Thank-you Dadoffourgirls! Watched Oklahoma State vs Baylor and now watching Alabama vs Georgia. Believe it or NOT, I will be rooting for Michigan tonight over Iowa as I have lived in Michigan since Jan 1973.


I am certainly glad that you were able to watch these games. And I am aware that you reside in Michigan, with an Ohio football heart. I think it has been 15 years or more on this site. I believe that you were one of the individuals who took a GM employee certificate from me.

Wishing you a speedy recovery, and remember that there are individuals that trust your football insight and knowledge.

Gotta remember we’re talking about 18-21 year old young men, a bunch known for being inconsistent. They can be brilliant one day and buffoons the next. So Michigan sent their buffoons to East Lansing and saved their brilliance for the Buckeyes, good moves except for the East Lansing part. Buckeyes unloaded brilliance on Sparty, and sent their buffoons to Ann Arbor. So, Michiganders, send your brilliance to the playoffs.

I don't disagree. I was concerned that the buffoons would not show up in Indy. Hopefully Indy was an indication that the brilliance has been raised to a new level and provided maturity to these young men.

So I have spent some time watching some of these bowl games. I hope bagman is getting a chance to watch as well. There have been some interesting results.

You sold my alma mater short. This was a rebuilding year and we didn't expect much but Georgia has always fallen short. I doubt if we can beat them twice, being so short-handed. We have pretty much run out of receivers but got lucky enough to face an easy opponent in the semi-final game and won without a passing game. Win or lose, our record against Georgia is pretty impressive.

I graduated in '65 and have been to a lot of games. I haven't seen Bama an underdog many times in the Sabin era but he always seems to win those games. Being an underdog is what Nick calls "yummy rat poison."

Watched several games, including the Rose Bowl, where the Buckeyes sent their buffoons out for the first half, then the Brilliants in the second half. My hat’s off to the Utes on a great game. It turned into the shootout I expected and it’s a shame someone had to lose. Both teams did well, IMHO. Given the talent gap, it’s amazing the game was so close but Utah over achieved, which should make the sting of loss a little less.

Also gotta give a lot of credit to Jaxon Smith-Njigba. 15 catches for 347 yards, a 23 yard average is awesome, and bodes well for the future.

I apologize for not contributing on this sports forum as when I get home from work, I am totally exhausted and bed is my best friend. I did watch many good college football games and I get much enjoyment doing that, but these games that start at 8:00 PM are just to hard to stay awake till the end. And sometime past midnight. However, I DVR the games and catch up with them when I have time! BTW, I think Mel Tucker at MSU did a great job turning Mich. State around! I knew his dad Mel Tucker Sr. when I was at the U. of Toledo. Bags.

I try not to rub it in and if Georgia was not my school, in my state and my home town I likely would not say anything. But despite some really bad officiating we still managed to whip 'bama like a borrowed mule. Bama today is likely the biggest dynasty in college football I have ever seen, including the Bear Bryant era.
Papa said a 'blind hog finds an acorn every once in awhile'. Been 40 years but the dogs did it again. Walk-on quarterback had a dream watching 'bama spank some poor team 20 years ago and that dream of his came to fruition. Best Georgia team I have ever seen.

I only watched the three final FBS games. Was hoping for Cinci but knew what would happen. Thought Utes might come out on top. Heck of a game.Have a good friend that went to Georgia. Great game there.

My BOBCATS played NDSU for the FCS title. NDSU is a dynasty and a literal machine. My CATS got taken to the woodshed. Really did not play up to their capabilities. They needed to play their best game of the season but did not. NDSU would have won the majority of the FBS bowl game.

GOOOOOO BOBCATS
