I also have a mid-90s heat pump and know the days are numbered. But my understanding (from my father-in-law who used to teach HVAC) is that I'd have to do a full replacement including air handler,...

Given current events in the US I'd say it's a prudent move to diversify some of a portfolio offshore. Mine has stayed around 25-30% for years now and yeah it's underperformed, but I'm not changing...

And they get those recruits because few other teams get the playoff exposure these guys do, plus the Saban mystique/record. And they're the best team in the best conference (on average).

OSU's defense was horrible last night, tons of Bama catches made with receivers running wild through the secondary. There's no way Fields could've made up for that poor play.

We'll never know because they never get a chance same for all the good G5 teams. I think Cincy could've hung in just as well as ND did against Bama, frex, but no I don't think they'd win.

He made a good point about ND though, the CFP wanted them in it but every time ND shows that they don't belong there.

Good? Who knows this year when non-conference games were all but eliminated? And when teams like OSU only play six games in what turned out to be a craptacular Big10 and still get in the CFP?

As I said, good G5 teams have beaten good P5 teams in bowls. But we'll never know in the CFP if a #7 or 8 could win because the P5 won't let it happen.
