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.

    • Yeah, It was and we got unlucky not to win a WS with it.   Thinking back Bonilla (mostly) and his agent were masterful in ensuring he’d have an income most of the rest of his life. $1 million until 2035 by the Mets was masterful. Hard to believe the Mets would agree to it.    Getting paid $34 million and for 34 years after his retirement. I know deferred money is more common now. But, Bobby was ahead of the curve. Also, $1 million was more in 2001 than it is in today’s game. The other $500,000 partially from us until 2023 was also an extra 24 years of income.
    • And you know this how? I ask because I’m a restaurant guy that was in the process of buying/opening a restaurant in Westminster when the pandemic hit in March. My initial thought was on crabs (AUCE) and full service options for breakfast through dinner.    I spoke to several distributors and most of the crabs and crabmeat is from Louisiana and Texas. Here Maryland/Virginia product is mixed in during the season. In bulk, the Louisiana stuff is very affordable even for Jumbo Lump.    FYI, G&M and Timbuktu were owned by the same family for a considerable amount of years. I can’t say that I know if they still are but any change would’ve been in the last couple of years. Speaking of foreign crab meat, It’s Phillips that uses crab meat from a cove they created in Indonesia. They transported Blue Crab from here to there and it’s essentially farm raised, fed fish local to that area, and tastes off IMO. @CarrRun49 You can almost always get Backfin at Giant for around $12. It’s from South America, Peru as I recall. Which is much better than making it out of canned Salmon. The thought of that makes me want to 🤮  I think I’d rather not have them
    • Thank you for the video. I generally “scout” high school players and really hadn’t watched that much of him but he really has a sweet swing. His outfield play isn’t amazing but much better than we have marched out their since Markakis wasn’t resigned. Man that is a great swing!  I know I have said this before, but I was told 15-20 years ago that when you draft, you don’t want the 16 year old with a full beard because he is already peaking maturely but a 20 year old that can’t grow a beard has more to grow into. Not every gm goes with that, but this kid looks like a kid and has room to grow. Also with that logic, they haven’t peaked performance wise.  Physically I can see him turning into a Manny Ramirez body type(let’s hope he has that kind of career without whatever). Also why I like Rutschman, baby face with room to mature into a projectable body type. He reminds me of a Buster Posey at the same age.  Great job on this pick. I was never sold on Martin or Torkleson  (If any Os exects want to employ me, reach out and send me to Cuba!)😉
    • Every time I hear Crab cakes I think about Koco's Pub. Really miss those.
    • Sadly, Timbuktu no longer uses blue crab meat either. More flavorless Asian  crab. Sure makes for tremendous profit margin when you can fool consumers.
