Five reasons conversations at Nick’s about Archie Miller being fired are waaaay premature
February 10, 2020

I hear you out there, Indiana fans.  You’re tired of the losses.  You saw Bob Knight at Assembly Hall and all your synapses started firing.  Visions of championships, excellence, and toughness started dancing in your brain.

February 5, 2020

Michigan State football coach Mike Dantonio quit yesterday – less than one month after collecting a $4.3-million bonus for staying in East Lansing.
