[quote]A lot of people like to make fun of them yeah. The fact that you're having to split hairs to make it sound less worse shows that you know it's true.
I'm not splitting hairs at all. Why do people actively make fun of ND? The answer is because they dislike ND (aka "care"). Nobody'...

Well-reasoned post per usual, Baloo. I generally agree. One thing you said is what's kind of having me unsure:

Ohio's system is strong. My junior year we went 7-3 and didn't make it in. That's pretty rare, normally 7-3 will get you in, with an occasional 6-4 team (or even 5-5 depending on if the team has some great wins) making it, but I think that's the way it should be....

Jackets are really starting to fall out of it. Yes, it's early and yes there have been some horrible injuries. But it's not like this team, even when healthy, is the Blackhawks. It's going to be pretty difficult to get back into this thing if they drop another two or three straight before Bob/Dubi c...

Sweet, and I know of three people who took at least one semester off for personal reasons who all came back, two more who were gone for a semester (not sure if just suspended or actually expelled and had to re-apply) for a violation and came back and zero who left for a semester for a non-criminal o...

When I played high school (whether it was football or lacrosse), I was always more comfortable playing at home. I could get into the same routine pre-game, felt familiar with my surroundings (idk if "sightlines" is the right word to describe, but kind of like that) on the field, was more used to the...

There's also a difference between a team like Navy and an FCS school. One of them you actually need to take time to gameplan for. For example, A&M played ULM last week. Is ULM "good"? Obviously not. But you do have to prepare for them and at least take a minor physical toll. That's not going to happ...

[quote]This doesn't answer your question but when Greg Maddux pitched for the Cubs, they purposefully cut the IF grass a LOT higher than most parks to slow hot grounders down and keep more balls in the IF. Notre Dame did this as well under Lou Holtz and Bob Davie. To slow down the teams with a decid...

I know the OP is in jest, but it is a decent point when made.
I'll also add the one thing in particular I don't like about baseball playoffs (which isn't applicable to other sports) is you can manipulate pitching rotations/bullpen usage, which you can't do in the regular season. Kansas City might...
