    The Puppies got much love today by the selection committee and help by TCU and a few others. Maybe now the PAC 12 fans will stop whining about how unfair the process is. Contrary to your "stick a fork in them comments" last year, the Irish are right back in the mix striking fear in the hearts of opponents. That's what an elite program does.

    Now on to The Citrus Bowl... playing on New Years Day is where it's at. :)

    If you think that fawning is bad, you should hear the drool fest going on at the Hero's Golf Tournament. Glad to see Tiger back and playing pretty well, and realize this is his tournament, but holy shaittt it's near R-rated. Fowler lapped the field in the end...amazing final round.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention that I'm already noticing Tiger swing really hard... more so with each round. That will not bode well for him.

    You might want to research the New Years Six, what is required to qualify and how they are selected by the committee.
    Hint.....# 15 doesn’t get in and the Citrus Bowl isn’t one of them.
    Continued irrelevance since 1988.

    Hopefully this is what you'll be saying in a few years about UGA and Coach Smart.

    Oklahoma has not seen a rush game like UGA's this year and still they gave up an average of 144 yds per game.

    Looks like Sony's mri came back negative. Great news.

    Don't need to... Puppies got some fortunate help and you should be elated. ND plays on Jan 1.

    Not quite...December 29th. Cotton Bowl, which is a New Years 6 game. December 30th, the Orange Bowl and the Fiesta Bowl, which are also New Years 6 games.

    Are you still using the Mayan calendar? Look forward to seeing the Spartans play the Cougars on the 28th.

    As I mentioned earlier OK is a tough match-up. Baker can light it up on any given play and we haven’t faced an offense like this.

    Confident? No way. More like cautiously optimistic.

    Also, congrats to Roquan. Best UGA linebacker I've ever seen.
