The conference championship games are the most legitimate "championship" in college football. In August, every SEC team knows what they must do to get to Atlanta. No voting. No eye test. Just play football and see where you stand. No rankings. No politics....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

At the end of the day, if you or family use it and enjoy it, buy it, but don't expect to make a significant amount of money on this venture. If everyone gets along and shares it, it's a great multi-generational gift from you. If squabbles breakout over decor, "my week", etc, it can be ugly a...

QB: Why did JJ not live up to hype? - makersmark1 on 11/26/15 at 10:44 am
I'm mystified how someone so athletic can go from playing so well against Arkansas last year in the first half to what we saw early this year. I don't have deep football knowledge, but it just shocked me how far he regressed. Is it: A. JJ was never really that talented B. JJ never develope...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (17)

re: Auburn University Graduate numbers vs Bama graduates. - makersmark1 on 11/25/15 at 6:19 am
I have degrees from both, but how would CFB exist if it was just grads? Being a fan does not require a background check. Elementary schools and prisons are full of all kinds of fans. Can I be an Andrew Lloyd Webber fan? I can't read music. This is silly. Many teams have fans who are not ide...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]another 180K on a new QB[/quote] I agree. We could have a 350,000 head coach and buy a really talented team because all the X's and O's won't win as many games as the jimmies and the joes.
