I'm surprised I disagree with you so much about this topic. I usually agree with your assessments of various topics. But, I think you couldn't be ...

you are describing MU Really? You really believe MU leaving would be the end of the Big 12? Seriously? not what you posted. Only school pushing right now is mu. Actually, that is what I posted. And you didn't answer the question. But I'll go ahead and respond to your post anyway. MU not "pushing" a...

Who is the "Texas" of the Pac 12? Big 10? SEC? Those conferences don't have a school willing to push their conference to the brink of collapse for it's own personal interests.

Re: TIME TO FREAK OUT AGAIN ABOUT CONFERENCE REALIGNMENT! TH

I think it's fairly obvious that MU doesn't consider a 6 year TV sharing deal "stability". This whole mess will just open up again in that time, if not sooner. And who knows what options will be out there for MU at that point. If they have a chance to achieve true stability in a conference that has ...

Re: Tuscany II: Siena and the countryside

Wow.  I visited Italy 2.5 years ago and spent 3 days in Tuscany and only one of them outside of Florence.  We went to Pisa and after looking at those pictures, I must say, we made the wrong decision.  Seeing the leaning tower was a fun experience (I kept thinking of bizarro Superman coming in and st...

Re: Mizzou to the Big Ten?

And that would still suck.  If nothing is on the line, like a Big 12 north title, then it loses much of its meaning to the fans. With the exception of the first football game at Arrowhead a few years ago, I can't think of one instance where a KU/MU matchup had anything on the line for both schools ...

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not sure if drafting is the only way to look at it.  All the players he's drafted are young.  Moore's hasn't been here that long.  As we all know, a farm system is comprised of a lot more players than merely draft picks.  Well sure, but other than international signings and trades, it's the onl...

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'd say that our current failures are an indicment of Dayton Moore's ineptitude.  The guy consistently mismanages Glass' money.  And consistently fails to develop ANY talent through our farm system.  Arguably, Glass' biggest failure has been not firing Moore.   Who has Moore drafted since he's been...

Oh, he's building.  The problem is that the parts he ordered are still several years away.   And the temporary materials he's got off the scrapheap aren't any better than what was here previously.

Re: TSC Renovations

A columnist here in Omaha, Tom Shatel, toured Target Field.  Said it's an improvement (obviously) over the Metrodome but did say there's nothing that really distinguishes it from any of the other new fields that have opened in the post Camden era. Greg I think the only real thing that distinguishes...

Re: Rams leaving St. Louis?

A friend from STL forwarded this to me.  I guess their GM Billy Devaney held court at a restaurant in suburban St. Louis and fielded questions from fans.  Pretty awesome insight into the mind of an active GM, especially if you are familiar at all with the current Rams roster. http://www.nflfans.com/...

I also agree that Cassel is a career backup, its just pure fact.  I pointed out various times how much poorly the Pats performed with him behind the wheel..but that didn't matter to most everyone since they still had this enamoring 11-5 record. Clearly everyone but us forgot what they accomplished ...

Re: iPhone/AT&T question?

Back in September, I was browsing in Best Buy and a phone salesman there said that Apple is moving the iPhone to Sprint in early 2010 due to Sprint's 4G network. I haven't heard anything about it since and kinda figured he was blowing smoke up my ass. Has anyone heard anything similar?
