re: Men's Soccer, Women's Gymnastics, and Beach Volleyball - tmc94
Back to the question at hand, soccer viewers skew quite a bit younger. "In 2012, the poll determined soccer was America's second-most popular sport for those aged 12-24, ahead of NBA, MLB and college football." (ESPN research) "A Pew Research Center study in January [2014] found that 40 perce...

Meh, that's a fairly antiquated view. This is actual data from last week Pacers/Warriors, 2.0m viewers (ESPN) Heat/Raptors 1.3m (ESPN) [b]Man City v West Ham, 1.25m (NBC)[/b] Bulls/Lakers 1.1m (TNT) Knicks/Raptors 1.0m (TNT) Certainly the NBA gets a lot more airtime right now (NBC only ai...

[quote]Maybe it beats regular season NHL games, but regardless it doesn't make a dent compared to other sports. [/quote] I'm guessing you don't know much about soccer and that's cool but this graph is horribly deceptive. It's like using a Cowboys-Redskins regular season game as the basis for fo...

[quote]In 50 years soccer will have replaced football for top men's sport.[/quote] maybe so. But that doesn't mean college soccer will be. I think it ends up being like baseball tbh. The best go straight pro and the rest get a college education. That's okay and I'm 100% for the SEC adding socce...

Vanderbilt has now beat UF and us in the last two SEC games and their RPI is up to 54. They've won 5 of 6 in league play and are starting to play like the preseason favorites with 2 NBA first rounders that they are. Right now, I'm thinking the SEC may very well sneak 6 in the tournament....

re: Dave C out? - tmc94
I don't think those stats are very meaningful outside of context. DC's problem is not his coaching ability but that he can be very difficult to get along with. He had to go. Doesn't mean he isn't a good coach and there is no reason to slam him on the way out. But he's very highly thought of i...

re: Dave C out? - tmc94
What's weird is DC was let go at the same time as Spav in December. His wife knew. They sold their house before the new year even. No idea why she is blowing up now. They've had 2 months to come to terms and not be irrational. I'm not 100% sure that they aren't bat shite crazy though. ...

Yep. When Kyler threatened to transfer in December, both the football team and baseball team packed his shite and left it outside the lockerroom so he didn't go back in.....before he publicly announced he was leaving. ...

[quote]2 halves is retarded.[/quote]for reals. I much prefer three halves like in hockey What is the difference between a 20 minute half and two 10 minute quarters? Just the forced timeout?

per [link=(http://www.rpiforecast.com/teams/Texas%20A&M.html)]RPI Forecast[/link]. Slightly different probabilities but 2nd number is predicted RPI for those interested. Last year the top 8 in RPI got the 1-2 seeds. SMU is a wildcard obviously this year but RPI was very important to seeding 2...

[quote]I fully expect USC to fall down a few spots with their next 2 weeks [/quote] really don't know what to make of SC. They've yet to play a top 50 RPI opponent on the season. That's a little hard to believe at this point. The SEC has 3 others (us, UF, UK) and they still have to play us all but ...
