argument after they beat Michigan - they could have also beat the bottom 50% of the FBS.

They've played two ranked teams and we've played five (at the time). Are their passing rank (2nd nationally) and scoring rank (also 2nd) factors in the computer love fest?
