    IMO, OU's play during the last minute of regulation was questionable. Oklahoma had the ball 3rd and 2 @40 yard line with @30 seconds or so and at least 1 time out. Not sure why OU opted for a long pass, which was incomplete forcing a punt. Run the ball and get the first down (Sooners had over 200 yards rushing, 5+ yards/carry average) and then play for a potential game winning FG (even if Georgia had blocked one earlier in the game).

    Since Florida and Nebraska didn't play in a bowl game this season, enjoy this clip from the 1996 Fiesta Bowl between #1 Nebraska and #2 Florida:

    That was an awesome way to start 2018! The Tournament of Roses Parade is pretty good, too. A lot of hard work goes into making those floats, many of which are really well done. Hopefully the hotel rates weren't too bad, lol.

    Sounds like one great day with the nephews. I spent some time in Pasadena last time through that way....actually I got lost and ended up there off the freeway. :)

    It was actually a good thing, I loved driving around there, and stopped and had lunch...beautiful city!

    Yeah J B it was one of many things that was cool... before the game started the big stealth bomber flew over we were sitting opposite of the way it flew in so we got a good long look...that plane is big.. I am glad it is on our side ;)
