  • SPORTS MOMENT: In the park grand slam HR in the 7th inning to advance to the championship of the Dublin, Ohio Tuesday night Co-Rec Softball League (2004).

    Oh, you mean best "actual" sports moment? Storming the field after Will Allen's interception on the end line with 0:01 remaining on the clock to beat Michigan and advance to the National Championship (November 23, 2002). Best moment ever.

I missed the whole first quarter, and started watching with about 8 minutes remaining in the second... It was 6-3 when I turned the tv on so I feel very little offensive brilliance could have occurred, but perhaps I am wrong.

That said, I've seen a couple decent runs by Warren Ball, and about one million deep balls thrown for incompletions. Zero brilliance.

True. One wonders how crisp Brax will look as a passer though in the fall. Can't have him running all the time this year with no Kenny G magic coming off the bench when Brax gets knocked out again.

My solution(s): a.) Reduce the amount of rules and control exerted by the NCAA in general; b.) Allow universities to cover the full cost of education, plus provide a much more substantial stipend (as Gene Smith recommends); c.) NFL (and NBA) should eliminate the rules that disallow immediate entry into their leagues. (There absolutely should be an NFL farm league of sorts.)

I'm not even really saying the NFL should foot the bill for a "D-League" but they would be the ones with the best chance of making it a viable business I'd guess.

I'm just saying the door should be open for all kids good enough to play professional ball immediately if they choose. Some kids just aren't cut out to play school - so why force the issue?

To mandate that a kid must play college ball for one or two years (or functionally not be able to play at all) while denying them an opportunity to earn a living in the sport is kind of un-American, isn't it?

If there was a D-League professional football team here in Columbus I'd go check them out.

Wow. A significant number of the denizens of 11W are becoming huge dicks.

Here's one fan wishing Amedeo the best. He seemed to me to be the only guy (aside from AC) who has personality and played with emotion. Much of the year we had a bunch of robots out there.

Wow. Less than 10% of 11W'ers experience joy on most Sundays during football season.
