Michigan and Ohio State was the Game of the Day if not the Game of the Season!

Michigan and Ohio State was the Game of the Day if not the Game of the Season!  We are sure there were folks all the way from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to the Ohio River in southern Ohio hyperventilating during this game – LOL!  Well, a person that had a great reaction was Urban Meyer who dropped to the field after the Win!  Jim Harbaugh also had a reaction – but that was in the post game press conference – he was not happy with the officiating.  We think he had a point.  A bummer that a Team had to Lose this one.  Kudos to both for a great game!

Now it is time to ask the Big Question – Does a 1 Loss Ohio State advance to the College Football Playoffs ahead of a 2 Loss Big Ten Champion – either Wisconsin or Penn State?

What are your thoughts about Ohio State advancing?  Drop us a note at FireandBrimmstone@gmail.com .

Enjoy!

College Football Playoff Board Week 12 – You have to Love those Fall Colors!

The Week 12 College Football Playoff Rankings were released on Tuesday Night and You have to Love those Fall Colors!  

The Top Four of #1 Alabama, #2 Ohio State, #3 Michigan, and #4 Clemson all remained the same, but #5 Louisville completely fell out of the picture after the Houston Cougars just at the Cardinals Up!  The beneficiaries of that were Washington and Wisconsin who moved up to the #5 and #6.  And how about the Big Ten with 3 Teams in the Top 6 Slots!  

Now, the lifespan for this board will be only one week since we have a few Monster Games on this week’s schedule!

  • Of course, The Game everyone will be watching on Saturday at Noon – #3 Michigan visits #2 Ohio State in the Horseshoe in Columbus, Ohio!  It doesn’t get any bigger than this!
  • #5 Washington plays #23 Washington State in the “Apple Cup” on Friday, November 25.
  • #1 Alabama plays #15 Auburn in the “Iron Bowl” on Saturday, November 26.

You gotta Love this time of Year!

A List of the 10 Most Athletic Presidents of All Time!

On this Presidential Election Night – let’s talk some Sports!

Here is a cool article from Chris Chase at USA Today listing The 10 most athletic presidents of all time.  Our only knock on this article is that it does not include Abraham Lincoln who in his younger years was Strong, Fit, and an Accomplished Wrestler!

Growing up we can remember Gerald Ford golfing, Jimmy Carter running, Ronald Reagan on horseback, Barack Obama playing basketball, and both Bush’s, Clinton, and Obama golfing.  Drop us a note about who you think were the most athletic Presidents at FireandBrimmstone@gmail.com .
