| Soccer Board|| Has anyone been to a PSG match in Paris? - nvasil1 on 12/14/14 at 2:36 am|
I have tickets for the PSG-Montpellier game on December 20th and was wondering if anyone has recommendations for a place near the Parc to drink/eat on matchday.

It's on the side of the hip on their new unis. Probably why it's not visible in that pic.
Ohio State switched back to the traditional sleeve stripes too. Looks like they only have the block O on ...

[quote]I believe the White Sox had 26 BS last year. Robertson, if he pitches like he has been, should be able to cut that number down by 6 or 7. Samardzija should be good for an addition 5 or 6 and LaRoche around 2-3. If it's not a 15 game swing, it's going to be pretty damn close which should pu...

Absolutely. Jim Thorpe's team-issued Canton Bulldogs blanket isn't bringing people through the turnstiles like it used to. :lol:...

The HOF has been a lot better in recent years about including modern day things like OBJ's jersey. It's what a lot of fans want to see.
I've been to the HOF around 30 times over the years and it used to just be the o...

If Baylor wanted in, they should've beaten WVU or scheduled better OOC. If TCU wanted in, they shouldn't have blown a 3 TD lead to Baylor. And they both still had a chance to make it had a couple of the...

Neither did Baylor.

:lol: Yeah I've been arguing against TCU getting in this entire thread.
I'm just against the idea that Baylor and TCU can't share a title when they played the same conference schedule and finished with the same record.
TCU has no room for complaint since they blew a 3 TD lead in the 4th qtr...

Technically we both were over the entire conference season. That's why Ole Miss got to hang a banner.
The head-to-head tiebreaker was needed by the SEC to send a team to the conference championship game. That didn't apply ...

I did last week. And Bowlsby said that would only apply for their Sugar Bowl rep. The playoff committee could choose who they wanted.
Bowlsby might be an idiot, but he was smart to not push Baylor as their sole playoff representative if the opportunity existed for both Baylor and TCU to get i...

Not really. The head-to-head game was just as meaningful as the other conference games. At the end, they both finished with the same record.

[quote]Use the criteria set out by the committee and craft and argument for TCU. You have to use SOS, head-to-head, and conference titles, and somehow put TCU ahead of Ohio St, who won a full share of a title, and Baylor, a team TCU lost to. Don't make up your own criteria, use the committee's. Thos...

Jeff Long said the margin between 3 and 6 was already razor thin. You need to forget about the previous rankings and 5 days ago. That doesn't matter in these final rankings. And yes, wins against ranked teams will be valued above a win over a 2-10 team, regardless when the games were played....
