This one is for the peanut gallery: NCAA Champ. Game Thread

I didn’t plan on writing a whole post about the NCAA national championship game. But I figured some of you guys are gonna want a place to comment on it. So I will just write this as a non-featured article.

Honestly, I don’t really follow much college football outside my Owls and they stunk this year. All I’ve heard is we should try and grab one of the RB’s from Georgia and that Bo Scarbrough kid is always an A+ grade when you grab him in a First-Pick mock draft in the 6th round. I’m just gonna guess Bama’s defense is great like it’s been for the last 10 years and they don’t have an NFL caliber QB like it’s been for the last 10 years, am I right?

By the way. We are looking for someone who follows college football and would like to write up some stories for NFL draft previews. We had a few guys in the past but they’ve not worked out for various reasons. So if anyone here is interested email us at thehogsty@gmail.com, you wouldn’t have to come on the podcasts, unless you wanted too.

Other than that, feel free to use this space for your NCAA Championship jibber jabber. I’m glad everyone is enjoying the new comments section. Please try and keep the X-rated pics off here, and try not to kill each other.  Now here’s a pic of Bruce Allen looking dumb for you to be amused with.

    Did anyone see us taking aa WR in the 1st of 2016 draft?

    • mike5790

      Yes?
      In fact, when people mocked me for my mocking fake mockery fakeness in doing it, it was pretty easy to justify given the contracts the WRs were on; though yeah, I didn’t fully like the idea, I could understand the madness of it. WRs, though, are not RBs, they need 1-3 years.

    Round 7 Pick 13: Nyles Morgan, ILB, Notre Dame (C+)

  • noonefromtampa

    Kirk here pick DL
    Kirk not here pick DL

    we’ve got to have a better defense, that will add about 3 wins
    the differential between Colt and Kirk is about 2 games
    Colt’s big question is can he stay healthy for 16 games

    • btg

      Agreed
      Also and the Glen running roughshod over us was puke inducing

    • alex35332

      See, I think the difference between Colt and Kirk is probably more in the 4-6 game range. You put Colt out there this season we are probably 2-14.

      • kon, for now

        Same. Put Colt in, four more wins. Until he’s hurt anyway.

      • Different_Cat

        I’d put it at around 2. OTOH, I don’t don’t think there’s a DT in this draft who’s going to win us 3 games by himself.

    • Back to the good ol daysBruce

      I’m shocked so many are bought into Colt. Why is that? Dude has been really bad most of his career. I don’t get it.

  • btg

    Austin
    Nelson is the pick 10 times out of 10

    • AustinSkin

      Hard not to agree.

    There is a lot still to come that will effect what we do in the draft.

      • Lbsand

        copy that, thanks…

  • Different_Cat

    We don’t got no emoticons here?

  • AustinSkin

    Hypothetical: Da’Ron Payne, Quentin Nelson, Vita Vea, Baker Mayfield and Josh Allen are all available at pick #13. The Skins are not going to trade back. Who would you choose?

    While I think Nelson is the most talented athlete at his position, I’d have to take Payne. Dude is seriously disruptive. He and Allen, plus Ioannidis could be a force ti be reckoned with.

    • Flounder

      Due we have Cousins?

      • Flounder

        Actually I would take Payne anyway.

      • AustinSkin

        No

        • alex35332

          If Kirk is not here, than QB’s the number 1 need.

    • Bad Reputation

      Yeah another DL high pick would do us some good.

    • Different_Cat

      Depends on whether we have KC. If not, Mayfield. If so I think you take Nelson. Any time you can take a top 5 talent at No. 13/14 you gotta do it.

  • Different_Cat

    Just occurred to me that I can post cute doggie videos. Watch out!

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      There’s no crying in the Hog Sty

      • Lbsand

        • alex35332

          Then there’s drinking, and maybe some crying.

          That’s when I can’t take you negative motherfuckers. [smiley]

    • kon, for now

      I’m disappointed, sure. But, I can’t rag on them for all the years it’s been there and available for me to talk about the Skins. Nothing awful happened to cause me to jump over to a side piece, it’s just…fizzled out.

      Way more features here anyway.

  • noonefromtampa

    looking at the stats the position of most need is DL
    and we should have a choice of them available when we pick

    • Flounder

      Yes we should and I will take anyone of the top guys.

    • Bad Reputation

      yeah DL is safe and def a need. RB in round 2 maybe. But we need to bolster the Dline and the RB game.

      • noonefromtampa

        when Allen and the Greek went down, we could not stop the run anymore
        add another round 1 talent to the line with Lanier’s development
        that goes a long way to making defense better

        • Flounder

        • Bad Reputation

          Phil Taylor was lost in PS….he was supposedly beasting out. Maybe we get him back too.

