Peppers at 10, which seems low.

|3 weeks 3 days ago||They must have been pretty fun to watch||
I imagine layup lines were quite a show.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I played on a team that was pretty stacked||
1 guy went on to be a 4 year starter at Bucknell, two time captain, multiple entries in their record books (3rd all time steals, on the all time scoring list, all time 3's made, etc.)
1 guy started at Princeton for four years back when Princeton was Pete Carril awesome
1 guy was Harvard's starting PG by Freshman year
1 guy starred at D2 St Anselm and was 2nd team all conference there
1 guy went D3
We were ranked top 10 in all of NYC - but with that said, I can't even imagine what these teams they assemble these days are like. We beat some teams with guys who went high D1 - the best of these players was Danya Abrams (3 time first team all Big East). But going against one of these current super teams - we never saw anything like that.
I'm excited to see Poole on this team - I think it will be great to see him play with more guys who are at his level and will help him learn what it's like to not have to do everything so much on his own. I'm pretty pumped about this - just hope the coaching is great and not a "play a bunch of stars and just roll out the ball" style of coaching.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Many thanks||
not sure why the idea of a "this is the story of the class so far and how we got here" is controversial for some - this is very helpful.
I'm starting a new business, so no one is paying me to read mgoblog at my desk. I like to follow the ups and downs of recruiting, but this year I haven't been able to.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks||
I'm a little more focused on the historical of how we got here and I'm guessing that's more a snapshot in time, but I will check it out.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, just a little hard to see who we really wanted||
and didn't get, since "offers" is kind of sketchy - I guess "taken visits" might be the way to filter for that.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks||
that's a very helpful start.
We never had much of a chance at Wyatt Davis, right (just looking at the crystal ball timeline thing I just googled)?
OSU kind of made a late move to land Martell it looks like.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I'd certainly love to know||
biggest wins (not just by star rankings, but ones where everyone was waiting in suspense and we won) and also which guys we thought we had a chance with that we lost out on.
And maybe even some guys that the board looked longingly at, but who never gave us the time of day.
Is that really that amorphous?
An inventory of wins and losses, pared down to the most notable on that list.
Because even if you just looked at all the Hello posts, you would have no idea who we painfully missed on.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||CARIS WENT IN THE FIRST!!!!!!!||
So happy. Thank goodness. I felt sick that his luck was going to keep him out of the first round.
I hung out with his mom and his aunt at a game - such nice people. I am so relieved Caris got into the first round - this is a great family that deserved this!
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly||
and no one had the punishing running attack changes the entire game down like the Giants of that era.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah, if you want to go there||
MUCH more like Giants vs. Bills.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||But you're a Michigan/Cleveland fan||
we just can't believe those people go around unhappy over sports. You, you I can believe being unhappy.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Come on, this dude is right||
the crossover is enormous.
Otherwise, I would have totally been for Lebron here. I wish I could wish it away, but I can't.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||This was the worst of all worlds||
Draymond was terrific and Lebron got it done.
But that was just an amazing performance. Got to give respect.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||I dreaded the day to come||
when I learned she was not coming here.
I just knew this shit was coming.
OSU would have somehow kidnapped her and made sure she enrolled on campus.
Yes, I believe we win the title with her on the team.
I hate to say it, but I also think we might win if you replaced senior Sierra with sophomore Sierra for just the WS games. Sierra seemed to be pressing, where as sophomore (or junior) Sierra just went up expecting to and ready to kill you.
|7 weeks 23 hours ago||Yeah, that sounds about right||
the Jim Harbaugh I know is totally the kind of guy to back away from a fight.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Still feeling crushed||
literally one thing goes different at the end of the game last night and it's all different.
If Ramirez flares a single over the third baseman's head, if one more of those pitches is a ball... we had their pitcher so rattled - I went from little belief to being certain we were taking that game and not even in extras.
I was skeptical going into the WCWS, but after Game 1, I really thought we could do it.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Two hours later and I'm still flattened||
this is going to sting for a while.
So close to an epic comeback last night. They really had me believing. I thought we were even going to get that 8th run and walk away with the win.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Many thanks for the 4 great years||
and these were tremendous years. Just so hard to see it end like that.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, but with Florida gone||
you knew they had a real decent shot to beat anyone they faced.
Team seemed really low on swag today. That had a lot to do with the pitcher, but we did not seem confident.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Blanco will be a monster next year, at least||
she was as elite a prospect as it gets and for good reason
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Thought it was so impressive how they figured out the OU pitcher||
thought that meant we had so much more to look forward to.
We ran into a hot pitcher, for sure, but it's so hard to believe this is done.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||It just puts so much pressure on us even if it's successful||
and shows them the finish line with one out left.
I hate that call. Unless you have two of the best hitters ever coming up (one to be walked, the next to drive the run in).
|7 weeks 2 days ago||That was a genius pitch||
the kind of pitch you save all game for just that spot and she executed it perfectly.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||That bunt call - wtf||
I can't believe SiLo was bunting and I can believe even less that LM was bunting in the 7th.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Wish we had a rockstar SS coming in||
so we could move Abby back to 2nd.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||She was terrific, for sure||
when we loaded the bases in the 7th against OU, I thought we were going to do it.
That was the end of it all, it turns out.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Very hard to say we saw any fire from the team today||
how incredibly disappointing.
I can't fucking believe this is how it ends. I can't believe it's over.
ON A FUCKING WILD PITCH
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Been a privilege to watch Romo for 4 years||
shame she never put a great WCWS together.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Devastating||
|7 weeks 2 days ago||I cannot believe she was bunting||
just hate that we're going out like that
