    QUOTE (whitesoxfan99 @ Jan 14, 2016 -> 07:32 PM) There really aren't any great teams in college basketball this year. This feels like one of those years where the tourney is wide open. I'm happy with this. Makes it more exciting.

    "Blind" Road Trip

    From Minneapolis, I could make it to Chicago. From there, I might be able to make it to Bloomington, IN, but one or two of the exits might throw me.

    Debbie just annoys me on Shameless. Carl could go either way this year. Will Sasso's short scene was hysterical. And there needs to be more Mickey. Noel Fisher nails it.

    QUOTE (RockRaines @ Jan 11, 2016 -> 07:21 AM) Hangover was bad. Expected a loss so it wasn't bad on that front. Great time. Front half of our conference schedule is the easy part, so we have to pick up as many wins as possible now.

    QUOTE (whitesoxfan99 @ Jan 7, 2016 -> 08:59 PM) It is legitimately hard for me to remember Illinois being good at this point. 10 years of s***ty basketball. f*** Groce, Weber, Guenther and Thomas. Garbage all of them and the amount of money those 4 asshats made is remarkable. As an outsider, Guenther seems the most culpable.

    QUOTE (bmags @ Jan 7, 2016 -> 04:30 PM) In the Kim anderson era, mizzou is 3-29 against power 5 opponents. Against power 5 opponents this year, they have been down 20 points at least once in ever game. That's an impressive level of awful.

    2015-2016 NFL Thread

    QUOTE (Chisoxfn @ Jan 4, 2016 -> 05:34 PM) Evidently Pace indicated he wants to build around Jay. Part of me wonders if that isn't him propping up his trade value longer term (in case he sees another guy / piece open up). Either way, I see no better options for next year and agree with the general consensus to focus on the defense and oline. Forte evidently had a lot of nice things to say about Jay as well. If Pace sees a QB he likes in the 2nd-4th round range, I'd be fine with developing a guy a year or two while Cutler still starts.

    Projecting the org depth chart for the minors

    QUOTE (NorthSideSox72 @ Dec 28, 2015 -> 03:52 PM) Fry is on his 2nd TJS. At this point I'd be shocked if he became a prospect again, of any sort. His career is in jeopardy. You really can't make it about age that simply for Alvarez. He's definitely a prospect for me, probably in the teens in this system. A good performance in AA is huge, as it's the biggest leap for hitters. If he does well there (continues OBP/AVG strengths, and solidifies defense a bit) and hits Charlotte during 2016, then he's on the board for a potential role with the big club in 2017. And he'd be what, 26 in 2017? Old, but by no means absurd.

    The Republican Thread

    QUOTE (KyYlE23 @ Dec 29, 2015 -> 05:59 AM) Having an affair isn't quite the same thing as treating people of the opposite sex as inferior people, Greg. I'm not excusing Clinton, but I don't think you understand the word despicable if you can easily apply it to Hilary and don't think it fits with Trump If anything was going to bother me about that situation, it wasn't the affair -- that's his business. It would be that he lied about it under oath. But I also expect politicians to lie when convenient.

    The Republican Thread

    QUOTE (StrangeSox @ Dec 28, 2015 -> 01:32 PM) 29% of voters liking someone else does not imply they would like a John Kasich-Bob Casey ticket. Two guys who can barely get any support on their own don't combine into a credible challenge to front-runners. Doesn't Rasmussen almost always bias slightly towards Republicans in Presidential polls? That's the reputation. IIRC a lot of the people stunned by the 2012 election were discounting 538 while following Rasmussen.

    2015-16 NHL thread

    QUOTE (Tony82087 @ Dec 23, 2015 -> 11:19 PM) I believe if you file retirement papers, the team is no longer obligated to pay any committed money. Now that is where it gets a little tricky because you would assume the Hawks probably worked something out with Hossa when the deal was signed. Once he is retired and no longer a member of the organization, is there anything stopping them from paying Hossa 4 million dollars in one lump sum for a random autograph signing? I know it's crazy, but teams do a bunch of crazy stuff to circumvent the cap. It's why those types of deals are no longer allowed in the NHL. This is why I like baseball contracts. If a guy signs a 5 yr/$100 million deal, he's going to get $100 million, even if cut. Simple.

    The Democrat Thread

    QUOTE (Jenksismyb**** @ Dec 23, 2015 -> 03:34 PM) According to quick google researching, under Tennessee law she had up until 16 weeks to go to an approved clinic and get an abortion. She waited another 2 months and then tried to do it herself. And Roe doesn't protect her. It's a viable fetus at 24 weeks. Not sure on access to clinics in TN, but if this is a case of "she had to nowhere to go" I have a big issue with the charge.

    2015-16 NHL thread

    QUOTE (Tony82087 @ Dec 23, 2015 -> 10:53 PM) Yeah, I don't see it as a bad deal at all, YET. When it was signed, the key was always if he retires after the 2016-2017 season. As many know, in the final 4 years of the deal, Hossa is scheduled to make one million each season, but obviously the cap hit stays at 5.275. I still think it's sort of trending that way, that he hangs them up after that season is over. If that happens, the deal was an absolute home run. If he hangs around when he is 38, 39, ect, they have a huge problem. So if he retires after 2016-17, do the Hawks pay him $1 million per year still, but have zero cap hit?

    2015 Catch-All thread

    QUOTE (iamshack @ Dec 21, 2015 -> 07:57 AM) So some crazy woman from Oregon driving with a 3 year old in tow drove on to the sidewalk of the Strip near Flamingo, which is one of the busier areas. The blood results are not yet in but she showed signs of severe impairment. Killed 1 and injured 36. Woman Drives into Crowd on Las Vegas Strip Jeez, didn't realize she had a 3 year old in the car with her. What a piece of s***. Surprised only 1 died.
