Re: Delaware State!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The idea that every school needs to have or should have athletic teams that compete with other colleges is the issue. Why should Delaware St even have a football or basketball team? What does that really do for the university in general? Clearly, the vast majority of folks at that school, like many...

Re: CFP championship game

I don't like watering down the playoffs just to make teams that aren't really worthy feel good about being included in the process. Right now, you get 4 good teams every year in the playoffs. I don't want to keep expanding it so we can eventually fit in some teams that don't belong. Eventually you g...

E-filing through FreeTaxUSA.com is way cheaper than TurboTax or TaxAct, and it's approved by the IRS. I use that fillable bracket link the IRS provides to do my filing - completely free, but of course you need to do the work.

Re: Quarantine - Could it be done here?

I have a hard time seeing the logistics of quarantining a whole city here in the US being done. And by the time it was implemented, wouldn't it have spread to other places so the quarantine zone would grow, thus more logistics. So I guess the bigger question is could an entire state(s) be quarantin...

Re: Super Bowl LIV - 49ers vs. Chiefs

I got to think Andy Reid is a major part of their success. KC was atrocious and then Reid comes in. He' takes them to 6 playoff appearances following such awful seasons where they had only won 2 games. And possible further evidenced by the fact that after those shitty years, his leadership has them...

Schilling should be a lock for next year now. Yeah. And since Clemens and Bonds didn't get much of an improvement this year and only have 2 years left, they likely are out until Veterans Committee votes them in eventually I have to believe. As it should be. Luckily the turnover in voters from old t...

I'd have left him off too, just to keep it from being unanimous. You can argue Mariano as a unanimous, at least he's likely the best ever at his particular position. No one has ever argued Jeter is the best SS of all time. Most agreed he should've stopped playing SS later in his career as his field...

Re: Super Bowl LIV - 49ers vs. Chiefs

Great offense vs great defense (when KC has the ball). Great offense vs average defense (when SF has the ball). The stats would point to SF, but Mahomes can make stats a moot point. I said Chiefs, but wouldn't be surprised if the 49ers win. It really depends on how they contain Mahomes. And people ...
