    Up on the Blue Ridge Mountain, there I'll take my stand
    Rifle on my shoulder, 6 shooter in my hand
    Lord, Lord, I've been all around this world

     

    Lulu, my Lulu, come and open the door
    Lulu, my Lulu, come and open the door
    Before I have to walk on in with my old 44
    Lord, Lord, I've been all around this world

    But now I’ve come back again
    Why do I find it hard to write the next line?
    I want the truth to be said

     

    I, I-I-I, I
    I know this much is true
    I, I-I-I, I

  3. Well, she used to run around, with every man in town

    She spent all my money, playing her high class game

    She put me out, it was a pity how I cried

    Tables turn and now it's her turn to cry

    Because I used to love her, but it's all over now

    Surprisingly, I was more mad about this game than I was the Chiefs playoff game last year. Days like today where I’d love to be done, but who am I kidding? I’d be right back next week.

    Yeah, Bills Fans never know which loss will really set them off, or perhaps even why. 

     

    I got very, very angry after the game where Stevie Johnson dropped the wide open, game winning TD pass, even before he blamed God. I remember being even more angry at that than I was at the Chiefs debacle. Truthfully, as a Bills Fan I am damaged to the point where I absolutely did not expect them to hold the lead, and I suspect I am far from being alone.

     

    Time flies. I am now in my sixties and can no longer afford to get torn apart by what the Bills do. The team plays a zone defense and has 2 first round corners. Our safeties are great but not getting healthier or younger. Will they draft a first round safety? Probably, and they might even trade up to do so. Should I allow myself to get angry to the point that my blood pressure goes up? 

     

    Josh makes the team much more fun to watch but he needs more receivers and more blockers. Will they address these dire needs in a meaningful way? They might, and they very well might not but I can't control what they do, but; I would rather not get angry to the point that I need open heart surgery. :) 

     

    In summary, I understand the pain that the OP feels. My advice is to look at the bright side because these actually ARE some wonderful things about being a Bills fan:

    1) You and your children will become more loyal and used to handling adversity. Sounds trite? Yes but I believe this.

    2) Bills Fans are really a fun group of nice, very funny people. I made some wonderful friends at the Stadium.

    3) On this board, there are several true football experts. I feel lucky to converse with them.

    4) That unknown exists.....how will I react when/if they DO win the Super Bowl? In my case, I am really not sure. 20 years ago I would have dived into a deep snow drift, drunk lol. Now, I really don't know what I would do with all of that joy.

     

    The above is just to name a few. Good luck to the OP. I for one would welcome you back. Just do all you can to relax and downshift a gear or 2. It isn't healthy to get THAT upset.

     

    GO BILLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The way Brent Mussberger fawned all over her during a bowl game broadcast (wasn't it?) was an all time-classic.


    He was like "Oh my!  Look at that woman!  What a gorgeous woman!  And his mom too!"

    She stuck up for Mussberger and said that she was not the least bit offended. 

     

    I'm not making a case for right or wrong. I don't really care, but; I clearly remember her stating publicly that it didn't bother her at all.

    I know... just still pissed ESPN had him on during the 2011 Bedlam game when OSU was up 44-3 over OU so he could plead his case why Alabama should be allowed to 'rematch' against LSU, despite not winning their division. 

    Yes, how dare they put Alabama against LSU!!!!!!!!!

    I never argued with this point. The SEC is the best conference and has been ever since the mid-90's when Florida won. Not even close really.  Big XII, Pac12 and Big 10 are all tied with the number of titles since that Florida win (ACC with 4 wins is 2nd?). The SEC has won the vast majority of those titles. 

     

    As for TCU... the Big XII isn't a joke-conference. I already pointed out the conference is 2-1 v Big 10 and SEC teams this year (the lone close loss was your Bama/UT game). The Conference as a whole this year is 5-3 vs Power 5 conferences in the non-conference slate. WVU lost to Pittsburgh on the road by 7 in the opener, Tech lost on the road to NC State by 13, and then Texas v Alabama. Tech and WVU are - AWFUL - teams this season.  

     

    I could argue the best conferences from top to bottom this year are, in order:

     

    1. SEC (71% will likely go to a bowl, 1 or 2 CFP)

    2. Big 10 (71% will likely go bowling, 1 or 2 CFP)

    3. Big XII (80% will likely go bowling, 1 CFP)

    4. ACC (71% will likely go bowling, 1 possible CFP)

    5. PAC12 (50% will likely go to a bowl, 1 possible CFP)

     

    My entire point is this: We need an expanded playoff to PROVE all of these arguments we have. SEC has looked solid as always, but do we know TCU can't hang or even beat a team like Tennessee? Maybe even UGA somehow (TCU has a solid defense)? Could USC beat Michigan? We would never know unless we actually expand the whole thing. Not to 68 teams like the NCAA Basketball Tournament, but something better what we have now... which is better than the BCS... which was better than the AP deciding it... and so on. Remember when Boise beat OU in the Fiesta Bowl? We never know unless they play. 

