This time, Chargers are in over their heads

And how many of those teams had winning records? I thought living in Vegas you might know more about odds. Guess not.  (Jan 9, 2008 | post #174)

Colts' MVP? give it to the reserves

One reason I'm not worried is Tony, Peyton and the rest of the Colts don't underestimate their opponents. The Colts are rested, healthy, battle tested and ready. This isn't 2 years ago. They'll come out with all guns blazing. Trust me, it's all ready over for the Chargers.  (Jan 9, 2008 | post #9)

Let's just be honest Bob. It's going to be a beat down. The Chargers and their fans better enjoy the first quarter because that's the only point in the game they'll be within single digits of the Colts.  (Jan 9, 2008 | post #28)

With that I agree. I checked foxsports.com after a reference was mentioned in the Star and found Jeff Goodman last week listed Mike as tied for 4th in the country in the player of the year race. He is the cog that makes the Dawg's machine run. Green is maybe the best point guard in college.  (Jan 8, 2008 | post #23)

You take me wrong. I'm a diehard fan for life and hope for great things from coach Stevens. I am estatic with 14-1 and expect the Dawgs to be 15-1 after Thursday. The fact is I want them to do major damage in the tourney. To do that though they will have to get that offense firing on all cylinders. As far as making BU fans look bad because I question some things on the court. I guess as a fan you expect us all to check our brains at the door and be rah rah clones like you. The fact is none of are ripping coach Stevens. I really respect the guy. I think he will be great. I just see some problems with the offense and would like to see those problems go away. I think voicing my concerns makes for intelligent discussion among fans and I don't think it makes me a "bad fan." Never thought I'd have to defend myself against a fellow Bulldog fanatic. I'm ashamed of you. By the way the NFL coach you quoted is Herm Edwards and he is a bad coach with a rotten team and a rotten record. The quote was made in response to the question about whether his Jets would throw their final game so they could secure the worst record and the first draft pick that year in the NFL.  (Jan 8, 2008 | post #12)

Indy sports radio: Triple the talk begins

I agree with that. Rips anyone who doesn't bow to his reasoning. I don't listen to Rome for the same reason. Dan Patrick isn't that good either, but still beats Cowherd.  (Jan 8, 2008 | post #33)

Colts to face a recharged San Diego

They'll probably be parked ones, thus the flat nose. Don't worry. After Sunday the intellectual elitist will be gone along with the Chargers. I pity him and I feel sorry for the Chargers for the beatdown they are about to receive.  (Jan 8, 2008 | post #317)

Indy sports radio: Triple the talk begins

I love Greg and the guys on XL, but ESPN pulled/didn't renew their contact with 950 and as far as I know they are not on any local radio station at the moment. Although I'm not dying to hear The Herd I would like to tune into Mike and Mike in to morning before switching back to 950 for the rest of the day. Is ESPN on locally anymore or am I going to be tied to my tv if I want to enjoy Mike and Mike?  (Jan 8, 2008 | post #15)

Bulldogs thrive as road warriors

I personally did see some improvement on offense last night. I was glad for that, but the Dawgs are still playing far from their potential at the moment. Graves and Campbell are both off their games as of yet and I saw several poor decisions made on offense again last night. Sometimes they pass too much or make bad passes and other times they are too quick to shoot when they should be passing the ball. One example is a time in the second when Howard was driving from the right side with an open lane and he chose to pass rather than finish. The result was a missed long shot rather than a basket in close and/or a trip to the foul line. Maybe I'm expecting too much for the moment. I hope Butlerfan is right and they will be playing at the top of their game come March. I'm just a little frustrated seeing a team that should be more talented than last year's by far play so sloppy on offense. They are 14-1 and should be 15-1 later this week. The Colts struggled through a lot of games last year and looked really rough at times, and they won it all. The Dawgs keep winning and at the end of the day that is the most important thing.  (Jan 8, 2008 | post #7)

I feel sorry (pity) for ANY team that has to face our healthy and rested Colts team.  (Jan 7, 2008 | post #16)

Even if Bulldogs win, they stand to lose

Just keep winning and the RPI will take care of itself. Same with the Tourney. Last year with 4 minutes to go Butler was leading Florida and that close to the elite eight. No matter where they sit all they need to do is take care of business.  (Jan 7, 2008 | post #4)

Soon many will know Stevens' name

I wouldn't be too concerned about losing Stevens just yet. I really doubt their are many schools looking at him this moment. Lickliter had to make it to the sweet 16 twice and be cheated out of a tourney bid in the year before his first trip before he got a sniff. As far as Stevens goes I'd like to see him get this vetran offense clicking on all cylinders. Green is great as always, but Campbell only came a little bit out of his shell toward the end of the Valpo game and A.J. (with the exception of the final shot against SIU) has been missing in action. I've said it before and I'll say it again, if this offense gets clicking the Dawgs will hang with anyone in the country. If they don't then March may be a very short month for us.  (Jan 6, 2008 | post #37)

Bulldogs just lean on Green

Not that I totally disagree with everything you've said, but actually Butler did beat Gonzaga last year and beat Texas Tech this year who was fresh off their victory over the Zags. Will Butler ever be a top ten program year in and year out? Most likely not. But if Campbell and Graves get ack on track they will easily be this year. On a side note I'm glad to see thar Mike Green is getting the national recognition he deserves. I've told anyone who would listen that he is one of the best point guards in the country. I'm glad others are seeing it as well.  (Jan 6, 2008 | post #27)

I Believe In:

Expanding my mind and horizons. I enjoy sports, but they do not define my life. It's important to continually be learning and interacting in life. I've met so many people from other cultures in my time it has really educated me to what is important in life. Also reading books that challenge my mind and take me out of my comfort zone is another key to growth.
