Sugar Bowl is less than a few hours away..... So, "Geaux Bleau!"

^^hopefully they win. B1G looked pathetic other than MSU, however, i won't exactly shed a tear if Michigan loses.

Of good NFL QBs (in no particular order)
Tom Brady #199
Peyton Manning #1 pick
Eli Manning #1 pick
Matt Ryan #3 pick
Ben Roethlisberger #11 pick
Tony Romo undrafted
Aaron Rodgers #24
Matt Stafford #1 pick
Phillip Rivers #4 pick
Cam Newton #1 pick
Sam Bradford #1 pick
I'm sure I missed some, but pretty high fraction of first round (and especially #1) picks up in there. Lots of first round draft QBs fail horribly, but if you really want to get your franchise QBs, you're more likely to find them in the first round than anywhere else. Franchises don't want to look stupid for taking a failure, but the rewards are big.

OK - first, nobody's calling me to GM their NFL franchise, so take my opinion for what it's worth...

My statement was that I'd rather trade for QB and pick a sure thing.

So if you take the non-superbowl winners off your list, it changes things... of course that's skewed by the fact that Brady won a lot of recent superbowls.

Either way - add back in Brad Johnson (in the 200s) and , KUrt Warner and Jeff Hostetler and the list looks a little more balanced. I'm not even saying it can't be a first round or second round pick, but I would rathre trade a #1 pick and not take the QB based on my risk profile.

I think Luck belongs at a team where he won't have to play for 2-4 years (ala Young or Rodgers)

Did Mussberger just say "Clemson, the only team to beat VA Tech plays tomorrow night, against another team from Virginia - West Virginia"?

Mushmouth - are you drunk?

A Meeshigan win. But, not a pretty game.

Some of the worst bowls this year... sloppy offenses, a few games with no defense at all (over 80 points in a Rose Bowl?!?!??!), etc. Lots of OT does not always mean good/close matchups...some of these were awful games.

Well, VT loses on a missed field goal. But, the guy made four other ones. Interesting twist, that.

Ironic Hemingway was just talking about all the "long nights and days" of practice... didn't they already get punished for that once under dick-rod? crackup[1].gif

I haven't watched Michigan much this year but when did they switch to the grey face mask? Did they have this all year or was this just a one game deal?

Chokies deserved that L. Fake punt? WTG beamerball. But that catch was a TD....

Goddamit ACC.

Side note: why has VT managed to be so consistently good for so long now? They aren't a particularly storied program...
