GREAT idea. Very similar to how sailing is one design for the Olympics, and brings in some people to race each other who are otherwise in different classes around the world.

This is a very good point, and I respect your comment. A minor quibble is that Ruth, Cobb, and other greats didn't play against black people, or many foreigners, and you could argue that the pitching advancements alone would confuse the hell out of the older players. But, in general, baseball from 1966 is way closer than the NFL, NBA, and NHL of the same era.
On the other hand, the world changed around it and Serious Baseball People have talked about making changes to adapt--Buster Olney has floated shortening games to 7 innings, among other non-traditional changes.

The app theoretically uses way less data since it doesn't load extraneous data from the website, including the formatting and ads, etc. If you are on wifi most of the time it shouldn't matter.

This is solid art but I don't understand why you would want pictures of every team except your own on the wallpaper. Give me Harbaugh or Peppers or Chesson, not mascots and coaches.

I'm repeating what I said yesterday. All it would take is flipping Indiana and MSU. From IU's perspective, they have a schedule imbalance because M/OSU are both home in odd years. I don't know for sure but I assume those are their biggest games, so they might be amenable to flipping M, with the bonus that they get home games against us two years in a row. It can be fixed as early as 2020.

Because there are more considerations than just what the fans want? It's probably best to reserve judgement until we get the full story, and details that went into the decision.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||No, just Indiana. It's||
No, just Indiana. It's probably too late to do it in 2018 but I don't think the 2020 Big Ten schedule has been released. Currently M is scheduled to be vIU @MSU in 2020. Switch those and you're back on track, with the bonus of Michigan getting two straight home games in 2019-2020 vs MSU (return for 2013-14). I don't think Indiana would mind, they currently have OSU and M on the same home/away schedule, it they switch it up they would have OSU/MSU away in 2020 and M/PSU home.
SOMEBODY MAKE THIS HAPPEN
|7 weeks 5 days ago||You're exactly right. In ND||
You're exactly right. In ND is home game 5 after the 4 B1G games. Doing it this way opens more flexibility with filling the holes in 2018-2019. ND away in 2019 would almost require two tomato can home games since there would be 6 committed away games.

This is funny and good and all, but I feel like Harbaugh isn't the most insane coach in the world. Crazy and eccentric, probably, but not insane. There are many no-doubt loonies in Latin American soccer, minor league baseball, high school football etc., that are worse than Harbaugh.

Everyone from the thread last Tuesday calling this Ausmus's last series are curiously absent from this thread. Weird how they won 6 in a row including 4 on the road with such a terrible team.
|10 weeks 3 hours ago||Not really a failure story||
Not really a failure story but sad nonetheless: 2014, I'm driving a 1978 Cadillac Seville, handed down from my grandmother. White with a dark red top and red leather seats. I convince the family that I should get it because I will park it safely underground instead of on the street at home. I am away for a weekend to attend my sister's graduation, leaving the car there. I get a call on Saturday morning saying there was an incident with my car. I get back to see it, and a 4 foot chunk of the concrete ceiling had fallen directly on top of the roof, crushing it. Car is totaled. After more than a year, we replace it with a similar car (76 with a tan top, it actually looks better than the other one) that I'm driving now, but not after a lot of pain and suffering. I'll never forget how the old one looked.

Coin flipping is random but an entire country doesn't time it's bathroom breaks around a game of competitive coin flipping. The pro leagues are successful because they strike a good balance between rewarding smart play (players, coaches and GMs) and being unpredictable and dramatic each night. But many feel hockey, and the NHL in particular, are trending too far to the "every game is a coinflip" side.

It seems a little unfair to the winner to miss out on two more wins and a home series (extra ticket $$). If they host the semis and final, it makes up for it, partially.

January 1 is a Sunday and the NFL plays then. When that happens the NYD bowls get bumped to Jan. 2. That's how it always happens.

Brady, Brees and Wilson are in fact the only QBs NOT drafted in the first round to win a Super Bowl since 2003. The rest: both Mannings, Roethlisberger, Rodgers, Flacco.

I believe each one of those were in series their teams ended up winning, and all but Thomas still ended up winning the Cup, I think. So yeah, shit happens, but it doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of the NHL playoffs.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||Oh come on. Hate a team with||
Oh come on. Hate a team with Datsyuk and Zetterberg, Larkin, Nyquist, and Athanasiou, and Mrazek? Yes it's frustrating that the Wings are now at the bottom of the conference instead of the top, and not an obvious Cup contender right now, but we're still making the playoffs annually, took the SCF runner-up to 7 games last year, and have youth in the pipeline.
Yes there are things to be frustrated about. The Babcock to Blashill transition has been rougher than everyone assumed and we probably overpaid slightly for Ericsson, Abdelkader and a few others. But those are not team-killing mistakes. It's hard to build an elite team without high picks - look at the top teams this year, they all have multiple lottery picks in their core. Larkin (and Mantha) are the only ones we have, and they were both mid-first round picks. What Holland has done in the 11 seasons since the lockout is pretty amazing, keeping the team competitive without totally sucking for a few seasons.
Plus, look at the roster, this has to be the bottom, it will get better from here. Losing Dats and Z will hurt over the next few years but they're not what they used to be anyway. I'm excited to see what Larkin, Mantha, AA, and others can do as they mature. Petr Mrazek is 23 years old, he could be the next superstar goalie in a year or two. The defense needs help, but that can be addressed.
|22 weeks 4 hours ago||I dunno, I think it's more||
I dunno, I think it's more the fact that it's only 16 teams compared to 64 (I mean 68). If the basketball tournament were only the Sweet 16 teams, we might realize that it is almost as random as hockey. This year, all four 1s made it to the Sweet 16 (Elite 8 even) but only one made it to the Final Four. I think the fact that 1s make it to the FF as much as they do is more a function of an easier path in the first couple rounds, where they play a 16 (and never lose) and an 8/9 (generally a mediocre team from a big conference or an at-large from a mid-major, not great teams either way).

Looks like Sean Ornery got caved, finally, and his bitchy post disappeared. It's why drjaws's post looks out of context.

If UND can score so much against what I assume is a competent defensive team, I'm scared what they would do to the M defense. Not that I'm looking ahead of the other UND tonight.
