Yup. Upsets galore. The LSU Bama game was epic. It all came down to a single play. My wife has been rubbing my nose in it. I don't do trash talk, so she can have that. It's extremely difficult to watch the game with someone who doesn't even understand the concept of a snap. Then, to lose on top of it all? Wasn't much of a night.

Who could have seen the drubbing Clemson got coming?

Well shit!

The Cats made it too interesting in the first half, falling behind 31 - 10. They won the second half 17 - 3 and were driving for a touchdown that would have tied the score when they ran out of gas and time, losing 34 - 27. Bijon Robinson is a load, a can't miss NFL prospect IMO.

Texas has TCU next. That will most definitely be an interesting matchup.

Jason, sorry about the Tide losing. I'll bet Tommy is happy.

He's not the type to talk shit either, and bless him for that.

Yes, it's a bitter loss. But, it's only a football game. One exception. The "kick six" game against Auburn and I was perpetually pissed off for a week . Only time in my life. I still cannot understand what the thinking was on that play.

I remember that well. I was watching that game. Possibly the most amazing turn of events I've ever seen in a college football game.

The Bama Miami national championship. Bama safety chases Miami WR to about the 10 yard line, takes the ball away from him and runs it all the way back for a score.

Didn’t expect Georgia Tech to play as well as they are against North Carolina.

It's going to be crazy picking 4 teams for the playoffs. Osu/Michigan will knock one of them. Then LSU/GA will probably knock another out. That's 2 of the top 5. They could potentially have to go to 7 or 8. If TN loses to SC, who is currently whipping rockytops asses, All bets are off.

It sure isn't going to be the same 4 teams. That's for sure.
