You can make the trip up to Cleveland to see the Rock and Roll HOF. About an hour away. They actually sell a pass (at least they did a few years ago) that gets you admission to both on the same day for a cheaper price (you don't need the entire day at each one). Don't know if that would be available...

[quote]Am I the only person who has an issue with teams being allowed to call a timeout after every damn possession in the last minute? The worst part of college basketball is having to wait 30 minutes to see the last 1:30 of a game.
Limit teams to one timeout in the last minute. Sorry but all t...

[quote]I like the 35 second shot clock for these reasons:
-Competitive Balance, with a 24 second shot clock there would not be as much parody, the deeper/more athletic teams like Kentucky would be even more dominant. A 35 second shot clock allows less gifted teams to control the tempo of the gam...

Notre Dame loves them some upsets at home. It is what it is.
It's not even really an upset, though (this year). Maybe by technical definition (#8 over #4), but it's not like this is an ND team that's in that mid-seed range that the Irish are often around. I think that's part o...

| More Sports Board|| re: IYO, which of the major sports is the most "fair?" Based on this criteria.. - Buckeye Fan 19 on 1/21/15 at 7:16 pm|
It's difficult because "fair" is different to different people. Some might say allowing more teams in the playoffs is fair. Others might disagree. Some might say having an earlier free agency is more fair. Others might disagree.
For example, you mention in your question No. 1 that the ability to ...
| More Sports Board|| re: Which pro or college team dominate the coverage in each state? - Buckeye Fan 19 on 1/19/15 at 11:33 pm|
ND is more of a national school than an Indiana school. ND identifies more with/has more of a presence in Chicago than Indianapolis and probably Fort Wayne. Indiana is definitely either Colts or IU bball, not ND.
I think North Dakota would probably be Sioux (is that still their name?) hockey. The...

The answer probably depends if you're a student/graduate or just a fan because of where you're from, your parents, etc. I'd think for most of the former, the "college" part is a really big deal, and probably the opposite for the latter....
