    The Expanse

    Finished Season 5. Underwhelmed. Kinda bloated, too much talking, too little happening. Pretty pissed about what they did w/ Alex. I guess the creators felt their hand was forced due to circumstances w/ the actor. That's certainly going to force the show to diverge from the books a lot. I...

    proof that Rotten Tomatoes is a sham

    There have frequently been fairly big discrepancies between critic and user reviews/scores. This one is impossible to ignore though. TBS was aggressively shoving previews for their new series "Chad" in our faces all during the NCAA Tourney. It looked AWFUL! There was no way I was ever going...

    Dorka Juhasz transferring to UConn

    I think she's already a beast. She only played 18.5 min/game. Partially because of foul trouble in some games, but also largely because of their depth. You stretch her PT out to 30+ min/game and her already good stats get significantly better. She already set the single season blocked shot...

    April Transfer thread

    It's just surprising to me. I don't think anybody else has been this active in the transfer portal so far. Anyway their need is really in the front court, not the back court. If Miller doesn't return, that leaves them w/ Bessoir +Anstey and Masikewich if they can get here. Some decent size...

    What the heck is going on at UCLA? They had a LONG dry spell w/ no commits, now they seem to be getting another new player every day. All guards and wings though. Osborne should have a lot more help next year than she did this season.

    COBRA Kai

    I followed that you meant the character, not the actual actress. Just interesting that such an unlikable character is played by a seemingly charming and nice young woman. But as pointed out above, that's why they call it acting. And of course not all Disney (or Nickoledeon) kids end up being...

    COBRA Kai

    Yeah, I know. I didn't use an emoticon but I was being fairly tongue in cheek w/ my previous comment. Although there are a number of "actors" who really don't do much acting, they're just portraying themself on screen. Seth Rogen might be the worst offender, but there are others.

    April non-UConn recruiting thread

    Corsaro is a little surprising. I think it was 2 years after she graduated HS before she made her debut w/ UCLA, but she's only a Jr. eligibility wise, so she could've played 2 more years there?

    I think more than one poster called that. Got rid of several Euros to make room for her.

    COBRA Kai

    I just saw an episode of Ridiculousness w/ Peyton List (Tory) as the guest. She seems fairly down to earth, and not even slightly psychotic IRL.

    April Transfer thread

    It's a new NCAA mandate, every team has to have at least one player enter the transfer portal. Okay, not really, but some teams are turning over half of their roster or more. One player leaving is not really something to set off any kind of detector.

    Creme's Way too Early Top 25

    They'll miss her shooting. I think Van Gytenbeek could actually be better in terms of being a traditional PG. They'll also really miss the defense of the Williams/Wilson combo (assuming Anna doesn't return for another year).

    Creme's Way too Early Top 25

    Jones will probably have the ball in her hands a lot and will initiate the offense sometimes, but she will never be the PG per se at Stanford. She played the 4 almost exclusively this year, occasionally 3 when they had a big lineup on the floor. She's not going to be put in a position of...

    April non-UConn recruiting thread

    Not all 6-1 players are created equal. I'd say Horvat (when she's healthy, which seems rare) plays a lot bigger than Corsaro for example. But they are losing Onyenwere of course, and I haven't heard anything about Miller coming back. That's pretty much been their front court for 2-3 years...

    UCLA is gonna win the under 6 foot Championship hands down! :rolleyes: Nice that they are getting some recruits again finally, but Close might want to add a little size?

    Oklahoma hires Drake HC Jennie Baranczyk

    For the 3 years 2016-19, Drake went 53-1 in a tough MVC! That is impressive. Averaged 27 wins per game during that stretch. Down trending the last 2 years, but that might've just been a hiccup.

    The Expanse

    Up thru Ep. 7. Weakest episode of the season. It was mostly Marco talking, getting intoxicated on his self admiration. I had to start fast forwarding to get thru some of the scenes. Pretty much everything w/ him, Philip, any of their crew and Naomi is the weak link to the season. Well I did...

    April Transfer thread

    Both barely played. Barnes has brought in quite a few international recruits in recent years, but Pueyo is the only one to make much impact. I guess Alonso too, back to her first year at UA.

    The Expanse

    The book this season is based on dictated that, unless they wanted to do a total departure from the source material. For the same reason the book was a bit tough to slog thru.

    There were fairly persistent rumors that the AD was locked into hiring a woman for the the position.

    If it's that simple, she should promise to win the Championship every year. I guess she didn't promise that to this year's team.

    The Expanse

    4 episodes in now. Pretty good. I know, artistic license and all, but what happened to Fred Johnson in the TV series is very different than the book. Not really sure why they made that choice. I absolutely hated Marco the book character, as well as Philip. TV versions are living up to that...

    OT: Watching the men’s championship?

    Is that confirmed? I don't see a legit source. Did SiriusXM fact check it or just go ahead and throw it out there? I see some random bloggers repeating it, but no real news organizations. Sounds like a dumb rumor that got started. Vital might believe it's true, but that doesn't make it...

    April Transfer thread

    Natalie Romeo left Nebraska immediately after the coaching change and was ruled eligible to play the next season for Washington. Chandler Smith left at the same time, but had to sit out a year after transferring to Gonzaga. Romeo and Shepard obviously came up w/ better stories to sell to the...

    Which top seniors will return for the 21-22 season?

    So...LSU will be barely just good enough to keep the coach from getting fired again?

    Yes, I mentioned both Baylor and UConn.

    Creme's Way too Early Top 25

    Haven't you heard? Anybody other than Arizona would've beaten Stanford in the Championship game. I see some claiming it for Baylor, some for UConn. South Carolina was an eyelash away from beating Stanford, so you might as well get in on the "We're the real Champions" sweepstakes. I mean...

    Recently Watched Movies 2021

    Took a flyer on "Lady Bloodfight" last night. Apparently very loosely a sequel to "Bloodsport." Still the Kumite, for some reason all female fighters now. Entertaining enough for B grade. Lead is mostly known for her stunt work in films, but has gotten a few roles as an actual cast member...

    Oregon knocked Georgia out of the Tourney. They didn't play Indiana.

    Barnes has done well with transfers the entire time she's been at Arizona.

    Baylor

    It was certainly a whooping. Historical? Because they prevented GU from having a perfect season? It certainly wasn't the largest margin in a Championship Game. 1990 UNLV vs. Duke says hello (sorry @triaddukefan ). While it was only a 17 point final margin, I remember 2009 North Carolina vs...

    Coaching Hot Seat 2021

    Chances of getting Hammon--slim to none. She's passed up better jobs. I think she's still holding out for an NBA HC gig. If my last name was Insell, I would change it. That's rough. Incel is one of the worst insults you can hurl at someone in our current times.

    I think someone has a high opinion of their game

    Many of them are no more likely to find a roster spot in the WNBA if they return for a 5th/6th year of college and then tried to get drafted in '22. Not really sure what the point of the thread header is? It's not like men's hoops where these are all Fr. or Soph going early.
