    I think undefeated UCF should get in over any 2 loss P5 team. Not saying it would actually happen, but putting in a 2 loss team over an undefeated G5 squad would be a very bad look for college football. At that point, you are basically saying G5 are all playing for best New Year's Day bowl position from Spring Practice. Whether it actually happens is irrelevant so long as Cinderella believes she might actually get to go to the Ball. Once...

    I think there are 2 ways SEC gets 2 teams in. 1 - LSU beats Bama in a close game at Baton Rouge. Bama's only loss and they don't go to SEC Championship game. Unless tOSU, Clemson and ND are undefeated, I think 1 loss Bama gets in (along w/ SEC Champ who obviously gets in). 2 - Bama loses SEC Champ game to UGa. That's Bama's only loss. 1 loss Bama gets in (unless scenario above).

    Not necessarily. As mentioned above, undefeated ND, Clemson and tOSU and Bama doesn't win the SEC, they are out. Of course, that's not going to happen, but that is a currently viable scenario where a 1 loss Bama doesn't make it.

    I think pitch clock is more important to "pace of play" rather than length of games. I'd rather watch a 3:30 game where pace is good than 2:40 where there are significant "lulls" and no action. (Obviously, a 2:40 game has much > likelihood to be well-paced as well.)

    Top to bottom as far as 2018 $. Opening Day position in () Votto (1B) - play him Homer - unload him for a bucket of balls. If no takers, bring him to Spring Training in the bullpen. Don't let him anywhere near the rotation. Suarez (3B) - play him Iglesias (Closer) - $5.71M in 2019 & 2020, Arb in 2021 & FA in 2022. He's a bargain. Continue to role him out there as your closer. If team continues to struggle, entertain offers at trade...

    Saw a funny reply to a tweet asking if this was a worse loss than the UVa hoops. David Padgett asked "Do I get a vote?" :lol2:

    Not optimal. Coaches should try to avoid. This incident - "5 yd penalty for me, not 15." Quick grab, let's loose, didn't shake him or lead him around by the facemask (which we've all seen). If the kid is OK with it, which he is, I'm less concerned. Move along. Nothing to see here.

    Not to the level of UVa hoops, but approaching that. The 3rd down pass was brilliant when FSU was stacking the box against the run. The 1st down pass with an unproven QB is not justifiable. Allowing FSU to score on a basic quick pop pass is inexcusable. The # of passes across the middle that were missed was mind-boggling. Hall's drop of a wide open pass was a critical mistake (obviously). Not sure where you go from here. Ugh!

    Where to start? "we are close" - close to what? .500 baseball? Wild Card? Looking respectable? Not sure on any of those fronts. "closer than most people realize" - I think most people realize the Reds are "not close." "I am not sold on Iglesias as a closer" - save % > 90%; also, the last concern for a team that has lost 98, 94, 94 and 93 (and counting) games over the past 4 seasons is the competence of their closer.

    Bring back the toothpick! Nats clearly dropped the ball firing him and he was successful when in Cincy (certainly compared to the current state of affairs). Not sure you want Dusty handling a young pitching staff, but you take what you can get (assuming he would want to come back).

    Good news: probably won't enter the UK game at 5-6 with bowl eligibility on the line. :) Although UofL is currently awful, FSU and Ga Tech are the next 2 opponents and they are similarly slumping. BC will be tough (and likely difficult to watch). Maybe we get the playbook again from the Demon Deacs the following week. Clemson may not be as competitive as 2 yrs. ago. :) @Syracuse, v. NC St. and v. UK will be easier to evaluate as we get...

    UVa 2x in the last 2 weeks of the regular season should be fun. Gouge out my eyes with a melon baller.
