That would be an awfully quick switch from Gaffigan, who just started a month ago. Would be pretty cool to see what DAG does with it, though.

Re: College Football 2016

I love Harbaugh and think he's hilarious, which makes it even more infuriating that his previous employers were a bunch of morons and he fell right into the lap of the team I dislike most

Re: Bulls 2015-16 Regular Season Thread 2.0

I guess that's one way to describe losing to a gimpy short handed Cleveland team in the second round. Never said last year's Bulls were great, but that 'gimpy short-handed Cleveland team' destroyed Atlanta in the ECF, so it's not a huge leap for me that the Bulls could've beaten them.

Most of this team was the same group that would've probably made the Finals last year if not for a Game 4 meltdown against Cleveland. Nice job, GarPax.

Everytime I drive by the Sports Authority off Ontario St I wonder how that chain is still in business.

Went there once with friends. I think we ended up buying a couple of things between us but their selection was definitely not good.

Re: It sucks

My grandfather got dementia in his mid to late 80s, I think, and was more or less an invalid infant by the time he passed away at 92. It was a little depressing to see, but he lived a great long life and it made it a little easier to celebrate his life rather than mourn when he died. Sorry, CubinNY ...

ND went from slightly better than 50/50 to make the tournament (my opinion) to tied for most wins in ACC play in just under a week. Pretty good stretch.

It has to be they haven't planned out their games yet

Pretty sure they go month-by-month with those decisions. Maybe even bi-weekly.

Re: TV Settlement

Duh, yeah. I was mixing up my trains of thought. But with up to 2-3 people using streaming services at a given time, it strains our bandwidth, too. For example, if I'm watching MLB.tv, the wife is watching Netflix and my daughter is streaming something, we run into issues. A lot of people don't hav...

Re: Bulls 2015-16 Regular Season Thread 2.0

The silver lining is that since Hoiberg is incompetent, maybe the Bulls can fall out of the playoffs and get a lottery ball. If you're going to willfully downgrade your coach without even the slightest major personnel change, you might as well benefit that way.

- A key drop by Ginn (which, in a lovely turn of events, directly led to an INT) that's just an inevitability that should be incorporated into their gameplan Agreed, I knew he would probably drop one - I was just hoping it wouldn't be a big one.

Damn, I'm sorta glad I missed this game. Hearing you guys talk it sounds like it was awful. Did Cam really bail on the postgame press conference? Yes, he did, and as usual much too much is being made out of it. It wasn't a good look, but I'm sure he felt 100 times worse than I did, and if I'd had t...

It shouldn't be a surprise given Lester and Heyward especially, but to see us so far ahead in the free agent listing is not something I expected.

Also, 4.7 WAR higher than anyone else in baseball, so there's that
