College Football 2018-19: Santa Clara is that a way.

Recommended Posts

We're about to make it 10 quarters in which a playoff team from Michigan, Ohio and now Indiana hasn't scored a TD.

 

Even though the semifinals are actually on a Saturday, today seems "flat" compared to New Year's Eve or New Year's Day.

Yeah I get why they’re having the games today, but it’s just not really working IMO. It feels too weird that the big playoff games are before so many other lesser bowl games.

Also,

 

Notre Dame is about as competitive as I expected them to be.

 

They need to completely ban them from bowl games until they get themselves into a conference.

It's also a weird start time for such a big game.  And yeah, Notre Dame earned their way in but it doesn't really feel like they belong.

Ugh. This Notre Dame team is better than this. But of course injuries and terrible playcalling strike again. Not saying they'd be winning, but it should be much closer.

The reversal of the kickoff fumble changed the game.

 

4pm vs. 3:30pm isn't really a big deal to me, however, today's game has longer commercial breaks than the SEC on CBS. The Orange Bowl may start closer to 9.

The theme music for the CFB Playoffs just sounds like they took B role of Tracy Morgan saying “win”. Has to be the most annoying thing of watching this game.

Yeah, they should have let that stood.

It'd just be 23-6 if they let it stand.  Notre Dame can't get open downfield or protect Book. 

 

Notre Dame needs to join a conference. This mismatch could've happened in the ACC championship game.

I can't believe Notre Dame is totally outmatched. This never happens to them.

We've had nine CFP semifinal games played so far and five of them have been decided by 20 points or more... and we need 8 teams?

 

Reading Georgia and Ohio State* Twitter tonight is much more fun.

 

*-You still don't count UCF.

I'm ticked off that I lost $100 betting on Clemson. (I had bet $100 to win $50 had they won by 40.)

Maybe it's not legitimate, but I feel like iffy calls in these college football games should go in favor of the underdog.

Alabama vs. Clemson is the John Cena vs. Randy Orton of college football.

At least those guys are visually distinct from one another. Games that look like scrimmages are boring.

 

I watch like 3 NCAA football games per year. I recognize the sport might not be for me.

Well, we have Georgia fan (and players) trying to invoke the "rematch clause" on Twitter tonight.

 

I may have to bet on Texas in the Sugar Bowl.

You have to win sometime to invoke a rematch clause.

It's a lot more fun in the regular season. It's kind of like how the NBA is super fun until the Finals the last couple years.

Sorry for the double post, but honestly, just put UCF in the playoff. They get blown out, so what? So does everybody else that has to face Bama and Clemson.

Good luck finding a replacement if 8 wins isn't a good year. Kendall Briles is apparently taking another job already. That offense looked . . . well it looked like something. 

They're going after Holgerson on January 1 as his buyout drops to just $1 million.
