Re: College Basketball 2017-2018

Re: College Basketball 2017-2018

Illinois is more fun to watch so far, but it's been 4 games against varying C and D level competition, so 4 wins was the bare expected performance. Concerningly, the only game they looked better than advertised was against Southern, letting UTM back into thw game in the last 10 minutes, struggling t...

Personally, I'd be all for aligning the MLS calendar with other club soccer calendars, but the stadium infrastructure in the northern cities isn't there at this point.

https://twitter.com/GrantWahl/status/925368322341900288 So this version of the playoffs assumes the home games will all be in Texas, southern California, or Florida.

If you include Baez in that group(even though his odds of getting dealt are near nil), then it's him. After that, it's probably very situational depending on a team's evaluation and their needs. There...

Also, Russell was worth fewer WAR because he missed like 6 weeks with injury, so he had less time to accumulate it. Numbnuts.
