    Jay Ajayi has to watch his ball security, but he's a special talent and an everydown bell-cow. 1st-2nd round grade, with an NFL comparison of Le'veon Bell. He's the truth. Jacksonville, Atlanta, San Diego would be excellent fits.

    I wouldn't have previously thought that Grant Hendrick belongs, but he's had a perfect game so far. His mechanics and pocket presence looks good as well.

    WHAAAAAAAAAAAA?

    Doug Marrone isn't coming back for the Bills. Most successful season in years, and now the Head Coach is gone. The better quarterback on their roster just slinked into retirement, and now this?! Cripes.

    The Fiesta Bowl didn't disappoint. The Orange Bowl is pretty darn good as well.

    Been a pretty good set of bowl games. TCU were brilliant. Can't wait for the Seminoles against the ducks.

    Brady's contract restructure has got a lot of people thinking that he could be coming to an end with the patriots sooner rather than later. Also hear rumblings of the pats wanting to take Rex Ryan on as a consultant.

    Really hoping the pats get ravens.

    Don't watch much NCAA but as far as I can see both of these QBs do things which are going to terrify NFL teams and other things which will really excite them.

    Unlike a lot of college QB's Jameis and Mariota keeps his eyes on downfield. I think Mariota will be taken #1 overall, and I think he's really, really good, Jameis is the better prospect. In terms of 'who's the better qb', I'd take Jameis every time, it's just his off-field issues. I'm impressed by Jameis' leadership.

    JAMEIS!!! NOOO...FSU had a terrible 3rd quarter. 4 turnovers! He tried to keep the play alive and got punished for it.

    He's put the ball in good places...and his receivers have had a case of fumble-itis. Ugh.

    Well...that was a very pulseating Sugar Bowl. tOSU were worthy winners.

    Bama needed to run the football...Derrick Henry is in the mold of Lacy and Bell. 6ft3, 240lbs, and a former 100m sprinter..I was very impressed with him, although if Bama rushed the ball more it could have been a different outcome. Rush when you are ahead is a pretty effective way to win. Eat the clock, rest up your defense. And also in terms of psychology, it's very important. If you have a defense who can't stop the run...can you imagine how demoralized if they continue to rush the ball? Oh wait...that's pretty much was tOSU did...tOSU sledgehammered 'Bama's rush defense, and burned them through the air. It's clear that tOSU has three potential Heisman winners at QB though.

    The Bama defense buckled down late in the third quarter to give them half a chance...only for the offense to short circuit. Forcing a punt deep in the endzone with a bounce to the 23...to throw a pick on the next play was unforgivable. They had 2nd and short thanks to a good gain on by Yeldon...and then two sacks later were punting...Blake Sims has been good this year but there was some questionable decision making . It will be a rebuilding year for Bama, although their fans will expect them to be there or thereabouts.

    If you were a special teams aficionado, this was the game to watch. Some big hits on punt and kickoff returns, and a punting masterclass by freshman JK Scott. Scary to think that he's only going to get better :O :O The onside kick was perfectly executed, and was so close to being recovered.

    Finally, what was up with this final drive? The game is on the line fellas!!!....smh...


    (also 6 defenders around the football beats two wideouts. Everytime.)

    All-Pro team is out.

    Watt and Gronk the only unanimous votes. Antonio Brown had 49, DeMarco Murray 48 and Justin Houston got 47.

    If anyone needs a good laugh...listen to Finebaum. His radio show is basically syndicated throughout the south, and he emphasizes how good the SEC is. FSU and Bama fans are ringing in, thinking the world has ended or something.
    The gist is just OH MY GOD THE BELOVED SEC!!!! WHAT HAPPENED? SEC SEC SEC!

    Good Ol' 'Murica. She needs a mental evaluation after that. I just watched the final drive and Jesus it was slow! Did Sims forget he could spike the ball?
