Yup. That's one of the reasons I brought up the twos record quirk. We swept them in Minnesota but have struggled in Cleveland the last two seasons.

I almost wish the games were in Minneapolis. The Indians and Twins are the only two teams in the AL who have better road records than they do home records. While I do think the Tribe should win the series, it's strange how much they have struggled at the Jake.

EDIT: The Astros are also better on the road than they are at home. Though unlike the Indians and Twins, Houston has a winning record both home and away.

M!chigan is easily the most difficult road game of the year. I expect the skunk weasels to give UFM & Co. a very hard time. Though I do see Nebraska and Iowa being trap games. Indiana and Rutgers will be maulings.

Beat me to it. I was wondering why Hicks didn't make the list. He placed second in the Heisman voting for 1973; better than the fourth place Pace got in 1996.

Not every subject is an easy one to discuss. Luckily, most of the 11W populous is filled with good people who know how to have a civil discourse. The bad apples always fall by the wayside; the voting system ensures we can disagree without blowing the site up.

I support 11W putting out stories like this and hope we can continue having meaningful discussions.

Even if the Cavs stand pat, they are still one of the best teams in basketball. Short of the Celtics pulling off some blockbuster trade, Cleveland is still going to be the favorite in the east.

There could be a few things messing with Frankie...

1. He's putting too much emphasis on the long ball as opposed to putting the ball in play.
2. The pressure of performing for a big pay day after turning down the Tribes off-season offer is getting to him.
3. Both 1 & 2.

I wonder if Woody would approve.

I doubt Woody would approve of spending silly amounts of money for a football team to take a vacation to Europe. If they want to learn about Normandy and WWII, M!chigan has plenty of libraries available for free.

OSU should get more than Purdue

This is why the Big XII is teetering on the edge of oblivion. Nebraska, Colorado, and aTm were sick of being in the Longhorn conference.

People say a lot of things. Doesn't mean it's going to happen. If Indiana is sure George won't re-sign, I would imagine they're doing everything they can to get a return for him now.
