This from a guy who was a member of a team that had the only perfect season in NFL history. The thrill of victory fades quickly, but not the agony of defeat.
    A lot of it has to do when it happened...a big win after a big lost probably nullifies those sad feelings....John Terry of Chelsea missed a penalty against Man U in the Champions League Final that would have won the game....but a few years later won the Final and he seemed and said he was pretty content afterwards...

    Also if the Cubs had won in 1970...which was certainly possible....1969 would have been completely forgotten...

    This makes sense. John Elway said that the two Super Bowls he won at the end of his career got him over his Super Bowl failures earlier in his career.

    I guess this is one way to get a home-field advantage.

    This used to be an old trick of Red Auerbach in the Boston Garden. Locker room was cold (remember Massachusetts in the winter) and no hot water in the showers

    That's what is great about college football.....real sportsmanship by opposing fans.

    Numerous LSU defensive players dealt with cramps and other injuries during the Tigers' win Saturday. By the end of the game, Longhorns fans could be heard booing injuries, believing the players were faking in an attempt to slow down Texas' play.

    This....the injury faking and the booing from fans when suspected....has been going on since tempo offenses first appeared at least 20 years ago.

    The LSU defensive players delaying the game due to "injury" was a farce and an embarrassment to the SEC. It was over the top and excessive. The LSU head coach should be investigated. Television advertisers should get a refund!

    As for the A/C in the locker room, If there is one way to give the visiting team an advantage, DONT give them A/C. If you want to make them soft for the beating give them every luxury and pampering distraction you can!!

    Nevertheless LSU won the game fair and square. The Texas QB gave up at least 10 points due to bad throws. They suck!! Stick a foaarrrkk in 'em.. they're dunnn!!!

    I'm sure the authorities are on this.

    Meanwhile....

    California bill nearing passage could be domino that brings down NCAA's amateurism philosophy....

    Going forward, if/when the bill becomes law, schools would not directly pay their players. From a financial standpoint, it keeps the NCAA and universities' finances exactly as they stand now. Most importantly, the bill would give legal protection to all California-based student-athletes. Schools, and the NCAA, could not pull scholarships or suspend players for agreeing to endorsement deals or taking money from outside interests based on their talent and marketability.

    Jersey sales, autographs, sponsorships from local business, shoe deals, whatever. If their name, image or likeness is viewed as a profit-making asset by any entity, college athletes in the state of California will have the right to be paid off their talent and marketability.

    It's not just college football and college basketball players who stand to be paid what the market deems they're worth. This could be as simple as UCLA gymnast Katelyn Ohashi monetizing a YouTube account. You might recall Ohashi's affable floor routine, which went viral and made national-news headlines earlier this year, has almost 60 million views on UCLA Athletics' official channel.
