For the record: the College Championship had originally been scheduled to air beginning February 5, so Alex must have had to redo his closing remarks to remove any reference to Jenny waiting two weeks before defending her title.
Since it's elimination of something, they could have simply cut it and ran longer credits (I'm sure any comments would be pretty short) or added some tidbit to an interview to get back to the scheduled run time. Probably all done in the edit bay.

First of all, I think they have to have Ryan back.
There are two different schisms that are referred to sometimes as great schisms. 1054, with the mutual excommunications (partly justified by Filioque) and the schism of the 14th century which was a schism based on two claimants to the papacy
The clue was the rift between Latin and Greek churches
Great Schism is right
He comes back

Last week there was an entire category about Will Rogers. Now there's a Final Jeopardy featuring "Oklahoma" as the correct response. Maybe my home state is finally creeping out of the obscurity of flyover country!
Sorry, but as long as Oklahoma continues to sit next door to the Great State of Texas, it will forever live in obscurity.
I've got to defend Oklahoma, my southern neighbor. It's gotten a lot better now since that family moved from Oklahoma to Texas and raised the IQ in both states :lol:

I agree. With the extra $2400 from a proper ruling, Ryan would have had enough to win the game on his sole get. At least potentially. It's always possible he would've gone extra-wimpy on his second DD bet and still been locked out. But a) I doubt it, and b) that shouldn't be a consideration when deciding to bring someone back. With the correct ruling, Ryan had a path to victory. Without it, he didn't. Bring Ryan back!

It's all in your perspective. Me 'n' my fellow Okies sometimes refer to Texas as "Baja Oklahoma."

Definitely agree that Great Schism should have been accepted. Can a player challenge a ruling months after the taping, or is discretion left solely to the producers?
