Re: Spring 2021 FCS: Scouting for the next Donald Parham

Ah TSU, best known alum-wise for all IFL/AFL/NAL fullback Derrick Ross and Colts LB E.J. Speed, looks like just the type of team that will go in and knock off NMSU, a la Abilene Christian in 2013 nearly did when Charcandrick West and Taylor Gabriel went off. Don't be lookin past McNeese though, seem...

Re: TSL News Thread

Not only that, AFL did that in 2004 or 2005 and lost a lot of momentum. That's interesting; I didn't know that. It seems like a good idea, but I guess it just doesn't translate. To be fair, that may have been ahead of the NHL (which was supposed to return to NBC that year but the season was wiped o...

Norfolk State opts out.

Wonder how they resked on such short notice, since they're down to six they should theoretically be able move one of the teams from the four team div into NSU's spot, or just junk the divs altogether.

Re: TSL News Thread

And assuming it does relaunch next year...how would you all feel about the idea of starting the season the week between the NFL conference games and the super bowl? Play week two on Saturday of Super bowl week, then on from there? I don't think it's a good idea. All of the attention of the Sports w...

Re: Spring 2021 FCS: Scouting for the next Donald Parham

In hindsight....I really wish Pac 12 football would've held back to play spring ball like they planned to originally. As things turned out....they barely played at all. And Washington couldn't play the Pac 12 title game like they were supposed to because they didn't have enough healthy players. It ...

Re: Spring 2021 FCS: Scouting for the next Donald Parham

I was a junior at EWU in 2007 when they stomped then-undefeated #2 seed McNeese State in the first round of the FCS playoffs. Matt Nichols didn't even have a great game, he threw for over 400 yards but also had two INTS--including a pick-six. This happened: A couple of the under guys started talking...

Re: CFL: Edmonton Football Team names

Ice would have been a creative name, wouldn't be EE but would have kept the alliteration going. Modeled after the IFL Colorado Ice (which ditched the moniker and snapped up Crush, then were killed by Fanchise) as well as the WHL team that began in Edmonton. Moot point however, last thing CFL needs i...

Re: TSL News Thread

You know the Cardinals could have the most interesting QB depth chart: Murray's making noises about playing baseball again, which unlike Russell Wilson are serious cause Murray was a top ten pick. And if they don't re-sign Brett Hundley or sign another vet free agent, they'll have two quarterbacks w...

Re: McMahon countersues Luck

Again, landing the TV deal he did (sure there weren't any rights fees, show of how many startups/restarts normally have any) is his biggest plus, the longer this goes on the less visible that becomes and it flips to 'he just up and left when all broke loose', true or not. Do we know what kind of ro...
