    Drummond big night

    I mean, not to defend Melo too much, but he has olympic rings and led the Nuggets to the Western Conference Finals (only to lose to Kobe), and led a 50+ win Knicks team. Add in his college success and he's in a very different league than Drummond—and when he was 27 he was even more obviously a...

    Drummond big night

    Indeed if he retired or died today he wouldn't make it in. But we're projecting.

    Drummond big night

    He's 27. He's just entering his prime. Provided he avoids injury he's going to a bunch of years closer to 1-3 rather than 7-8.

    Trey Patterson announcement live in 2minutes

    Imagine thinking saying multiple people would commit to the UConn program—without naming who or giving any dates—at exactly the time of year that kids commit constitutes some sort of amazing prediction. It's like saying January 1st that there will be snow in 2021, but not giving days or...

    Can’t believe anyone ever doubted whether we hired the right guy

    Same here. Freshman in college. Utterly brutal. There have been games that the loss has stung me longer for a variety of reasons (George Mason, Maryland, Mississippi State, NC State), but the shock of this visceral response to this one was, in retrospect, pretty embarrassing. I'm still not...

    Further, just look at Miami's record going into that game...

    2022 Recruiting: Corey Floyd Jr To UConn

    It's nice to have someone correct, specific, and first on these things regularly rather than waiting to see where the wind blows. Good call a while back, Matrim. Glad to have Floyd in the wings.

    Hurley takes the hot sauce challenge

    I wonder if/when a prominent poster here who publicly promised will ante up.

    Who Will Be the 12th Big East Team?

    It would be colossally dumb to add a team. If they were, St. Louis is really the only one that makes sense. It gives a clear and easy East/West split, major market, etc. Won't happen because they'd be dumb, but that's the least stupid of all the stupid answers

    Bouk out indefinitely

    That Creighton loss continues to be a b****

    Lunardi has us as a 7th seed vs . . .

    I don't think you're reading it right. 7774 is saying the same thing I am: 5s beat 12s at a higher rate than 6s beat 11s. It's just that 5s losing to 12s feel more like upsets for a variety of reasons. So the person clamoring for a 6-7 seed is really just falling for the hype.

    The Playoff must expand to eight teams or the same four will always be playing

    10-16 out of well over a hundred certainly preserves the integrity of the sport. All conference champions plus 2-6 non-champion wildcards feels like the perfect compromise. Regular season matters, conference champions automatically get in, and ultimately there will be a diversity of teams in...

    Lunardi has us as a 7th seed vs . . .

    The 5s that lose are usually mediocre major conference teams paired up against high performing mid-majors or talented underperforming majors. Also, historically, 5s beat 12s at a higher rate than 6s beat 11s and 7s beat 10s. They also have a solid chance of getting a 13 rather than a 4. And...

    The Playoff must expand to eight teams or the same four will always be playing

    Honestly, college football doesn't play enough non-conference games to really get a true sense of who the best teams are. In years with undefeated teams, you have a reasonable guess, but there's no reason CFB needs to be the only sport where every team coming into the season cannot reasonably...
