    The Bench 2018 Sports Talk Thread

    First off...Happy New Year to everyone..hope you had a safe welcome to 2018!

    playoffs...coaches...playoffs..coaches..

    COACHES! - Gone - Pagano/Colts. Caldwell/Lions. Del Rio/Raiders. Fox/Bears. Plus Lewis is leaving the Bungles and the rumor is that Arians is retiring in Arizona. 20% turnover in coaching this year. Interesting to see who ends up where.

    PLAYOFFS! - AFC - Pats/Steelers get byes. Jax/Buffalo. KC/Tenn. Don't see the Pats faltering on that path.
    NFC - Eagles/Vikings get byes. Rams/Falcons. NO/Carolina. If the Eagles had Wentz, they would be my favorite. Without Wentz, Rams or Vikes become my favorites.

    College playoffs tonight - haven't watched 1 second of any of the other bowl games, doubt that I will start now. The committee putting Alabama in soured me on the process - might as well go back to the BCS and make it the best two teams.

    PGA season kicks off in Hawaii on Thursday with the Tournament of Champions.

    Carr isn't the only QB who has missed time in multiple seasons - seems like it is EVERY QB.

    I hope it is the year of the Dawg! The thought of Alabama winning another national title without winning their division let alone conference makes me throw up in my mouth a bit. Maybe the only undefeated team should be the national championship winner - congrats UCF.

    Golf is back for real in two days....

    The Bungles re-sign Marvin Lewis for another two years...WHY????

    Carson Palmer retires - always seemed like a pretty class act.

    Most importantly - golf is back tomorrow!!! Can't wait to see the islands of Hawaii on TV, while shivering with two blankets over me INSIDE!

    Was watching the Heels/Seminoles hoops game last night and couldn't figure out why the arena wasn't packed/sold out....than saw that Tallahassee had its first measurable snow fall in almost 30 years - apparently no one in Florida knows how to drive in the snow???

    And in related news...golf is back in approximately 8 hours....the 25 MPH winds on the Hawaiian islands will be a bit different than the 25 mph winds in the northeast right now.....

    Reports are saying that Gruden will be getting a $100 million/10 year deal with the Raiders...should be interesting.

    GO JAGS! Don't watch golf, but love Hawaii. Lived their for 4 years, and went last summer for a 10 day vacay - my youngest daughter's high school graduation gift. My wife and I really considered moving back after we went there again. Can provide a link to my flickr if anyone is interested seeing the pics I took.

    Jags winning this weekend would be good by me! I actually got the same HS graduation gift - spent a week on Maui. Absolutely loved it. If/when I go back, it will be to see the Maui Classic hoops tourney with UNC as one of the teams.

    Chiefs done. Rams done. The exact opposite from last years playoffs when home teams dominated!

    Duke and North Carolina both lose today! Is UVa for real? Or is this just another year of being a one trick pony that gets exposed come tourney time. I lean to the latter!

    No one wants to be a #1 seed in college hoops this year - Michigan State loses to Ohio State, who lost to North Carolina...who lost to Wofford. Transitive property, Wofford is your number one team??

    NFL playoffs a complete 180 from last year - all 4 home favorites covered last year...not one of them covered this year. If you bet the 4 team underdog parlay, you are enjoying filet mignon this week!!

    Still not sure how you get to be national champs without winning your division or conference title.... UCF should have been the #4 seed this year and Little Nicky should have been playing on New Years Day, not in the playoffs. Again, transitive property....UCF beat Auburn, who beat Alabama, so UCF is the national champ!!

    And before anyone complains that a national champ can't win the title by beating a 3 loss team...let's remember that BYU beat a 5 loss?? Michigan team to win their national title.....

    Golf note that I saw this morning -- with his win last week Dustin Johnson is now one win away from tying the most wins on tour since 2008. The current leader - Tiger Woods. Tiger Woods hasn't won a tournament since 2013 and has missed the better part of 4 seasons due to injury (or rehab..) and still has the most wins on tour..that is crazy!

    Raiders in trouble.....broke the rule.....they had Gruden locked in even before the interviews with the other!! Hope they get fined and Gruden is not allowed to sign with the Raiders.....and they (raiders) have to sign one of the other people that they did the interviews with!! : )
