@Wisguy First off, don't call me son.  You're not my dad. It sounds very condescending. Alright OLD MAN!, thanks :-D   Second, sports is never filled with should haves. That is like saying "Could care less". If something should have happened then it would have happened. But it didn't happen, so it can't possibly should have happened. Now, 'What Ifs', are a different story. Yes sports are full of "What Ifs". Hindsight is 20/20 as they say. Why doesn't it matter though, it didn't happen. It's fun to think of what could have happened, but it doesn't change anything. To argue about "What ifs" is just a waste of energy.

Lol, if we had a "mic drop" smiley it would've fit perfectly right there. :)

Bama just has sooo much more talent. Some of their 2nd string athletes are better than most teams starters. Saban always gets his players. AJ Macarron just past most wins by an Bama QB in history, I dont know if he has the numbers for Heisman but definitly mentionable.

I think everybody, the "experts", fans in general, and of course Alabama fans, are giving this team too much benefit of the doubt based on prior years (and I'm as big an Alabama fan as there is).

I suppose it's human nature to give credit based on the past. Heck, when I think of the Patriots my mind goes to when they were better than they've been for several years.

I don't know if they are the best team in the country this year (we'll see) but the eyeball test tells me they probably aren't and certainly not as good as last year's team. Not saying they don't deserve the benefit of doubt because any team that has won three out of four NCs would naturally get it, but that doesn't make it accurate for the current season.

So let me get this straight, you don't like it when people address your comments in a dismissive fashion.  Uhhmmm, OK.  You aren't familiar with this thing called "irony," are you?

I suppose if my alma mater had been gifted with a national championship via the most imaginary pass interference call in history, I too might get tired of all the "should have" and "that was completely ridiculous!" type comments for many years afterwards.

But tell us, what sports discussions do you consider to be more of a proper use of one's energy?  Which ones are so vastly more constructive and useful?  Can you give us a list of those sports topics that are acceptable and those which are not?  I really don't want to run afoul of anything on your list in the future.

In my bag: - Ping G20 driver, 10.5 deg. S flex - Ping G20 3W, 15 deg., S flex - Nickent 4dx 3H, 4H - Nike Slingshot 4-PW - Adams Tom Watson 52 deg. GW - Vokey 58 deg. SW -Ping Half Wack-E putter

I find it simply amusing how people can get so riled up over words on a message board. I mean it happens to everyone from time to time, but sometimes I think people are in a constant state of being pissed off. Good thing I am easily entertained!

Umm I think what you mean is sarcasm. Irony is completely different. Yep, OSU should not have won that game. The ball was tipped at the line, but why dwell on it, it doesn't change anything. There is no instant replay for games completed, that would diminish all football games. Yay he's upset and attacking me, point to me. Any topic is fine, just be ready for the consequences of any response. It is a you problem if you take my comments seriously. So I really don't give a damn.

I agree, though like all great teams, Alabama is looking better each week. They are probably the weakest Alabama team in the past few years, they do look vulnerable in some spots. I personally think people give to much credit, but Alabama keeps proving them right. So you got to give credit were credit is due.

Yeah, I'm usually scared of rivalry games when one of the teams is losing despite having good athletes (see LSU/Arkansas the last 2 years) but Florida seems to be too much of a train wreck for that to come into play.

In the "Careful what you wish for" category: Last year I hated the Alabama/Auburn game and said I hope Auburn gets it back together so the game would mean something.

Still true but they didn't have to improve quite THAT much. Ha ha!

I warned my wife when we first got married that I am hard to get along with for 365 days when Auburn beats Alabama.

My wife went to FSU for undergrad and Auburn for grad school. Needless to say, we'll be pulling for both today. Plus, it would be fun to play OSU if it came to that. :-)

Wow. So FSU gets the #1 rank, but I would hope that Auburn doesn't leapfrog OSU.

Ohio State is gonna have to play better against Michigan State than they did today or the Auburn win isn't gonna matter.

I don't think it will happen. It was a close win, on a crazy play. Alabama will hold some of the computer rankings that might block auburn. It isn't straight forward in the BCS. I think osu looked good. The defense played good for half a game. Gardner played one hell of a game. Michigan has shown to be good on offense, they suddenly decided to show up for a rivalry. Any body who knows anything about rivalries is, anything can happen, and win loss doesn't matter. The still put up over 40 points, looked unstoppable on offense again.

In the spirit of getting @saevel25 in a huff...

So let's just assume that Auburn blows up Bama next week (this is what if, so humor me) and Mizz blows up Aggy.  Ohio St. eeks out a win against _ichigan.

I'm guessing the rankings going into Conf Championship week would look like--

1. Fl St

2. Ohio St.

3. Auburn

4. Mizz.

Ohio St. would face Mich St. in the Big-X champtionship--let's just say they barely win that one as well but finish undefeated.  #3 Auburn would face #4 Mizzou in Atlanta.  If Auburn dominates that game, would it be enough to jump over Ohio St?  There is currently a good amount of separation between Ohio St. and Auburn, but what if Auburn just tees off on two top-4 teams on consecutive weeks?

Edit:  regardless we're in for some REALLY GOOD football the next two weeks.  I'm super stoked.


Nailed it so far.

    • Day 114 (07 Oct 22) - Continued setup drill routine (stance, grip, rotation into top of backswing, slo-mo thru impact).  
    • Science has come a long way since the 1940s.
    • Here are some thoughts in no particular order: Golf trips 2x a year - I have no problem with this. For a couple who has no kids in the house what is the big deal (unless we are talking 2 week trips to the UK)? If you guys are retired, aren't you taking trips together? If not, start. You worked all your life to have the time and money so enjoy it while you still have it.  Golf all day and drinking is the norm - that is a red flag. I don't mean to judge, but this seems excessive if its the routine. Most retired guys I know play 2-3 times a week and this would never fly health or wife-wise. These guys I am talking about don't rush either, they show up, warm up, play, have lunch, etc.  It is an experience, not a hurry up and get home (like when I was young with kids) rush round.  His shopping is his me time - give him the grocery list and put that me time to use. It sounds like there is some room for more WE time with all the hobbies.  You live in a new community - you really need to meet some people and get some activities going for your own self development. If you feel like you are waiting around for hubs, well that might be a decision point. My suggestion is seek some healthy balance or re-evaluate the situation. I would suggest the communication route first, seeing a therapist, but probably not taking it to an online forum.  I am not sure what else to say here. My wife and I work full-time (kids grown) and we don't have these issues because we spend plenty of time doing everything else together. She does have a professional life that she enjoys and has plenty of her own goals to accomplish. When I went on my golf trip without her, she told me to have fun and not to worry, she had plenty to catch up on and enjoyed not having to entertain me the whole extended weekend (3.5 days - 6 rounds). She has expressed that when I do retire, she needs me to stay busy for her sanity! I guess that means more golf, part-time job, volunteering, etc. Currently I play about twice a week but if I was retired I would play consistently 3 times a week and still have plenty of time to be a wonderful husband - forty extra hours is a lot of time to fill! 
    • LIV has hit some marks. They are playing the correct sport for OWGR points. Clubs and balls and all that Not that these guys were all that interesting in interviews before LIV, but it certainly hasn’t gotten any better.
