  1. 2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    If the committee was actively trying to get Ohio State in, don’t you think it would rank Ohio State ahead of Notre Dame right now?
  2. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    FourFourTwo has the scoop on the NWSL’s FC Kansas City folding / relocating to Salt Lake, with RSL’s owners buying the club / an expansion team. I said this on Twitter earlier, but I’m going to roll my eyes every time from here on out that Sporting KC tries to argue that Kansas City is “Soccer City USA,” given they had a chance to keep women’s soccer in the community and, after years of talking about maybe kinda being interested in NWSL, decided to balk. Hate to see any team move or leave a market, but I’m of the opinion that the women’s game is better off with more ambitious ownership. This takes the league to the four sides that are owned alongside MLS clubs (Houston, Orlando, Portland, Salt Lake), plus North Carolina, whose owner is also particularly committed. It will be interesting to see where the league goes, now that a majority of owners are willing to spend more.
  3. International Football 2017-2018

    UEFA's qualification setup is absolutely horrible -- Italy have a good group stage, but because the FIFA World Rankings are awful, were drawn in the same group as Spain. They should've never been subjected to the playoff in the first place (which, to be fair, they should have done better in).
  4. Division 1 College Conference Realignment

    Not entirely sure who it would be, but since we're guessing things, I do believe that Grand Canyon is currently the only for-profit school in D1.
  5. Indiana Pacers New Uniforms, Alternate Logos

    It's a branding hit in the city and state they play in, but sure.
  6. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    CFS is great. Ordered from them a few times; it’s my favorite store on the internet.

    Classic Football Shirts ends up with player issue, sponsorless RoI shirts from time to time, and they have some now, most recently from the Euro 2012 set.
  8. 2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    I think there's a decent chance a 12-1 Georgia makes the playoff if Notre Dame runs the table to finish 11-1, but less so if ND ends up 10-2 or worse. You could be left with a situation where you're choosing between ND, TCU and Georgia (for example) for two spots, and ND's resume would be better than TCU's, which is better than Georgia's, but UGA beat ND. I would be very intrigued to see how the committee would handle that. UGA's existence as a potential 12-1, non-SEC champion is the only thing that keeps me from feeling supremely confident about an 11-1 Notre Dame being a playoff lock. Also, if Alabama loses the SEC title game, they will not have a particularly strong resume -- their best possible win would be a 10-2 Texas A&M, but it seems more realistic their best wins will turn out to be 9-3 and 8-4 fellow SEC West teams that aren't going to be ranked in the top 15. It would be very neat to see Alabama's scheduling habits come back to hurt them.

    Alright, now you made me sad.
  10. 2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    There is a decent chance Notre Dame would end the Pac-12’s playoff hopes with a win over Southern California on Saturday. I don’t think USC is that good, but I don’t see how a 12-1 Washington or Washington State gets in over other one-loss major-conference programs. That said, there’s a lot of chaos left to play out.
  11. 2017 High School Football

    Indiana has six classes, for (crucially) just over 320 football-playing schools. We would've ended up at six anyway -- because Indiana has a bunch of super large high schools -- but pushing past 320 and 64 per class helped drive it. It's 32 in the largest class, X in the second-largest, and 64 in the smallest four, with "X" being the number of schools that are left (right now, 37). Also crucially, every school makes the playoffs in Indiana. Championship games are played the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving at LOS in Indianapolis.
  12. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    I would love if the women ended up keeping those for the World Cup in 2019, but you know Nike'll release another stupid kit instead.
  13. International Football 2017-2018

    Hard, hard disagree. The World Cup should be contested by the 32 best nations. You cannot argue that only five of the best 32 are in South America. And, on that thought, CONMEBOL had six spots in the previous World Cup. Five of those six got through to the knockout stage, including a team that wouldn't have made the tournament (Uruguay) if Brazil had to qualify.
  14. Names below the number

    I've always liked it when applied well, and think that women's basketball jerseys look better with names below the number, just because of the cut of the jersey -- and with where men's basketball jersey cuts are going, I wouldn't be surprised to see that at least become a little more of a trend. German soccer teams also often put the player's name below the number, but that's because they also display the team name on the back of the shirt.
  15. NHL 2017-18

    I think the optimal Jackets stripe pattern is just a bolder, two-color red/white stripe — it’d match the pattern on the jerseys, but also be more visible. I do like the way this set translated to the new template a lot better on-ice than I thought I would, though.
