re: King Richard trailer - Will Smith biopic of Richard Williams - Bench McElroy on 7/29/21 at 5:53 pm
[quote]And he has a pretty fantastic filmography. It's just that he specialized in blockbusters for a decade and a half (which was intentional), and then hasn't made much of note for the past decade as I said above. But he's a pretty gifted actor when he tries IMO. [/quote] Smith has a good fil...

re: CBS lost the most in this - Bench McElroy on 7/29/21 at 5:25 pm
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....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: 2019 was the last year of real college football - Bench McElroy on 7/29/21 at 2:21 pm
I read a post on Reddit that made a really good point about the current landscape of college football. College football in the '60s to early '80s was actually way worse than it is now. Teams had unlimited scholarships and only blue bloods like Notre Dame, Bama, OU, USC, Michigan, Ohio State, Texas, ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: So if expansion is not on the table, what becomes of the Big 12? - Bench McElroy on 7/28/21 at 11:45 am
I saw an article speculating that the TV payout in the Big 12 might drop to as low as $9 million per school. It's just not a viable power conference without OU and Texas. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Strasburg continues to steal money from the Nationals. - Bench McElroy on 7/28/21 at 7:13 am
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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: West Virginia is a huge loser in this shuffle - Bench McElroy on 7/26/21 at 7:42 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
