I searched through threads for the past year and couldn't find anything like this, so I figured I would post it. The idea behind this thread is to post interesting facts or statistics that a lot of people don't know. It'll essentially be the answers to trivia questions. I've got two interesting ones to start this thread off. The Minnesota Vikings were the first team to kick an extra point from the 15-yard line. Tom Brady has played two games at University of Phoenix Stadium, but he has never played the Cardinals there. The Pats have played two Super Bowls there, but only played the Cardinals at home since the stadium was built.
Several notes from today as we head into the offseason: - As expected, Duke's Jaleel Okafor and nearly everyone who saw the court for Kentucky this season has officially declared for the NBA Draft. - Also, ex-Duke player and STATE UNIVERISTY OF NEW YORK at Buffalo head coach Bobby Hurley has been hired away by Arizona State.
I searched the forums & didn't see anything like this. But as I was doing some research on my Heisman project, I was watching some old college football highlights. And it got me thinking how much I loved the 2007 season, so I thought about a thread like this. You can put your favorite season from any sport, or 1 year specifically. & please list your reasons. Here are mine: College Football / 2007: - Incredible upsets like Appalachian State over Michigan, Stanford over USC, Kentucky over South Carolina, Colorado over Oklahoma - Tebow going nuts all over the place - Mizzou had their best season of my lifetime, reaching #1 in the rankings, and beating #1 Kansas who was 11-0 in the last game of the season > Chase Daniel is a Heisman Finalist > they had 3 first-team All-Americans - All the amazing QuarterBacks like Tebow, Dennis Dixon, Graham Harrell, Colt McCoy, Chase Daniel, Colt Brennan, Matt Ryan, Pat White, Sam Bradford - Darren McFadden running over everyone & everything - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RG5TIgTYUls&feature=kp << highlights - USC honors fallen teammate >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hp0moLzrroI - The Greatest Bowl game of all time, the 2007 Fiesta Bowl, Oklahoma vs. Boise State > Highlights https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQp6r0VehPM > This https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaIOWZJqr10 - Virginia Tech winning the game after their school shooting >> NFL / 2007: - I couldn't really pick one I liked the best, but this is my favorite Super Bowl of all time. Because the Giants were huge underdogs, and I hate the Patriots. What a game. MLB / 2011: - The Cardinals were 11 games out of the playoffs, & they made it in on the last game of the season. That story line, that eventually became the Greatest World Series game of all time (IMO), and a World Series win makes it my favorite. > We'll see you tomorrow night (goosebumps) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Go1raoqHZkU College Basketball / 2010: - single-handidly because of this shot. I hated Kansas, but I always root for the underdogs & this was incredible https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDWYx3LVrPg NHL / 2014? - I'm pretty indifferent to the NHL, but I followed it a lot more this year, & I loved the playoffs
