Do you think slave owners would have prolonged slavery just a bit longer if they had called it amateurism?
What in thee hell was their purpose for doing this?

No, it's sad the guys we already have aren't panning out (which creates the yearning for transer/other players).
Okay, that was a premature thing to say and not really fair. However, this Fall will tell a lot; hopefully last season was a fluke and was just timed too well with too much youth.

Fleury with a couple good minute...looking "cooler".
|3 days 12 hours ago||I kept waiting for the||
I kept waiting for the broadcast guys to opine on the play and nothing came. I'm used to basketball still where loads of comments and opinions would have have been stated.
|3 days 13 hours ago||Yea, they should have cheered||
Yea, they should have cheered the penalty called on their team...such hooligans.
|3 days 13 hours ago||Pens fan here also. Sorry||
Pens fan here also. Sorry peeps. I love the Sidney hatorade talk out everybody not a Pens fan.

The Americans is fuggin' slick as shit. Great show. (I know I know, everyone is different, different tastes, takes on things)

Paraphrasing, but I've always loved this scene...
-"What'd ya bring there Norm?"
-"I got us some ARRrby's"
|1 week 1 day ago||I was thinking the same thing||
I was thinking the same thing earlier this season in RE: to making the TV timeouts at the 15, 10, and 5 minute marks, instead of every 4. I'm sure they would cram another minute to minute-thrity of commercials into each timeout but it'd almost be worth it to get more gameplay/flow and to actually rid of one of the timeouts.
|1 week 1 day ago||Any reasons for the lane||
Any reasons for the lane widening?
Liveball timeouts being elimitated would be great. Or maybe they could just enforce some of the timeout rules e.g. I saw multiple times in the Tournament, maybe even against us, where a player was falling out of bounds with the ball and a timeout was awarded to them. That is NOT supposed to be allowed anymore. But eliminating Timeouts while the 10 second rule is in play, at the very least, would be a good rule change (or tweaking that rule, where if a timeout is called while still in the backcourt, the 10 second clock is still in play once play resumes, and once the shot clock hits 25, boom, turnover).

Yea, I noticed that as well. Maybe not the best examples of Lewan struggling.

On the flip side, just another reason to have been be irked if Kentucky would have won, in regards to their piss-poor FT shooting.

But...but he's questionably one of the best coaches in the country according to media people...

Yay. I win $80 fucking dollars. I'm so happy....

Make these dude.
|1 week 5 days ago||Fuck Kentucky. I wad||
I wad expecting an And-1 bullshit call on that last possession and I'm glad Gifey didn't give a reason to call a foul and Randle missed a short one. It's still far from over, unfortunately.
|1 week 6 days ago||What's scary about that is if||
What's scary about that is if Mitch does return and Walton and Caris both make the strides to become even better players, in regards to offense, that actually could/would help open things up in ways, even more for Nik.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||A 7 - 8 seed National Title||
A 7 - 8 seed National Title game. Wow. I can't believe there's a couple assholes out there on ESPN who have this bracket picked as such.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Captain obvious here but this||
Captain obvious here but this Kentucky brand of basketball is so fucked. I get them out athlete-ing people at times, the Decker pwnage a good example of just being better, but the shit they do and get away with is contradictory to what the game is about.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Oh my fucking||
Oh my fucking god...Randle-dozer draws yet another foul plowing into the lane.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Frank drawing a couple fouls||
Frank drawing a couple fouls here, surprised to see them called.
Jackson And-1 to cap the possession off!
|2 weeks 13 hours ago||Man. Who in hell could have||
Man. Who in hell could have predicted UConn to the Final. Crazy to me.
Not sure what to think of this next game. I haven't thought about Basketball much this week other than "What ifs" so I haven't contemplated who I've got winning this one. But now that I have a bit, I just can't see Wisconsin losing this one. Unless they play flat out terrible and get outplayed by the talent in blue and white, I just can't see them not advancing.
|2 weeks 15 hours ago||Florida had a chance to do yo||
Florida had a chance to do to UConn what we did to them last year but they didn't. Sure enough, UConn is now alive and within 1 point. Wow.
|2 weeks 15 hours ago||I'm still hungover in||
I'm still hungover in emotions or something from last weekend. I'll watch the later game, I think, and maybe the end of this first one. I'm just sad.
Fuckin' A, we should still be playing.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||ClearEyes...I had a spare||
ClearEyes...I had a spare five, yes five whole minutes most around here didn't/don't have, so I guess appreciate the effort and I apparently don't need to look into "WHAT WAS THE REEEAAASON YOU HAD FOR WRITING THIS!!!???". It was an interesting read regardless of the intention and/or original purpose.
And if I didn't have the time I wouldn't bitch about it....and naturally, now I'm an asshole for mentioning that last bit (I gdo understand some of you are just giving him shit with the tl;dr nonesense)

You have to share now!
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I'm with you, more so in||
I'm with you, more so in regards to your first paragraph/sentences. I won't go into detail TOO much but a couple of your lines are where I'm at in. This shit sucks. It sucks so much that I have a hard time rationalizing why I feel this way. It's fandom, sure, but it's more than that; at least it seems like it. This emotional investment I, this nobody from the Midwest not even in Michigan, have for these young groups of hardwood and gridiron players isn't sensible and has to be something more than just "being a fan". What, I'm not sure anymore. If I made money off of my fandom by blogging or gambling, something, it would/could seem more reasonable (I know that's an unfair statement in a way, in and I don't mean anything offensive by that as I'm sure that can come across in ways I really don't even know right now).
I still digressed...more than I wanted. But I'm at a juncture in life where this is wearing on me too much and I'm not settled in or in a secure enough spot for this to drain me and take up so much of my life. And to relate to more of your post, all of the above holds true especially when we start factoring in how all of these games are officiated and supervised (i.e. the NCAA and the shitty rules, the money and greed) by such half-assed people/organizations. I'm sure this comes across bitch-like, I'm aware some of you are hardened badasses.

Morgan should have played more.
Good damn game, though, I guess.
