  1. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    I know it's among the least significant moves today and it'll probably be curtains for his career in 3 months, but I am so excited for D-Wade to be back in Miami. (...not to mention these):
  2. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    All Star teams! Wish they'd at least publish the draft order. Not as even as I'd hoped for, but they never try that hard anyhow.
  3. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Per the team's Twitter, Georgia will be wearing the home reds. Love the decision to roll with the obvious uniform choice instead of overthinking it with the recent success in white (or god forbid, a blackout). However, the patch sucks. It makes the jersey too busy and the date just feels off. I get that the calendar flipped, but the game caps the 2017 season and the winner will claim the 2017 national championship. Would rather just use the stylized trophy/football without the numbers.

    2011 Bama-LSU led to the cry for the playoff being answered. I think every SEC fan believed that a playoff would only increase the likelihood of an all-SEC CG. An 8 team wouldn’t fix anything. Please look at the rankings this year and come up with an iron-clad 8-team field. It’s impossible. There are 12 teams this year that have an argument to be included. The playoff isn’t a reward for having a good year, it’s a system of determining the national champion. That should be a highly selective group, not an everyone’s-welcome crapshoot. 3 teams in the final 8 of this year’s rankings are in the SEC. Expand the field to 8 and you almost always will have at least 2 SEC schools included. I’ve never bought into the idea that a UCF, Boise State, Hawaii, NIU, or whomever else had any real claim to being among the top 2 teams when we had the BCS. Sure, they could pull off a win against a better team. I always question the team’s motivation and preparation for the prospect of playing some second tier opponent for the sake of taking home a meaningless bowl trophy. Maybe a team that goes undefeated deserves a shot. I thought this year would have been a good year to try it out because there was no clear-cut power 5 team for the 4 seed. But when expanding to 8 teams, does anyone really believe that that kind of team is going to rattle off 3 consecutive wins of that magnitude? I’d hate to see the effect of an 8 team playoff on conference championship week. It’d turn it into a version of NFL Week 17 where half the teams can pack it in and give themselves a bye. Anyhow, on a more personal note, how bout them Dawgs? That was the best game I’ve ever seen, despite being sick over it for one reason or another for 4+ hours. I know most of the country hates the matchup, but I’m excited to play Alabama. It wouldn’t feel complete to win the SEC and the playoff without ever facing Bama. Here’s their shot. Go Dawgs!

    I’d jump all over saying Ohio State would be a complete waste of a spot if I hadn’t said the same in 2014 only to look like a fool. Alabama is the better team. They may well be shut out because the SEC is represented already. If the committee could set up Alabama vs. Georgia in round 1 to avoid the possibility of an all-SEC NCG, I bet they would, but those seedings aren’t justifiable at this point. I get the argument about resumes, but the only part of their schedules that Bama and tOSU could control were OOC. Bama tore apart an FSU team that didn’t lose Francois until the end. Ohio St got their ass handed to them at home. Could just piss everyone off and invite USC. Oh ... how bout them Dawgs??? Aside from the obvious SEC championship, they avoided losing to a rival twice in a year and don’t yet have to watch Richt make the playoff.
  6. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Georgia will wear white against Florida after the game being color-on-color the past 3 years. It was a new thing (for fans my age), but I really liked the red and blue both being worn.

    Irving wants to be the focal point of a team, and LeBron is leaving them for nothing in a year? Trade LeBron.

    As if to prove it isn't contrived hype under the new regime, the blackout is a noon game against Louisiana Lafayette.
  9. College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

    The '07 Auburn game will always be "the blackout." That was Sanford Stadium at its best. Thrilled the black are back. I'm so high on Georgia right now that I wouldn't even mind them pairing them with the black helmet/pants from that '09 GA/FL game. Unless those are "cursed" as well

    New slogan, new font. "Clinton/Warren" would fit in really nicely.

    Oh lord, I'm going to be a fool and buy into the Heat. With Toronto exhibiting their usual playoff incompetence, a showdown with LeBron might actually happen. C'mon basketball gods.
  12. 2015-16 NBA Thread

    And brings his friends? Not clear when LeBron said this, but it's a quote from a Howard Beck piece that just went up: I like what the Heat are building now, but I'd give it all up for a Big 4 that could only last a year or two.
  13. 2015-16 NBA Thread

    We're a quarter of the way through the season. As the standings are today, the West would have 2 teams qualify for the playoffs with losing records, and the East would have ... 0. What a time to be alive!

    Kirby Smart to Georgia. Word is he wants Will Muschamp to come along to be DC. This has so much dumpster fire potential.
