  1. Ours is .469 BTW, the undefeated 1972 Miami Dolphins' (of which I think are tremendously overrated) strength of schedule was .4413 (1971 records). If you look at their 1972 strength of schedule using the end of 1972 results, it is .357. If you exclude the 14 games they won over their opponents, the number is .3851. Mind you, this was also for a team that had lost in the SB the year before.
  2. Don't they share that stadium with their baseball team? My guess is they want to avoid any conflicts with the A's regular season and paloffs.

    OldSwayBackMule 1 year ago Will winning respect from the parents of those black athletes on the Cavs team help? I don't know the percentage of college players (let's not count the NBA prep schoolers who play for Duke, NC, et. al. who play one year and go pro) who end up playing in the pros. However, I am willing to bet that the UVA black BB players who do graduate end up with better paying jobs and satisfying careers than those from other schools. In other words, my friend, the black athletes from UVA are not being "used". BLM Likethumb_up4 Linklink Reportflag greg thrasher 1 year ago Yes they are and they will never win a national championship with Tony BLM I really could use that $100K. MarkB452 1 year ago If you are 100% sure that UVA will not win a national championship with Tony, then you should be willing to bet $100K of your own money vs. 1 cent of mine that it will not happen. Do we have a deal? Likethumb_up Linklink Reportflag greg thrasher 1 year ago I never bet on college sports BLM
  4. At least the 4th (and totally worthless) preseason game is on a Thursday instead of a Wednesday. This is the Thursday before Labor Day, so it might be a way to kickoff a long Labor Day weekend.

    Terrell Owens Loses Valuable NFL Memorabilia After Storage Unit is Auctioned If you were an NFL superstar, you more than likely made a massive sum of cash during your playing days. That's the case for Terrell Owens at least, and the Hall of Fame wide receiver was not afraid to spend his hard earned money. Owens found himself with a ton of sports memorabilia from his days in the league, and without enough houses to store all of the goods, he placed them in a storage unit

  9. >> This signing also should guarantee that at least ONE player not named D. Green makes the Hall of Fame under Snyder's ownership. To be honest though, I did not expect him to resign with the Redskins. This is a nice insurance policy in case Guise is not as durable as we hope he is.

    Season Ticket Renewals

    On the bright side, that's an over 50% drop in your ticket costs/headaches. They are hard to give up, but after a few games, you will be glad that you no longer bear that burden.

    Agreed, the AT&T commercial is quickly growing to the level of hatred I have for Kars for Kids and xFinity. Could it be the Gingers?

    Season Ticket Renewals

    Which side of the field were you on? My family used to have seats behind the visiting bench and it was always super crowded (plus there would be a ton of visiting fans). My brother gave them up in 2018 after taking some major losses in 2017 when he could not go to several games. I think there were three games where he got $100 for 2 $143 tickets and a $50 green parking pass.

    >> Does UMD have that kind of money to throw away? Did they ever reinstate all those sports that were dropped a few years ago? The naming rights are not available for sale for a couple more years, right?
