Its a joke and bad look for these conference games.  Divisions within all these conferences are so unbalanced and its ruining the game. Scrap all Divisions amd take top 2 teams.  BIG12 is doing it right!

Get rid of the divisons! 2 top teams play! I am so sick of the unbalanced divisions.  You don't need divisions to play a conference championship game.  NCAA fix!

Last season we had gondola seating for a Wings game...let me just say it was the best view every to watch a hockey game.  That experience was awesome...right at the glass looking down.  Cant beat it.

10/24/2018 - 9:10am Ahhh...we all new for Black…

Ahhh...we all new for Black didnt we?  Pretty sure they made an announcement for him.  Instead we need to hear it from his mom to get all these rumors cleared up that are generated by the media and fans.

10/24/2018 - 8:52am This could have been cleared…

This could have been cleared up and shut down, if UM would have just made an announcement weeks ago.

Last year I took my then 5 year old son to the Big House for the Rutgers game and he sat thru the whole game and loved it.  He stood on the bleachers and my lap to see the action.  Like other posters said.  You will be getting up for bathroom break for sure.  Stay warm and feed them popcorn!

We went to the Western game this year and he is now 6...I will say from 5-6 he was more into the game and understood it better.  Still a great time! Especially free tix...can beat it.  Go out to breakfast before and it will be an awesome time.  

10/22/2018 - 2:49pm The NCAA needs to step in…

The NCAA needs to step in and regulate the Conference Championship games.  Right now you have Conference Championship games that do not even match up the 2 best teams in its conference.  All Conferences need to scrap divisions and take the 2 top teams period.  We see it every year...look at the BIG West Division.  I am tired of having teams go to the playoffs that don't even play for their conference championships.

10/19/2018 - 7:29am College is real basketball…

College is real basketball...the basketball you were taught how to play.  I compare the NBA to the WWE.  Its all about drama.  The game itself is unwatchable for myseld.  Stand around, no defense, 1 on 1, contstant fouls and 50 free throws. Some people like it...I prefer the game that I played.  Press, zone defense and run an actual offense.

08/26/2018 - 2:44pm It really depends on what…

It really depends on what the injury/broken bone is.  I broke my foot in HS and was only out 2 weeks...missed 1 gm.  They gave me an orthotic insert for my cleat.

08/20/2018 - 12:53pm I think every conference …

I think every conference  should get rid of divisions and have the 2 best teams play for the Conference Championship.  This would balance out everything, including the playoffs.  

08/17/2018 - 2:01pm My dad and I have been going…

My dad and I have been going to games since the 80's...He is a Michigan Alum and I am a WMU Alum.  Needless to say I am and always will be a die hard UM fan and will always root for them to win...even over the college I went to.  WMich wins the drinking game tho.

Picked up a 65" TCL for the cottage for like $600 a few months ago.  Very impressed with it and you cant beat the price.  If your into streaming the built in ROKU is perfect.  We decided to just stream when we are up north and its so easy to navigate, my 5 year old is a wizard with it.

A post earlier in the summer suggested to visit thewirecutter.com for reviews and that is what sold me on it, also the amazon reviews...oh and the price since its just a cottage TV.  Also reading more into the company its has grown crazy the past few years since they have been on amazon.  They manufacture all of the components in house and that is why they can sell the TV's for so cheap. 

06/18/2018 - 8:05pm The "X's" for the kickoff…

The "X's" for the kickoff are still on the 30 yard line...Kickoffs are at the 35 yard line.  I assume that is what the "X's" are for.

I still have my 10yr old 58" Panasonic Plasma...I still think the picture is great.  Still waiting on the thing to die.  Its on over 12hrs a day because of the kids and then a night when they go to bed.

I have been to Doak for a few FSU night and day games, they are awesome.  Everyone tailgates at the condos across the street...it gets wild.

One of the best moments was watching the Texas A&M game with a group of friends at the Westgate in Las Vegas...Needless to say for 2 hours that sportsbook was ours.  Go Blue!

Velveeta, Rotel, and cream cheese...BAM!  Mix in crock pot.

01/02/2018 - 7:50am Untill every P5 conference

Untill every P5 conference fixes the imbalance of schedules and divisions you will always have this debate with a 4 team playoff. An 8 team playoff would help and  you would only be adding 1 week to the season.  Have a bye week after the conference championships and then start the playoffs.  

If they are going to keep it at 4 teams, then the NCAA has to step in and mandate 9 conference game schedules and eliminate 1AA games on the schedule.  I also think the NCAA needs to eliminate divisions in conferences to help with the imbalance of schedules.  That way the 2 top teams are guaranteed to play in their own conference championships. 

12/11/2017 - 2:55pm ESPN is so bad...SC6 is so

ESPN is so bad...SC6 is so bad.  I just want a normal sportscenter with highlights back.  SC6 is unwwatchable, the anchors need to go and whoever kept them on the air needs to go.  Awful.

12/04/2017 - 8:14am Eliminating divisions will

Eliminating divisions will help balance out the Conference schedules.  That way you can take the true top 2 teams for the Conference Championship game.  It just proves a point that  you can schedule cupcakes as Non Conf oppenents and it will help your cause to make the playoff...Wisconsin.  They played no one all year, except us at home and then the Conf Championship game which is Neutral site. Also NCAA should mandate 9 conf games. There should be scheduling bylaws...like no 1-AA games.  

12/03/2017 - 10:40am The system is clearly

The system is clearly broken.  Conf divisions are broken and need to be eliminated to get the 2 best teams to atleast play for their Conf Championships.  I am not saying Wisconsin was a bad team, but give them our schedule and they would be a 2 loss team.  Make it an 8 team Playoff with P5 Conference Champions getting Auto Bids and have 3 at large bids.  

