That would be correct.  Its the No Fun League's way of punishing the home team for not selling out the stadium.  How dare you not give Roger more money!

Cincinnati CBS showed us the Raiders and Chargers, which makes no sense. 

Wonder if it was subject to blackout.....saw alot of empty nosebleed seats.

True on Illinois, but i'm guessing Sparty thought Purderp was a bye as well.

I would say root for MSU, but over the next 2 months, so much will happen that you'll say to yourself, "I guess it didn't really matter who I rooted for."  

Sometimes you root for something to happen, it goes in your favor, and then you lose the final home game of the year to a sub .500 team for a chance to go to the title game - http://espn.go.com/ncf/recap?id=273350277

If Bert was still at Wisconsin, a part of me would be enjoying this embarrassing display of football.  

But this is just sad.  

Comment 06 Sep 2014

It's understandable.  Unless it's the red river rivalry, I usually don't expect ABC to have a noon game.

+1 for your point about Auburn

-1 for your use of commas

Comment 05 Sep 2014

Yeah, but not when those high quality opponents have something very annoying in common.

Comment 05 Sep 2014

Not gonna lie, I think I'd rather have Michigan's list of winless.  Quite a few on OSU's list are difficult to come to terms with.

Comment 05 Sep 2014

I second this request.  Random stats like this probably need some comparables.  Maybe make a list of the top 10 winningest schools?

Comment 05 Sep 2014

Weird scores also happen when teams don't convert the 2-pt conversion.

How often do you see 16 pts like the Packers last night?

Edit: I just attempted to fact check myself by looking at the 2013 NFL season.  A team getting 16 pts happens about once a week.  Nice try Charles.

A couple thoughts watching PSU / UCF...

Bill Belton is one of those players that seem like they've been there for 10 years. 

Kenny Mayne is the best thing to come out of ESPN.....by a mile.

How to ruin a mock fantasy draft

This had me laughin out loud early in the morning.  Thanks for that WMD.

There is no such thing as an awful beer.  Just  beer that doesn't taste as good as other beer.

The "free site/go somewhere else" argument is fine, but I think there's always room for suggestions for the staff.

No sense in becoming complacent with the content, even if it's free.

TIL: There is something called a Marlins Charlie Hough Good Guy Award, and D-Train snagged it in 2006.  

Edit Add: You could also argue that he was a decent offensive weapon too.  Career numbers include .244 AVG, .287 OBP, 9 HR.  Definitely nothing to sneeze at.  And it was a competitive advantage being in the NL, where managers wouldn't have to take him out later in the game to sub in a better hitter.