    • alex35332

      When we talked with Bullock last show we came to an interesting conclusion. Outside of DL we are in really good shape in terms of starters on defense (if we bring most everyone back). And the real need defensively next year is all about depth. Being 3-4 deep at LB, S would be a big help.

      Really the biggest needs this draft and off season are shaping up to be offensive. We desperately need a bell cow or even two offensive weapons at WR/TE/RB someone who teams have to focus on, because we have a lot of good depth but no stars.

      Cleveland #4, possibly.

    • alex35332

      Looks like a good RB but I pass, I want a guy who will fit what the skins do well, another pass catching speed back.

      • Flounder

        My name is Sony

    • Lbsand

      Love him. Soooo many RB’s in this draft.

      • Flounder

        Yeah this draft is stacked with RB’s.

  • Bad Reputation

    Rotoworld Mock Draft for Skins is:

    13/14. Washington Redskins *Coin flip* – C Billy Price, Ohio State – Daniel Jeremiah called Price one of the better prospects he’s seen at the position in the last decade. Center might not be a weakness, but why not turn it into a strength?

    • Flounder

      Yeah were not drafting a C at 13 some people should just stop doing mocks.

      • mike5790

        and drafted a pretty good prospect last year

        I would have taken Elf in the 2nd, though, might have gotten Anderson in the 3rd anyway, but whatever

    • alex35332

      I do not like that pick at all! I’d probably be apoplectic if we did that.

    • kon, for now

      If it’s the 13th pick in the 4th…sure.

      But not the 1st.

      • Bad Reputation

        Just read it….it’s #13 or 14 overall. Are we really a coin flip?

        • Flounder

          Yes

      • Bad Reputation

        Good thing this isn’t really going to happen. I’d be taking DL at this spot.

      • Different_Cat

        I’d be okay with it if the guy is really that good. C is such a key position.

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Vita! Nooooooooooooooo!

    Not sure about Friday, I know Jamual is working on something but don’t have details of when it will be ready.

    As I’ve mentioned, I think if any of you have interest in writing pieces & or getting involved in creating new content just message us at TheHogSty@gmail.com and we are open to talking about any ideas you have. Steve or I check the email every day.

            I will try my best to notify people when we have a new post. Also 713 is really good about tweeting them out soon as they are up, so you can watch for things there.
            If I’m not too busy in the office (which I will be at some points I’m sure). The oink oink was suggested by someone early on, but I’m sure something will come out organically.

    Alex should setup advertising on the site and try to make some money.

    Not to tip our hand but there is advertising on the top of the site, we’ve got a google ad there and will potentially get a small amount of revenue from that, when I say small, we are talking less than $100 but it’s something.

    We’ve also got a T-shirts page, I’m trying to come up with shirt ideas that people may buy, I’ve got 1 or 2 I think are cool. We would make $2-3 per shirt that we sell, problem is we can’t use words like “Redskins” or NFL, cafe press shut us down for doing that so I had to go to a new T-shirt site. https://shop.spreadshirt.com/TheHogStyShop/

    Also we are in talks with a potential bigger advertiser, that I’m sure folks up here would use.

    Next year, that game needs to be scheduled at least an hour earlier. Or more.

    • Lbsand

      That would make for a 4:00 kickoff on the left coast. Don’t see that happening.

      • kon, for now

        Do they even watch? It’s not like they ever send a team to the championship.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Waaaaaaa! Huggy my wuggy

  • Flounder

    I see a few of the regs. haven’t made it over yet, I doubt Moe will ever come over.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      I just beeped them here.

    • Lbsand

      Yeah, moe basically posted ‘enjoy’ yesterday. He won’t migrate, I don’t think.

      • Flounder

        He can talk to himself over on Wapo.

        • Lbsand

          LOL. Twisi, npi, buck, a few other appear to prefer it there too. We’ll see.

  • Lbsand

    I’m with fishy and some of you others: La’ron Payne. That is all.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      He showed well.

    • Flounder

      That guy is a best put him next to Allen and you have the makings of a great 3-4 d-line. They played together for 3 years.

    • kon, for now

      I’m telling you now, if he goes between 9 – 12, I will lose my shit and remind you over and over and over and, over…why those late season wins over denver and arizona were fucking stupid.

    • Different_Cat

      I prefer Vea but I’d be happy with Payne too.

      • kon, for now

        Better to take the guy that stuffs the run and has the athleticism to break a block and get penetration.

        • Different_Cat

          They can both do that, IMO.

          • Flounder

            Payne looked a lot better than Vea in the bowl games.

    • Different_Cat

      btw, it’s Da’Ron, not La’Ron.

  • Lbsand

    Guess we’ll find out at spring practice what other positions Hurts can play. He was a man about the benching too, supporting the new kid in sideline huddles, handled the press after just fine.

    • Different_Cat

      Very classy reaction.

      • Flounder

        Yeah he definitely was classy and supportive.

