  1. Take heart, weirdos who only want brand names in their basketball, Kansas, Villanova, and Duke are still around (for now).
  2. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    Next level tanking. I don't think we get more ping pong balls for point differential though.
  3. I feel like I remember seeing some study claiming that red teams win the most in sports, but I'd suspect that doesn't really apply to college basketball where seemingly all of the major programs wear blue.
  4. We get it, you can never be happy.
  5. I thought this would happen eventually with the one-and-dones taking a toll on a lot of major programs, especially when it comes to situational awareness and maturity. Never would have thought it'd happen to Virginia of all teams. I didn't really believe in Virginia as a legit title contender, but man, never saw that happening.
  6. Championship matchups you wish we got?

    Super Bowl XXXIII: We got the Falcons vs. Broncos, when the money match would have been the Vikings and Broncos. The Vikings went 15-1 in the regular season, Randy Moss was setting the world ablaze, and the Vikings set the record for points scored in a season. Maybe the Broncos still roll, and Elway rides off into the sunset, but it would have been interesting to see. I think the Falcons were like 14-2, so it's not like they're were some crap team that lucked out, but they just weren't as sexy as Minnesota that year.
  7. Championship matchups you wish we got?

    It was Favre's last year with the Pack, and for a moment seemed like his last in football. Maybe if the Giants had been bludgeoned to death in the Super Bowl it'd feel more like a missed opportunity. Kobe vs. LeBron seemed like it was a certainty. Maybe it was just the puppet commercials and the buzz around the possibility of that matchup, but it felt inevitable in the way the Cavs vs. Warriors has felt lately.

  9. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    That Sporting KC game was nuts. SKC was up 2-0 then gave up three-straight goals in 12 minutes. And then scored two-straight in a three minute span to win. That's five second-half goals. Plus, we're no longer on pace to lose every game 2-0 anymore.
  10. When the Sun Belt tournament was in Hot Springs, Arkansas they had two games running at the same time, but they were in separate rooms essentially. One was like a regular convention area with bleachers thrown in, while the other was a proper (if small) arena.There would be times you could kind of hear the other game going on, but nothing quite like this.
  11. Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    And I don't trust the fans to pick anything other than the one they assign the most fire emojis to on Twitter.
  12. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    Yeah, but Precourt doesn't know that yet.
  13. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    Just move the team to Little Rock. They pretend it's a great sports town (it's not) and the city leadership tends to be weirdly arrogant in all negotiations which in our case usually leads to things moving across the river to North Little Rock. Stick the Crew in Little Rock for a bit and even Precourt will wise up and figure out a real landing zone for the team and stop screwing around.
  14. NBA Changes 2018-19

    I've had the exact same thought. I wonder if the St. Louis Blues' existence would be an issue as well in such a hypothetical scenario. Also, as a kid, I associated jazz music with the Rocky Mountains and the Utah Jazz are to blame.
  15. NBA Changes 2018-19

    There were social media avatars that had the Grizzlies logo in black and gold, but nothing more than that. I wanna say it was for the fifteenth anniversary or so and that they did it as a season ticket promotion. I don't think there was ever any intention of it being more than that. EDIT: Beaten to the punch.
  16. NBA Changes 2018-19

    I'll take it over the proposed name of Express from when they moved.
  17. NBA Changes 2018-19

    The Grizzlies logo is a downgrade. It loses a lot of definition without the third blue and the gray outline does nothing for me. Going from three blues down to two and adding more drabness with a dark gray makes the logo blob-ish.
  18. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    My favorite team is on pace to lose every single game 2-0.
  19. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Why do teams keep insisting on dark numbers on dark jerseys, and exacerbate the problem by not even having a bright outline ? You can pull off gold, white, and silver numbers on dark jerseys without outlines, but you can't do that with a whole lot else. The Stanford jerseys posted earlier are a good example of why not to do that. I don't even like the dark numbers when an outline is used. What's truly concerning is that Jacksonville seems to have managed to downgrade from the neck down. The helmet was an all-time bad design that seemed to distract people from how bad the rest of the uniform was. I probably would have rated it a bottom 5 look in the league with a regular helmet rather than the absolute worst with the abomination helmet. So still not great.
  20. I really wish I had gotten into college football or basketball coaching. Hell of a racket.
  21. 2018 MLS Kits

    I really hate when sponsor logos don't adhere to the jersey's colors. The Youtube logo being in gold would have been spectacular. As it is, it's not horrible or anything, but it could so easily be better.
  22. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    I'm just glad we have a place for inane discussion like this that would normally get shouted down in other sports forums with "Who cares as long as [favorite team] wins!" as if you can't care about more than one thing at a time.
  23. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    Tradition evolved is wacky marketing speak that could literally mean anything, so I wouldn't read too much into it. Tennessee could come out with orange and green uniforms and say that it's "tradition evolved."
  24. 2018 MLS Kits

    I remember Philadelphia and New England wearing their clashes at home the first year SKC had that home set. Later on, both Philly and New England wore navy vs. SKC in their homes. Ended up being a better clash on the field than you would have expected. Probably helped that the back of the SKC jerseys weren't part navy like the front.
  25. 2018 MLS Kits

    Are you talking about the backs being blank? Because I think that's an MLS (and various other leagues) rule. Dallas back when they wore hoops for instance, never went all the way around and same goes for SKC's hooped kit from a while back. And when the US had those hooped kits, the back was blank for those as well, except on the replicas. Seems like it's totally fine in Italy though.
