    Evidently 34-10 loss was not enough

    The rose bowl game is being moved from SoCal to Dallas due to the rising number of covid cases in SoCal. Isn’t it worse in Texas? Lmao

    California is actually way worse - Los Angeles is having almost as many daily cases as all of Texas - but it was really moved because California refused to allow any fans to try to control their outbreak. Texas, on the other hand, doesn't care about spreading Covid so the # of cases doesn't matter.

    Maybe ND can get Jones, Harris, Smith and a third of Bama's defense to sit this one out. Could make it a good game, and give ND a 2nd "signature win".

    This sucks.

    After a surge of Pac-12 teams opted out of bowl season and other teams, according to Monken, threatened to opt out if paired against Army, the Independence Bowl canceled its game and the Black Knights were left without a postseason destination. Monken and Army administrators informed the team following dinner at a 6:15 p.m. ET meeting.

    "We had guys in tears," Monken said. "We pulled off the biggest wins of these seniors' career, they just won the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy back, that's going to be their legacy, and they're looking forward to playing in a bowl game one time together, before they go off in the United States Army, and we're sitting here telling them, 'Sorry, guys, you can't play.'
    ...
    "I'm not pointing the finger at any one person," he said. "It's just collectively, as a bowl season, whatever the system is, a 9-2 team should not be left out and a 9-2 Army team should not be left out. I don't know how we have an Armed Forces Bowl and a Military Bowl and a First Responders Bowl and at all of these bowl games, we're going to have service members coming back and being reunited with their families, we're going to put it on TV and it's going to be a feel-good story, and you're going to leave the Army team at home.

    "How much bull is that? Somebody's got to fix that."

    I'm now in favor of expanding the playoff to eight teams and only ranking them based on computer calculations, a la the BCS, instead of human rankings. The committee has shown that it does not plan to ever deviate from the Alabama/Clemson/Ohio State invitational and that a G5 team will never, ever sniff the playoff. They snubbed UCF twice and just insulted Cincinnati by moving a two-loss OU up to #6. There is nothing a G5 team can do, even in a pandemic when other teams play 50% of their schedules, to get the committee's attention.

    The system is completely broken due to the number of slots (4), the number of power conferences (5) and undefeated G5 conference champions that will never get to make their case. Cincinnati would likely lose to Alabama by 30 but, as long as they're continued to be denied a chance to play, this argument will continue until the field is expanded to eight.

    Since you mentioned Cincy, I'll add that my favorite part of the AAC Championship Game was watching a LB named Beavers being blocked by an OT named Muskrat.

    Almost as poetic as Wisconsin being invited to the Mayo Bowl.

    I prefer 4 I guess, now that I realize teams like UCF would be in the playoffs. Lulz.