     

    Thankfully, we are going to get the expanded playoff so this argument is moot. 

     

     

     

    Your post makes sense and I agree with your conference rankings.

     

    You and I disagree about the importance of bowl games. For instance, I hope that Saban removes most if not all starters from any bowl we might play in and puts the freshmen in there. I even WANT Bryce Young to sit out the game, whereas I expect a QB battle next yesr between Jalen Milroe and Ty Simpson and I want to see them get playing time.

     

    Mac Jones got his first serious playing time in a bowl against Michigan and that turned out pretty well, no?

    I Still want to hear how a 13-0 TCU team shouldn't be allowed in the CFP Playoff? Are you going to ignore those of us that have asked you?

    My point is really simple. For example, Clemson: 

     

    There is no doubt that Clemson  has a solid, talented team year after year. They are (as you well know) 2-1 against Alabama in title games. They ran into one of those practically unbeatable teams (LSU) and lost to them. That LSU team was in a class with the 2021 Crimson Tide championship team but I digress.

     

    Almost every team that Clemson plays is horrible, or at the very least so-so. I heard Dabo say on Sirius that he removes his starters very early to give the subs playing time. My point? His teams arrive to the playoffs comparatively fresh and rested as compared to Alabama, Ohio State, and other teams. 

     

    Should an undefeated TCU be allowed to go to the playoffs and promptly get crushed? Certainly. Should USC get in there if a few teams lose and they win out against garbage? Well, how would one justify keeping them out, even if they make last season's Cincinatti team look like the 2021 Crimson Tide?

     

    You say that teams are leaving the Big 12 to join the SEC because of the money and that is true, but it doesn't tell the whole story. The money is in the SEC because so are the talented teams. 

     

    As an aside, NIL is really hurting, and will continue to hurt the top teams. Look at Texas A&M.....they had the highest ranked recruit class in the history of college football, and they are losing game after game. Football and boxing are primarily for poor folks. If you were 18-21 years old, with $500K in your pocket and living on a campus chock full of hot women, would you want to get hit by Will Anderson or Brian Branch? Would you want to be in bed sleeping in your room at 10 PM, after studying the playbook for 3 hours? I don't think so. I know that I would have been out there hanging out with the hot young girls night after night.

     

    Obviously the players deserve some money but there needs to be a system in place. The topic of NIL deserves it's own thread imo.

  14. First of all, refrain from calling me names. 

     

    Next, your team sucks. Alabama could have lost 5 games this season with their worst team in many years. Instead, they won 3 of those games, including a road win over your Mississppi team :) .  Otoh, a weak OSU lost 48-0 to a so-so team. Not good.  🤣

    Think what you will about the Big 12.  Tell yourself how good they are, despite the parade of teams leaving it. 

    Dream away.

    He wants ONLY SEC or BiG teams in the Playoffs. Even if Clemson goes undefeated, mind you they beat Alabama TWICE for the National Championship the past few years, they shouldn't be allowed to go either. But if Tennessee or Florida goes 12-0, they get to play in it. Not a 13-0 TCU 🙄

     

    Dude is the DEFINITION of a homer. 

    Who is the homer? I remember you telling me about this really good, legit team. 😁🤣😁🤣

    But what if Bama blows out that tough Austin Peay team they scheduled?

    Austin Peay would probably be a competetive team in the soft Big 12.

     

    Obviously Alabama is not playing all that well this season. They have no business making the playoffs but it really is a sad day when TCU can make the playoffs coming from a second rate conference. The same applies to Clemson, and every team in the Pac 12.

    I don't want them to waste any, but McDermott isn't getting fired most likely. Only Terry can answer that. It's not just McDermott as Beane also needs to share the blame. We are one of the worst teams in short yardage situations. We rely on Josh to do too much because we don't have a great run game. Beane has been the GM for 5 years now and the OL is still a problem.

    I think that McDermott has far more power with this team than Beane. His drafts are a tell tale sign. He values defensive backs above all else and proved this when he traded Mahomes to the Chiefs before Beane was even there.

     

    This team needs blockers and wide receivers. Sadly, McDermott shows no signs of caring that much about them.
