How long do these things usually run?  It's been a long time since I've played but I'm tempted. I won't be free right at 7pm...

I'll be on the bleachers watching, that should add a good 30 minutes until the frag limit is reached.  :badgrin:

Very cool the event's still happening.  I'll try to tune in.

I'm down that'll be fun. Here's what I thought when I saw the ACC's bowls.

The ACC is really close in talent. The teams 8-4 to 6-6 are essentially the same tier. As someone who follows the acc closer than most, Virginia, north Carolina, Virginia tech, and pitt are the 4 best teams. Then comes Louisville/wake, then fsu/boston college. I think that's very accurate in that order. And here are the matchups they made:

Virginia vs Florida is a semi decent game that Florida will win. There's nothing odd about this game. Virginia is better than people think, although I'd be disappointed a tad as a gator fan that they don't get to play someone on the uhh...  penn state level.

UNC v. Temple. No comment other than UNC is currently a 83% favorite.

Boston college v. Cincinnati. They gave the over-ranked 2nd best group of 5 team a closer but very winnable game.

Wake forest v. Michigan state. They gave possibly the only underrated big 10 team a shot at a slightly overrated wake forest team that is plagued with injuries.

Pittsburgh v. Eastern Michigan. Same situation as NC.

Virginia tech v. Kentucky. Partially similar situation to Virginia Florida. Decent matchup Kentucky favored.

FSU v. Arizona State. It's an alright matchup probably,  but I bet FSU will lose.

Louisville Tennessee. Tennessee slightly favored but this one looks very reasonable.

Miami Louisiana. Miami favored.

It would be perfect if they swapped bc/wake with unc/pitt, but nope, lets do our literal best to make the acc look bad and the big 10 and group of 5 look good.  :lolsign:

Carolina panthers fire Ron Rivera. There's a lot of mixed views on this. Off the top of my head, Rivera has won his south division 3x, nfc championship once along with a super bowl appearance, and has won coach of three year twice within 8 years. That is probably... 5 playoff appearances probably, as many as 6 and a minimum of 4. That's not bad, but it's not great either. I think most would say that's above average. The panthers trend wasn't looking so hot and it may have been a good call. What's surprising is that I didn't know the Panthers had such a high standard of greatness lol. Definitely has me scratching my head. If they find someone good it'll be a good call.

Oh baby. The thoughts of Georgia getting a crack at Ohio State makes my he-pussy all kindsa wet. :D

Yup. The playoffs seem very matchup dependent this year than normal. I seriously think that Georgia might be OSU's toughest opponent(I said "map", I meant matchup). After that, Clemson. Despite how good LSU is, OSU has a chance to score more on them than the other teams. I've always been critical of the people that say "defense wins championships", because ya gotta put points on the board haha. But, ONLY offense leaves no room for error. Of course, the beating LSU put on a&m was pretty nice. I'd just be bummed if OSU beats Baylor to get to the national championship then barely edges LSU in a high scoring "shootout".  :raincloud:

It's smart of the committee to seed LSU and Clemson at 2 and 3 if they're trying to help OSU. LSU just has to beat Georgia, then the 2 best teams in the nation duke it out while OSU plays Utah, Oklahoma, or Baylor. Georgia is a tough game for any team in the playoffs, but if their offense can't click, but their defense plays GREAT, they still likely lose a close-ish one to LSU and Clemson. Assuming Georgia is playing at a realistic level of their potential, I see it as a 1/3 chance to win 28-24, and a 2/3 chance of losing 28-24.... if not I guess they'll lose by a bit more.

But, it's possible that Georgia is the worst map for OSU. OSU's offense gets slowed down for the first time, and Georgia's offense gets comfortable playing against the #1 defense in the country since their stats are padded with overrated teams. A lot of gray area and presumption there but I'd certainly enjoy it being that way at least  :lolsign:

Michigan was outplayed but the game could've easily been within 1-2 TD's opposed to what the score actually was.

Just a reminder: if I sound a little dumber than normal it's probably due to me posting on my phone. I use Swype text plus put forth less effort because it's annoying compared to a keyboard, then autocorrect butchers it after. I reread my posts and say  :WTF: sometimes

Tough to say who will win the natty this year. Everyone can beat each other, but I think clemson is the best team in the nation. Even though the rankings won't show it, I bet Clemson will be favored slightly in all playoff matchups assuming they beat Virginia.

