This is just for Pedro and Ravenbird ;)

All talk of the smaller conference tournies can go in here.

Northern Iowa, #1 seed in the Valley is down by 6 with 8 minutes left against 9th seeded Indiana State.

God I hope so, Ive been saying for over a month the SEC only deserves no more than 3 bids, even though people like Lunardi have been saying 5.

UNI has recovered and now has a 7 point lead with under a minute left.

In case me talking about UMBC all the time isn't annoying enough to some OHers, I thank you for this opportunity to express my sadness about UNC-Asheville's cinderella season ending with a loss to Radford in the second round of the Big South tournament last night. :002_scry:

Go Big Dawgz tomorrow!!! (I can call them that when they're playing BU since Terriers are smaller than Retrievers, but it does sound kind of funny calling them "big dogs" when they're playing the Albany Great Danes.)

That was the one thing I didn't like about UCF (my alma mater) moving to C-USA. They were in the MAC for football but Atlantic Sun for everything else. Watching the A-Sun tourney to me is just as exciting if not more than watching the big dance.

Now the only way UCF will make the big dance if they (or someone else) beats Memphis in the C-USA tourney. So for those of you who think I'm being selfish, yes, I am. I miss seeing my school be a 12-14 seed, hang within 10 points the entire game, but fade towards the end b/c of the lack of depth.

Ok, I'm sort of kidding, but it did seem to help Justin Fry when I said to bench him. Seriously, why the heck can't our little man hit a three pointer to save his life all of a sudden?! :cussing:

By the way, Fry is having a pretty good day despite getting into a little foul trouble.

Ouch. 0-7 now for Greene from 3-point range and BU just got the lead up to 11. What a rough end to a great career for a guy who has meant so much to UMBC. :002_scry:

We came back!!! Down 11 with 5 minutes to go and we win in OT 79-75! I :hearts: LOVE my Retrievers more than Cindy loves her perfect one. Even... no especially... Justin Fry! He was everything he usually hasn't been down the stretch, Proctor was everything he usually is, and Greene made two huge free throws to ice it after not scoring for 44 minutes and 50 seconds (although he did have 8 assists and 8 rebounds). AWESOME game! Now we play #7 seed Albany tomorrow, who upset Vermont earlier today. Only problem is that the tournament is on Albany's home court. Oh well. Hopefully they all caught whatever sickness Mike Trimboli (Vermont's star guard who was playing sick) had! GO BIG DAWGZ!!!

That's how UMBC does it!!!!!!!!!!! What a comeback' date=' now beat those Catamounts, I mean Albany![/quote']

We did! Greene came storming back with 29 points (because that's what happens to UMBC players when I post on OH to bench them) and we took care of the not-so-Great Danes 64-58. Next up: evil Binghamton next Saturday. Hopefully a few more of their players will get arrested stealing magnum condoms from Wal-Mart this week! Oh and by the way, Bench Matt Spadafora! :P

    • Another article on Reed from May 2019.  The first 33 games of 2019 have featured a paltry .205/.282/.410 slash as a 24-year-old in Double-A. An 84 wRC+ despite being slightly older than his average competition in the Texas League. Those numbers often describe a prospect afterthought, especially with most statistical categories beginning to normalize. Yet, a look under the hood suggests Reed is on the verge of a breakout that could make him a hot commodity throughout the prospect community before the end of the regular season. https://prospects365.com/2019/05/18/buddy-reed-and-buying-before-a-breakout/
    • It was a heck of a lot better than 2000-2009.  2012 was a truly great year, and 2014 wasn't bad, either.  And hopefully we look back at '19 as the year we finally got on track to having a top-to-bottom modern organization for the first time since the 1970s.
    • OK, I will exhale now.    Have a great Thanksgiving, Tony, and enjoy your time off!
    • Actually he would have to be up by the beginning of 2024, because he would be out of options at that point, using his three option years in 2021, 2022 and 2023, which could potentially further mess up his development.
    • If you're taking Javier and having him mostly sit the bench or hit .100 for all of 2020 I think you'd be looking at him as the possible shortstop in 2024.  He was miserable in low A last year.  On a normal track he'd probably go back there in 2020.  Instead you'd have him essentially miss the year, just working out with the O's.  You probably put him in Frederick in 2021. Maybe if he's really good he ends the year in Bowie.  Most of the year in AA in 2022.  If things work out well he's in AAA in '23, maybe a late callup.  But being more conservative you're looking at mid-year 2024.  Things could break better, his talent really comes out and he's ahead of that schedule.  But in no way do you expect him to be the MLB shortstop in '22.
    • In my opinion, you are WAY too worried about Mountcastle’s defense.    He’s not some klutz out there.    He has a weak arm.    The fact that he played 3 seasons on the left side of the infield tells you that he has the athleticism to play 1B or COF at a reasonably good level.       As to whether I’d lock him up now at that price, it’s a little tough to say.   If you think he’s likely to be about on the level with a Josh Bell or Trey Mancini, it’s probably worth the risk.    If you think he’s more of a Mitch Moreland level bat, then probably not.       And before people start poo-pooing Mitch Moreland, the guy has had a respectable 10-year career in the majors and had a career .883 OPS in the minors.    Most top 100 prospects would love to have Moreland’s career.
