Re: Position changes

I never understood the concept of position changes, especially those that are like WR to LB or QB to D Back. These guys spent 4-6 years playing a position well enough to get a D-1 scholarship at that position only for coaches to try to re-package them into a position they have commonly never played...

Re: 2018-19 MVC Predictions:

That says Bradley is going to win 10+ Valley games. With that OOC, they are going to be completely unprepared for the first month of Valley season and will lose at least 3 games they shouldn't because of it. I can see them winning 9 on the high side, but probably more like 7-8. So do you agree with...

Why are you claiming this. What did you hear?
Maybe it’s what he didn’t hear. Dan did not mention him at all when mentioning the players. He talked about everyone else.

Re: Golf

Phil Mickelson is in the winner's circle for the 1st time in 4.5 years at the World Golf Championship in Mexico City. I'm glad for Phil. He's a class act on and off the golf course. I knew he still had it in him and it was just a matter of time. Thought I heard somewhere that he has a $10,000,000 w...

Re: 2018/2019 Ratings

LOL Illinois at 47. Get beeeeeent. The difference between these two "rankings" is off by roughly 30% of all of the teams in college basketball. I'm smelling an incredible amount of bias here. Out of the top 50, there are 5 teams from the non P6. 2 of them are Gonzaga and St. Mary's (who are both T2...
