Re: College Football Week 0

Although I guess it could be worse for Nebraska fans: https://twitter.com/BoardGeniuses/status/1432334170349613062/photo/1 Poor Husker fans... So delusional. I mean in reality, Brett Bielema probably would have been a good choice for Nebraska. People make that comparison because of underwhelming ex...

Re: Chicago Cubs 2021

For what it's worth--maybe not much--ESPN still had the Cubs rated as a trade deadline "winner" yesterday for what they got in return for players that all (except maybe Rizzo) were leaving as free agents anyway.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2021

Part of me thinks that, in a bad way, they'll be compared to the '85 Bears since they only came away with one WS title. But, yeah, it was a heck of a 4-5 year run.

Re: NBA Draft

I like Ayo’s game. I don’t see him doing anything spectacular, but think he can have a solid NBA career and become a rotation player. He'll have to excel in one area. The NBA is the toughest professional league to make it. I'd bet on him having a decent career in the NBA. I was listening to one of ...

Re: NBA 2021 Playoffs

Agreed on the Golden St point. They really should have won. Second half was actually pretty good basketball. Neither team played all that well in the first half.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2021

It's a testament to the pitching (and Kimbrel of all people) that the Cubs have managed even a 5-6 start given how historically bad the hitting has been so far.

Re: All Star Game

I still don't think it was a very well-thought out decision. If what I've read is true (I can only go by what others say) Colorado's voter restrictions are just as tight if not more so and MLB took $60-100 million of projected revenue (depending on what source read) out of a largely African-American...

Re: Pat Ryan's next chapter

I will admit my first reaction to seeing this was, "Wow, how odd!" Not that Coach Ryan was hired for it, but I mean the position itself. Do most D1 programs have this type of position or did Bielema see that relations were so frayed he felt the need for it?

Why did Howard have Dickinson - the biggest player on the floor by far - throwing the ball in under the basket with .5 seconds left?? Great question.

Re: March Madness 2021 Thread

Wagner went 1-10, Smith 1-7, Dickinson 5-10 (not good for him) and 1-4 on free throws. Not going to beat many teams with that shooting, although they still had plenty of chances tonight. Kudos to UCLA. They had to make it a slow game to win and they dominated the pace of play.

Re: March Madness 2021 Thread

I was more confident about Michigan winning this one than I was LSU; however, I was not anticipating Michigan to dominate outside one FSU run in the early second half.

Thank you and no big deal...it was 8:15 last night by the time I was settled in to watch anything anyway, lol! I'm actually hoping to go that game in-person next week. It's a Saturday game, if I'm not mistaken?

My brother is a UCLA fan and starting about two weeks before the field was announced, he started telling me the PAC-12 was way better than advertised. I can't imagine he picked that though.

There is alot of game left, but Loyola isnt going to fold up, so the Illini need to make some serious adjustments. Including effort. Key word is adjustment. At some point, the Illini have to realize these fouls aren't going to get called and adjust to the officiating. Is Cockburn getting fouled som...

Yep, searching for school's Youtube channels is your best bet. I know some schools are going only through the NFHS Network, which does require payment. I was able to watch Rochester/Jacksonville last night for free on Rochester's Youtube channel.

Re: Fan Attendance

Illini West put their spring attendance policy out on social media tonight. Basically, for football they are allowing family of players, students, and school staff to attend. Schools don't normally pull this stuff out of thin air so I imagine that'll be pretty standard across the state.

You can easily justify giving Alabama the number 1 over Michigan, especially if the Livers' injury is taken into account by the committee.
