re: What does anthony grant have to do to keep his job? - wm72
It's really tough to guess how the AD is thinking about Grant. I would be tempted to say that he'd need to make the tourney this season but I'm also not too sure. I could see a decently strong finish, getting to 10-8 SEC 20-11 overall, making them very reluctant to pull the trigger. J...

re: What is or was your favorite player to watch play this beautiful game - wm72
Totti of course. Baggio was my favorite as a kid. Maldini as well. I also find myself drawn to the villainous, old fashioned, by any means necessary, defenders. I thoroughly enjoy watching matches featuring guys like Chiellini, Godin etc etc or defensive mids like De Rossi. ...

re: Ranking the SEC bubble teams - wm72
After the SEC not getting many bids due to being down for a few seasons, I could see the SEC getting limited bids again this year simply by having too many "pretty good" teams this year. If all 9 of the teams you mention continue their current uneven form it may be hard for more than 3 to get bi...

re: Giovinco to TFC on 7 million dollar a year deal. - wm72
Giovinco wasn't going to get anywhere near this type deal in Europe and he has seemed to prefer to not to play for a Serie A side other than Juve. However, I'm still surprise the deal actually went through. Toronto has a very large Italian American population which I imagine comprises a notab...
