Sweet! I'm in. I created an espn pick em league this past regular season and we got pretty good participation. Was there another league as well?

Alabama's recruiting classes look on par with my NCAA dynasty squads. That is some serious talent.

Come at the king, you best not miss. We gotta bring it New Years Day.

Strike in baseball, from the pitcher's perspective. Deep pass over the shoulder = backdoor looping curve. That first TD was more like a breaking ball with late action. The DB/batter whiffs, but the catcher/Devin reads it the whole way and scoops it for a swinging K/TD.

in the context of this skully, i believe 'Euphoria' is carolina slang for a cacao. Right, mayonnaise boy?

Fellas, I might not make it after all. The folks have other plans for pre-game activities. Heading to the convention center now. I hope to make it to Howl at the Moon for at least a little while before kick. We'll see how it plays out.

So I called around the bars on GA St. and asked for recommendations. The consensus is Howl At the Moon (20 E Georgia St, Indianapolis, IN 46204). It's right down the block from the stadium and supposed to be live on game days. So let's do the damn thing.

I'll be there round ~4. Ask for the 11W party, or if you beat me there then talk with the hostess and create the 11W party.

Go Bucks. I have a great feeling about this game.

DJ, if I wasn't rolling with my pops we could really get down. But either way, I owe you a few beers considering the shade I've thrown your way. Hit me up @thatlefty if there isn't a clear consensus on this thread.

@NG - Georgia Street sounds cool. Any specific bars or is it like a festival scene with beer stands lining the streets?

they actually turned that kid out round the 3 minute mark... not so sure he was scared straight.

First Half: We need to go back, watch the tape, then emulate everything L'ville did tonight, cuz that's our style. We're just as fast as the Cards on offense but we have to play with composure. Too many crazy shots and ill-advised passes through traffic. Also, I think the real reason we're playing the 3-2 zone is not to 'take advantage of our length', but to compensate for our lack of size, strength and heart in the front court. Amir, McDonald & Lee are decent centers, but honestly, who are our forwards? I thought Tate was a forward but he's playing the top of the key in the 3-2.

Second Half: We showed A LOT OF HEART! I expect nothing less from a Matta squad - that's our calling card. It would have been even closer if Russel wasn't called on 2 ticky-tack fouls early. Same with Loving; he was absolutely hosed by the baseline refs. Props to our guys for never backing down. Shout outs to: Slam for banging on the boards, Kam hitting 3's, Tate sneaking that rebound off Amir's missed FT, Russel balling out w/ 4 fouls,

The biggest difference between the buckeyes and L'ville right now is the play of our bigs. Defensively, Amir doesn't put a body on anyone and we give up too many offensive boards. It puts us at such a disadvantage. I don't understand why Matta doesn't give McDonald or Lee more minutes. Hell, between the three of them, that's at least a lot of fouls to give up. No easy buckets, right?

I still love this team. Tough loss but so much to learn. This team has a high ceiling. Let's go bucks. #BeatWisky
