    $35M in funding guys!!! The NFL gave $35M!!! https://apnews.com/1e1b99a9602c4b73959b6c94dd163b4f Wait, just $40M?
  5. Stanford@Cal postponed to December 1 due to poor air quality. https://calbears.com/news/2018/11/16/football-big-game-rescheduled-for-saturday-dec-1.aspx

    2018-19 NBA Season

    Nice of you to listen to numerous podcasts yet not to look at previous post or any NBA news since Tuesday. Matt, just like with the Cowboys, I got you.

    Salaries don't nearly matchup, so Lakers need to add more likely expiring contracts. That may undermine not just the starting 5, but the playoff bench. KCP would likely go*. *-I haven't done the money. KCP also has a 15% trade kicker

    2018 NFL Season

    They will fall .5 games behind the Falcons/Cowboys winner and will fall to 9th in the NFC at best, 10th if the Iggles can win in the Superdome (unlikely). Cardinals, Jets, & Lions look to be wins, but that only take them to 7 wins with the other three games being ATL, @MIN and @CHI.

    FYI, Friday's Binghamton/Northwestern game on ESPNEWS will have Kornheiser and Wilbon on the call as it's a game with their alma maters.

    2018 High School Football

    The Camp Fire in Butte County, CA forced a week long postponnment of both CIFs Central Coast Section and North Coast Section games from last week to this week. With air quality becoming worse, they're trying to play the games as south as possible. Chico and south is currently the worst air quality on the planet. https://www.paloaltoonline.com/news/2018/11/15/ccs-football-cross-country-moved-to-the-salinas-valley
  12. Long and Miles crosses paths at Michigan when Long was Asst. AD and Miles was OL coach. Long was in L.A. early this week, so many think he was talking to the agent for Rams coach Jedd Fisch.
  13. SEC is getting ready for bidders on the CBS portion, which expires after the 2023-24 season, but that's all they have as the ESPN/SEC Network portion of the inventory is under contract through 2034.
  14. Yes, it is aligned with the College Football Playoff contract, but three years more than the current B1G TV contracts with ESPN and FS1.
  15. Not that they will not revisit the issue, but was considered back in May and many AD's were on record, however in August, they released schedules for 2022-2025 with nine conference games

    B1G has ten teams in the KemPom Top 40 and 12 in the Top 50. That's more than any other conference. The ACC has more Top 30 teams (7-6). Since the RPI is gone, road wins are getting more emphasis. And Villanova lost their top 4 scorers.

    The Sports Media Thread

    At the 1h 18 minute mark, when discussing the talents/qualities needed if two successful athletes had a sports lovechild, it was Gladwell who said, "we're engaging in the most reprehensible form of genetic generalizations, nonetheless". Yet Simmons was very eager to got back into that bear trap saying, "No, I'm just thinking what's the best blend of those two parents."
  18. Well, Earlham College didn't make the Division III Playoffs this season and won't next season as after a 53 game losing streak and only having a 42 player roster, the school won't play in 2019.

    I just checked USC's Academic Calendar and they're in session on Monday. At least some faculty and students won't be on campus, so I guess they might as well play...if the Air Quality is within range.

    2018 NFL Season

    AT&T Stadium has three artificial surfaces: Cowboys, College, and soccer. However, laying down plywood on an already uneven, damp surface then a turf over it would be something which the NFLPA would not accept either. The double whammy is the air quality of Los Angeles if the game is moved to the Coliseum. Since both have their BYE and won't play again until December 2, they could play in Los Angeles on November 25 but it would be less than 24 hours after Notre Dame@USC.

    Caris LeVert broke his leg. YouTube at your own risk. He was really playing well for Brooklyn.

    The France family is definitely looking to take on a partner for NASCAR as they look to buy back the outstanding shares and take ISC private.
