Great Quotes From Coaches.

"These guys do not wear undershirts. These guys do not wear cutoff socks. If it was legal, they would be having a beer at halftime. They are old school. They want to fight you. ... These guys wish they were smoking a cigarette and having a Budweiser." -- Portland State coach Bruce Barnum o...

Re: Anybody See Where.....

Donovan...I will never again attend a day time game in Florida in August.... We are at an age where we are past sitting cheek to jowl in the heat and humidity of August. Indeed we are, my friend. And in the Northwest, gone are the days of sitting on aluminum in10 degree weather, deceiving ourselves...

Re: Anybody See Where.....

I have always been comfortable with baseball calling it the World Series. What I am not comfortable with is that dang designated hitter rule. Get rid of it. The purpose it was established for never worked and is certainly not working now. I love the American League except for that one loathsome, det...

Re: Anybody See Where.....

I wished I had, but spot on. Over the last 12 or 13 years, this board has discussed this so much. I suspect the division is about 50/50 as to regional ball versus a national program. The article is right on one point for sure. Nobody watches football and says, this would be better if we brought in m...

Oh Boise

The Dolphins beat the Patriots on Sunday. How is this relevant?

Re: Put-Up or Shut-Up, Mr. White.......

UCF averages 36K fans and Florida 83K. UCF needs to jump on this. If they persist to be the Don Quixote II of football, get the money while you can. These games will be scheduled early in the season and the loser will lose more than the winner gains.

Re: Anybody See Where.....

Schedules are made years in advance. SOS is determined after the fact. Talk about a crap shoot. And that system is defended by normally rational people that are so obsessed to have a National Championship. CPT 90834

Re: Anybody See Where.....

Notre Dame, BYU, New Mexico State, Liberty, and UMass made the decision to be Independent. That means that they get games when and where they can but do not get to be in the Championship pool. And that cuts both ways. Maybe the best team is an Independent and if so, then the National Championship do...

Freeze to Liberty

It seems to be an oxymoron for me to say I abhor gossip, as a member of this board, albeit I don't think we do too much of that. So I was very surprised when I read this article. I know nothing about Liberty University other than what is in the news, mostly very conservative, whatever that means, po...
