Had my numbers wrong … Michigan’s 1. I could see them jumping Alabama to 1 but I think this loss drops Georgia to 4th and I can’t fathom they do a rematch for a semifinal.
I agree they drop to 4th. Georgia stinks and they were dominated today.

Is there any chance Georgia drops out? Maybe if OKST showed up today. Georgia was kinda blown out tonight is the only thing.

Very clarifying day.

Bama and Cincy are in. So is Georgia. 4th spot will go to Michigan or Notre Dame. No controversy. Heisman Trophy likely settled too with Bryce Young’s performance.

I think Bama is #1, UGA #3 if Michigan wins and #2 if UM loses.

If Michigan blows out Iowa, I could see them moving to #1 and them dropping Georgia to #4. If the Michigan game is close, Alabama will be #1 and Georgia will drop to #3. There is no way they have Alabama play Georgia again in the semifinal.

Alabama looked awful last week, Georgia looked awful this week.

ED: I think Georgia is (at best) 4 if Michigan wins because in that scenario the only conversation for the Committee is Georgia vs Notre Dame. Y'all might think it is a foregone conclusion that it is the Bulldogs but they will have that conversation.

It's annoying because Alabama was this close to being out last week. But honestly they probably would have deserved to be the 4 seed even at 2 losses. Dynasty isn't over.

Barely managed a moment of silence at the B1G championship. Lots of people have been drinking all day.

I appreciate the sentiment by Michigan, but if my son was murdered in a school shooting, I think I’d turn down the offer to attend the coin flip at that weekend’s big game.

They are most likely sedated.

Man, we have people judging the Dr. Pepper toss participants for their throwing motion and the parents of murdered children for not watching the big game on their couch. Tough crowd.

My only gripe against the DP challenge is that they were man vs woman, which seems crazy unfair. Not that women aren't capable it just seems the men have the advantage. Which was the case since both men won.

That Iowa fan they showed should become a Jets fan. He already has the Jets fan face down.

Thanks for the clarity on the slide rule.

I guess I’m no fun, because when I saw that it enraged me and made me hope they blow up Pickett next chance they get.

Makes more sense at least if it’s just something the officials F’d up on.

I was kind of hoping Notre Dame would be embarrassed once again
Lose their conference championship game?

ED- They presumably cost themselves by playing an awful schedule. Not fully their fault because USC sucks and it's hard to predict that fifty years in advance, but still.

The throw needed to be behind the receiver -- that was the only lane available. Sort of need to trust your receiver not to shovel the pass to the defender.

I only want to hear Pearl Jam on Simmons’ pod and certainly not during the Big 10 championship game

I don't care for Panthers. If I'm rating big cats, I think it's gotta go:

1. Lions
2. Tigers
3. Cougars
4. Cheetahs
5. Leopards
6. Jaguars
7. Panthers
