Re: Chris Davis back to Baltimore - 7 years $161M

Yeah, what the hell is with this paying him for 20 years thing? Like where did that idea come from? What does it accomplish, is this sort of thing common?

Re: The Tech Thread

I went from an iPhone 4s to a Samsung galaxy s5 active as my last switch. After using the new one for a week I grabbed some pictures off the old one and couldn't believe I had found the 4s' screen to be big enough when I was using it. It honestly made me laugh how small it felt compared to my new s5.

Re: 2015-2016 college basketball

I came here to mention it. Both these teams look really good. Pulling for OU and I don't really know why. Maybe just rooting against the traditional powerhouse.

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

Yeah, the big ten east is going to be an absolute slugfest for years to come with dantonio's spartans, meyer's buckeyes, and harbaugh's wolverines. Also, I thought northwestern was really overrated at 13th, mostly because of what I think was a flukey win against stanford. They proved it for me today.

I mean you're not wrong haha, its objectively less effective to try to "jack up" some guy than it is to wrap up and bring him down. I still don't like seeing guys get thrown out because they came in and happened to have their head in the wrong spot, or the receiver ducked at the last secon...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

I mean this isn't the generation where you're gonna see it eliminated. Sure it's easy to not do it, but if you've played a certain way for 10 years, in some situations muscle memory is going to kick in and you're gonna lower your head. I'd expect to see the targeting and crowning start phasing out a...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

Meh, I understand the desire to change the game, but ejections should be for things that are malicious in my book. I think giving everyone one strike and then you're out would be fine, unless the hit is obviously a guy head hunting. Still review the penalty, with three possible rulings: 1. No foul 2...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

Well I got lucky and got to be at the Bama-MSU game today. My brother attends msu and got randomly chosen to try a field goal at half time of a game this year. He made it and won two tickets, airfare, and hotel room and invited me along. Sucks that it wasn't close, felt bad for him cause he was just...

Re: Chapman to Yankees for 4 minor leaguers

That's.. An idea. I don't really see why it wouldn't be feasible outside of the starting pitchers not liking the disruption to their routines or whatnot.

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

That targetting call against Nebraska was actually the worst one I think I've seen yet. Why not just make it flag football? If that play merits ejection then just take everyone's pads and helmets off and make it non-contact.

Thought kneels counted as team yards, like sacks. Maybe I'm wrong or its different from league to league. I went up 30 points (thanks for 45 cam newton) with only one player for each of us to go in my semifinal this week. Antonio brown for him and david johnson for me. Then antonio brown went off an...

I actually haven't ever really played any final fantasy. I didn't happen upon it when I was younger so I don't have any nostalgic connection, and I also haven't just decided to play it. Also never played kingdom hearts so I don't even have that connection to it. I see people go bonkers for it all th...

Re: College Football - Championship Week (Dec. 5)

1. Clemson unless they lose.

2. Bama unless they lose.

3. Oklahoma for sure.

4. Winner of big ten championship is in for sure.


So say UNC beats Clemson handily, do you think they jump into the top 4 over Stanford?

Re: College Football - Week 13 (Nov. 28)

Nebraska really doesn't suck this year. Sure the typical husker fan expects a national championship every year, but its their first year under Riley, so I personally wasn't even expecting a 10 win season. They've lost 4 games in the last 30 seconds of the game, 1 game in overtime, and 1 bad one agai...