    • Flounder

      He is big he could play RB or maybe TE if he can catch.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Memories? minus the press handling…..

  • Different_Cat

    Hey BC — you iced in?

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      I just got to work, hour and a half late. Slid down my driveway, crawled up my road, after that it was good.

      • Flounder

        Yeah we had ice as well I had to put down salt so my Wife doesn’t kill herself.

        • Zig-Zag_BC

          Good thinking. Fwiw, Lynchburg just cancelled school, though the surrounding Counties (including mine) are still on 2 hour delay. Evidently a tractor trailer crashed on black ice somewhere and tore up shit.

          • Different_Cat

            Racist

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            I’m just relaying the news, don’t shoot the messenger, lol

  • Flounder

    You can’t judge a playoff in college football by who wins there conference since a few of the big conferences are a joke. Now if you want to move to an 8 team playoff and give the 5 big conference champions automatic bids and then let the committee vote on the other 3 teams that’s cool to.

    • Different_Cat

      It’s never going to be perfect, but I like the 4-game playoff better than the previous system. I’d definitely like to see it go to 6 or 8 teams.

      • Flounder

        Yeah I think 8 would be awesome, there is no need to take a month off between the end of the season and the semifinal.

  • Lbsand

    Gotta admit, I’m now a fan of The Flyin’ Hawaiian. My favorite play of his last night wasn’t even a play. In the 3rd quarter after he did some freshman/1st game knucklehead move (and there weren’t many!), after he jogged off the field Saben was shall we say sternly lecturing him. Saben hands flying around. Tagovailoa put his arm around Saben shoulder as they walk while coolly nodding slightly, looking him right in the eye, speaking calmly. I say again: put his arm around Nick Saben…and calmed down the future HOF/6-time National Champion coach. NOT the other way around.

    • Flounder

      LOL

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      He throws like a center fielder

  • Flounder

    I see 713 ranting about Bama, that’s funny the best team in the country shouldn’t have been in the playoff because they lost a game to there arch rival on the road. Yet Ohio State who won the big 10 should be even though they got crushed by Iowa who won 7 games.

  • kon, for now
    • kon, for now

      hmmm

  • Flounder

    The Wapo post has over 6300 post and they still haven’t put a new post up. I think the site has finally died.

  • Flounder

    Great game last night, Saban has some big balls to bench Hurts for a freshman who had never taken a meaningful snap in a real game.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      Yeah that kid has a future he throws a really nice ball.

      • Flounder

        Yeah he could be the starter next year, maybe move Hurts to a different position.

    • Different_Cat

      I fell asleep after Alabama scored the tying TD.

      • Flounder

        I had to go to bed at halftime.

    Great game, see you folks tomorrow.

    holy….wow

  • Lbsand

    And a hero is born. Wow!

  • Lbsand

    Welp, Saben obviously not feelin’ to good about his kicker.

  • Scamp

    That guy is money

  • Lbsand

    Wow. Can’t take that sack, just can’t.

  • Lbsand

    Saben with a Bobby Bowden look.

    • kon, for now

      Losing his mind

  • Lbsand

    O, man. Gotta feel for the kid.

  • kon, for now

    Whoa

  • Lbsand

    GA defense is gassed. O needs to string a few 1st downs or it won’t even go OT.

  • kon, for now

    Awwww shit

  • Lbsand

    Wow, the kid is playing poised and great.

  • kon, for now

    Will shit myself if Payne is there at 13

  • Scamp

  • Lbsand

    The question is: can GA keep Bama out of the endzone these last 9 minutes.

  • Different_Cat

    Bacarri Rambo reference

  • Lbsand

    Bobble.

    • Different_Cat

      Yep

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    Get Foster the ball.

  • Lbsand

    QB change sure has jump started Bama.

    This game is like our new blog.

    Two score lead. Doesn’t feel safe at all.

    No flag?

    • Lbsand

      SMH, don’t see how not.

  • Different_Cat

    More Sony, less Chubb.

  • Lbsand

    Nice footwork by Fromm.

    Feels like GA has 10 carries, -10 yds. between the tackels…

      • Different_Cat

        I hate me some Hawaiians alright.

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    So what’s the difference between “a minute ago” and “a few seconds ago”? 6/8 seconds?

    • Lbsand

      That’s important, if your runnin’ a Delorean with a flux capacitor.

      • Zig-Zag_BC

        My Delorean runs on Cocaine.

        • Lbsand

          Ah, a latter model.

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Yep, last model year 🙂

            Imagine Tony saying cocaine.

  • kon, for now

    Right call

  • kon, for now

    uh oh

  • Lbsand

    Inconclusive.

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    These guys keep it up, it’ll be a 60 point game.

  • Lbsand

    Wait, what????

  • MJ45

    WTF?

    Holy fuck…what a play!

