A big fight within the New York Giants training camp caused quite the stir

-Apparently, the majority of the team was in a fight with starting QB Daniel Jones at the bottom of the dogpile, and that got head coach Joe Judge pissed off

-The team did sprints and push-ups for a while after it…does that work at the NFL level?

Anonymous B1G coaches talked about all teams in the conference, and nothing really was glowing of Nebraska at all

-Athlon Sports conducted the anonymous conversations about the B1G teams, and all 5 comments on Nebraska were less than glowing. We know Sip hates anonymous sources, so he probably hates this to begin with. But it’s still something

-Among the things said were a lack of offensive identity, less-than-stellar passing ability for Adrian Martinez, and something isn’t matching up in the program

A Big 12 and Pac-12 alliance? Clemson and Florida State to the SEC? Just another day of madness in conference realignment Rumorville

-The Athletic announced yesterday that Bob Bowlsby was meeting with the Pac-12 to discuss the possibility of a scheduling alliance, merger, or other ways for the conferences to work together

-And then there’s the rumors about Clemson and Florida State sniffing around the SEC, and possibly Michigan and Ohio State, too. Where does the B1G stand in all of this?

-The other day it was mentioned that Colorado could be a fit for the B1G…but is Kevin Warren’s ‘leadership’ going to sink the conference or not?

Can anyone catch up to the 5 or 6 teams in college football?

-Watching the championship game reminds you of how far Nebraska is away, but they are not alone.

-How much, if any would expanding the playoffs help? What is more important to you, an entertaining product or crowning the best team throughout the season?

-Can you ever consider a one loss team the greatest of all-time?

-Are you less interested in the national scene when Nebraska isn’t competitive?

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-Can Ohio State beat Alabama in the national championship? Were you surprised they beat Clemson?

-Notre Dame made the playoffs, but was blasted again…how close are they to actually having a chance to win a playoff game?

-Why are Iowa State and Northwestern winning at impressive levels?

Notre Dame gets made fun of a lot for their lack of success in big games, but wouldn’t Nebraska fans kill for what they have?

-ESPN Stats & Info put out a stat that Notre Dame is 0-7 since 1998 in BCS or New Year’s Six games, being outscored by 161 points and all 7 losses being by 14+ points

-That’s not a fun thing to deal with, but think about the 8 straight bowl losses Nebraska had at one time in its history and compare that to now…that doesn’t seem so bad, does it?

The CFP is set, with Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and Notre Dame clinching berths

-Notre Dame got smoked by Clemson on Saturday, but remained ahead of Texas A&M and others for the final spot….and Ohio State barely got by Northwestern…will either of those teams have any shot vs. Bama/Clemson?
