[quote]Yes, we have an excellent athletic department. A lot of success in all sports with the exception of football.[/quote]Honest question: Would you trade that for an exceptional football program (at least 10 wins every season) and mediocrity in all other sports?...

Can? A bunch of teams. They've been pushed to the limit a few times this year by mediocre teams. The right team on the right night could beat them in the craziness of tourney.
Will? No one. First time since Indiana in '76....

Sitting here flipping back & forth between UVA/Cuse and Baylor/Texas (goodbye Rick). It's a perfect example of something many have stated all season long. The CBB game itself is just plain bad. Yes, UVA plays great defense but the offensive execution is just terrible for most teams across the nat...

As a Cowboys fan, Peterson in a heartbeat. Murray has had litany of dings over the years that have kept him out of games or limited his usefulness. I'm very grateful for what he did last season but almost 400 carries on an oft-inured back is bad news.
Peterson on the other hand is a genetic f...

Even with all the improvements & breakthroughs of the medical field over the past decade, a big man with a chronic foot injury is still a major freakin cause for concern. Hoping that KD can get right and be ready for one hell of a Western Conference Playoffs but I fear he just won't be right this s...
