    BC basically ran 2 plays (inside run to #2 or rollout dump pass to a back / TE) the entire 2nd half. UofL defense refused to stop either one. As I've said before, defense lacks talent, is coached awfully, executes poorly and plays stupid. Other than that, how was the play Mrs. Lincoln? With all that said, they are driving to win the game when Smith (who appeared to be going through the motions all day anyway) coughs up the ball and gives...

    Wasn't it 3 home games remaining because of that stupid old format where the better team started with 2 games on the road and then got the final 3 at home? I think they lost 3 straight at GABP after winning 2 in SF. (Of course, rotation got all blownt up by Cueto in winning those 2 games, but that's not as much fun to talk about.)

    Let's not get crazy. Big win and much needed after those tough losses, but it's hard (if not impossible) to get a "statement win" without a quality opponent on the other side of the field.

    Odd place for this question, but I asked preseason and didn't see an answer (maybe I missed it). With the District just being CCH, DH and HHS since Grant dropped out, who does the winner of this District (CCH is the current favorite) play in WK1 of the playoffs? I assume there is a 5 team district elsewhere in the state that makes the playoffs due to the imbalance, but not sure.

    I liked that package as well. Give NC State coaches something else to look at on film during a short week. NC St. D line against UofL O line should tell the story on THU. O line doesn't have to "win" the battle (they almost certainly will not), but they at least have to not get "slaughtered" (penalties of various kinds & quantities, blown assignments, etc.). Not sure NC St. win at FSU was as quality as some are viewing it given their squeaker...

    Mick Cronin? I like the Ralph Willard suggestion as an interim, but I see no reason why he'd do it. Hell, let Dan McDonnell go over there and clean things up. It's gonna be a train wreck, so might as well "lose with integrity."

    2015 was the year. Cubs left Bryant in AAA to get another year of control and didn't bring him up until a date when, if he stayed there, he wouldn't get a full year of service time. Bryant / Union grieved it. Grievance is pending. Of course, YMMV. :)

    Absolutely. Recognize, of course, that nobody kneeling for an anthem has engaged in wildly violent and despicable racist criminal acts while folks wearing the same "costume" as you at the Bengals game have. While it would be illegal for someone to attack you, that doesn't mean it won't happen. As they used to say on Hill Street Blues, "Let's be careful out there."

    Didn't say he was "terrible." Don't think he's terrible. If you look at my posts, I think alot of LJ. That said, he does have an admitted weakness that both he and Petrino have said he needs to work on - ball security when running and INTs. Anyone who was at the UK game last year knows the frustration of his suspect ball security. Part of it you accept in exchange for the dynamic plays he makes. In a game where there wasn't much to take...

    LJ with 2 more unforced TOs. I'm sure he's trying, but the results are not changing. (The other INT was completely on Dez.)

    So Stoops himself, who said he was responsible for those plays, is an "idiot?" I get it.

    Particularly after having the ball in close on 1st down and going backward with sacks to take a chip shot to a long FG.

    In fact, poor coaching by UF. Burn some clock before you call that TO. It's 3rd & 1 inside your 10 and you have 3 TOs. Why call a TO early in the play clock at 0:43?

    Mid-market clubs like the Reds have a 2-5 yr. window where they have to put all the pieces together and have them perform in the MLB at the same time. Otherwise, through ARB or FA, the players become too expensive to keep enough of them to contend. Cubs did it with Bryant (i.e., keeping him in AAA when he was likely ready for MLB ABs) and took heat for it. They don't even have to worry about $ like the Reds do and knew it was the right thing to...

    Hamilton - give him 1st half of 2018 batting bottom of order to see what he gives you. He is not suited to leadoff with his low OBP. If no progression there, try to deal him at deadline as the experiment is over here and someone else may believe that they can change him. Also, a pinch runner / defensive replacement at low cost and under team control could be a very valuable piece of the puzzle for a contender. Winker - agree he looks "ready...

    Agree. Worst case scenario here is he takes the deal and is back here for $18M and reverts to back of baseball card. If that happens, part with him for 2019. If he continues to perform, try to sign for value or trade before deadline.

    Love this deal. Even if he "goes Meso" it's chump change. If he continues to develop, $4M/yr. and $7.5M/yr. in YR5 are bargains. If you can deal Meso w/o eating >50% of his salary, do it. If not, he's your backup if he's ever healthy.

    A lot of batted balls are also taken out of play. Unless you're at the game OR get an unusual camera angle, you don't see it. You see all the pitched balls that bounce and are taken out of play because that is where the camera is focused. Also, authentication is a huge thing now. If you ever notice, just about every ball taken out of play, broken bats and other things I am guessing are sent to a guy right next to the dugout who has a sheet of...

    Clemson dominated UofL. Jackson was not as good as he usually is (execution of called play OR creativity) and that was because of Clemson D. Not sure if any more called runs would have helped take some pressure off Jackson, but would have liked to have seen them try. Williams is gonna be a good RB if he stays healthy. UofL D was not good, but Clemson QB performed better than could have been expected given the situations, Alexander loss is...
