    I'm good to go with either

    Yup. If you ever want to kick things around, I'm also fairly conversant with the NFL, NBA, MLB, and the Grand Slam tourney's.

    I did see with the officiating miscalls, but I don't think they determined the outcome. The Crimson Tide operates on a different level than the Irish. I could tell about eight minutes in that ND couldn't handle either the Bama O-line push or the brute force and speed of the Bama running backs. Smash-mouth football that physically pounds an opponent into submission. I agree that ND didn't belong there. They would probably be only the 6th or 7th best team in the SEC.

    The outcome was never in question. However ND players gave up in the first quarter and only went through the motions the rest of the game. That is the difference between the pros' and college. In the NFL you play through such things. A team full of 19-22 year olds haven't learned that lesson yet. If ND played to their potential the whole game they still would have lost but they would have not been embarrassed.

    Once again the B.S. system was exposed for being a fraud. The ND clearly did not belong in the game and they would not have been there if we had a playoff. I lost interests after two highly questionable calls in the first quarter, both calls really took the wind out of ND. 1) the ND receiver catches the ball, puts both feat down then bobbles the ball while going out of bounds...thats a catch, but was ruled incomplete and stalled the drive. 2) Alabama clearly fumbled the ball on the punt but again was bailed out by the refs. ND never was the same after those calls.

    No doubt whatsoever. The Irish got smoked 42-14. I finish with a 4 and 2 bet sheet. Only so-so.

    My congrats to Nick Sabin and the Alabama Crimson Tide

    I am going to hold my nose and root for ND.

    THE GAME is tonight. I think this one will come down to who wins the Bama-offense/Irish-defense line war. Both lines are huge, quick, and dominating.

    Sabin is the wildcard. He eats/drinks/pisses/shits football 24/7. Nobody prepares/motivates his team to win better than Crimson Nick.

    The latest is that Chip will stay with Oregon for a while longer. Now only the cloud of the ncaa remains.

As it stands now, Oregon will almost certainly be required to appear before the NCAA Committee On Infractions (COI) in the spring of 2013. The possibility of Oregon being stripped of scholarship slots and/or other penalties is very real. Kelly will most likely depart Oregon before the COI hearing and probably wind up in either Philly or Cleveland.
    We shall see on both counts. The problem with the NCAA is that it is a vindictive good old boy club made up of people who are still loyal to their old college and like nothing better than to stick it to their old rivals. However this matter isn't so black and white.There is a lot of grey area in regards to Oregon's position. The NCAA is also facing a lawsuit from Penn State for overstepping their boundaries, and I suspect that is staying their hand somewhat and will lesson the severity of any penalties aimed at Oregon because if they do go whole hog on the penalties Oregon is bound to appeal and perhaps sue as well. The other problem is that the NCAA needs some major clarifications in the rule book.

    It looks like out of 7 NFL teams Chip is down to two but both are already looking elsewhere. The Oregonian has been trying to oust Kelly since he became a head coach and have been doom and gloom about the NCAA. I think many of the paper's sportswriters went on suicide watch when he turned down Tampa bay last year. Because of their antics and unabashed rodent love for Oregon State beavers, Kelly has all but shut out The Oregonian sportswriters and they have proven to be a childish lot. It's a fun circus to watch. So far Chips are mightier than the pen.

    Four out of five so far...

    NC - Defense wins championships. I'll take the Irish
    Rose - Stanford
    Cotton - Texas A&M
    Sugar - Florida
    Fiesta - Oregon
    Orange - I'll take Florida State

    Honorable mention - Northwestern beat Miss St 34-20 in the Gator Bowl. The Wildcats first bowl win since the 1949 Rose Bowl.

    With the NCAA nipping at his ass, Oregon coach Chip Kelly is seriously exploring his NFL options.


    Four out of five is better than Meatloaf. The best that he had was two out of three.
    Let the NCAA nip... Kelly can stand to lose a few pounds here and there. It has taken them over two years and they MIGHT have a ruling this spring. They know what they have would not stand up to scrutiny of a real court. They had more evidence with Cam and Auburn but did nothing. Hell, Lyles wasn't sure of what he did and he is the centerpiece of the investigation. Even so, if he did "work for Oregon" he most certainly worked for other colleges as he is very close to the SEC and big 12 conferences and that has to be scrutinized as well. The NCAA doesn't really want to open up that can of worms. Then there is the fact that the player in question Seastrunk, never played a down for Oregon and left to play for another college so Oregon never derived a benefit from the allegations. There is also the question of Texas using the NCAA as a watch dog in retaliation of Oregon recruiting on Texas home turf. There is a reason the ncaa is moving so slowly. They have nothing as far as real evidence and if they are not careful they will be exposed as frauds. The ncaa is doing the only thing they can do, lay back and let the rumor mills destroy Oregon's recruiting. So far that has not happened.

    Chip explored Tampa bay last year and this year a few NFL teams are coming to him. It is only right he should look at the offers when they roll out the red carpet and throw money at him. Under the right circumstances Chip will move on. Whether or not any of the NFL teams are a good fit for Chip remains to be seen. He is not going to jump to the NFl just for the sake of doing so. Make no mistake though. Chip is not jumping to the NFL or another college to escape the NCAA sanctions like Pete Carroll did. One thing is for sure. Everyone but Duck fans desperately want Chip to move to the NFL.

    Nice. I am hoping you are right about the Fiesta bowl too. Right now #3 Florida is stinking up the place so depending on the N.C. game Oregon can finish #2 or #3 when the dust settles. With luck ND wins that handily and we can put this SEC dominance BS behind us so the polls next year will be more realistic. Still pulling for an 8 game playoff though.
