Your 1's are nearly impossible to argue with. I think Frasier's a 2 and I've never seen an episode of Arrested Development or Modern Family. Andy Griffith & Everybody Loves Raymond replaces those two for me.

Simpsons vs. Seinfeld & Raymond vs. Frasier in my final 4 faves. Office beat at the buzzer by Simpsons in previous round. Seinfeld wins it all.

Great response to JMC. Hard to argue for Shulman at this point... Which I hate because he's just good people.

A win over Bama today coupled with football off-field success and spring practice getting underway would equal Vols best weekend since Pearl got us into the Elite 8. Seriously. Not equivalent to, but best since, IMO.

Falcons Mike Smith has to be under the gun now, right? No more excuses for early exits at least for next 2 years.

The Bills still play football? Who knew?

Not to upset the diehard CBB fans around here... This is by far the best time of the year for B-Ball. Love the opening tournaments around Thanksgiving time and Conference tourneys & The Dance. All that fluff in the middle gets old. Exact opposite of CFB.

Is this the last Big East tourney? More importantly, will the new Catholic 7 tourney be televised or will we watch a chimney to find out who wins?

My 9 year old is in first year of kid pitch. He struck out looking in bottom of final inning for out two of a one run loss against Ringgold Rec's version of Mo Rivera Sunday. I took it harder than he did.

My personal Rushmore of players in wrong uni's: Murphy in Philly, Glavine in Muts colors, Aaron playing out the string in Brewers uni (obviously didn't witness firsthand but the pictures are truly odd), Dave Justice anywhere but Atlanta was especially shocking to me as a youngster.

I think Montana/Chiefs, Jordan/Wiz, Aaron/BrewCrew, & Favre/anywhere but Green Bay is the Rushmore. Chipper in Pinstripes would be slap-tastic. Ouch-standing indeed.

Wes Moore deserves a street name on campus. That guy just flat gets it done.

Most everyone thinks Vols are in. I need to see a deep SEC tourney run to look forward to the Dance.

Oops... Not in baseball mode yet. Substitute Discovery & Disney for FSN & MLB Network. We can deal with the kids not having Disney. Teach 'em to play outside or something...

Nice to see a team in orange play their absolute tails off in big games. Proudest I've been to be a Vol anything fan in a while. Team is on a tear. Hopefully they finish the drill & get into the dance.

My question for you is, why is college officiating so bad? There were numerous questionable calls both ways last night. And we all know how terrible the football side has been for some time.

5 channels? Food Network, History, Discovery, ESPN, Disney (3 boys + no Disney = a very agitated Mr. & Mrs. orangeguy).

Excited about tonight's game. Not expecting a big orange win, but hoping for a great game. Much as I love & respect "The Conz", how happy is Billy Donavan that Bruce Pearl is not on the sideline tonight? The man owned the Gators.

Losing Graham hurts in more ways than one. Many Vols fans want Trooper Taylor back. I'll pass, thank you.

Rushmore of best players with one team? I'm not disagreeing with any of your selections. Matt Kemp will be on there in a few years. Magic will keep that guy in Dodger blue & with talent surrounding, L.A. should wrestle the West away from San Fran in the near future.

Loria's a joke. Been a joke for years. I'll never forgive MLB for pushing Mark Cuban away while allowing a doofus like Loria to kill/regenerate/kill two franchises.

Don't watch enough "regular" TV to really weigh in on the other Rushmore. I'm a Food Network, History/Discovery kinda guy. So, I'll be the only one with Diners, Drive In's, & Dives, Iron Chef America, Man vs. Wild, & Stormchasers on my Rushmore.

Apparently, Jay Graham is leaving Vols staff for FSU. That stings a bit. Guess we need to quit looking backward, huh. Tee says no and Jay leaves for another gig. They don't owe us fans or UT anything. Still, hard for us diehards to swallow.

Your Bruce Benedict story on Twitter Saturday was gold. Great stuff, indeed.

Don't want to think about Da'Rick staying in orange last year, or Janzen Jackson the year before. Just would have prolonged the inevitable.

Danica won't win a race. These guys will continue to leave her hanging out to dry. Great race yesterday though. I just find Jimmie Johnson to be very boring.

4.4 is the biggest lie. By far.

I think McCann is the leader in Braves clubhouse now. Vocal guy, longest tenured. Plenty to be excited about the future of the franchise. Young arms, young mashers. That said, I hate strikeouts and double plays. Expect to see plenty of both this season & beyond.

May get laughed off the board here, but I'll take Cuba Gooding Jr as Rod Tidwell in Jerry Maguire for Best Supporting actor. It's not really a sports movie, but Tidwell's a great sports character. Not quite David Rickey level diva, but still a good baseline for today's special athlete.

Thought Brad Pitt was excellent in Moneyball for best actor. Can't go wrong with Hoosiers as best picture. Sandra Bullock in Blindside for best actress. For grins & giggles, give me Bobby Bouchée's momma for best supporting actress.

I still think Bray sneaks into round 1 after dazzling at the Combine. Needs to prove that his head is more than a helmet rack. Still, not watching.

I smell an academic fraud investigation coming Manziel's way. I don't like him being allowed to take all online classes because of his "fame." Not at all.

The NCAA makes me laugh out loud for real. How in the world can that institution go after Miami full bore while admittedly botching parts of the investigation? This is unfathomable to me. And I can't stand the 'Canes.

If I'm watching a Hollywood production, based on actual events, I expect embellishment. Don't really care either way as to which parts they embellish.
