I am a fan of Notre Dame, which is in the ACC when it comes to B-ball. And Virginia's defense was great, but if you could play defense and give theirs trouble, you had a great shot at beating them. Also Notre Dame looking to be NIT champs! (better than what Virginia did :)

I am shocked ND didn't make the Tourney. I think they got ripped off!

Virginia just doesn't have a good style of play to win anything. This isn't 1960 where you can score 50 points and win championships. If they ever hope to win anything they will need to bring their offense into this century. Great defensive team no doubt but you need to be able to score too.

@NFLfan where did you go to school? I graduated from IUPUI. Our only claim to fame is making the Tournament once lmao. We did have George Hill though who has been a Good Pro. Hill has made us proud.

 

I graduated from Binghamton, Tony Kornheiser's alma mater. It is not a big sports school. It is part of the State University of NY, which Buffalo is part of. Binghamton is often called "The Ivy of the SUNYs". haha Our school color is green... We were in the tourney only once and we lost, as expected. 

 

Are you familiar with the show King of Queens? There is an actor called Victor Williams. We were not friends but I knew him. We went to school there the same 4 years. 

 

Didn't your alma mater win a game in the tourney once? I seem to vaguely remember that.

Yeah IUPUI has actually become pretty big. We are Division 1 in Basketball. I grew up a Hoosier fan and really don't dislike Purdue now days. I am rooting for Purdue this year actually but without their big man I think they are in trouble.

I'll root for Purdue too. Who are they playing?

 

Hey, they just announced on the radio that the Jets moves up to #3

Michigan baby - At the buzzer!

Tennessee goes down!

 

Those two buzzer-beaters are reminiscent of Bryce Drew, whose highlight I put up yesterday. I love when it comes down to the end.

 

My two favorite active coaches in college BB are facing each other. I was all for Syracuse until I saw that they are playing Mich St. I respect both coaches who are committed to their teams. My brother is a Syracuse alum. Whoever wins I will be pleased. Too bad one of them had to lose.

Purdue and Butler.  I have not looked when it is.  I believe IUPUI won a game when George Hill played for them.

 

Big trade with Colts.  I am dreading some of the reactions on that one if I am on here.  Vikings sure were fun :)

Thank you.  I appreciate You saying that.  Weird not being a 'fixture' on here.  :)  

 

Game is 1210 on CBS.  I am hoping that the NCAA approves the brace Haas used in practice yesterday.

I am not too happy about losing Bridgewater. But it is time to move on.

 

Nice to see you posting again. We miss you and RadioGirl.  I would appreciate another woman on the Baseball thread. :cheer2:

 

Hope both of you are well.

That and just throwing away Keenum.  Who did they get?  Cousins?  (Bridgewater please)

 

Thank you.  I don't know if I am in the new baseball thread. I love that it is getting going.  Radiogirl got promoted in her job and barely has time to change clothes.  

 

She is well.  I have gone through the mill for just over a year.  Long story.  Bad year and a half.  Thanks again.  :)

Vikings signed Cousins :(. Bridgewater signed a one-year deal with the Jets. :Cry: I am happy that he did get signed by a team. Many were worried about his gruesome knee injury.

 

Congratulate Radiogirl on her promotion. You take care of yourself.

Yeah hopefully you have time to Post on the Baseball Thread. It was hopping last season. I still have all 4 of my teams left so far in the Tourney. I had KY/Michigan/Kansas/Purdue. I picked Kansas to win it all. Purdue is playing right now vs Butler. The Haas situation has me a bit worried.

Haas was a game time decision, but NCAA docs said no to his brace:thmdown:

 

16/11 Butler right now, Purdue airballing 3s instead of going for easy buckets:angry:

That sucks. I thought maybe Purdue was just keeping him out to rest him for next weekend just in case they do win. So is he officially out for the Tourney?

Not sure at this point, guess there could be chance to get another brace and have it approved? It sounded like he was done on Friday but that changes yesterday then again this morning. Haarms is getting beat up right now, and Boilers are playing some pretty sloppy ball again :wall:

Yeah who knows what they will approve and what they wont. Purdue down 26-18 but it's early.

Yep. Not to toot my own horn, I picked them to go to the Final 4 and everyone thought I was nuts lmao. I mean there were people that thought Tennessee would beat KY if they played again. I had a friend pick Arizona to win it all even haha 

