    Interesting to see a "second rate" Big 12 Texas team really take it to the Pac12 runner up.

    Very much questioning my thoughts to replace OU with someone who would play a better game.... Geez

    SEC hosts the Sugar

    If it were up to me I'd rewind everything to 1970. Going from the Pac-8 to the Pac-10 was a mistake. Multiple national champions? Who cares? It's mythical anyway.

    The whole idea of a national title in football is reification gone mad. There was nothing wrong and many things right with having tons of teams end their seasons happily and successfully. The vampire squid blood funnel and its media lampreys had other plans. Someday we will simply reach out and flick those gnats away.

    Agreed. I would also align the Quarterfinals for the traditional bowl matchups. For example, this year:

    Sugar Bowl: (SEC Champion)
    1. LSU v. 17. Memphis

    Rose Bowl: (B1G v. Pac12)
    2. Ohio State v. 6. Oregon

    Orange Bowl: (ACC Champion)
    3. Clemson v. 7. Baylor

    Fiesta Bowl: (Big 12 Champion)
    4. Oklahoma v. 5. Georgia

    Reseed after the Quarterfinals. Obviously, there would be seasons where the B1G/Pac 12 Champions might draw the short stick (e.g. B1G seeded #1, but has to play a top 4 Pac 12 Champion instead of a mid-teen seeded Group of Five Champion), but they would get to restore the importance of the Rose Bowl.

    I am surprised. Michigan is hanging with Alabama early and the Gophers are even with Auburn.

    Oops 1st quarter, not half!

    Gophers looking ok, other than that return.

    Alabama has a tendency to drop a deuce in their helmet when playing in non-championship bowl games.

    Also remember Harbaugh isn't so hot in bowl games.

    Auburn just got pushed 6 yards deep by Minnesota's O-Line to clinch the game.

    The two games say a lot- Minnesota gets coached and they can best an SEC team. Michigan's players regress, and the QB head coach can't get a QB to throw complete passes to very open players that would break the game open. Let alone the very overrated DC.
