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!!!

Ok, the crappy web service the America East Conference is using to broadcast their tournament is GARBAGE! I'm so glad the games tomorrow are on MASN and ESPN 360!

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

    • They will have to adjust to a system that matches the QB. I’m sure Bill B is prepared to exploit Cam’s strength. He is not a traditional pocket passer anymore than Jackson is. They can preserve him somewhat by reducing or eliminating the planned run plays. I don’t think you can get rid of the plays where Cam will take off as that’s who he is.
    • I wouldn't give Lamar a long term contract.  Just Franchise him for a couple of years and then let him go.  I can't see him being effective as a running quarterback after 7 years.  How many running backs are effective after 7 years of starting?
    • If they're coordinating together, it's collusion. Having a meeting and creating some type of agreement qualifies as that - so the bolded sentence would definitely be that. They're also not free to do business however they please - they agreed to a collective bargaining agreement with the players. And they're also beholden to national anti-trust legislation like the Sherman Act that doesn't allow that sort of thing.
    • It would be wrong to call a meeting of the general managers and tell them they should not spend so much money on free agents: 1) Each GM should be able to figure that out on their own for each FA player. 2) Telling all the GMs that is grounds for the Union to file a grievance.
    • Well I don’t remember reading that in your original post, but yes that would be the very poster child of collusion. However, publicly saying, “it is stupid to sign a washed up veteran for too much money,” Is neither wrong, nor wrong. And it would be not wrong to publicly say, “the owners shouldn’t spend so much money on free agents” And it probably wouldn’t be wrong to say, “I’m going to have a meeting of all the general managers and tell them that they shouldn’t pay so much money to free agents because they aren’t worth it.”  After all, if they are free to do business as they wish, and they all agree that high dollar free agents are overvalued, that may be a fine line between “collusion“ and “good business practice.“ I’m not attempting to argue against what happened, just Wondering if it would still have been collusion if the owners had publicly explained that it was bad business?
    • It amazes me that people that were so angry when I suggested that you shouldn't feed your kids hot dogs and sodas are now so worried about ccvid. Heart Disease deaths in this country are 650k a year. Strokes kill 140k a year in the US and Diabetes 85k. And 620k from Diabetes.     The same thing that makes you at risk from dying from covid is the same thing that puts you at risk from dying from Heart Disease, Diabetes and stroke.  Yet I have yet to hear anyone else say they have given up processed food, meats, and exercising and eating more fruits and vegetables more since Covid started.    
    • I'm sure they're stretching out to the point that first start might be 5 or 75 pitches, then 6 or 90, then opened up.
