    Was the closest I've ever seen to a college football game feeling like a MLB game, one that stretches into 15+ innings. The chances they would respond in the exact same way over and over was ridiculously low. Great game. Maybe the most tense ending I've seen in a football game period (as an Aggie's fan).

    Lebron is doing what Lebron does, which is elevate a bad team into a legit playoff contender. With little to no real help around him.

    The Cavs sucked before Lebron, and they suck now that Lebron left. Miami is of course a different story, but they weren't going to multiple NBA Finals until Lebron came into town, and that train stopped the moment he left.

    So now he is with the Lakers, and after a slightly rocky start, they are over .500 and well on their way. On top of that, you have talks of them recruiting big names to surround him.

    First, I have heard of Carmelo Anthony. Maybe, maybe not. I don't think that would get them into a situation to contend with Golden State. But what would is the talks that next year you could see Kevin Durant come over. Now that would immediately make the Lakers right on par with the Warriors for the most stacked team in the West.

    Given that Lebron has 3-6 years left in the league, if they are able to recruit big names like Durant soon, do you think Lebron can create another mini dynasty in LA that the town hasn't experienced since the hay days of Kobe? Or is the West too stacked for that ever too happen?

    Personally, I think if Durant comes over, LA is perfectly positioned to win 2-3 championships at least until Lebron calls it a career. 3 qualifies as a dynasty. And that would make him the best and most important player in NBA history, even over MJ. Should be a really interesting final half decade for the superstar. Looking forward to it.

    I wonder how the players see this topic. Do you think they would agree that they should play until a definite win? Or do you think they like it they way it is, or that ties are acceptable?

    I think the player's commission has been lobbying for safer play all around for a long time. But not sure how they feel about the overtime rule changes. I imagine they aren't happy about more ties across the league, and would have rather the rules been changed to yeah, something more like hockey shoot outs.

    Yeah, this really was a great fight. Two completely different fighting styles. That first hard right to the face by Khabib was something that I dont think anyone was expecting to see.

    Good point. To me this proved Khabib could possibly win a stand up only fight with Conor, but Conor had next to no chance to win a ground game with Khabib.

    Here's Joe Rogan talking about fight, what happened after (briefly) and the submission.

    First of all, I dont think there should even be such a thing as a "tie" in professional sports. Play the game to quadruple overtime.. who cares? Fans would love a quadruple overtime game, in most cases anyway.

    The reason they don't play more in overtime is because of fear of injuries. The league has specifically changed the rules for OT to be shorter to avoid injuries and fatigue, which leads to injuries. But if they just changed the way the game is played in overtime, they wouldn't have to worry about it as much.

    Acuna youngest to hit a grand slam in the postseason

    Likely be a long time before that record is broken. Could also be really important for the Braves if they can manage to come back in that series.

    Knowing what Conor did with the bus situation months ago, and after watching Khabib's post fight press conference, I side with Khabib on this one. Conor and guys like him want the UFC and MMA to be all about trash talking and posturing. Khabib is the exact opposite, and wants a return to respect between fighters.

    You can only trash talk about people's family and religion for so long before consequences happen. Granted it looks bad for Khabib, but I don't blame him. I think I do blame his team for ganging up on Conor. That one is more murky. But all I can say now is they are even.

    Khabib needs to tap Conor to win. Otherwise Conor will win in a decision. That's my call.

    Aaron Judge's performance in the AL wild card game. If the Yankees make the World Series, he will have a huge part in it:

    Pretty straightforward question, but I can't fully decide where I stand: Is a tie in an NFL game just as bad as a loss? Technically speaking, a tie is like half a win, half a loss; it's a .5 on the record. In either direction depending on what you are comparing it to. But that's always still better than a full -1.0, right? It's just simple math.

    So why in the world did Indy go for it on 4th down and 4, with only 27 seconds left on the clock in overtime, on their own 42? Here's the recap, starting from the play just before, and I'm sure you can guess what happened:

    Texans vs. Colts Week 4 Highlights (link to YouTube video starts at play just before)

    So Indy could have punted and all but guaranteed the game to end in a tie. Where they would have been 1-2-1 instead of 1-3. And also don't forgot, this was a divisional game so wins, losses and ties matter even more. This call could literally mean the difference between which of these teams wins the division and goes to the playoffs.

    Indy going for it on that 4th down and not getting it almost assured them a loss. But they were already going to at best tie if they punted, and they wanted to win. Which was a real possibility. With 27 seconds and all you need is a FG, I actually totally understand the mentality of win or go home, we didn't come here for no tie.

    Curious of what others think of this: if you were the head coach in that moment, what would you have done?
