  • RIP Barbara Bush

    It has just been reported that Barbara Bush has passed away. This is notable on a Miami sports website as her parents were a Miami Merger. Her Dad was Marvin "Monk" Pierce, a great athlete who played football, baseball, basketball, and tennis. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think he was a member of the Athletic Hall of Fame. If I also remember correctly, she had a brother who went to Miami as well as possibly a nephew and I think both of them played sports as well.

    Highlights:
    - As usual, Bluesman really grabbed this edition by the pussy.

    - Sayler specifically pointed out that mid majors aren't getting love in the men's NCAA basketball tournament. Like him not sugarcoating that issue.

    - No concrete info yet on how ESPN+ will impact Miami games. DS said he expects at least some content will shift to ESPN+.

    - Not really a highlight, but DS mentioned how fans have come to expect being able to watch the games with decent production value and how it's been a boon for the league and school. Contrast with Chief Bates Ruinhoop, who, at the GoDaddy.com Bowl in 2011 said (in front of many witnesses): "Do you think fans really care about being able to stream basketball games?"

    - University has hired someone to revamp marketing, including social media.

    - DS gave Chuck props for crushing it in recruiting (including citing the silly 247 rankings).

    - No kick time yet for UC football game, but will probably be early or late because the Reds play at 4. DS said he didn't where the Reds would be in the standings come September. Yes, he does; we all do.

  • The Athletic Article on Chuck

    When I signed up for The Athletic, Miami coverage didn’t even enter my mind. It’s well worth the 40 bucks a year if you have any national sports interest at all, and particularly if your city is covered. MAC teams getting love in football and basketball is much more than I expected.

    Also, great story.

    Almost 10 minutes. I think 4 total questions. They do a good job with these. Wish they would do it more often.

    According to John Fay, the Reds shill, MLB "is a marathon, not a sprint". I have told Fay the Reds are marathoning it straight to the cellar.

     Miami and UC should schedule the game whenever the hell they want. Won't be 5000 people watching that meaningless Reds game.
