    Non-UConn NCAA Baseball Tourney

    I don't understand FSU right now. They have not been very good this year...lost 13 in a 20 game stretch, had mediocre batting and were short on good pitchers... Yet here they are having won five straight games against Georgia, LSU, and Arkansas. I suspect that Arkansas wins the next two.

    Muffet continues her anti-Geno smear campaign

    Sometimes I think we do not attribute enough to why we, as humans, are so tribal. Why we fear the "other". I am pretty sure that a survival skill, aquired during our evolution, was to immediately recognize our group from "others". A hunter running into another group in the woods would...

    Muffet continues her anti-Geno smear campaign

    Males are protected in employment discrimination...but, EEO says that EEO laws were passed to correct a history....women..minority groups. Protected Class: The groups protected from the employment discrimination by law. These groups include men and women on the basis of sex; any group which...

    Even a casual outsider knows Akok is 6'9 and 3/4 and Pepe's is the soul of New Haven style pizza.

    UConn to the NBE?

    The Autonomous Five have already broken away...for all intents. The autonomy measures -- which the power conferences had all but demanded -- will permit those leagues to decide on things such as cost-of-attendance stipends and insurance benefits for players, staff sizes, recruiting rules and...

    Ahhh...missed that somehow... My wife and I like that area...she worked for the Colorado Springs law enforcement many years back.

    Legal question.

    Good point....would require checking Connecticut case law...but it looks like a "guardian" acting as pro se for an incapacitated individual would not be allowed for a criminal court proceeding. NY, for instance, allows the court appointment of a guardian ad litem when someone has a significant...

    It is a long tradition for europeans to call Americans "yanks".. Even Alabama boys hitting the beaches of Normandy were yanks. Cagney even sang it in "Over there"...Send the word...The yanks are coming...

    Legal question.

    There is really no "insanity defense" for this...the courts have found that the person knows what they are doing..and knows it is wrong. The FTD just removes caring about whether it is right or wrong...that part of our frontal lobe socializes us. The court would probably like to hear that some...

    Legal question.

    FTD is not really treatable and is a progressive disease....my thoughts are with you.. An insidious disease...cancer, to me, holds much less fear.

    Legal question.

    I think the prosecutor needs to be educated... Your wife appears to have bvFTD, a type of dementia called behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia....and socially inappropriate actions are common...and legal trouble is not uncommon. For a minor offense such as you described...a letter to...

    The Thai defense left so many unmarked in or near the box. Looked unorganized. Also obvious that USA had a serious speed advantage...Megan Rapinoe could just shift gears and blast into an open space.

    No Sissyou.. Racking up wins over Florida, Michigan, Notre Dame, Michigan Florida, Ok. State, Auburn....teams that Nova, even in your most delusionary sweat dreams, could not play.

    Zissou...yes FSU has had a couple of down years in football...yet is still top ten in wins over the last ten seasons. But even in their worst season in 40 years, FSU was lightyears ahead of Villanova. Sagarin had FSU as being 86 places higher ranked than #153 ranked Nova. And, here is the...

    This game could challenge the current tournament record of 37 runs... against Ohio State by FSU. FSU scored 8, 9, and 11 in separate innings...had 32 by end of the 5th.

    Zissou...LOL Flailing about... ...The New Big East is like the fabled Brigadoon...it comes alive for a month and then disappears into the mist. Now..the ACC...they won both the basketball and football NC's last year. And they will be playing baseball in the CWS. The Big East ain't the Big...

    Oh Jeez...Nova is a small time school... Football? ....Hardly existant. Did you know that Nova could not even schedule 11 games next year? They are going to play an exhibition game against a Canadian club team in Buffalo that won't count as a game. A 10 game schedule. Baseball?....hardly...

    "Louisville got in because of it's football strength, sort of. (Remember we actually beat them that year in a game shortly before the vote.) What that expansion really turned on was FSU flexing its muscle within the conference." But also in a larger context...that year UConn was 5-7 and...

    Duke did not have a winning conference record...winning a game in the Super Regional against the best of the SEC was their season...they overachieved in the post season.

    I find the ECU coaches pitiful whimper of "we're just a small school" to be a whine. He wouldn't have liked FSU's assignment any better...taking on national #4 seed at their home and then LSU at theirs. Hey...he could have had last four ins like FSU and Duke...and I think he would have been...

    LOL...You don't think that Louisville wants to win the ACC? Something that they have not done? Hard to win when Boston College throws a 3 hitter and Clemson carries a no hitter into the 9th. I guess Louisville's coach told his batters to strike out and hit outs so they wouldn't tire running...