I probably would have picked Va

    • continued...   2023 NFL Draft   Round 1– LCB Devon Witherspoon – makings of Sauce Gardner and Jalen Ramsey taken with the 4th and 5th picks, respectively in their draft classes in Round 1   Round 2 – QB Hendon Hooker – Hooker is one of my top 3 QBs in this class and the steal of the draft imho   Round 3 via WSH – WR Rashee Rice 4.36 40-yd, 74% blocking solid all around WR not a burner outside but very dangerous inside   Round 4 – TE Brevyn Spann-Ford (Minnesota) – sticking with players who can run-block the Colts add another weapon with both Rice and Spann-Ford.  Brevyn is the best run-blocking TE in the class.  He earned an 82.8 run-blocking. grade which was ranked 3rd in FBS this season.   Round 5 – RCB Riley Moss (Iowa) - last season has a zone defense coverage grade of 81.5.  Gilmore’s future replacement at RCB.   Round 6 – QB Jaren Hall (BYU) – like Hooker had a very productive college career   Round 7– SS Kaevon Merriweather (Iowa) - 88.1 PFF grade. Versus Ohio State he had a 79 PFF grade.  Good measurements all around except hand and a 4.50s 40-time.   Offensive outlook ’23 Roster: QB:  Hooker, Ehlinger, Hall RB: Taylor, Moss, Jackson WR: Pittman Jr, Pierce, Campbell, Dulin, Rice, Strachan, Smith TE: Woods, Granson, Ogletree, Spann-Ford LT: Raimann, Edoga, Murray LG: Nelson, Haynes OC: Kelly, French, Pinter RG: Davis, Fries, Haynes RT: Smith, Edoga   Defense outlook ’23 Roster: Edge:  Paye, Lewis, Kareem IDL: Buckner, Williams, Agim IDL:  Stewart, Hill, Johnson Edge: Odeyingbo, Winovich, Berry   WLB: Okereke, Stuard MLB: Leonard, Speed, Rhyne SLB:  Franklin, Domann   CB: Witherspoon, Rodgers, Flowers SS: Cross, Merriweather, Denbow FS: Bates III, Thomas II, Watts, Dabo CB: Gilmore, Moss, Brown
    • Continuing in the direction of @John Hammonds and the rest of us forum arm-chair GMs   Coaching Staff   HC –Shane Steichen – no stranger to young rookie QBs and the Colts will need that help along with the proven productions as an OC Steichen has had over the years.  Adding Super Bowl Champion to his resume is soon coming.   OC – Pete Carmichael (Saints) – Carmichael remains very close to Drew Brees and with Brees ties to his alma mater in West Lafayette just makes sense to renew his growth along with Steichen at the helm.     DC – Gus Bradley – continue to build on our defense and not keep changing it every year or two   Restructure OC Ryan Kelly’s base 2023 (9.125m) and 2024 (11.375m) to 4.75m and 5.75m, respectively   2023 Roster Cuts: QB Matt Ryan QB Nick Foles TE Mo Alie-Cox DB Kenny Moore FS Julian Blackmon   FA Additions: RG Nate Davis (Titans) 44m contract 16m G, 9.5m SB, 18m/4-year plus 500k game bonuses OG Phil Haynes (Seahawks) 9m SB, 5m G, 9.5m base/3-year FS Jessie Bates III (Cincy) – family still in Ft Wayne wishes to stay close to home, 6m SB, 18m G, 26m/4-year base DT Trysten Hill (Cardinals) 3m SB, 2m G, 1.5m/2-year base Edge Chase Winovich (Browns) 3m SB, 2m G, 1.75m/2-year base OT Chuma Edoga (Falcons) 3m SB, 1m G, 4.5m/2-year base   Own FA Resigned: DB Armani Watts 1-year 1.35m K Chase McLaughlin 1-year 2.1m P Matt Haack 1-year 1.2m Edge Khalid Kareem 1-year 950k CB Tony Brown 1-year 1.25m WR Ashton Dulin 1-year 2.5m Edge Tyquan Lewis 1-year 2.5m LB E.J. Speed  4m/2-year base, 2m G WR Parris Campbell 9m SB, 9m G, base 24m/3-year base LB Bobby Okereke 9m SB, 9m G, base, 22m/3-year base       Rumors have it that the Panthers intend to jump ahead of the Colts and trade with Arizona.  Trading away RB Christian McCaffrey gave them additional draft capital.  The hiring of Reich just adds insult to injury, and he now has a change to stick it to the man who cut ties with him mid-year and take the QB the Colts coveted the most...or was it just draft smoke screen?  Maybe the real reason why the Colts had representation at the Kentucky-Tennessee game to watch both quarterbacks in action.  Hooker and the Vols dominated the Wildcats that day and left a very strong impression with the Colts brass.  Hooker is an older quarterback prospect but has excelled facing tough SEC competition showcasing his resume the past two seasons.  McKee from Stanford might have lightning-quick processing but has a bad history of throwing interceptions and hasn’t improved his reads.  We already had too many recent QBs throw too many INTs and its never a good formula for NFL success.   Denver just hired Payton as their HC and now the Saints have P29.  Its possible they take McKee but more likely they take Edge Will McDonald IV (Iowa St) to replace Marcus Davenport. Knowing we still don't have a QB on our roster besides Ehlinger expect the Saints to move ahead of the Colts in Round 2 to draft McKee.    
    • Callahan is Peyton's guy more than Jeff Saturday is Peyton's guy?  Peyton would get involved and recommend Callahan over Jeff?
    • Seems like they are not getting publicity but here are some measurements: https://www.the33rdteam.com/category/nfl-draft/2023-senior-bowl-weigh-in-measurement-results-for-nfl-prospects/      
    • Is it just me, it have measurements NOT been done yet?!?    I thought they were typically done Monday of the week,  but they’re not up on the website yet.     Seems strange to me…..
