Re: Women's Hoops

Good athletic departments have consistently winning football and men's basketball teams. Great athletic departments, the kind that may potentially get P5 invites in the next round of realignment, have success across the board, with all their teams.

Re: Did anyone else, while walking to their car after the game

But on the subject of after games, it is a miracle people walking to cars, dorms, etc. are not hit by cars. Many do not look when crossing in addition to wearing dark clothes. This is real bad everywhere, but worse on 10th. School colors don't help. For late night games in the dead of winter, perha...

Re: Kotsanlee -Punter from down under

Decent size for a punter. It's always nice, all other things being equal, to have a punter who is big enough to tackle a good sized WR or slot, in the event of a good return.
