Re: Red - White game

I'm interested in the comment on attendance. Lower than expected? I was really wanting to be there, but had a previous commitment. I agree with one assessment that they should be better with TB back. Thanks for all of the updates and comments!

Re: Les and Hawkins reunite

"I have visions of a MVC championship". Have we heard that yet? Looks like we will get a dose of Aztec basketball whether we want it or not. Hopefully Geno can bring BU back to respectability this year, and we won't have to get continued comparisons from out west.

Re: Schwartz vs Harbaugh

Harbaugh took the blame, saying he shook Schwartz's hand a little to hard. Watched replay several times and thought Schwartz just didn't like losing at home. Just a sore loser! Like it or not,I like Harbaugh's competiveness. Everyone thought he was a fool for taking the 49er's job. The Bears could u...

Re: Themes from the first practice...

I like it, I like it! I met Shayok at one the intro events. Might be a freshmen, but sure is imposing! I always pleaded for wide bodies clogging the middle, similar to the ISU dual in the 80's. They dominated the league. Prosser and Shayok can fill that role. Now if we have a Levingston/Carr duo, I ...

Re: Theo to the Cubs a done deal?

I think this is all about the personnel that Theo wants to take with him. Not sure who has the upper hand. Boston has no desire to keep Theo now that this mess has been created, although their owners say they want him back. Boston blames Ricketts and the Cubs. It is now all a waiting game. The Cubs ...

Re: Illinois v Ohio St. predictions

I agree with Beanie. I just have a bad feeling about this game. Scheelhouse has thus far avoided the Juice Williams type mistakes. Plus the defense has come up big when they need to. Neither can afford making bad decisions today, or the Illini will be toast. I'm hoping that the dumb remarks reported...

Re: Could Theo really be heading to the Cubs?

Bud is still worried that Niger will embarrass them once more with another F bomb tirade. It is really interesting that the Brewers chose not to play him when he is much better than Kotsay. On Epstein, I still think that after sigining him as their GM, the Cub fans will need to be patient. Even with...

I sure hope that you are correct. Hopefully hype and the bandwagoners will only last the 1st couple series for the Lions. I'm just hoping that Calvin Johnson forgets what happened last year and doesn't go crazy on us!

Re: Rays owner warns MLB will "vaporize" team

If you notice, Spring Training Teams are moving from Florida. Some Florida people that I talked to don't like the weather conditions, cold and windy in March. More teams and fans moving west can't help the economy and fan base.

Albert already has millions in deferred money, so he is set after he retires. I can't see money being the issue and I think he stays in St. Louis.

Didn't I hear or read where Tito and Theo are in a rock together? Chicago was trying to promote that since Brenley/Kasper also are in a rock band. Anyone else hear that?Crazier things have happened!

Re: Down to two weeks

Just win at home! The rest of the win/losses will take care of themselves. The makeup of this team, at least on paper, appears to be stronger with a deeper bench. At least a bench that will get some minutes. I'm more optimistic this season than the last several.

Re: Could Theo really be heading to the Cubs?

If the Tito/Theo thing is a deal, then the Cubs will still be bad. Ricketts will not pay the money that they will ask, then spend money on the free agent market. He is still trying to get money from the State for improvements.

Re: Could Theo really be heading to the Cubs?

I think that Friedman always was and still is their first choice. Problem is that now that Tampa Bay is in the playoffs, he is off limits until they are eliminated. In addition, his stock is now a lot higher. The Cubs just won't pay the money Epstein would demand, same for Francona.

Re: 2011 MLB Playoffs

squirrel, you are absolutely correct. An additional one game wild card playoff, that is what Selig wants, is just a horrible idea. He must have consulted the IHSA when he came up with this proposed change.

Most good teams would not have lost focus after the Bartman incident. Prior and Gonzalez both lost composure and that was the game. Remember, they had game 7 and Kerry Woods and couldn't even pull it out. The Cubs will always blame the Billy Goat, the black cat or whatever. This time we blamed Bartm...
