  1. She is great thank you. Today is the eight year anniversary of the day I brought her home.
  2. Thank you. I will try to be more active but no guarantees. Hope all in the Den and elsewhere are well
  3. Hi all. I have been lurking but not posting as I am incredibly busy with work and life. But I have to stop by to share this.
  4. This is an absolute beat down.
  5. Can't recall if Alex Smith ever won a playoff game but I will take that as a guess.
  6. Kansas got throttled today and Nevada is getting their ass handed to them by fucking New Mexico.
  7. He does deserve his own thread. R i p Tyler
  8. Eric Musselman Eric Musselman's time at Nevada has put him squarely on the radar of every national coaching search. In three-plus seasons he's turned the Wolfpack into a legitimate national power and the class of the Mountain West Conference. In his first year on campus, Musselman's team went 24-14 and won the 2016 CBI. During the 2016-17 season, the Wolfpack went 28-7 and won the Mountain West's regular season and tournament titles. Last year, they went 29-8, won the Mountain West and reached the Sweet 16. And this year, Musselman has them off to a phenomenal 13-0 start and a top 10 national ranking. The 54-year-old has a ridiculous 94-29 (.764) record since arriving in Reno. After unsuccessful NBA coaching stints with the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings, Musselman has clearly found his calling in college basketball. Musselman isn't for everyone. He's fiercely competitive and driven, and is widely regarded as an offensive genius. That said, he's super intense and his personality could be a bit too strong for some fan bases. If UCLA is looking for a jolt to its basketball program, Musselman could certainly provide it.
  9. UCLA firing Alford. I dislike the last sentence. UCLA has fired coach Steve Alford, according to multiple reports. Officials at UCLA have not responded to ESPN's request for comment. An official announcement is expected Monday. Alford was in charge of the Bruins for 5½ seasons, leading them to four NCAA tournaments and three Sweet 16 appearances. This season, however, UCLA struggled mightily in nonconference play; the Bruins are just 7-6 after losing their past four games. Things hit rock bottom on Saturday, when UCLA lost at home by 15 points to Liberty. "This might be one of the most disappointing games I've had," Alford said after the Liberty loss. "Trying to reflect back throughout 28 years, and the word disappointment of just our team and how we performed. I don't know the last time I was this disappointed in a team. It did not look like us at any level, as far as how we prepped, how we practiced, how we watched film, things that we've done. The execution was extremely poor at both ends. Just very disappointed in how we played." After an 80-66 loss to Ohio State earlier this month, Alford said he had "no issue" with the constant discussions about his job and that "I'm a man of God, so I've got an audience of one." "You know, obviously with its fans, whether it be at UCLA or anywhere else, you always have those opinions," he told reporters. Alford has often been at odds with the UCLA fan base, despite his team's Sweet 16 appearances. Twice in the past three years, a banner was flown over campus calling for Alford's firing. In 2016, it read "UCLA deserves better, fire Alford!" while last spring it read, "Final Fours not First Fours #FireAlford." After a 15-17 season in 2015-16, Alford returned a one-year contract extension and wrote a letter acknowledging his poor performance. Alford signed another one-year contract extension after the 2016-17 season, an agreement that raised his current buyout to $3.6 million. Alford, 54, was hired in 2013 after UCLA fired Ben Howland. He had spent the previous six seasons at New Mexico, leading the Lobos to three NCAA tournament appearances. Prior to his time in Albuquerque, Alford was the head coach at Iowa for eight seasons and Southwest Missouri State for four seasons. A former Indiana high school legend, Alford was a two-time college All-American at Indiana before spending four seasons in the NBA. UCLA could go a number of ways in its search for Alford's replacement, with former Chicago Bulls and Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg, TCU coach Jamie Dixon and former Phoenix Suns coach and UCLA alum Earl Watson among the likely candidates, multiple sources told ESPN. Oklahoma City Thunder coach Billy Donovan and Nevada coach Eric Musselman have also been mentioned in connection with the job in the past.
  10. In an otherwise entirely unforgettable season., 49ers TE George Kittle sets single-season receiving yards record for tight ends. Now back to Bracketology for me. Those of you with relevant NFL teams, have fun.
  11. Game Two not looking promising for those wanting a contest.
  12. Dodgers made an interesting trade today.
