re: Zags/Baylor/Michigan or the field? - hoopsgalore
[quote]The Gonzaga fan boys make me LOL.[/quote] Far from a "fan boy." This may be the first topic on MSB that I've ever discussed Gonzaga. Wisconsin fan, through-and-through. Don't care for the Zags one way or another. [quote]Wow great context. All REAL powerhouse blue bloods with no menti...

[quote]Not really. If you consider the Sweet 16 "advancing".[/quote] Uh... yes, getting to the Sweet 16 is advancing. Your implication that getting there is easy, which is far, far from the truth - Zags are the only program to get there each of the last five NCAATs. ...

[quote]Is that gonna hold up when they play a FSU, Alabama, Texas, or one of the many power 5 teams that are loaded with athletes, and much quicker and longer than they're used to?[/quote] In the five NCAATs, Gonzaga has been to the Sweet 16 five times, Elite Eight three times, and a National Cha...

re: Zags/Baylor/Michigan or the field? - hoopsgalore
I'd take these three over the field, for sure. Speaking of Gonzaga, Jalen Suggs is fun to watch. He's from Minnesota, so always followed him closely - he was a four-star QB, too. His HS basketball team last season was loaded - they featured Suggs, Chet Holmgren, couple four-star football play...

[quote]Lincoln is a shite hole. Campus included. This coming from someone who has spent far too much work travel to there in the past few years [/quote] I like Lincoln... :dunno: By no means is it a great city, and my exposure is limited to CFB Saturday only, but it was clean, well laid-out, a...

Loyola, for sure. Very good defensive team (No. 1 KenPom) that controls the pace + still has a couple contributors, including Cam Krutwig, from their Final Four team a few years ago....

re: NBA Black Hole Destinations: Ambivalence and Location - hoopsgalore
[quote]Milwaukee[/quote] Brand new arena, rising franchise, and a city that has undergone heavy redevelopment over the last 10-15 years. I'm no Bucks fan, but Milwaukee is a great city these days - ton of bars along the river, redeveloped district around Fiserv, diverse neighborhoods (i.e. Lower...

[quote]Minnesota[/quote] Weather aside, Minneapolis is a pretty great city... :dunno: Plenty of nightlife for a younger demographic, especially an NBA player. The University of Minnesota has 50K students and there are a number of Fortune 500 companies, including Target, that attract a very l...

[quote]There used to be a really great Target, don’t know if it’s still there.[/quote] Target is HQ'd in MPLS. Guessing you may be thinking of the store in Nicollet Mall. It is one of the better ones I've been in, though I wouldn't go out of my way to visit :lol:...

re: Minneapolis recommendations - hoopsgalore
North Loop, Uptown and Northeast are the three neighborhoods to be for bars/restaurants. If you want to relive college, head across the river to Dinkytown :lol: I think bars/restaurants can seat up to 50% indoor capacity right now. Have plenty of friends that live in Minneapolis. Cold as hell rig...

re: Post your favorite Thursday Night CFB memories - hoopsgalore
My dad and sister went to Boston College, so I've always had a soft spot for the Eagles. When I was a freshman at Wisconsin in 2007, I watched Matt Ryan come up in the clutch to lift No. 2 BC over No. 8 Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. It was pouring rain. Such a fun game to watch....

re: Is this odd? Rental Owner offered me to pay with Venmo/Paypal and cancel VRBO Booking - hoopsgalore
This isn't uncommon - I've known people go this route numerous times without issue. However, if you aren't booking through the accredited website, there is risk for losing money altogether. VRBO/Expedia won't be able to help you recoup any loss. I've always been more risk-averse, so if it were me...

re: Most lopsided CFB rivalries* that feature two decent programs... - hoopsgalore
Wisconsin is 22-3 in its last 25 games against Minnesota. They lead the overall series 62-60-8, which gives you a sense how much Minnesota dominated, like, 100 years ago. :lol:...
