Highlights: Pure Do

They accepted my request to bookend with Michigan making free throws because that's what I call a highlight. Then they ruined it by putting in ALL THE THREES by Purdue.

Losses to Georgetown and Miami last night means there could be a 1 seed on the line on Sunday, pending BTT performance.

How much effect with the BTT have with respect to the NCAA seeding?  For example, say Michigan beats Indiana this weekend but Michigan goes out early in the BTT and Indiana wins it.  Or something to that effect.  How would the seeding pan out?  Indiana shoots to a #1 and Michigan drops to a #2?

So much depends on other teams:

How do Duke and Miami play in the ACC tounrament and their last games...

How does Kansas wrap up its season- if they lose early in the conference tournament they could fall...

If Gonzaga doesn't win their tournament a one seed could be opened up...

If Georgetown wins the Big East they could jump teams...

If Michigan wins at Indiana we could earn a 1-seed- if we do well in the BTT we could be favored for one even.  If Michigan loses to Indiana I'm not sure even winning the BTT would be enough.  If we beat Indiana I think a 2 is locked up- if we lose to Indiana and lose early in the BTT a 3 is likely.

I get an ad for BP -- how they're "committed to America" and restoring the Gulf. It's narrated by a chubby guy in a construction hat.


Is that what you mean by "boner pill ad"?

What has loaded for me: "Defensive Players NFL Scouts are Talking About"


I can haz highlights?

EDIT: OK now it's better. Not sure what the dilly was

Also, in the saga of Kali Yuga catching up to the internet: Nothing says "legitimacy" like monetization. I know it's not your fault; just sayin'.

I know this is contingent on Michigan winning on Sunday, but do we have a rooting guide for Michigan to win a share of the big ten? I do not understand the intricacies of how to determine/share the championship.

I felt dirty rooting for Ohio vs Indiana. Do i need to root for....(sigh)...MSU to beat Wisconsin because we split with the other teams at the top?

Would've been way more fun had we beaten Penn State, outright conference title on the line to winner of Sunday's game Indiana or Michigan.

Still, I'll take the co-championship.  Can't believe we're back in contention (fairly serious, if I may say so) for a one-seed.

Everything really comes down to one thing:  beat Indiana.

Perspective is interesting.  I didnt see any of last night's game (was at Sushi-making class with wife) and only followed the last minute on my phone.  So this morning I was pretty happy that we won and am definitely looking forward to Sunday.

My brother, on the other hand, watched it and is pissed.  Thinks we again played down to the competition and is bitching and moaning about GRIII and our inability to rebound.  I just watched the highlights and realized we got down 12 in the second half before rallying so i guess i somewhat understand why he got scared/upset.

If all you see though is the final score like i did it looks like a five point road win in a brutal conference.  And that's all 99% of the voters will see so IMO a potential #1 seed is absolutely on the line Sunday.

Great question.  I don't know actually - the class was taught at Shinto Japanese steak house here in northern Ohio and I can this - it was an absolute blast.  They paired the sushi with different saki's and it was all you can eat.

For the first time in my life I said "no more sushi".  I think i put on 15 pounts eating rice & fish but would highly, highly recommend the experience.

Important as the fish and refrigerating sushi is just bad. Whole foods has sushi grade fish but its pricey. Try to look for Asian specialty grocery stores. You could always do vegetable makis or Kani and Ebi as well to save from buying maguro. If your butchering skills are good you could purchase a whole fluke also.
