  1. Dayum, offer Mr. Mayo RIGHT NOW!!!
  2. Next dominos are falling. Looks like no fall college sports. This was inevitable. No way college hoops starts before Jan. 1 and that season is in serious jeopardy.
  3. The first domino falls, UConn has cancelled it’s football season.
  4. If I’m wrong, I’ll own up to it, but I doubt any college sports will be played this year. The hope we had for sports as we’ve known them, which includes fan attendance without limitations, was to shut the economy down through July 4th, and have everyone follow the remediation efforts that we’re all now familiar with. Since a July 4th restart scenario wasn’t likely, I hoped we could keep everything shut down through Memorial Day, and maybe we’d get lucky. Once the “liberate states” stuff started, that was likely the end of sports in the USA for ‘20-21.
  5. Thanks Coach for all you did in building the program. Seriously, good luck, but my question is, why take a step down to South Carolina?
  6. Jimmy Bell Jr. aka "The Locomotive"
  7. Sad news. Condolences to Earl. His Uncle was an immovable object in the post.
  8. Props on the Biancardi interview. Among others, the story about Eckerle trying to guard Derrick Rose in the secret game was great. Reminded me of my futile attempts at trying to guard guys who were just way more athletic than me.
  9. When you live in ACC country you run into fans who love Duke, Carolina, and others but aren’t really familiar with teams not in the Power 5 conferences.
  10. I’ve been asked by more than “casual” sports fans.
  11. The Chris Sloan podcast is excellent. Good storytelling and plenty of good stories. His description of Izik Ohannan’s time at SLU is great and I especially liked the Channing Frye dunk story and the Dayton return plane flight. SLU owning a bunch of old airplanes is funny in its own right.
  12. Just listened to the Earl interview. Loved it. Earl lived up to his nickname as the awesome one.
  13. Nostradamus has nothing on you. Good call.
  14. Go Bills! They were really coming together late in the year with the 5 double digit wins to end the season. That’s especially impressive when you factor in the Thatch and Jimerson absences. I was amazed by the way Perkins came on beginning with the Davidson game. Despite his juco stats, I didn’t think he looked like a double digit scorer at the D-1 level when I watched the juco all-star game. Figured he would average 9 to 9.5 ppg and thought he didn’t look like a consistent three pt. threat. Thought most of his points would come from the 12 to 18’ range because that’s the one thing
  15. SluSignGuy bringing the heavy lumber. Well done!!
  16. From following the situation closely over the past month and having a healthcare background, my guess is that May 22nd is the first possible date we can begin to open up segments of the economy. Looking at the May calendar, the 26th seems like a logical date they'll settle on as it's the Tuesday following Memorial Day.
  17. XFL closing up shop. One more victim of the coronavirus.
  18. There are two Dayton games I’d like to see, 2011 when our developing Freshmen whipped the Flyers on their Senior night, and the 2013 game where we pounded them 81-52.
  19. billikenfan05, thank you for setting this up. It’s Awesome with a capital A! Watching the first half and what a performance by the Bills. At the under 4, the D has forced 16 turnovers, and after a slow offensive start, the offense caught fire. Great first half by Rob Loe. It was 31-14 at the under 4 when I started this post, then Butler ended the half on a 9-3 run. Watching Loe and wonder if THTRB would consider setting up an interview with him? His improvement from year to year was impressive.
  20. Good post. Time for this thread to end. Missing work today as a result of this. Wife all over me about going to the doc on Monday. Probably have to.
