Re: 2015-2016 Chicago Bulls season

Good thing Butler played 47 minutes on a bad ankle to help beat the worst team in the league on a Thursday night in January. Great job, Thibs Hoiberg!

Re: 2015-16 Blackhawks season

Panarin is an absolute beast, but I wonder how much of his success is the fact that he's on a line with Kane. No defense can accurately chase those 2 around at the same time. It will be interesting to see how he fares once the lines are inevitably changed up in the playoffs once a team starts to at...

Re: The Beer Thread

Tried 4 of the Bourbon Countys on Saturday. Here's my rank: 1. Barleywine--a HUGE upset as I'm not normally a big Barleywine guy, but it was great. 2. Regular--This year's edition is about the best it's ever been. Last year's was the worst it's been IMO. 3. Rye--Pretty sweet compared to the others, ...

I always thought one of Allen/Murray would transfer, but not both. God knows what Sumlin tells kids just to get them to commit, but based on Allen's tweet its whatever it takes to get him to sign. I know he had to tell Kyler whatever to keep him away from Texas and avoid having his class fall apart...

Re: Jason Heyward - 2016 CF?

This works out for the Cubs in 2.5 out of 4 scenarios, so I'm going to consider it a win overall either way. 1. He signs with the Cubs and is awesome. WIN 2. He signs with the Cards and sucks. WIN 3. He signs with the Cards and gives us another fake reason to hate him even if he's good. SEMI-WIN 4. ...

This is not all on the defense. Illinois dominates the floor and the other team time and again bailed out by lazy 3 pointers. All on shots you wouldnt want your team to take ever. Not that I'm 100% behind Groce, but I can't help but wonder where we'd be right now with a healthy team all year. Not c...

Soo Harper is gonna get what, $350 million in a few years when he's a FA? if he stays something like 2015 Harper? why not $400M? Hell, I'm not so sure 400 million wouldn't be the starting point if he performs anywhere close to what he did last year. It's probably going to be a 10+ year deal (albeit...

Re: 12/6: Bears vs 49ers, noon on Fox

For Bears to make it in at 9-7, it can't come down to just them and Seattle due to head to head. If Seattle, Atlanta, and the Bears are all 9-7, the Bears win most of those tiebreakers.

Re: 11/26: Bears at Green Bay, 7:30 on NBC (Thursday night)

I know this game really doesn't mean anything in the grand scheme of things, but my inner meatball wants the Bears to ruin Brett Favre night for all of those hillbilly mouth breathers and make them at least worry that the Bears could be good in upcoming years.

High but realistic. Ask Nebraska how thinking they are something they're not is working out for them? No one would touch that job after they canned a 9-4 coach so they settled for Howdy Doody and now they suck.
