    2015-16 NHL thread

    QUOTE (soxfan49 @ Nov 29, 2015 -> 01:45 PM) Agree. My only concern now is getting more from guys like Shaw, Garbutt, Teuvo, Kruger, Kero, etc. Hossa has been playing well, the Anisimov line is on fire and Toews is Toews. Right now it looks like the scoring depth isn't there. I like what I've seen from Kero. Hoping he can find another gear and be a substantial contributor, but the early returns are promising.

    Got the bucket and going bowling! Hoosiers! Saw lots of projections for the Foster Farms Bowl.

    QUOTE (He_Gawn @ Nov 25, 2015 -> 07:45 PM) This Tom Crean collapse is so epic to watch. We looked awful in Maui. Hey, beat Duke in Cameron and I'll forgive Maui! A kid can dream...

    IU looked awful against Wake Forest, especially on defense. Just brutal on the defensive glass. Please blow out St. John's.

    The Democrat Thread

    QUOTE (StrangeSox @ Nov 18, 2015 -> 09:03 PM) http://www.cafe.com/compassionate-refugee-cause/ It's like a cocktail of a little hilarious, a lot of predictable and just a dash of "goddammit."

    Caught a little bit of the Illinois game, first I've seen this year. Except for the missed put-back at the end, that Finke looked pretty decent.

    White Privilege?

    QUOTE (raBBit @ Nov 17, 2015 -> 02:30 PM) Can't believe Black Lives Matter is still relevant. After they started blocking highways, causing disturbances and making Bernie Sanders apologize for saying "all lives matter" I though that would have just about done them in. Media loves controversy and racial injustice. A 24 year old black man, Jamar Cook, was shot in the head by police Saturday night. Protesters blocked I-94 in Minneapolis on Monday night, and they've been camping out in front of the local police precinct. Some witnesses say Cook was handcuffed and on the ground when shot, police say he was not handcuffed. Video hasn't been released yet. City asked FBI to conduct a civil rights inquiry. Who knows where this will go.

    We should emulate Sweden

    QUOTE (Alpha Dog @ Nov 17, 2015 -> 04:30 PM) I could go for eliminating Swedish Fish... You know, I'd be ok with this. I always think they'll be more satisfying than they are, and then eat one and it's just...meh.

    Terrorist attack in Paris

    QUOTE (Jenksismyb**** @ Nov 18, 2015 -> 04:15 PM) So basically the "if you see something, say something" mantra is a bunch of nonsense and we shouldn't do anything. This mantra is terrible. All it does is make it easier to bend to the will of a security state, which is far more damaging than any perceived terrorist threat. And the incompetence and hypocrisy displayed in this thread, and by the governors of the numerous states claiming they'll ban Syrian refugees. The harm caused by treating all Syrians, or all Muslims, as a suspect class is greater than that caused by admitting the refugees. These views are absurd and would be laughable, save for the very real policy changes they effect. bmags said it well somewhere earlier in this thread, no one seems to understand the total hypocrisy that we're just being dicks to the rest of the world and when the trouble comes to call we just padlock our doors and yell "Sorry, not home! You take care of this one!" It's not like this is new, today it's Muslims and 30 years ago it was Communists. Time and time again these isolationist scare tactic policies prove their failures, but we never learn.

    QUOTE (Chisoxfn @ Nov 18, 2015 -> 07:42 PM) I agree with you on homeland. Really been good. Probably because Carrie has been bearable and likeable. Crazy Carrie was normally a detriment to the show in my eyes. I feel like now, where she is the primary but far less the primary, makes for a much better show. Agreed, bringing others to the forefront is key. And there can never be too much Quinn.

    This is my favorite season of Homeland so far. Two shows starting in January I'm looking forward to: Billions and Vinyl.

    QUOTE (Buehrle>Wood @ Nov 14, 2015 -> 07:03 PM) Indiana best 0-6 B1G team ever So frustrating. Now we have to win on the road against Maryland and Purdue for a bowl game. We should beat both teams, but shouldn't have our backs against the wall like this. Bottom line is we just had to stop that last drive, and then that 4th and goal, but couldn't do it. QUOTE (Brian @ Nov 14, 2015 -> 03:47 PM) Refs I'm Bloomington blow as well. Shocker Come on now, you're smarter than thinking the reffing was biased towards IU.

    2015-16 NCAA Football Thread

    QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Nov 7, 2015 -> 06:07 PM) Indiana the best 0-5 Big Ten team in many years, and Sudfield a very effective QB. Gave Iowa their best shot...were in the game until the final Iowa first down on the Beathard run. Coleman had a really nifty td catch on fourth down. I just want a bowl. Definitely possible with Maryland and Purdue as the last two games. Today was the first Big Ten game where both Howard and Sudfeld were healthy the entire game.

    ESPN's article on the deadspin piece today was laughably/sadly predictable. It postured it as deadspin just releasing photos of the girlfriend's injuries, and was using a bunch of pictures of Hardy and her looking happy as a couple.

    The Republican Thread

    QUOTE (NorthSideSox72 @ Oct 27, 2015 -> 06:31 PM) Did you seriously just go on a rant about people wanting a Clinton or a Bush, and then ask where the Kennedys are at? I wish we step through a wormhole and see what happened if JFK served a full 8 years followed by 8 for Bobby. No idea what would have happened, but it's a damn safe bet they wouldn't be remembered as fondly as they are now.

    QUOTE (Joshua Strong @ Oct 26, 2015 -> 05:48 PM) I'm at least competent at what I do and more importantly I'm not an asshole. I don't think that will be happening to me anytime soon. Competent, nice people don't get fired all the time? What world do you live on?

    2015 Catch-All thread

    QUOTE (Chisoxfn @ Oct 27, 2015 -> 03:11 PM) Doing it on an off day is disgraceful and distasteful. I've seen enough from your posts to see how you approached it and how you got kicks out of it. Pathetic. If you had any class, no matter how busy you were, you'd say at the end of the day (better yet at the beginning), we need to talk (and by the way...he shouldn't be surprised to have this conversation either as you should have already given him the feedback that he needs to step up / improve in X / Y / Z). This is so important, and not just in this situation. You should never learn anything new in a review. Otherwise, that's poor management.

    I liked what I saw out of Hinostroza, but he'll be back up at some point this season. Excited to see what Kero can do.

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Oct 26, 2015 -> 12:00 PM) Homeland's best episode maybe ever. That's saying something. What a fantastic episode. Quinn is the best character the show. Now that Justified is off the air, I'll have to find a new candidate for "best character on television" to replace Boyd Crowder. Quinn is up there.
