It's like the legendary Bo Schembechler once said : "Those who get fired will run a toy store chain."

I'm assuming no one told Toys-R-Us to avoid the Noid...

When you think about it, that's a natural progression: Domino's Pizza,  Michigan Athletics, Toys R Us...

I mean they all involve games, right?

Man, I loved Bernie Kosar. The guy was my hero growing up and I wrote him so many letters and he (or his people) always responded and sent autographed pics and Browns stickers and other stuff back to me. And I met him once and he was gracious and let me take pictures with him and he talked to me about school and me playing football and etc.

Anyway, I loved the guy, but he's not all there these days. If you ask him, he'll deny the alcoholism stuff and say he has neurological issues from his playing days and suffering undiagnosed concussions. But yeah, whatever it is, it's sad for me to think about cause he meant so much to me growing up.

What about scheduling? This whole  "WE DON'T EXIST!". "Sorry, just kidding, WE DO EXIST!" business has to have completely screwed up scheduling for them and their conference.

Comment 01 Jun 2015

This story has always seemed so bizarre to me. They said they were losing money and it didn't make sense for them financially to have a football program. Then there was an investigative report that found out that some of the reasons given for ending the program were bogus and that the program actually did make a profit (a small one, especially compared to bigger schools). But they weren't going in the hole like they claimed. Such a strange story.

Yeah, I'm wondering if Love is seeing the success Cleveland is having without him and thinking he doesn't fit in there. 

And to be honest, I don't know what next year will look like. Will Varejao be healthy? Will Cleveland re-sign Mozgov? Will they give Thompson the big contract he deserves? Does Love come back to the Cavs? 

Comment 28 May 2015

The difference is that Cleveland has LeBron. And while Kyrie is a star and a point guard, LeBron averages more points and assists than Kyrie.

Clarifying Question on OP:  Are you just making a statement here or did you want us to comment about the shows you listed or did you want us to list the shows we stopped or never started watching?

Comment 25 May 2015

I don't know what happened with the Dean situation, but I do know this: doctors disagree with one another all the time. 

Comment 25 May 2015

Millen must have incriminating information on higher-ups at every major sports network in America.

How else does that guy manage to continue to find gainful employment in broadcasting?

Comment 25 May 2015

In no way do I believe Dellavedova is a dirty player. But yeah, as its been said, he is a "scrappy", "annoying", "pesky", "high energy", player (fill in whatever other words you want that describe a guy with less talent who hustles and goes 100 mph every play). He's gonna box you out, even if you're twice his size. He's gonna chase down every loose ball. He's gonna run into you. And he is gonna frustrate the crap out of you. That's his game. And he's the type of player you want on your team but hate to play against.

Hawks players and commentators even said, guys are not used to and don't like it when a guy like Delly plays balls to the wall on every play. They view it as reckless. They think it's against some sort of 'bro code'. They hate guys like that.

Regardless, Horford can't lose his cool like that. Your team is down 0-2. You have to be smarter than that.

I haven't seen the whole schedule yet, but Ohio State will actually play at least 3 decent teams in the non-conference this year. 

Memphis, Virginia, and Kentucky.

Comment 21 May 2015

OSU signed a 3 year deal last season to be part of the "CBS Sports Classic" series with North Carolina, Kentucky, and UCLA. All the games will be at neutral sites. Last year's games were in Chicago. This year's are in Brooklyn. Next year's are in Las Vegas.

Last year OSU played UNC. This year they play UK. And next year they'll play UCLA.

Alabama fans are pretty bad, but the way I see it, they have a reason to be proud of their team. The Tide are actually good and have won something recently. 

But with Tennessee fans, the way they act, you'd think they'd won the last 10 national titles. Even though they haven't been relevant in years, they believe they are. And they're one of the worst offenders when it comes to 'conference solidarity'. When Florida, LSU, Alabama, and Auburn won titles, UT fans acted like they had won it. It's completely nauseating...

Comment 21 May 2015

This is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen in my life. And Tennessee fans are going crazy about this like this means Butch Jones is the greatest. 

Settle down Volunteers, Butch Jones is from Michigan. Before he became your coach, he probably rocked out to Skynyrd with his windows down. 

He might wanna work a little harder on actually beating Alabama than making such a fuss about a stupid song...
