re: MSU President announces CFP will be 5-7 instead of original 6-6 - Basura Blanco
[quote]Pac 12 is gone. The new format assumes that, so I was moving things around. I know the Pac 12 existed last year.[/quote] Got it. In that scenario though, Bama and Texas wouldn't both have byes in the new conference format either. ...

re: 12-team playoff in 2023 would've equalled a Georgia/Ole Miss rematch - Basura Blanco
[quote]We were much, MUCH better than them. The outcome almost surely would've been closer but we still would've won.[/quote] The only thing favoring Ole Miss was having two weeks of rest. Nothing against Ole Miss, but UGA was on a different level last year....

re: 12-team playoff in 2023 would've equalled a Georgia/Ole Miss rematch - Basura Blanco
[quote]They’ve said they’ll avoid rematches where possible.[/quote] They seemed to make a rather definitive set of criteria today that doesn't include that. It would also be weird to have the rankings/seeds shuffled after week 5 just to avoid a rematch. I am not saying they wont do this, and ...

re: What happened to big name Nascar sponsors? - Basura Blanco
[quote]You mean to tell me a sport w/35-40 events each year has higher ratings than one that has around 2,500 w/its regular season and playoffs? or 1 game a week, on sundays, for only 18 weeks, right? [/quote] Not sure what point you are trying to make, but the NFL has 14-16 games spread o...

[quote]20. App St @ 13. Iowa[/quote] I absolutely love college football and its really hard for someone to present ANY criteria that would diminish my adoration of the game. A playoff game in which 2023 App St and Iowa were auto qualifiers meets that criteria. In spades....

[quote]Only then to have three loss Clemson and Kansas State jump them and receive byes because they won the ACC and Big 12 to receive auto bids.[/quote] I guess the flip side to that is if we had beaten UGA in the SEC game in 2022, we would've gotten the bye over 1 one loss Ohio State. I am...

re: The lack of stat keeping ESPN does for College baseball - Basura Blanco
[quote]Y'all realize that even in the SEC a majority of schools lose money on baseball, right?[/quote] How many women's college basketball teams make money? I am not trying to make the argument that college baseball is more popular than WBB, but 95% of Div 1 female college teams run in the red. ...

[quote]but additionally, where does it say that the 5th champion gets the 5 seed? they get in the field, do they get the 5 seed?[/quote] It looks like only the top 4 conference champions get a bye and the top 4 seeds. The remaining teams are seeded strictly by CFP ranking. This all but guarantees...

re: Did Michigan show a new way to build a national championship team? - Basura Blanco
[quote]They'll have more players drafted than any other team in CFB and could set record for most players drafted in the modern draft.[/quote] I think this is equal parts talent and the sheer quantity of a lot of draft eligible seniors. And while I agree they had a ton of talent, I wouldn't call ...

Now that the LSU/A&M game is no longer on Thanksgiving weekend, I'm planning a late October trip to College Station. Say what you will about the aggies, but they are good hosts, they have a much better stadium after the latest remodel, and even College Station is no longer the military prison town ...
