Re: 19 / 20 MBB Recruiting

If only that NCAA tournament invitations were determined by pre-season bluster and press releases, we would be assured a trip to the sweet 16. Glad to hear about Sehic. If Daniels returns, the sky is the limit. We would actually have a chance for a .500 conference record. (Forgive the cynicism but I...

Old Guy With Get-Off-My-Lawn Complaint

First off, a brief explanation: I'm old (72). I'm increasingly grouchy about issues I would have viewed as trivial only a few years ago. I've lost my filter. I no longer have the ability to sit silently while someone engages in jackassery. Now I complain loudly and do so unapologetically. I don't kn...

Re: UCF Series

It would be hard to fire TJ if the team finishes above .500 in conference, has a player of the year AND a Freshman of the year candidate. With phenomenally talented hitters, pitching ERA is 2nd worst in history (behind 1990). What if in your business, you had a new product release that was one of t...

Interesting. Caleb Daniels hires James Dunleavy as his agent. James Dunleavy's other clients include Cam Reynolds and Mike Dunleavy Jr. (son of our recently departed coach). One could easily imagine several conspiratorial scenarios.

Recently, Colorado hired Mel Tucker, a new football coach, previously from the University of Georgia. Tucker had run a football program that had seen at least a half-dozen former players (including 2 NFLers) kill themselves. Others have severe post-concussion problems.

Wasn't this aimed at Mr. Alleva, implying that 'unlike the way things were done in the past'?

Just for fun- what is the actual odds you would give Tulane of beating ? If “Virtually no chance” is 1 % or 4+ touchdown underdogs i would make that wager. I think we have a 25-33% chance for an upset. If anyone wishes to offer 4-1 (you put up $100, I'll put up $25) just let me know. I may want sum...
