Re: Double blow for Brew Crew?

The Cubs would be a fool not to go after Prince now. This division is wide open and as bad as the Cubs were last year, they could be in the mix for 2012 with a legitimate 1B.

BU player in streetclothes

I noticed at the last home game, there was a player standing on the court during warmups between Wells and Egolf. Appeared to be a guard about 6 feet tall. He also sat on the bench during the game. Any idea as to who he was?

Re: Post-NBA lockout news

Just shows that David Stern is still in charge. Word leaked today that it was possible the Chris Paul trade was only the first for Lakers. Dwight Howard was going to be lured to warm and sunny LA, putting together another Miami Heart scenario. Stern didn't want that, so he nixed the deal.

Re: "Three in One" out at Illinois?

And the NCAA continues to allow the Seminole as mascot at Florida State, and the Indian chop. How interesting that they continue to pick on the Illini. Have a good friend who is full blood Indian and a sent her kids to college in C/U. No objections from her ever.

Re: Doug Gottlieb on Maniscalco and BU

The only way to compare Sam on these two teams is that both teams are and were better when he was on the court. When he is in the bench, players forget their role. It was evident last year and if you look at when he is on the bench for the Illini, Paul starts playing street ball and Abrams becomes t...

Re: Is the Stampede ending? SMU's Jones to ASU

Is this the best ASU can do? There must be some great defensive cooordinator in the SEC that could take over this program. I can name a few! Anyone notice that a great defense does win games?

Re: RPI for Valley teams

Illinois State is dragging the MVC down once again, due to it's reluctance to schedule anyone. Even their new AD can't get it right. And their fan base shows. Another 3500 attended the last home game. Oh yeah, they will get their sellout when BU comes to town. Then they can wear their Buck Fradley t...

Re: Tim McCarver wins Frick Award

I guess that if Vin Scully voted for him, he must have thought that he merited this. Not a real fan of McCarver's style, but nice to see his peers giving him the honor and not a bunch of rumdums! I don't always have to agree. Now if they would have given this to Joe Morgan, then I would have vomited!

Re: Mass. HS team loses state title on TD celebration penalty

A classic call by an official who thinks that the game should not be decided on the field, but by his ego. I truly believe that he was looking for something to call.

Everyone is comparing his salary to Ryan Howard, who makes $25 million per year and Texeria, who makes about the same. Still don't believe it's the money or the status. The NL will go with the DH within 5 years after realignment. He already has deferrred money though 2030. While I think that this mo...

Re: Kurt Busch leaving Penske Racing

That has seemed to backfire. It's the only sport that I know of that changes it's rules week after week. ...

The NFL needs to get this ridiculous rule right! The Bears was called for the horse collar penalty late in the 2nd quarter against the Raiders. Any idiot could see that Adams clearly grabbed the jersey and they didn't need to be wearing stripes!

Re: Bradley vs. North Dakota

I thought that JE at times tried to do too much. There were a couple out of control drives to the lane and another charge like the one versus SEMO. He needs to be able to knock down that wide open three to keep the defense honest. A very good role player, but needs to play within himself.
