Most Unbreakable Sports Record
Dimaggio's Hitting Streak
Gretzky or Orr?
Gordie Howe is the best hockey player of all time.
Federer or Sampras?
Pete Sampras. First of all, I think Sampras played during a time when their were better players or competition, as their was Agassi, Michael Chang, Jim Courier, and Todd Martin from the US alone. That being said, Federer has surpassed Sampras in grand slams won and even more importantly Federer was able to complete the grand slam, something Sampras could never accomplish. Pete's inability to even come close to ever winning the French Open, was by far his biggest weakest on his career's resume. Nonetheless my vote is still with Sampras, as he sucess was endured in a more competitive era.
Petty or Earnhardt?
I wish Sports Illustrated, The Sporting News, and ESPN would stop wasting so much time covering NASCAR/Indy Racing. I would rather see more time devoted to tennis or minor league baseball instead, or at least long distance running.
ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac-12 or SEC?
The Big 10 is the best conference for college sports today. This argument will largely forcus on the two main draws of collegiate athletics - football and men's basketball. The Big East is an inconsistent conference when it comes to their football and basketball play. as the number of teams in the conference double from 8 in football to 16 for basketball.The conferences football program is definetely far from elite, though above average. The Big East's basketball conference ia extremely overated, as first of all I think the conference has to many teams in 16, with 12 team conferences being the maximum size allowed, at least ideally. With so many teams in one conference, I think it is extremely unfair to teams to not have to play several games against conference foes. Also, the Big Ten has been rather stable in terms of its membership, when compared with other conferences like the ACC and the Big East. Besides, the exit of the University of Chicago and the addition of Penn State, I believe there have been no other changes to the amount of schools in the conferences long history.
