I never saw Peter Pan before and the thought I came away with is that he's a cold blooded killer. Didn't know he would rack up a body count

I'm listening to the committee's reasoning, and it goes against their own logic. FSU struggles in win against lower opponents, so did TCU.

As bogus as the BCS was, it was a Godsend compared to the ranking system they have now! FSU's undefeated, then they drop? TCU over Baylor?

@SlimDownToSexy cut the sqash in half, then broil it with open side facing up. Scrape the sqash, it comes out looking like spaghetti.

The only way to beat the Giants in the playoffs, is to eliminate them in the regular season. They never lose elimination games!
