It would be very fitting if it were Michigan this year. The season where everyone thinks osu is #1 and Michigan sucks the most.

I'm not sure about Ohio State. The two most popular opinions are that they're #1, and they're terribly overrated. I think neither, and I'll probably still be uncertain even if they beat Wisconsin because I'm unsure about them too. Everyone thinks them beating Wisconsin will affirm that they're number 1, I think they should be ranked less and a good win over wisco should earn them their CURRENT ranking.

I can see where you're coming from though. Probably because Georgia hasn't been able to play well all 4 quarters yet among other things. Idk though, sill may be enough to take blowhio state.

Ohio State bailed out of their 2021-22 home home games with Georgia. Just like they bailed on UNC in 15-16.

Yeah Army v. Navy has always been a huge one and a classic one. If you were to google it, I'm pretty sure it would say OSU Michigan then Army Navy for college football if I were to guess. Other than the olympics, in soccer there is some mixture of spain, barcelona, and brazil. I think two of those have a big rivalry. And there's Canada and Russia in hockey. Celtics v. Lakers when Larry Bird v. Magic Johnson was a thing. Chicago bears vs... I forget.

Alabama v. Clemson has been slowly turning into a thing, we'll see if that continues. I hope not :mrdead:

Holy shit. Bammers think thems er dern fightin' words if you say anything about their Alabama Auburn rivalry. This grizzly dippin nutria smoking bammer was telling me that bama Auburn is the greatest sports rivalry in the world. I'm like dude the world? Don't you mean college football? He says no in the entire world in sports HBO did a special on it. I say I certainly respect it more than ohio state Michigan, texas oklahoma, etc but the world?? HELL NO. He got pissed!! I mentioned yankees vs red Sox, ali vs frasier, and then UNC Duke in basketball and I think I may have caused him to have a stroke. Thank GOD I didn't bring up soccer, I think he would've tried to strangle me.

And yes I know it's a huge game. I told him I recalled a special saying that ohio state Michigan was overrated, they had auburn Alabama Auburn as #1 and Carolina duke #2 for ALL college sports but NOPE, shouldn't have even suggested it could be #2, when he heard basketball I may as well said badminton.  Actually, worse than that.
I think it would've been better had I mentioned competitive pokemon :lolsign:

Of course, college football has WAYYY bigger ratings than basketball. Nc duke is just an exception having not only more views than the ncaa championship game, but double.

How about what Carolina has done after Newton has been sidelined?

I do feel for cam, a little, I think that franchise has run him into the ground a bit. He played through a lot of injuries. But, he's also a fruit cake with a weird ego. So I can't help but laugh when a back up that nobody knows is the first backup QB since the 90s to go 4-0 in his first career starts. And how about Christian McCaffrey?! Holy shit, that kid is really putting up some numbers. Then Luke Kuechly, a top 3 linebacker every year and arguably the best, is putting up even more exceptional numbers than usual. So long Cam and thanks for 2016! :lolsign:

We all know his potential though. Hopefully the franchise doesn't run CMC into the ground in the next few years. He's playing like someone that's gonna tear their ACL one of these days...

I didn't catch Tennessee Georgia but I did watch almost all of unc vs g tech. Georgia tech didn't play well at all and got lucky several times. Sam Howell nailed wide open receivers twice in the end zone on 3rd down,  on 2 separate drives,  with one resulting in a missed FG. Halftime should've easily been 30-0 instead of 17-0. Bad coverage by g tech and the same happened in the 3rd quarter on nc's receiving end. I saw tweets in articles after to strip the receivers scholarships from lack of effort, lmao. Two huge turnovers by nc with one directly putting g tech in position to immediately score after. So NC got very lucky as well that ga tech couldn't capitalize unless it was served on a platter. The announcers said they had improved a lot especially since the citadel loss but I only watched the end of that game. Ga tech let nc coast for a win for more than 3/4 of a game despite dropped passes for basically free TD's and big turnovers. Bad coaching calls for g tech too. On UNC's end there hasn't been big coaching blunders for the past two games at least. Clemson especially. Although I think they should've done what they were doing the whole game for that failed 2pt conversion against Clemson because it was WORKING Haha. The OC 'tried' to catch them off with an option play to the right and dabo said his DC went up to him and predicted the exact play call.

