Re: I don't have a warm, fuzzy feeling anymore!!

UT Vols & I have a $100 bet. He said Illinois would win 6 games and go to a bowl game. To which I told him he was bat $hit crazy. Well, after less than stellar performances by Nebraska, Minnesota & Purdue, I think I may be in trouble. With Nebraska & Rutgers being home games, well ....... :?: :?: :...

Fire Lovie!!!!! Oh wait..... maybe not then I guess
If they lose to Purdue by 30+ next week, that will say more than today's victory.
Clearly not as impressive as the 2014 Cubit led Illini over post penalty Penn State. That Illinois team would have won by 20+!

Re: Zion injured again

He's too fat. Listed at 285, means he is likely even bigger. Will never achieve full potential if he doesn't fix his nutrition and gets in shape. Uh...have you seen Zion before? That ain't fat. That's muscle. He was officially weighed in at 272 at Team USA camp in 2018. He is now listed at 285 mean...

Re: LeBron James

The NBA isn’t bending over backward to appease China. Silver flew to China, begged to meet the Chinese leaders, and apologized stating they were "extremey dissapointed" by Morey's "inappropriate" statement. Several prominent players have apologized including LeBron saying Morey wasn't "educated on ...

Re: LeBron James

No, he should be doing the opposite. I'd wager that Silver has begged everyone to shut up until he can get everyone on board with spurning China. No one wants to lose other people's money until they know everyone is on board. Except he did the opposite by stating Morey isn't informed on the issues....

Re: LeBron James

Just be honest. Say all the Chinese people you have met were great, and you won't criticize their government because it could cost you hundreds of mlilions of dollars. I would respect that much more than him in essence telling Morey to shut up and find dribblers. Since China has asked the NBA to fi...

Apparently the Cubs are not sold on Ross or Girardi, since they continue to give interviews from the trash pile. Angels had not problem in getting there guy. Probably the one Cubs should have kept.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2019

If the Cubs hire Ross and just shuffle around the front office job roles without hiring new talent, they are basically blaming Maddon for the failures over the last 2 seasons.

Re: Chicago Bears 2019

If the Bears were to sign Kaepernick I would have to become a Packers or Vikings fan. Seems like a pretty petty reason to change football allegiances. Just curious why do you seemingly want the Bears to sign a QB that hasn't played in 3 years? Protest baggage aside, Mitch is reported to be ready to...

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2019

A couple interesting items on the betting side. Heavy money coming in on the Cards for tonight's game. The one I found very interesting is this is the 5th time since 2008 a wild card team was favored in the Championship series. The other 4 lost, one being the Cubs in 2015 against the Mets. I had fo...

2014 Beckman led them over Penn State after they lost most of their players due to the Penn Rape scandal. He famously camped out in Penn State's parking lot trying to unsuccessfully recruit their players. Beckman was subsequently suspended / fired for abusing players. So not exactly a shining victo...

Re: Green Bay Packers 2019

I think that Denver at 2-4 is the only team with a losing record GB has played. Denver is a good defensive team and should actually be 3-3 except the Bears game. You could even make the argument the Bears are the worst team GB has played.

No bowl this year for Illinois, Lovie shouldn't be back. Hopefully he "retires", but fire if need be. At least the program is in better shape than when he started. However, If Illinois loses to Rutgers, he should be fired on the sideline before walking into the tunnel. I know people hated Beckman, ...

Re: Chicago Bears 2019

Kapernick off the street, cold without participating in organized football for 3 years is not better than the Bears current options. If he had several weeks in the system, practicing, film sessions, and throwing daily he might be better than the Bears other options. Heck Jay Cutler would be a better...
