When you pay HC's millions and predicate that pay on their winning/bowl games/championships/playoffs/etc then you just have to expect 'impressing dances'.

Honor and respectability is all good, but butting that against millions of dollars and all that is required is to schedule a couple of LSOP's to get enough wins to make a bowl game?

And, no, I am not advocating that honor and respectabiltiy take a back seat to money...

In CBB, they can just play enough to get a good seed in the conference tournament...win that and they are in the March Madness. The regular season is almost meaningless...the main goal is to get into the NCAA Tournament. MSST made it one year during an improbable run in the Conference Tournament ... 2008 they were 17-12...won the SEC tourny and made the NCAA...promptly lost to Washington in first game...

In CFB it is the wins that count. Perhaps the Committee will require a more SOS, but we'll see.

Team A beats Team b three times and yet is ranked lower following the "playoff" and the rankings are based on the playoffs...

So it isn't how well the team did during the season, but how well they did at the end of the season, thus making the season only important in that it gets the team into the playoffs.

and the team could just wait and win the conference tournament, making the whole season meaningless...meh

Never said the Polls were accurate...just what we had .... but the Playoffs are FAR from accurate....

I don't think the colonel would use 'affronted' in everyday conversation...

Just sayin'

When I lived in Dallas used to go eat at a place called Smokey Bryans or Red Bryans...one was the Dad and one was the son...Dad's place was great. Across from Parkland Hospital...had to eat at your car as only about 20 sitting places inside little shack. He would smoke up a certain amount and when that was gone he would close up. Usually right after lunch.

You could drive by and see guys in three piece suits standing by their cars with some packing paper over the hoods eating....it was that good.

And yes, it was beef.

But then I moved to the South and learned the error of my ways...

I'll be too busy eating some mighty fine port baby back ribs....

Well, I do like a beef hot dog....but that is more grilling than BBQ..

No argument...

1. Chili sans beans
2. BBQ is pork only.

This.....

Amazing the number of Nauthen'rs who think New Orleans is a scary place to go...and they live in NY!!!! LOL.

Every place has the area where you have to be alert and cautious, just gotta know where they are.

And every town, big or small, has some good eatin' places.

Been to Detroit (tho not within the past 8-10 years) and wasn't impressed. The one thing I remember was being told to make sure I rent a Ford.

I was speaking of the Coney's I've had on Coney Island...the NY ones seem to like beans, esp Nathan's. I was so excited to get to have one when I first saw the place, then so disappointed with the chili.

::sigh::
