    Last year, I was right on exactly six teams, so 50% would be an orders of magnitude improvement.

    I admittedly love bowl season even while wishing there were slightly less of them so only the truly deserving get to play in one. A big ol’ ambitious bite to take trying to sort out all these matchups! Fun to get in the bowl spirit in August and it will also be fun to see how you wind up doing once we get to December.

When the Raiders leave Oakland, there won't be a team left playing on the skinned baseball infield #EndOfAnEra Am I the only bothered by the fact Bruce Arians' Cardinal logos don't face the same way?
