    I think Bama would not only have to lose but they would have to get crushed to not make it. Something like 42-10. If it's like 28-27 dawgs I think Bama will be fine.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    If there is a way for Bama to get in with one loss, it's going to happen. The NCAA is praying for a Bama win or an OK loss.

    I think the Dawgs would have to humiliate Bama for them to not get in.

    Thatís unlikely.

    (UGA class of Ď01 here, by the way ...)

    Kept switching back and forth between UCF / Memphis and Alabama / Georgia. Two very entertaining football games.

    I was rooting for Georgia as well but really did we want the possibility of a Alabama-v-Georgia pt3? Here's hoping that the playoff selection committee picks OU and not OSU. The Buckeyes are actually a better team than OU but I don't like seeing OSU win so much as an all-day lollipop.

    I think the committee will pick Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Oklahoma. The way it's looking the last few years, the B1G Champeen has to be undefeated to make the playoff.

    Expect a few rumblings for expansion to 8 teams to start sounding in the media.

    Folded in the second half. If you had told me that Tua would have the stats he had, I’d have told you to bet the farm on Georgia.

    Dammit.

    I assume Oklahoma/Georgia in some New Years Day bowl.

    Hey Vic, I just saw that the Badgers are playing the 'Canes in one of the 3rd rate bowls this year on Dec 27th (The Pinstripe Bowl at Ronmac, er, Yankee Stadium).

    Yeah I heard about it. Didn't the Badgers beat us up in a bowl not too long ago?

    I'm surprised that there is still so many bowl games. Every time I watch one of those mid-to-late December bowl games the attendance is maybe a third of stadium capacity.

    It's a rematch of last years Orange Bowl, & we only won by 10. This one should be close I think.

    Urban is retiring post-Rose Bowl, Day takes over Jan 2. Sad to see him go, but that cyst on the brain has to be a major issue. At 54, is he really done, though?

    I think they'll be fine with Day, as long as he can keep up the standard of recruiting that tOSU is accustomed to.
    He did not know that the sword he'd hold, would turn his priceless empire into fool's gold...

    What a strange career for Meyer. I still don't quite get the Florida exit, and now this. How much of this is health and how much is the stuff with the asst coach play into it? Is this purely Meyer voluntarily stepping down or did OSU nudge him out the door?

    1) He says it's 100% health, and the cyst specifically. Claims he can't get as animated as he needs to properly motivate / kick his team in the ass, and if he can't coach as he needs to, he'd rather not coach at all.

    2) Not at all. I'd be shocked if the university didn't want him to stay, ideally.

    Well this is interesting. Missouri Tigers to get Clemson QB transfer Kelly Bryant.

    There are even more coming. The MAC just announced a tie in with a new bowl in Myrtle Beach South Carolina that is supposed to start either next year or the following year. There are still a few bowl eligible teams that did not get a bowl bid this year.
