I have no idea.  I'm 99% sure that's in, but no idea if any of that was legal.

Poor decision by Boka to pinch and create that goal.

Played badly and beat an SEC team by 11.

Third set is going to haunt them.  Really good match, but Texas appears to be phenomenal.  Frustrating being one of the twenty or so best programs in the country but not top ten.

Texas has six in a row, M timeout down 19-16.

M up 9-6, timeout Texas.

20-17, M timeout.  Texas has the last couple points.

Michigan up 16-12 in set three, Texas takes timeout.

Illinois, Wisconsin, and Nebraska have all advanced to the Elite Eight already.

Paige Jones jumps so high.

Big rally from Michigan late to take the second set, 29-27.

EDIT: Also the Big 12 player of the year Micaya White landed on Paige Jones' foot and twisted her ankle.  Not sure if she'll return.

First set was 25-10, Texas.  Total massacre.  Second set is 16-15 so far, Texas leading.

Texas seems, um, better than us.

I pay attention (usually one of the main posters in the hockey threads), wish I could watch more.  Went to the game the night after Thanksgiving.

12/05/2018 - 7:17pm And even though he's not…

And even though he's not declared, DPJ doesn't make it a secret his plan if football doesn't work out is med school.

12/04/2018 - 11:20pm Davis looks like Teske did…

Davis looks like Teske did in his first time two years ago.  Works hard on defense, fouls a ton, basically lost on offense.  Bigs take a while.  He's had maybe 40 or 50 minutes of meaningful game action total.  Not giving up on him.  Short term though, we need a solution if Teske gets fouls because of the Big Ten road whistle.  Particularly worrisome at Breslin, where Matthews, Simpson, and Teske will have two each by the under 8.

12/04/2018 - 11:07pm Won despite a shit half and…

Won despite a shit half and the infamous Big Ten road whistle.  Obvious worry is that teams replicate the sag off Z and dare him to shoot strategy.

12/01/2018 - 11:00pm Or OSU's tackles played out…

Or OSU's tackles played out of their god damn minds for one week combined with Chase's injury.  I'm pretty sure the assumption was we would win that matchup, because logically we should have.  And then Haskins struggles when he's pressured and everything is different.

I have no answer for the second half though.

12/01/2018 - 10:50pm He dropped like 5 in a row…

He dropped like 5 in a row inside the 5 against MSU creating a bunch of points.

12/01/2018 - 10:48pm BYU swept Utah.  They're the…

BYU swept Utah.  They're the #4 overall seed, so I believe will host next weekend's games.  They play unseeded Florida.  We get #5 overall Texas.

12/01/2018 - 10:44pm The whiners here watched a…

The whiners here watched a totally different game than I did last week.  Offensive gameplan wasn't brilliant, but it got us a LOT of plays to be made.  Lot of drops and poor throws killed those plays.

Lack of defensive adjustments is totally fair game though.

12/01/2018 - 10:38pm We're going to an NY6 game. …

We're going to an NY6 game.  Worst case, UCF jumps us and we're 8th.

12/01/2018 - 10:35pm Because OSU's tackles turned…

Because OSU's tackles turned back into pumpkins.  Last week the tackles were the mid major who can't miss against a 3 seed and then get blown out against the 6.

12/01/2018 - 10:34pm He's down.

He's down.

12/01/2018 - 10:21pm The Big 10 is garbage though…

The Big 10 is garbage though.  PSU sucks, MSU sucks, the entire West was garbage.

12/01/2018 - 10:17pm Big 12 was better than the…

Big 12 was better than the Big 10.

12/01/2018 - 10:01pm Because pre-season stuff is…

Because pre-season stuff is still included so you don't get madness like #1 OSU.  Which also explains why Gonzaga is behind Duke despite one of the 7 samples on both those teams being a Gonzaga win on a neutral floor.

12/01/2018 - 9:58pm I think it's because for…

I think it's because for sports that aren't basketball, they try to limit travel costs and put teams together geographically rather than by a 64 seed order.

Sites are NOT friendly this year.

Columbus, Ohio
Des Moines, Iowa

Tulsa, Oklahoma

Hartford, Connecticut

Columbia, South Carolina

Jacksonville, Florida

Salt Lake City, Utah

San Jose, California

Regionals:

Midwest is in Kansas City

South is in Louisville

East is in DC

West is in Anaheim

 

Honestly we probably want the South or East region, and none of those first weekend sites are friendly.  All the M grads in the Northeast might make Hartford the most friendly?

12/01/2018 - 9:42pm Yeah, without pressure,…

Yeah, without pressure, Haskins is gonna kill you regardless of your scheme.  That was the problem last week.

12/01/2018 - 9:40pm Texas next.  I think either…

Texas next.  I think either in Austin or Provo, depending on the results of BYU/Utah tonight.

12/01/2018 - 9:36pm Volleyball dominates the…

Volleyball dominates the fifth set, advances to the Sweet Sixteen.  7th time in 13 years.  I think only one Final Four out of those.  Michigan gets Texas next.

12/01/2018 - 9:12pm Volleyball drops the fourth…

Volleyball drops the fourth set.  Going to five.

12/01/2018 - 8:37pm Volleyball wins set three,…

Volleyball wins set three, up 2-1 on Pitt.  Sweet Sixteen bid on the line.

Hey the thing that hurt Winovich is illegal this week.

12/01/2018 - 8:25pm Because changing your entire…

Because changing your entire defensive approach in a week is a great idea.

Great play by Haskins, but I'm annoyed that OSU's tackles seem to have turned back into pumpkins this week.

12/01/2018 - 8:17pm Yes.  It's Alabama/Oklahoma…

Yes.  It's Alabama/Oklahoma and ND/Clemson, unless Clemson loses.  In that case it's probably OSU.  If OSU and Clemson loses, who fucking knows.  I'd put UCF in.

12/01/2018 - 8:16pm Clemson scores on the first…

Clemson scores on the first play.

12/01/2018 - 8:09pm Volleyball tied at a set…

Volleyball tied at a set apiece in the NCAA Tournament second round.

12/01/2018 - 5:49pm There are going to be nights…

There are going to be nights we can't make a shot... but it might not matter with this defense.

12/01/2018 - 5:45pm Edwards needed 21 shots to…

Edwards needed 21 shots to get to 19 points.  Simpson better win DPOY in the Big Ten.

Update: That was projected lottery pick Nassir Little.

11/28/2018 - 11:40pm Man Purdue choked that away…

Man Purdue choked that away.  7/7 split overall.

Contesting everything violently with 20 seconds left.

11/28/2018 - 11:28pm Teske gets isolated on some…

Teske gets isolated on some crazy athletic UNC wing for like 15 seconds and just stones him.

11/28/2018 - 10:50pm Teske's hands really are so…

Teske's hands really are so fast for a man that size.  I think Matthews got the foul from the other side, but Teske had the deflection and probably the steal to X.

11/28/2018 - 10:23pm Can we just convince Poole…

Can we just convince Poole it is the last 5 seconds at all times?

11/28/2018 - 10:06pm If we can get Poole…

If we can get Poole unsnakebit...

11/28/2018 - 10:02pm I like Brooks a lot this…

I like Brooks a lot this year at the 2.  Not as much handling the point.  Problem is that strategy makes us super small.  Hm.
