re: Hypocrisy of those who denigrate Dale Brown's accomplishments - therick711
In those fans' defense, it didn't help that Bob Knight took the kind of shot he did at him in 1987. :lol:...

You're not really defending the Mardi Gras Miracle, are you? :lol: The last two minutes of that game may have been the most poorly coached I've seen this side of Johnny Jones against NC State....

[quote]Absolutely. I still don't know how we blew that. I will say this though, I've never seen two teams get so hot in all of my life. LSU was draining every 3 in the first half and it was coming from every direction. Then UK caught the fever in the 2nd half...still should have never blown that lea...

Brown's career was very good. He is not beyond reproach though. The Mardi Gras Massacre and Miracle both would have brought this place down. :lol:...

re: Elderly military man brings 1960 Rolex to Antique road show - therick711
I'm sure Rick would be willing to give him $15,000 for it. He has to have it inspected and cleaned up, put it in a case, have people at his store, take all the risk, etc....

re: Your unpopular sports opinions - therick711
[quote]The love for that movie fascinates me [/quote] It's one of the few movies that celebrates the bully team with no sense of sportsmanship that runs up the score to further embarrass the overmatched underdog. It would be like making Rocky 4, except the Russian whips his ass, then takes a bre...

re: Bill Simmons thinks he owns "the trade value column format" - therick711
[quote]I liked the 30 for 30s and Grantland.[/quote] Fair enough. As to 30 for 30, my explanation is that sports documentaries are 1) in his wheel house (sports); 2) inherently interesting without featuring Simmons's opinion; and 3) even if you disregard 1 and 2, they aren't Simmons forward so t...

re: Your unpopular sports opinions - therick711
Soccer would be great if: 1. You had less people on the field. Let's say six a side; 2. You made the field smaller. Let's say 200' x 85'; 3. You gave them sticks; 4. You put them on ice; and 5. You gave them skates. ...

re: Sous vide shrimp - therick711
[quote]But why? Shrimp takes 2 seconds to cook and I don't see how sous vide would improve it in any way.[/quote] People boil shrimp all the time. Do you object to submerging shrimp in water that is less than boiling? If so, why?...

re: Bill Simmons thinks he owns "the trade value column format" - therick711
My take is he is the E-Myth and Peter Principle personified. What made Simmons famous was his writing. Now that rarely gets done, and many have lost interest in his ventures because of it. He wants to be more than a writer, but no one is in to his other concepts....

[quote]I'm sure that will be the way it's portrayed by him, but it just doesn't read like a joke at all.[/quote] It doesn't have anything that would alert you that its a joke. It isn't topical, there isn't a clear punchline, he doesn't have a history of busting Jonah's balls on the net. In fact...

[quote]i used to listen to his podcast religiously. but he got more and more full of himself, to the point it was just painful to listen to.[/quote] Bill Simmons is a classic case of guy with opinions on one subject that make him popular, believing that his opinions on all subjects are marketable...
