    Road Show Quotes from Hurley

    He's shown that he's wildly overmatched at this level. He played 83 minutes last year and scored eight buckets. Three of them came against USF in the second to last game of the year. The other five were scattered throughout the first 4 1/2 months of the season. Hurley has to talk him up...

    OT: Ed Cooley interviewing for Michigan job

    What are you talking about? UConn spends far more on basketball than Providence does - the fact that they wildly overpay for a middle of the road coach has nothing to do with what UConn should or should not be doing.

    Does Coach K suck?

    You have to be a straight-up lunatic to even pose the question. You, of course, are a straight-up lunatic.

    Yes, but you're kind of a nitwit who seems happier when you're miserable.

    Game of Thrones Season 8

    I thought it was pretty good. I thought the season suffered from too much compression - feels like some of the story needed more air and didn’t get it because they were trying to land this in six episodes. The whole lineage thing kinda got lost in the shuffle. Tonight’s episode verged on great...

    Univ Houston Has Eyes on Joining AAU, Raises $1 Billion

    It's about being invited into a group that is not remotely inclined to invite anyone else.

    OT: ADubs Arby tip. Spring 19 edition

    I would punch them dead in the face if they tried. I don't think it's much of a secret. We're getting two year old news here. Arby’s really does have the meats — all of them. Starting this month, protein fans can bulk up the fast-food chain’s $10 secret menu sandwich, called the Meat Mountain...

    The Grind

    Grinds cannot be intense. By definition, a grind is dull, hard work - a chore, a slog. The presence of intensity changes things. So we don't know where we're at, do we?

    Colonial Athletic Association becomes the first league to go OTT with its primary rights package.

    I think ESPN heard she was pretty funny and had some Twitter followers so they decided that they desperately needed her to grab some demographic they don't understand and now have no idea what to do with her. Kind of like Bill Simmons, but without the part in the middle where it actually seemed...

    OT: Things Other Parents Let Their Kids Get Away With.....

    As a child who grew up before screens, I can tell you that my brothers and I had thousands of versions of baseball, football and basketball modified for playing in the house. All of them pissed off my mother.

    Colonial Athletic Association becomes the first league to go OTT with its primary rights package.

    I don't know what wrestling has to do with the CAA. I don't think this is a bad deal for either party, I just disputed the numbers. As I've said, I don't think FloSports has any real skin in the game, certainly not $750,000 a year. And the CAA gets to put its games someplace that its fans can...

    Colonial Athletic Association becomes the first league to go OTT with its primary rights package.

    If you think they’re paying cash for the Big 12 swimming and diving championships, (which is what they’re broadcasting), I don’t know what to tell you. Also, their Big 10 “deal” just allows them to sell you a subscription to BTN Plus for a few more dollars than the Big Ten would sell it to you...

    Colonial Athletic Association becomes the first league to go OTT with its primary rights package.

    They’re not paying $750,000 per year in cash to the Colonial.

    Colonial Athletic Association becomes the first league to go OTT with its primary rights package.

    If you're a CAA sports fan and you have to watch your school, it's not a bad deal. That's the price of a turkey sandwich in Westchester and at least you know that your $12.50 isn't going into the pockets of the most malevolent sports media company on the planet.

    Colonial Athletic Association becomes the first league to go OTT with its primary rights package.

    There are ten CAA teams...the idea that FloSports is paying $750,000+ a year for rights that no one anywhere wants does not pass muster. My guess is that this like a Nike deal with a school. The deal is for $20M over 10 years, but $50,000 is cash and the rest is equipment where they're valuing...

    Game of Thrones Season 8

    She was unaware of the arrows last week. This week, she came down with the sun behind her to burn up the boats and then she came in too low for the arrows when she went for the walls. Apologize to the writers, grandpa.

    2019 Recruiting: Precious Achiuwa update 4/23

    Hardaway will work harder than Ollie did and probably doesn't have some of the personal baggage that our guy started to carry around. Can he coach or manage a program? I dunno - we'll find out - but given that he's basically an AAU god, you knew he would be able to get players.

    American Gods (Starz)

    Some of the episodes were very good. Some were not. None of them really advanced the plot much. I still enjoyed it on the whole, but we didn't end season two very far away from where we started it.

    Turns out the obviously worthless website were worthless

    It's almost like assembling a virtual business centered around hipsters gazing at their navels in print is not a good business model. And yet so many keep trying.

    It wouldn’t create any additional interest or make the games any better or more important.

    OT: Adam Zagoria

    I actually feel bad for him - I don't think he envisioned himself writing 12 articles a week about Zion Williamson for the Forbes contributor network. It ain't an easy world for people who write for a living.

    OT: Adam Zagoria

    He's fine, but just kinda twerpish. He can take one quote, repackage it 80 different ways and reuse it for months. It's sloppy. He's also reached a DeCourcey level of crankiness on Twitter.
