    My guess would be Bayern are looking around Europe and seeing how well these young managers fresh of long playing careers in the modern games such as Arteta, Motta, and of course Xabi Alonso are doing and believe that under the right circumstances Vincent Kompany can flourish. It's call FC...

    Locked in on Timberwolves when it first posted last night on the money line at (-175) Draft Kings already has it up to (-205) as of this morning. I think the Mavs got what they wanted, and know the series is well in their hands now even if they only get the split. I can't believe nothing else...

    Favorite player ever. In my opinion, the greatest leader of this generation of footballers. It will always be sad that his body failed him so many times, or he'd be right up there with the best center backs of this millennium. I was nervous for him when he "reportedly" turned down the Chelsea...

    I would rank it the following for recent memory: 1. Atl. Madrid winning La Liga in 2013-2014, especially going to the Camp Nou on the final day of the season and getting a result. Truly amazing season to win La Liga over both Messi and Ronaldo in thier prime. 2. Leverkusen this season...

    Have a Atalanta $25 ticket to win $700 I think I may just wait until the last ten minutes when Atalanta is likely up a goal, and hedge out then...because Leverkusen is for sure going to come back and score (2) in the final ten minutes + stoppage time. It's been thier MO for the past month or two...

    Yes, its a good point. The likelihood is whomever plays in the final it will be very cagey. I just personally felt as if PSG vs either of Bayern vs Madrid would have forced it to be appointment television. I understand that PSG is an easy team to root against though, so I get it. I honestly felt...

    I’m a little disappointed in it to be honest. If my boys aren’t in it, then at least I’d like to watch a good final. This is likely the worst BvB team in the past decade, possibly more? They will be a massive underdog in the final, and it likely won’t be an attractive game with BvB playing...

    PSG will likley take a long look at Olise this summer to replace Mbappe. It could be smart for him to move to PSG and increase his chances of getting a call up for France before World Cup 26 Eze "should" go to Spurs in my opinion, and they could really use him. Obviously. However, I think...

    Hate to be that guy, but this could alter his career terribly. His strength is his pace, and it is no guarantee even with modern medicine that he ever gets that back post surgery / recovery. Best of luck to him, but this is a gut punch. He has finally found the right club spot for himself, and...

    '18 SC QB Sam Hartman (Notre Dame Transfer)

    I just double checked the coaching staff to make sure I didn’t miss any connection, and don’t see anything. Kliff Kingsbury offensive scheme for a QB with limited arm strength, I just don’t see it.

    '18 SC QB Sam Hartman (Notre Dame Transfer)

    Honestly, not very surprised by it. Sam was a loyal servant to the program, but his limitations are obvious. Interesting decision to sign for a team with (4) QB’s already on the roster that have semi decent pedigrees. Going to be a tough battle for him to make the practice squad against Jake...

    Not going to agree with that. He won a Champions league and FA Cup at Chelsea. If anything Chelsea made his career way more then destroyed it. He had been sacked by West Brom before taking over as caretaker / interim at Chelsea. If it weren't for Chelsea, he likely would have managed for middle...

    What managerial careers has it destroyed though, except possibly Potter’s which time will tell? Sarri, Conte, Mourinho, Tuchel, Ancelotti all were given great opportunities at top jobs after they were sacked. Most of them won league titles even after they were sacked, and I think a lot of United...

    $$$ There is a reason Graham Potter hasn't had to work in close to a year.

    Looking at the NIT participants from last season, its looks like we have a 0% chance of getting an invite this year even with this late season impressive run. Two straight vs top 25 Kenpom teams is great. Unfortunately, no team with a losing record was invited in 2023, so we probably don't stand...

    2023-24 Notre Dame Men's Basketball

    I do truly think that as well. I hope we’re both proven correct Crowd was great tonight. Great to see the students and community come out on senior night, even for a team that doesn’t have any tournament aspirations.

    2023-24 Notre Dame Men's Basketball

    It just makes me a little nervous with the transfer portal to fully buy in, but if coach shrews can keep the spine of this team in tact and continue to add through recurring and portal adds this program has a chance to be something to contend with in a year or two.

    Very impressive week for coach Shrews! Props to the whole team! Very impressive second half performance tonight with the big guy in foul trouble for the majority of it.

    '25 MS QB Deuce Knight (Notre Dame Verbal)

    My hunch is that this time next year Kiffin will be the Head Coach at Florida. Napier seems likely to struggle again in his third year. Kiffin has a stacked roster with numerous top 25 recruiting classes in a row + important transfer portal pickups.

    Lame that Atalanta and Sporting Lisbon face each other in the last 16 after just being in the same group. Should be some nice ties. Interested to see how serious Liverpool and Leverkusen take it with thier domestic titles being far more important to thier fans.
