Re: Bowl Season

The difference between Alabama and Notre Dame’s performances was plain to see. Alabama had 440 yards of offense but sputtered in the red zone and it cost them the game. Notre Dame had 240 yards and never had a chance. Not seeing the difference is just ignorance About as ignorant as pollsters who th...

Re: Bowl Season

For those who said Notre Dame had no business in hen playoffs we can now say that Alabama had no business being their, either. Much as I dislike Bama, they earned their spot as a conf. champ. Which as Ohio State and Washington will tell you is not an automatic qualifier. If ND was dismissed after t...

Scary thing about Clemson is that most of their key offensive skill position players are freshman or sophomores.
With respect to all that Nick Saban has accomplished I believe it is safe to say Clemson is the top program in the country.

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

Where does this loss rate as far as Bears playoff losses? Here is my list from what I perceive as worst first: 1. 2010 NFC Championship game L 21-14 to Green Bay. This will be known as the game that Jay Cutler hurt is knee and Bears fans wound up pining for Caleb Hanie...for why I have no idea. Most...

Parkey's contract still makes me puke.
Unless the kicker is in the Adam Vinatierri class there is no excuse for giving any kicker a contract that cannot easily be walked away from.

At least the Bears players won't miss the Pro Bowl in Orlando. Why is this game even played any more? Does anybody here actually watch it? I believe the last one I saw involved Walter Payton.

And Trubisky was too little too late on moving the ball at all.
Wonder why Nagy took so long to exploit the Eagle secondary. Of course this is the same coach who thought it a good idea to send in Khalil Mack for a two-point conversion play with their season on the line.

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

The entire Bears organization deserves this. For management for not addressing what everybody knew was a horrific place kicking season earlier in the year. I do not care how much money Parkey was owed. Was it worth losing this entire season just to keep him around? Nagy deserved this for not having ...

Please allow me to clarify that my desire for the Bears to have drafted Deshaun Watson was made during my younger and foolish days.

.The Flyer fans I have spoke with are saying that the school is still being told that they will not be allowed to petition up anymore. Their new two year enrollment cycle number is 1262 which for 2018 would of put them as the second largest team among the 32 class 5A postseason qualifiers. Looking ...

Honest question for everyone: how would you feel about the BCS formula being used to determine the playoff participants rather than a committee?

Until Oklahoma decides that defense matters too they will never win a championship. It’s why Oregon never won a championship in their heyday.

Re: Bowl Season

Let's go back to January 1 2018. Oklahoma leads Georgia 31-14 after scoring a few seconds before halftime. Inexplicably the Oklahoma kicker drills the ball into the UGA front line on the kickoff, allowing UGA to complete a quick pass before drilling a long FG to cut the lead to 31-17 at half. UGA ra...

Had this discussion with Reggie offline, now I'm wondering what the rest of you think. The media is saying these kids are "electing to sit out bowl games in favor of the draft".
