A lot of you have come to me and asked me to write some non-datacenterish personal commentary type posts, in an effort to generate more content. So, I thought I would start the new year by obliging that request that I’ve received several times now, and hopefully shed some light on who Nick is. :)
On Saturday, I made a prediction that the Alabama – Notre Dame championship game would end with Bama winning 42-17. Even I thought that was a bit outlandish, but I was simply trying to throw my stake in the ground that this was going to be yet another blowout, and hopefully expose [yet again] how broken this whole BCS system is.
Imagine my shock and awe as the score reached 42-14 with ~8 minutes left in the 4th quarter. Even amidst all the hype the weeks leading up to the game, and even DURING the pre-game proceedings that this was going to be a close game, or that Notre Dame would “finally disavow the SEC dominance,” I felt very strongly that this was going to be a repeat of last year’s LSU shutout.
“Should I head straight to Vegas?”
“Should I go buy a ton of lotto tickets?”
