    Legendary HR King Hank Aaron passed away this morning at the age of 86.

    Not quite old enough to remember watching him play, but always impressed me as being a true gentleman. Of all his statistical accomplishments, the one that stands out the most to me is the fact that he hit 20 or more home runs every season from age 21 to age 40. RIP Hammer.

    Former Brewster asst George McDonald joins Bielema staff

    I think that you are correct that it sometimes has significance. Other times, it is a way to give the appearance of a promotion or justify a salary increase. Rules have changed over the years, but there have been times when an NFL team could block a coach under contract from making a lateral...

    STrib: Gophers' 2021 football schedule is something: Ohio State for openers, Cornhuskers for closers

    I don't think that there is much that they can say at this point. I am sure that they are hoping that 3-4 months from now there will be a robust vaccination program in full swing and some reason to hope that there will be some return to normalcy this fall, but hard to know what they can plan...

    Georgia Southern Commited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Things are different right now with COVID giving everyone a "free year," but the traditional rule is five years to play four. So, in your hypothetical, if you graduated this spring in four years but had only played three or fewer years, you could come back in the fall for another, final year of...

    Shama: A local radio source said a start-up of WCCO Radio’s long airing and popular “Sports Huddle” show remains indefinite.

    Might be best to just let it go. It was Sid's vehicle, better to start over with something else in my opinion.

    Former Gophers DC Tracy Claeys Announces Retirement

    Not sure about the "active investor" part, but he always struck me as a guy who could live on about $30,000 a year and didn't seem to have much else to spend the money on. If I recall correctly, he did buy the bar/restaurant in his home town for the family to run, but I think that closed after...

    Hall of Fame Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda dies at 93

    Not too many managers these days who are bigger celebrities than most of their players. I loved Tommy as a Slim Fast spokesman. Here's a Tommy quote on his relationship with food: When we win, I’m so happy I eat a lot. When we lose, I’m so depressed, I eat a lot. When we’re rained out, I’m so...

    All Things P.J. Fleck Rumor Mill Thread - Listed as Candidate for Other Jobs

    I don't think he would abandon RTB or his culture because he believes that's the way to build a program. Part of the over the top public pronouncements, slogans and endless acronyms is driven by his commitment to basic principles and those won't change much. But some of his bombastic nature is...

    Brandon Johnson/Marcus Carr and the Hand of God

    Carr played 43 minutes, scored 30 points and had 8 assists. He hit crucial shots in regulation. And this will forever be known as the Brandon Johnson game. Beautiful.
