  1. Yeah, agree with your second point, it's not a huge deal. And agree it's probably mainly a style of play issue. But with regard to your first point, back when we were in the ACC it felt like things were way more balanced (other than blatant ref bias in Duke games, and maybe UNC games). There were actually games back in the day where it felt like we'd get favoritism against the bottom feeders. Even our current out of conference games, you might see an extra call or two go our way. Simply doesn't happen in conference games. Guess it's the big ten style of play and the fact Turgeon rarely has had big inside bangers (other than Fernando). I do wonder how much of it is the intangible of how well the coach works the refs.
  2. I really hate complaining about refs but why is it we're never on the right side of the ref bias? It's either neutral or against us. Ohio St is playing well and did enough to win but man the refs really handed them the game. Got flashbacks to those Duke games where the refs essentially would hand them a 10 point lead and you had to play a perfect game just for the chance to win.
  3. .25 a week is 1 pound of muscle a month for long term lifters, which I previously posted in here. .5 is possibly doable on the max end for newb gains, which Davis is not. He gained 5-6 pounds of muscle if we're being generous. I would guess he "supplemented" so bump that number up slightly. https://www.menshealth.com/fitness/a26239086/how-much-muscle-you-can-gain-month/ "In one study from the University of Central Missouri, experienced lifters gained an average of 2.18 to 2.33 pounds of muscle over the course of an eight-week training program—not as much as you might expect from a newbie just hitting the gym."
  4. General rule of thumb is advanced long term lifters can add like a pound of muscle a month.
  5. Four straight 3s by Terps at end of game if I'm not mistaken. Felt like Cowan was conserving energy, dude is pretty clutch. Really turned their season around behind Stix, just finally playing up to their ability with some consistency.
  6. Tremendous shooting in the second half. Really have to credit Nebraska, this game shouldn't have been close. Tony, agree with you on Turgeon, but sometimes you just have to credit the other team. We do need to work in Lindo, depth keeps shrinking as it does every year.
  7. Insane how much better they are at home. Wish they could sustain this level of play. Stix has really taken his game to the next level. And when Cowan is locked in, everything just flows right.
  8. Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn Sources: Kobe Bryant was on his way to a travel basketball game with his daughter Gianna when the helicopter crashed. Those aboard the helicopter also included another player and parent.
  9. It's also the risk fans take spewing vitriolic hate at opposing players. You just know those Indiana fans were spewing hate. That has never made sense to me when fans go after a guy when it can clearly backfire and motivate him. Also noticed their fans over the top whining after basically every call against them.
  10. He plays way better pumped up. He's been passive and not nearly tapping his full potential until recently. Obviously needs to not cross the line though.
  11. Sounds like 3-4 daughters were on board but not confirmed. Holy crap.
  12. Gorgeous first half. They just can never sustain it, but unreal finish HUGE road against a legit team. That Kobe news is just brutal.
  13. Well, we weren't beating KC so that's a bit of a consolation. Still hard to believe you got out coached by Pees.
  14. Home road splits this year are truly insane. Doesn't even look like the same team. The Mitchell twins got all the hype but Donta Scott looks legit. Body looks mostly filled out already. Would like to see him bang inside a little more. Ayala is a lousy ball handler.
  15. Series clinching walkoff homer to go to World Series and zero excitement and he's freaking out about having his jersey opened.
  16. This just keeps getting worse and worse. Can find a bunch of youtube vids now like the ones Tony posted above where you clearly hear the booming noise before breaking balls. These guys were over the top egregious about it.
  17. Yeah, I would go overboard trying to add WRs. Draft a legit one and sign Robby Anderson. We just saw what happens when you're relying on scrubs in the post season. Beef up at WR and both lines and we should be in really good shape.
  18. Bubble team that won't do anything in the tourney.
  19. Always found this false narrative that Harbaugh and co. pushed to be be laughable. It was like 90% the same personnel this year as last. "We built the offense around Lamar!" .. well no effing crap you're going to go run heavy/block heavy and play to Lamar's strengths. That's common sense. And then you go away from that when it matters the most. Was Roman trying to show teams he's more than just a run game guy?
  20. Roman got run out of San Fran and Buffalo but magically became a genius this season. Harbaugh was on the verge of being fired last year but he too suddenly became a genius. Nope. It was all Lamar, he made them look good and then they failed him.
  21. Still can't believe Greg Roman got out coached by Dean effing Pees of all people. Mahomes has Kelce, Hill, solid secondary receivers and a head coach not doing insane stuff. Lamar probably watching this wishing he could trade places. And absolutely have to blame Harbaugh and the play call for those failed fourths. Nobody in their right mind doesn't punt and then take points in those situations. It's the damn playoffs. You don't take degenerate risk and possibly beat yourself.
  22. What did they "figure out"? That Harbaugh does stupid stuff to cost us points and our receiving corp isn't good? The Lamar gameplan definitely goes out the window when we fall behind by two scores. I'm still kinda shocked how blatantly Harbaugh mismanaged this game.
  23. Harbaugh honestly hurts you more than he helps you. Best kicker of all time and MVP and he comes out taking insane risks that completely swung the momentum. All you had to do was not dig a hole and Lamar probably plays within himself and we come back against Pees prevent. But nope. That degenerate had to go for it on multiple fourth downs to show how smart he is. Just an egregious waste of a season and horrendous coaching job.
  24. Harbaugh is really effing stupid.
