  1. College Basketball 2017-18: Road to the Alamo

    Well... looks like you know what has hit the proverbial fan
  2. PyeongChang 2018

    So, how about them Germans? Who would of thought that it would be them against 'Russia' in the Men's Ice Hockey Gold Medal Game?
  3. NCAA Division I FCS Concept Uniforms

    The honeycomb gradient is a neat idea for Delaware State... I just wish the hornet logo is on the helmet instead of the 'State' logo.
  4. 2018 NFL Offseason

    Is he even worth that kind of money? I know that they went 5-0 with him as the starter, but that much money is going to cripple the Niners if they bungle this.
  5. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    So, now that Nick Foles is the MVP, doesn't he get a new car or something? Also... Nick Foles is the MVP and the Eagles are Super Bowl Champions. Let this sink in... There are fans in Dallas, New York and Washington probably cursing up a storm right now.
  6. Hmm... that could be either Louisville or San Francisco there.
  7. I like how nice and simple they look. Being a brand new league and all, you don't want your teams to look extremely gaudy to begin with.
  8. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    Exactly. Miami has been planned to join for at least a few years. So it's down to Sacramento, Cincinnati and Detroit and I think that Cincinnati would be the favorite here.
  9. Solar League Baseball - A Future History: 2523 Sesaon

    That makes sense. In fact, you could name the leagues after famous people who founded the Space UN and explored the system.
  10. Solar League Baseball - A Future History: 2523 Sesaon

    Hmm... How about Inner System and Outer System? You can can easily shorten them to IS and OS.
  11. I like where this is going... here's a few ideas from me... As for teams, I'm thinking of these six cities: Boston, New York City, Chicago, Kansas City, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Why these six cities? Well, you have two out east, two in the central region and two out west. This works in even way to assure that everyone can get a chance to see these teams. Nickname and colors for each team: -Boston Crimson (Crimson, Black and White) -New York Blues (Blue and White) -Chicago Wind (Sky Blue, Red and White) -Kansas City Bulls (Brown, Red and White -San Francisco Dragons (Old Gold, Red and White) -Los Angeles Stars (Yellow, Midnight Blue and White)
  12. Ooh, an alternate universe where the NFL doesn't exist... color me interested. Do you have an idea of where the first six teams will be located?
  13. USFL Alternative History: 1985 to...

    If I was any one of the four bids that lost out (you forgot Kansas City there), I'd keep my eyes and ears open for an opportunity to take a franchise and relocate it. Each team that lost on the expansion bidding have their own strengths and weaknesses... -New York City probably has the best plan in terms of stadium and finances. They came awfully close to being the other expansion team, so in my mind, they're number one with a bullet on the list of locations for teams that would relocate. The only issue here is with Philadelphia and New Jersey. Fans of the Generals may love the idea of an NYC based rival, but I have to think the owners don't. Probably the same with the Stars. -Miami is technically a brand new market, so having a team there would be great since it's not known how well the Marlins and Panthers are doing in this alternate universe. The only bad thing is that Florida is a hit or miss for the USFL. Tampa Bay and Jacksonville have survived, but Orlando faltered. -Kansas City is also a new market, so there isn't much to fear in terms of stepping into someone else's territory. But, since it is a new market it might be a challenge. Unlike Miami, the Heartland hasn't really experienced the brand of football the USFL brings. -Orlando is at the bottom for a reason. They tried once with the Renegades and the Great Recession pretty much ruined them.
  14. Beginning of the end of Arena Football League? (again)

    The Arena League got too big for it's own good and it kind of blew up on itself. Now, it's a regional league with all four members in the east. In fact, more regional leagues seem to be the way to go for indoor football, if you ask me. It keeps costs down when you don't have long cross country trips to pay for. There are exceptions in certain leagues (The IFL, for example, is concentrated in the Midwest, but they do have the Arizona Rattlers, who are far outside of the region). Still, I don't see the Arena League lasting too far longer until they can find a way to make it into a regional league that can help keep costs down.
  15. Beginning of the end of Arena Football League? (again)

