re: Saban: We have a lot of players who don't know how to play Bama football - RollTide1987
He's politicking for a playoff spot. He might sit Tua against Mississippi State to show the committee he wasn't 100% against LSU, thus explaining his mediocre first half performance. The man is a political genius. ...

[quote]Wasn't the talk in '06 that Ohio State and Michigan were far and away the best teams and deserved a rematch for the title, and no other team stood a chance, right up until Florida beat the shite out of them?

[quote]If Oregon wins out and beats a very good Utah team, becoming conference champs with a better win than Bama they are in. [/quote] Not necessarily. If Auburn defeats Georgia they are 9-2 coming into the Iron Bowl against what is probably the toughest schedule in all of college football. Th...

[quote]Both smiths tds were mistakes[/quote] Smith's first TD was a trick play that fooled your whole defense while his second TD was just the DB being burned by a faster player on a go route. In both cases the covering DB couldn't keep up with Smith and that's why he got wide open. ...

[quote]Plenty of millennials are children of baby boomers too.[/quote] So what? "Baby Boomer" merely describes the newborn population boom in the aftermath of WWII. Our boys came home and screwed like rabbits because they were all so relieved to be alive. Generation X are the children of thos...

re: CFP Chair: “Baylor is 13 due to non conference schedule” - RollTide1987
[quote]What makes you so certain Bama has a better shot than those teams?[/quote] Recent history. Alabama is clearly among the most talented and well-coached teams in college football. Each time they have been given a mulligan, they have pulled through in dominant fashion. At the end of the...

re: CFP Chair: “Baylor is 13 due to non conference schedule” - RollTide1987
[quote]That isn't the point of the committee.[/quote] The point of the committee is to get the four best teams into the playoff, is it not? If it comes down to crunch time and you have the following scenario: 1. LSU (13-0) 2. Ohio State (13-0) 3. Clemson (13-0) Alabama (11-1) Or...

[quote]of course a Bama fan is arguing that Bama should be put in regardless of record or schedule[/quote] Record? Yeah. If we lose again...we're out. Schedule? If we beat Auburn on the road, Oregon has no right to be in ahead of us since they played the same Auburn team and lost. ...

re: CFP Chair: “Baylor is 13 due to non conference schedule” - RollTide1987
[quote]Is this really how you are arguing we should do this?[/quote] That's how the Committee has done it in the past. Their mandate is to select the four best teams. I'm sure when they are doing their final rankings, more than one will be asking the question: "Would Team A defeat Team B in a n...

re: CFP Chair: “Baylor is 13 due to non conference schedule” - RollTide1987
I think people are forgetting that the committee has proven time and again that they don't care about schedule so much as they care about the eye test. The committee has to ask themselves, all things being equal, who wins in a neutral site game with a month to prepare: Clemson or Minnesota? Alaba...

re: Here’s a timeline of Baby Boomers, Gen X, Millennials, and Gen Z - RollTide1987
Baby Boomer, Gen X, and Gen Z seem to be pretty set in stone as far as when they begin and end. However, no one seems to have a set beginning for the Millennial generation. I've seen graphs where the generation starts in 1980, 1983, and 1985. I've also seen one or two where the generation starts ...

re: BAMA getting penalized for it’s CRAPPY schedule & rightfully so - RollTide1987
[quote]Wow. Tell me more[/quote] I did. If Tennessee finishes 7-5, that win looks better than it did a month ago. If Auburn upset Georgia, and Alabama beats Auburn three weeks from now, that's a win over a Top 10 team on the road. Oregon/Utah won't be able to claim a similar status. ...
