I was there too, it was weird.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Seinfeld||
I remember not loving the Seinfeld finale at the time, but in retrospect it seems pretty appropriate. They didn't really care about giving people what they wanted.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Just as those not based on||
Just as those not based on equations are inherently flawed for different reasons. By using a static, transparent equation, formulae like KenPom's at least give us a consistent starting point for scrutiny and debate, as opposed to human polls or "proprietary" ones like BPI.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I don't really love Oberon||
I don't really love Oberon either, but I'm definitely not a Whitsun fan. It's been a while, but I remember it having the mouthfeel of like a peppered Bud light. Which probably only makes sense in my head.

People eat dinner at Whole Foods?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Oberon Availability||
No, it's seasonal in Michigan, and in most places I think, though I know Florida also gets it year-round.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Wichita State Geography||
It's not just the potential Louisville matchup that screws Wichita geographically.
Let's assume the high-ish seeds win out in the Midwest. EVERY SINGLE ONE of those teams is closer to the round site than Wichita St. To wit:
Driving time to St Louis
1 - Wichita: 6:22
8 - Kentucky: 5:01
9 - Kansas St: 5:24
Driving time to Indy
1 - Wichita: 9:53
4 - Louisville: 1:43
5 - St. Louis: 3:43
2 - Mich: 4:04
3 - Duke: 9:16
Now obviously some of this is just Wichita being geographically somewhat isolated (and a bit unlucky that there's no Kansas City site this year). And a few of them (Duke, KSU) are obviously not significant differences. But man, it's not like there aren't some teams hanging around other regions that couldn't have been swapped to help out Wichita (in particular swapping out Kentucky would have been nice.)

|7 weeks 2 days ago||Throwbacks||
I'm honestly not a huge fan of them but I appreciate that they're legit throwbacks and not "throwbacks", so I'd be cool with it. Wish teams did it more often, us included.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Very helpful||
Yeah, I'm sure that's what he meant.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||5 + 3 - 1 = 6?||
Maybe there are like 7m people who have both.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Lineage||
You don't expect to see a Lineage avatar on a sports blog - maybe we should do these intstrumental hip-hop/jazz/etc threads more often.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Antonio Jeremiah||
"Jeremiah was nothing more than a bit player who suffered a knee injury going into his final season. A fitting end to a failed tenure."
Seems a little mean-spirited, no?

That's a good price. The very cheapest you'll see is $15.99, but it's usually in the $17-19 range, and I've seen it as high as $22.
|13 weeks 3 hours ago||You lucky bastard. I only||
You lucky bastard. I only managed to get my hands on one bottle of BCBW, and even that was through a trade.
|13 weeks 16 hours ago||Schedule sets up nicely?||
Seriously? Not worried about @ND, @MSU, @OSU?
|14 weeks 15 hours ago||No no no, they're the ones||
No no no, they're the ones that don't wear helmets at all, just golden Christmas ornaments with face masks attached.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||They Do||
I think they call them shootouts.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah, Michigan Basketball was||
Yeah, Michigan Basketball was TERRIBLE in the early 90s. I mean, they don't have a single banner in the rafters at
|31 weeks 5 days ago||Betteridge's Law||
Relevant here, I think.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Harbaugh||
Didn't Harbaugh pretty much answer this question?
|1 year 12 weeks ago||I would argue he hasn't been||
I would argue he hasn't been the best MLB in the league for a number of years, but your point is still basically true, and there's no way you can keep a guy that dominant out of the Hall.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Well in that case...how about||
Well in that case...how about some Final Four tickets?
|1 year 18 weeks ago||FYI, just looked it up: It||
FYI, just looked it up: It was Sat, Dec 10 1994, Wiscy was ranked #14 and coached by Stan Van Gundy (though they turned out to be pretty bad that season, finishing 13-14.) EMU won 92-76.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||I was gonna mention this one.||
I was gonna mention this one. I was at that game, and it was probably the best atmosphere I've ever experienced for a basketball game. Bowen Field House was a great gym, and it was packed. The Convocation Center is just so...sterile and empty. Feels like a small NBA arena.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||This has been said elsewhere,||
This has been said elsewhere, but that's not necessarily because the students weren't there. The bottom 10 rows of the student section are filled to probably 150-200% capacity, and the next 30 are probably around 125-150%. If every single person with a ticket showed up, you would still get quite a few empty rows because of this.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Wes Welker||
Supposedly he was talking to Wes Welker and Deion Branch, who were giving him shit about the previous play.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||99 Points?||
What are you talking about? We lost the last two games last year by a combined 21 points, and that was to the Saints and Packers, both on the road.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Yeah, this is about as close||
Yeah, this is about as close as Special K gets to locally-inspired music.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||He was referring to||
He was referring to JohnnyBlue's usage, not EGD. Confused me for a second too.