    Uh, technically they don't. They're taking a "break" from the IFL (read: not coming back)
  16. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    I'm wondering if all the magic from the walk off touchdown sapped everything from the Vikings, because they're getting hammered hard here. Oh, and if it ends up being New England vs. Philadelphia in the Super Bowl... it works out. It's the best two teams overall facing off. Granted, Wentz won't be playing, but you want the best teams in the biggest game, am I right?
  17. Beginning of the end of Arena Football League? (again)

    It's not going to be Firebirds, so I don't really care.
  18. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    New England in the Super Bowl yet again... whoopdie-freaking-doo. I just like to think that Jacksonville crumbled under the pressure. They'll be back sooner then later, if you ask me. As for now... Go NFC winner! Shut all those godforsaken Boston fans up!!
  19. USFL Alternative History: 1985 to...

    Realignment shouldn't be too hard. The Eastern Conference gets 14 teams and the Western Conference gets 16 teams. New England is in the Northeast Division and Seattle is in the Pacific Division. Easy, right? The hard part might be if the owners are willing to do this OR go with a 15-15 plan. The two expansion teams would stay where they are, but there could be a conga line of changes to help make this work. There's a few easy ones like Arizona going to the Southwest Division and Birmingham to the Southeast Division. But, now comes the problem: Who do you move from the Southwest Division to the Great Lakes Division and then, in turn, who do you move from the Great Lakes Division (and in turn, the Western Conference) to the Gulf Coast Division (and the Eastern Conference)?
  20. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    Here's a weird but serious thought: Who the hell is the backup QB for New England if Brady either gets hurt or can't play?
  21. USFL Alternative History: 1985 to...

    For the Boston slot, I'm taking the Sea Devils. This is because they have the best overall theme of the three teams. The other two bids are aren't as strong in my opinion. Not to mention that the television deal didn't exactly say that the Boston team had to play in Boston. Having this team split their games between Boston and Hartford would be the best way to unite the region. As for the other slot... It's between Kansas City and Seattle.

    1. Ganymede City: With Jupiter being the weaker of the two original expansion franchises, this is an opportunity for Ganymede City to come in take advantage of the current woes of the Jupiter team. The casual fan will come in right away to see them, but holding them is a different story. As for nickname...well, as a center of agriculture, why not Aggies? I know it sounds college like, but with the right visual identity it could work. 2. Cythera and Cyprus: After the failure of the first run, it's high time to look at the Twin Cities of Venus. The Sparrows are having some, but not a great amount of success. This is could be the perfect time to come in and challenge the Sparrows. Nickname wise... well, in honor of the area's breathtaking views, why not Sky? 3. Titan City: The plan has been to expand farther out and this is as great of a chance to take advantage of a city that is willing to support a team. Nickname wise... well, let's get the obvious out of the way. I don't like Halos or Rings because it's boring. Since it's a city in a desert, why not something that lives in a desert... like, say, Scorpions? 4. Kennedy: Lake Armstrong may have all the momentum here, but Kennedy has one massive advantage over Lake Armstrong: Kennedy doesn't have to share anything with the Apollos and in case you haven't notices, Luna has become the team to beat.. As for nickname... I like Lakers.
  23. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    Jacksonville's win makes sure that the entire nation doesn't have to see Tom Brady make the Yinzers his bitch once again. That gets old after a while. Even better yet, it really makes me want to see Jacksonville win because New England.
  24. 2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    I was wondering why Kirby Smart was learning from the Andy Reid School of Choke Jobs. That was bad... not as bad as 28-3 or 21-3, but still bad. Alabama was consistent all season long, that's why they got in and they won it all. The committee did the right thing... now granted, there is some beef with UCF being 14-0. But, until the system expands (if ever), this is what you're going to have.

    I'm wondering who will get the bigger boo's in Atlanta on Monday night: Alabama fans or Donald Trump.
