    Imagine being excited to land a big time transfer, only for him to say after a couple weeks that going to your school is "probably one of the worst decisions that I've made in my life."...

    *** Cyclone Fanatic Sports Movie Tournament: Round of 32 ***

    Y'all got some bad takes on Rudy. Easily a top 4 or 5 sports movie. Who cares if they took liberties... half of these films are fictional anyway. Rudy is top notch cinema.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to tell the wife I'm abandoning her for a month starting in mid-July. Any tips?

    EA Sports NCAA Football game

    I threw lots of INTs as it was with the old controls. New stuff sounds great, but I'm already planning a run first attack with play action off of it to hopefully open up larger throwing windows. I know I'd have a tough time otherwise... FWIW, people who got to test the game early are swearing...

    *** Cyclone Fanatic Sports Movie Tournament: Round of 64 ***

    Wow. There were very few matchups where I had seen both movies. Didn't realize how many good ones there were until doing this exercise. Looks like I've got homework.

    This paragraph excited me to no end: "Given how much the game is leaning into player skillsets and talent level mattering more than ever, the variability in picking your playbook (or creating your own) to match your talent is going to be key – and vice versa, making sure in a Dynasty you are...

    Apparently they got rid of the high school season in road to glory. That’s kind of a bummer. Feeling like you “earned” the scholarship was part of the fun for me. https://www.ign.com/articles/college-football-25-road-to-glory-mode-nil

    NCAA Settlement

    IDK, there will without a doubt be a massive gulf and those at the top will try to hoard talent. But at the end of the day, as CW has pointed out, there's only so much playing time available for each athlete. Plenty of guys would transfer out in order to get on the field in the ACC or Big 12...

    Realignment Megathread (All The Moves)

    Question for you guys, I know the prevailing wisdom is that Virginia is the second most attractive expansion candidate for the B1G. Are we sure about that? With how many people are moving from the Midwest to the south, I could easily see the B1G wanting a presence in Florida and snatching up...

    Realignment Megathread (All The Moves)

    Like I said, there's a myriad of factors that go into these decisions. But everything I said matters. Why do you think the B1G is so bullish on North Carolina and Virginia? It's not because of football success or stadium sellouts...

    Realignment Megathread (All The Moves)

    The presidents are literally the ones that vote on expansion. I guarantee you they value those metrics way more than how many tickets or beer Pitt sells at their stadiums. It's not the only thing that matters, obviously you need it to make sense with tv partners, but it's for sure a factor...

    Oh my gosh, glad it's not just me. It's way harder than it should be to find anything that's not one of the top 2 or 3 live events.

    Realignment Megathread (All The Moves)

    I've always been a big Pitt advocate. Seems to me the landscape is evolving to prioritizing big time million viewer matchups over quantity of matchups or media market size. Pitt/WV would annually be one of those types of games. But Pitt would be more than worthwhile on their own institutional...

    Realignment Megathread (All The Moves)

    I've been thinking a lot about how the ACC dominoes would fall lately... I think I agree. While I don't think it's out of the question for the SEC to stand pat at 16 if the B1G gets North Carolina +1. But in that case, I don't think the Big 12 media rights share would be that much higher than a...

    Realignment Megathread (All The Moves)

    Small price to pay to keep the streak going. Hell, trade out the EIU game that year for all I care. That would never happen, but ending the farmageddon streak is a travesty. Publicly defending the conference's tone deaf decision to end it was JP's biggest unforced error in my eyes.

    Final point and then I'll sign off for awhile: It's really odd to me how some of you are vigorously fighting for less Cyclone teams to root for as opposed to more. If you don't like baseball, you don't need to watch it. But many of us do enjoy the game and think it would be cool to have a team...

    So get rid of every sport except football, basketball, and whatever women's sports satisfies title IX then. Because nothing else draws ratings that matter. Any of you arguing against baseball by using viewership and profitability metrics need to explain to me how golf and cross country makes...
