ACC/Big 11 Challenge

Recommended Posts

Since I typed that, Singler has appeared to really be forcing things too much.

Down 6 with about 4 to play...can Duke come back and win?

FSU isn't going to come back and win at Ohio State...if the Dukies don't pull it off the Big Ten is going to finally one of these things.

And while I'll feel terrible my Cavaliers couldn't beat Penn State at home, the onus of this falls entirely on the shoulders of Clemson. A 23 point lead in the second half at home and you don't win? Rough.

Man, Dawkins' stroke looks really good. It would be HUGE for Duke if he turns into a good player this year. If he becomes a dependable shooter/scorer for them this year, they win the conference.

Gotta say I'm rooting for Duke right now.

This is weird.

By the way...

I really like Bob Knight as a color guy. Obviously knows the game really well, but I just think he is very smooth and comfortable.

And again, Singler just forces it. He really had it working earlier in the game, but just was trying too much in the second half.

Gotta wonder what would have happened if Penn State played at GT instead of crappy-ass UVA. As a graduate of an ACC school I gotta say I'm more bitter about this than I thought I'd be.

Let's not get all high and mighty Terps fans.

Indiana (with Iowa) are by far the two worst teams in the Big Ten and it isn't close.

LOL..I know..MD fans are like, we did our job!

Good for you guys! Way to beat a bad team! :D

Feels good to win the first one.

Nice win for Miami in the Barn. I've always liked Leonard Hamilton, maybe he is getting things together at FSU.

The BT has better days ahead as Michigan, Minn and IU (and hopefully Iowa) improve and perhaps more games will have the build-up of the UNC-MichSt and Duke-Wisky games and then the Challenge will live up to the original intentions.

Is it better for a middle of the pack team to lose to a "bad team"...or for a top 10 team to lose to an unranked team?

    • It would be cheaper and possibly more efficient to just buy the Rays.....
    • They will settle for no less than Rendon, Cole and Strasburg out of Cashman. Or maybe a trade for Lindor. 
    • I find Girardi annoying, but I think he was a good manager.    I think Boone has done a good job as well.    Those poor Yankee fans will have to live with 7 playoff appearances, 3 division titles and 4 ALCS appearances over the last decade.     And 27 straight winning seasons.   
    • All Roch said was, “I’d expect another catcher to join the organization, even if for depth purposes.“ I think it’s a foregone conclusion that we’ll add a catcher or two before spring training.    It doesn’t mean that whoever they acquire will slot above the players you named.    That will be sorted out in spring training.   
    • I feel like there were several seasons in the last decade where Girardi got more wins out of that team than he should have.  I can't remember which years, but there were a few.  I felt like he managed every game as if it was Game 7 of the WS, using Betances in every single medium to high leverage situation.  Even in spite of their payroll, there were a few years where the on-paper talent wasn't quite up to their normal standards....yet they still won a lot of games.  I think no matter who is managing, the Yankees will always have their fair share of players who outperform their norms simply by putting on that uniform.  This year was a little more pronounced, but we have seen other sports teams over the years have very high payrolls and still land under .500 because things just don't work out.  I think the 2012 Red Sox lost 90+ games and then won the WS the next year.  The Yankees never finish under .500, no matter what.  That is pretty impressive.
    • Everyone was a fan of Severino when he put up an 818 OPS in the first half.
    • The Surprise Saguaros clinched the AFL West title over the weekend.    It appears likely they’ll face the Salt River Rafters on Saturday for the League title.    If Kremer pitches today, he’ll be available to start the championship game, though I’m not sure he’d be chosen.
