I think you always have to make an impression on your wife's/gf's parents when you meet them (unless of course they're not in her life anymore). When I met my wife's parents, I was quiet and polite. Ultimately, I don't think they like me very much, but they live 5 hours away so it's not that big o...

Based on your definition of "new offenses" I wouldn't say Florida, Texas or Oklahoma were "traditional offenses." So in answer to your question, it looks to be about the same effectivness.
Simply put, the teams with the best players and the ability to fully utilize their talents generally win th...

Reduce the shot clock to 30 seconds. Hopefully it would lead to some better offensive production and end these brutal Big 10 60-55 games. Also, do we really need 14 timeouts per half (5 per team + 4 TV timeouts)?...

This. It's baseball. Over the course of 50+ games you're going to lose here and there. LSU lost by one run, on the road, facing the opponent's #1 starter, while throwing their #3 guy. I wouldn't jump off the bandwagon just yet. I...

I like Colston. He is without question intergral to the Saints' success, but personally I'd lean more to saying he is a bit overrated (too many fumbles and drops). No one outside of NOLA talks about Moore, yet all he does is make even the toughe...

Nevertheless, we live in a different day and age where just about everybody has cable TV and CBB has lost some of its luster from the 80's and 90's. May not have been as lucrative for CBS to show...
