I missed it, was it something derogatory/offensive? Hopefully not.. but I was just trying to poke fun at the old timers around here. Nothing personal man.

I was trying to be sarcastic back. Veiled attempts at sarcasm over text don't convey intent to well. My apologies. I know that you were joshing around. :)

Subsitute Pitt for TTUN or PSU and we are golden, and on the same page. :)

Did I get my Quad or was it broken? :) or :(

Alpha male is about to be taken over... Just because your old doesn't mean you deserve deference for that point alone. You need to earn deference/respect. If that isn't the case, than I should respect Osama Bin Laden and Kim Jonj Il . :P

Completely hypothetical, but what if you never 'settle' and keep your hopes to high, thus never finding that person that you were hoping to find with your high standards and don't ever get to be with someone? Is 'settling' for someone who is about 80% there for you worse than a life of solitude?

Note: I am not trying to belittle anyone here who thinks high standards are a good/bad/indifferent thing, just asking an honest question since I have had some fairly bad relationships (and high standards make waiting an agony) that failed and would like your honest opinions.

Would you rather settle for someone that is 70-80% of the way to your standards or grow old alone?

Hush! I recently went on one, after finding out some interesting information about my 'fiance' and the person didn't stay through dinner after they found out my religious denomination - or lack thereof. :P That has happened to me a total of 5 times. They eat the food, go to 'freshen up' and never come back after THEY bring up religion.

Were the other ones as bad as the first two? Hopefully not.

6 out of 12 isn't that impressive... lol. tOSU is 1/8 for wins 3/8 for tries.. right? I mean.. we have been almost as many times as you're CONFERENCE has won. It seems bad, but we have been more than the Pac 10 / Big East / ACC. Alone. Just us. tOSU is pulling in 37.5% of the national championship appearances. :)

Some think you need to win it all, when in actuality making the title game is an accomplishment in it's own as well. :D I am not proud that we lost those two title games, but we went and that counts for something. You can say that we 'didn't show up', but we showed up more than Texas did those years, or OU did those years, or USC... You see my point? ;)

Depends on where she's trying to move to... moving might be an issue if she is trying to move to the latrine or the couch/bed.

Out of curiosity, what part of the country are you moving towards?
Posted Friday July 23, 2010, About: NCAAF Playoff...how would you structure the format?
I saw that, and based off of what historical records I could find, the weather for the southern locations is pretty comparable when you are taking into account September in regards to northern teams, but when you throw in October and November averages it lowers the temp differences a bit.

There in lies the problem. Each team is built to play in it's environs, and thus, they don't plan to have their players play in the other 'extremes' (Used loosely, because it isn't extremes to the home team but is to the away team). This is probably the reason why OOC games are played in the beginning of the season, as opposed to just spreading them out through out the season equally. It wouldn't be that hard I imagine to move some games around and have a USC-tOSU (past example) game in November in Cbus, aside from USC never agreeing to it.

I think that tOSU should be one of the front runners for this season considering all that they bring back and how they ended last season. If Bama is favored after losing everything they lost, than I don't see it as a big jump to presume that tOSU would be too.. considering uTx is starting from scratch offensively, UF is and so is OU. I'm not biased here. Just stating.

PSU might have been but they have a new QB as well. I'm worried about what Northwestern might do to some teams this year. :) :D

How do you figure that the Northern teams have the advantage weather wise no matter which region of the country the bowls are played in? Shouldn't the games be representative of the entire culture of college football, and not just limited to southern locales?
Posted Friday July 23, 2010, About: NCAAF Playoff...how would you structure the format?
Similar discussions have happened across this swatch of land that I call the Buckeye state, and I find that even if the bowl attendance is broken up 50/50 (can't actually be) that the 'home' team (regional team playing there) would still have the advantage because generally speaking fans of the conference still cheer for the conference team. A UF team in the Rose Bowl playing Arizona in the Rose Bowl for instance is going to get Arizona the home field advantage, even though both are used to the nice weather (relatively speaking) for the simple fact that the fans there are going to support the Pac 10.

