    Mi-Fiber vs CenturyLink

    Thanks for the feedback on Mi-Fiber. Seems like a great option. I live in Polk City as well. I am happy to dump Century Link as I have had some recent issues with them.

    Point Guard Next Season

    PG is one of my concerns for next season. I love Haliburton but question his quickness, ability to penetrate and ball handling to be the primary point guard. Nixon seems like more of an off guard. Wiggington at this point in his career is not a very good decision maker but has the tools to be...

    ***Official Baylor postgame thread***

    How can you say youth is a factor? We played 8 guys tonight. 3 are transfer seniors, 1 transfer junior, 2 sophomores that started last year and 2 freshmen. That is not a youthful team. It is a very soft team that is not well coached.

    Orange Beach, AL for spring break

    My wife and I are looking at a spring break trip to Orange Beach, AL. We have 3 girls ages 15,12 and 10. From what I have read, it is not a big college spring break destination. Anyone been there over spring break? How is the weather in March? Any advice on things to do? Thanks

    Minnesota Resorts or Cabins for Summer Vacation

    In the past, I have found Cyclone Fanatic to be a great source of ideas for summer vacations. My family (wife and girls 12,10,8) are looking at going to Minnesota this summer for vacation.
