    Texas Football: Tom Herman Out, Steve Sarkisian In

    I use Surly for the freely posted premium info, but the football board is incredibly craptacular. The recruiting board is a lot more sane when active (see: not the past 3 months).

    Texas Football: Tom Herman Out, Steve Sarkisian In

    Agreed with Canderson that the Inside Texas guys are good for more of the administration/actual football stuff and were ahead of the game for the coaching search, as far as recruiting goes The Football Brainiacs have been the best in my opinion. Of course this changes with every new coaching...

    The Ringer

    Honestly been hilarious to see them freak out over this and Simmons dedicating 30 mins at the end of a pod to plug that he's doing a weekly Challenge thing that won't even be on his main feed. Feels like they think Bill was a sport savant that had awesome takes up till Grantland and that that...

    NBA Offseason--and now INTO the season.

    The Lakers option always required one/two of them to take paycuts, Miami can absolutely make the space if that's where Giannis wants to go, and Dallas is still a very appealing option. I'd personally love if he stayed in Milwaukee because the roster is already aging in a significant way and I...

    2020 College Hoops Thread

    Texas being 9-1 in our last 10 vs UNC is one of the weirdest matchup stats I'm aware of

    2020 NBA Draft discussion

    Highly recommend looking into his backstory. Basic gist is, was one of those "nations #1 7th/8th grader" types, quit basketball, ballooned up to 270 by his senior year of high school when he decides he wants to give it another go, makes his way through prep school and a JUCO year before making...

    NBA Offseason--and now INTO the season.

    He is/was the only player the Lakers had to match salary with in trades, thus...everyone threw him into potential trades. Literally every other player they could give up right now (excluding KCP who would be a s&t) is at 5 million and under.

    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    Alright so we've got 238th in real +/- In the 400s in PIPM -5 Net RTG on the 2nd best regular season team in the league (by far the worst of any of the Lakers that played regularly) So he played ~10 mpg with Lebron, 12 without. With LeBron their net was +3 (not exactly good for a Bron...

    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    He is quite literally the worst player in the league that was getting significant minutes by a ton of metrics, period. Brian Windhorst would be a better defender. Smith won't be called on to defend PGs (he'd still be better than Rondo though by default, that is how bad Rondo is). That'll fall...

    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    Losing Rondo helps their ability to defend point guards.

    Rethinking Barstool?

    This is pretty much where I'm at, it sucks for Tyler but Portnoy basically used them as a prop in his campaign of being uncancellable.

    January 2020 General NBA Game Thread

    Gobert got roasted by Finney-Smith and Doncic several times late in the 4th and fucked up a rotation that led to a 3 to give the Mavs the lead, but cool he made that one play I guess.