UNC NC state started out rainy. State led 10-6 at halftime with 7 of those points coming from the play after an interception.  Then NC scored 28 unanswered points in the 3rd quarter. Sam Howell ended his first season as 4th acc all-time passing TD leader, and as a true freshman. Halfway through the 4th quarter mack was able to put in 2nd and 3rd string including the 3rd string qb. Was a way better ending than last year (after 2 terrible seasons the fedora era ended with a brawl between nc and NC state resulting in 7 ejections)  :lolsign:

ESPN has NC playing LA Tech or FIU, but hopefully this happens instead:

I still want to see NC against a big 10 team but texas would be a good game.

Flawda and Gawja seemed to handle their rival games. Clemson too. Auburn was everyone's hero, michigan was not. Between the shoe crap, the opportunities missed, and the opportunities given to OSU it was all pretty typical. I was able to watch that game while supervising my son's 4th birthday.

Thank you Ole Miss for starting out rivalry week with something special, lol. Some of these celebrating in the end zone calls I'm not a fan with. Not like I'm passionately against them, but when that LSU punter faked then scored 6 points that the first season the rule was implemented I felt for the kid. A punter taking it for 6 when it wasn't the coaches call is badass(and equally stupid if it doesn't get a 1st down). I think all he did was extend the ball out to the side of him. But there rule has been out for awhile now and this fucker crawls on all fours and takes a leak like a dog. Lmao. I sort of halfway approve since it was the most eventful thing that happened in the game but damn what an idiot.

Some love for the big 10 tonight. OSU over LSU and penn state over Florida. Well now we know. If alabama beats auburn, and lsu beats georgia, then alabama gets the #4 spot. They made it so bama and lsu don't have to play in the semis.

Michigan upsetting OSU would spoil that as well. Man, threat upset would be nice...

Yeah that would be nice. UNC plays duke and NC State every year. Unfortunately duke is having a subpar year and NC State an even worse year (for them). They played app state and wake too though this season who are both having their best seasons they've had in awhile. UNC has to beat NC State to become bowl eligible although they're probably in anyway assuming there's extra spots to be awarded to 5 loss teams. Projections have NC playing Michigan State or Illinois I've seen.

On a random note I saw that UNC's opener is Auburn next year

I have a better scenario, however it's more so for the entire state of Florida and not the gators.

This is what has transpired in Florida this far: Miami > FSU, Florida > Miami, FIU > Miami, FAU > FIU, UCF > FAU

To ice the cake we need FSU to beat Florida and USF to beat UCF in rivalry week.  :lolsign:

I think we'd still call the gators the best team in Florida even if that happened,  but who would be 2nd?  :huh:

Sam Howell breaks Mitch Trubisky's school record for most TD's in a single season, and Trevor Lawrence's record of most td's by a true freshman in FBS. I did a google search and only campus media reported on it :lolsign:

I really think in a year or 2 NC is going to be the team to challenge clemson in the ACC, perhaps more.

I missed the texas a&m Georgia game, but I did see loads of rants claiming the refs made the win happen lol. Oh and Oregon's out. Utah's gotta blow everyone's doors off, because if not and somehow alabama runs the score up on auburn bad. . .  :mrdead:

Still think the alabama oklahoma matchup will be very enticing to the committee though, plus no lsu bama rematch without tua. Two huge fanbases.

Probably farm-raised or someone's pet by the size. I've seen some kooky turkeys in cape May, NJ(I've worked there twice). Someone owns a whole pack of them and they like to strut around everywhere. In town, on the beach, rain, snow, wherever. Otherwise I'm just used to the wild ones I gotta slam on the brakes for dating across the road or in groups in fields and hills. Well they like the woods too so I guess they're everywhere. Either way those are some silly birds that gobble their ass off. Speaking of silly birds...... 3 days ago my wife yelled for me and is like "there's an animal in the yard". I look out the window and I watch this thing for 10 minutes. All I see is a stationary plump body bigger than a softball doing a humping motion. It was very seductive and freaky,  although I was more so thinking about the eagles that live next to me and that motion was basically like dangling a worm in front of a fish. I go out and realize it's a bird and it's plump like a pheasant but I caught a glimpse of a long narrow beak/bill(like a Piper/shorebird). I became 100% sure it was a woodcock once I saw one of these many videos of this bird "dancing" haha. Never heard of one until then. I guess I should've recorded a video.

Apparently you can eat them.
