re: What Are Your Thoughts About 8 Man High School Football - Ralph_Wiggum
The field in MN is narrower with 8 man. My guess is that we better get used to it since fewer kids are playing football. It may not be just a small school thing. ...

re: Chris Pratt blows up the MTV awards - Ralph_Wiggum
He was talking about the blood of Revolutionary War soldiers, Union soldiers, the blood of vets from WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and the blood of civil rights advocates and protestors. I don't think he was talking about the blood of confederate soldiers. God is a pretty universal term. Allah ...

re: White male doctors’ portraits to be taken down from honored spot at hospital - Ralph_Wiggum
[quote]Therefore all 31 portraits — some of which have hung in the amphitheater for decades — will be removed and rehung in scattered spots around the hospital, the Globe reported. [/quote] What is there to complain about? The portraits will still be hung around the hospital. They are not being t...

re: Would you ever want to own or buy a sports franchise? - Ralph_Wiggum
It would be awesome. If I owned the Saints, I'd spend enough to go 7-9, 8-8, or 9-7 each year. Just enough to get people to go to games and I'd threaten to move every few years to get tax breaks and stadium improvements or even a new stadium without paying for it. ...

re: Major League Baseball Sees a Sharp Drop in Attendance - Ralph_Wiggum
I've been to two games this year at Target Field because I got free tickets. I know where I can park for 6 bucks for night games and be close but when I have tix to a day game it's 13 to park in the same parking garage because the deal doesn't start till 4:30pm. Concessions are outrageous. It's 9...

re: Michigan football talk - Ralph_Wiggum
The main reason why UM has not met expectations is that the rest of the Big 10 including Michigan State has upped its game. The real period of UM dominance of the Big Ten or when they shared with Ohio State was from about 1970 to 1985. After that the other schools of the big ten like Michigan State,...

re: Ok State AD going after Gundy for not being a good recruiter - Ralph_Wiggum
Gundy is a great coach. If he was at let's say Alabama or LSU or Michigan he'd have top 10 recruiting classes. He's the best coach at Okie State since Jimmy Johnson. With so many football players in Texas you can recruit well and with a few breaks you can make the playoffs at Okie State. If the...

re: Do the Orioles have the worst future outlook in pro sports? - Ralph_Wiggum
I agree. The Washington Nationals made Baltimore into a small market club. You got Philadelphia to the North and Washington to the South as far as market goes. Baltimore lost a lot when the Nationals came, but I doubt they will ever more. ...

re: Pac-12 vs. SEC in the Las Vegas Bowl? - Ralph_Wiggum
A bowl game in Las Vegas could easily become part of the playoffs. I'd love to see Jerry Jone's Cotton Bowl get edged out by the Las Vegas bowl. Heck, I'd love t see the Peach Bowl get pushed to the side. Make it Rose, Orange, Sugar, Fiesta, and Las Vegas. Those are places people want to go to in Ja...

re: Dennis Rodman making a run at the "Most successful athlete at life" title - Ralph_Wiggum
Rodman has a compelling life story. He was a janitor at DFW airport when at 19 he was discovered. The crazy behavior with Rodman started after Chuck Daly left the Pistons. Daly and him were close and he lost a father figure when Daly left. Pretty clear that Daly leaving and his more crazy behavio...

re: MLB in discussions to end shifts - Ralph_Wiggum
I like the idea of teaching players to hit the other way when there is a shift, but the analytics folks also teach that home runs are more valuable even with the high number of strikeouts so the nerds are telling hitters to hit for power all the time and it's hard to hit for the power the other way...

[quote]I couldn’t care less, I just wish we played more. I wish LSU cup cake games were a rotation of Rice (with @rice stadium one time), southern miss, Tulane or la tech [/quote] I agree, but I would make it Rice and Tulane. We can win those games as cupcakes and they are good schools also. No...

[quote]What is LSU fans inferiority complex regarding Tulane, ULL, and ULM? Aside from Bama and their fans being scared of UAB, we love seeing our schools like Troy, USA, Jacksonville State, (and UAB for Auburn and non-Bama fans) succeed[/quote] It is because LSU fans are not betas. We are al...
