Henson is out for the game today.

At least some of the Terps fans will be happy.

Need him for the sweet 16 and beyond.

Yep.

They are saying they won't rule him out for tomorrow yet but he can't even catch or grip the ball without pain.

So, why even remotely risk anything by playing tomorrow?

If they win today, they will need Henson against either team but they can win without him.

I didn't see the game, but just read on espn.com that there were a couple of controversial non-calls that went UNC's way at the end of the win against State. I'd be interested in the comments of anyone who watched.

The last play of the game was a good no call. The Marshall buckett definitey could have been a charge, but it was close.

The last possession the score was tied, Kendall Marshall basically knocked down the defender, however it was a weird angle, thus the defender was moving, hence it wasn't really a charge. However, since Kendall knocked the guy down, it wasn't really a blocking foul either. The refs let the play go, and Marshall banked one in..Could've gone either way, but since he scored I guess they're saying it "went UNC's way".

The officiating was poor throughout for both teams (Zeller's 5th foul was atrocious), but if I'm being completely honest, more calls went our way than State's.

Hang on there, sailor. We need to win a couple of games before we get there. ;) A second-round match-up of a #1 seed vs. the winner of the #8 vs. #9 is often very interesting. One of the first things that I think of when that subject is addressed is 1990, when our 8th-seeded Heels took out #1 Oklahoma on a last-second bucket by Rick Fox. :eek:

Kelly being out really hurts Duke. Good game by FSU.

FSU is a confusing team. I wouldn't be surprised if they lost their first round game, and I wouldn't be surprised if they went to the Final 4.

Their defense and rebounding usually show up every game...but they struggle to score. It makes them very difficult to predict, as you said.

All I know is they lost to Harvard and Princeton. So inconsistent to say the least (granted both of those are top 100 RPI teams)

My FAVORITE non title winning game ever!

Excellent defense by FSU in their game against Duke. That said, several of Duke's 14 turnovers in the first half were unforced errors caused by lack of concentration. Not Duke's best game, but Kelly being out definitely hurt them and FSU exposed Duke's weaknesses. I'll root for FSU today but will be shocked if they win.

.

The last time that these 2 teams played, Florida State beat the Tar Heels up, spit in their faces, and threw them down the stairs.

90-57, Seminoles.

I think that Carolina will win by at least 10 points today.

    • The main thing that would speed the game up would be a pitch clock and batters stepping out at their own risk. No calling time except for after a foul ball off the leg.  That could knock 20-30 minutes off a game although I think pitchers would have to get used to working faster starting in the minors.  Three batter minimum won’t shave off a bunch of time but it will still improve my personal enjoyment of the game. I don’t know anyone who enjoys constant pitching changes and commercials. 
    • When I was an intern in college I worked for the state.  I was shocked that half of the civil engineers did nothing all day.  I would see them reading novels each day.  I chalked it up to government workers.    But as I went into the private workforce I have seen the pattern among professional employees.  Half the employees do all the work while the rest effectively do nothing.  They aren’t reading novels these days but it comes down to zero real work being done.  I am not sure why this occurs but it seems to be the norm wherever I have worked.  It used to bother me the first few years but then I realized it is just easier to do things myself and ignore them.     In baseball there is no place to hide. If you don’t pull your weight the world knows it.  
    • That’s definitely not true, he was a perfectly good 4th starter on a playoff team in 2019. He projects statistically to be a solid 2 WAR in 2019 and at 27 the aging curve isn’t that harsh yet. He’ll make something like 14M over the two seasons. I think Bundy would likely get something like 3/36 on the open market. There is at least 10M of surplus there, probably a bit more. Especially with teams trying to conserve money, getting a guy who projects as a #4/5 SP for about 5M is a desirable thing. Also, literally the only thing between Bundy and being a #2/3 pitcher is HR rate. He’s a league wide outlier in that respect. So he’s kind of a guy a team acquiring him can dream of upside. 
    • Hit the nail on the head. If game times were guaranteed to jump from three hours to two hours per game, I would at least have to consider the proposal. This is going to have zero affect on average game time. Like you said saving 5 minutes from a three hour game isn't going to make a difference or be noticeable.  
    • The length of the game is a myth, nobody cares how long the game is if the game is interesting. Saving two minutes a game is not going to change anything the problem is nothing to do with the length of the game. manfred Is an idiot, he’s on this stupid campaign to  have a lot of rules that have nothing to do with improving the game. This pitching rule is incredibly stupid. It will accomplish nothing. Banning the shift is stupid, it will accomplish nothing. As I said, a highlight of a homerun is the most boring highlight in all of sports. We need fewer homeruns, because then they will Regain their importance, and we need more base runners. There’s a tremendous amount of drama when there’s a runner on third, there’s drama when there’s bases-loaded, or one guy who runs really fast on second. This rule is stupid. It’s not just stupid in itself, it’s stupid because it will accomplish nothing towards making the game more enjoyable, and if the game is enjoyable, it doesn’t matter how long it is.
    • 2019 OPS  Home - .842 Road - .706 I think Bundy could be a solid #4 in an NL stadium like Petco. Maybe even a #3. 
    • The funny thing is that he definitely doesn’t even sit 88-91 as a starter, that’s what he was in 1 innings relief appearances. I don’t think Longenhagen had seen him pitch though. But I understand skepticism about no stuff guys, it’s not like he has a plus breaking or changeup either.
