Re: TV thread

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhh... It gets lumped in all the time, but it really feels more like timing as opposed to direct impact. It was the very definition of a show made by committee, which sets it very much apart from pretty much all of the other acclaimed "golden age" shows that have been driven pr...

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

Feel bad for Frank Mason, hell of a player. Some of your fans are insane, calling for Self to be on the hot seat..... He's, for my money, the best coach in college. People are dumb. Who are you gonna get that's better? Coach K? Cal? Roy (who couldn't win here)? I feel bad for Frank too. Basically a...

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

That Kansas comeback/West Virginia choke was something to behold. Whatever you think about Bill Self, the guy is amazing. Soon to be 13 consecutive B12 titles. Going to be a long time before we see that again in a power conference. And the B12 is the best conference this year (sorry, ACC). Unbeliev...

It was maybe a blessing we didn't get HFA considering that got us 4 games with Kyle.

Not yet. I think he's in Japan currently and needs to take a physical once he gets back.

Re: ITT: Raisin & Tom/King Kong Obsess Over Shohei Otani

Maybe I'm being petulant, but it seems unfair that old decisions (like overspending in IFA) should be affected by a new rule. Maybe the Cubs (or other teams) wouldn't have spent the way they did if they'd known it would prevent them from bidding on Otani in the future. Am I just being a baby by thin...

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

IU with a win in a classic vs. Kansas to open the season last night. We just have so many weapons. OG led the team early with 10 points in the 1st 8 minutes or so. Then Bryant dominated the middle of the game, where he scored most of his 19. Then Blackmon put up 22 in the 2nd half and OT in case th...

This thread is for those that didn't get to witness this

I've avoided opening this thread because I knew it would make me sad, but as the exhilaration has finally started to level off, I've found myself thinking about my dad (and how much it sucks that he missed this) even more. He died in '97 at age 53--super young, but still the longest lived male in hi...

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

I generally like Bilas, but his excuse-making for the officiating was getting bad tonight. No, Jay, the player doesn't need to know how to play with 4 fouls by not chasing somebody around a screen on the chance they flail their arms in the air like a 4 year old when a bee flies by. Yeah, he was bad...

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

College basketball is unwatchable so far this season because of the officiating. Both games I've watched (KU loss to Indiana, KU win vs Duke) have been riddled with whistles, not to mention officials simply not knowing the rules. Who wants to watch both teams' best players riding pine with two fouls...