      And he’s a southpaw

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    Man, he throws purtty

  • Scamp

    You gotta catch that

  • Lbsand

    I think Bama’s D will played annoyed the entire 2nd half.

    • Scamp

      Maybe even slightly irritated

  • Different_Cat

    Face mask?

  • Different_Cat

    Chubb is doing nothing in this game.

    • Zig-Zag_BC

      They’re saving him for the 4th quarter.

  • Lbsand

    Looked on-side to me!

  • Scamp

    Dude… you knew you were offsides

  • Zig-Zag_BC

    Maybe Saban is ready to go to the NFL…..

  • Lbsand

    I’ll be, yanked him. Advantage Dawgs.

    Did they really pull Hurts?

    Damn, benched his ass.

    I’m an old school hip hop fan. I can appreciate some of Kendrick’s artistry but I can’t stand his flow. It’s unlistenable to me

          • Zig-Zag_BC

            Funny thing is, local weather in town is telling everyone that it’s all good because the air temperature is above freezing. The ground is below freezing, though. When I got far enough out of town where they quit treating the roads, ice rink.

    • MJ45

      You live in the DC area?

    these things happen in Southern families sometimes
    especially when you have uncles named Buck, Jack, Hoot, and Lew-Lew

    • Scamp

      Lew Lew?

      That’s your new name

    Uncharacteristic lack of discipline by Bama tonight.

    GA needs to give Fromm some slants and screens. These deep outs ain’t gettin’ it done.

    • Different_Cat

      They need to give Fromm more deep outs.

    If we are being honest, Alabama shouldn’t even have been in the playoffs at all.

      Royally screwed.

    I can’t stand Saban. Dumped LSU, who I followed, for the Phins, who I also follow. Then he dumped the Phins for Bama.

    So… if you guys were going to eat at a chain/franchise sub shop… what would it be?

    • alex35332

      Sub chain? Have to be national or can I go with local chains?

    Off to the new Wing Stop down here for game snacks. Their wings are not bad.

    I’m not one who is afraid of change. That said…’oink oink’ needs work.

    • Lbsand

      We won’t really need it until the jerkwagons and trolls show up. Speaking of which, where’s npi?

      • alex35332

        you can go back a thread and find him.

  • noonefromtampa

    so nobody from WaPo has responded to my Tweets

    • alex35332

      That’s kinda sad. I mean, I’ll take advantage of it. But that place was at it’s best when the writers and editors cared about it’s success. Cindy treated it like her pet project, treated us all like family, Keith too. Jasno loved to talk with us. But after they all left, slow death.

      • Scamp

        If it’s not about radical left politics WaPo doesn’t really care about it.

    • Lbsand

      As Daffy Duck once so eloquently put it: ‘So Long, Chumps!’

    • Different_Cat

      Sheeit — you can actually post tweets!

    • Steve Thomas

      HPD found this woman unharmed. Apparently she had a terrible reaction to medication and can’t remember where’s she’s been for the past 24 hours.

      • Different_Cat

        Hope that’s all it was, but I wonder if it wasn’t a date rape drug situation.

  • Lbsand

    Does anyone know if Anfernee Jennings is gonna play for Bama? He was killin’ it last week until injured.

  • Lbsand

    Go Jawja!

    • Lbsand

      Hey, it worked!

      • noonefromtampa

        finally made it over huh

        • Lbsand

          Had some issues with my disqus password, and then making supper, and then getting a confirmation email in chrome. But I really like what Alex and sons have done here.

          • alex35332

            Random fact, one of my distant ancestors had a engraving and early photograph company in the mid west called A. Zeese and sons, in the mid 1800’s. He was the last Alex Zeese that I know of.

            Way cool!

          • kon, for now

            Now you know where you got your penchant for image editing from.

            And that’s pretty damn cool that you have that.

          • alex35332

            As I understand it, they did some Civil War photography, but I’ve not
            found any of those, I have 1 of these engraving prints in my office. Yes, being a bit of a history nerd I was really amazed to find that out.

    • alex35332

      I strongly approve of your Icon.

      • Lbsand

        A classic. Like 713 is a classic.

  • Different_Cat

    GA and Bama both have two good RBs. Personally I’d say it’s pick’em between Chubb, Michel, and Harris, with Scarborough being one level down. Bama has some VG DL in Payne and to a lesser extent, Hand. Georgia’s LB Roquon Smith will be a star in the NFL. Bama also has a VG LB in Rashaan Evans. Bama WR Calvin Ridley is one of the top, if not THE top WR coming out. And finally, Bama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick will be a very high draft pick. I’m sure there are other draftable players in the game who I’m not familiar with.

    • alex35332

      I thought the top WR was gonna be the Christian Kirk kid from TCU.

      • Different_Cat

        I honestly haven’t paid that much attention to the WRs so far, but I know they’re both highly regarded.
