    The Future...

    Can the future be predicted? With the right info, sometimes.

    Ed predicts that with 5 games to go in the NFL season:

    One and only one of these teams will make the playoffs: Miami, Indy, Titans, Ravens, Cincy.

    These teams will not: Denver, Oakland, Buff, Jets, Jacksonville, Cleve, Arizona, San Fran, Philly, Giants, Atlanta, Tampa, Green Bay, Detroit.

    Any dissension/doubters/wagers?

    I stopped watching the NFL even before it became anti-American.
    I hate that, because now I cannot boycott it.

    If these multi-millionaire players and the left wing team owners want to use their product to slam the police, the American flag, and the National Anthem, they should. Many who don't agree with them have fought, and many have died, to protect their right to use their games to promote left wing causes.

    I don't watch and have not even kept up with the teams records using media in years. I have no idea who wins or looses.
    I don't give a rat's ass about the NFL.

    Some old fart wrote: "I don't give a rat's ass about the NFL"

    I feel the same about the CFP's. ESPECIALLY after the Figure Skating Judges had an 10-1 (now 11-1) team (OSU) ranked 10th that totally annihilated a team that they had anointed with the (now obviously) faulty/fake rank of #4 (62 to 39....OSU head coach Meyers mercifully had OSU take a knee with them on the Michigan ~5 yard line with plenty of time left to score a TD or the score would have been 69 to 39; Meyers still has the sin (re the figure skating judges) of Sportsmanship and chose NOT to kiss the asses of the "judges"....what a travesty that such a noble sport as college football has been reduced to coaches seeking favor of "judges" as they beat up and run up the score on un-ranked teams as ALL the other top 4 teams have done almost all season. OSU has a 4 - 0 record against ranked teams and will very likely not be favored by the figure skating judges to make the "playoffs"....no one in the top 4 will be able to say the same...whatever). Once again, another team will benefit from OSU knocking off a top 4 team...just like a year or two ago! Socialism and liberalism has ruined this sport!

    Ed is sad because "in his mind" his team OHS got cheated -- again!!
    He wants games to mean less so so everyone on the playground gets an award.
    "Why should 4 teams win when 50 could be crowned winners?" is the left's mantra.

    ^ More BS from someone I once thought to NOT be a BS'er. He exaggerates (i.e., bullshits) and tells falsehoods to try and bolster his flawed "logic" and to counter solid debate that he cannot do via logic and facts. i.e., just another BS'er.... I'm disappointed as I love to debate with those who are worthy opponents and use facts and logic, not falsehoods and emotion (like the leftists that he at the very least emulates re his lack of debating skills). e.g., I've never once advocated for a "50 team playoff". My clearly stated position has been a SIX team CFP. So he's exaggerating/bullshitting by a factor of more than 8 here... Could give many other examples, but I've got more important things to do...

    As to the chief Yardcrapper's "everyone gets an award" comment, I believe that MLB currently has the "most perfect" playoff system with 10 teams making the playoffs (3 division winners and 2 wildcard teams in both leagues).

    Now just imagine for a moment if they replaced this system with a COMMITTEE (of baseball "experts") that chose four "worthy" teams at the end the season that would then play for the title of World Series Champs. The fans (and players) would revolt and laugh this obviously stupid playoff charade off the stage...just as those of the NBA, NFL, and Hockey leagues would do!

    But stupid college football fans just nod like sheep (and those who don't are labeled as being "poor sports") and accept such a flawed and stupid playoff system for their sport....

    My above predictions are on track to be correct (with possible exception of Philly..looks like they might make the playoffs as a 6 seed....).

    As to other stuff, I'll get back to "Yardcrapping" after the college Figure Skating season is over...can't stand that fake "sport"! Also been busy (like 4 to 8 hours per day) with what I refer to as my "forever project" as it is long term but hugely satisfying as it uses most all of my 'life skills' (fixing stuff - like farm machinery and cars, my aeronautical-astronautical engineering education, my 40 years of aerospace analysis, test and build experience and my desire to "make new stuff".... Learning a lot as well with the potential to learn even more. Sorry; even YC stuff can't compete with that! But will get back to YC like I said after Figure Skating season is over (and until then, YC will be mostly about that falsity anyway...but for those into Figure Skating judges: enjoy! and keep kissing their asses and bowing down to their "powers": I don't do ass kissing nor granting "sports experts" powers and "wisdom" that they do not in any way shape or form possess!). Mahalo for now!

    ^ Is Clemson's reaction after the NCAA took away their PED's "edge" players?
