  1. NCAA Tournament South Region Discussion

    I would say this is the easiest path from the S16 to the F4 ever, and not just from UK's perspective.

    Predators trade Zach Strief S16 8th round pick Pirates trade: Russell Okung @RuskieTitan

    I think the universities are free to receive gifts, I mean what would you call the millions they receive in donations from boosters?
  4. Bucs sign Vinny Curry

    Yeah I personally defined stuff as any tackle on a run play that resulted in 0 or less yards.
  5. NCAA Tournament Midwest Region Discussion

    Really don’t like this matchup for you guys, I foresee a blowout like the UNC F4 from the other year, but I pray I’m wrong. Would love nothing more than an 11 seed to knock off Duke.
  6. NCAA Tournament Midwest Region Discussion

    This seems to happen every year with Cuse causing trouble in the tourney despite pretty lackluster talent. It’s like in the regular season teams know Cuse is on the schedule and prep adequately for the 2-3 zone and can handle it, but when March comes and you get 1-4 days of prep, teams suddenly have no answer and look like they’re trying to solve a rubix cube behind their back.
  7. NCAA Tournament West Region Discussion

    Legendary shot, got fouled too. Wow. Couldn’t hit a 3 all day but got it when it mattered.
  8. Nuggets are like tanker;s kryptonite. Lost to Dallas a few weeks ago, now about to lose to the Grizzlies. Huge blow to our playoff hopes. Gary Harris likely out for the rest of regular season too.
  9. Bucs sign Vinny Curry

    Psht, would have been cheaper if you just gave us a pick for him. Curry is a beast, fixing for a true breakout year. Not to say he wasn't already playing at a high level last year: 42 tackles, 3 sacks, 47 pressures, 14 stuffs (most in NFL) in 576 snaps
  10. 2018 NBA Draft Prospects

    He's a stud, go figure the lowest rated recruit in Kentucky's class would be their best player and possibly highest pick in the draft. Cal has done a great job crafting him into a pure point, and he's got a ceiling up there with anyone given his length, athleticism and bball IQ.

    Buffalo didn't have a chance when the jumpers started falling for UK, and stopped falling for them. When they brought it within 5 at the 10 minute mark it looked like this may go down to the wire but UK just put the foot on the gas on offense. Finally a Duke-esque path to the F4 opens for Kentucky, KSU or UMBC next, then maybe even Loyola or Nevada in the E8. If only they had this kind of path in the last 2 years, they'd have run through it. With this team, it will always come down to whether SGA has come to play or not. The second he is off or gets shut down, it will take a lot of things that haven't been going right to start going right for this team to win.
  12. Jets, Colts Swap 1st Round Picks

    Whether or not this is a good deal is completely dependent on factors out of their control: who goes #1 and #2. Worth it if they get their guy, awful trade if they don't. Giants have to be foaming at the mouth seeing what the Colts got to go from #3 to #6. If it's the Bills who go for #2, the Giants are probably looking at a future 1st, and multiple 2nds.
  13. NCAA Tournament South Region Discussion

    I would say overall he was very successful in the tourney, and never had the same sustained regular season success as Bennett has had, but he made the tourney 14 times, mostly as an at-large, and failed to make it out of the first weekend half the time. Considering what he was working with, it's a miracle he made that many tournaments, and most of the teams predictably fell well short. I think Bennett is a tremendous coach, and suggesting this style of coaching doesn't work was wrong of me, but it really can hide a lack of talent, and I don't think you can keep hiding that in the tournament.
  14. NCAA Tournament South Region Discussion

    UK, Buffalo, KSU or UMBC will be in the elite 8. All but one of those options would be bananas.
  15. NCAA Tournament South Region Discussion

    Bo Ryan's coaching style doesn't work in the tourney... or rather, it can allow teams to build great regular seasons while not being all that great. The last 5 years UVA has earned the following seeds: 1, 2, 1, 5, 1... They've only reached the elite 8 once, and it was in Brogdon's senior year. Look at the Wisconsin teams that made deep runs, and they had some great individual talents. Guys who could carry the offense.
  16. NCAA Tournament South Region Discussion

    UVA is getting WRECKED this 2nd half. I'm not sure I've ever seen anything like this, usually the 16 seed begins to slow down at this juncture but instead they just revved it up. 11 point deficit is huge for a team that would prefer to bring the pace to a halt.
  17. Nacho Simulation Football League (S15 - Week 6 POSTED!)

    Who here has won a title, and who were your 3 main coaches when you did? Looking for an OT and a WR, will trade picks.
  18. I think if you leave out CP3, you have to leave out Curry too, he's missed just as much. It should either be both of them, or DeRozan and Dipo. Definitely close. Durant made the 2nd team last year despite missing 20 games which is why I had to stop and think..... It probably will be DeRozan and Dipo rather than CP3 and Curry the more I think about it.
  19. Drummond I'd say. Don't think Gobert will be in the race with the games he has missed. Agreed it will be awesome for him to finally get some "official" recognition. He's got the 5th highest BPM, highest among centers, so would be a real shame if he didn't make any all-NBA squad. He has no doubt been a top 3 center IMO.
  20. My tentative all-NBA teams 1st team G- James Harden G- Russell Westbrook F- Lebron James F- Anthony Davis C- Karl Anthony-Towns 2nd team G- Damian Lillard G- Kyrie Irving F- Kevin Durant F- Giannis Antetokounmpo C- Joel Embiid 3rd team G- Steph Curry G- Chris Paul F- LaMarcus Aldridge F- Paul George C- Nikola Jokic The 1st team forward spots are a tight race betweeen 4 guys who each have damn near equally strong cases. The 2nd guard spot on the 1st team is also a very tight race, I see 3 or 4 guys with good arguments for it. Embiid would probably be 1st team if not for all the games he's missed. Games played is why CP3 and Curry don't belong above Irving or Lillard IMO. The final forward spot was tough, nobody jumped out.
  21. NCAA Tournament South Region Discussion

    If Buffalo played as well as they did tonight, they're going to beat UK tomorrow for sure. Hopefully they peaked though.
  22. Tampa signs DT Beau Allen 3 yrs 16.5M

    Happy for Beau. Big body, should help shore up any run defense issues that stem from the DL. Him + McCoy is a really nice inside pair.
  23. Dolphins expected to cut Mike Pouncey

    Was Gase a student at the Chip Kelly School of Locker Room Micromanagement?
  24. That's true about the cap, I forgot that its' slowed down growth has put half the league in a bind. I do think there are absolutely teams who would throw the max at such players still, but I agree it is not wise.
  25. I remember Griffin playing a great deal of "bull ball," his strength allowed him to absorb contact the same way Randle does. Regardless, I was more getting at the fact that they used physical tools rather than skill/finesse to get to the rim at will, while lacking in length and range. Also Randle is plenty athletic, I'd venture to say a very athletic big. One of his favorite moves is catching it 15-18 feet out and then simply taking his guy off the dribble to the basket. I'd say his explosiveness is essential to his game, otherwise his strength would be of no use since it's not like he likes to methodically back guys down. Nowadays getting the max seems awfully easy. Randle is going to be a young guy who progressed each season and is coming off an all-star caliber 2nd half. Since the all-star break he's averaging 21 points on 60% shooting, 10 boards, 4 assists and a +11 plus/minus. Obviously he falls off then that changes, but I'm approaching this as if he will continue this play.
