    That wasnt your original point and it Georgia losing doesn't prove the playoff should be 8 anyway. Otherwise I completely agree!

    Felt this was the appropriate place for this sad news.

    The bowl season has proven that the playoff should shrink back to two teams. If Bama blows out Clemson, maybe we can just go back to the old bowl system and leave it in the hands of the voters.

    Very sad but wonderful story.

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    I was bemoaning the fact that this evening's commute home was going to be hellacious given the CFP Championship Game being played alongside my route. But then I just got a call from a former colleague offering me a seat on the 50 yard line in the VIP section. I was ambivalent until he mentioned the free eats in the VIP lounge so, okay I guess. Not sure if I'm on the 'Bama or Clemson side. I came to the office unprepared and all I've got in the car is an orange windbreaker, so go Tigers! Drive home will now be even worse, but still.

    I don't know that the drive will be that bad. They're basically giving away tickets to this thing. It's not sold out and there are still thousands available.

    Yeah, and the weather, though not terrible, isn't great. I know of a guy who was crowing a couple of months ago about scoring VIP seats for $1,750 each, and as of two days ago one could get them for around $300. I got mine for free!

    I would take free VIP seats any day. It's such a bummer that the stadium is so far away from everything. I don't know what they were thinking relocating there. It was such a PITA when the super bowl was there a couple years ago. Especially when all the events were in SF.

    I'm not sure why the NCAA thought they would be a good host. Aside from the location it's a lukewarm college football area and that's being kind.

    Agreed on all counts, except that there are several hundred rabid SJSU fans in the area, plus several thousand typically indifferent Stanford fans a bit up the road, so there's that.

    You should come pay a visit (Sec. 138, row 13). I'll alert the ushers and security that my gamekeeper or houndsman may need to deliver an important message.

    Nick Saban gets it! He makes the safe call to go for it on fourth down.

    Thought of you as I looked on. I don’t think Levi’s Stadium has ever been this loud. Maybe when Beyoncé was here... great atmosphere.

    What percent of the seats are empty would you guys say? Looks like a great crowd — and what a great game so far — but like there are some empty seats.

    This would have been a great one to attend in person.

    Surprisingly few empties, maybe a couple thousand? This is a blast, especially with nonstop eats.

    My son served his mission in Alabama. When he was out there, he said that the Alabama fans were so obnoxious that he kind of had to root for Auburn when they played each other.

    Since he got home - and there are fewer Bama fans in Utah - he's evolved into a full-blown Alabama fan. Doesn't help that his wife also served in Alabama - so they support each other in their fandom. The only good part of this is that he isn't way into sports - so he isn't obnoxious in his fandom.

    Anyway - with that disclosure in mind - my hate for Bama has softened. But I'm also OK with them losing.

    Spicoli is doing pretty good as QB.

    (Has that joke been done before? I feel like it should have been done before)

    These Clemson receivers are pretty incredible. Ross and his crazy catches and then Higgins on the TD. Not to mention that Lawrence and Ross are freshmen.

    Clemson's defense is just incredible. That goal line stop was abusive.

    I think we all owe Notre Dame a [mental] apology.
