I'm intrigued by this concept of games not involving Uconn and wish to know more. Does this phenomenon have a website?
Yes - I can't remember the exact URL at the moment, but I believe it's the sister site to one that Lobo put together for young children: ...www. boysplaybasketballtoo.com
Baylor vs ND. Expect Baylor to win, but want to see what this ND team looks like against tough competition.
Duke vs Maryland. Should be class of the ACC
Stanford vs California Class of the Pac 12.
Penn State vs Texas A&M. Just to see how good some of the competition is.
-Enjoy your posts TDF! The silent video clips are worth 1000 words – a favorite part of the ‘Yard now
- FWIW, I’m at least one UConn fan who honestly has no interest in watching other teams, except I definitely tune in to ESPN’s website full-replays when an upcoming UConn rival is upset, to see how it was done. My interest feels directly proportionate to the degree an opponent is a threat to UConn in the regular season or tournaments.
-So I’d watch any replay if Baylor were somehow upset prior to coming to Hartford (which I doubt will happen; hope UConn gets a shot at being the first). I’m similarly interested in ND or Stanford, who I enjoy thinking as UConn’s real rivals now, because they have had the most recent success against UConn, albeit intermittent. Conversely, I finally lost interest watching UTenn losses in their entirety last year, as their defeats piled up and they faded as any apparent threat to UConn in the NCAA’s (I don’t see that changing soon). My interest will grow should BE rivals like Rutgers ever rise again as serious FF contenders, just as ND did. If your Duke could somehow upset UConn in the coming years (I am admittedly far too bias to imagine how)– you can be certain my interest in Duke would skyrocket.
Stanford @ Tenn Will Stanford ever win another game at TBA in Knoxville?
Oooo.... I forgot about that one
Baylor - Notre Dame
Stanford - Baylor
Are games I'm interested in.
Baylor by 25+ in both. Stanford without Nneka will find it hard to score and ND lost too much to stay within 30.
I'm looking forward to Duke vs MD and TENN vs TAMU.
Any game where TN loses.
I will probably watch TN more than i did last season, just out of morbid curiosity...
If only there was a word to accurately describe the pleasure I derive at the misfortunes of others...
(to be clear, not at Pat's illness. Just the decline of the program in general.)
I believe the word you are searching for is "schadenfreude".
Yea, that'll work.
In this case, I believe a more appropriate word would be Rockytopple.
I knew it, I was being sarcastic I am 100% German. My other favorite word like that is Fremdschämen, which is feeling shame at someone else's actions.
That's a great word that really should make it into our national lexicon. We don't have a word for it in English, and it's something one often experiences. Sadly, I'm often embarrassed for others who should be embarrassed or ashamed of themselves and clearly aren't.
Baylor vs Kentucky
UNC-CHeat vs Tennessee (wish there was a way both teams could lose)
ND vs Tenn
Stanford vs Cal
Separate names with a comma.
