Who do we want to win to win this SEC game if we are rooting for chaos?

It's win and you're in, so if you're looking for chaos you want Georgia to win so that Arkansas can go after Malzahn right away.

Georgia winning is the path that makes the most difficult sell for the committee to justify putting alabama in. Combined with an OSU loss imo that creates the most amusing situation in how the committee handles the playoff selection.

They are better, but watching Wisconsin reminds me of watching us. #notelitespeed

I feel like we have a couple guys with elite speed this year.
Luke's stock is rising as Winters continues to validate his greatness. Add Luke and Winters to my list! Also, EMAWBLAST! and Tobias!

Hornibrook's noodle arm makes it moot, kinda like when Ertz's was Hertz

That missed PI that would have offset the holding call was probably some nice ammo for conspiracy theorists

When I saw Hornibrook's noodle arm, and the #12, and the left handed QB, the first thing came to my mind was Allan Evridge.

Dumpster.  Fire.

Currently in 2nd OT and ESPN is reporting Frost to Nebraska.  I'm sure that's making for a great fan experience in stadium right now.
Indeed.

I was at this game with my wife, a UCF alumna.  We didn't have signal to do any kind of browsing, but texts and push notifications were getting through.  She got the blast from ESPN just a minute or so before the winning interception.  There's been such an aura of inevitability around the news, so I think she had already come to terms with it.

I think most of the people around us were still oblivious or in denial, however, as there were loud chants of "Stay!" and "We want Frost!" leading to and during the award presentation.

We also attended the UCF/USF game the week prior, and there was a level of electricity at these games that brought me back to the '98 and '00 Nebraska games.  Maybe it was the bouncing.  Regardless, I would trade Baylor and WVU straight up for these two teams.

If anyone had doubts about the effect a play caller has on a game, you should watch Texas Tech in the Birmingham Bowl. This is an absolute clinic in shitty play calling, Tech should have this game put away. They keep doing really stupid crap like throwing on 2nd and 3rd and goal from the three, leading to an interception, and throwing on 3rd and 10 from their own 20 with 90 seconds left in the half, leading to a sack.

Charles Strong always could beat Texas Tech.  Not sure firing him was a great move by Texas.

If Snyder is going to stick around we should just run Army's offense and hope for the best.

are you sure you are a MU fan?  Losing to bad KU teams should always be a fireable offense

Hopefully they're about to lose to a bad Mizzou team.

I cheered for Charlie and the Bulls but granted he did piss me off when they went for it on 4th down twice in the second half instead of kicking field goals.  Down by 7 and take a pass on 6 easy points.  :facepalm:

So what’s the B12 record so far in bowl games?  Just turned on this Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl and WVU is gonna get torched I guess

Looks like there's still plenty of good seats available for the Zaxby's Heart of Dallas Bowl.  Like 60000 or 70000 seats.  Go 'Eers.
