    The difference is no 3-0 non-con start.

    Chicago Cubs 2020 Season

    Fortunately there are no fans in the outfield seats. When Kimbrel pitches it would be dangerous out there. Incoming!

    Lou Henson dies at 88

    One of my college roommates was an ag engineering major and he made a free-throw shooting machine as a project. It was similar to the jugs machines you see that throw baseballs or footballs. There was a photo-op that was set up with some media and Coach Henson came down to the lab to see it...

    Chicago Cubs 2020 Season

    Considering what's happening with Miami and with the Yankees-Phillies series I'll be surprised if the season isn't suspended or cancelled in the next week or so.

    Blackhawks '19-'20

    So do the playoffs serve as some kind of extended training camp for the ‘20-‘21 season? Cause season usually starts the first week of October...

    The last sentence of the statement was the most telling. At this point I don't think it's a reasonable expectation to see Fall sports in 2020.

    Iowa Football Program Culture Criticism

    It seems like 75-80% of college football coaches must be lunatics. I wonder what it would take for Iowa to cut ties with Ferentz. I realize there will be an investigation, but I suspect he has the largest margin of "error" of almost any other coach in the country.

    Great news about Wilson. Larmer should be there too. And for God's sake retire their numbers please.

    Trying to imagine the weird sound of thousands of fans screaming and cheering with masks on. Or maybe there will just be polite clapping?

    Chicago Cubs 2020 Season

    I grew up on a farm (still farm today) and back then the local feed company would give you so many tickets to a Cubs game based on how much feed you bought and provide a bus ride up to the game. We bought enough feed for four tickets and the trip just happened to be scheduled for that day...

    Iowa Football Program Culture Criticism

    I don't disagree with what any of you are posting here. I personally am not offended when some athletes kneel for the anthem, in fact I don't see the point in playing the anthem before sporting events. But I know a lot of people do take offense and I wonder if its the right method to get their...

    Iowa Football Program Culture Criticism

    I don't think statements like this are helpful or will lead to racial harmony. Whether some of these young athletes recognize it or not, kneeling during the anthem is offensive to many people in this country. It's certainly their prerogative to do so, just don't expect everyone to approve.

    Nah....just put onerous sanctions on them to decimate their program so the Illini can pound them every year.
