What was the helicopter thing? I must have missed it.
|1 hour 14 min ago||What is the situation with||
What is the situation with GT? Do they have a significant following, or are they sort of like Northwestern where they're outnumbered everywhere?

Well, it's an uphill battle with kids who like UGA.

Very happy to have him back in the fold. He's done strong work wherever he's been.

Yes, even though we had fewer Sweet 16 appearances that decade than in the 2010s (which aren't over).
|22 hours 27 min ago||Kentucky made a game-tying 3||
Kentucky made a game-tying 3 with something like 7 seconds left, but then UNC rushed upcourt and drilled an 18-footer.
|22 hours 30 min ago||It's actually relatively easy||
It's actually relatively easy for athletes to get admitted to Ivy schools (compared to non-athletes, anyway). I'm surprised more decent talents don't take them up on the offer.

It used to be 15. It was reduced to 13 about 20 years ago, presumably for Title IX compliance reasons.

This isn't a very fair interpretation. If someone threatens to kill me, am I really "making the news"?
I also didn't think officiating played all that large of a role in that game. The FT difference is essentially due to the deliberate fouls Kentucky committed at the end. Kentucky lost primarily because they had several bad possessions in a row down the stretch that cost them the lead. And then they gave up that last shot.

5 Key Plays is especially cool.

Izzo may need a deep bench because his teams foul more than ours do. Beyond that, I'm not sure if it makes a difference in the big picture. One of the benefits of a short bench is that guys aren't constantly looking over their shoulder, afraid to screw up and get benched.

Their guest (Irvin?) scoffed at that claim, so take it with a grain of salt.

I thought it was clear at the time. Walton was coming back and the Ohio Mr. Basketball (Simpson) was coming in, to be groomed as Walton's replacement. I think it was more of a case of some posters having fallen "out of love" with Beilein at the end of last season, and this was a convenient talking point.

Morris did have an excellent midrange game. He just wasn't a 3-point shooter. Agree that Simpson needs to add at least that.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Yeah, I didn't understand||
Yeah, I didn't understand that one either. Izzo seems to find a way to turn a lot of 4/5-star guys into late bloomers.

The hipster vibe is strong in this thread. (Or do hipsters still stick to PBR?)

You can drive from Wichita to Vegas in three hours? Might want to watch your speed...

Eh, 10 years from now they'll be demanding an on-campus stadium. Shared stadium arrangements never work out well for the college team.

Do you think Kansas isn't getting an "assist" right now?

Beilein on Matthews:
Let's hope he is not just channeling his inner Fred Jackson.

Hard to imagine he was unaware of the tornado when the headline of the linked story he shared mentions it.
|3 days 15 hours ago||I would be careful of||
I would be careful of assuming that any NCAA investigation proves that a program is "clean," given that the NCAA can't compel people to testify. "Failed to prove the program was dirty" is a more precise interpretation.

Just glanced at the stats. The two teams have combined to grab 52 rebounds in 24 minutes. Tells you something about their shooting prowess.

One might say it's a rather traditional event. Unlike others, too.
