    Got some very important games, this is Rivalry Week!

    It’s Alabama, NOT MIAMI!!!, Clemson, and Oklahoma in the top 4, The undefeated Wisconsin Badgers are still paying for their weak schedule at #5. And of course, miami is ranked #12 in the power rankings but for some reason, their easy schedule thus far has them somehow at #2. They must have some super-delegates or something. Or something indeed, The University of Pittsburgh defeated them at home n Friday Afternoon! The overrated ‘Canes show their true colors.

    #9 Ohio State

    12:00 PM

    By now, I thought the Harbaugh powered Michigan team would be contesting for the national championship. Nope, not yet. Ohio State is a 12 point favorite in this storied rivalry. Things don’t look too good for M. They don’t beat the spread.

    #1 Alabama

    3:30 PM

    This is WAR in Alabama, bigger than the fight over Roy Moore and bigger than it has been in years. It’s the Iron Bowl! Auburn is a really good team and ‘Bama is, well, The Borg. This game is so good when both teams are fighting for the playoffs. ‘Bama is ONLY a 4.5 favorite at Jordan-Hare in Auburn. If I were betting with real money I would go nowhere near this game. I would love to see Auburn win this, but…They wont. ‘Bama beats the spread.

    #8 Notre Dame

    8:00 PM

    Despite what the detractors say, the student athletes at these two schools are smart, both schools have tough academic standards and deliver an excellent education to these players. I call this the Genius Bowl. The Golden Domers are 3 point favorites in this one at Stanford. ND burns me every time, so, they beat the spread on the road.

    #3 Clemson

    7:30 PM

    The Gamecocks are surprisingly good this year. This is easily an upset because Clemson has Miami next week and they could be looking past this game. Clemson is a two touchdown favorite in Atlantic City. They don’t beat the spread, but look out for an upset here.

    #13 Washington State

    8:00 PM

    It’s the Apple Bowl. Washington State is a 10 point dog on the road. They beat that spread.

      Good morning. Bama and Auburn THE game today. If the Irish did not fall to the criminals of the U the ND /Stanford
      game would be on a par. i would like to see the U go down next week and make space for Wisconsin in the top four.
      Btw CW, Pitt is da bomb! They took it to the Fightin Felons yesterday with a slap upside the head.

      Here’s another laugh. Instapundit has an open thread for Thanksgiving stories. From ‘Ursa5000’

      The family prog/libs were ok until global warming came up. The usually bombast went for ten minutes until one prog/lib saiid she just bought an electric car, since it emitted no pollution.

      I said that electricity from solar,wind and hydro was only 5% of our local utilities production, and the rest came from burning fossil fuels. And that her new car simply burned natural gas remotely.

      She very triumphantly said the car dealer told her that the plug-in charger for her new car, sent “coded electronic signals” to the local utilities, so as to use only solar and wind generated electricity in charging her car.

      I replied “Wow, that is really impressive, could you pass the sweet potatoes?”

      Here in South Central Kansas we’re getting about 1/3 of our power from wind. That’s great, and I don’t expect the wind to stop blowing any time soon, but we’re still a long way from replacing coal or nuclear power.

      If there was a way to generate power from the sunlight that falls on our streets…

      @ right_wing2:

      Once again over Thanksgiving I was reminded that I worshipped a “different” Bible as a Catholic than “Christians” at the aunt and uncle in-law’s.

      I didn’t say much.

      My in-laws are both Lutheran ministers, and so things god oddly specific.

      I’m not going to rebuke Luther’s decision to take out Maccabees 1 and 2 (although Maccabees 1 is simply a historical account, I suspect his decision was based on the interpretations in 2 regarding sainthood, martyrdom, and purgatory, and that he just cut them both and threw them to the Apocryphy).

      I have attended many of their Methodist services and worshipped dutifully.

      I simply do not believe that I need “re-baptized.”

      ‘DISGUSTING BEHAVIOUR’ Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson accused of ‘motorboating’ singer by ‘burying head in her boobs’ as Joss Stone looked on

      LOL!! They described motorboating!

