Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

I would have rather not seen Freeland. But such is life. TAS I didn't watch the 2nd game today, so I was wondering if they announced Freeland for tomorrow. ? My reason for asking is it looks like he would pitch a day early if I'm looking at his last start right. Either way win or go home! I assume ...

Re: Wessler out at PJ Star

Only other thing that would kill it would be if everyone responsible for its maintenance were let go, and no one wanted ...

Re: The USA is A Okay since Kaepernick needs to get paid

And as always, if people on both sides are tired of the behavior of the other side, just boycott. First year for me trying a full embargo on football. Had more than enough with player health concerns and domestic violence and the league's handling of DV and corruption in coaching. The anthem stuff p...

Re: The USA is A Okay since Kaepernick needs to get paid

As always the truth is in the middle.

Kaep got offers, but got lowballed in all of them. Several teams just trying to give him a token backup contract when he deserved more. He walked instead of compromising.

Re: NCAA replacing RPI with NET

See, people are thinking team selection with NET. I'm thinking team seeding. I think selection will mostly go unchanged, with maybe one or two differences. Of course, the big key is whether that swings the mid-majors' way, or swings the P6 way. 2 less mid majors or 2 more mid majors is a huge differ...

Re: NCAA replacing RPI with NET

My favorite part of this is the fact the NCAA just tool(k) a giant dump on the front lawn of CUSA and the Fun Belt. Immediately, their genius plan is wrecked. Maybe it's redundant, but it's really the P5 taking the dump, no? It's not at all surprising that for every move mids make to try to get bac...

What defines the difference in a quality win vs not-quality win? Same with losses? Seems like a human element there.
Nah, this can be formula-driven. The rankings would have some form of circular logic though.

You may be right - but if 26 wins, a single-digit losses,a likely top 3 finish, and a title game appearance in a top 10 (likely top 6-7) league doesn’t get you NCAA consideration let alone NIT consideration...it ain’t the schedule that’s broken.

You have sound methodology in targeting top teams from other good mid-major conferences. I agree with that strategy. But you targeted the Horizon leaders and Southland leaders.
