The ownership group that bought the team in 2005 have no interest in keeping it here. They've been trying to facilitate a move to San Jose for years.

Thanks for posting this. I'd kinda assumed as an organ/blood donor, I'd be on registries for this kind of thing as well. I'm on it now at least.

Keep in mind Arsenal's top goal scorer, Olivier Giroud, is serving a 3-game ban after getting red against Fulham last weekend. I'd like to think the Gunners would win regardless against Wigan, QPR, and Newcastle (all bottom 5 clubs), but I could see Spurs overtaking us if we don't win all three.
As for today, I'll say 2-1 to the home side. Bayern has been unreal good this season. Someone feel free to correct me on this, but I think the only match they've lost this calendar year is 0-2 to the Arsenal in the second leg of a tie they were up 3-1 in.

Teams are shooting greater than 50% inside the arc against us in the tournament. Kansas scored 60 points in the paint, many of which were not/poorly contested. Our D has been bad.

Contesting KU's layups would be a good start.

Missouri continuing the trend of terrible postseason play from the SEC.. why, oh why, did I pick a team from this awful conference in the Final Four? That damn Florida pick is going to just ruin my bracket.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Classic blunder..||
Never go against Brad Stevens when the NCAA tournament is on the line!

We've seen this story before. The NCAA will probably "investigate" the 'Cuse for a few months, then slam some more penalties on Saint Mary's.

Hey! Said SF Giants LF never tested positive!

|2 years 18 weeks ago||Yeah||
Yeah. Florida lost to both Kentucky and Tennessee within the last 25 days. Who just lost as heavy favorites to mid-majors. I know the transitive property doesn't always apply in sports, but wow, that doesn't inspire confidence.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Gotta be kinda dissapointing||
Gotta be kinda dissapointing for the conference when two of your four best teams go out in the first round of the NIT. Florida's (I picked them) potential Final Four run is the only thing keeping the SEC from being a total non factor in college basketball this year.
It'd be nicer to see this happen in football, but I'll take what I can get.

Oregon is legitimately good. I'm no expert, but I did watch ~800 hours of Pac10 basketball this season, and the team they're fielding now looks about as good as the team that was ranked #10 in the country in January. Most of that ranking was built on crushing the softest non-conference schedule in the tourney, but they still have quality wins against Arizona, UNLV, and UCLA (x2). I feel like they're a Sweet 16 team.
Feel free to throw your life savings in against Cal though. The UNLV team they're playing now is leagues better than the one that beat them on a buzzer beater in December. Also, we just lost consecutive games to Stanford and Utah. Not exactly coming in hot..
