    Yep. That's the one. It's original enough to stand out on it's own, so why not use it.

    I don't believe they would get knocked out today, but they need Nigeria to beat Iceland to have a better chance of moving on, An Iceland wins means they would need to make up the -3 goal difference in the win over Nigeria AND have Iceland lose to Croatia. A Nigeria win means all they need to do is beat Nigeria and have Croatia beat Iceland.

    I think the Tennessee State concept works. They have a semi original word mark to use... so, why not use it?

    Charleston Southern comes to mind for me.. that is such a simple and boring look there. Same for Canisius

  7. It's that time again, folks. The Road to Omaha begins with the announcement of the regional hosts. This year, the seeds have been expanded from 8 to 16, meaning that each regional host will be seeded in this year's tournament. Now, for the regional hosts. -Arkansas -Clemson -Coastal Carolina -East Carolina -Florida -Florida State -Georgia -Minnesota -North Carolina -North Carolina State -Oregon State -Ole Miss -Stanford -Stetson -Texas -Texas Tech A northern site for the Regional round... nice. Also cool of them to give Stetson a chance to host the regional.

    Welcome aboard, man. Just don't be upset if I have to throw you off the wagon when they hit their usual summer swoon.

    Looking at the groups, Group D looks like (on paper, anyway) to be the best group. Argentina is probably going to win the group, but you can easily make a case for the other three teams to take second place.
  10. Come on Vegas! Spoil this moment... make @Crabcake47 wait for his moment!!
  11. The Super Regionals are set now. Here's the match ups... Friday-Sunday (14) Minnesota at (3) Oregon State: The Beavers are old hat at this point. Oregon State ran roughshod through their home regional, which including two drubbings of LSU. Next up for them is Minnesota, who is making their first Super Regional trip. The Golden Gophers do have history, but that was over 40 years ago. They had no issues at home. (11) Stetson at (6) North Carolina: The Tar Heels did their part in Chapel Hill, which included a 19 run explosion against Houston to earn this trip. Now, they face the red hot Hatters. Stetson is running an 18 game winning streak into this Super Regional after rolling at home. Washington at Cal State Fullerton: In the most unlikely match up of this round, you have two #3 seeds squaring off. Washington, making their first trip to this round, did it with offense in Conway. Now, they face a veteran of this round in Fullerton, who is making their 14th trip in 16 tries since the format was introduced in 1999. The Big West champion Titans took down Number 2 seed Stanford twice on their home field to earn this trip Mississippi State at Vanderbilt: One of three series that pit the SEC against each other, this one wasn't likely early on after Mississippi State got clobbered by Oklahoma in the first round 20-10. Then, the Bulldogs got a miracle.. A walk off three run homer against Florida State kicked started the engine. Wins over Samford and Oklahoma twice has the Bulldogs in this round where they face conference foe Vanderbilt, who owned the Clemson regional so much that the 14th Amendment was nearly invoked because of them. Saturday-Monday Auburn at (1) Florida: The top overall seed had to survive a rag tag Florida Atlantic team and weather playing havoc in their regional, but the Gators did their part and moved on. Now, they host conference foe Auburn. The Tigers took advantage of NC State dropping the ball against Army and swept through the regional. Duke at (9) Texas Tech: Athens was one of the regionals where the weather played havoc with and no one seemed to be more affected then Duke. After flopping hard against Troy, it looked like the Blue Devils would be '2 and Q' against Campbell. But then... something clicked. The Blue Devils exploded for 11 runs to send the Camels packing. Wins over Troy and twice against Georgia has the Blue Devils in new territory as they face Texas Tech, who went through their regional with no issues South Carolina at (5) Arkansas: The last of the SEC showdowns has the Gamecocks and Razorbacks meetings. South Carolina had no issues, save for the weather, in their road to this round. Same for Arkansas. Tennessee Tech at (13) Texas: The Longhorns took care of business at home, but they had to survive a bit of a scare from hard charging Indiana to go on. Now, they need to be very, very careful. The Golden Eagles have the most wins of any team left [52] and bring in the best offense in the nation, something that was showcased last night as they swept Ole Miss in Oxford to get here.
  12. Super Regional match ups are getting set as there are a few games left. Here's the recap of yesterday. Super Bound: 11 teams are heading into the Super Regional part of the tournament after yesterday's games. A few of the match ups are set as Washington, who ran roughshod through the Conway Regional, will face Cal State Fullerton, who makes their 14th trip to this round in 16 tries. The other two matches are between seeded teams as 11th seeded Stetson will face 6th seed North Carolina and 14th seed Minnesota heads west to meet 3rd seed Oregon State. What's Left: Five regionals remain on the final day. This includes the Athens and Oxford regionals, which have had rain cause havoc through the weekend. Same for Greenville and Gainesville. Tallahassee, on the other hand, is the only one where we have a winner takes all match up between Mississippi State and Oklahoma. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Television wise... ESPN2 1 PM - Mississippi State vs Oklahoma (Tallahassee Regional - Winner Takes All) ESPNU 1 PM - Georgia vs. Duke (Athens Regional - Regional Final) SEC Network 1 PM - Tennessee Tech vs. Ole Miss (Oxford Regional - Regional Finals
  13. Another day complete in the Regional round. Here's a recap... The Fallen Fifteen: 15 teams got knocked out yesterday. The numbers include 11 #4 seeds, 3 #3 (Northeastern, whose showing in Raleigh gave fans of the teams that missed out a good dose of schadenfreude; Ohio State, who lost on a walk-off against Walk-Off Wilmington; and San Diego State, which laid a large egg in Corvallis) and 1 #1 seed... Florida State Flameout: The 7th seeded Seminoles got stunned in the opening round by Samford, there were fans who were concerned and some that were not worried. I mean, it was Mississippi State, who gave up 20 runs to Oklahoma in the opening round. For the most part, the Seminoles did there part... and then the rain came... after the rain, the Bulldogs had one last shot. With one swing, the Seminoles lost the game. 'D' is for (Scoreboard) Destruction: Duke and Dallas Baptist would wreck the scoreboards in their games. The Patriots, normally a Division II school but plays D-I baseball, dropped 19 runs on Oral Roberts, knocking out the Summit League champs. Duke, on the other hand, had to sit and stew after losing to Troy and waiting for the Campbell-Georgia game to see who they would play. Early on, the Camels would catch Duke off guard early.. that was before Duke realized that they're Duke and erupted in the 9th for 11 runs in a 16-8 romp over the Fighting Camels. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- As for television today... ESPN2 12 Noon - Mississippi State vs. Samford (Tallahassee Regional - Elimination Game) 3 PM - Indiana vs. Texas A&M (Austin Regional - Elimination Game) ESPNU 12 Noon - Georgia vs. Troy (Athens Regional - Winner's Bracket Game) 3 PM - Northwestern State vs. LSU (Corvallis Regional - Elimination Game) Other Games are TBD

