re: College leaders ready to discuss a plan for an 8-team playoff by 2020. - JoeHackett
[quote]An 8 game playoff isnt going to have the effect a 68 team playoff does in basketball. Not even close.[/quote] My fear is that the same logic for expanding to 8 will inevitably lead to expanding to 16. My larger point though is that expanding doesn't necessarily lead to more games of meanin...

re: College leaders ready to discuss a plan for an 8-team playoff by 2020. - JoeHackett
[quote]Just want more meaningful football[/quote] I don't think expanding the playoff gives us more meaningful football, just different games become meaningful. College basketball is basically just a tournament. Obviously seeding matters but nobody lives and dies with regular season games. The...

re: Would you be opposed to changing the college football extra point? - JoeHackett
[quote]Please God, don't do this. Im an Alabama fan[/quote] Bama isn't going to make them anyway. This rule would just force Saban to go for 2, which would probably work out in his favor. Plus it would bring everyone else down closer to Bama's level, negating the only advantage anyone has over th...

re: Ravens call Patrick Ricard's racist tweets 'unacceptable' - JoeHackett
It must be nice being one of these people who have never said a bad word in their entire lives, never said something when they were a kid they wouldn't say as an adult, and have so much free time they can search through people's twitter accounts for fun. They get to wield their moral authority a...

re: Chris Collinsworth is really falling off as a commentator - JoeHackett
I swear 90% of that job is just sounding right. All of those guys are doing impressions of one another. Most of the time you don't even know what they're saying, so as long as they have the right sound they stay employed. When you stop and listen to what they're actually saying, it's mostly clich...

[quote]Those numbers are so outrageous I feel like they need to be fact checked. [/quote] I didn't believe the Aaron Rodgers one at all... turns out Peterman's TD/INT ratio is 1:4 Rodgers has thrown 330 TDs. So he would need 1320 INTs to equal Peterman. He's thrown 79. 1320-79=1241 Just ...

re: NBC-SNF flexing out two games - JoeHackett
[quote]That's why SNF is better than MNF. They can flex it out so people actually watch it. 49ers/Seahawks and Steelers/Raiders are absolute dog shite games.[/quote] Which makes that fact that ESPN pays about twice as much per year than NBC does crazy. 1.75 billion vs 950 million. And ESPN doe...
