FiB- very interesting post. The below might be related...

I came to believe the worst outcome of a high school frosh-soph/JV season was a championship. Let them be hungry when we got `em at the varsity level. Hungry served us better.

Knew a SF 49er that played on the first Super Bowl team. His college team was awful. Probably won more games that championship season than four years of NCAA ball. Changed positions just to play the game. He was hungry.

For some reason I couldn't post in the music folder, so this belongs there but oh well..

Cool short video about Merry Clayton, the woman who sang that incredible vocal on The Rolling Stones "Gimme Shelter"

Agreed, Herman introduced a real run game. Combine that with a scrambling QB named Ward, that will not slide, but will spin for an extra three yards, and I see a new big school coach in the making. UH is a stepping stone to the big money. Briles, Sumlin. I guess Texas will take Herman from us on his way up. SIL got the opportunity to ride to Tulsa on a private flight with the UH Dean and others to the Tulsa game. Time for UH to pull out the check book. They built the stadium, third ward is getting refaced with yuppie condos, time to step up to the next level and keep some local talent in H town.

4 teams make it to the playoff

ACC has clemson and florida state undefeated and no one else with a shot
Big10 has michigan state, iowa and ohio state undefeated with no one else with a shot 
Big12 has OSU, TCU, Baylor undefeated and OU looking in with 1 loss
SEC has LSU undefeated and A&M, Alabama, and florida looking in with 1 loss
Pac12 has Utah undefeated with stanford looking in with 1 loss
Notre Dame has 1 loss and is looking in
Several mid majors are looking in if they go undefeated and 2 power 5 conferences have 2 loss champs

Like last year we are going to have teams left out that were worthy.
Take the 5 champions and 3 at-large teams. 
Win your conference as a power 5 team and you are in. Period. After that you rely on ratings and power rankings and public perception to get one of the 3 at-large bids. Don't get one of them you can complain but you could have won your conference and gotten an automatic bid. WIn and you earn a spot. Otherwise you are begging for spot based on being 2nd best in your conference.
Tired of college football being a beauty pageant top to bottom. Win and you are in and themedia gets the at-large picks to toss around and get ratigns on

Thoughts and prayers going out to all those at the Oklahoma State game after the tragedy at the parade.  Must be so hard for players and fans to be at a football game, knowing that 3 people lost their lives outside the stadium just a few hours earlier.  May they all find peace.
