@Phototograffer My understanding is that books from third parties can be received by the home-state offices of Senators, but not in DC Would certainly love to see all senators have this book in their possession, regardless of party — PolitiTweet.org

As Saudi Arabia returns to the news with a vengeance—Trump is considering sending thousands of troops there—I thought I'd mention that if you were waiting for PROOF OF CONSPIRACY to drop under $20 to buy it as a Christmas gift, the moment has come: $19.68. https://t.co/uZ0drEK1vo — PolitiTweet.org

@FiveThirtyEight UPDATE/ @FiveThirtyEight has updated its model to reflect a 50% chance of Wisconsin making the CFP if it, LSU, and Oklahoma win today. The latter two are considered likely, whereas Wisconsin has a *very* steep hill to climb. But the way they played against Minnesota... who knows. — PolitiTweet.org

@FiveThirtyEight SOURCE/ Feel free to disagree with me. Just don't pretend that I've taken the minority view of how this (perhaps, I freely concede, quite obscure) hypothetical *could* play out. Here's what the top oddsmakers say about LSU and Wisconsin wins tonight, in terms of CFP admission: https://t.co/zoEcoEWZp3 — PolitiTweet.org

@Mick_Limerick I wasn't upset by that result. As I mentioned to someone above, I find it impossible to be angry when an underdog does well, even if I'm never going to be happy when my alma mater loses. — PolitiTweet.org

@b_rad31415 I wasn't, but I will also tell you that unlike many sports fans I do not get upset if an underdog beats my favorite team. My love of underdogs causes me to basically feel neutrally about it. I admit, it's weird. But I've always been that way. — PolitiTweet.org

@LaurenDownSouth Anything can happen on any given Saturday, but the way Georgia looked in its last game versus the way LSU looked causes me to suspect LSU is going to coast. I could obviously be wrong. By comparison, OSU struggled with an overrated PSU team, and UW had its best game of the year. — PolitiTweet.org

PS/ I want to repeat that the top CFP prediction website, @FiveThirtyEight, has Wisconsin with a 51% chance to make the CFP if they win tonight. So there are many fine responses to this thread, but saying I don't understand NCAAF after watching it for 25 years isn't one of them. — PolitiTweet.org

@FalconsFans_CHI The top prediction website for the CFP says that Wisconsin is more likely than not to make the CFP if it wins tonight, so I'm struggling to see how that adds up to me not understanding college football after having watched it for 25 years — PolitiTweet.org

8/ I think everyone comes to sports for a different reason, and that's okay. There are some people looking for *sense*, and to those folks there'll always be a good argument for OSU being better than UW, basically every year. Some of us are rooting for underdog-driven chaos. /end — PolitiTweet.org

7/ I mean, don't get me wrong, I *totally* get the argument for OSU staying ahead of Wisconsin even if it loses tonight. All I'm saying is that I don't get why statisticians can easily see the opposite result—but sports fans can't. I just find that a conceptually weird situation. — PolitiTweet.org

6/ We've never before seen so many sports fans saying that an effective #1 losing to an effective #5 would have no chance of causing the latter to jump over the former in the rankings. People *do* realize that 2-loss teams get ranked ahead of 1-loss teams *all the time*, right? — PolitiTweet.org

5/ I find it interesting that the statisticians say Wisconsin has a 51% chance of getting into the CFP if it wins tonight, but all you can get sports fans to say is "Wisconsin won't win!" Why won't folks play along and consider the oddness of the hypothetical situation described? — PolitiTweet.org

4/ For those who don't know, the CFP system and culture establishes that the committee considers not just record or body of work but where the teams are at eye test-wise at the end of the year. I'm not predicting anything about tonight's game—just posing a hypothetical situation. — PolitiTweet.org
