    Christmas Eve, Eve, Eve ThoughtZ™

    Was watching Depaul the other day and Leitao's offense had great movement. One of the voices in the back of my head said "where's the guy setting the useless screen 22 feet from the basket?"

    UNH VS. UConn game replay?

    They’re bottom third, but certainly not one of the worst. Before today their worst loss was 14 points.

    Challenge Evedything

    We can't seriously imagine that the time of day we were practicing had any role in the results of our games. It's not like were were losing because of a handful of mental errors, or because we were fatigued. Our losses had nothing to do with body clock. We were losing because we weren't...

    2019 24 Team FBS Playoff Sim

    Over the past two years I've run a sim of a 24 team FBS playoff similar to the structure the FCS tournament. In 2017, the sim had Georgia winning the national championship 27-13 over Alabama. In 2018, it had LSU winning the national championship 14-10 over Alabama (Clemson, the actual national...

    Too Many Deficiencies- NIT

    Too Many Deficiencies- NIT
