2009 Big East Tournament

Recommended Posts

Anybody else watching the Big East trny? A lot of good basketball; can’t wait for tomorrows lineup.

The Seton Hall – Syracuse game – let’s just say the players are really into it. Ever since the technical’s, Syracuse has erupted.

Eric Devendorf's actions in last night's game against Seton Hall really got under my skin for some reason. I mean that stupid thing he did where he was beating his chest like king kong after he hit a late 3 made him look silly as all get out.

So anyway, I figured I would reciprocate a little bit--is there anyone uglier in college basketball than Eric Devendorf? The guy can nail some treys, this is true, but boy does he look like he could be Bill Haverchuk's brother in Freaks and Geeks. ;)

BTW, I have nothing against 'Cuse and am a big fan of Boeheim, I think he's a hell of a coach.

Also BTW, if this were a Syracuse Orange board, this would be a great picture for a "Caption This" thread. LOL. For instance, look at his teammate in the background sitting on the bench with the white head band. He looks like he's wondering really hard, "what the hell is this guy doing?"

Crazy crazy crazy end of regulation in the Syracuse v. UConn game.

Holy crap, what a shame for Devendorf and Syracuse. Unreal.

It's quite a shame for 'Cuse, no doubt. Devendorf, however, I don't feel bad for at all. He's quite the epitome of a tool bag. I cannot stand that pretender for some reason.

This baby's going to Triple-OT. What an amazing battle this has turned out to be. It's March, and this is madness. I love College Basketball.

I don't like him much either, but he's no different from Vazquez, Hines Ward, Pedrioia...etc. Guys that annoy the hell out of you if they're not on your team.

I agree with that... and can easily see how non-Terps fans would see GV as such.

After the Carolina game, I told a Maryland friend that Vazquez reminds me of Hines Ward. Great player, but you just want to kick his you know what if you're rooting against him.

    • Houston has also been able to acquire arms late in the draft or cheaply in the international market and develop them into trade assets. I'm prepping for Rule 5 draft stuff and it's unbelievable how many good arms they have in the minors that came out of nowhere (10+ round pick or older international signees). They all throw hard and miss bats. 
    • Hopefully the Nats finish this thing off today.  They have gone I think 81-40 since starting 19-31.  That is remarkable.  The Cardinals do what they always do in October....overachieve.  Thankfully, they are about to get stuffed by the much better team.  This will be a really good WS matchup regardless of who comes out of the AL. 
    • Eh, I don't really buy that in this case.  Liberatore is a lefty, has better mechanics, and more projection remaining, so I think there is a fair case for Liberatore then and now. It's really close though, Rodriguez is the better pitch at the moment, but no one really cares who is the better pitcher at 19 in low A ball. 
    • The old Liberatore vs Rodriguez debate. I think most “experts” will always try and rank Liberatore slightly higher than Rodriguez because they all criticized the O’s for “reaching” for Rodriguez. 
    • Someone pointed out before that Vaughn got pitched around his last year in NCAA. Let’s see what happens to Torkelson when/if he gets that treatment.  I don’t see how we could draft Torkelson.  Even if we trade Mancini, Mountcastle is still likely a 1B.  When team building I don’t think you pencil in your future 1B and DH spots first.   I’d like to see us draft a bat, but if the best SP is available then I’m open to that. I think that bats are safer picks and would help the system more.  Hopefully Detroit makes a mistake at 1:1 and we get the player Elias thinks is #1 overall. Lots of baseball to play till the draft. 
    • HOU got burned with taking Pitchers Appel and Aiken high. HOU has been grow the bats and buy the arms since then. Using their prospect bats to acquire proven SP.  I do think bats are safer picks over pitchers. Last draft we took lots of bats compared to pitchers. It could’ve been lots of factors at play, but I think it was a strategic decision.  Not having the number one pick in next years’ draft means we’ll likely be deciding on the 2nd best SP, Torkelson, or other NCAA and HS bats.    
    • I hope Buck gets the Phillies job.
