Sources: Bengals QB A.J. McCarron nearly traded to Browns

The Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns failed to work out a trade that would have sent quarterback AJ McCarron to Cleveland, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

According to Schefter, the Bengals notified the league of the proposed trade at 3:55 p.m. ET, and the Browns notified the league shortly after 4 p.m. ET. Because the Browns were late, the league denied the trade. Cleveland protested with the league asking that the trade be approved. The NFL rejected the Browns protest...

Non idiot version:

If Kershaw was going to pitch,  why not just have him start?  Have him pitch his 60 pitches and switch out after that?

If instant replay is going to be a thing in football, why don't they put cameras right on the goal line rather than 10 yards past the line so that the replays are showing the play at an angle rather than straight on?

Also, watching the Penn St./Michigan St. game, which started at 12pm, and now at 6:20pm the fourth quarter just started  :laugh:

No passes thrown by army in the army airforce game.  Kind of nutty.  I like watching those service academies because of those option formations, but 0 passes is kind of crazy even for an option run team

IMO it's wise to focus on the boots on the ground in a case like this, in which the air force will have a distinct tactical advantage in the skies.

That was really sad. And boy did Ole Miss disgrace themselves last night. You would think that a program reeling from so much scandal would try to focus on demonstrating character and class. But nope. I mean, when your players and fans make Auburn look classy in comparison, then you're really hitting the bottom of the barrel. I had no dog in the Egg Bowl hunt, but Miss State sure looked like the true winners in my book.

Now let's get ready for the Iron Bowl Sat night! I confess that I'm really nervous about this one.

Well, that was a rough one. Congrats to Auburn. My Crimson Tide played poorly and Auburn played great. I wasn't shocked that we lost. With our many significant injuries I knew that Auburn had a good chance of beating us. I was, however, shocked by our uncharacteristic penalties and mistakes. That's something you rarely see from a Nick Saban coached team. So again, congrats to Auburn on a well deserved win. But I'm still just as proud as ever to be a BAMA fan today.

ROLL TIDE!

I think college football is the only football that I can even tolerate other people watching.
I have no mercy for the professional football fans. Why should I?
Because let's face it, America: America's pastime is baseball, and professional football is Hallmark sports.

I don't know how I feel about this year in college football.

Toledo finally won the Mac and they're 11-2, but that's something of a small disappointment.   They got crushed by Ohio, they aren't ranked,  and they had a decent shot at a new years bowl.

The big ten got snubbed out of the playoffs for two flipping SEC teams,  and frankly Alabama had a soft schedule.

Notre Dame  collapsed at the end of the season losing to maybe one of the few schools I hate more than the SEC schools, Miami... who also beat Toledo.

The Big Ten bowl schedule looks competitive and it would be very difficult to call any of those games other than Northwestern should beat Kentucky and Iowa should beat BC.  This is the first time in a long time the big ten has had even-ish matchups.... Probably because they failed to make the playoffs.

The MAC has a fairly favorable schedule for once this year,  they should end up with a winning record.   Toledo plays Appalachia State,  should be a good game... if Toledo wins they should be ranked.   It'll also be the last chance Logan Woodside and Terry Swanson play,  both especially Woodside have potential in the NFL.

Notre Dame plays LSU,  I think Notre Dame should win,  but that's probably a fair matchup.   It kind of stinks being a Midwestern school in bowl,  almost all the bowl games are played a level up and in the enemies own backyard. Oh well.  I still say send the darn southerners and beach bums to play at least one major bowl game in Chicago or Detroit... see how they like it.

If I can muster to watch anything this disappointing bowl season other than maybe a Toledo bowl,  it probably  won't be the playoffs.   I can't stand Georgia or Alabama, and Clemson means nothing to me.   if I'm picking a team to root for it'll be Oklahoma.

