Oh, true. They'll be in the Big 10 starting in 2014-15, for anyone like me that didn't know. More chances to play Dook.
Ole Miss 64, Missouri 62: They wouldn't have been in a position to win without fan-favorite/kayfabe villain Marshall Henderson's 27 (0 assists), but it was backup guard Derrick Millinghaus that iced it with a smooth runner as time ran out:
Vanderbilt 64, Kentucky 48: The spell is broken. Opposing coaches can sleep soundly without night-terror visions of John Calipari sliding commitment letters toward their prized recruits and winking as the sound of a gun cocking echoes in the distance. All is possible. The king is dead! Long live the king.
Syracuse 58, Georgetown 55: A fitting send-off for the archetypical Big East rivalry—a tight, bruising overtime game that was nearly decided by missed free throws. Syracuse wouldn't be in the Big East finals now were it not for backup guard Trevor Cooney's mini-offensive explosion (10 points equaled 250% of his March…
Maryland 83, Dook 74: The last time Maryland and Duke match up as conference rivals, and it results in a big ol' sad face for the Blue Devils. Dez Wells led the Terps with 30 points on 9/13 shooting and 10/10 from the line. I'll just leave this here.
Puerto Rico 4, United States 3: Part of the United States eliminated the entire United States from the World Baseball Classic, thus ending our bid to be the best at our national pastime, a game we invented. Might be time to rename the World Series.
UCLA 66, Arizona 64: Freshman Jordan Adams, a pleasant surprise as of late, spurred the Bruins to a win over the Wildcats and then broke his foot when the game was 99.999% over.
Kobe Bryant started against the Pacers despite an ankle injury that was supposed to keep him out "indefinitely," and the Lakers won despite Kobe Bryant.
Deadspin just 3-8 in their last 11 cuz their clubhouse chemistry has taken a hit with the expected and than return of Emma
They're saying Arians has an ear infection—he was dizzy this morning and doctors won't let him coach.
This was good too.
The Second looks bad right now, but the Tenth is the worst. Don't get caught up in the moment.
I liked it.
We didn't say it wasn't a reasonable story at the time. Just pointing out the contrast between then and now.
I just know that it's fucking atrocious trying to talk to anyone under 25 about sports.
You know, I think I may have missed the point the first time as well. Here's what I'd say now, reading it again: Imagine you broke your leg. Then imagine that 40,000 people ran by, without helping. If the race was canceled, your leg would still be broken, obviously. But wouldn't you just rather they not run by, if…
Hey, I wasn't around yesterday and don't feel like checking the math (or all of the comments from the many that responded) but, while the money question matters, money is pouring in—the problem is more manpower, organization, and safety. In this context, I'm more interested in psychic distance, and the spiritual…
