Mid-Majors and Little Conferences Rule (Non-CAA Thread)

Recommended Posts

If anybody saw the Mason game against Penn State, you saw how good Mason is going to be next year. They had the game won with 5 seconds left and should have fouled Talor Battle who probably has espn #1 highlight of the night with an impossible 3 to send the game into OT.

Mike Morrison showed incredible moves in the post and was scoring 13-15 feet away from the basket. Pearson's moves are unbelievable; along with Kevin Foster and Johnnie Williams they easily have the best big men in the CAA next year. They’re going to be giving teams in and out of the conference a lot of trouble. Along with Cam long who has ice cold water flowing through his veins - and if Andre Cornelius improves his ball control, Mason should get an at large bid next year if they don't win the CAA trny which I really expect them to do as well.

Predictions:

Mason wins both the regular and tournament crown next year.

Cam Long wins player of the year in the CAA.

Johnnie Williams wins rookie of the year in the CAA.

Mike Morrison is first team all CAA defense.

I may be showing some favoritism towards Mason but I think they’re going to be that good. I wouldn’t be surprised if they crack the top 25 next year. If anybody else wants to give a scouting report of their favorite CAA team it would be much appreciated.

After tonight's performance, looks as if Sanders punched his ticket to the NBA. Don't have to see Maynor, Sanders, or Coach Grant on the sidelines for VCU anymore. Now I know how the rest of the CAA felt when Will Thomas finally graduated.

I think you're right about that. A lot of our good players are young guys. Can't wait. I think you're right that next year will be a lot of fun. Will be my first full year at Mason too so I'll be able to catch all the home games hopefully. That is if I don't have any night classes.

    • I can’t be the only one who saw a list like this and could hear Bordick reading off each of these numbers in succession despite them being shown on the screen. Mike Bordick, eternal friend of the visually impaired. 
    • Well, the Orioles got off to a terrible start in what is hopefully Elias' final tankathon season. They owned the 28th pick in the 2022 MLB draft upon leaving Boston. However, they've now rallied up to the number four pick, just two games behind Colorado. The Elijah Green sweepstakes are under way!
    • Of course I knew him but I never watched him. I thought those cartoons were stupid, even as an 8-year old. Tom and Jerry too. But the Warner bros gang were brilliant.  i was very fond of Mighty Mouse, too. The artwork was stunning.
    • Dont hold you're breath. 
    • o   Young man, you're no Walter Johnson.   o
    • I think a fan with a certain bit of refinement should understand that prospect rankings are not definitive statements on the health of a player development system.  What the O's need to be able to do to win consistently at the ML level is find and develop players better than their peers.  Taking Rutchsman doesn't actually resolve that issue.  Whiffing on 1-2 doesn't resolve that issue.  Neither does losing 100 games a year.  That issue is resolved in improving the O's processes in finding and developing amateur talent.  So if you want to criticize Elias or the rebuild, criticize that.  The fact that the O's stink in 2021, or 2020, or 2023, was predestined several years before it happened. You hit the O's biggest organizational failure on the head: The failure to develop quality pitching.  I've said this before and I'll say it again: The reason so many highly ranked minor league arms fail here and go on to do better elsewhere in some cases is because pitching for the O's is the most difficult pitching environment in the big leagues, and I don't think it is close.  Based on who and where you pitch, this is easily the worst place to pitch in the major leagues, other than maybe Colorado. So if Elias doesn't solve that particular riddle, he is mostly likely to fail.  I don't think he's infallible.  It's very possible he does fail.  But I'm not going to get up in arms about the O's being shit 2 and a half years into what I takes twice that time to favorably construct.
