    TV Broadcast on CBS

    There are 25 minutes until we tip, and the Florida-Kentucky game on CBS just had the Under-16 timeout. No way it's finished by 2:00. Any idea if they'll cut to tip of the UConn game on Connecticut stations or if there's somewhere else we can watch it? (Presumably they wouldn't cut away from the...

    Chrome Says This Site Has Malware

    When I've clicked on several posts on this site, Google Chrome halts me and tells me they have malware and I have to bypass them manually. Do we really have malware here? If not, how do I make it stop?

    If only....

    If our offense and special teams were even average this season, we'd be 3-0 right now. And we'd be winning this game too. Our defense has been playing very well throughout the year, although has had a tough time with the offense and special teams giving them great field position. Buffalo has 28...

    Jokes about llamas

    A llama walks into the bar and Orders beer. The bartender says "a talking llama?" The llamas who ride shall be named mountain. The last one is funnier in Spanish.

    Just ran into Pasqualoni

When I finally reached the building and ran in to dryness, I crashed into HCPP, who was standing near the entrance waiting for his football...

    By the letter of the law, the NCAA is right on Boatright....

    There's no doubt in my mind what Boatright's mom did was against the rules, and that, by rule, Boatright should be declared ineligible. However, to quote Charles Dickens, "the law is an ass". The fact that the NCAA considers it identical whether Boatright's mom took $100 from a friend who...

    Question about NCAA Policy

    My understanding of the fickle NCAA rules for student-athletes is that if any athlete's image is used for commercial purposes, then that athlete is rendered ineligible. Normally, the NCAA will allow the school to get it removed, but then if it's not, then the athlete is ineligibized (see...
