Why is the playoff schedule so messed up this season? The short answer is the Grand Daddy of the all, the Rose Bowl. Is there any way to fix this mess? (5:50)

In the Citrus Bowl, Alabama beat Michigan 35-16 capped by a Najee Harris touchdown with twenty-six seconds left. Was Nick Saban truly running up the score on Jim Harbaugh? (21:23) And speaking of Alabama, will Tua Tagovailoa choose to enter the NFL draft on Monday or stay for one more run with the Tide? 

In the NFL ranks, Baylor head coach Matt Rhule’s name has been tossed around for a few opening including Dallas and New York. Which job is he gunning for? (37:32)

Dan wraps the podcast by asking the honorable Judges Forde and Thamel to preside over cases involving a family being tossed out of a bowl game and a couple arrested with tickets to heaven, crack cocaine and a baby alligator. (42:11)
