re: Today in 1973 the DH was adopted in the AL - SoDakHawk
[quote]Pretty sure the rosters are still 25 and 40.[/quote] Meant to say salaries. Good, versatile bench players are more valuable in the NL and will demand more $$. DL in the AL puts a limit on the bench player's worth....

re: Today in 1973 the DH was adopted in the AL - SoDakHawk
The NL game involves a lot more strategy. It also affects how you construct a team. Your players need to be multi-talented enough to play multiple positions so managers can run double switches and other strategies at the end of the game. AL game is so boring. In fact, what is the role of bench...

re: Is Saban the entire cause of the "we have the wrong coach so we can't win" attitude? - SoDakHawk
Really happy? I would say a large portion of the Iowa fanbase is satisfied. We've had back to back 20 year head coaches. Kirk is still able to string together special seasons like he did two years ago with an undefeated regular season and coming within a foot of the CFP. Pulls out one signature ...

re: Is Saban the entire cause of the "we have the wrong coach so we can't win" attitude? - SoDakHawk
To answer the OP, it's because expectations have changed due to ESPN and the rest of the media's emphasis on the CFP and National Titles. Who is #1 is all that matters now and every other program that doesn't win a NC sucks. It used to be that the goal was to win your conference and get to the R...

re: What would Urban Meyer do with Nick Saban's talent? - SoDakHawk
MSU won the BIG and was in the CFP just 2 short years ago. Dantonio has done a heck of a job there, better than Saban did. MSU beat PSU this year and holds the lead in the series 16-15-1. I'd say that MSU is everything that PSU is....

re: CFP Director Bill Hancock: CFB Playoff expansion is not in the cards, need unanimous vote - SoDakHawk
[quote]Why? It's not like they willed UGA over Oklahoma or Bama over Clemson. Those games happened. Not much you can do about that, except Choklahoma and Clemsoning are back. [/quote] You think any of that matters? People aren't going to watch. Northeast, Midwest, Mountain and West, we've ...

That guy will change his tune once the ratings for this consolation championship on Monday come in. It's gonna be bad. They are going to be that stubborn to stick with this farce until 2025? They are going to drive the sport right into the dumpster....

re: Complaint about RR that was filed with the AZ Atty Gen office - SoDakHawk
It doesn't make any sense. The environment at the athletic department was so horrible she allowed her daughter to go work there? Her husband had a job with the D-Backs and they could have left, easily had a way out, but stayed and now they are looking to relocate to Phoenix? Her claims don't make...

re: How effective would a college player protest be earn wages? - SoDakHawk
[quote]Would likely destroy college sports as we know it. Most schools outside of power conferences wouldnt be able to financially compete and would probably have to drop to D-1AA football and NCAA may have to create a lower division for D-1 basketball too. Football is extremely profitable but very ...

re: Complaint about RR that was filed with the AZ Atty Gen office - SoDakHawk
Read it, came off as totally made-up If her claims are true she should be able to produce some hard evidence like the Hideaway Book, pics, texts, and other concrete proof. I would imagine if even a 10th of what she claims is true that independent law firm that did an investigation and found nothin...

re: Nebraska Football - The Future - SoDakHawk
Why? There has always been competition in this conference. What is one more team? Frost is a good coach and Nebraska will do better but the expectations are crazy. First, the spread is not going to work there. If Frost brings that spread O and no defense to Lincoln he won't be successful. An...

re: Nebraska Football - The Future - SoDakHawk
All this talk about Nebraska taking over a weak Big Ten West, that they should only lose 2 games, blah, blah. Maybe they should focus on us puny teams before taking on OSU. Iowa has absolutely curb stomped the Huskers the last several years. We don't plan on letting that change. ...