Or am I mistaken there? I feel that weather can be a limiting factor, and would love for some bowl games to come up here. Though I don't see this ever happening because the Big 4 bowl games are all historical and are so popular that it would be hard to have a new one broken up. Not to mention that financially/politically, the cities those games take place in are not going to just let the regional conference leave to go play there game in a northern state where the weather might be inclement.

Hell, I'd even be up for there being a bowl game played in Washington State or something like that just to get the Bowl Monopoly taken out of the South. Can you imagine the overhead visuals... the majestic Lake Washington with gorgeous Husky Stadium. Beautiful. A lot more beautiful than downtown Atlanta imo.

We were referring to Conference games, not OOC conference games (Which include bowl games). So yes, I was stating that they are a better conference because of their bowl record. I was stating that they can't be the best conference just because they play each other. There has to be some corollary, and the SEC playing its teams solely does not make it the best team.

I do realize that recruiting rankings add into the foundation, but we have all seen how accurate those can be. *rolls eyes* Bowl records I think are the best example of a conference's strength because then the teams have had a good length of time to mesh together. OOC games in the beginning of the season can be barometers for this as well, if they are not the first game of the season.

I wasn't debating SEC's strength. I was just stating that people who say that the SEC is the best because they play people in the SEC is an annoying argument. If they were to say that they're the best because they win their bowl games, that would be a lot different.

Leetness was just a term. Should I have said 'elite stature' instead? Pardon me for not making myself clear. It wasn't supposed to be a knock on the SEC. But a knock on the logic of some fans' who say that is why it's the best.

If it doesn't matter so much, then why are you here? It is important because WE make it important. Yes, the same kind of importance like religion. Money. Cars. People make it important, so it is important. There was a time without those things, and it was not important to them, even some people would rather do stuff still without religion, a car, or money. I for one tend to do stuff for family friends and such (computer stuff) as a favor and they repay however they can. It isn't difficult.

Anyways, a lot of people care about what these guys say because they have the power. Why do you care what the Pope says? (Not saying your Catholic). Why do we care what Obama says? Why do we care what BP does....?

It is all relative. Stuff is only as important as the public makes it. This isn't supposed to be a philosophical debate. You might not think there has ever been a NCG, so why even watch the product than if there is no end result?

TZ, you don't [b]LOVE[/b] Circular Arguments do you? I absolutely abhor them. I think they are the worst creation ever, and people who use them to defend the SEC leetness are the worst kind of debaters. :(

You say it is easy fodder, yet [b]NO[/b] professional sports entity is able to garnish a third of the enthusiasm that the NCAAF FCS gets for it's bowl season. People get excited about the Finals in NBA and the Super Bowl, but how many people are fanatically following the rest of the playoffs? I would wager less than 50%. Not to mention that the Super Bowl is mostly a corporate retreat kind of event with ticket prices now a days.

Yes, it is not the best thing that was ever thought of. But controversy breaths life into an event, and the BCS has created what (in [i]my[/i] opinion at least is one of the better post season formats considering ratings, money, etc). It is the best we can do until someone makes a play-off which I don't see happening any time soon.

Who do you root for? If they ever won a "NCG" you can NOT claim it as a NCG following your logic. No one has ever been a NC apparently in your world. Not uT of 2005. Not UF of 2006 or Bama of 07. Not PSU of 94.. Err.. Big Red of 94. Li'l jab at my PSU fans. :)

In regards to Texas? Defensive stability. Experienced quarterback. Experienced receivers. Experienced starters. Texas lost a LOT of power last year, and yes their replacements look good. But we don't know how good he will actually do yet in a schedule.

In regards to Bama... yes I think that Bama could beat us more than we can beat them. I think that we would be about even with Texas, and expect TP to continue from his RB and spring improvements. Have you seen his footwork in regards to passing this year? It has increased/improved by a significant amount. Many people are saying this.

I think that we could beat BSU more often than not. I am not saying that we would wipe the floor with them, just that we could beat them. I feel that we are probably the third best team in the country. I don't see how you can say we are 4th at best. UF isn't the same team they were the previous 4 years, so we don't know how their replacement QB is going to do.

What?! I didn't know that.. can someone please elaborate or direct me to a post about such things? I didn't know that they did that... if this really does happen.
