Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2020

I come from a large family and our house was the neighborhood house where kids hung out all the time. My mother was completely indulgent and tolerated everybody. It was a different world and I remember it fondly. Following the 1964 season, truly an impressive August -September comeback for the redbi...

Re: Corona Virus Lighter Side Of Things Thread

Among the retro greats I've seen, glimpsed, really, in the past week as networks struggle to adjust: the 82-83 Sixers with Dr J, Moses and DD; the illinois comeback win vs AZ in the Rosemont horizon and the cubs Phillies famous slugfest won by the phils, I think 23-22. My brother told me that WGN la...

Re: B1G Bowls Thread

Nice to see two big ten wins and real nice to see the Hawkeyes dominate. Lord knows I spent many a disconsolate new year watching USC whip the big ten champ, usually Ohio state or Michigan. If that USC team beat Oregon, I'm now liking the Badgers chances in the rose bowl. the big boy from Alton espe...

Re: Adolph Rupp - Freeport Pretzels

Very interesting and thank you. I didn't know anything about Rupp other than his reputation as a racist. I did not see the movie about that '66 team, but typically Hollywood will take creative license and embellish reality a bit. No doubt though that that was a time of social upheaval and that was a...

Re: B1G Bowls Thread

I hope minny gives auburn more of a game than Purdue did last year. Honestly I don't see any lead pipe cinches in there. All tough games. Heck even Tennessee seems to have toughened up. I'll take Ohio state, Penn state and Indiana. The rest losses for the big ten, though Iowa may surprise. Okay I'll...

Re: The best of the SEC officials

What is the point of putting time back on the clock if it doesn't allow for a snap? I realize that at this point it is rather like asking how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, because we can dissect this seven ways from Sunday and still not agree, but what foolishness it would be to put a ...

the Egg Bowl: most entertaining. Part of me is outraged at the dog pee hijinks, and part of me thinks it's pretty doggone funny.

Miami joins Arkansas on the misery list. Getting handled by Florida Atlantic isn't what was envisioned by jettisoning mark richt and can't be good for in-state recruiting. Their glory days are in the rear view mirror. I can't believe that both they and Florida state are on life support. Back in the ...

They can score on anybody, as they are one of the best programs, if not THE best program in Illinois, and I feel quite the opposite. I hope they go all the way and add yet more hardware to the school trophy case.
