  1. 2017 NFL Season

    Just throw a back-corner fade there. If you hit on it, great; if he’s covered, chuck it out of the back corner and make your field goal.

    Neither Ohio State nor Alabama was deserving of a shot in the playoff. Both had chances to assemble a good resume and blew them. Neither would be in the discussion if USC won at Washington State or Notre Dame. The difference between the two, in my eyes, is this: Alabama's resume did not necessary qualify themselves for inclusion. But Ohio State's loss at Iowa (with a loss to a playoff team already there) was disqualifying.

    UofA basketball might have something to do with why they're a more realistic choice than CU.

    Or, perhaps, losing by 31 to a 7-5 Iowa team and having four wins over remotely good teams, none of which beat anyone worthwhile in non-conference play, doesn’t produce as good of a resume as people think it does? Ohio State had three top-15/16 wins. The rest of Ohio State’s schedule was… awful. Michigan was a half-decent team, but their next-best win is Army. Indiana, Nebraska, Maryland, Rutgers, UNLV and Illinois are all awful football teams. Sure, Ohio State played some good teams, but half their schedule was a cakewalk. It’s not a particularly deserving resume when it includes a 31-point loss to a 7-5 team.

    Oh, absolutely — I wasn’t arguing that Alabama should be viewed differently, but I think it’s funny how much of all of this is somewhat out of their control. My suggestion to improve college football is to dump conference championship games, eliminate divisions, and let everyone schedule 13 games. You get rid of the “same conference but play once every six years” crap, and let teams be judged based on what they’ve really done, not the poorly setup conference championship game system we have now. Plus, I think you’d see more big non-conference games — schools could get to the seven home games they want with only one “buy” game. I think some schools would try to shoehorn an eighth home game, but most would take the opportunity to add a big home-and-home or neutral-site game.

    So, quick aside that I think is interesting: Georgia will go to the playoff because it won its conference, and nobody will find fault with that. Yet Georgia and Alabama effectively had the same regular season — each went 11-1, with a loss at Auburn. Because Georgia is located east of some arbitrary line, they got a second chance, and took advantage of it. Because Alabama is located west of some arbitrary line, their season might be over, despite doing little different than Georgia did. I think that’s kind of weird. (Death to divisions!)

    If the committee was actively trying to get Ohio State in, don’t you think it would rank Ohio State ahead of Notre Dame right now?

    FourFourTwo has the scoop on the NWSL’s FC Kansas City folding / relocating to Salt Lake, with RSL’s owners buying the club / an expansion team. I said this on Twitter earlier, but I’m going to roll my eyes every time from here on out that Sporting KC tries to argue that Kansas City is “Soccer City USA,” given they had a chance to keep women’s soccer in the community and, after years of talking about maybe kinda being interested in NWSL, decided to balk. Hate to see any team move or leave a market, but I’m of the opinion that the women’s game is better off with more ambitious ownership. This takes the league to the four sides that are owned alongside MLS clubs (Houston, Orlando, Portland, Salt Lake), plus North Carolina, whose owner is also particularly committed. It will be interesting to see where the league goes, now that a majority of owners are willing to spend more.

    UEFA's qualification setup is absolutely horrible -- Italy have a good group stage, but because the FIFA World Rankings are awful, were drawn in the same group as Spain. They should've never been subjected to the playoff in the first place (which, to be fair, they should have done better in).

    Not entirely sure who it would be, but since we're guessing things, I do believe that Grand Canyon is currently the only for-profit school in D1.

    It's a branding hit in the city and state they play in, but sure.

    CFS is great. Ordered from them a few times; it’s my favorite store on the internet.

    Classic Football Shirts ends up with player issue, sponsorless RoI shirts from time to time, and they have some now, most recently from the Euro 2012 set.

    I think there's a decent chance a 12-1 Georgia makes the playoff if Notre Dame runs the table to finish 11-1, but less so if ND ends up 10-2 or worse. You could be left with a situation where you're choosing between ND, TCU and Georgia (for example) for two spots, and ND's resume would be better than TCU's, which is better than Georgia's, but UGA beat ND. I would be very intrigued to see how the committee would handle that. UGA's existence as a potential 12-1, non-SEC champion is the only thing that keeps me from feeling supremely confident about an 11-1 Notre Dame being a playoff lock. Also, if Alabama loses the SEC title game, they will not have a particularly strong resume -- their best possible win would be a 10-2 Texas A&M, but it seems more realistic their best wins will turn out to be 9-3 and 8-4 fellow SEC West teams that aren't going to be ranked in the top 15. It would be very neat to see Alabama's scheduling habits come back to hurt them.
