    Reaction to VCU game

    We failed to lose a game that we kinda wanted to lose for 40 minutes before deciding that we might as well just win to avoid a second overtime. That game was a dumpster fire.

    Your parents were, in fact, sports fans. Welcome.

    Big Ten is overrated

    Less overrated now, I’d say.

    Alex Karaban Debating on Reclassifying and Joining the Team in the Winter

    Good to get into the conditioning program early from a basketball-perspective. He’s not going to see a single minute of playing time.

    Colgate beats Syracuse

    He’s the creepiest MF’er there.

    Twelfth Team to the Big East

    Wishful thinking. A school that cannot compete on a consistent basis in the A10 is suddenly going to be competitive in the Big East. It’s idiocy.

    Twelfth Team to the Big East

    Understand what we’re talking about… Men’s sports…soccer is on a plane two or three times a year. Track is going to meets locally and maybe gets on a plane once depending on where the Big East championship is. Golf is always on a plane because it’s cold in Connecticut in the winter - has...

    Twelfth Team to the Big East

    I’ve been very clear - there are no viable options. Suggesting UMass because they’re relatively close on the map is the work of a simpleton.

    Twelfth Team to the Big East

    I came here to tell you that it’s incredibly stupid to invite Gonzaga given how reliant they are on Mark Few for their success. But then someone suggested UMass and I lost my train of thought. The Boneyard is like 25 years old and that was one of the top 25 dumbest things I have ever read...

    There’s another Millionaires in Pennsylvania - a friend of ours was the AD there for a while. (Williamsburg, maybe?) My favorite is one from West Virginia. The Poca High School Poca Dots.

    Need a favor

    My kid swims and is very good - generally, she’s a sprinter with the exception of the backstroke where she somehow is very effective at the 200 back. She’s on the smallish side so she loses a bit off the blocks and she’s taking more strokes to go the same distance, so she has to make up for it...

    Need a favor

    It never made any sense, but you inspired me to look up the answer. It makes less sense now. So they started off as the Maroons which actually did make sense given that the school colors were maroon and gold. Eventually, the name changed to the “Uptowners”….which make absolutely no sense given...

    DePaul defeats Coppin State by 25

    Schools like Coppin State and Texas Southern really do fund the athletic department in a very short period of time in Novembers and Decembers.

    Need a favor

    In my nearly 60 years of providing this board with hand-crafted artisanal postings, I have yet to ask for a favor. Until now - a friend of our family is up for athlete of the month at a local high school. My daughter has been on teams with this kid and she’s just a great, great kid. Swimming...

    The Delaware view of the world ...

    You’ve been very clear about your desire to hitch out wagon to anything with a pulse. There‘s absolutely no reason or benefit for us to play Buffalo over MTSU or anyone else other than the fact hat you live in the same state.

    4K TV recommendation

    We have the TCL 55” whatever that people keep mentioning. It’s fine. TVs are one of those things that people drive themselves into the weeds over - kinda like lobster rolls and pizza. Don’t overthink it.

    The Delaware view of the world ...

    There’s zero reason for UConn to ever want any kind of association with Delaware or JMU or New Hampshire or whatever bumpkin school we’re trying to over-promote these days. We just got out of a bad conference, stop trying to create new bad conferences.

    If you could pick one past UConn player…who would you add to this team?

    You get partial credit for creativity.

    If you could pick one past UConn player…who would you add to this team?

    My god, this was the easiest question to answer…how did people miss it? You add Ray Allen otherwise you got the answer wrong.

    Road bicycling

    Partially. That’s a size L Defy which has 175mm crank arms. The clearance to the ground with a set of Look pedals is about 2.5”. A wider pedal would be a plainly bad idea. Also, the dude is not a beginner…his handle is MTBingNinja. It’d take him about three seconds to figure how to get into a...

    Road bicycling

    Don’t change the pedals to flats and definitely do not swap the bars for flat bars. Riding on the hoods is far more comfortable with that bike’s geometry than you would get with bar ends. I actually have a Giant Defy, but it’s one of the Advanceds. It’s kind of a rain bike now, but originally...

    OT: Oklahoma State Postseason Ban 2022

    F Oklahoma State. Don’t commit to schools where the FBI has taken an interest. They should have been honest with their players and told them the appeal was unlikely to succeed so that the kids could have transferred…but they didn’t do that, did they? So F them.

    Best Pizza in Florida

    Pizza is the easiest thing on earth to cook after a lobster roll. I am quite sure you can find a great pizza in all 50 states and nearly every country.

    Best Pizza in Florida

    Time has a certain mercy to it. After a time away, you forget what good pizza is and you’re happy with whatever you find.

    OT: PSA: Fraud Alert

    You would think that would be a prerequisite, but nope. The real horror there is that the state hands them your DL # when they open the policy. They do not have to enter a DL or put down a dime - the policy will cancel for non-payment in 30 days. That’s the loophole they exploited.

    OT: PSA: Fraud Alert

    There’s a scam, mostly in New York state, where someone takes out a car insurance policy on line in your name. Apparently, the act of taking out the policy results in the insurance company providing the scammer with your driver’s license number which they then use to file for unemployment...

    Bouk nailed to the bench in opener

    Charlotte is an awful franchise and Jordan is borderline incompetent as an owner. No idea why Bouk didn’t play, but anyone who thinks that franchise is a good place for a young player isn’t paying attention.

    Bob Huggins says the major conferences should start their own b-ball tournament

    Scotch thread

    Things like that are just more interesting to me these days. Do something different. A local distillery has a cooper on staff making their own barrels. After aging, the bourbon does into a black walnut syrup barrel….sounds kinda weird, but outside, sitting next to a fire, it works.
