| Fantasy Sports Board|| Trade Advice - ohiovol on 12/2/13 at 7:35 am|
Someone in my league wants to trade me LeSean McCoy for Rob Gronkowski.
My current RB2 is Pierre Thomas. My backup tight end is Greg Olsen.
A couple of things to keep in mind:
1. This is a PPR league, so Thomas is actually a top ten under these settings.
2. This is a keeper league, and Gronk...
| Soccer Board|| Someone catch me up - ohiovol on 10/19/13 at 9:00 am|
For several reasons, I have not been following European league soccer nearly as closely as I used to these last few years. I know that probably sounds nonsensical, since we're getting significantly more games and more and more Americans are playing overseas every year, but it's true.
That said, m...

I've thought about this before, but looking at the standings in the UEFA region made me decide to post a thread here. How do people think we would do in other regions?
| SEC Rant|| Does Florida still see Tennessee as a rival? - ohiovol on 9/22/13 at 9:44 am|
Serious question. I probably wouldn't if I was a Florida fan. Outside 1998-2004, nothing about this series makes it seem like a rivalry....

| SEC Rant|| Rough Stretch ahead for Tennessee - ohiovol on 9/8/13 at 10:02 am|
These are Tennessee's games through October:
I see almost no way Tennessee doesn't go 1-5 over this stretch. There's a very good chance it will be 5 blowout losses, too.
How does Tennessee respond? That will be the bi...
| Soccer Board|| Brazilian National Anthem - ohiovol on 6/22/13 at 2:33 pm|
Last game the fans kept singing after the music stopped. Today it wasn't as strong, but you could hear a decent amount of fans finishing it.
They're definitely not playing the entire verse. Is this a FIFA decision or a Brazilian football decision? Plenty of other anthems are longer, so why cut it...

| Soccer Board|| Have to root for Mexico tonight - ohiovol on 2/6/13 at 4:57 pm|
It sucks, but we can't afford to see the other teams taking points off them. I hate them, but they're going to make it to Brazil. Therefore, it would be best for us if they're 8-0 in games that don't involve us....
| SEC Rant|| Added historical significance for older Bama fans - ohiovol on 12/13/12 at 11:19 am|
Obviously two of the best, if not the two best, programs in the history of college football playing for a national title is a big deal. However, I was wondering if there was additional significance for the Bama fans who are old enough to remember the 70's.
I consider Bryant to be the best coach i...

| SEC Rant|| I have to admit I was wrong - ohiovol on 11/18/12 at 9:33 am|
While I never had confidence in Dooley, I never thought it would get this bad. Prior to this season, I remember arguing with some on here (I pretty sure kajungator was one of them) that there's no way that Tennessee would be as bad as they were saying. Turns out, that's exactly how bad Tennessee is....

| SEC Rant|| If Wilcox didn't leave - ohiovol on 11/14/12 at 8:33 am|
this Tennessee team would be the offensive version of Mike Shula's 2005 Alabama team.
Agree or disagree?
I agree. I think we would win 9 or 10 games and it would temporarily seem like Dooley isn't an incompetent loser, but it would just be delaying the inevitable....

Kind of serious here. I'm not sure Saban wants to be the one who delivers his former assistant the knockout blow.
I'm thinking Alabama gets up by a few scores and then spends the second half running out the clock....

The Florida and Georgia games were more important. Winning either would have won Dooley a lot more support and would have gone a long way in terms of job security. If Tennessee won either game, they're still in the East race and the public perception of the program would have been greatly improved. ...

One of the conditions for Klinsmann to take the job was to give him more control over youth development than previous coaches had had. Also, many of us were hopeful that he would make changes that could greatly benefit US soccer long term.
I'll admit I haven't been paying very close attention. Ha...

Any predictions? I'm thinking 1-3 or 0-4....
