Re: 2016 Bold Predictions Thread

The entire starting 9 players for the Cubs will be all-stars. They will score 22 runs in the 2 innings they all play together, and the NL will win 22-5 after Arrieta pitches two scoreless innings and Wainwright gives up 5 runs in 1/3 of an inning resulting in a blown out elbow that takes him out of ...

Re: NCAA Mock Tourney Selection 2016

Houston, Tulsa, AND Cincy all lost in the American quarters, so the chances of a bid thief is now high, as the only team left in the field with a chance to win the league is UConn. Davidson could still be a bid thief in the A-10, as they made the semis. Michigan could be a bid thief (or play their w...

Re: College Basketball 2015-16

No, the game literally ended on the Illinois rule. Refresh my memory? The under 2 minute replay rule came about because of the Illinois-Miami RD 2 NCAA game where a ball went off Miami but was called off Illinois in the last minute or so with Illinois trailing by like 5. Illinois was down 2 with un...
