Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

Wendell Carter Jr. is having likely season-ending surgery on a thumb injury, because when you're the Bulls, not even the tiniest ray of hope can go unextinguished.

I would disagree it's not very good, it's consistently very funny. I will grant that it hasn't made me care about its characters the way The Office did. That could just be because I'm older now, though.

Re: The Ricketts family kind of sucks

its just wild to me that people have been staring at this offseason for HALF A DECADE knowing that Harper and Machado were going to likely both be available. 12 months ago people were talking 300-400 million for each, but now the offseason is here and you may be able to get them for 200 million.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

apparently the 7 year deal the white sox offered manny was 7/175. they might as well just do the strike now and get it over with https://twitter.com/ginnysearle/status/1085589803905630208 It's such a horsefeathering travesty. Machado might be worth that much (via WAR, anyway) in 3 years, let alone 7.

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

If you're a smart school, you'll hire a Saban understudy. They learn how to cheat very, very well under Saban and then implement that in other places. In the past 8 years since Dabo became head coach, Clemson has landed 22 five-star players. In the previous 8 years they landed 2. Rivals 2019 recrui...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

Andy, how does ND stack up against Clemson? For whatever reason I’ve not seen a snap of Irish football this year. I’ve seen some prognosticators claiming that Clemson aren’t what they have been in years past. It's interesting, because neither team has faced an opponent that could really threaten th...

Re: NFL week 15

Unless Carolina can say with 150% certainty that this version of Cam is completely the result of a repairable shoulder injury, it's probably time to think hard about who the next QB is going to be. He's 30, so he's not gonna be getting any better.

Teams should play at least 10 P5 games or expect to be penalized. Not to OMC this and make it all about my team but Northwestern played 11 Power 5 (+ND) teams in the regular season this year and has played at least 10 every season since 2012 (also played 11 that year).
