  1. I have my tickets for the B's vs the Oil on Sunday. Odds that Chia has traded McJesus to Arizona for a third-round pick before the weekend?
  2. Very little difference between No. 3 (4-6) and No. 130 (4-7) this season. https://twitter.com/cbssports/status/894971396379553792
  3. Just because we have to do this ... EIGHT-TEAM PLAYOFF (with P5 "autobids" ... using current conference best records) 1. Georgia 8. Washington 4. Clemson 5. Oklahoma (wins TB w/ TCU based on CFP ranking) 2. Alabama 7. Wisconsin 3. Notre Dame 6. Miami With no autobids, TCU would slot in at 6, bumping down Miami and Wisky, and Washington out. EIGHT-TEAM PLAYOFF (with P5 autobids and one G5 spot) 1. Georgia 8. Central Florida 4. Oklahoma (wins TB w/ TCU based on CFP ranking) 5. Miami 2. Alabama 7. Washington 3. Notre Dame 6. Wisconsin Obviously, not ideal because adding UCF would bump out Clemson, the current lowest ranked team not leading a P5 conference. 16-TEAM PLAYOFF (with autobids for all 10 conference "champs") 1. Georgia (SEC) 16. Arkansas State (Fun Belt) 8. Wisconsin (B1G) 9. Washington (Pac-12) 4. Clemson (at-large) 13. Toledo (MAC) 5. Oklahoma (B12) 12. Central Florida (AAC) 2. Alabama (at-large) 15. Florida Atlantic (C-USA) 7. Miami (ACC) 10. Auburn (at-large) 3. Notre Dame (at-large) 14. Boise State (MWC) 6. TCU (at-large) 11. USC (at-large) Used CFP rank, then Sagarin ratings for seedings. Last teams out (aka in a sad "State"): Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, Oklahoma State All I have to say is, who wouldn't want this just for the prospects of Saban vs. Kiffin in the first round?
  4. True, but the computers don't seem to care about single head-to-head, for whatever reason. Case in point: Penn State > Ohio State > Oklahoma. And likewise, Sagarin also still has Va. Tech a spot ahead of Miami, even though Miami's SOS is better. It's weird.

But interesting that the ratings still love Penn State, Ohio State and Virginia Tech, but don't like Oklahoma. Also, five Big Ten teams in the top 14.
  6. Great point. The first goal was a nice tough angle shot after the puck bounced right to him off Bergeron's skate, the other was a great tip on Orpik's shot from the point -- Rask had no chance . What can you do. We did meet a couple on the T that was in town from Virginia for the Spartan Race at Fenway and was looking for things to do, and just happened to notice the Caps were in town. I hope they enjoyed the win from their nosebleed seats. Now it looks like Marchand is out against the Wilds tonight ... partly a result of the hit he took from Carlson, after which he smashed his stick when it got to the bench and the blade flew back onto the ice during play. The refs didn't even flinch. @Bill Brasky's boys already are whining about the condition of the ice at the Garden during today's morning skate. I noticed they were shoveling it during breaks more than usual the other night, and it's in the 60s and humid here in Boston today.
  7. In case anyone is wondering, THIS is a clear example of targeting. I don't think the ref even had time to put on the headset before they confirmed it.
  8. Looking forward to seeing them get their game back on track tomorrow night in person. The B's haven't beaten the Capitals since 2013-14.
  9. But ASU had given up > 30 points a game for an eternity. No reason the kicker should have even needed to get off the plane for that one.
  10. To be fair, Turner's beard was hanging over the left batter's box.