 

Use the New Years 6 bowls as the 1st 2 rounds and rotate them yearly. 

11/20/2017 - 6:37am Blame the stagnant offense

Blame the stagnant offense and poor QB play...sems to be a reoccurring theme.  I guess you could have looked at last year, the warning signs were there.  Take it out of the Refs hands.  

11/16/2017 - 11:53am How about Wisconsin's

How about Wisconsin's schedule?  It just shows that if your a P5 team and go undefeated your in contention for a Playoff spot regardless of who you play.  Granted they still have to win the BIG Championship but the schedule locks them into that game because of the West Division and Non Conf. Schedule. Throw Wisconsin in the EAST or eliminate divisions all together and the Badgers record would not be undefeated.  Lets take em to the back of the wood shed! GO BLUE!

10/29/2017 - 11:15am The BIG needs to eliminate

The BIG needs to eliminate the divisions.  Wisconsin has a cake walk to the championship game and they are the 4th or 5th best team in the conference.  I really would like to see the top 2 teams play in the championship and if there is a tie go with head to head and highest ranking.  

I really like the BIG12 format...I know they only have 10 teams, but they are gonna take the top 2 teams because they have no divisions. 

Take a look at Wisconsins schedule...pathetic.

I went to the 2003 FSU vs Miami game at Tally where it was raining the whole game.  I will tell you this....FSU won the tailgate fight but lost the game.  It was the most insane tailgate I have ever witnesses.  This was the game where Roscoe Parrish got lit up.

Going on a guy fishing trip upnorth...should be epic.  Hopefully we catch some fish! Prolly catch more beer tho!

09/15/2017 - 7:25am Speight in my opinion has

Speight in my opinion has regressed and the turnovers are occurring more and more.  He is not an accurate passer past 10 yards.  Obviously they have been working on it for 2 years and he has not gotten any better.  I think that is what everyone is getting tired of and want to see O'Korn and Petters at least get some drives.  

09/10/2017 - 10:24am I would start Brees...hes

I would start Brees...hes consistently a top 5 QB. Worth the risk.

I got Terrance West for RB/WR and if I roll the dice with OBJ I can swap him out with MNF Brandon Coleman.

09/01/2017 - 7:57am i was saying the same exact

i was saying the same exact thing! OSU false starts almost every play! Mostly when Barrett is fake getting the snap...dont know how that is not called every play!  He fake gets the snap and then everyone quickly stands up to look over to the side line.

08/14/2017 - 9:28am I wouldn't even say I live in

I wouldn't even say I live in the boonies, but unfortunately cable is not ran down my road and I am in Comcast territory even the Charter lines are closer to my house.  Its messed up.  I got an estimate of over 100k to run cable a little over a mile from Comcast.  Its ridiculous!  When we first moved in we tried a Hot Spot and that was the worst...kept going in and out.  We are currently on ATT DSL @ 6mb...but at 1st we were at 768kb.  So thank god they upped it to 6mb.  At least our internet is usable now.  But still its frustrating and I feel your pain.  Check out DSL reports for stuff and check the forums.  Also look around for WISP in your area.  

For all the money going around from these Telco companys buying everything and everyone.  ATT and Directv...etc.  I would bet the entire country could get fiber.  

08/11/2017 - 7:33am ESPN isn't going

ESPN isn't going anywhere...They are starting a streaming service just like everyone else.  Yes ESPN's content is awful and whoever green-lit this SC6 crap should have been fired immediately.  Also how is it still on the air?  Everyone should be fired for keeping that crap on.  I cant even watch sportscenter at 6pm anyone because it is just go awful.  I turn to sprotscenter for highlights and news.  They have completely abandoned that model and it has turned into TMZ and The View combined. 

 

Good article to read on how it came aobut.

Cut Ausmus now!  See if they can win with Omar Vizquel.  This team obviously doesnt play for Ausmus, give another guy a shot.  Get rid of Avila while they are at it.

05/29/2017 - 8:56am You cant tell me that

You cant tell me that coaching has nothing to do with this team.  I am not talking about in game decisions, but actual coaching of players.  What was Ausmus coaching experience before this stint?  What 1 player has gotten better? Everyone has regressed. They should have cleaned house after last season.

The easiest fix is to eliminate all divisions with in every conference.  This will create true conference championship games that actually mean something.  Take the 2 best teams and if there is a tie between...go with the highest playoff ranking.  If we did that we would get the following matchups below.

My point is the top 2 teams in the conference dont always play in the conference championship...it would make it more clear in the playoff discussion.

 

ACC

Clemson vs. Louisville

Big 10

Ohio St. vs Penn St.

Same - Wash vs Colo

SEC

Big 12 - NO CONF. Champ. this year.

Oklahoma vs Okla St or WVU

08/10/2015 - 12:06pm We have eliminated the team

We have eliminated the team defense and went with Individual Defense: 2 DL 2 LB and 2 DB but still have a kicker.  It blows away Team Defense and Special Teams.  Tackles are .5pts, sacks are 2, INTs are 3, fumble recoveries are 3 and TD's are 3.  That way if you get a INT for TD you get 6pts total. 

 

Keeper League.

 

Make your draft epic in any way possible and make it your big money league.  I make pump up videos and a funny video for the champion every year.

Last Place has to wear a dress to the draft and we get to name his team.

I also have a bad ass silver spade trophy that goes to the winner.

So does anyone have any Comcast hook ups for service?

Recently moved into a newer house down a private dr and there was only uverse available at 768kbps. comcast wanted over 40k to run line to my house...unreal. Using a hot spot now which is horrible..capped an 90$ a month. You take things for granted I guess and dont realize what you have.
