Re: Ongoing 2019-20 Premier League Thread

Also, Merseyside Derby in the FA Cup! We also had the Third Round Proper FA Cup Draw this week, when Premier League and Championship sides enter (to be played January 4-6, pairings involving PL teams bolded , while teams outside the first division have their level in parentheses): Leicester City vs....

Re: 2020 Paradise Jam

Am I the only one a little disappointed in this field? It seems a little underwhelming to me. I'll admit I had an initial reaction, despite my love of all things Bona :lol: But once you get past the "wow" name factor of this year's field with Cinci and Nevada. . .it had Bowling Green, Western Kentu...

Re: Game Introduction

I don't understand how the logistics are so difficult. Tell me about it. I similarly don't understand the parking gripes. I get the complaints, but they insist on being stubborn and fixed to a solution they do not have to accept. The complainers are completely oblivious to and simply ignore the sol...

Re: Game Introduction

Two things can be true. . .I might be the only one, but I think Peoria/Bradley could actually sustain 11K and even fill a 15-17.5K arena with sustained, relevant winning at a national level. But I also am one of the biggest proponents of playing the SEMO's, Chicago State's, and the like at RC. The h...

Re: The Valley

Some really bad league games this weekend. Including 5 games against .500 or worse lower competition, 1 team playing a 0-7 team, and then add another past those 5 playing a D2 team. Only Indiana State and Valpo play tough opponents all weekend. (Wright St, CMU) Thankfully next week UNI goes to Colo...

Re: 2020 Paradise Jam

Definitely a good start to the field. . .get another "name" program in there, and another quality mid, then it's a home run.

Aggies are 3-6, but they beat a decent Nicholls team (beat Pitt, took Illinois to OT, and was competitive against LSU and Rhode Island) and defeated Longwood last night, so they are 2-2 over their last 4. Their season-high scoring output is 66. You always do a great job trying to convince people th...

Re: Game Introduction

I never thought you weren't telling the truth. I just don't know how anyone would feel shamed or that anybody attending a college basketball game would be annoyed by your active participation. Is it possible you are purposely poking the bears, as ulterior motive. :td If so, if its not over the top,...

This doesn't really have to do with the present direction of this thread, but I just received an email from Portillo's declaring "Excite-ment is in the Air!"

That's some heavy stuff there.

Yet Jubby suggests he will be relegated to eating dip and do...

But they won't do that. Because the money says idiotic things like "I'll never step foot in the RC". Bruh.....GOOD! Who wants you in there??? I don't.

Re: Bradley @ Memphis

Not me, I expect to go 5-0. Kansas St. is better then any of those 5 teams plus we get 4 of them at home so yes I see us winning all 5 as we have not played our best basketball yet and things are going to get much better. Tell that to the Evansville fans. Who might be on the verge of losing to West...

Re: Bradley @ Memphis

Some of you guys really crack me up. . .you get mad because you assumed St. Joseph's would be a cake walk easy road win, and then act like going 5-0 against Georgia Southern, NC A&T, Maryville, (road) Miami OH, and Toledo is just crazy talk.

Re: Opponents thread

One of my favorite scenarios is from baseball. . .the Dazzy Vance of the Brooklyn Dodgers used to wear long white sleeves under his uniform so that his rotation would blend in with all the whites being laundered and hung from the tenements behind Ebbets Field.

I think Henry is going through growing pains a bit. . .he has the confidence now to know he can mix it up in the middle. But he's still going to encounter guys that dominate him-the important thing for him is to know he'll get beat sometimes, but not let that affect his approach to the challenge. Ev...

Re: Bradley @ Memphis

I never considered Darrell a good shooter-a streaky shooter, yes, but a scorer and volume shooter.

He has been one of the 2 worst shooters on the roster 2 seasons, and one of the 5 worst the other.

Re: Bradley @ Memphis

When Memphis and Ole Miss played about a week ago, Memphis was up 7 at half, pushed it to 16 in the first 9 minutes of the second half, and blew it all over the final 11 minutes and Ole Miss got it down to a possession.
