  1. That ellipsis had me worried that the sponsor was going to be something controversial

  2. That's what Cris is doing currently. He buzzes in immediately on almost every clue and quite visibly figures them out once he does.

  3. Which works really well if you have the knowledge base, and he very clearly does. I'm really loving watching him play. He's not quite James-level aggressive, but he is aggressive, and I love it.

  4. If you aren't at that level, being that aggressive can mean you either lose control of the board or lose money when you have control.

  5. You look amazing as always πŸ–€πŸ’“πŸ’šπŸ’“πŸ–€πŸ’“πŸ’šπŸ’“

  6. 2019 New Hampshire Bowman wrecks his main and backup so they go to Jimmie's backup which has a painted black base. They just pulled the 48 and Ally decals off and slapped on the Axalta ones. Bowman's primary had a dark blue base while Jimmie's is black. It's part of the partnership between HMS and Axalta that all the HMS cars have a base layer of paint.

  7. Do they still have the paint if all the cars now must be wrapped?

  8. 2016 was the first time Michael McDowell ran a full season in any of NASCAR’s top three series. Crazy stuff.

  9. 2017, actually. In 2016, he missed Texas 1, Pocono 1, Michigan 1, Kentucky, and Dover 2.

  10. Despite my fandom, I'm objective here. The Panthers, despite finally getting an FBS win, have been pretty bad. I mean, they should've lost to Bryant, who themselves are 1-4 on the season. {UConn} has played better teams and played them tougher. The Huskies are probably going to win here.

  13. I took the mention of the not being needed in the future as relating to a technological advance. I was way off.

  14. That's how I saw it too. I ended up going with Zagat

  16. So the sponsorship is coming from Swann, right? Best Buy is not providing any sponsorship?

  17. I went to a high school with the same colors mascot and logo as your university.

  18. I think it's way more often that high schools just take the logos and recolor them rather than ask permission.

  19. UMass, because if UMass wins a natty something has gone seriously wrong.

  21. Fuck yea Greenville Swamp Rabbits, good to see some cheese toast action in nascar.

  22. Well Spire does co-own that team, so it's not surprising. And Bon Secours is a Catholic hospital group out of Maryland.

  23. What if they could steal the DD, but not for the amount wagered, but for the amount that was on the board for that clue originally? Then it would still give the player who initially got the DD, the opportunity to make a larger or more strategic wager, but we'd still have the added benefit of competition for ringing in with the right answer if the DD contestant got it wrong. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

  24. That'd be the only way I'd be somewhat OK with that. But even so, that's just change for change's sake. And even then, I think you'd still see smaller wagers because of the potential for a large swing. Say it falls on a $2000 question, that change in score can become much more massive if the leader gets it wrong and the second place gets it right.

  25. I disagree with making changes simply for the sake of making changes.

  26. Very true. There's a reason why the show is consistently in the top three, if not higher, in the ratings of syndicated shows.

  27. Racing is better than the 90s overall. I remember races that ended with only a couple cars on the lead lap and even fewer in competition spots. The racing seems much closer. And, having had to sit through a cautionless Coke 600 in the late 90s, stage racing has also been appreciated. The playoff system can go away though.

  28. I think it's better than it has been in a decade, but not better than it was in the 90s. When I go back and watch those old races the biggest difference I see between then and today is the finishes back then were less likely to be outstanding, but the flow of the race with comers and goers and on-track lead changes was much better. I think two things drove that which will be hard to fix. First, they didn't know how to set up the cars correctly. Back then everyone was still driving off the right front as opposed to the right rear. It made even the good handling cars handle more poorly than what we see today. Second, having more smaller teams created feelings of more competition. Having ten drivers win from eight different teams feels freshers than having twelve drivers win from four different teams.

  29. Jimmy G played at a far more obscure program than Zappe. Jimmy played in FCS and Zappe played at one of the better G5 schools in the FBS.

  30. Though to be fair, Zappe spent most of his college career at Houston Baptist Christian, an FCS school that has largely been terrible and went 1-10, 5-7, and 1-3 in his years there. HCU's football stadium is literally abutted by a CVS.

  31. Makes no difference to me. Also - how does one actually search for daily double? It’s random, there’s no skill

  32. It's more likely to be on higher-value clues, so the bottom two rows more often than not. They almost never appear on the first row. So by sticking to those rows first, especially if you're a strong player, you're more likely to get the DD and build a big lead early. That's a big part of what made Holzhauer so good, is that he'd have really large leads early and demoralize his opponents.

  33. Simply stunning πŸ–€πŸ’“πŸ’šπŸ’“

  35. I'd been wondering what happened to this dude. Hope he wins the thing. He's certainly capable of it.

  36. I mean, by asking him to sign autographs in the FanZone, it's not really free parking. He's asking Kes to pay, but in time.
