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...

I got on the wait list when I moved back from Florida in November 2009. I get e-mails for single tickets when the visiting team doesn't sell their allotment, but that's been it. Fortunately, I lucked into splitting a pair of season tickets with a co-worker last season, but I'm still hoping I get the...

I've said this in a few other posts about realignment - I think Notre Dame could be a decent Pac-?? fit. Get three other Northeastern schools to go with them for football only (Syracuse, Pitt, BC) and then these schools could join the Catholic schools that left the Big East for basketball and other ...

Probably their best best - do a Northeastern pod and add some combo of Pitt, Syracuse, UConn, Boston College. I think it's feasible as a football-only addition, since these schools could group up with the Catholic schools that left the Big East for Olympic sports....

I can't see them going past 14 teams for TV reasons. 14 would mean 6 games in the first round - noon, afternoon, and night slots on Saturday and Sunday. How do you fit 8 games in one weekend without overlapping or extending to Friday or Monday? Part of the allure of the NFL playoffs is every game is...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Outback Bowl Question - bigjuice56 on 11/25/12 at 8:27 am|
After the Cap One Bowl selects, the Cotton gets first pick from the West and the Outback gets first pick from the east. The Outback "could" choose LSU if A&M goes to the Cotton. However, the bowls do work together to some degree - so if Clemson is in the Chick Fil A Bowl, there's no way South Caroli...
