    Alright enough time has passed. Time to post highlights and recap, and to talk about that fight...

    Speaking of, oddly not too much to say other than that was like a boy vs a grown man fight. I'm sorry Stipe but I don't think you should have taken that fight being 30 pounds lighter. Good on you for trying though, you're one tough dude. But Ngannou is just as scary as everyone says and I'm not sure anyone can take more than a punch or two from him right now.

    He needs competition closer to his weight class at this point. I'm not talking UFC weight class, I mean what they actually weigh on fight day.

    Sucks. I wrote about this in another thread and really thought they were going to go this time. Strong start but fell off midway through.

    The long awaited extra game is now a reality; the NFL just switched from a 16-game regular season league to a 17-game one. Adding an extra game is a big deal for such a violent sport, especially one where player's careers on average are already very short.

    Seems the players have mixed emotions over this, but should they? Having an extra game will ultimately mean more money for the league, which in turn is more money and bigger contracts for the sport and all it's players. So on a per game basis, I would think the players should be compensated the same. I can only see an issue with this if they ended up making less per game.

    I get the injury concern with another game but I think the finances have always outweighed injury concerns so I think another way to look at this is players will now make more money per season, just have to avoid injuries more.

    That's pretty awesome. Though for anyone else watching this he doesn't even try until the 8:20 minute mark. Not saying the video isn't good all the way through but really why you are watching is just to see the shot.

    That's embarrassing. I wonder if they will surpass the Rockets this year who lost 20 games in a row. They just snapped their losing streak but I can't imagine they have any fans left.

    We have Baylor vs Arkansas and Oregon State vs Houston in the Elite 8 so far. The way Baylor and Houston have played I gotta think it comes down to them in the Final Four, which will be a great game.

    Will know the other two matchups tomorrow but expecting Gonzaga vs USC and Michigan vs Alabama.

    The 49ers trade up to get the 3rd overall pick from the Dolphins, giving away two #1s in future drafts to do it. In turn Miami drops down to #12 spot. Miami in turn then trades with Philly for the #6 pick and gives Philly one of those future #1s for next year, dropping Philly to #12.

    Follow me so far? :)

    So why would the 49ers do this? Everyone expects at least 3 qbs to go in the first 4-5 picks. So this clearly suggests they are looking to replace Jimmy G, but question is with who exactly? Are they that confident in the top qbs left on the board after Lawrence that they are good with whoever isn't taken #2? Or do you think they know who will be there at #3?

    I think you can't gamble with future picks like that unless you are 100% sure your guy will be there for you. I guess we can't rule out them taking a non-qb, but I don't think you would have had to move up that high for that purpose.

    BearDown Wrote: They certainly are kicking butt and taking names. History says that their luck will eventually run out, but who knows? Maybe they will surprise us all and make a deep run into the tourney.

    I'm sure Oral Roberts fans don't consider it luck. And I would have to agree.. looking at the team stats for both games the stat that pops for me is steals. They had 10/2 vs Ohio State and 12/7 vs Florida. That's enough to turn a tight game into your advantage.

    Though I do have to say looking at all the other stats like FG% and rebounds, it is a little bit of a wonder how they pulled off both wins. I think they have been playing clutch in the last few minutes so that's probably it.

    Here's hoping they have more magic left in the tank vs Arkansas.

    Surfing, nice. Never thought of that one but that's cool. Logistic issues though, guess they will either have to pick host cities that have good surf spots or spend tons on artificial wave pool setups?
