Many absurd things have been proffered on this board recently, especially regarding college football prognostications that simply did not come true. [e.g., Pretender State = FAIL]

Until this year, I had almost completely forgotten about 1998. Maybe Pretender State will make another aborted run in 14 years in 2026.

Good to see Mildcatfan handling it so well that the sigline has already been changed to lash out at what hurts the most. I understand that six (6) BCS championships in a row and eight (8) out of 14 is pretty tough to swallow for an SEC-hater. That sucker punch to the gut from 5-5 Baylor will eventually heal and scab over. But it will leave a(nother) nasty scar.

I know many of us are perplexed that Alabama lost. Coach Saban was also concerned with his team's intensity and play during the game. When reviewing the game film and finding numerous errors, especially by the upperclassmen on the team, he was really concerned.

He was visibly distraught and confused that his most veteran players were making the most errors. When he confronted them, Barrett Jones, a senior lineman, stood up and spoke for the entire team.

"Coach, we're sorry that we let you and the University down, but we just couldn't stand the thought of having to go meet with Obama for a third time in just four short years."

It seems to me that the old timers who endured that kind of punishment and abuse would be much more likely to ejoy the comforts of the "no touch" era in those climate controled domes. Than it would be for the cream puffs to give up those comforts.

Congrats to Peyton Manning, the greatest quarterback ever, on another great game throwing for 3 TDs.

-1 to Manning (not even in the top 5 this week):

1. M. Schaub HOU 527 yds, 5 TD's Final - OT
2. C. Henne JAC 354 yds, 4 TD's Final - OT
3. A. Luck IND 334 yds, 2 TD's Final
4. T. Brady NE 331 yds, 3 TD's Final
5. T. Romo DAL 313 yds Final - OT

But look who is at #4 this week, piling up huge yards, also with 3 TD passes, in spite of not needing to, with the outcome decided early and victory well in hand.

Long live Tom Brady, the best QB of his generation, with 3 (count 'em, 3) Super Bowl Rings and a 2012 victory over a yet-to-be-great Peyton Manning and his Broncos.

Ask Peyton Manning if he would swap places with Henne or Luck this week. Top 5? LMAO!




I think someone stole their CU username from this magazine cover. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

So, you are finally admitting that Peyton Manning is Great, though not as great as Brady, but nonetheless, great. One down, one to go.

That's the way I took it as well.

This is real simple guys. NFL owners are no different than any other employer as to how they pay their players. Top performers make more money than average perfomers. Who is (and by far) the top paid QB (base salary) in the NFL today? Peyton Manning. Why is he the top paid QB? Because he is the top performer.
