    Re: RIP, Veishea

    No one is pretending that the rioting is not associated with VEISHEA. It is dumb, in my opinion, to think that the rioting has not grown to something bigger than VEISHEA itself. Taking away the...

    I can respect that view. I guess we will see how it works out.

    Re: RIP, Veishea

    So next year, these kids/adults that have somehow carried on a tradition from 1985 will magically forget it's "that time of year" because we don't use that naughty word "VEISHEA"? They end up...

    Re: RIP, Veishea

    Let's reverse that and say it's sporting events, unfortunately, that cause riots every few years. Would you be in favor of eliminating the events or doing the hard work of changing the culture?

    Re: RIP, Veishea

    I guess I could be wrong. I've never liked VEISHEA - so I don't know. I suppose there may be some activities on campus leading up to the weekend. Are you saying a club having a pancake breakfast...

    Re: RIP, Veishea

    I remember the Baylor game (and knew a guy that was taken to the hospital because he was hit by the goal post).

    The UCLA loss had a mob and the UCLA win had riots. There is also a culture of...

    Re: RIP, Veishea

    This is correct - it was a Tuesday... before VEISHEA - this should give a clue as to this being a cultural problem not an "event" problem.

    Drunken mobs congregated and moved all over campus...

    MLB: Re: 2014 Oakland A's

    I guess I don't look at the kids as commodities. I wish players were more loyal in their off-season negotiations but that can partially be contributed to the parasites.
    I simply feel bad for a...

    MLB: Re: 2014 Oakland A's

    As a huge A's fan I'm saddened by this move. Cespedes has been a big part of this team and it's ridiculous run differential. Whether they win now or not - a big piece of this team is missing. ...

    MLB: Re: 2014 Oakland A's

    Oakland is fun to watch. They have been for years. These guys have fun playing a game and it's contagious.

  12. Re: All Big 12 regular season games to air on ESPN Channels next year

    I feel bad for fans in other parts of the state that haven't been able to see the Big 12 Network games. OTA is apparently not what it used to be. When I was a teenager 20+ years ago in SE Iowa, I...

    I also don't want to hear how terribly inept the broadcasting crew is when they call us the Hawkeyes or mispronounce a name.

    Re: Alleged BIG 12 Network

    It doesn't not take "very little cash" to have cable TV. Put that money into a 401K, son, and you can sit with the old people that leave early before you turn old and wrinkled. Cable is seen as a...

    For the worst it appears. That's a problem as far as local fan base goes.

    I'm no where near poor, but I am a value-recognizer. And cable TV, unless you are paralyzed with only eyesight and the...

    Re: Alleged BIG 12 Network

    It was well before 1990 that you could watch some games on local over-the-air channels. It was that local exposure that helped Johnny get people out to games. I'm a little sick to my stomach that...

    I only listened but I'm wondering if they simply didn't have the ability to call it a turnover. Perhaps they could and that is why it was reviewed.? I don't know. But my understanding is that if...
