    Down goes Clemson, Washington State and Washington. Since they all lost to unranks, they should all fall a good deal. Leaves the door wide open for Ohio State to beat Penn next week and suddenly be what.. #2 or #3 at worst after. And Oklahoma is suddenly back in play and I'm sure they are hoping TCU stays unbeaten until they play.

    It's been a few years since there were this many undefeated teams after 6 weeks in the season. Even though we just lost 3 after week 5 (Clemson, Washington and Washington State). That means the college football playoffs is pretty wide open. Unless the NCAA world is upended, we will see Alabama stay unbeaten. Though makes me wonder of all these other teams.

    Which others do you think have the best chance to finish with a -0 in the loss column? Here's my thinking:

    Candidates:

    1. Alabama (just Auburn left as far as top 25 teams currently. No competition there.)

    2. Penn State (they have Michigan, MSU and OSU left on the schedule. I think they lose one of those.)

    3. Georgia (Auburn is the only current top 25 on their schedule, and they are much more complete than Auburn)

    4. TCU (Oklahoma and Texas Tech, plus Texas and KU... just don't see it)

    5. Wisconsin (Just Michigan as far as top 25 ranks left for them. They should easily go undefeated)

    With that, we would see Alabama, Georgia and Wisconsin in the top 3-4 slots. The -1 team would probably be Clemson. And there you go. That'd be my bet for the CFP.

    I thought it hadn't been released yet. I thought they were waiting to release it with the 8 and X.
    It just came out to buy on the site, just not in the stores just yet.

    So what do you think the specific motive is here? I can't believe our President did this specifically to stir up drama and be narcissistic. Is this like what we've seen before when stuff like this is purposely done to pull attention away from an executive order or bill being passed? Is there something shady that Trump is trying to do under the radar? Or maybe it is as simple as narcissism.

    Not sure. There are so many issues going down at the same time, would be hard to say he is doing this to get attention away from X thing, especially if his admin is doing something behind the scenes or something that is not getting news coverage like it should.

    I think in general he would rather have the media focus on this controversy than his actual policies and diplomacy (or lackthereof).

    Do you think I am correct in my assumption that this was completely set up? I cannot believe that Trump and Pence didn't think this was going to happen.

    Oh yeah, for sure. He wouldn't have told Pence that otherwise. It makes sense. He wanted this drama. So yeah I definitely do think it was choreographed.

    Unfortunately this is Trump's MO all the way. Redirect attention to tabloid nonsense and try and get his hardcore fans at rallies to cheer for him. He's a celebrity provocateur first and foremost and I don't think he is nearly as interested in being presidential.

    Your list is good. You should tweet him that post. :)

    Leave it to our President to unify the league.

    Trump said this at a rally, just before Week 3's games:

    "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out. He's fired. He's fired!"

    Of course, he was mostly directing that comment to Colin Kaepernick, who he was already called out publicly a few times. But now his criticism is also directed toward just about anyone in the league that decides to kneel or lock arms with other teammates, during the national anthem.

    Well, only a small fraction of NFL players (6) were protesting the national anthem before Week 3, but after that comment it seems the entire league joined in (over 200 during week 3's games). Even coaches, commentators, NFL execs and even Roger Goodell condemned the President. Here's a report on it:

    I know the protests themselves are divisive to many across the country for one reason or another. But I was surprised and happy to see so many NFL players and higher up staff stand up against Donald Trump's comments. It's certainly odd to see a US President spend his time focusing criticism toward NFL players peacefully protesting. I'm glad the league immediately understood that a unified front response was the best course of action, and decided to display that front ALL OVER national television throughout the entire Sunday onslaught of NFL games.

    Yeah, never thought about that before. It really is a rare thing to get to start from scratch completely when a new franchise begins by picking the entire organization.

    Imagine it would be hard convincing really good players to come to something brand new, in a city that is known for being a desert. Come play hockey and live in Sin City? Could be a tough sell.

    Dallas Stars:

    In my opinion, the Stars have everything it takes to win the Stanley Cup. They have finally fixed the biggest issue with their team, the goalie. The fix was adding Ben Bishop from the LA Kings during the off-season. Bishop is one of favorite goalies in the entire league. Not only is he a monster at defending the net, but he'll also free up the other players from picking up a lacking goalie's slack. I think the Stars will have a very successful playoff run and make it to the Cup this year.

    Completely agree here. Will be nice not having to see the Stars having to score 3-4 a night just to fend off bad goalie play.
