I do want to respond to something JediMAC said over at Galactic Hunter, in the "GEAUX TIGERS!!!!" thread, if that makes any sense.

After OU's shalacking at the hands of Kansas State last night, at home no less

For the record, while OU was the "home" team in last Saturday's game, don't be fooled--they weren't playing in the cozy confines of Owen Field in Norman, Oklahoma.

No sir, they were playing up in Kansas City, at Arrowhead Stadium, where the NFL's Chiefs play.

Now, I have no idea what percentage of fans were rooting for OU, and what percentage were rooting for Kansas State, but I'd imagine a good majority of them were rooting for the Wildcats.

Doesn't change much, really--K-State still played lights out, and kicked OU's ass--but the Sooners didn't lose here at home.  It was a road game without being a "road game".

Okay.  If it's all about the music, then that's great.

Tell you what:  Picture the ugliest woman you can think of, and then imagine her singing any given Shania Twain song--and sounding exactly the same as Shania.  (Personally, I'm picturing Sandra Bernhard here, because she's the ugliest woman I've seen recently).

Now, do you really think that she would be anywhere near as successful as Shania Twain?

She plays the same setlist every night????  Wow, she is suddenly less Hot :-\

You mean. . .  She's successful because of her looks, and not because of her artistic and musical creativity?   :o  ???

And if that's the case, well, at least we have musical genius Britney Spears to rely on.

To me, NASCAR sucks, but I'll bump this in hopes that the college football thread doesn't get derailed any more than it already is. . .

I don't follow NCAA football that much (aside from NC State, and QB Phillip Rivers is getting the Heisman shaft), but I think it's ludicrous that a team that loses their conference championship game, in blowout fashion, and holds the same record as the other Top 2 teams, still gets to play for the National Championship while the No. 1 team in the 2 other polls that actually matter, plays 2nd fiddle.

"Second fiddle"?  No, not really.  If USC wins in the Rose Bowl, they'll be guaranteed a share of the championship with whoever wins the OU/LSU game, so it's not like they're totally ass-out here.

There are definite problems with the current system, but there's not a whole lot to do when there's three one-loss teams--someone's going to get left out.  (And they don't all have identical records--OU and LSU are both 12-1, and USC is 11-1).

When that happens, what other option do you have than to look at the quality wins and losses that each of the teams had?
Looking at those, OU deserves to be in the title game just as much as anybody.

OU:  Quality wins over Texas (5) and Oklahoma St. (22)
        Lost to Kansas State (10)

LSU:  Quality wins over Georgia (11) (twice) and Mississippi (18)
         Lost to Florida (17)

USC:  Quality win over Washington State (14)
          Lost to California (unranked)

Now, I'm for a playoff system, too, but that doesn't matter.  Doesn't matter that OU lost on the last day of the year, just like it doesn't matter that USC lost two and a half months ago.  What does matter is that both OU and LSU have better wins than USC, and better losses, too.

My new favorite team, by the way, is Michigan.  

GO BLUE!!!   8)

I assume your sig accordingly played into one of your answers, correct?   ;)

Oh, most definitely.

I was pretty liberal when it came to answering the questions, so I had a relatively high score, comparatively-speaking (fourth highest out of the people who've posted to this thread so far).  So when the "shave your legs?" question came up, I answered yes, even though the only time a razor blade has ever touched my legs was about ten years ago, when I shaved a little patch off, just to see if hair really did come in thicker if you shaved it off (it didn't).  Same thing with the fingernail polish question--I've never worn fingernail polish regularly, but I've put it on a time or two in the past as a goof or whatever, so I answered yes.

So I received my Alien Quadrilogy today from DDD, and this thing is over five feet long when fully unfolded.  Pretty amazing.

I've only watched a little bit of the bonus ninth disc so far, but it seems awfully in-depth, and I'm looking forward to delving into the rest of the set.  Probably going to watch Resurrection first, since it's the only one I haven't seen yet, even though a lot of people don't seem to like it.  

45 hours of stuff. . .  See you guys on Wednesday.

I appreciate your honest recognition of my raging manliness

It's a gift.

Don't you remember how Scott and I were going to do that whole mud wrestling thing in our thongs just for you?   :-*

Now you know why you were exempt from The MetroSexual Quiz.  

...and thanks Matt.  Got the damned Dirty Dancing flick stuck in my noggin now.  Just great.   >:(  (speaking of which, Collectors Edition out tomorrow!   :P)

Nobody puts Baby in a corner.

(Sylvia is coming out on DVD on February 10th!  Rejoice!)
