    Would just like to point out here that, despite whatever lies Jed York has told to the contrary, Jim Harbaugh most certainly did not bolt from the 49ers. He was fired by the silver spoon twerp Jed York and his yes man general manager Trent Baalke.

    Unfortunately for my schadenfreude purposes, until about a month ago it looked like this idiotic move (which, in turn, was followed by the even-more-idiotic move of hiring Jim Tomsula as his replacement) might end up setting the 49ers franchise back a decade — they went 8-35 in the next 43 games following his ouster —, but they struck gold (heh) with the Garoppolo deal and the team is undoubtedly going to be everyone’s chic Super Bowl pick next year. Darn.

    Oh well. We’ll always have this

    ^ bad memories.

    I wanted Clemson to beat Bama last week because Bama is the Patriots of college football. So, I'll be rooting for the Bulldogs to washout the Crimson Tide on Monday.

    45 will be there tonight. I'd give anything for players to kneel, but it's college so they won't...

    Given that it's Georgia and Alabama would be ten times more incredible, still. But, a hundred times more certain they won't.

    Did Georgia even throw the bloody ball during the 4th Quarter? Just run the ball over and over again. Did they even try with this game?

    Is there a better in-game / second-half adjustment coach than Saban in college football at this point?

    I can't think of anyone else who'd say "screw it, you know what? Let's put in the freshman and see if he can't get this going for us" in NCAAF?

    That the same Nick Saban who blew a 21-6 lead in the playoff semifinal Sugar Bowl against Ohio State? And the same Nick Saban who blew a 24-14 lead in the fourth quarter of the title game a year ago?

    Recency bias is real, my friend.

    Not to mention a 24-0 lead to Auburn one year.

    Okay, in texting with my brother this morning, I came up with an 8-team playoff system I don't hate. You use the Rose, Sugar, Orange, and Cotton Bowls with traditional tie-ins, and then seed the winners afterwards. It keeps a little tradition, rewards winning a Power-five championship, and gives the little guy an actual shot, though not guaranteeing them one.

    So, you'd slot it

    Rose - Big Ten Champ vs. Pac 12 Champ
    Sugar - SEC Champ vs. Big XII Champ
    Orange - ACC Champ vs. AT LARGE
    Cotton - AT LARGE* vs. AT LARGE

    With the first Cotton Bowl AT LARGE reserved for a qualifying Group of Five Team. Undefeated and ranked in the top fifteen should suffice.

    So, this year.

    Ohio State vs USC in the Rose (where it should have been)
    Georgia vs. Oklahoma in the Sugar (where it should have been)
    Clemson vs. Wisconsin in the Orange
    UCF vs. Alabama in the Cotton

    After the games are played, the committee ranks the four winners, and 1-4 and 2-3 happen in neutral site games that were bid upon, and then those winners play in the NCG, again in a neutral site that was bid on. We add one more week to the seasons, sure, but since the NCAA doesn't actually care about academics or student safety, and certainly not more than they care about cash, it comes to fruition.

    Yeah this has been my ideal mental final 8 since the beginning. It's perfect.

    Missed the stupid game, was in the hospital being checked for concussion (long story). Great win for Alabama, it looks like.

    Kudos to the four members of the AP who cast their 1st place votes for UCF. Wish we had transparency in the poll to know who those brave, honorable four voters are.

    You guessed it, PG. Ice, head, pavement.

    Just saw this on the CFB subreddit - since taking over at LSU in 99, every one of Nick Saban's recruiting classes has a national title ring:

    2000 LSU class won national title in 2003
    2001 LSU class won national title in 2003
    2002 LSU class won national title in 2003
    2003 LSU class won national title in 2003
    2004 LSU class won national title in 2007 (Miles HC)
    2007 Alabama class won national title in 2009
    2008 Alabama class won national title in 2009 and 2011
    2009 Alabama class won national title in 2009, 2011, and 2012
    2010 Alabama class won national title in 2011 and 2012
    2011 Alabama class won national title in 2011 and 2012
    2012 Alabama class won national title in 2012 and 2015
    2013 Alabama class won national title in 2015
    2014 Alabama class won national title in 2015 and 2017
    2015 Alabama class won national title in 2015 and 2017
    2016 Alabama class won national title in 2017
    2017 Alabama class won national title in 2017

    That's something.
