    They're not moving on from Eli so they won't.

    LSU’s third string players OTOH would probably be first team All Americans in other conferences

    When the wastes of oxygen on ESPN were talking about how UCF are frauds who didn't deserve to be in the playoff I was praying to God that some alert producer had put the Notre Dame logo on the screen.

    Literally nobody wanted Orgeron near their program after USC. Les throws him a bone and Ed snakes him. LSU could have had Tom Herman or Jimbo Fisher and went with Ed O. The day Dave Aranda leaves, it's going to implode.

    What was the original reason for the bowl games? I mean now it's sponsorship-based, but the Rose Bowl used to be considered a New Years' Day tradition, and this goes back decades. With all the talk about meaningless bowl games and the like, why is the Rose Bowl meaningless? I look at the Rose Bowl on New Years Day like I look at the NFL on Thanksgiving. It's an American Institution. Now I'm all in favor of making the Rose Bowl always a playoff game, but I would say increase the number of teams you can have in the playoffs and make sure that there is a playoff game always on New Years Day.

    Heck, I would plan it so the Rose Bowl is always the championship game, played on New Years Day at the same time as always.

    I’m not trying to be bias but I really don’t think Herman was ever gonna go to LSU.

    The Texas hype train will be starting early; Collin Johnson will be returning to school.

    Hate that he had to watch his team get destroyed in his last ever game.

    I was obviously out of the country for two weeks but I was checking apps to keep abreast of collegiate football scores and I was shocked to see at the time that MSU put up 6 points. Georgia also somehow lost to Texas. Not sure how this could possibly happen. MSU is elite...

    @Halladay

    imagine putting up 6 points in a bowl game :laugh:

    That was the same VT team that beat the eventual national champion Buckeyes in Columbus too. Such a weird team that Hokie squad was. That WF game was legendary though :laugh:
