    Each year when the final four of college football is announced there is a team or two who claims to have been left out unjustly.

    The argument always is that if we picked six there would be teams seven and eight who would claim to be shafted.  There is always going to be someone who thinks that the system cheated them.

    “It takes almost no time at all for a dry Christmas tree to catch fire and spread through an entire house,” Nelson said.
