The Big 12's not going to go all CUSA and expand into a third time zone. West Virginia joining essentially killed them expanding westward. I think If they were to expand, it's going to be some combination of Cincinnati, Memphis, USF, and UCF....

There was no need for 5 state champions, much less 9. Personally, I'd like 1 championship that all schools play for - but that's not likely. At the very most - 3 divisions, a super division for powerhouses, Large School, and Small School....

I say we go WR first round, if for nothing more than Carolina's sitting behind us with Tavares King currently pegged as their #1 receiver. Fills a need and sticks it to a division rival - I'll take it....

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Hypothetical Future on Jimmy - bigjuice56 on 3/2/14 at 10:12 am|
The whole "He's a WR" thing is a ploy by his agent to get Graham more money than Gronk's recent contract. If Graham is viewed as a TE, he can't and won't get more than the 6 years, 54 million Gronk signed for. And he shouldn't get that because even though they're equals in the passing gam...

Like others have said in here - south is the way to go. When I moved there in 2010, I was told the same "stay south of Congress" by multiple people. I had an apartment at Chateau Des Lions, which is across the street from the mall. Asides from the traffic being horrible, it was a great place to live...
| More Sports Board|| re: Is re-seeding each round the best playoff format? - bigjuice56 on 1/5/14 at 8:12 pm|
A couple of things to ponder:
Does the NFL keep the re-seeding format when they eventually expand the playoffs to 14 teams?
Is re-seeding really fair to the #1 seed in the current format? Had Philly won, they would have played Carolina and Seattle would have gotten San Fran.
What I'd like to s...

Years back, I played one through a guy at work that knew a guy. Being young and dumb, I decided to pick 10 games because you still won money on 9 out of 10. Hit the first nine games - last game I took the over in a San Fran-KC game. Hit it by a point when Dante Hall ran a punt back for a TD with 2 m...

I still don't get this - you now have 3 backup outfielders (with Gattis playing some LF) and Pena to backup 3 infield positions. Couldn't we have got an equal return for Reed Johnson? I don't see how you give up on a 25 year old lefty power hitter like Francisco. ...

I used to live a little over an hour away. It's a good way to spend an afternoon. It's in the Wide World of Sports, so there's always something else going on in the facility. Pretty decent gift shop and your standard ballpark food. Plus, the game's over at a decent time and you have plenty of option...
