There hsa been several Atlanta Braves uniforms I never liked.
The powder blue of Dale Murphy's era:
And the mid 70s with the stylized feather on the sleeves and the little cursive "a" on the caps:
Bispy, yuup, Brooke and Derek.
Still time to get them a belated wedding gift:
JG, just really noticed the title of today's article...costumes? Uh, UNIFORMS! :)
Worst baseball uni? Chicago White Sox with their bermuda shorts in 1976
I don't like the tops either. Looks like a softball team for a company team sponsored by Ralph Lauren. And yes, that is the roadrunner, Ralph Garr on first and Minnie Minosa behind him.
What say yall on the newest NFL idea of moving back extra points to the 25 yard line, making it a 42 yard attempt? I like it, more teams will go for two points. Put some excitement in the game.
Stewwie, you are thinking of the CBIT and CIT tournaments for those not in the NCAA/NIT tournaments. To host in the CBIT/CIT tournaments does require a good deal of cash, roughly $30,000 in prior years for the CIT and roughtly $60,000 for the CBIT. I don't think you pay to be a road team, but we would never see them in the Roundhouse without some significant cash.
My guess is that with the new agressive AD and coach, we would try to get in the CBIT or CIT tournament if we lose in Asheville, but have no idea if we would have the money to host. Require lots of quick ticket sales and some good sponsorship.
We are probably good enough for the those tournaments, but being good isn't always the invitation that gets you in the door.
thanks to a friend of mine for this:
The CBI has a minimum ticket guarantee, the amount a school pays to host a game: The guarantees are $35,000 for first-round games, $50,000 for the quarterfinals and $75,000 per game for the semifinals and the best-of-three finals.

So I am GUESSING we might get in, but be a road team.
chas9, UK might actually have better teams year in and year out if Cal quit signing all 5 stars. Sign one or two and a bunch of 3 and 4 stars and let them actually become a team after playing together for several years. Signing almost whole new teams every year is a huge crapshoot, win some lose some. UK probably has the most talent in college this year, but far from being the best team.
A big shoutout and thanks to Chattanooga's Zuperman, Z Mason! He played hard and well. Just think what he could have done if the Mocs had any other inside threat?
Billy In Brainerd, not sure I will be there, but might stop by for a quick 99 cent beer and some free fried pickles.
JoMo11 mentioned the guy that UTK should try to get, Gregg Marshall, not Bruce Pearl. Gregg may be an a**, but he wins, and wins, and wins. Who cares if 32,000 people want Pearl back, they are the same ones wanting Phil Fulmer back. Time has marched on, yet these UTK fans have have remained rooted in their past glory.
Remember the first game for Fred in Atlanta, was watching on tv. Had the extra fun of the big fire in the club level just before the game. Smoke and flames boiling out of the windows, but play on!

Speaking of Duvall, if you have netflix, rent Get Low, and enjoy him at his best.

If the media went out and interviewed 10 people on the street about Michael Sam and assume that 8 of them could basically care less if he was gay or straight and 2 of the 10 were against him because he was gay, guess which ones would get shown on the news that evening? I bet that both of the "anti" Michael Sam interviews would get face time.
I sense the vast majority of the people don't care one way or the other about Michael Sam, yet the media keeps the story in the news. Are the media the ones with a problem?
