|GET ICEMAN OUT OF MY STADIUM|
Anyway, nothing said up there is breaking news at all. What is great is that the pressure is getting ratcheted up more and more by the week and we will continue to have some gigantic high stakes games through the rest of the month to go along with our ELITE helpings of mid-week MACtion. I wanted to take today to sort of call my shot in regards to the Final Four. Wait--does this have a name yet? They shouldn't call it the Final Four as I just did. Someone come up with a name for this post haste.
WHO I WANT
I'm not going to seed teams because seeding is meaningless once you get in. DEAL WITH IT.
*Florida State - You should call the Noles "Molly Hatchet" with the way that they have been flirting with disaster all season (ELITE classic rock reference). At this point, I don't want the champs to get upset by some shitty ACC school or, even worse, Florida. Let's have them get rocked on the grandest stage possible.
*Notre Dame - I want them to get another shot at FSU again. Yeah, I said it. That was a fun as fuck game to watch and I would have no problem seeing it again.
*Alabama - I don't see Auburn running the table against that meat grinder and I like a veteran asshole presence like SabeCakes in the title mix.
*Mississippi State - I believe that the four best teams in America play in the SEC West. You will not convince me otherwise.
WHO I'LL GET
*Alabama - They still have Mississippi State and Auburn left as long as a potential SEC title game so there are plenty of spots to fail, but I trust the Cakes more than anyone else (does not apply to BradyCakes)
*TCU - We will get our Big 12 representative in the playoff on Saturday when K-State goes to Ft. Worth to play the Frogs. Whoever wins is in. Period. Granted, either could get upset before their season ends, but I'm in the HOT TAEK business and I believe that the Big 12 winner is a lock.
*Oregon - Meh, whatever. That Hellfish guy looks like a real nerd. The Ducks will win the Pac-12 but lose in the semis because they never beat anyone with equal talent it seems.
I think that Notre Dame probably loses this week out in the desert and ends that dream. I'm sure that their level-headed fans will take kindly to that. I don't think that the Big Ten deserves to get in (even Sparty...sorry not sorry) and there is no argument that can be made to change my mind. I also don't think that we are going to get 2 SEC teams. Hell, there is a decent chance that 5 teams in the SEC West could all be 6-2 in the conference. Man, that would be a real hoot. I'm sure that Phyllis from Mulga would have some ELITE tie-breaking takes for Finebaum if that were to happen! My tie-breaker for the SEC is simple: Les Miles wins.
Either way, we are getting down to the fun part of the season. Our first elimination games come this Saturday in the Big Ten and Big 12. Give me your WANT and GET teams in the comments. Show your work because you will be held accountable. Anyone who picks a certain team to get in will be branded with a brown VT on their chest. The brown is Beamer feces by the way.
