"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

Is it time to resurrect the "MSU recruits intergalactically" meme???
|4 weeks 4 days ago||options exist in the distribution||
While no team is going to put up 100 3's per game, a sound offensive philosophy will skew towards getting as many high efficiency shots as possible. On every offensive possession, a team will have multiple opportunites to take a shot. Teams run their offense unitl they get a shot that they're happy with and take their chances with it.
Anyone will take a layup given the opportunity. An open 3 for a solid shooter is something most teams will live with in their distribution. Long 2's should fit into the "only if we can't get anything else" category. The higher percentage of quality looks, the better off you're going to be.

not saying Rip was incredibly inefficient, but "definition of efficiency" is probably overstating it a bit...
|4 weeks 5 days ago||true||
They matter, but guys like LaMarcus Aldridge are the exceptions that prove the rule. Very few players at any level can hit that shot with enough consistency to make it efficient. Even Aldridge has started spotting up from three more often in the last few years of his career.

Because mid-range two pointers are all the rage now?
I'd rather see him use his size at the hoop like he did against Duke a few years ago and knock down shots from beyond the arc.
RIp was fun to watch, but his game wasn't really all that efficient.

Highly recommend going to the breweries for St. Arnold, Karback, and 8th Wonder. The former two have really good food, and all three have different variants and beers they're experimenting with available at the brewery. Buffalo Bayou could be worth a visit as well, but I've never been...
|10 weeks 2 days ago||actually||
I want one regardless of the result.

I want a maize and blue TUN shirt if we knock them out of the playoffs this year.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Houston||
These guys have been at it for a while and crank out several good beers.
Endeavour Double IPA is great.
Their Divine Reserve and Bishop's Barrel series are always really good, but hard to find.
Searching for stores that still have Pumpkinator every October is a kind of tradition among beer loving folk in Houston...once it hits the shelves, it's gone.
This is the new'ish craft brewery in town. Lots of good offerings like Hopadillo, Weisse Versa, and Hellfighter among others.
Buffalo Bayou and 8th Wonder also have some pretty strong offerings.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Versus last year...||
Last night, Ruddock was not "certainly better than anything we saw last year." He wasn't terrible, but he had his fair share of mistakes. You speak of not feeling impending doom, but the guy threw three interceptions including the pick six that sealed the game. He also missed several wide open passes downfield. Completing one of those previously swings the game our way. Devin had some rough outings last season, but let's not pretend like last night's QB performance was far and away better than what we saw last year.

These plays no longer feature inept blocking. They were actually some of our most effective plays last night.

By these standards, the guy who invented the pet rock is super talented...I mean, he made a million dollars...

Hopefully, Mr. Manuel will make an excellent Warden of the North.

please show me when this has been true. he's a guy that nobody wants on their team. he makes Nick Young look like John Stockton.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||context||
In most cases, I agree, but look at this one in particular. It's not like he decommitted to take a visit to Stanford. Syracuse has made lots of news recently and not for oncourt heroics. In this case, calling things fishy is probably warranted.

SEC honks should be very careful about labeling things as "shady as hell" when it comes to recruiting...

F Jaylen Brown
Then lots of quality depth coming off the bench. With or without Brown, 2015/2016 is going to be a very fun season.
