Obviously it's early and it will change, but who do you have now and who do you believe will get replaced?
G - Curry
G - Harden
F - LeBron
F - Davis
C - Gasol
That team would be so incredible, even historically. I don't think people appreciate how talented the NBA is today. Just for suit...
| Coaching Changes|| Up and coming coaches who didn't pan out - slackster on 12/12/14 at 9:44 am|
The disdain for Paul Chryst got me thinking about some of the up and coming coaches who quickly fell out of flavor. It seems, more often than not, that the craze is often not warranted. What other coaches were you big on until things fell apart?

| More Sports Board|| Why isn't the triple option offense more popular in college/NFL? - slackster on 12/2/14 at 9:36 am|
I've always been told that the speed of defenses for elite colleges and the NFL are a problem for this type of offense, but the same was said about the spread option and it has been rather successful in the NFL and is rampant in college.
In high school, undermanned teams with small offensive lin...

I didn't see anything other than the prediction thread so perhaps this will suffice for the discussion tonight.
I'm at the CHSNI @ Newman game. Hopefully it will be a good one and I'll update as possible. I'll try to keep the OP updated with games of interest around the state as I see scores, mo...

I'm in town for the holiday and I'm debating whether or not I should go to the Catholic NI game at Newman today. I've been told parking and seating is a nightmare, so I planned on being there for 5 pm. Unfortunately I was told that they wouldn't open the gate until 6. Is that true? Is there a mad ru...
| O-T Lounge|| So tonight will test the idea that an earlier announcement would have been wiser - slackster on 11/25/14 at 9:02 am|
The decision to announce the no true bill at 8pm has been widely criticized, but I'm of the opinion that an earlier announcement would have been even worse. Last night was largely unavoidable, and an earlier announcement could have brought danger to many more people, including kids that weren't yet ...

| More Sports Board|| Should 11-1 Miss St be in the playoffs if Bama wins the SECW/SEC? - slackster on 11/12/14 at 10:00 am|
I ask this here because the MSB should give a less biased answer than the SEC Rant. If Mississippi State loses Saturday, but wins out other than that, and Alabama wins out, Alabama wins the SECW.
Obviously Bama is in if they win out. Mississippi State would still have arguably the best resume i...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| K. Benjamin for J. Gordon? - slackster on 11/12/14 at 9:30 am|
Standard scoring. I've got a 97.7% chance of making the playoffs according to the machine. The guy with Gordon is on the fringe and could use some immediate help at WR. I've got Dez, Benjamin, James Jones, B. LaFell, and K. Allen.

Trying to focus on the positives this morning, and one of those is our improvement on defense throughout the year. The past three weeks have felt like the defense of old, and they are still quite young.
With competent QB play the sky is the limit in the next few years. ...

I know it gives the media something to discuss, but I think the committee is going to open itself up to serious criticism. Similar to preseason polls, I think the committee is going to have a hard shaking the bias that will exist from tonight's rankings.
If you're going to tout yourself as a sys...

I've got an aluminum boat that has a deck coated with a spray gel designed to minimize the heat and add grip to the boat deck. It is basically a hybrid between a rhino-lining and a pure gel coat.
Anyway, the boat was uncovered for some time and there are stains even after a thorough pressure was...

I've already used San Diego, so that one is out. I'm leaning towards Denver or San Francisco, but I hate taking the road team in survivor. May just have to roll with Seattle. ...
