    A lot of words were said but Blumenthal never missed a photo op and he became the face of the lawsuit.

    Maybe this is where we are heading....down the road some.

    Football will have to break away. Let's say 48 teams (could be more but not less). Being the greedy b*st*rds that they are, they keep all that money. Basketball/Olympics will remain as is (break away is only for FB). The Tournament (may not be NCAA Tournament) will continue to support all...

    July 1, 2026: Your predictions as to where every FBS program will be

    2026 is a lifetime away. So much could change in 5 years. Who knows, maybe a platform emerges that leads to conferences going back to being more regionalized?

    Was the Alston case (NIL) the trigger for this round of realignment?

    That will be part of the "in home visit", to go over marketing opportunities for the prospect. Here's the portfolio for our area, we're also referred to as "the 6th borough so there will be opportunities in the City...

    Anyone feel like bragging?

    Slow pitch, I hit a softball over the war memorial at Riverview Park in Shelton. I've heard guys talk about hitting a baseball over it in high school. One other time, playing left field (softball) someone ripped a ball over my head. I ran straight back and reached up and grabbed the ball...

    SCOTUS rules against NCAA

    Thank you P5! Your efforts to monetize any aspect of sport that you could for your own benefit, your desire to squeeze every last dollar in an effort to be "the best" has opened Pandora's box and has put college athletics at risk. Well done you classless, greedy

    UConn President Thomas Katsouleas will leave post, sources say

    Keep this under wraps but I have heard that the real problem was that he had no handle with his left. He didn't move his feet well on defense either. Just saying.

    Underrated US Cities

    The first time I went to Pittsburgh there were 3 of us and I was lucky enough to be in the front with the driver. The view of the city as you come out of the tunnel was quite impressive. And yeah, I love the ballpark and watching fans walk across the Clemente bridge.

    IT: Cordless Electric Lawn tools

    I use Greenworks: lawnmower, leafblower, 12" chainsaw, weed whacker. These all use 40V battery. I also have their snowblower which takes an 80V battery. I don't have a big, challenging yard and what I have is perfect. I have two 40V batteries with chargers. I have just one 80V but it...

    If I had a choice between Polley and Anderson I'd take Rash every time. Not even close.

    UConn's Season a 'Huge Success' - Dan Hurley

    Not a "huge" success but in a crappy season we made the Dance. Agree that getting to the dance is the baseline and we should be there every year (or as much as JC did). Can't wait until next year.

    Hurley Should Have An Honest Talk With Bouk

    Bouk has a lot of work to do but he should go. I'd be shocked if he stayed. Happy, but shocked.

    Tom Izzo Should be Done

    The kid blew his assignment and reacted inappropriately with his coach. The coach then acted inappropriately by grabbing him. For now, this is between the player and his coach. Ten years ago this would have been nothing. Today, its a little more than that.

    Mick was an easy target but I thought he and Cincy were a great fit. He's a scrappy, gritty, good coach.

    Anyone have a link to TV replay of tonight's game

    I have to say, calling a game at Gampel when UConn plays real well is one of the highlights of my career.

    Martin will be a good one. Echo the Donny Marshall references.
