Re: 3A Sectional Final ends in double forfeit

The decision is more than fair. The highlight show on NBCSports Chicago did not show the fight, but they did show the play in question and then about five or so seconds afterwards where the fight started brewing. I thought it was clearly unintentional that the North Lawndale player ended up under th...

Re: The USA is A Okay since Kaepernick needs to get paid

And, because the teams divide that up into 1/32, even the $60-80 million is not that steep a price for the NFL. Good for Kaepernick if he gets it, I guess.

Re: 2018-19 Bracketology

The need to review "hook and hold" and make it a flagrant foul is literally the dumbest thing I've ever seen. It's a foul, call it, and move on.

Re: IHSA Districts Passes

I would imagine that in most cases, teams are going to play the same schools varsity and JV. Only in extreme travel cases would they not. We've had districts here in Iowa for a while and we almost always play the same schools varsity and JV. Generally speaking, if the travel is around two hours--whi...

Northwestern literally just had like 14 people on the field. Penalty?
Of course not
So..why are the refs out to get Ohio this week? By your theory, the refs should be all Buckeyes since that's the only way the B10 gets a team to the playoffs.

Re: College Football Week 13

That sounds right, unfortunately. The rivalry has actually lacked balance for almost 30 years now. John Cooper of Ohio St. was 2-10-1 against Michigan and then Tressel and now Meyer have dominated it the other way.

Re: College Football Week 13

In seriousness, I'm really not even mad at what has transpired today in Columbus. I'm just stunned. I know offense has not been the problem for the Buckeyes this year, but how on earth was this the Michigan defense that gave up the most points in the history of the series? :?

Re: 2018 NFL Draft Thread

Other than the Browns, I thought the draft went somewhat as planned. Once the Browns went with Mayfield, while that was a surprise, it was fairly easy to then see how the other QBs would fall into place and same defensively after they took Denzel Ward over Chubb.
