06/09/2018 - 10:39pm 1.  I miss the "New"…

1.  I miss the "New" identifier.  If I refresh a post, it is nice to easily see if anything has been added, so I can then look at it.

2.  I cannot get the site to show Newest Posts Firsts, nor can I get it so 100 posts show on a page.  

3.  When I refresh, I am taken back to the first page, not the page I was on.

4.  Difficult to get to my previous posts.

5.  Would like notifications if a person replies to a post of mine directly. 

06/09/2018 - 11:03am I don't see where he can go…

I don't see where he can go that would get him past Golden State.  He wants to compete, but at this point, he also has to be looking at other things, right?  

Philly is not ready to win now.  Boston has Kyrie, so how would they co-exist?  Houston has too many ball-heavy players as it is.  

What if he and CP3 or PG13 went somewhere like New Orleans?  I have no idea their cap space, but they could team up with Anthony Davis.  But would that even be enough?

06/05/2018 - 9:10pm Wait...POSBANG is an acronym…

Wait...POSBANG is an acronym???

05/30/2018 - 6:49pm I thought this might

be a thread for haikus

05/26/2018 - 2:47pm I am picturing

them all with keys around their necks, leaning in to turn them simultaneously

04/23/2018 - 5:59pm I so hope this

game is Tecmo Super Bowl, but I fear it will be more like Ten Yard Fight.  

03/11/2018 - 9:39am Exposing your

9 year old to bad basketball...that is definitely cringe-worthy.

03/10/2018 - 9:37pm Yippee ki yay

Mister Falcon!

03/06/2018 - 8:29pm The selection show is

way overrated.  Why not release the brackets, then like 2 hours later, run a show where the hosts and "experts" reveal their analysis and brackets, and they interview some coaches, etc?  

Is anyone actually sitting there with a blank bracket and filling in teams???

02/25/2018 - 10:46am Serious question...

a lot of the documents seem to indicate "loans" or "advances." 

Could these companies/people/bagmen set up backended repayment plans so that the kids or families would have to repay the loan much later?  Wouldn't this be somewhat similar to them taking out a private student loan?

02/24/2018 - 7:05pm so in other

words, Miller's attorney will actually be arguing his client was fired for a good reason.

02/04/2018 - 3:09pm Look...tell your

5 year old to throw a dodgeball right at Dylan's head.  Then, while Dylan is laying on the ground crying, your 5 yr old walks over and whispers "Deflate that!"

01/13/2018 - 11:31am His is the voice in my

head when I think of college football.  Not just his sayings, but every big play takes me back to him.  

01/09/2018 - 7:18pm How about 66?

Take the current P5, Notre Dame, BYU, UCF, and Boise State.  

6 conferences of 11, play each conference team 1 time, so 10 conference games.  

One out of conference from the P5, one from the G5.  

01/09/2018 - 3:01pm Love your

idea of  the conference champ auto-bid being rank dependent.  I know hypotheticals can always be played how you want, but look at Michigan in 2020 (I think).  Say they lose to Washington, V Tech, one team from BIG West, and one team from BIG East, but win a tiebreaker at 7-2 in conference with only one divisional loss.  They then win the BIGCG to move to 9-4.  Should that be a playoff guarantee?  Maybe that is a top 8 team, but I don't think a bid should be automatic.

FWIW...I picked the MIchigan 2020 team because it is a time where a team plays several P5 non-cons that are against good teams.

Incredible Blog Diarrhea

01/06/2018 - 4:33pm I have a huge moneyline

parlay on the Falcons, Patriots, Steelers, and Packers.  Feeling pretty good about it.

 

 

Well, damn Clarence, you removed the image before my comment went up!

01/04/2018 - 8:06pm I would think so too...

they obviously don't want to gp up against NFL playoff games and the Super Bowl in January/early February.  

The Walking Dead usually returns for its 2nd half of a season around mid-February, so for a fan of both, having Thrones return in mid-April would be a great transition.  

01/04/2018 - 7:19pm Did they actually

announce summer of 2019?  I believe 2019 is all they have mentioned on that front.

12/29/2017 - 7:23pm That response

is lit

12/29/2017 - 7:20pm I was really surprised

to see that line.  Darnold will probably be a gametime scratch due to an "injury" in warmups.  

12/28/2017 - 9:29pm UVA might be

salivating over him after today.

12/28/2017 - 11:14am I think there

is a difference in the type of kneel play.  In a victory formation, when the game is sealed, the QB is most certainly going to kneel.  The Bucs were diving in at the ball (and perhaps indirectly, guys knees) to try to cause a fumble.  Now I get the idea of "never stop playing," but that situation is that unwritten no-no.

Last night, I think about 50 seconds were left when Purdue ran that play.  I was a little surprised they even lined up to "run out clock" with that much time left before half.  But Arizona players clearly stood up relaxed.  

 

12/23/2017 - 11:58am so you came

in to a post you don't like to urge people to ignore posts they don't like???

