Welp, just burned a good hour of time. I'd love it if they had a list of the icons in order that they build on the side. On occasion it'd be helpful to know what combining two pics makes, since i can't remember them all in order.

I've said for years that there will never be enough footage of the mother. My biggest fear on that show was that the show would end with Ted saying "Hi, I'm Ted", and the mother responding saying "Hi, I'm Tracy", and cut to black without ever knowing her. Thankfully it didn't quite do that...

Two issues with this season/episode:

1 - the entire season is spent dealing with Barney & Robin's wedding, and they're divorced quickly in the finale... It was a ridiculous relationship made even more ridiculous with their lack of commitment.

2 - I would have loved to have seen the entire last season be like the finale. spend the whole season building up to the conversation under the yellow umbrella at the train stop, but make 90%+ of the episode to be like "regular" episodes, but include the gang with the mother & kids.

I feel like people are having similar reactions to this show that people had to LOST. they wanted answers to questions, filling in the holes, but the creators/writers were making a show about the characters. Ted was always my favorite character in the show (I know I'm in the minority), and I'm glad to see him meet the love(s) of his life. It's just a shame the amount of screen time was so disparate between Robin & Tracy (although it's obvious why that was the case).

Sad to see it end...

With OSU out of the dance, it's a lot easier for me to root for other teams - especially other B1G teams. I picked MSU to go all the way anyway, so I have some reason to root for them there, but I have no issue with the success of MSU & Wisconsin bball here. *ichigan on the other hand, I'm ok with them losing any day of the year - I especially don't want them winning it all.

Comment 31 Mar 2014

I was definitely rooting for MSU for two reasons - I like Izzo and a lot of his players (when not playing against OSU), and my wallet would appreciate them winning.

I think my big issue with UK is Calipari - he's got some great talent, but he just rubs me the wrong way… I'm torn as to who I wanted to lose more in that game though...

A lot of times coaches won't call timeouts so that the defense doesn't have a chance to get set. However, I've read that Matta was trying to call a timeout right before they passed the ball inbounds, but the "refs weren't listening".

I really see Q as a Kevin Durant-like player - I kind of wish he had the same kind of green light that KD has. He's not quite at that level, but wonder what could be if he was 100% between the ears, and had a supporting cast around him that was ready to make that offense run through him. 

I think if he is on and Amir/Trey are on, that will be the key to success this weekend and next.

I wish there was a stat in basketball (or at least I don't think there is) that was comparable to WAR in baseball. Craft's would theoretically be through the roof, and it might show a little more statistical evidence of how much he means to the team that how many points he scores.

Comment 18 Mar 2014

I think what Matta or someone said about Conley was that he was a guy that everything clicked between the ears very early, so everything else was just pure talent. I think it was in comparison to Q when things kind of started to line up for him - even though I'd say sometimes he's not 100% there.

Comment 18 Mar 2014

I heard an interview with Jim Boeheim yesterday on ESPN talking about how teams are ranked, and the issues with teams like MSU and UofL ranked 4. He said there should be one main aspect of judging a team, not everyone coming in with different criteria (SOS, eye test, full resume, done for me lately). I think he's right - and I think it should be a full resume judging. I think MSU and Louisville would both come out higher, seeing as they're obviously growing (and getting healthy) as the season goes on, which is what's supposed to happen, right???

Comment 18 Mar 2014

Man, I need to get on submitting a bracket to that. 250 million sounds terrific, but I think squirrel master has it right - it depends on who's playing in the final as to whether I'd take that "consolation" prize.

Comment 18 Mar 2014

I'm still a little ticked that the game he took over against Purdue was completely blacked out where I live… I do hope that he at least gets a chance somewhere.

Comment 18 Mar 2014

Teams are solving the 2-3 zone - they're doing so by getting someone offensively minded and aggressive enough (but not overly-aggressive) in the middle. Deshaun Thomas did it two years ago, and Q is clearly the guy for it right now… Assuming this game actually gets played :)

Comment 17 Mar 2014

Definitely - if they don't start on the bad end of a 15-2 run, and the opponent doesn't light it up behind the arc, they have a real solid sweet sixteen run in them.
