He should let us know how he really feels. 

Pretty crazy that they could fuck this up so badly, but then again, it is the NCAA.

So basically this is really gonna help just teams in weak ass conferences!? Long live the NET! 

Uconn beat a high school team yesterday and moved from 63 to 47. 

ETSU beat Georgia Southern and moved from 102 to 48. 

Michigan St. lost at Louisville in OT and dropped from 7 to 24.

And encourage strong teams to schedule shitty teams they can run the score up on during their non-con.

 

Definitely been enjoying the B1G-ACC challenge the past two nights.  Most of the matchup have been pretty even.

This 30 for 30 on Bob Knight has served to remind me of the myriad of reasons why this man is such a singular piece of shit, and a stain on not just college athletics but sports in general. When the world is finally shed of him it will be a better place for his absence.

Updating an old post, Akok Akok has officially commited to Uconn. Cockburn up next hopefully!

Hurley is the anti-Ollie, and if they can get either Precious and/or Kofi then this would be one of their best classes in years.

I wish he was playing for Oregon this year with Bol Bol.  I would watch all their games.

The dream continues, as Buffalo goes to #17 in the AP poll. It was an impressive pair of wins they had on back-to-back nights over in Belfast. San Fran was close, but they had been unbeaten too until this game; they might be a really solid team as well.

If they're still unbeaten in a few weeks when they go into Syracuse, that's going to be one hell of a game for western New York. Buffalo's half-heartedly tried to get a rivalry going with a Syracuse a few times over the years, usually in football, but they've never been anywhere close to good enough for it to actually happen. If Buffalo wins this time though, especially if Syracuse is ranked by then, it could really be the start of something fun for the region.

If you call yourself a college basketball fan, learn the name Ja Morant.

Racers lost by six at Bama last night.  He had 38 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists. If he had anyone that could finish a play at a high D1 level, he would have easily had a half dozen more assists.

that was absolutely disgusting.

with a name like that, how does he not play for Duke?

Speaking of...game of the year tonight.  Duke v. my UHartford Hawks.  Some have picked UHA to win the America East...and I think they are plucky and fun and lose this game by 60.

Buffalo beat St Bonaventure on the road for the first time in over a hundred years yesterday. I've never really bought into the "Big 4" of Buffalo (Buffalo, St Bonaventure, Niagara, and Canisius) as a real thing. Niagara and Canisius have a real rivalry, there's a trophy and everything for whoever wins the most games (they play each other in all Division I sports every year), which St. Bonaventure is sort of adjacent too but not really, and Buffalo has nothing to do with. But even so, St. Bonaventure has been the best basketball team in the area most years, and getting a win over them was always exciting. And now Buffalo's even done it on the road.

Next up is a home game against Southern Illinois, who Buffalo already beat on the road this year by 9, and then the big remaining test of the season; road games against Syracuse and Marquette.

Watched the first half of Tennessee-Gonzaga, before going out and doing 3+ hours of yard work, just finished watching the second half... wow!  That was quite a game.  Schofield was so good; he was crazy annoying in our game against them too, but that second half capped off with a deep 3 to win it today was another level.

I wonder who jumps us to become the new #1 tomorrow.

UVA had so much help today. They're a good team but probably overrated. When you need refs to give you 5 point plays at the end of the game and phantom fouls at the 3 point line to beat VCU, you're not that good. 29 FT attempts to 9 is about all one needs to know about how poor that game was.

The entire UK fanbase is pretty much in a malaise... I'm no exception.

So instead, feast your eyes upon more Ja Morant highlights!  :lol:

Wife won two fourth row tickets for today's game against Utah.  I'm trying to decide if I just stand the whole game to see what kind of reaction I get... or just buy a blue sweater and prepare my scowl?

Morant is incredible!  Have fun with those tickets.  I almost went to Notre Dame @ UCLA last weekend which ended with a Kris Wilkes game winner (albeit after UCLA blew an 11 point halftime lead at home) but now will probably make it to a league game coming up in the new year.

Gonzaga @ UNC tonight.  No one can really knock Gonzaga for it's non-conference scheduling.  Tough loss to the best Tennessee team in ages and now this difficult environment.

Well, which was it?  

Personally I like to piss off the grey-hairs whenever I am blessed enough to sit, er... stand, in the lower arena (it's been some time).

Hell of a week for Buffalo, starting to tonight. Road game at Syracuse on ESPN2, with Syracuse favored by 3.5 points for some reason. Hopefully the team gets motivated by the insult (no power conference team ranked #14 would be a road underdog to Syracuse) and plays out of their minds. The road game against Marquette later this week is an even bigger opportunity for Buffalo to prove itself (and probably secure an at-large bid regardless of how the MAC tournament goes, so long as they don't fall apart the rest of the season), but Syracuse has bullied Buffalo for so long and tonight is the chance for that sweet comeuppance.

I stood from the national anthem until UK scored.  No one actually told me to sit, but the natives were definitely getting restless...

It's never easy to win in that place. You know they're going to get all the calls. 

Congrats.  :)