12/23/2017 - 9:09am Cougar, you

couldn't smooth a silk sheet if you had a hot date with a babe...

12/18/2017 - 9:23pm Maybe creating an account should

be like a guy meeting a girl's father when he picks her up for a date.  A few trusted,veteran users grilling the suitor.  

Ya know, like a "What are your intentions with my blog?" kind of thing.  

 

12/18/2017 - 9:05pm Yeah, but if you

have a bat with barbed-wire, and instead you jam the handle into the guy's gut, it doesn't really have the same effect.  I mean what the hell was Rick doing???

12/16/2017 - 10:09pm I love the blog

and come here often.  Sports talk, off topic, doesn't bother me.

A couple things that might work for the OP:

1.  I get that the points don't really mean anything, but if you want to potentially eliminate some of the posts that seem annoying (for whatever reason) to others, raise the point threshold. 

2.  Simply raising the poinits needed to start a thread might not be enough, so make changes to the points system.  Eliminate receiving a point for simply posting.  Points come from upvotes or downvotes only.  

3.  Allow for multiple in-game threads.  I feel like so many people are involved, and so many comments are being made, that most questions/comments get ignored.  Several threads might actually allow for more conversation.  

12/14/2017 - 9:50pm How do you have

150 points?

12/03/2017 - 10:28pm No, I'm

sure they just slept head to foot

12/03/2017 - 10:06pm Thought I saw that

line was reversed.  Actually UM -8 I believe.

12/03/2017 - 9:44pm So SHE'S

Franklin Hatchett???  Unbelievable! /s

12/03/2017 - 2:35pm Are people

thinking Franklin and Bigly are alter egos?

12/03/2017 - 12:45pm Isn't it location based?

Clemson to Sugar Bowl rather than across the country to Pasadena?  So Bama has a nice play to play.  

12/03/2017 - 12:31pm Franklin Hatchett

knows "Money Talks"

12/03/2017 - 12:28pm Isn't the Rose Bowl

a seminfinal game this year?

12/01/2017 - 9:41pm It might

also make you bigly yuge or make your "money talks"

12/01/2017 - 8:54pm What am I

missing?

12/01/2017 - 8:34pm Check the PAC 12

title game thread

12/01/2017 - 8:14pm I feel like that

scene from Horrible Bosses, when Kevin Spacey announces he will be naming himself the new VP of whatever, and just doubling the size of his office, is right around the corner for Fulmer.  

12/01/2017 - 8:09pm True...

but 10 eastern means much of country doesn't watch 2nd half or end of game.  

12/01/2017 - 10:56am Maybe Hoke will get the job

and instead of never wearing long sleeves (up in Michigan, in the cold), he will exclusively wear parkas and stocking hats in the heat of the south.  

11/29/2017 - 12:47pm Has this been

approved by Clay Travis yet, though?

11/28/2017 - 7:41pm I like some

of your ideas, but the ads don't seem to be going anywhere.  

As others have mentioned, and others have shot down, not stopping the clock on every first down could certainly help speed things up.  Maybe stop it last 2 (or 5 minutes, or something) of each half.  Or at least, if it does stop every 1st down, get it started quicker.  

In terms of reviews, I understand the player safety aspect, but the targeting reviews (which seem to happen at least once per game) take what seems like forever.  

I am also not a fan of the automatic reviews that take place, like on scoring plays.  Leave that to coaches and teams to challenge.

11/26/2017 - 9:35pm And I would

also be interested to know how many of those fans actually researched something, or just saw a post online and ran with it.

For instance, I just read a link to an article from someone (who mentioned heavy involvement in the coverage and trial at Penn State) and he believed that none of the claims against Schiano had any weight.  

If UT fans had seen that, as opposed to the nasty articles about him, what happens?

11/26/2017 - 9:25pm I'm very conflicted with

how I feel about what went down at Tennessee with Schiano.  I am not supporting the guy, as he has his issues, but you can't tell me most of those fans would not be ok with this if he had a better resume.  

And now, with social media and the ability to quickly spread info and organize things, it made it happen much faster.  I'd be surprised if this doesn't start some kind of trend.  

11/24/2017 - 6:13pm Did they botch it?

Haven't been paying much to that situation over the  last few days.  I know he turned them down, but did they really botch it so much as he decided it wasn't for him?

11/23/2017 - 10:33pm maybe it's

David spade singing/mumbling like in Tommy Boy?

11/23/2017 - 7:26am Important debate question...

what time is Thanskgiving "dinner" for you?  Growing up, my family was always of the mindset "eat early, eat all day."  My wife's side, on the other hand (and mostly my mother-in-law, who truly believes she must follow all things Emily Post) has to have spaced out time for all parts of the meal, so they want it at like 6.  I actually won this year, and we are eating at 2.

What say you?

11/20/2017 - 9:17pm 4 hours?!? Damn...

so you got this game going, what, 5 overtimes?
