- First half McGary got undercut on a rebound...no foul. Hancock's potential 4th foul was an undercut...no foul (you could include the 'over Burke's back rebound here, also not a foul even though it was kind of the opposite)
- Burke, clean block - foul; on the Hancock undercut, clean block up top - foul (no, this wasn't Dieng. They got the right guy if they ruled the block a foul)
- Pump fakes without a real basketball move to draw contact - foul both times. With a real basketball move ( GR3) - also a foul
- Arm bars for the first 40 feet someone dribbled - never a foul. In the 41st foot - ~3 fouls called. (I'm sure UL was upset at some of these)

Elvis for his performance. Denard for his smile.
|4 days 17 hours ago||Rented for 6 years||
Like others, had to move while prices were down Now we have rented it out for 6 years. We have a friend who does a couple of hours of stand-in for us every few years (stopping by the house, meeting a contractor etc). Other than that, we haven't had a need for a leasing company. We have handled repairs over the phone ( ie. call Home Depot home delivery to arrange a water heater installation). Rent paid over PayPal.

and....what was I saying?
|6 days 21 hours ago||Thanks for the tip||
Having a dinner get together tonight. I always like to have a 'drink of the night' to put into people's hands when they arrive. All whiskey drinks tonight. ( even though I pretty much hate all whiskey drinks).
|1 week 5 days ago||Sanctions||
Just goes to show you have useless a 3-scholarship for each of 3 years penalty is. UM will be under the OSU limit again this year (not counting the bonus walk-on scholarships that will be given out)
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Retaining Home vs Away||
Without switching years of your home and away, you are limited to the same half of the other conference. The top of that half will continue to play each other, see MSU vs UNC
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||Hard to believe||
But it seems like they have won more than 16 of the past 29. In my mind I can only remember a couple of the 'off' years.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Defense day||
I remember mine well. A most satisfying day.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I did this once too||
I checked MSU's preseason rank vs. seed vs. tourney run over the past several years. If I remember right, the pre-season rank correlated with their tournament result FAR more than their seed.

For those of you who said 'Carlton may be the better player, but Burke it the more important recruit in this class', You were half more right and half more wrong than you could ever have guessed!

They were kind of consistent:
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Wished we had the great finish||
It was a great game of back and forth. UL was one play away from opening a real lead for about 6 minutes from 11:00 remaining to 5:00 remaining, with every time UM made a play to cut it to 2 or 3.
With 5:00 to go UL was up 3 going in for the momentum building score when Burke made the block. ...players make plays.... Without that call, the back and forth continues down the stretch. With the call, UL got some momentum, made a number of good plays, and made it a desperate comeback finish instead of what that game deserved.
(additional boo, if they called the over the back with 0:50 to go, Burke could have made 2 FTs to cut it to a 2 point game. Woooo, that too could have made for a great finish!)
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Watched it again today||
Mostly just the 2nd half. And, with the benefit of soberness and a day of perspective, and rewind/slo-mo, the officiating in the 2nd half was just as bad, if not worse, than it seemed at full speed last night.
'For every UL foul that should have been, I think there was one on us that should have been called' - Nope. It's a style thing and a ref thing. Style-wise, they clutch, grab, and challenge everything. I'll agree with you, that the officials chose to let that go, and that is ok. Every game has its own rules, if you will. But the obvious missed calls really were about 10-2 against us.
The only one I will 'defend' the refs on, was Hancock's non-4th foul. Yes, they got the wrong guy, but they didn't give it to a player away from the play. They gave it to the guy who made the clean block. The announcers got it wrong; Dieng was up at the foul line contesting the pass. Missed call, but not terrible. They often won't call a foul on a guy laying on the floor.

But I will be lamenting Trey's block call. Players make plays down the stretch. That was an amazing play. But the call and the subsequent UM miss, led it to being a comeback situation, instead of the heavyweight 12th round spectacular that this game deserved.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||In October||
I thought those of us predicting a F4 run were crazy. That has made the past 2 weekends that much more fun.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Great to good||
The game was punch- counter punch all game, until this counterpunch was taken away.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I love selected stats||
This is a good one!!
|6 weeks 4 days ago||True dat.||
|6 weeks 4 days ago||If...||
They call it like that again , it won't be good

The all-80's final four. Even WSt had a good team for a year or two back then
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Dumbest analysis?||
"Indiana had small guards, this is completely different". --while UM had Burke and Spike in the game

Flagrant 1? Didn't get a great look but looked like a shot to the face
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Worried about a jinx||
Maybe those of us worried about Brian jinxing us with that Louisville preview didn't understand the rules of the jinx ?
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Anywhere||
Lagassi Stadium looked cool but a) you need reservations and b) they had a $50 minimum per person ( and we had just eaten).

I have to switch over to the tennis channel to watch the end of this?!
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Jogging pick||
By craft to open that up.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Pg shooting||
Craft and Scott have combined for 11 shots, almost all of them jumpers. That is a bad recipe for OSU. At least Thompson hasn't taken a shot.
