The conference championships are upon us.
There’s Top-4 action in the SEC, the best punter in the nation against the second school to mutually part with Gary Andersen midseason, and a Marvel Comics brawl with Wolverine against Hawkeye.
Good for these teams for piggybacking some exposure off of the big California–USC game.
I'm loving the enormous Cal flag behind Herbie's head on Game Day! Who has that here in Atlanta?! (I'm here too)
I am not a ND fan but if they get in the CFP and win the whole thing it will give me a chuckle that Kelly bailed (obtained a southern accent along the way). Also the new HC at ND, Freeman would have a natty 2 games into his tenure, LOL.
Golden Bear fun facts to know and tell: This is the first time Cal has won the Big Game during a losing season since 1994. If we beat U$C today it will be our first win over them in a losing season since 1999; it will also mean that we'll have beaten both of our most hated rivals in a season in which we finished below .500 for the first time since 1941. We also beat UCLA that year. 1941 is , the only season in which Cal has beaten all three of its rivals and not gone to the Rose Bowl (Cal's only other win that year was against St. Marys).
That should be ballgame in Atlanta...
Again, the modern CFP rule remains: what result MOST benefits the SEC, because that is the one that is going to happen. 'Bama +7 was an f-ing lock.
Cal and SC are playing in the “Disappointing Season” bowl to determine who was the most under achieving Pac 12 program of 2021.
Everybody who has played Oregon except Stanford and Utah are asking "Who are these ducks" They ain't the same ducks we saw!"
I sense a much better atmosphere in this Vegas stadium than Levi's.
I’m just here to bitch about the p12 championship game being played on a Friday.
Hat tip to Chitwood for calling SEC title game. Talent difference between QBs was the difference. When do we get one of those Uber talented QBs????
I have two nephews who went to Iowa (only one cares about FB.) Not looking good for them so far.
Georgia is a joke, an impersonator, just a bad team, and YET another really shitty conference championship (3 in a row now).
Unnofficial survey: Who here drinks Dr Pepper?
I have never had a Dr Pepper and I don't recall the last time I witnessed someone else drinking a Dr Pepper.
This SEC championship game, in 2 - 3 weeks, will be known as the Omicron bowl. I'm not sure I've seen one mask in the entire stadium.
Utah State looking sharp. Practically blowing out Aztecs.
B12 championship game sucked almost as bad as the PAC12 game. So far these games are all bad. Aranda got bailed out after going for it on 4th deep in his own territory that allowed OSU back into the game.
I watched the Oregon-Utah game after the fact. I was able to fast forward to all of the key plays. What is astounding is the beatdown delivered by Utah with all of its 3 star players and Oregon with its 4 and 5 star players. Hopefully we will witness this tonight as the last Power 5 conference teams play.
Its fascinating that Utah is the best team in the Pac-12.
How bad is this PAC12 Championship game? It is so bad the announcers are bored out of their skull. How does Mario get an extension, he's not a good coach. And anyone's grandma can recruit to Oregun, so keeping him cuz he's a good recruiter makes no sense. If I were the AD no way I extend him. Not even sure why Oregun picked a FL guy to be their HC.
That game sucked and did not rep the PAC12 (or it confirmed it is a weak conference).
Utah always seems to get better as the season goes on
I expected way more action here tonight. Utah has this on lock.
Goood lord Oregon’s QB is awful
