Which of these groups is tougher to WIN?
In other words, would we have qualified in England's position? Keep in mind that we would need to win that group, not just finish top 3....

| SEC Rant|| Can we stop pretending like making the NCAA tournament is a big deal? - ohiovol on 4/17/14 at 7:28 am|
Why do people here act like it's some major accomplishment to make it into the NCAA tournament? Shouldn't that be the damn baseline?
Tennessee fans aren't asking for a lot. We don't expect to win as much as Kentucky or Florida with Donovan. But since the field expanded to 32, Tennessee has made t...

| Soccer Board|| Hypothetical Regarding Maradona - ohiovol on 4/8/14 at 9:19 am|
Many consider Diego Maradona to be the best player of all time, in large part thanks to his performance in the 1986 World Cup.
However, what happens if Maradona is caught trying to score with his hand against England in the Quarterfinals and sent off (again, this is a hypothetical). He finishes t...

The stage is set. The world's premier sporting event is being held in the mecca of soccer. The host nation is desperate to avenge a loss from more than 60 years ago.
I think this World Cup has a lot of potential. There are some great groups, and there should be a lot of exciting matches throughou...

I'm currently down 5 points.

I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty nervous right now....
| Soccer Board|| Is there any doubt that Group G is the Group of Death? - ohiovol on 12/21/13 at 10:01 am|
I know we aren't the most neutral of observers, but I really don't think it's all that close. I genuinely believe you can argue that this group has the best team in CONCACAF, UEFA, and CAF. The other team features a top two player in the World. This is the only group where all four teams made it to ...
| 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...

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...

How does Tennessee respond? That will be the bi...

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...

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.