    The World (League) According to Neo (2002 Grey Cup)

    The teams in Canada were the toughest the split into three even divisions because the large amount of teams out east. With an incoming expansion franchise in either Halifax or Quebec, it gives you an easy East Division with Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and the expansion franchise... but this means moving Hamilton into the Central Division with Winnipeg and Saskatchewan. One of the relocated teams (in this scenario, New York/New Jersey and Salt Lake City have both relocated) would be in Thunder Bay, Ontario. It's a good central location to help bridge the two western teams with Hamilton. Out west, you have British Columbia, Calgary, and the other relocated team. You may need to look into the Vancouver suburbs for another team here.
  15. Day 1 is in the books... here's a recap. Stunners: Two #1 seeds fell last night as Florida State got stunned by Samford and North Carolina State got shocked by Army. Stanford and Clemson had to go to extra innings to survive their scares. Opening Game Fireworks: Being the first televised game of the day, Oklahoma and Mississippi State provided the fireworks as the Sooners won 20-10, giving people reminders of the days before the new bats came in. Ugly Openers: For some teams, it was ugly. LIU Brooklyn, making it's first trip in over 30 years, got welcomed with a 16-1 manhandling by Coastal Carolina. North Carolina would also win big against an over matched North Carolina A&T team. Rain, Rain Go Away: Rain washed out the first day in Oxford and forced the second game in Athens between Campbell and Georgia to be pushed back. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For those looking for games on television, here is today's action. ESPN2 12 Noon - Florida State vs. Mississippi State (Tallahassee Regional - Elimination Game) 7 PM - Texas vs. Texas A&M (Austin Regional - Winner's Bracket Game) 10 PM - LSU vs. Oregon State (Corvallis Regional - Winner's Bracket Game) ESPNU 12 Noon - Ohio State vs. UNCW (Greenville Regional - Elimination Game) 5 PM - Oklahoma vs. Samford (Tallahassee Regional - Winner's Bracket Game) 8 PM - Louisville vs. Texas Tech (Lubbock Regional - Winner's Bracket Game) 11 PM - Cal State Fullerton vs. Stanford (Palo Alto Regional - Winner's Bracket Game) SEC Network 12 Noon - Campbell vs. Georgia (Athens Regional - First Round) 7 PM - Clemson vs. Vanderbilt (Clemson Regional - Winner's Bracket Game)

    You would think of veteran like J.R. Smith would know the difference between your team having the lead and the game being tied. That was one hell of a brain cramp there.

    DON'T JINX US! Seriously, please don't... As a Mariner fan, there needs to be good news in August for once other then "When does Seahawk season begin?"
  19. I think what Vegas has done is create, in essence, the sports equal to what I have dubbed 'The MK2 Effect'. What is that? Well, as a gamer, when a game does well, it warrants a sequel. Such was the case for Mortal Kombat. When the sequel came out, it was far bigger, better and badder then the original. The bar was set... problem was that any sequel after this game would have to not only reach the bar, but go over it. The sequels after 2 would fall short time and time again. It wasn't until MK9 where the game and the series got over that bar. What does this have to do with Vegas? Well, the Golden Knights are setting the bar so high for the next expansion team in the NHL that it's nearly impossible to clear the bar save for, I don't know, winning the President's Trophy or going 82-0-0.
  20. Happy that U-Dub made it. Funny that they play the other Huskies in Conway. Usually when it comes to these type of tournaments, I love to look at the mid-majors and there's two to me that stand out: Stetson and Tennessee Tech. The Hatters have a Top 16 Seed and had they not blew the OVC Championship, the Golden Eagles might have joined them there.

    Oh... didn't realize that. Still, LeBron has just about everything a player of his caliber could ever want: MVP's, All Star appearances, multiple championships, records. What else is there for him to do?

    2018 NBA Post Season

    I would prefer to see Houston-Cleveland in the Finals, but if it's Warriors-Cavaliers Round 4.... then I'm fine with it. The NBA is pretty much a superstar driven league and this match up is a ratings bonanza for them. Hell, having Houston in the finals could have the same effect because of Harden. Fact of the matter is this... LeBron is that good. He has been in 8 straight NBA Finals. That is a record that may never be broken. Enjoy this now because once the Finals and the Draft ends, the only thing that is going to matter is if LeBron decides to either stay put, go elsewhere or (what I think he should do) retire on top as a champion.
