The decision to stop play is not made by the home team. We can blame the umps on this one, as usual....

So there is no "school specific" coverage, not even digitally? That means tier 3 has been eliminated in the SEC. Definitely bad for the fans, but I guess good for the schools. All of this, so that I can now watch a UGA vs Missouri women's volleyball match!...

[quote]SECN requires every school to give up 3rd tier rights. This will be good for the conference, and probably not so great for anyone who is a "die hard" fan of a non-revenue sport.[/quote]
Each school gives up their 3rd tier rights, but what about the financial compensation? ESPN controls al...

PM said today that he was thinking about the regional, and who he would like to throw against the 4 seed in the 1st game. McCune came to mind, since he can throw strikes, and has the experience of being a Friday starter. In order for that to happen, he needs to stretch out McCune's innings, so tha...

He does have a lot to learn when it comes to reading pitchers, but I don't think that he is very quick off of the line. He's fast, but takes a couple of steps to get up to speed. He takes a long stride, which allows him to cover a lot of ground in the outfield. The two times that he's been thrown...

It is possible, but certainly hasn't been announced yet. The schedules will change next year if they change some of the permanent opponents. It has been discussed that Ark. will pick up Mo. and A&M will get USCe. Missouri had to play at A&M 3 years in a row. Two years ago as part of the Big 12, ...

You did a nice job of making it look natural. I have to point out that the discussion on this topic always seams to focus on the 1500 or so regular seats. Smalls refers to them as the only actual seats. This is just wrong. The stadium club seats and even the suites have "seats" that are not behi...

The cargo door at the rear of the plane drops down to the ground and serves as a ramp for loading and unloading cargo.

I also think that Gerry did some good things at LSU.

Mark Emmert not only spent the money to get Saban, but he gave Saban the money to hire a qua...

Even though he had a winning record at Notre Dame and Curley didn't have a single winning season, I think that Gerry Faust is the worst hire in D1 history. He was the equivalent of a younger J.T.

I think in general it's a top 15 job, but there might be some extenuating circumstances. Usually you need a strong AD in position to make the hire. That way, the incoming coach knows that someone will have his back and will do whatever it takes to make him successful. That was not the case at LSU...
