    Conference tourney "advantage"

    I got to thinking the other day. Remember when all those caazone clowns would tell everyone that the CAA tourney was rigged for VCU because of being so close to home? For those not around posting then, these folks (mostly ODU, Mason, and Drexel) would absolutely lose their minds every single...

    All things Dougie Brooks

    This is long overdue. The J.R. Smith of Ramnation. The Whoopie Goldberg of Lake Wales. The best hair since Freak On A Leash was on regular MTV rotation. The dreadlocked ponytail man.

    True Detective

    Are there shows out there that deserve their own thread? Yup. I know a couple of you mentioned TD in passing in a couple of threads. I finally got around to it and binge watched all 8 episodes over the weekend. Wow, what an amazing show. So many themes it could be turned into a college film...

    Beware A-10 network charge

    Sorry to start any thread with my nonsense, let alone one during the tourney, but it may save some folks a few bucks..... I just saw on my credit card that the A-10 network charged me again for another four months starting in March. I had no idea it even went on after hoops. In looking at fine...

    movies

    argo = very good. silver linings playbook = overrated. well acted, but overrated. from the cheesy tailgate fight scene until the end, it just got absurdly silly. the first 1/3 was good though. so do they just nominate every decent movie that comes out for best picture now? blah.

    all-america team

    is this the weakest preseason all-america team in a while? don't get me wrong, i think it's great to see a couple mid-major guys on there, but still. ok, so zeller, mcdermott, and thomas are all fairly obvious choices. canaan from murray st. and mccollum from lehigh round it out. (i think the...

    RGIII and the Skins

    only one game, but man was this guy impressive in one of the toughest stadiums in the nfl. strong arm, accurate passes, and great slashing ability when needed. i just hope that he realizes what michael vick never has, that nfl linebackers hit very hard. don't be a running qb until you have to...

    Orioles Magic

    i'm done with the nats thread. very happy for those guys as well, but i've been waiting 14 long years for my orioles to have a winning season. they're now in first place (for now). i've watched lots and lots and lots AND LOTS of losing baseball since the o's last fielded a winning team my senior...

    jerry dipoto for GM?

    looks like dipoto is interviewing with both the angels and orioles. while i personally don't think he will land either gig, it's great to see him doing so well in the front office. if he doesn't get a GM position this year, he has set himself up very well for a future position within the next...

    adjustments for tonight?

    biggest game of the year tonight and there isn't much talk about the actual game itself. so here goes. it seems that vcu and smart made some necessary adjustments for mason and learned a lot from the earlier blowout loss. the guys played better defense and were calm, cool, and collected out...
