re: For those who support a 12+ team CFB playoff… - CrippleCreek
[quote]Right now Bama, Clemson, OU and OSU are essentially penciled in every year. The recruits know this obviously and that plays into their decision on which school to "take their talents" to. [/quote] People always cite this as the problem, but it has very little to do with the playoff only be...

re: Do you prefer the new NBA Playoff Format vs the Old style? - CrippleCreek
The 9-10 seeds fading way way back in the standings has really ramped up with the flattening of the lottery odds, and this helps avoid that a bit. One of the first years of the flattened odds the Mavericks traded everybody with a pulse other than Doncic to tank a .500 team at the deadline. They’d...

re: The Challenge Season 36: Double Agents (Premieres 12/9) - CrippleCreek
I think it’s more likely, based on what we did see, that the lie is that they were only given a 5 minute head start on day 2. I think they got the real time differential. Otherwise they should have been able to show them in-frame with everybody else at some point on day 2, right?...

re: The Challenge Season 36: Double Agents (Premieres 12/9) - CrippleCreek
Unless they gave the group a horrible edit, it looked like CT skated because the group with an iron-clad grip on the game were dumb as bricks, and CT won what, 3?, eliminations. Other than the double elimination; which didn’t even work out because Devin lost anyway, I didn’t feel like there was ...

re: This year’s Bama vs last year’s LSU - CrippleCreek
Comparing these teams is as difficult and hypothetical as comparing 2019 LSU to a team from the 70s. The sport was not the same. Alabama’s season was one of the most unbelievable organizational accomplishments of all time. How they stack up on a football field, who knows. Practice, preparation, a...

re: Dabo Swinney doesn't think Ohio State should make the playoff - CrippleCreek
There is no middle in any conference because of the schedules. A 4-4 sec team is normally 8-4, ranked, and propping up the strength of record for the top teams. That team is 4-6 and sucks this season. Even LSUs dumpster fire year would have a good shot at 7-5 and looking plain down, rather tha...

re: Louisiana COVID-19 - August 11, 2020 Update: 133,125 cases - 4195 deaths - 1,568,564 tests - CrippleCreek
Based on what they said about yesterday’s testing/case reporting anomaly, the numbers are falling off a cliff if they’ve captured all of the cases for a 4 day period in the last 3 reports. ...

re: Tickets look cheaper for SEC championship this year - CrippleCreek
Very few people could get tickets to the Texas or Bama games. There wasn’t a big neutral site trip this year. LSU hasn’t made this game since 2011, and the conference championship still matters. There are going to be a ton of LSU people going to this game. Neither (still not official) particip...

re: Crazy stat re: Joe Burrow - CrippleCreek
The stats v. eye test just shows me that the scheme isn’t very QB friendly still. He definitely can and must improve his completion percentage, but I think it is a bit unreasonable to expect 60+ with what they’re running and the throws he is making. He starts putting up those numbers, and LSU...

re: NCAA agrees to reopen Fulton case, decision on eligibility expected soon - CrippleCreek
I’d bet on it being the chain of custody information referenced in reports that has gotten very little play compared to the equity of the length of the suspension. It could allow the ncaa to overturn the suspension on a technical issue without dealing with changing any actual rules. That infor...

re: For everyone blowing on CEO and Ensminger at the presser today - CrippleCreek
That people really believe Ed gives a single solitary frick about LSU is just mind-boggling. He spun a yarn to get a job he had no business getting. O is a disaster in general, but his bull shite dream job narrative is by far the worst part. He’s nothing but a snake-oil salesman and a liar....

re: Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi Discussion Thread ***SPOILERS*** - CrippleCreek
I’m pretty amazed so many people give a shite about Snoke. He’s the ominous bigger bad. Protege has to defeat him to become the true big-bad in IX. He serves Kylos story. And Luke sacrificed himself for hope while demonstrating a degree of control and harnessing the force to a degree we have n...

re: Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi Discussion Thread ***SPOILERS*** - CrippleCreek
Everybody’s bitching about Snoke but what did we really know about the Emporer when the OT ended? Also lol at everyone trusting that Kylos words to Rey while trying to seduce her to his side are trustworthy. They probably aren’t. And even if they are, this could very well be Kylo’s story in the e...

re: What we learned from opening at 19 - CrippleCreek
[quote]They will have to answer the question of whether a two-loss team with two extremely quality wins deserves to be in. They can't just ignore it. Currently, there is no precedent for that situation in the CFP era.[/quote] You mean other than the extremely analogous situation presented by Pe...

re: Massive Reduction in Piped-In Music - CrippleCreek
People don't want to hear it, but starting any later than about 5:30 is a terrible idea with respect to attendance for anything but a marquee game. The total time investment with traffic and TV run-times has made the "traditional" 7pm start time a complete non-starter. I'd guess 4th quarter at...

re: Guess the Attendance - CrippleCreek
[quote] Also, its the opener and there is way more hope and optimism regarding the season and the opener.[/quote] LSU was in the middle of beating the hell out of everyone and had the overwhelming Heisman favorite on the team when that happened. There may well be more people, but that's just n...

re: Logistically speaking, places that LSU/BYU cannot be played if the start time is unchanged - CrippleCreek
Foley acted in the best interest of his university and their football team. The situations are completely different. That this situation is being handled in a different way should be no surprise and bitching about it makes lsu fans look silly....

re: Game of Thrones S7E6: "Beyond The Wall", HODORS ONLY (No Book Readers) - CrippleCreek
The Night King is just a horrible, lazy, Marvel-level big bad. If next week is all south of the wall, they will have failed to accomplish the most important task facing the show to shift him from an avatar to a character. And worse yet it looks like they won't even try....

re: Game of Thrones is Becoming Too Predicable [SPOILERS] - CrippleCreek
The set-pieces are huge, yes, but I see a difference between the set-pieces and the story. Hardhome is the culmination of the human story of Jon/Nights Watch/Freefolk. If the ultimate antagonist is the night king, he isn't really a character as much as an avatar. That's not good....

re: Game of Thrones is Becoming Too Predicable [SPOILERS] - CrippleCreek
I think that's a huge problem for both the TV and book sagas. Huge numbers of people were drawn in to the fantasy saga for people who don't really like the magical/fantasy elements. As the story has unraveled and magic has become more and more prevalent and is now looking like the ultimate end-ga...
