I don’t think CBS was making that much money airing one game a week. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have needed to air 237 commercials every game to make money. Plus, they would have reupped if they were making huge profits on their SEC contract. They weren’t....

re: Strasburg continues to steal money from the Nationals. - Bench McElroy
Hindsight being 20/20, the Nats should have re-signed Harper and let Strasburg go along with Rendon after the 2019 season. An offensive core of Soto, Harper, Turner, and Schwarber would have been amazing. ...

[quote]"My gut reaction is in multiple levels," Shaw said. "First of all, Nick Saban is smarter than any 10 of us in this room combined. And so, there's no way that that was just a throw-in. It's obvious to me — Nick wanted to plant that and make sure people knew that. It's a great way to recruit pe...

re: West Virginia is a huge loser in this shuffle - Bench McElroy
At this point, West Virginia should ask for a Notre Dame deal from the ACC and go independent in football. If Notre Dame joins the conference, they’ll become the 16th football team. If not, they’ll at least have a stable home for their other sports program and they can cobble together a decent yearl...
