will be interesting to see where he goes. LSU maybe?


I'm sure IU hopes he goes somewhere. I think the $4 million buyout is reduced significantly if he takes another job.

Pretty sure the buyout is 4 million until July 1st.

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

IU really bungled that. I assume they were trying to protect Crean, but I think it is too late. I think he is on his way out one way or the other. if he was going to get canned, why is IU waiting? I don't think it's going to happen this year. There just seems to be quite a bit of smoke surrounding ...

Re: Top 108 Moments for the 2016 Cubs (Now at #31)

This season, I attended the game either before or after 1) Jake Arrieta's no hitter and 2) Kris Bryant's 5-5 game with 3 HR and 2 doubles. Also in the past, I've just missed Kyle Farnsworth destroying Paul Wilson, Starlin Castro's debut, and even the game where the Peoria Chiefs faced the Dayton Dr...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

In watching the postseason home run video it just hit me how similar Baez Game 7 homerun was to his Futures Game homer. While those were some dark days at the major league level, it was fun to follow the minor league system and then get a glimpse of it in the Futures Game. You knew things would get ...

Obviously not an automatic physical. I'll save the "if" scenarios until he passes it.

Anybody been to St. Louis for a game lately? Just found out I will be in St. Louis in mid-April for a conference. The Cardinals are hosting the Pirates that week. I feel like my love of baseball will overtake my distaste for the BFIB,so I will probably catch a game. Besides, not like I'll have many ...

Re: 2017 Cubs Convention - Now with less old people bitching at the FO (probably)

Is it wrong of me that I have absolutely no desire to attend this thing? About 10 years ago my mom bought me a pass. My wife and I went up for the weekend and each day I spent a few hours there (she didn't have a pass, she spent her time on Mich. Ave). I pretty much hated it. Lots of people, boring ...

Re: Cubs offseason thread

As for Jay, the more I look into it I think he has potential to be a very productive piece. Before his injury last year in late June, he was slashing 296/345/407 for San Diego. His extra base hit ability is almost entirely built on doubles, so there is going to be a power drop off between him and Fo...

Re: Cubs cancelled my season tickets - anyone else?

This whole discussion has prompted me to review my tickets from last year. I sold in the neighborhood of 60 games by my quick math. I flew in 3 different times in the regular season for a weekend. These were in the summer and the higher priced/tiered games. The others were used by my brother in law ...

Besides, I don't think a report of "Bruno" from NSBB will produce much of a result in the season ticket database.

Re: Cubs cancelled my season tickets - anyone else?

It helps that I have a brother in law in Chicago as well. He takes a decent amount of games each year. When I have to personally sell them on my own it is through Stubhub. I do find it odd that if the Cubs were to do this they wouldn't give an explanation. I'd be on the phone with my rep immediately.

Re: Cubs cancelled my season tickets - anyone else?

I sell most of mine since I live 5 hours away, mostly through StubHub. I probably made it to about 6 regular season games (3 trips) and made it to 4 home playoff games.

This is a bit concerning. The sales last year were nice, but I'm still in the hole from where I started 6 years ago.
