i think this is going to be a really competitive season with the top 6-7 teams.Every squad in the top 7 has talent, but they all have concerns as well.

City: CB depth once Kompany inevitably gets hurts or Stones sucks. I still have them winning the league though

Spurs: depth behind Kane, Eriksen and Alli

United: if they click they can do some damage, but i just don't think they are quite there yet

Chelsea: good squad, but didn;t bolster their roster for the added UCL tourney

Arsenal: they may actually benefit from sitting out the UCL this year, but no doubt they'll have 2-3 draws versus easy opponents that will crush their top 4 hopes. Side note, i'm an arsenal fan which is actually more painful than watching my Browns shit the bed week in and week out. Pray for me

Liverpool: if they sell Coutinho that will crush them. Fun, attacking side to watch but they needed to add Van Dijk and someone like Bertrand to that defense in the worst way. over-under on how many games Sturridge misses due to injury? 

Everton: how will they score without Lukaku? if they can get Siggy that would be huge for them. their goal should be to get to UEL. 

On a side note, have you guys seen how much Guardiola has spent in transfers with his last 3 teams? almost $1.1 BILLION. heck even i can be a decent coach if you just buy the top players each year.

wow that's really cool 419er. You seem to be pretty good at that stuff, i remember you had a few tshirt ideas last year that were really cool.

So how does that work with eligibility? If he signed with OSU but never enrolled, would he still have to sit out a year for his transfer to Toledo? I'd assume he has to sit out a year for the transfer to Rutgers, but would that be for the same academic year? or does he now have to sit out 2 years? I really hope whatever the hell i just typed makes sense! haha.

With Monaco's history of developing players and selling them off to make ends meet, i can see this transfer happening this summer. I know they've publicly said they are taking a new approach this season, but with all the players that they have sold off and with this crazy offer reportedly being made, i don;t see how they can compete into the final 16 of the UCL next year. In addition to this, it's reported that Benzema will be sold as well, so he can probably get close to $50M, so that combined with Morata and Danillo really makes this transfer a net loss of about $30-40M. plus Asensio reportedly wants out so it may end up being an addition of Mbappe for Morata, Danilo, Benzema and Asensio. that;s a trade RM will do every day. It'll just be interesting to see if Mbappe plays as the striker or if they rotate him and Ronaldo around during the game.

I don;t follow college basketball all that much, but it seems like Coach Holtmann is a guy who thrives off of taking the 3 star type of players and putting them into a system that is successful. I actually think he will end up doing some great things in Columbus in the next few years. it'll be nice to see how things turn around 

Comment 07 Jul 2017

This is awesome @Drank1933. I actually have this game circled on the calendar as my first Buckeye road game. We just bought a house and had to do a full remodel, so as long as i can make it through this month unscathed we'll be heading out to Iowa as well. 

A buddy of mine is emailing me some info from their trip to Iowa City a few years back, so i'll post it once i get it.

It's amazing how far the Knicks have fallen since the days of Ewing, Oakley, Starks, etc. I know MSG still has that allure of being the "mecca" of basketball, but that's slowly going away with all these terrible seasons. With the current state of the NBA, i thin Jackson needs to go. The league is slowly turning into a 6 team league with a few loaded squads and then everyone else. If the Knicks don't want to get left behind, they need to get that ship moving asap. 

Comment 25 Jun 2017

For some reason I can see him at BC or at Florida. Not sure why, I just see him at one of those schools. Either way, look for the offense at his next school to get crazy. 

Imagine if he went from a Nike school to Maryland and Under Armour? Haha

Comment 22 Jun 2017

I'm pretty sure that if Gilbert traded Lebron, since he is basically the acting GM, his head would end up on a stake outside of the Q. Also, there's no way Chauncey Billups or any other GM comes to Cleveland knowing that they are trading Lebron. In the NBA it's much more difficult to make trades than MLB, so teams can't always just wipe the slate clean in the offseason. What Griffin did with this roster and the salary cap was very impressive and will be tough to beat. Even if the roster stayed as-is, we are still getting to the ECF versus Boston next year and i still like our chances as long as #23 is in wine and gold. 

On a side note, if Lebron does leave as a free agent down the road, Dan Gilbert would forever be known as the first owner to lose the best player in the league to free agency....TWICE!! 

Comment 19 Jun 2017

I can't see how this trade would ever be accepted by NO or Indiana, but for the sake of the conversation, could the Cavs even do this being so far over the cap? There was someone on this site in the past that was pretty knowledgeable on the NBA cap and the Cavs were going to have a hard time making moves last season and this year because of all the salary cap issues. 

Comment 15 Jun 2017

From the day he was drafted i always had this feeling he would end up in New England as a back-up to Brady and then eventually traded for a 1st rounder to a QB-weak team. I highly doubt Buffalo makes a trade with NE, but if he did sign there and just learned the system behind Brady and Jimmy G, it could be a great move for him. 

Comment 08 Jun 2017

I'll be the first to admit i don't follow basketball much at all, College or NBA, so forgive me if this sounds like a really stupid question. Is Billy Donovan a realistic option? I've read that he makes $6M per year, which is what Urban makes. Not to mention the revenue stream in football is significantly higher than basketball. also, Donovan is coaching in the NBA and wasn't fired, so wouldn't that be considered a step down since we aren't on par with the Dukes, UNC's, UCLA and Kentucky's of the world? Don't get me wrong, i would love to have a big name coach like that, i just don;t see how that happens right now.

Again, i don;t follow basketball much so if any of what i said is waaay off, my apologies.  

Comment 07 Jun 2017

I don't believe that Bob called any plays on offense or formations on defense, so there shouldn't be much of a change schematically. If Riley relinquishes play calling duties then it could be a huge advantage for us. might also be a slight disadvantage since we won't have much game film on the tendencies of the new offensive coordinator. 

In the end, I think Riley will do excellent in Norman. 

Comment 05 Jun 2017

i feel like this is presser will be to announce a big matchup for next season. I saw on twitter that quite a few people have mentioned that Thad would retire after this season, but if that was the case you would think they knew this was coming and would have told Archie Miller to stay put for a year and not take another job. Unless of course they want to hire someone else? 

Figures, i have a work meeting from 2-3. dammit!

Comment 21 May 2017

Personally I still like the Seven Nation Army song, but for the sake of this thread I get your point. The few seconds of that Fallout boy song are good, and I remember the Bruins featured it about 2-3 yrs ago when they made a deep run in the Stanley Cup Final. Normally I don't root for the Bruins, but I believe that was the year of the bombing, so I wanted them to win it. Not sure if it was my temporary fandom or if I really liked the song, but I did think it was cool when it played. At some point the song will have to change, so it'll be interesting to see what they go with.

This was great! Good stuff BGSU, really appreciate that write-up. I've often wondered about some of the kids that went elsewhere, but there are so many that it's hard to keep track!

Comment 12 May 2017

damn, i thought he was going to be in the mix for playing time this season, but you cannot fault him one bit for his reasoning. Best of luck to him and his father.
