ACC/Big Ten BEATDOWN is this week

Recommended Posts

I refuse to call it a challenge anymore. The Big Ten is garbage. The ACC will run them off the court again!

The Hokies will get things started tonight.

Well, a game the ACC maybe needed to win was the Miami/OSU game and Miami lost.

The ACC needs Clemson and Duke tonight.

UVA isn't likely to win.

McClinton getting kicked out doomed Miami.

They aren't a tournament team without him.

I think UVa has a good enough shot. They only lost at Syracuse by 3 (and led by double digits in the second half.)

Well, Duke(of course!) wins a game in the ACC/little 10 challenge.

Dominated the supposed second best team in the conference.

I liked seeing Duke hit the glass that well tonight.

Their defense is ridiculously good.

So, it is 3-3.

Looking at the games tomorrow night, I think the ACC should win at least 3 of the games...If they do that, they win the "challenge" again.

Gotta be honest, Dook really impressed me last night. Their D can give Carolina some trouble. They went into an extremely hostile envrionment against a top 10 team (although I think Purdue is slightly overrated) and kicked their tails in.

It will be very hard to score against them this year.

I thought Singler was very solid last year, but nothing about him screamed to me "STUD". I even thought James Johnson from Wake really deserved ACC Freshman of the Year over him.

But, this year? WOW.

He has improved so much, its incredible. No doubt in my mind he is First Team All-ACC this season. He looked tremendous last night.

He is a lot stronger....That is a big difference.

Is UNC better than the Oklahoma Thunder?

This team is ridiculous.

If they win it all, I think this is going to end up being the best team in the NCAA since the 91-92 Duke teams.

A few minutes after I posted this, Vitale talked about how UNC is like an NBA team and to bring on the Thunder and Clippers.

    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970, the last day before the All-Star break, the Orioles split a double header with the Detroit Tigers.  The Birds dropped game one 7-3 but came back to win game two 13-3.  The team enters the break with a 54-33 record. Dave McNally (12-6) was shelled in the first game: 2.2 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 1 K, 3 HR allowed).  The Orioles were held to 6 hits with Davey Johnson going 2 for 4 with 1 run scored. BOX SCORE Game two started much like game one did.  Starter Tom Phoebus lasted 2.2 innings and allowed 3 runs on 5 hits while walking 2 and striking out 1.  Dick Hall relieved Phoebus and recorded the win with his 6.1 inning effort.  Hall allowed 1 hit and 1 walk in his appearance. Boog Powell, Elrod Hendricks and Merv Rettenmund all homered for the Orioles.  Rettenmund went 4 for 5 with 2 2B, 2 runs scored and 2 RBI.  Powell went 2 for 5 with 2 runs scored and 4 RBI.  Hendricks went 2 for 4 with 2 runs scored and 2 RBI.  Brooks Robinson contributed a 3 for 4 with 1 2B and 1 run scored effort as well. BOX SCORE
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970 the Orioles defeated the Detroit Tigers 6-5.  Mike Cuellar improved to 11-5 on the year with a 7.0 inning effort in which he allowed 5 runs on 8 hits while walking 2 and striking out 2. Cuellar helped himself out by going 3 for 4 with a homerun (his second), 1 run scored and 2 RBI.  Homeruns by Elrod Hendricks (1 for 4, 1 R, 2 RBI) and Terry Crowley (1 for 4, 1 R, 2 RBI) accounted for the rest of the Orioles run total. Bill Freehan came up big for the Tigers: 3 for 3, 1 3B, 1 HR, 3 runs scored and 1 RBI. BOX SCORE
    • Variations in value on players almost don't matter if they're talented enough, because salaries are pro-rated.  The short season makes wacky things like us signing Puig for a $4 million (after the pro rata adjustment) deal plausible.  That wouldn't be worth it at all if we had to pay for a full season.  A player would have to be massively overvalued for him to not make sense.
    • Well the Festus and Doc back and forth mostly. "When you start to read the readin. How do you know the feller that wrote the readin wrote the readin right!?"
    • Didn't know I liked Gunsmoke until I started watching it about a year ago.
    • It would appear he's making music now!
