    2020 College Hoops Thread

    I definitely have misgivings about his offense, I've definitely stated I would have preferred a more offensive-minded coach, and it's going to be interesting transitioning to the other side of the flops (Brock Cunningham is going to go bonkers next year) but the dude is a winner and has won...

    I would have agreed he's the favorite earlier, but apparently we only talked to him for 15-20 minutes today. I'm not totally sure what that means, I'd imagine it means that it was to let him know where in the process we are but clearly it wasn't a formal interview if that was the case. I...

    2020 College Hoops Thread

    Definitely seems like Beard is option 1. Basically every site has thrown out Cal's name though because of the revelation he's able to leave Kentucky without paying a buyout (which is a hilariously bad job by Kentucky) and I'm sure our boosters are pushing for us to at least do our due diligence...

    Hopefully the Moody Center helps with some of that and maybe CDC is able to bring some of the gameday spectacle to basketball games. Obviously not for every matchup but for bigger ones/weekend ones at least.

    Great job by Shaka for being a great interview, Jimmy Sexton for doing Jimmy Sexton things, and CDC for getting out of this situation without having to pay a buyout. I doubt we get one of my personal top two of Musselman/Beilein but the rumored top group of Beard/Altman/Ivey doesn't have any...

    NBA Top Shot

    Should have clarified that it was the common type packs that I noticed that on. The expensive ~$200-230 packs barely had non purchases, likely because you had to already own moments just to join the drop.

    NBA Top Shot

    Are there any sites that track how many people get the chance to purchase a pack per the amount available? It feels like ~20-30% of people that have the chance don't but I'd be interested to see the actual data.

    Cool, he won 2 games against the 6 and 4 seeds and had a day off the opponent didn't before the title. It's a very fraudulent trophy. Not that conference tourney wins should matter much either.

    NCAA Tournament Thread

    Watching this game gave me the same feeling as the Kansas football loss. At a certain point I just hoped it would happen so I wouldn't have to deal with a coach this dogshit again. Four players on this roster will be playing pro basketball next year. He's never going to have a team this talented...

    Washington completely took OSU out of this game trying to be a hero, rough stuff

    I got you both beat at 222,000. I wonder how many of these are real accounts, I figured demand would be lower due to the cost but maybe it skyrocketed because of the limited nature of the all star highlights?

    Texas Football: Tom Herman Out, Steve Sarkisian In

    Post-hiring of his full staff I'm more bullish on Sark than I was right after it was announced. I'm at about an A/A- for the full staff, bit lower for the process. It felt like we didn't seem to know what was going to happen with Gideon as far as role between possibly hiring him for Muschamp and...

    Texas Football: Tom Herman Out, Steve Sarkisian In

    I use Surly for the freely posted premium info, but the football board is incredibly craptacular. The recruiting board is a lot more sane when active (see: not the past 3 months).

    Texas Football: Tom Herman Out, Steve Sarkisian In

    Agreed with Canderson that the Inside Texas guys are good for more of the administration/actual football stuff and were ahead of the game for the coaching search, as far as recruiting goes The Football Brainiacs have been the best in my opinion. Of course this changes with every new coaching...

    The Ringer

    Honestly been hilarious to see them freak out over this and Simmons dedicating 30 mins at the end of a pod to plug that he's doing a weekly Challenge thing that won't even be on his main feed. Feels like they think Bill was a sport savant that had awesome takes up till Grantland and that that...

    NBA 20/21 season thread

    The Lakers option always required one/two of them to take paycuts, Miami can absolutely make the space if that's where Giannis wants to go, and Dallas is still a very appealing option. I'd personally love if he stayed in Milwaukee because the roster is already aging in a significant way and I...

    2020 NBA Draft discussion

    Highly recommend looking into his backstory. Basic gist is, was one of those "nations #1 7th/8th grader" types, quit basketball, ballooned up to 270 by his senior year of high school when he decides he wants to give it another go, makes his way through prep school and a JUCO year before making...

    He is/was the only player the Lakers had to match salary with in trades, thus...everyone threw him into potential trades. Literally every other player they could give up right now (excluding KCP who would be a s&t) is at 5 million and under.
