    2019 Masters

    Dwarfed? While we may debate back and forth on the margins, Tiger Woods is dwarfed by no one. And, to put it in a context that I believe all New Englanders and their own current 41-yo GOAT can understand...Tiger, at the age 43, did something in a sport that historically has not been kind to or...

    2019 Masters

    Woods 15. Nicklaus 18. I can maybe see a sliver of a potential for 3 more for Tiger. But honestly, I doubt it. The field has simply become so much more competitive. Just look at this Masters to see proof. Many, many players in it with Tiger not having to wait for one to fade or to overtake...

    2019 Masters

    This year's offering was soundly led off by the inaugural Augusta National Women's Amateur Golf Championship, won by Jennifer Kupcho in a great march with Maria Fassi. It was well worth the watch. Great golf all around. An interesting observation by SBNation:

    Mike Trout: 10 years, $360 million

    Yeah, I wasn't sure and admittedly didn't spend a bunch of time checking. I looked at his Baseball Reference page and it seemed at first...and very brief...glance that it was an attempt at interpolating from the season-summary lines in the seasons in which he passed those respective...

    Mike Trout: 10 years, $360 million

    I don't have anything to add to the thread, per se, but a friend of mine's son passed along the following [unverified] stats on Trout. after... 311 games = .311 BA 445 games = .445 OBP 596 games = .596 SLG 1,002 games = 1.002 OPS

    2019 PGA Tour

    As much as I dislike him, Justin Thomas put on a show yesterday. And, yeah, the altitude, but driving the 450 yard green at #10 on Saturday (the standard in the background say 406, and the video is labeled as 415, but the tournament card says 450, and I believe the official distance was...

    Ty Law inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame

    Agreed...on both the awesome and surprise Looking at Football Reference, his closest comps are Darrel Green and Roger Wehrli, neither of whom have received the invitation to a gold jacket. In any case, great players as well...but nowhere near Champ Bailey. Don't let this be construed as a...

    College Football - General Discussion

    I doubt he gave very serious consideration to Penn State, even though he was a former commit. He would have run into a competitive buzz saw to start - without any real guarantee he'd win. That isn't the case at UCF who, while they have had very good starting QBs the last few years, have not had...

    College Football - General Discussion

    The NCAA transfer portal is quite busy in its first year. I haven't looked at any comparisons to the # of transfers in previous years before the portal, but for some reason there seem to be way more players considering transfers this year. 247Sports provides the current status of players that...

    College Football - General Discussion

    With apologies if this has been raised somewhere earlier in the thread, which admittedly I have not digested in its entirety. I think we all pretty much suspect that any future changes will be driven by $$ to some greater extent than it already is. IMO, it is unlikely that the NCAA executive...
