    Hey Guys

    2014-2015 NCAA football thread

    QUOTE (Soxbadger @ Dec 10, 2014 -> 05:34 PM) ? Since 1990 Wisconsin has had 3 head coaches. Bielema left because fans were pretty upset with him and prior to the Big10 championship that year there were rumors he was on his last leg there. Andersen is kind of shocking but it happens. I think that implication is rooted in speculation that the one who coached from 1990 to 2005 left shoes that are difficult to fill and thus has proven tough to work right under. I have no idea whether that has any validity to it, but I have seen the question raised by others (perhaps irresponsibly).

    QUOTE (NorthSideSox72 @ Dec 10, 2014 -> 12:53 PM) Show me this "law", because it makes no sense. DV arrests can happen well after the fact, and there is no per se requirement for hospitalization to occur. Those things I know. Beyond that, I see virtually no chance the law says anything like what you are saying here. But I am open to be corrected - show me. I know the law to be similar in Illinois; the police have extremely limited (if no actual) discretion. If there is probable cause to believe DV has occurred (a very low bar which is cleared even by "He said/She said"), arrests are to be made so that the courts, not the cops, can sort it out.

    QUOTE (RockRaines @ Dec 10, 2014 -> 11:33 AM) The details are the best, he was outside waiting for cops saying "one of my girlfriends is in there tripping and wont leave." PLaya And the Deadspin article implied he called the cops first; that's generally not the behavior of a criminal (other than a gangsta of luv).

    And "it" begins once again

    Victorious World Series General Manager Rick Hahn would be ok with me.

    Longoria & Will Myers

    Longoria is married to a Playmate. Ten years ago, the White Sox acquired Scott Podsednik, who also is married to a Playmate, and immediately won the World Series. Therefore, it is imperative the White Sox acquire Evan Longoria, so that they can immediately win another WS. I also understand that he happens to be kinda good at baseball, which can only be deemed a bonus.

    QUOTE (RockRaines @ Dec 3, 2014 -> 09:47 AM) I mean Imagine LSU coming up to Madison WI to play in December. Think of Bama playing in deep lake effect snow in South Bend. It would be AWESOME It would be beyond awesome, but like Hickory, I can't see it happening.

    2014-2015 NFL Football thread

    QUOTE (KyYlE23 @ Dec 2, 2014 -> 12:20 PM) i honestly dont think Rex Ryan goes back to DC. His name and history is probably going to get him another HC job(a la Lovie) I'm not convinced of that. He's coached good defenses, but pretty crappy teams. Granted, the NYJ are a clusterf*** management-wise, but I don' think he's done much to distinguish himself as a head coach.

    QUOTE (RockRaines @ Dec 2, 2014 -> 02:24 PM) Worst kept secret of all time. Now the question is how mad will the fans be where its not their first or second choice. You're referring to Harbaugh, I presume?

    How likely is it that we could replace Mel Tucker with Rex Ryan, and would it make a damn bit of difference?

    QUOTE (whitesoxfan99 @ Dec 1, 2014 -> 09:17 AM) The Nebraska and Michigan vacancies are irrelevant to Illinois. They aren't going to be hiring from the same coaching pool anyways. I didn't mean to imply they were in the same class or pool; they certainly aren't--but all Power 5 vacancies are relevant to Illinois, if for no other reason than "trickle down."

    QUOTE (Jenksismyb**** @ Dec 1, 2014 -> 08:45 AM) Unfortunately I agree. I just hope this isn't a Zook situation where we're stuck with him for 3 more seasons. It was "bowl or bust," so its the right move to keep him for at least one more year, made more so because Mike Thomas hiring in a market that has vacancies at Neb and MI would be an utter disaster.

    Beckman is bad. I don't think I've ever hated an Illini coach more. But if they somehow beat NW and make a bowl, than his team has achieved a goal and a reasonable measure of success and, maybe more importantly, over come adversity by finishing strong to do it. If that happens (and I don't think it will), he deserves to stay (shudder).

    QUOTE (StrangeSox @ Nov 14, 2014 -> 11:13 AM) good breakdown but I meant to ask how do the prospects for the 2015 draft look because the Bears should have a pretty decent pick. God, it sucks to be thinking about this in mid-November, but I guess its better than watching games. I don't know how these CBS lists are put together or by whom, but FWIW: http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/prospectrankings/2015/OLB http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/prospectrankings/2015/ILB http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/prospectrankings/2015/SS http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/prospectrankings/2015/FS

    2014-2015 NBA thread

    QUOTE (Jenksismyb**** @ Nov 12, 2014 -> 12:40 PM) I don't see why. The guy just went through two serious injuries that took him off the court for two seasons. He had a kid in that time frame. I guess i'm assuming this, but you have to think that's going to put your basketball life into perspective. Another serious knee injury and he's not getting a contract with the Bulls, or if it is one, it's going to be for a back-up role. The fact that he's thinking about his future, to me, means he's put things in perspective. He's not an invincible 20 year old anymore. He - gasp! - might change his game a little to ensure he's got a decent future. Again, isn't this something we all kind of want? That he's not so reckless when he plays? That he maybe avoids a little more contact than he used to? That he not play when it's not really necessary to do so? It's a reach because you're taking issue with those citing the quote as proof of his stupidity, yet citing it as proof of him having some kind of enlightenment. As you say, they both involve assumptions. To me, given his history of less than stellar PR moves, the former assumption just seems a bit more likely.

    QUOTE (Jenksismyb**** @ Nov 12, 2014 -> 12:21 PM) My God, the kid gained some perspective on his life. Again, the horror.... I understand what you've been saying in your previous posts, but this seems like a really big reach.

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Nov 12, 2014 -> 09:01 AM) It seems to be, but I don't think they are meant to be. I just think the guy is probably one of the nicest guys in the NBA, one of the most talented guys in the NBA, and in the team photo for least intelligent guys in the NBA. Sitting in the front and f***ing center.

    2014 Catch-all Anything thread

    Is anyone interested or intrigued by Wallenda's walk across the Chicago River this weekend? I am not hearing that much pub about it. I would love to go downtown and check it out, but will likely just tune in.

    Ironically, Thomas' top targets in both sports the last time were minorities, and Sumlin and Smart laughed in his face.

    QUOTE (Brian @ Oct 21, 2014 -> 10:28 PM) Can't believe that's her. In a way, I kind of feel bad for her. Not for having to endure all the public scrutiny of her appearance (that's invited and goes with the territory), but how messed up inside does she and the Bruce Jenners, Kenny Rogers, Michael Jacksons, etc., have to be do that to themselves?
