  1. The crux of the comparison was because you're discounting Colorado's resume', in part, because they've been bad the last several years. Well, whether they're a generally bad team having an exceptional season or if they're a bad team transforming into a good team is, frankly, irrelevant in the scope of their 2016 playoff merits. The only thing that matters for their 2016 playoff status is what they've accomplished this season. And, FTR, I'm entirely objectively fine with Ohio State as a playoff team (I rate them #2 personally), but that there's a huge difference between "best four teams" and "correct four teams" based on committee precedence. For my part, I really would hate the idea that there was a premium placed in the initial CFP field of Ohio State getting in over Baylor/TCU because they were an outright conference champion, and then two years later they would get the nod over another outright conference champion despite not qualifying for theirs, whatever the reason may be. After all, the whole point of mothballing the BCS was to streamline the process with rational human mind and not have computers spitting context-free numbers at us. The committee is going to have to decide if they want to re-establish a precedence, or if they're going to just fly by the seat of their pants. I mean, the choice is their's, and we can't do anything about it, but if they do the latter this year and moving forward, well, they're no better than what the BCS was in the first place; the only difference would be that the BCS never was accompanied by a playoff system, something that I, personally, believe (especially in retrospect) would've made the BCS system significantly more bearable.
  2. Cross-sport comparison but same basic idea. In 2012, the Red Sox won 69 games. In 2014, they won 71. In 2015, they won 78. In 2013, they won 97 and the World Series. They were terrible for three years in four. 2013 certainly stands out as a fluke. Should they have to give back their World Series trophy because of that? I'm not even here to argue the merits of Colorado in the CFP if they win tonight, but I can't possibly agree with this argument. Furthermore, sometimes you can spot a fluke in real-time, but more often than not, a fluke isn't discovered until after the fact. If Colorado had the credentials to be in the playoff, then their struggles in previous seasons hold no water because, well, it's not any of those previous seasons anymore. That would be terribly unfair to them.
  3. Cowboys
  4. Thanksgiving was this past week, and most of us feasted on the picks. Week 12 results: Week 12 winner(s): McCarthy, ninersdd, Heitert, and jmac all with 14-2 records, the last one resulting in... LEADER CHANGE: ...jmac retuning to the post he held for the first nine weeks of the season. Week 12 loser: Alex Houston at 8-6, in part from not getting all the picks in, but, still, pretty good weeks all around Week 13 schedule: Dallas vs. Minnesota Kansas City vs. Atlanta Detroit vs. New Orleans Los Angeles vs. New England Denver vs. Jacksonville Houston vs. Green Bay Philadelphia vs. Cincinnati Miami vs. Baltimore San Francisco vs. Chicago Buffalo vs. Oakland Tampa Bay vs. San Diego NY Giants vs. Pittsburgh Washington vs. Arizona Carolina vs. Seattle Indianapolis vs. NY Jets byes: Cleveland, Tennessee (I was wrong last week; these are the final byes of 2016)
  5. For those who don't know - Bobby calling people "assclowns" on HF is something of a recurring theme with him.
  6. I don't watch much college basketball, but the uniform template Syracuse wore last year in the Tourney is awful and I hate seeing that Florida is wearing that same template now as well.
  7. Minnesota vs. Detroit Washington vs. Dallas Pittsburgh vs. Indianapolis Tennessee vs. Chicago Jacksonville vs. Buffalo Cincinnati vs. Baltimore Arizona vs. Atlanta NY Giants vs. Cleveland Los Angeles vs. New Orleans San Francisco vs. Miami San Diego vs. Houston Seattle vs. Tampa Bay Carolina vs. Oakland New England vs. NY Jets Kansas City vs. Denver Green Bay vs. Philadelphia
  8. Spoiler alert: @winters in buffalo wins again. Week 11 results: Week 11 winner(s): WiB for the 5th time this season, along with rams80, who is now 60-22 since Week 6 with his picks. Week 11 loser(s): RyanMcD and ninersdd at 8-6, which could pass as a tolerable week almost any other week of the year. This was just a strong week all around. Week 12 schedule: Minnesota vs. Detroit Washington vs. Dallas Pittsburgh vs. Indianapolis Tennessee vs. Chicago Jacksonville vs. Buffalo Cincinnati vs. Baltimore Arizona vs. Atlanta NY Giants vs. Cleveland Los Angeles vs. New Orleans San Francisco vs. Miami San Diego vs. Houston Seattle vs. Tampa Bay Carolina vs. Oakland New England vs. NY Jets Kansas City vs. Denver Green Bay vs. Philadelphia all bye weeks are complete
  9. New Orleans vs. Carolina Tampa Bay vs. Kansas City Pittsburgh vs. Cleveland Baltimore vs. Dallas Jacksonville vs. Detroit Tennessee vs. Indianapolis Buffalo vs. Cincinnati Chicago vs. NY Giants Arizona vs. Minnesota Miami vs. Los Angeles New England vs. San Francisco Philadelphia vs. Seattle Green Bay vs. Washington Houston vs. Oakland
  10. When Stamkos starts the season looking like a superstar, he has to suffer a serious right leg injury in the middle of November. It's become a routine.
  11. Not even the 'Canes, really?
  12. This is not my favorite week to have ever updated... Week 10 results: Week 10 winner(s): Winters in Buffalo, Bear, RyanMcD, and Magic Dynasty, all 11-3. 4th weekly win for WiB, no wonder... LEADER CHANGE: ...he's now atop the overall standings. First week all season with a new leader. Buffalo! Say, a Buffalo fan won this competition last year, too. Go figure. Week 10 loser(s): ninersdd, 4-10. Lowest I've been in the standings at any point in the last two seasons. Not fun to see that kind of tumble. Week 11 schedule: New Orleans vs. Carolina Tampa Bay vs. Kansas City Pittsburgh vs. Cleveland Baltimore vs. Dallas Jacksonville vs. Detroit Tennessee vs. Indianapolis Buffalo vs. Cincinnati Chicago vs. NY Giants Arizona vs. Minnesota Miami vs. Los Angeles New England vs. San Francisco Philadelphia vs. Seattle Green Bay vs. Washington Houston vs. Oakland (Mexico City) byes: Atlanta, Denver, NY Jets, San Diego
  13. Michigan losing is terrible news for Ohio State as well. (Wow, what a sentence.) Ohio State can finish with 1-loss and miss out on the B1G Championship Game thanks to Penn State also likely being a 1-loss conference team with the tiebreaker. And the protocol kinda has been established that playoff teams come from winning their conference's championship game...we're not about to see this Penn State team as a possible playoff team, are we? Ohio State, and Louisville for that matter, are quite likely two of the top-four teams, but there's no road for them to the playoff for either as things currently stand. Then again...days like today do show, again, that anything can happen still.
  14. I do feel it's only fair to point out that YES was not carried to Comcast subscribers last season, which I'm sure didn't help matters. (...I wonder if you had an over/under as to when someone was gonna point this out, haha.)
