Siena over Vanderbilt.

Siena over Vanderbilt.

Siena over Vanderbilt.

I saw Siena live this year (when JMU beat them, yes, I know, not a ringing endorsement) and they are really good.

Hasbrouck and Ubiles are a really good backcourt.

Book it. Siena over Vanderbilt.

Good call Yardbirds, well done my friend.

If anyone should feel badly, it's me. I had UCONN going to the FINAL FOUR!!!!:rolleyes::mad::D

The commissioner of one of my pools had Vandy beating UConn in the final game. And not because he's clueless about the game. He's got this delusional hang-up about picking dark horses to make the final four. Says if you pick UCLA, Carolina, and Kansas, you'll be competing against everyone else with UCLA, Carolina and Kansas, so you're better off hanging your hat on 2, 3 and 4 seeds. Maybe this will be the year that cures him.

Why was I dumb enough to think Clemson could go to the sweet 16??

Nope, I had them too.

I thought they would play stellar D and get a lot of fast break points from turnovers.

It looked good early, but they just fell apart.

Yeah it doesn't look like Henderson is gonna be able to save them today like he did Thursday, he's not dominating like he did against Belmont. Duke's gotta be pretty pissed at how badly Nelson has played. Not a very clutch performance from your best player.

Still a lot of time left though.

Duke is done.

I don't know...the refs are trying their damnedest to get them back in this. WVU has been outplaying them the whole game and is finally starting to his their threes...so now the refs have to start calling even more ticky tack fouls. The officiating in this game has been so completely one sided.

Since the UNC game at the end of the year, Nelson has been beyond horrible.

Stupid decisions, poor shooting...Just totally out of whack.

Singler has hit a wall and disappeared at the end of the year as well.

They aren't shooting well and just don't have that look about them.

WVU is killing them on the offensive boards too...They are getting out hustled and flat out missing way too many shots.

I will be very surprised if they come back and win this game.

Even when they were winning late in the first half, i wasn't that confident because WVU hadn't hit a 3 and they had foul trouble and Duke had 1/3 of their points from the FT line....They haven't shot well the whole game, even when they were winning.

Wow, what an intelligent response. What exactly do you disagree with?

Oh yeah I almost forgot...:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

Ok..How about this...That was an incredibly stupid post by you.

The game is being called very ticky tack on both sides...Each side has a lot of foul trouble and each side is being called for touch fouls.

    • Just in time, the AFL season starts today.    As a reminder, this year the O’s players are on the Surprise Saguaros, and include: Rylan Bannon Cody Carroll Dean Kremer  David Lebron  Mason McCoy Alex Wells  With Austin Hays joining once the major league season ends.   Kyle Moore (Delmarva’s manager) is serving as one of the coaches. The regular season runs through October 25.    I’m looking forward to having some more box scores to read!
    • Was Mancini bad enough last year to be in the running for national comeback player of the year?
    • I don't think this was a case of players and coaches overlooking Temple or letting the big wins get to their head, this was a case of a QB who struggled under the first pressure he saw and awful play calling, particularly in the red zone.  The fact that Temple tried to give them the game twice and the awful play calling kept trying to stuff it up the middle, when they have Piggy, McFarland and Leake. Are you telling me that anyone here thinks if they had spread out the defense, put Piggy in shotgun with McFarland and Leake that they don't think they could get a yard with a option play? My biggest concern is that the game calling is always going to be this unimaginative and awful in the red zone when the line is going to be dominated. Good coordinators understand their weakness and strengths and play to their strengths in personnel and don't try the cookie cutter old school approach. I'm also concerns that Jackson will continue to struggle when he pressured. He's not very mobile back there and once he was under pressure his decision making and accuracy dropped off significantly. That's a yellow flag for me. This game was a giant let down because they had an opportunity to go under a Nationally televised game ranked against Penn State but instead, looked like the same old Terp football program that shrinks as soon as it as a chance to shine. I also have concerns that Locksley did not over rule the play calls and also went for that awful two-point conversion. Had they gone for field goal and made it, the Terps could have gone ahead with a field goal instead of being stuffed twice on the goal line in the 4th QTR. It was one game, and people can improve and learn, but what I saw was a coaching staff and quarterback that appeared to be over their heads in their first real test of adversity.  Now if they can come out and play a good close game against Penn State it might heal some things, but only a win would erase this debacle.
    • My vote goes to all of the fans who actually watched a lot of the O's games on the tube.  Even if the games were used as 'background noise' while you were doing something a lot more pleasurable.  2 thumbs up.  
    • He has certainly hit for more power since coming back from AAA. Not sure if he tweaked something of if he's just running into more pitches, but the power increase has been the biggest difference in hitting of late. If the power is for real, and I'm not sure that it is until I hear he's changed some kind of approach, then he has a chance to stick around for awhile at 3B. He's still a below average 3B overall and will not to have a consistent jump in production to be considered a nugget towards a winning team in the future.
    • I think it clearly Mancini. Especially with the way the AS game went for him and it’s also a comeback year for him. I’d be very surprised if it were anyone else. Though Means and Villar would be solid choices if chosen. 
    • Whoever has the highest WAR. 🙄
