  • The battlefield park in Concord -- UMass's true homefield.  
  • I actually meant drop football rather than drop realignment. There's no way that football program would be profitable as an independent, is there? Not unless you are Notre Dame or one of the military schools. of course, is it profitable for Miami …
  • Will that even be an FBS game by the time we play it?
  • Cleveland also signed Marques Bolden as an undrafted free agent immediately after the draft.  I'm biased, but I think that kid can stick on an NBA roster and be a good second-unit rim runner.  He worked his tail off at Duke and played really well la…
  • Damnit Fleck.
  • https://mobile.twitter.com/AndrewDasNYT/status/1140567257707438080 An interesting twitter thread about the Thai team’s main benefactor.

  • It's almost inarguable that our gender stereotypes lead us to expect women to be more polite and talk less trash than men when playing sports.  But folks who expect that from world-class athletes have never seen Diana Taurasi play basketball (or Mic…
  • I didn't get to watch the match, but your comment reminded me of something we taught when I was helping coach rec soccer.  My co-coach is English and a stickler for "fair play."  He taught our kids very early on that it was not polite to celebrate a…
  • Among the stories I'm willing to share, a few friends and I decided on Saturday night to walk to College Corner.  This may or may not have had something to do with a long discussion about lower state minimum prices and probably everything to do with…
  • Can you imagine if a mens team celebrated like this in a world cup game?  There would've been an ensuing brawl or a few studs up tackles to follow. "I don't know anything about Angola, but I know they're in trouble." https://www.nytimes.com/1992/07…
  • I don't read Thai, so I can't see what their media has said about this, but it seems like the Thai team mostly took 13-0 as some growing pains and a gut check about what it takes to play against the best teams in the world.  The quotes I saw in the …
  • https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/26915206/eagles-sign-wentz-128m-extension Why the heck would the Eagles pay a guy that tore his ACL, has had a persistent back injury and was outplayed by Nick Foles?  He has footage of Jeffrey Lurie helping Santa…
  • Now that the days are long, spending an evening in the North End (Boston's traditional Italian neighborhood) would be really pleasant.  You could work in dinner at one of the classic local spots like Trattoria Il Panino, a stroll through the neighbo…

  • That’s good to see. Thanks.
  • Is there any update on our injured player? That sounded dangerous.
  • Nothing.  Most schools do it.  It's why places like Miami make a big push to get the graduating class to contribute to the "class gift" back to the school.  And it's not even primarily about gaming US News.  Institutional research shows that encoura…
  • THEM SOONERS IS CHEATIN' AS HELL, PAAAAAAAWWWWWWLLLLLLL.  IMMA HANG UP AND LISTEN.
  • If you read the local coverage in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the situation is (no surprise) more nuanced than ESPN reported.  St Thomas is about triple the size of most MIAC schools and double the size of the next largest.  It also has been super…
  • Based on the heat Chuck has been taking around here, I don't think he'd even buy green bananas at this point.
  • Please take appropriate precautions when using The Portal.   https://www.everydayshouldbesaturday.com/2019/4/19/18412186/the-transfer-portal-a-users-guide
  • If my family could have afforded it, I would have taken my acceptance at Penn. I don’t think that would have helped my rooting interests all that much.
  • It's time to run up the score. https://www.everydayshouldbesaturday.com/2019/4/11/18306346/edsbs-charity-bowl-day-four-blowout-engaged
  • If you're not careful with this strategy, you end up with higher-wage coach than you budgeted and no ability to transfer her to Borussia Dortmund.  
  • And Ohio U. Let's keep it that way. https://www.everydayshouldbesaturday.com/2019/4/10/18304591/edsbs-charity-bowl-2019-day-three-update
  • We're beating the heck out of the imposter institution in Coral Gables. https://twitter.com/newampaths/status/1116025135083995139
  • This is an occupational hazard of having a great young coach at Miami where there is no committment to basketball******.  But Coach Duffy did good things here and left the program in much better shape than she found it.  Hopefully that will make it …
