    NCAA Playoffs

    Some Bama fans can be rude not all of us are (yes I am a Bama fan I live about an hour and half away from the school). I can see Ohio State's case for getting in but that 31 point loss is ultimately what kept them out. Just hard to look over that. I wanted my team to get in but I honestly wasn't expecting them to get in.

    Well Alabama is getting all their injured players back except one. They lost 4 linebackers in the first game of the year. They will be back. Alabama yes does get the benefit of the doubt because they have been dominant for so many years. They have won 4 out of the last 8 national championships so that does count for something even though it shouldn’t. Alabama will be healthy against Clemson. So that will/should be a great game.

    Well but there is no requirement saying you have to win your conference. Yes they would prefer to put conference champions in and if Wisconsin had won then no one would be having this conversation but they didn’t. I will agree with you on UCF beating Auburn cause I hate Auburn with a passion. That’s a game I’m going to enjoy watching. Bama is gonna be about 99% for that game against Clemson they’ll have a bulk of their linebackers back. They’ll be short one of them and then a defensive back that got hurt late in the season so they will look way different on defense with almost a month to finish getting healthy and to prepare and plan. So I doubt they will get beat by 14 maybe win by 14. Vegas odds have Bama 2-1 to win the National Championship. Georgia I feel will give Oklahoma all they can handle and vice versa and ultimately it’ll probably come down to who has the ball last. It’s also gonna depend on what Georgia defense shows up as well. If the same defense that shows up that played against Auburn the first time then Oklahoma will blow them out but if the defense that shows up that showed up against Auburn in the SEC Championship Game then they might be able to shut down Oklahoma’s high powered offense. Georgia should be able to score cause Oklahoma has little to no defense so that’s not much of an issue. I believe their defense is like #43 while Georgia is #3 while Alabama is #2 and Clemson is #6.

    You can’t lose a conference game to a low tier team by 31 points and get in. It’s not bias at all. Bama lost one game in one of the most hostile environments in college football to their most hated rival not even close to 100% cause of injuries at linebacker (2 out and 2 playing but not at full speed) and only lost by 12 points to the #6 at the time team. How is that biased? They had one loss not two. Yeah Ohio State may have been the conference champion but they got in last year not winning it.

    4.2.6 - Is Redis now the better option?

    Like I said all I know was when I had bad info in there when setting up Memcached my site wouldn't load so I'm figuring it must be working since it's loading. Maybe Matt or Lindy will confirm one way or the other. I wish there was a way to test.

    4.2.6 - Is Redis now the better option?

    This is how I have it setup and have the constants.php file uploaded and my site is loading and working with no problem. As you can see it's running as a socket and no port number defined and no server password either. When I was trying to setup Memcached and had incorrect vales in the constants.php file my site would not load at all. Would just be a blank white screen. So I don't know what to tell you other than what I am showing you in the screen shot and the fact my site is loading and actually working.

    4.2.6 - Is Redis now the better option?

    Same way I did with memcache. Copied the info my host uses for socket and pasted it in the area for the IP address and saved uploaded the constants.php file. Keep in mind I’m assuming it’s working because my site is actually loading and loading pretty quickly. I’m assuming if you have bad info in the constants.php file your site won’t load at least mine didn’t when I was trying to get memcache to work before.

    4.2.6 - Is Redis now the better option?

    As far as I’m aware of I’m using Redis as a socket with no port defined. My hosting provider runs both memcache and Redis as a socket.

    Our Picks Homepage - Supporttopic

    I’m sure the forum still works it’s just not the first thing that pops up when you type the url of your site in. I seriously doubt this application crashes your forum. I’m guessing right now your forum is probably set as default so it loads when someone goes to your site. When you set this as default this will be what people see first sorta like a landing page but I’m sure your forums are still working you’ll just need to add /forums/ to the end of your domain name and there will also be a link in the navigation that says Forum probably under the Browse heading.

    Caffeine by ThemeTree

    Awesome theme and even more awesome support. Was having issues that I thought was a bug (which turned out to be user error and a small bug) and @Brian A. got me all sorted out. Loving how the theme is looking on my site.
  11. Kraken.io is fairly cheap and works great used their service with an addon for xF. Hopefully something will come out for IPS soon.

    I'll be surprised if they keep y'alls coach after this year. That QB they started Saturday looks like he could be a good one just need a better coach to develop him. Anyways I run a college football site myself but mine is for all Power 5 teams. My site Nice site. Not much of a NFL watcher especially with all the kneeling during the National Anthem going on. As a veteran of two branches of the military to me it's like a slap in the face, Back on topic it would be nice to see this app updated to work with the newer version of IP.
