      Games begin today, so make sure to get your picks in (at least for those).

      Yeah, I was going through my picks last night to get them in before games started today. We'll see how it plays out!

      So far it looks like UCF can't handle the Auburn D-Line, killing their offense. Hoping they can figure out something for the upset.

      UCF gets it done! From 0-12 to 13-0!

      Maybe after YET ANOTHER New Years Bowl victory over a power 5 school, maybe the Group of 5 teams will finally start getting some goddamn respect.

      One of the few games I had a rooting interest in. Go little guy! Thanks for carrying our torch this year, UCF!

      ...but then we'd miss out on half the field being from the SEC. the greatest conference every season even when it isn't.

      The Coaches Film Room on ESPNEWS is cool but man, Gary Patterson is just such a chatterbox no one else can barely get a word in.

      ESPN is now doing their special coverage for the semifinal games too. Got the main broadcast on ESPN, Command Center (lots of camera feeds) on ESPN 2, the Data Center (lots of stats and info) on ESPN Goal Line, and then my favorite, the Coaches Film Room on ESPN News with coaches Dino Babers, Bret Bielema, Larry Fedora, Dana Holgorsen, Gary Patterson, Major Applewhite and Matt Luke breaking down the Xs and Os of the game.

      And we've got ourselves a ball game fellas. Georgia comes roaring back in the third quarter and we were tied 31-31 with 41 seconds left in the 3rd. The momentum has been 100% Georgia - 0% Oklahoma this third quarter.

      Oklahoma scored a TD to go up 31-14 with just seconds left until halftime and the game seemed to be on the verge of a blowout.

      Since then, Georgia responded with a 50+ yard field goal as time expired going into halftime to jumpstart a current 24-0 run to take a 38-31 lead. This is just insanity. Oklahoma has gone full meltdown in this second half. The fourth three and out of the second half just now for the Sooners.

      And Georgia then promptly proceeds to shit themselves.

      55 seconds is WAY too much time left on the clock. That might kill Georgia.
