  • Other than having to live in providence that sounds great. Best of luck to Rico. I really enjoyed Providence. Except the letting seven goals in thing. But that's not the city's fault.
  • Didn't his contract with Miami mandate that he had to look for another job in order to continue to get paid by Miami? His payout would be his contract amount minus any salary received at a new job, which he had to attempt to find. I would assume t…
  • Just came here to post that. Would be incredibly weird watching games at Cady on teevee.
  • Per a quick Google search January is the coldest month in Grand Forks, with an average high-temperature of 16.5°F (-8.6°C) and an average low-temperature of -3.1°F (-19.5°C) So much for packing the golf clubs Yep, we were going to make the trip t…
  • Very, very sad to see this. Dave was a huge Miami hockey fan for a long time. I remember he introduced himself to me about 10 years ago at a postseason banquet. We had an ongoing online conversation from that point on. He'll be missed.
  • UC Riverside, a Division I program (Big West), is considering dropping athletics altogether as a cost measure. https://www.pe.com/uc-riverside-weighs-axing-sports-to-balance-coronavirus-battered-budget Wow. They've produced a lot of baseball talen…
  • Not unexpected, although I'm not sure what magically changes between now and then.
  • Drop hockey = athletic budget saved Drop bouncyball since hockey doubles it in attendance and has raised tens of millions in donations. Nobody outside of this board cares about Miami basketball. Most games can't even draw a thousand people (no, I'm …
  • Thanks for the info. I just hope this isnt the end of Miami sports as I know it. Amazingly enough on a Miami sports fan forum many of you wont feel the same and would be thrilled if this led to Miami having a D3 or non scholarship model- but I…
  • Kuraly missed last night's game, Boston loses 7-1. Coincidence? Ruled out for tonight as well. "Unfit to play".
  • Vegas dominates Vancouver, 5-0. Reilly 1-1-2, Martinez 0-1-1.
  • And now...Mike Milbury. Additional comment deleted. I have no idea how that guy continues to be employed in the hockey world.
  • The Reds and Fox Sports Ohio are likely have more than just Thom to deal with.  A peice of the Paul Daugherty story paints a picture of a toxic work place.  A baseball radio or TV booth is not a genteel place. It can be as full of overcooked testo…

  • I'm not a fan of the Brennamans. Marty is a lousy person and tHom is a lousy announcer who only got his job because of Franchester. But part of me actually does feel sorry for tHom. His career and his life essentially were ruined in two seconds. T…
  • So . . . 37.5% chance Edmonton, Pittsburgh, or Toronto gets Lafreniere. Nice system. To be fair, there was only a 2 percent chance that top pick went to the eighth-worst team. I'm all for not automatically rewarding teams that tank.
  • How about that shit?
  • Goddammit. I hate this year.

  • I like the NHL arena set up better than the NBA with cardboard cut outs. They aren’t going as crazy with fake noise either like some of the MLS tourney games I watched. I too noticed hockey sounded a lot more normal than the other sports, that sai…
  • Having to deal with Pierre has to kill a lot of brain cells. 4-1 Blackhawks!
  • Considering all of their injuries, is any team better now than in March than the CBJ? Jones alone is a huge addition. Also, the word "virtual" needs to be banned from the English language after this mess ends.
  • Considering the Seattle NHL franchise just announced today it's calling itself the Kraken, maybe cautiousness is the best play. Kraken was far and away the best name. Are you saying you don't like it? If so, you're the first person I've seen upset …

  • Did the call get overturned after the replay?
  • So was this the mods' way of saying that thread had run its course, or did the COVID gods obliterate it because they're part of the cancel culture?  THREAD LIVES MATTER! EDIT: Nm, didn't read TheChuck's Rules update. 
  • I credit DG. I suspect he talked down to it to the point where it gave up and fled.
  • With the Big 14 eliminating non-conference football games which generate oodles of money, what are the odds Michigan State allows its hockey team to come to Oxford for no money in mid-October?
  • Here is a story along the same lines, MAC in a media desert: https://www.toledoblade.com/sports/college/2020/07/04/mid-american-conference-sports-news-desert-hutle-belt-newspaper-decline/stories/20200703115 Seems to me like a great opportunity for…
  • Rich Hill is still pitching in the Majors? He came up with the Cubs in like 1967.
  • All I know is that Trout is telling the media his wife’s doctor says she is considered high risk due to her pregnancy. Latest CDC data shows that 25% of women admitted to hospital for birth of their baby test positive for Covid-19. Indicates A lot…
