Fall/Winter Banter - Football, Basketball, Snowball?

24 was the record by any SEC team. 

Are you talking about SEC teams only or all of NCAA? Getting beat by a non conference team shouldn’t effect a SEC conference win streak. I wouldn’t think.

It was overall consecutive wins by any SEC team vs all competition. Texas A&M has it at 24 in a row.

Weenie Warning!

Can we do this again in January? That'd be money for anyone I-65 east. Mid-South usually scores off a different pattern.

Oh wait, in winter the last slug of moisture in Alabama would fall apart on the way in here. Actually it usually does not, but I'm being cynical here. Bama delivers. From the northwest snow dies in downslope off the Plateau into KCHA.

I adore football. I constantly follow it; I read all the news sources regarding football. By the way, I recently found even a Thai website https://zumroad.com/sport, which has interesting sports articles about football and teams from English and German leagues. And thank you again for sharing this information. It is very important for betting fans and, in particular, football fans. Good luck to you, my man, and see you!

We probably need a new second half of 2022 Banter thread. Big college sports news rolling in, with conference shake-ups likely.

Big 12 absorbing some Pac 12 is a sharp shift from previous speculation of the reverse. We take!

SEC snagging some ACC would be big news. Makes some sense with I'm guessing more FB money in the SEC. Also talk of UNC going Big 10 which is a head scratcher. Duke UNC?

Well, money would explain all of the above. Just have to unravel that path.

The two short-waves passing through today and Wednesday..
Can we instead save them for winter? The stalled front to our south included. :weenie:

Haven’t been keeping up with the weather much lately but I did see MRX talking about a upper low in August. How rare is that?

Actually feels cool nights and mornings now. My blood thinned out like living in Houston, after weeks of 95 high 75 low. 

Looks like Sept may be reasonable there. However I laughed when I saw this on Oklahoma football Twitter: Fans being treated for heat exhaustion while OU plays cupcakes in September is a rite of passage.

Been the same around here recent years for the SEC. Here's to actual football weather instead for football season.

 If anyone is interested in joining a NFL pick em league ($30 fee for the whole season) please check out the thread for more information. This used to be just open to American Weather, however, given lack of signups this has been expanded outside of the form to hopefully draw a bigger participation. If you are interested or even have any friends interested please pass the word along!

We had a normal amount of fireflies it seemed like to me.  They do like wet weather though and struggle more in drought years, so if you were dry in late spring and early summer it might hamper your area a bit. Otherwise, I can't explain it.

It's been a minute so I'm catching up. Yes @jaxjagman we had BN fireflies in Chattanooga. I was disappointed because I wanted to show the Baby. Older kid is just like whatever Dad. Can we get the telescope out? So there's hope!

How about them Vols!? Road win at Pitt was gutsy. Probably would have won big at home. Kansas also with the road win at West Virginia! Hopefully many of their annoying basketball fans saw that, lol.

The other upsets mentioned above @John1122 were good entertainment. Wisconsin might get honorable mention for the choke trophy. Marshall really appreciated the win at ND as they soaked in the moment with graciousness. Cool!

Starting to think the lack of fireflies around here is more related to the development in Williamson Co.But we still have woods,but we also had a bigger deer population around here,even those are getting scarce but that has to do with development i am sure
