In all seriousness it's better than the State/UNC ****storm. But I agree the sheer amount of polls lately have taken away from the novelty and fun of our annual prospect rankings.

Crazy **** about to go down in the QC pretty soon.

Also, I get tired of politics this time every 4 years. Election day can't get here soon enough.

I've never failed a drug test, contrary to beliefs. Can the USADA take away all my posts now?

Wasn't sure which forum to post this in, but I think I may have made the sexiest hockey jerseys of all time.

I used to believe athletes when they protested their innocence as well. Not anymore.

It's bike riding, nobody cares.

In all seriousness, 90+% of the population will forget about this in a month or less. It sucks, and I'm sure it'll get ugly even though Lance's new stance is "screw it, I don't care".

Hell, I'll still give Lance credit for those 7 TDF wins. Not because I believe he didn't cheat, but it's ****ing cycling... EVERYONE cheats. Hell, I was hearing about people in JV sports juicing back in HS 15 years ago, people are insane if they don't think the top cyclists (IE: prettymuch everyone that's a pro) is doing it. So I'll give Lance credit for being able to beat all the other cheaters for 7 straight years.

Went with Wildcats. None of the names really seemed to fit the City, and Huskies would've been WAY to cliché lol.

I subbed them in for the Avs with Colorado's roster and am GMing atm. Kinda fun to do it with another team, even if it is make believe.

Naturally tho, my first move was to trade for Pat Dwyer, who is my all time favorite hockey player from Washington

Don't get why Red Sox fans up here are freaking out, they make out like ******* bandits in this deal.

Get two of LA's top pitching prospects, a decent OF prospect, a scrub in Loney and dump over $262M in the process? My question is what the **** are the Dodgers thinking? The only player that will have any impact for them is Gonzalez (who I think was the ringleader of the Red Sox clubhouse problems).

Dodgers are idiots. They just picked up half the roster of biggest circus in MLB. They just added $86 mil in salary for next year. Crawford and Beckett due like $150 mil more.

If what I just heard is correct. The SBI investigation into UNC will end up being epic. I've heard no way Roy Williams survives it and that's the least of their worries.

I have no dog in this ACC fight (formerly a Big East guy, trying to get on with the Big XII now) but these rivalry discussions are always good for some laughs. Frankly with the outright arrogance of Swafford and a lot of the administrators surrounding UNC, as well as the dismissive attitude of many of their fans that I know over this, I can't wait to see the **** really hit the fan.

WVU was picked to come in 2nd in the Big 12.

ACC football sucks, I find it hilarious they voted not to take WVU, and they beat Clemson 70 - 35.
WVU has more BCS wins (3-0) then the entire ACC.

I've spent a good portion of the day watching horror movies on SyFy.

And each time, sometime in the middle of whatever movie I'm watching at the time, I think to myself "Why am I doing this? I hate horror movies".

And yet I continue to watch...

Two reasons: TV sets and Academics.

WVU's trying to raise their academic profile, and some of its individual programs would quite possibly be among the best in the ACC if not the best (Music, Aerospace Engineering, Nursing, Forestry and Wildlife) but it's nowhere near enough for much of the blueblood crowd (UNC, Duke, UVa, etc.) to get the votes to get in regardless of what FSU, Clemson, and Virginia Tech might be pulling for. And in an era where it's all about trying to establish a TV network, a state with 1.4 million was a lot less appealing then it should be to the ACC regardless of what kind of football brand they bring to the table.

WVU kills it ratings wise all along the east coast when they play, especially when they play anyone decent (see WVU-Louisville when both were top 10), but the ACC doesn't care about that if they think there's only 1.4 million more tv sets they can add to a conference network down the road.
