    My favourite moment of opening day outside of the SEC sucking was Nebraska remembering their punter in this way

    Electric... so classy. How about that upset.

    The national championship game tonight is shaping up to be a great one, I love when there's the revenge aspect. Clemson said they wanted Alabama, well, here you go!

    The Tigers just embarrassed #2 ranked OSU, handing Urban Meyer his first ever shutout. After everyone spending all week talking about their offense, (who did put up 31 points vs. OSU's #3 defense mind you,) that must have been immensely gratifying. Their coach, Dabo Swinney, is now being recognized as among the best in cfb.

    The Tide is stupid good, they put up plenty of points (basically tied Clemson in ppg) and their talent level on defense is fucking unreal, they just suffocate people and were easily #1. They've won 4 of the last 7 titles, 25 straight games including top 10 wins over Texas A&M (x2,) LSU, Michigan State, Clemson and Tennessee. If anything the program looks stronger than ever, people would give their left nut to play for Saban.

    I don't follow college football during the season much but man I love the BCS. There's already been some wildly entertaining bowls and I don't care who wins tonight just hoping for another!

    I was bored and just typed this out in case anyone forgot and/or casual fans like myself needed to be seduced into catching the game at 8.

    Yeah I have a mental block with thinking the Rose Bowl is the national championship, as stated I'm pretty casual.

    After the most boring wildcard weekend in recent memory I'm really hoping for a barnburner tonight!

    It won't be easy to top last year's game.

    Rainey grabbing the kickoff and immediately going out of bounds at the 3 wasn't Leon Lett-stupid, but goddamn close.

    The game ended on that play basically haha.

    This is the one year where the Tournament won't work if Bama doesn't win. To me, with a loss they still are the National Champs. With that said I hate Bama and hope they lose (and would be okay with an injury to Saban in the process)