Straight up bowl picks for Big 10 (no spread):

Iowa vs B.C:  Iowa

Purdue vs Arizona:  Arizona

MSU vs Wazzu:  Wazzu

Northwestern vs Kentucky: Northwestern

OSU vs USC: USC

Penn State vs Washington: PSU

Wisconsin vs Miami: Miami

Michigan vs south Carolina: Michigan

As for the MAC games: I think Northern Illinois will lose to Duke, Ohio will beat UAB, CMU will win, Akron got smoked already freaking Lane Kiffens Florida team.   No comment on Toledo vs Appalachia State.  No comment on Notre Dame.

Also,  is anybody paying attention to recruiting?  The Big Ten East looks like it is going to be loaded with talent.   OSU and Penn State so far have top 5 classes; MSU Wishigan, and Maryland(!) are all in the top 25.  Former Western Michigan coach PJ Fleck seems about to give Minnesota a historic and possible 25 squad for the Big Ten West.   Wisconsin as well has the potential to hit the top 25.  The next couple years may be a heckuva a couple years for the Big Ten.

1. Alabama didnt even deserve to be in the CFB, but congratulations are still in order.

2. Finally a bills playoff game, too bad the coaching is terrible.

3. Can it be baseball season yet? I love hocey, but Sabres have been terrible lately.

4. T20 cricket has proved to be a fantastic sport.

5. NFL needs to go away. the disregard for CTE is disgusting.

6. Hopefully l'OM can decide to play even better, and finish the season in a champions league spot

People talking like, "last XFL didn't make it, but this will be different! Vince McMahon is a genius!"

What? Just about everything McMahon has done outside of wrasslin has been a disaster. Besides the horrible XFL experiment: he had a big failed thing about some restaurant in Times Square (which they used to broadcast segments from weekly trying to drum up business), had a failed bodybuilding federation, had a failed supplement business, their attempt at some kind of movie production company/studio has been horrible and most of their movies are god awful, most of their video games for a decade or more have been considered crap or mediocre at best (that's developed/published by others, but WWE obviously hasn't taken any steps to force improvements), and his wife Linda McMahon spent ungodly amounts of money to lose two Senate races (though Trump threw her a bone).

Even with wrestling he's at best a good promoter and horrible creative mind. Most of his 80s stars had been built in the local territories long before he got his hands on them (Hogan, Andre, Savage, etc.)  He continually saddles wrestlers with stupid gimmicks, and it's only after the wrestlers break out of their gimmicks and are allowed to do something different that they get huge--both Stone Cold and The Rock were given absolutely lame gimmicks, and it's only because they were themselves at times and got over on their charisma that anything ever happened with them. McMahon had what should have been one of the biggest and most lucrative wrestling angles in history (the invasion) fall into his lap for the price of a pizza and 2 liter of Mt. Dew, and he absolutely blew it because his ego couldn't allow him to actually make even mildly-competent business decisions when it came to his former competitor.


tl;dr - Vince McMahon is a completely incompetent businessman, and if the XFL succeeds at all it'll be because McMahon contributes money and little else, and other more talented people are allowed to do their thing

LeBron is supposedly the greatest player that ever lived, and yet people have completely given up on the Cavs winning this series. I never gave up on Jordan. Never. I always believed he would find a way to win, and he did. The LeBronists have no faith in him, yet they keep telling us he's better than MJ. smh.

Caps won the Stanley Cup.
boo.  :P
But Ovechkin finally got one, so good for him  ;)
Congratulations to Alexander the Gr8! I'm not a Caps fan, but even I got sick of him carrying an 800-pound gorilla on his back for his entire career. Finally, his legendary contributions to hockey can be recognized, because he was able to put his name (and those of his teammates) on Lord Stanley's Mug.

Many years!

Worse flopper: LeBron or Neymar?

LeBron is supposedly the greatest player that ever lived, and yet people have completely given up on the Cavs winning this series. I never gave up on Jordan. Never. I always believed he would find a way to win, and he did. The LeBronists have no faith in him, yet they keep telling us he's better than MJ. smh.

Yeah, I don't quite get that.
