    A - not sure this group is really "ACC talent." I love them, but 2 ball handlers are graduate transfers from non-P5 schools. 1 of the others was not heavily recruited and ended up at UofL b/c Dick Vitale urged Rick to bring him in (and I'm happy he did). B - Deuce is right. They have struggled against full court pressure every time they've seen it. I can't believe they haven't seen more of it. I'm sure they will now. Hopefully they fix it...

    I don't want to live in a world where this is not goaltending. Yes, I saw the Gene Steratore tweet and all the other back & forth about whether UK guy "vibrated" the goal and backboard by hitting the net and/or rim. If Steratore and others are right, we're going to get a whole new defensive strategy of big guys / athletic guys who can jump camping out underneath the basket, jumping up and extending their hands outside the "cylinder" or the...

    Single digit loss would be a moral victory.

    Challenge accepted. Both are 27 yrs old and have similar service time. There are plenty of ways to slice it to show they are either even or advantage to Tucker. He's NOT literally better in every aspect of the game. SALARY - advantage TB JT - $5.9M in 2019, ARB3 in 2020, FA in 2021 (he's gonna be expensive) TB - $2.5M in 2019, $3.5M in 2020, $3.75M in 2021, $7.5M in 2022 (club option; pays $500k if not exercised) (he's affordable and a...

    Since WWII, the Avg. Time / 9 innings has only exceeded 3:00 2x (2014 & 2017). It has, however, steadily increased over the years. (1946 was a statistical outlier at 1:56.) I am much more concerned with the "pace" of the game than the "length" of the game. Increasing "pace" to remove dead time will result in the "length" being shortened as well, but that is a by-product rather than a goal. 2 big problems with "pace": 1 - strategy of...

    After asking the question above, I looked at the stats. While Realmuto appears to be a consensus choice over Tucker, I'm not sure once you throw the contract status into the analysis, particularly for a team like the Reds, that Tucker isn't a better choice right now.

    Any recent rumors on Realmuto? Would India, Senzel, Trammell, Greene or anyone else be "off limits" for you? Marlins are claiming they won't allow extension discussions with Realmuto prior to trade. That really hamstrings potential parties as he is only under control for 2 years without an extension. Can the Reds afford to keep Barnhart as a backup or does he need to be included in the deal?

    Sort of a running joke. I now go ahead and count the 2 games w/ UVa every year as losses at the beginning of the conference season. Makes them hurt less then they happen. :isurrender:

    Go get a win at Wake. 6-3 going into the beginning of FEB blender would be really strong.

    But - UofL's best player shot 0-7 from 3. You can play that game all day long.

    Good win, particularly with Nwora having an off night (3-12 and 0-7 from 3 w/ 4 TOs ) and Sutton missing minutes due to 1st half foul trouble. Got crushed on the boards and NC State, particularly Beverly, got waaaay too many open 3 point looks. NC State TOs make it look like UofL played tenacious D, but many of those were unforced. 3 guard lineup (Fore, Cunningham & McMahon) to start 2nd half due to Sutton foul trouble was pretty...

    And sit which 2 of the following? Puig, Schebler, Winker & Kemp (not to mention Senzel if they decide he deserves to come up and can't crack the IF - which I don't think will be a problem before the All-Star break when some players might get moved even if the Reds have improved given that he is coming off an injury) I'm OK with Kemp platooning some and using Erwin as a defensive replacement for him in some games he starts where it makes...

    Bravo. If they cared about substance or PR, they'd make sure there was a CCH MLK Day of Service event tomorrow (there probably already is) and they'd make sure an OVERWHELMING # of their students, teachers, parents, administrators, sponsors, alumni, etc. showed up to provide that service.

    Same crowd that was "offended" by the Gillette ad last week. Maybe they need to go back and watch it more closely. Those doing it? Don't do it. Those encouraging it (particularly adults), don't do that. Those standing idly by (particularly adults), intervene, de-escalate and make this a teachable moment.

    Tom Browning's perfect game. Not sure why, but I listened to this to get the adrenaline going before most of my law school final exams. Pretty sure it was a walkman and cassette tape back then. Can't remember how I got it onto a cassette.
