    [–] AP voter who has Alabama at No. 3 in his poll explains himself to Paul Finebaum moby323 62 points ago * (lasted edited 4 hours ago) in CFB

    I get that there were real questions in Alabama’s secondary with basically all new starters, but Saban has worked his magic and proven again that (like Dabo with receivers) it’s his specialty and he can teach those positions as well as anyone ever.

    So when that question is “answered” for Alabama, you are essentially left with a team that are reigning national champions and replacing their decent-but-not-great QB with one who is leading the nation in passer rating.

    If you don’t think that results in what should be considered the #1 team, then you have some seriously flawed logic or are just being intentionally obstinate.

    While I agree that neither of those teams has had very impressive wins (except perhaps A&M and Michigan), keep in mind that one of those two teams made the football playoff last year and returned almost all of their best players.

    See the difference?

    If you think Notre Dame is the 6th best team in the country, then you must be blind or new to football.

    Do these people even watch the games?

    [–] I am thinking of getting counter top burner to plug it outside the house for the piping hot cast iron pan searing... What are your thoughts? moby323 2 points ago in sousvide

    Mine isn’t. I bought a well reviewed one and it ruined my steaks because once the pan gets really hot it shuts off and has a built in cooldown time.

    I use a broiler for almost everything now, not sure why more people don’t. It’s easy, Sears great, doesn’t smoke up the house.

    [–] South Florida Becomes Fastest Florida FBS Program to Reach 150 wins moby323 1 points ago in CFB

    One problem is that several schools have really infiltrated Florida to recruit talent. Honestly, if you had the top 100 recruits in Florida, I bet most go to schools outside the state.

    Dabo has made such an impact in recruiting in Georgia (particularly Atlanta area) that it is going to take UGA a while to win that back.

    [–] I was shopping for butane refills for my kitchen torch. Usually the cans come with warnings all over them about the dangers of inhaling butane (as a drug). Then I saw this. Check out the name. moby323 2 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in WTF

    Yeah but “whip it” is slang for an inhalant drug (where I live).

    Usually, specifically refers to nitrous oxide, but it is a general tearm for canisters of inhalant (butane, compressed air etc)

    [–] Alabama football isn’t all that great. (Nick Saban told me to say that.) moby323 6 points ago in CFB

    Yeah. For one thing, watching Hard Knocks I liked him a lot more than I would have expected. His antics at OU made him seem like an ass, but I realize now it was just immaturity and not malice.

    He seems like a pretty OK guy, and he clearly is a good teammate.

    Also, he is the real deal as far as QB. He has potential to be one of the real greats.

    It’s possible, his junior year it was 175 for the season which should have put him in the top 10 or 15 for the season.

    EDIT:

    You were right, he led the season that year (although that typically isn’t high enough to be #1 most seasons)

    EDIT #2:

    Damn, Baker Mayfield had a rating above 196. Most seasons, the leader is at about 179 or 180

    [–] If you are Feeling brave enough, I HIGHLY recommend getting a small kitchen torch. moby323 2 points ago in sousvide

    Yeah I looked into that, I think a decent one would be around $55.

    Kitchen storage is an issue as well for me (I have so many tools, small appliances, gadgets etc).

    I like that the little butane torch and its fuel can fit into a little box.

    Just out of curiosity, when was the last time Bama had a QB leading the nation in passer rating?

    [–] If you are Feeling brave enough, I HIGHLY recommend getting a small kitchen torch. moby323 3 points ago in sousvide

    I got the “Kitchen Sophisticate” one.

    One thing I learned is it has to be full to get a really good flame.

    It will keep burning long after, but the flame won’t be as intense. I basically top it off before every use.

    [–] ESPN Week 4 Power Rankings moby323 1 points ago in CFB

    Yeah I thin so far Clemson is definitely 4. But I’m not too worried because we always start slow because Dabo likes to play so many players when the game is in hand.

    The other week he played 34 players on defense and 29 of them had tackles.

    There was a part of that Georgia Missouri game where their defense looks like they couldn’t stop anybody.
