I think you're putting words in my mouth.  Or on my fingers on the keyboard, or something.
As I have discussed several times on this very message board, I don't like the games vs. patsies.  Or pastries.  Or creampuffs.  I wish that the P5 conferences would adopt rules forbidding games with FCS schools and requiring at least one OOC game vs. a P5 program.
But I don't like the playoff.  I thought that the BCS was a slight improvement over what we had before, but I did not want the expansion to four teams and I certainly don't want the inevitable expansion to eight.
I am, but I think a world without creampuffs actually moves things more toward an NFL-style of sport. 

Depth and diversity make the sport what it is, and there's value in transferring wins from the second class to the first. Without that, P5 gets closer to .500 overall. A world without patsies mean Jeff Brohm has likely made one bowl and Illinois last year wasn't a story at all. 

Cut into your patsies and records get worse. That's fine and good in a world where we can separate record/schedule in a clear-eyed way, but we can't. All your borderline bowl teams that are fun stories end up just sub-.500 squads. I don't necessarily mind fewer patsies, but they decidedly push us toward a small-tent NFL-style situation and more multi-loss national champs.

I thought that as well.  I presume this one is more reliable, maybe?

Makes me shudder just thinking about it.
I saw another place that had a sign out saying "COVID TEST IN REAR".  I didn't try that one.
Yeah, the one I took wasn’t bad at all.  Just swab the inside of your nostrils and you are done.  I thought they had figured out they don’t need to shove a stick halfway to your brain. Idk. Must be a reason some places are still using the more invasive test I guess.

I like French women, one of them anyway.  She is hobbled with an enormous black sling device on her left arm.

Sage is sleeping now, napping anyway.  My turn is Monday.

Failure in one chart.



Why did we loosen up when our infection rate was still so high?  Because we didn't want to be pussies and wear masks.

So in my personal life I am learning just how challenging this Covid is for the medical community.

I took my better half back to the emergency room today because her diagnosis of pneumonia is not improving. Two consecutive weeks of fever.

They kept her there because they were very concerned about that and her oxygen levels being so low.

They gave her her fifth Covid test and again it was negative. However they shipped her over to the other hospital in town which is for Covid patients because they are saying all of her symptoms and enzymes and other chemical levels are presenting themselves as Covid.  

I am inclined to think they know what they are doing because this is part of the Cleveland clinic Hospital network