I mean... I think AOC's answer was appropriate for the most part. Vague, deflective, typical politician baloney might've been the best thing for someone that bat shit crazy. I doubt coherently explaining why we shouldn't consume babies to her would've went well.

Speaking of which, the lefty mainstream media outlets are all saying she was a trump supporter. But it could be a group of radical leftists posing as trump supporters that pose as AOC supporters. It's up in the air whether or not George Soros funneled some money into a citizen support group that is affiliated with brettbart, and by the request of brettbart Donald Jr. has talked at several of their fundraising events. Sarah Huckabee Sanders' cousin is the recording corresponding secretary for the organization as well, so it REALLY, REALLY doesn't look good for the republicans. Baby-cannibalism-gate will be the undoing of Trump 2020.

UNC started out ranked 58th in strength of schedule. They are now 5th. Notre Dame is still #1, because they overrate their opponents so the wins mean a lot and the losses mean little(same with ohio state). Sucks the preseason SoS was so off in the FPI though. They set the narrative for the ACC coastal to be trash, and now they have duke 4-1(1 loss to alabama), UVA 4-1(1 loss to Notre dame), and wake forest 5-0 all on NC's schedule. NC is probably the best 2-3 team right now. I'd say SC normally had they not played each other in their opener.

Media on big 10: "Remember when Indiana gave ohio state a hard time? Northwestern beat Indiana!!! Man, the big 10 is just so good and so competitive!!!!"

Media on ACC coastal: "Well the acc coastal started out with unc, va tech, and miami all 5-0 but now they've all dropped a game to each other. The coastal is just so inconsistent no team stands out"

^That was 4-5 years ago haha, and if anything the big 10 was marginally worse than normal. The coastal is hit or miss but writing them off from the start sucks. Uphill battle to get a good bowl game from there.

I liked it too. The play selection on the other hand... But, that was the best game I've seen all season so far maybe. The ACC haters are already saying Clemson is trash and shouldn't be ranked, but whatever.

I can resonate with what everyone said. Still trying to figure out why the democrats are becoming so out of touch with their more informed constituency. I keep saying 'classic liberal'. I'm not sure if that's correct or not, but I mean respectable liberal prioritizing the issues I listed over a 3 year old's right to choose their gender. Relying on the youth and the dumb to show up to the polls seems like a long shot.

I'm not sure yet either, but the democratic ticket is currently my least appealing option.

NC's Sam Howell is 80th in total QBR, but closer to 8th if you only count his 4th quarter stats. He's 7 for 8 on 4th downs. 4 games and even in defeat he has a knack for winning the 4th quarter and having all the momentum. When the pressure on, somehow with some luck, the kid does absurdly better. The pressure will be on the whole game against clemson and the spread is 28.5 pts. Despite NC having little to no chance of actually winning, I think I'll place a wager on +28.5.

Man, this exceeded my own expectations. That was actually one of the best games I've seen so far this season! I hope y'all caught it, that 2pt conversion call at the end........yeah............. but a really good game nonetheless. What a weird consistency NC has. The best at thriving in the moment and under pressure. The announcer said before the game he IS actually the #1 QB in the nation in 4th quarter, I was just guessing he was up there previously. And to think the great 4th quarter stats carried him to get a whopping 80th total QBR, hahaha. This was freshman Sam Howell's best game yet by far and very fitting against Clemson.

Any time clemson seemed off it was largely due to NC playing well. Although I admit when watching UNC's defense shred clemson's OL and sack Trevor Lawrence a few times I was waiting for Ashton Kutcher to pop out saying I've been punk'd.

Did duke just become our best hope to beat notre dame? :WTF:

Most of that video was new to me. Never heard of the movie, but it was a good watch.

If voting day was tomorrow how would y'all vote? Or would you not vote? I'm not asking for A or B. Would leaning towards classic liberal views or moderate conservative views force you to vote for a candidate you don't like? And, how would the democratic candidate contrast to trump with the liberal foundation of free speech, power to the people, private property rights, peace, etc? That's probably a tougher dilemma than if it were flipped. I assume most conservative leaning moderates that aren't fans of trump are probably more disgusted with the current left, but that's not saying they'd go for trump. Plenty of no-votes in there.
