SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

I don't think anyone is so annoyed by it to stop watching the sport

Guess my vote was a spoiled ballot.

Seriously, I'll watch World Cup playoff matches, but nothing else. For me the whole pace and feel of the game gets destroyed at every flop.

SportsFilter: The Saturday Huddle

Wow, go UConn. What a totally unexpected run they've had this month.

Best guards in the country by a mile, great defence, great coaching. Kentucky has 8 players that would start, had they enrolled at UConn, in front of everyone but Napier.

This guy could have helped by staying at UConn. Not just UConn, but his own future. Blew a chance to go first round.

Knucklehead move.

Boo on Connecticut for mucking up the works in the NCAA

Appears UConn has found another coach who can draw blood from a stone. And to pull off that game against a well balanced Izzo coached squad yet.

At this point I reluctantly believe nobody can stop Kentucky. Too much talent, too much size, and for the first time in ages playing almost like a basketball team.

DeSean Jackson released by the Eagles

Hernandez has taught them well

Taught them how to disassociate the organization from accepting any responsibility. The Patriots brass sole focus is on winning. Expect Jackson to have a visit soon.

Detroit Tigers, Miguel Cabrera agree to 8 year extension

Guess I missed the news about Brian Cashman moving to the Tigers this offseason.

Defenders on that goal look as if the play was scripted. Nice run, though.

SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle

Pretty much an annual headline recently ....

"X pulls off the biggest upset in the tournament beating Duke"

Which isn't really accurate at all. They were a 4th place team in their conference losing to another conference's regular season and tournament champion and the only way the term upset can be applied is the initial seeding of the 2 teams. Duke is perennially over rated by 3 or 4 seeds.

Enter the SportsFilter NCAA Bracket Contest

which has a 1 in 9.2 quintillion chance of happening

Made the mistake of using a Chevy Cobalt platform for my time machine (couldn't afford the DeLorean) and lost the whole damn thing to an ignition switch malfunction.

We'll meet at the border, grum

Be careful, H - grum is known to support a terrorist organization .. The Leafs, who have been terrorizing their fans for decades.

I'm in.

Odds of me winning the Spofi pool are about the same.

Interesting, as some members of the Jets have quit sports as well.

SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle

No Big East or ex-Big East team has a top notch squad this year. Louisville might have garnered consideration if Chane Behanan hadn't got kicked out of the program.

Still not surprising that the most of the teams from last year's Big East are at the top of their conferences.

Virginia has been the only team in the ACC that has played consistently well all year. Carolina either plays like the best team in the country or like a division 2 team, Duke is good at home but plays well below their talent level otherwise, and Syracuse has had some bad injuries down the stretch.

Broncos will easily fill Decker's role and have a few million per year to devote to areas of true weakness.

Cowboys Release DeMarcus Ware

You thinking closer to 5-11 this year

Dallas Cowboys 2014 Schedule

Home: New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, New Orleans Saints, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts

Away: New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks, Chicago Bears, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans

Cowboys benefit from playing in a division where the best team, the Eagles, are at best progressing along a rebuild effort. Redskins and Giants are at or nearing rock bottom. Six games against that level of competition has got to yield 3 wins for any NFL team.

Jacksonville, Houston - another 2 probable wins.

St.Louis, Chicago, and Tennessee would not be major upsets but wouldn't expect more than 1 win.

5 - 11 or 6 -10 sounds about right.

Cowboys Release DeMarcus Ware

Ware spent his best days in an organization that didn't have a clue how to build to capitalize on his abilities. At least he made himself some money.

7 time Pro-Bowler on a team whose average defensive ranking averaged 26th in the league during his tenure ... what a freaking waste.
