Re: SH Omnibus Sports Megathread

Topic 3: New NFL Rules The biggie is the new numbering rule, allowing offensive skill position players minus quarterbacks to wear any number 1-49 and 80-80, DLs to wear 50-79 and 90-99, LBers 1-59 and 90-99, DBs 1-49. Quarterbacks and kickers are still restricted to 1-19. Tom Brady is upset about t...

HBCU Coaching Move

Southern HC Dawson Odums has left to accept the same position at Norfolk State. That's a bit confusing to me, as I would have considered Southern and Grambling to be the premier stops in HBCU Land in terms of public perception. Could this move (along with the presence of The Neon One at Jackson Stat...

Re: SH Omnibus Sports Megathread

Oh. I see what happened. Instead of conducting a separate tournament like the other confederations did, UEFA decided to use the World Cup as their qualifier, and France's loss to USA in the QFs doomed them, as the three remaining UEFA participants punched their tickets (GBR, SWE, and NED). Can't be ...

Yes, I admit to being a dork, JMU. Heck, I still refer to North Dakota as the Sioux, the Washington FC as the Redskins, Memphis as Memphis State and Towson as Towson State. You shouldn't sound so surprised that a guy fixated on the mid-'80s Cowboys and mid-'70s Reds still hangs on to old names, dude...

Re: Here We Go Again (Columbus, OH).

There seems to be a lot of confusion about this one, particularly given the fact that one girl called 911 because she was being jumped, a bunch of adults jumping in and then backing off, and the fact that this happened on the day the Derek Chauvin verdict was announced. There also seems to be confus...

Try wins over then-21 South Dakota, then-#10 UNI (both of those on the road), a win over then-#10 SIU. Particularly given their struggles during the abortive fall season, this improvement is something phenomenal, 89....

Re: Playoffs

SW Missouri State is also on something of a hot streak. That may have factored into the committee's thinking, particularly since the COVID-influenced scheduling was highly MVFC-centric for them, at least once the spring season started.

Re: The First Since Danica!

Editorial denouncing NASCAR's nebulous system and positing a new system with clear, publicly known requirements similar to F1's SuperLicense system. Other issues they note is the exclusion of Davison before a race, and the inexplicable inclusion of former Daytona winner Derricke Cope, who at 62 hadn...

The Final Four is showing three timing and viewing options, so those games are really up in the air: 0900 PT on ESPN, 1700 PT on ESPN2, or 1130 on ABC. The previous rounds all seem ...

Re: Alex Smith Retires!

Agreed, 88. Sure, I'm stuck in the '80s, but I do recognize class when I see it. Smith didn't throw a hissy fit when he had to endure a string of one-and-done offensive coordinators all with different systems that didn't take advantage of his unique talents, but stood above it all, and even emerged ...
