Assuming they win out, no idea how TCU gets left behind. Their schedule is as difficult as Oregon's, FSU's, and ND's, and TCU has looked better.

The unending hype train for Hackenburg is something I just don't get. He's been nothing but average his entire time at Penn State.

I'm not one to bitch, but, I'm going to right here. It's ridiculous that it took me 50 posts to find a "fuck you refs" comment. The refs have been fucking teams left and right in this tournament, and we're just another casualty.
It got comical at some points the nonsense they were calling on Michigan. The fouls we were getting penalized for apparently didn't translate on the other side of the court. As others have mentioned, you have folks on Kentucky dropping the shoulder and smashing dudes. On top of it, I don't know how many times I thought to myself - and even the other people I was watching with (who are all other B1G school fans) said "hey, that's a travel." It's horseshit that nuances like that don't get called.
Kentucky deserves to lose. They're an undisiciplined, sloppy team and hopefully the refs will let it catch up to them.
Fuck Calipari, fuck Kentucky. Assholes.

To lend a little credence to this point, I have a friend that works for a local bank currently having certain lending practices being investigated by the Department of Justice. A single complaint about discrimination brought DOJ in and they're investigating everything over a 3 or 4 year span.
This issue is surely about Gibbons. They're just doing due diligence to make sure it's not a consistent issue.

I don't think that OSU has the ability to beat MSU that bad. But, to that point, who cares if Alabama plays in the Rose Bowl??
|1 year 43 weeks ago||I didn't read the entire||
I didn't read the entire thread, so this has probably been mentioned already, but I'd rather see OSU win.
1. I hate MSU. They lose to OSU.
2. I hate the SEC, so they get left out of the NCG with an OSU win.
3. I hate OSU. They would lose to FSU in the NCG.
Perfect storm - MSU loss, no SEC in NCG, OSU loss. Lolz for all.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||I'm not sure why your last||
I'm not sure why your last negative is a huge, well, negative. Most scout teams aren't very good relative to the guys that make up the rotation -- that's why they're on the scout team.
As a team, Michigan is pretty deep.

WesternUnion is incredibly easy. I have deposited with 5Dimes twice using WU and haven't had any issues. You can even create a WU account and wire money online.
That's easier than using a credit card, in my opinion, because I don't want to fill out all the forms and provide 10 different types of ID these sites require when you pull money out. I feel a helluva lot safer using WU than sending a copy of my photo ID to Costa Rica.

Primes Philly to take Trey at 11.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||If that Philly trade (send||
If that Philly trade (send Jrue Holiday + 2014 1st rounder to New Orleans) is accurate, they're going to pick Trey.
Minnesota and Portland don't need PGs.

I don't think the Heat are far-and-away the best team in the NBA anymore. I mean, the Pacers were able to outplay them for most of that series.

Sounds like someone's trying to take advantage of the situation:

|2 years 19 weeks ago||They still have Andrew||
They still have Andrew Hendrix, I believe. I don't think he starts over Rees, but he probably has the one-up on Zaire for #2 on the depth chart.

Don't forget about Tyler Wideman from Lake Central - GR3's alma mater. Wouldn't be surprised to see him end up in the B1G.

St. John here.

I'm surprised he didn't get at least one more year considering all the injuries Northwestern suffered this year.

Adidas has 10 year olds stitching them, too.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||There's not really anything||
There's not really anything between ND and Indiana, but there surely is between Indiana and Purdue.
Purdue fans have developed the same "little brother" syndrome as MSU fans - they're more concerned with how IU does than their own team. To them, an IU loss is more important than a Purdue win; especially recently with IU being pretty good.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Two things: 1. Is it really||
1. Is it really the responsibility of the NCAA or NBA to protect these kids from themselves?
2. If so, the current one-and-done model doesn't achieve that. One year of college is about as useless as no college at all. Why not require players to stay for an extended period of time before jumping to the NBA?
|2 years 34 weeks ago||I said the same thing several||
I said the same thing several times during the game. Stauskas got by Hulls often, but really only finished once (I think) when he dunked it.
The other times he just got up awkward shots.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||I think this was discussed in||
I think this was discussed in the game recap, but those putbacks are just as much the fault of the on-ball defender as McGary - if they didn't get beat to the basket, McGary wouldn't have to come over and help. Generally speaking, your choices are: Oladipo throwing a dunk down or getting a routine lay-in, or forcing a tough shot and hoping someone can block out on the backside.
It's a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't situation.

U.S. goes one and two in 100 back. Grevers gold, Thoman silver.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||I guess it depends on what||
I guess it depends on what you consider "exciting," but the women's volleyball games often have more rallies because, well, they're not as good as the men.
There's been quite a few plays so far in just the fourth set that were bad passes that made it over, whiffed blocks, or poor defensive placement.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||Oh, boy. Homeland. I||
Oh, boy. Homeland. I definitely forgot about that. It's a bit over-the-top at points, but, if you enjoyed something like 24, you'll like Homeland. It's good stuff.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||I'm only about halfway||
I'm only about halfway through Louie's second season and I've only found it to be moderate+. It's funny and clever, but not that funny and clever.
But, to answer the question, Breaking Bad and Walking Dead are tops on my list, followed by The League and, later, Dexter. Both of those latter two seem to be kinda going downhill. Same for The Office - it's gotten pretty bad, but, since it's nearing the end, I feel compelled to finish it out.
Any suggestions for some new shows? I've always heard good things about Sons of Anarchy and Game of Thrones. And it sounds like Girls and Shameless could be worth a look.

Or what will turn Tyrus Thomas into, potentially, the top pick overall in 2016.

Did anyone else see the ref high-five Erik Spoelstra as he ran by?
|3 years 38 weeks ago||Ah. Fair enough. Thanks for||
Ah. Fair enough. Thanks for the information, guys.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||That's what I was getting at||
That's what I was getting at - that Tom is a likely source of that information.
