A FEW THOUGHTS FROM THE WORLD OF SPORTS

Passing along a few thoughts that come to mind.  As always, we welcome any comments you may have on these or any other topic related to sports.

BASEBALL      Pete Rose should be in the Baseball Hall Of Fame for his contributions as a player.
Rose was banned from baseball for betting on games and for that, I say "So What?"  Rose never bet against is own team and was never known to throw a game in the opponents favor.  If anything, betting on ones self shows some degree of confidence that I wish more players would have.

There should be a so called Hall Of Fame for the PED users and cheaters that enabled them to create much improved statistics.  Their records should never be allowed to compare to all the players in the history of the sport that accomplished stats the right way.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL       The Big 12 needs to expand their conference from 10 teams to 12.
An expansion would pretty much guarantee the need for a season ending conference championship game to be in line with what all the other major conferences do now.  Baylor and TCU were both left out of the "Final Four" playoffs last season simply because they were declared, co-champions of their conference.  Who is to say that could not happen again??

I have to wonder why Illinois football coach, Tim Beckman  still has his job.  In 3 years as the Illinois coach, Beckman has compiled a record of 12-25 to go along with his 1.95 million annual salary.  In addition, it has been reported that, Beckman has a reputation of being abusive to players and staff.   I would think that this year at the very least will be a do or die season for him even though he has the full support of Athletic Director, Mike Thomas.  Maybe Illinois needs to review, Thomas' status as well.

NFL       For many, this is the season that the Dallas Cowboys will prevail and be one of the top teams in the NFL.  The defensive line is said to be solid and with the return of LB, Sean Lee, it would appear that the once weak defense will make steps in improvement.  Still remaining however is the highly questionable secondary.  I would think that anything less than a conference championship would be unacceptable. but then again their conference is not the strongest.

I am tired of hearing about New England and Tom Brady with the ongoing appeal of Brady's suspension of 4 games for deflated footballs.  The player's union has suggested that Brady pay a fine and the suspension be lifted.  With all the money. Brady gets, that is truly laughable.  The Patriots over the years have been known  to cheat and it is time the NFL says enough is enough and drop the hammer on them.

GOLF     It appears there is a job opening for a caddie on the pro tour.  After a dispute on which club to use landed in a creek pro golfer, Robert Allenby allegedly took it out on his caddie, Mick Middlemo by using a few unprintable words to inform Middlemo that this has been going on for months and he is no help to him.  Allenby claimed that it was, Middlemo who got in his face and used a few choice words of his own.  The pair did not speak for the remainder of the front nine, at which time, Middlemo packed up and left, Allenby to get a fan to carry his bag for the last nine holes.  For the record, people nearby support, Middlemo's side of the story.  Before anyone hurries to apply for this caddie job, I must inform you that, Allenby has a world ranking of 390, and this is the 4th time that his caddies have left him in the middle of a round.  Maybe Allenby is not the best to be employed by.

That PATS / NFL appeal thing should been done and over a long time ago,the process it-self and the reporting on it are both over-due

PETE ROSE should have been in the Hall Of Fame a decade ago. MLB needs to step back!

That's my problem, I need to find a caddie to blame for me not being able to play on the pro tour. I have some other things that Id like to blame on him too, once I get him.

The D will help Dallas but I still don't think they'll go as far as the preseason experts say they will

Couldn't Agree More.

it doesn't look alike the caddie is Allenbys' problem. his problem is he doesn't realize that hes' the problem

Jon4sythe said...

All football conferences should follow the same rules as far as conference title games go. It is the only thing that prevents leaving other teams out who are possibly deserving of post season play

Romo is a scary quarterback. Defense will help the cowboys but winning will come down to Romo being on or blowing it

Expanding the Big12 would be ideal and long overdue - - they need the 11th and 12th teams

CHAVEZ said...

Some people just can''t handle the pressure of being ranked 390th. It must be going to Allenby's head

Football and epistemology. I love it. The connection is so obvious you wonder there is not a whole literature on the subject. Further evidence of how the academy and the people who gather to watch the Super Bowl over chips and beer can lose track of one another. I say if we are serious about praxis — i.e., scholarship that stands a chance of helping the world become a little more reflective and honest — we need to pay more attention to things like instant replays and sports bloopers. Nice work, Harper.Bubble Soccer Party

oh that’s what i’ve heard. that the south is really serious about sports. hmmm…not sure where i’ll fit in that spectrum. i think it’s so different for girls than it is for boys. i just want my girlies to get some exercise and have fun. i don’t take anything to an extreme. but i do love passion so i get what you are saying about giving it your all. i don’t think that’s ever a bad thing.play soccer in your browser

How does one learn to be a magical performer? Since magic is an art guarded by secrecy, and the most skillful magicians are prohibited from exposing the secret in their magic tricks, how would you pursue your desire to learn the craft?roblox codes list

Much appreciated such a great amount for this data. I need to tell you I agree on a few of the focuses you make here and others might require some further survey, however I can see your perspective.coded pushup board video

Whether your entire sales technique is completed over the telephone, or you trade on-line and virtually use the phone for customer support or lead era, choosing the right phone range for your business is important to make certain that you get as many calls from capacity clients as possible. You have the selection of the use of a non-geographical range, or many "geographic" cellphone numbers, or you may use a aggregate of the two.mobil ödeme bahis siteleri

Thank you for explaining this. I actually have a bottle of turmeric that a brand sent me – different brand than this and I have used it before workouts but I have no real clue how it works or what it does. Now I know!! I have never played broom ball but that looks pretty fun.cornhole