      “Sir Richard Branson is accused of ‘motorboating’ backing singer, Antonia Jenae, by sticking his face in her boobs and shaking it vigorously while blowing raspberries”

      (I’m laughing at the description, not the inappropriate behavior)

      Bokhari: Google, Facebook, Twitter And YouTube Are The Real Threat To ‘Net Neutrality’

      Net Neutrality reform has begun, which means that half of the internet is rejoicing that the web will no longer be tyrannized by big government, while the other half despairs that it will now be tyrannized by big corporations. Who’s right?

      First, a note to the latter: the web is already subject to the tyranny of big corporations. Their names are Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Apple, and Amazon. Together, they have monopolized the public square of the web and destroyed the idea that anyone, no matter how controversial their opinions, can have a voice and build a following.

      If you write an app, Apple and Google will be your gatekeepers. If you write a book, Amazon will be your gatekeeper. If you make a video, YouTube will be your gatekeeper. If you wish to share your content, Twitter and Facebook will be your gatekeepers. Their speech codes, already more akin to Angela Merkel’s Germany than First Amendment America, grow more stringent by the day.

      Furthermore, there is no oversight, no checks and balances, and only threadbare legal recourse to stop these companies from abusing their colossal concentrations of power. Nothing can stop Twitter from suddenly silencing a popular voice, and it has already done so on countless occasions. Nothing can stop Google and Apple from denying an app creator access to the only relevant marketplaces for their products, and they have already done so.

      If left-wing Net Neutrality activists are serious about their demands for “content neutrality” and a “free and open web”, then where have they been for the past few years, as control of the web slowly fell into the hands of a few unaccountable companies?

      German Christmas markets: City protects pedestrians with gift-wrapped car barricades

      Cities across Germany are boosting security for Christmas market season, following the deadly truck rampage in Berlin last year. The city of Bochum put out massive car barricades – and then giftwrapped them.

      Bochum authorities placed a string of 1.2 ton pellet bags in the downtown area to avert potential terror attacks ahead of the seasonal opening of the local Christmas market.

      On Thursday morning, however, the bags took on a holiday look, with the city’s official marketing service turning them into novelty Christmas presents.

      “For us it was very important to fit in those ugly barriers into the beautiful overall atmosphere,” said the head of Bochum Marketing Mario Schiefelbein.

      The move surprised both local residents and the police, as the service reportedly giftwrapped up all of the 20 bags overnight without forewarning.

      Other cities across Germany are also boosting their security ahead of the events, fearing a repeat of last year’s on a Christmas market in Berlin, when a Tunisian man killed 12 people by driving a stolen truck into the crowd.

      Bochum is not the only city to put a bow on new security measures. In the Bavarian city of Augsburg, for example, authorities will use decorated trucks belonging to Christmas market stall owners as car barriers. Munich officials plan to block the streets with planters containing season-appropriate evergreen plants.

      So if it’s dark or overcast and still, does her car wait to be charged until the sun comes up or the wind starts blowing?

      Well, OK, the Badgers cleaned the clocks of Minnesota, 31 – 0, resulting in the first undefeated Wisconsin season since 1912. I’m apprehensive about Ohio State in the Big 10 Championship, as I think the Buckeyes will be desperate for a win, and the Badgers will be over-confident. I’ll take the victory this week.

      @ Canoe Convoy:

      I watched with dread as OSU was down 14, but from experience I also knew we are a 2nd half team. The Michigan QB was getting hammered all night and in the 4th quarter it paid dividends. He missed a guy wide open down field as he dropped his eyes to the oncoming defensive linemen. The mistakes lost them the game and a OSU freshman QB who proved he could cut the mustard.

      If they can beat Wisconsin they might get a toe in the door for the NC, but I’m not sure if I would want to get embarrassed like last time as consitency (eg. Iowa) is an issue.

      “At one point a man in a red van attempted to cut into the motorcade,” the report said.

      “Local law enforcement pulled over the vehicle, where the driver made obscene gestures and screamed several expletives,” according to the report.

      Good morning. Want to coach a Division 1 team? The Notre Dame alums want Brian Kelly our after two humiliations
      in three weeks. The argument that it is an improvement over last year does not wash, Kelly was coach then.
      A Notre Dame team should never be so unprepared and humiliated.

      I am convinced that is true after watching them dismantle the Buckeyes, but the losses Count just as much as the wins.
