O's are Legends

It’s time! Upsets, live look in, news, it’s March Madness! (In game, pre & post game)

Recommended Posts

That has been one ugly game but when you’re betting the under; usually a very good thing.:D

Northern Iowa up by 7 at half!

Its good because of that....but as a Duke fan, I really hate how this game is playing out right now...Advantage is clearly on the Purdue side.

How about a Kentucky-Tennessee final, that wouldn't piss off anyone about the state of NCAA basketball now, would it? Calipari (enough said) vs. a team that had four guys arrested for possessing guns, marijuana, and open alcohol containers in a speeding car.*

*To be fair, there's something to be said for second chances and there are also plenty of things to like about the way the Vols play basketball. That said, this incident happened only three months ago so it's going to be on a lot of people's minds.

I don't agree...Pearl kicked his best player off the team after that. I think that is a great story and shows Pearl to be a guy that has a lot of integrity.

Oh please! The guy I work with went to Baylor and I have seen a lot of big 12 basketball this year because of it. I had a strong feeling about that one. Didn't think it was going to be a huge blowout, but my bracket will take it!

Yeah I was pretty sure Baylor wasn't gonna lose that one (of course I was sure Georgetown wouldn't lose to Ohio either :scratchchinhmm:). Baylor was just too deep down low to let Samhan have his way. And after seeing Dunn make literally any shot he took in 2 of the last 3 games against KSU, I was sure he would come to play. But definitely didn't think it would be a blowout like that.

I was suprised to see St Mary's shoot so poorly.

If they are shooting well, it loosens things up for Samhan...If they aren't, you can collapse more on him and it really starts to be a struggle.

Well, I wouldn't say anyone... :D

Tennessee is definitely a good story though. I really thought they would crash after losing those guys, but I think they are better after that.

Definitely surprised at their shooting as well. At the beginning you think it's just jitters, but nothing would fall for them.

If you're shooting well from outside, it definitely opens things up inside, and vice versa. And if either one struggles, the other can start to force shots up.

Why are we watching the eleven-point game with 4:30 left and not the four-point game with :30 left?

CBS is terrible.

They did this with the NIU/Kansas game too.

MSU looks like they will be advancing. Tennessee will cause them troubles but I expect yet another final 4 appearance for Izzo...What a great coach.

Well right now I'm watching them try to correct a clock problem in said four-point game, so you decide which is best. ;)

But yeah, sometimes their coverage is.....interesting, to say the least.

Oh no. They did NOT just switch back to the Duke/Purdue game right as the UNI guy was about to shoot his free throws.

I wish a West Virginia/Butler championship game on CBS! :cussing:

    • I'm curious how you mean that.  Do you mean folks like Moluntcastle and Diaz and are you talking going all out and bringing up Hall, Rodriguez and Adley?
    • To be fair, they are artificially the worst team.  If they let the best 26 play, they would win more games.
    • And you and yours as well!
    • I would prefer they play a normal 10th  or 11th. Then go to the new rule. For those of you who are diehard fans, I suppose this change is blasphemy, but other sports have changed their rules and it makes it more exciting. 4 on 4 hockey is more exciting than 5 on 5. Shoot outs are exciting. I don't like 4 hour games. I imagine players and managers hate long games. Your observation is like a kid seeing a food and says he doesn't like it before he tastes it. This is the non-season to try it, basically a 60 game exhibition schedule, where all stats are basically meaningless. Even the eventual WS winner have an asterisk. It will nice to see them play. In fact the O's may benefit more than normal...give the kids a chance and long look.
    • The 30 year treasury was around 6% in Feb. 2000, so we can consider that the risk free rate. It looks like high quality long term corporate bonds were around 8%, that’s probably more comparable. So this was probably pretty close to a fair deal. 
    • You’re going to eat those words.    
    • Is it wrong to make a choice that will work out in your favor 99% of the time, and there's no way to tell if this particular choice is the 1%? At 33: Carlos Delgado had a 161 OPS+.  Over his last four years of his career he was worth 4.8 wins. Jack Clark had a 148 OPS+.  Three years later he was done. Derrek Lee had a 146 OPS+.  Two years later he was an Oriole... and done. Pedro Guerrero had a 145 OPS+.  The next season would be his last with average batting numbers. Aubrey Huff had a 142 OPS+.  He never had a 100 again. Lance Berkman had a 140 OPS+. He'd have two more pretty good seasons. John Olerud had a 140 OPS+.  After that he played 214 games with a 98 OPS+. Jeff Bagwell had a 140 OPS+.  He actually had three more good years before falling off and retiring. Mike Easler had a 140 OPS+.  He had one more .800 OPS season. Cecil Cooper had a 138 OPS+.  He had one more season where he was an average or better hitter. Don Baylor had a 138 OPS+ (actually at 34).  He had one more season with an .800 OPS. George Hendrick had a 138 OPS+.  He had one more part-time season with an .800 OPS. Andre Thornton had a 123.  He's have one more good year. Adrian Gonzalez had a 130 OPS+.  Since then he's gone .784, .642, .672. Dmitri Young had a 129 OPS+.  The next year would be his last. Then you have Nelson Cruz and David Ortiz at 137.  Cruz has a .928 OPS and been worth 21 wins since leaving Baltimore.  And Ortiz had perhaps the best late career hitting and phone smashing record of all time. Also, remember Cruz was born July 1st, on the cutoff date, so if he'd been born 12 hours later his walk year with the O's would have been his age 34 season, so we'd be comparing him to these guys a year later and a year worse.
