    While I like Thanksgiving, I really don't love the food and really don't eat a whole lot. Turkey is just ok, I despise everything pumpkin, and really none of the other traditional foods (mac&cheese, mashed potatoes, etc) really get me excited. Ham would be the one thing I eat the most of, and deviled eggs would be the other must have for me. But otherwise, I really don't look forward to Thanksgiving food.

    In my early 20's, right after college, I worked for a large sporting goods company. Nike (and Reebok) used to have sales rep pricing they'd offer once a quarter where you could get shoes at 40% off wholesale. This was in the early early-mid 90's and I could get Jordan's for about $55. I had a large collection of shoes....Jordan's, the early Hurache's, the first bunch of ACG shoes etc. The sad part is I used the Jordans to play in a...

    It's nothing short of a miracle I still have a shot at the playoffs after 5 straight losses in weeks 2-6 and starting the season 1-5.

    That would make sense to me. Mainly, because in essence you are scoring twice in all the categories. When a team pitches a shutout, they've likely already accumulated a lot of points for int's, FR's, yards allowed etc. So it turns a nice 20 point day into 40 which really throws off the balance. Plus defense is so random (as well as kickers) in scoring. No other position gets such a big bonus in this league. In fact, with no PPR and no...

    Yes a lot of teams can say they made the playoffs. But I don’t exactly hear anyone claiming success with a 1-9 season that ends with a blowout loss. Players, coaches and fans are all smart enough to realize that it’s a combination of things that determine how successful you were. Everyone making the playoffs hasn’t ruined anyone’s life, or led any kids down the wrong road. Nobody keeps or remembers participation trophies that so many here...

    The Ravens have had 3 ridiculous scores this year, and are the sole reason I'm still alive. They overcame 3 of my guys (Petermen, Agholar, and Tyrell Willams) combining for -1 point this week. The Ravens have outscored Le'veon Bell by 51 points for the season even though they've had 3 weeks where they scored 0, 3, and 2 points. And the crazy thing is, they aren't even one of the top 4 or 5 defenses in the league in most statistical categories.

    I noticed several billboards advertising McRibs on my way down to Owensboro last week. Haven’t seen any in NKY though. While I know McRibs aren’t anything close to real ribs, they are so very tasty and probably my favorite thing at McDonald’s.

    You don't need to cut classes to keep 1-9 teams home. And while population isn't the ultimate decider, it is certainly one of the biggest, and is arguably the most predictable. Larger districts reduce scheduling flexibility for both the really good and really bad teams. People complain about strength of schedule now...what happens when teams who want to step up and play better teams have less opportunity to do so?? All so a 3-4 seed gets a...

    Public/Private isn’t the issue either. There just aren’t enough private football playing schools in the state to justify their own “class”, let alone two classes. The large school private class would basically be Trinity, St X and maybe Cov Cath. Then you’d have a small school class of about 8 teams.

    All of these are huge achievements, and a sign of high level success. All require an investment of time and hard work that took place over the course of most of your child’s life, that you likely came to be very involved in. I guess what I’m saying is, it would be impossible for me to say one particular achievement listed would be better or make me more proud. All would make me extremely proud.

    Cutting classes will not make things more competitive at the district level. All it does is make the gap bigger between the largest and smallest schools. While you might pick up one more competitive game, you’re just as likely to pick up less competitive games. Classes exist because of disparity in size of schools. Cutting the number of classes doesn’t fix or address that problem.

    That's for sure. I'm betting most of the people who are angry about this, haven't picked up a GQ or even thought about picking up GQ magazine in years. Complaining about it is only going to help their sales, and it will have the exact opposite affect that the people who are complaining want. Ignore it and it goes away. Keep complaining, and you'll only help drive sales.

    I don’t have a real issue with limiting playoff participants. I’d rather see 3 get in than just two. But I’m not a fan of a “plus 1” game at the end of the year. If you’re going to do that, just keep the system the way it is.

    Not to mention the internet. You can now get highlights almost right after they happen. By the time Sports Center comes on, it's already old news. In a nutshell, that's why I no longer watch Sports Center more than a couple times a year.

    Finally, after 10 weeks, I had a decent week in football. I cut back on my play and lineups, and only played $48 with 3 different lineups. Two cashed, one of which cashed pretty big, and just missed cashing the 3rd. Finished up a couple hundred $'s, but still down about $100 for the year in football.

    Would it?? Taking just the top two would make this past weekends game the first round (except for the few 3 and 4 seeds that got through by beating not so good 1 and two seeds). Only 12 out of 48 games were decided by 16 points (two touchdowns+two point conversions) or less. And there’s going to be a quite a few blowouts this week too. Trying to eliminate blowouts is a problem that can’t be fixed. I’d rather let everyone in, so we give that...

    I won't argue against reducing the number of teams that go to the playoffs. I also don't know what the big deal about almost everyone going is either. Nobody is regarding a 0-10 season and a playoff blowout as a great accomplishment or as being a trophy worthy season. Kids and coaches aren't stupid. Again, people don't bat an eye when a bad basketball or baseball team gets to participate in the post season district tourney and get boat raced...
