  1. Southern Utah 80 Nebraska 70 BTW, I will be moving to northern Utah later this winter. Will be living in the Ogden area, so Weber State will become my local team. Weber and SUU are apparently rivals (who knew?) so I guess I now doubly want to beat SUU. Alas, they actually are supposed to be good this year.
  2. Let's look on the bright side. We weren't going to make the postseason this year anyway, so this loss doesn't really hurt us. But it will drag our RPI down into the gutter, meaning when we upset Creighton and Iowa later in the year it will count as a "bad loss" for them and keep them home in March, too!
  3. Of all the stock photos of SS that they could have used, they chose the one where he is fumbling the ball on an undefended dunk attempt?
  4. 1. big dudes do foul out a lot 2. free throw shooters are more valuable once you're in the bonus, especially in the second half 3. big dudes typically have less endurance, so are less likely to be fresh at the end of halves 4. tall guys often get the benefit of doubt to be a starter, even if they're not one of the 5 best players on the team 5. Somebody has to do that whole jump ball thing at the start of the game (I seem to remember Chris Balham ONLY doing the opening jump before being subbed out in a few games) I think those five reasons combined can explain a height disparity that is smaller than my fingernail.
  5. And according to a segment on AM 590 in Omaha, Thor got the most minutes by a wide margin. Can't imagine anyone predicted that. I sure didn't.
  6. Frankly, these guys are good at purging your brain of all bad 90's pop music. Need to delete N' Sync from your brain? Here ya go: Wish Britney Spears never happened? You can thank me later:
  7. I would like to rescind my previous submission and replace it with this beauty. Do you wish the boy band era of the 90's never happened? Would you prefer to remember the songs as a modern funk rendition instead? If so, then you're welcome. Here's Scary Pockets' cover of the Backstreet Boys' "I Want it That Way." I will not sully this board by posting the original. You know you know it.
  8. We'll just have to agree to disagree on cause & effect. There's a reason why Miles wasn't getting long-term extensions. In my opinion, that reason is also why top caliber HS players stopped wanting to play here. A lack of contract extension and lack of ability to land top HS players were both effects of the same cause -- losing.
  9. You've stated this view many times, and it's never made sense to me. Has any kid every said something like "I would've considered Nebraska, but I heard that Miles' contract wasn't extended"? Seems extremely unlikely that kids actually care if a coach has a contract running 5+ years. As an example, Brian Kelly just went to the College Football Playoff and he consistently strings together top 10 recruiting classes. His contract only runs through 2021, the same as Tim Miles' did. And before anyone states the obvious "well yeah, but basketball is different than football," I agree they're different. Long term contracts actually matter even less in basketball, because kids a) can turn pro younger, b) transfer at a higher rate, and c) redshirt at a lower rate. Whereas a football player has an interest in whether a coach will be around for 4-5 years, basketball players don't typically stick around more than 3 years.
  10. A close second would be Luca Stricagnoli's newest cover: Eminem's "Slim Shady." Can you tell that I'm an acoustic guitarist? This one might be an example of recency bias though. But it's so good!
  11. Gangsta's Paradise Original: Coolio Cover: Taylor Reed
  12. We also have zero guys that have played a minute together. Hence why this is a tough year to predict.
