Craft's ability to swipe down and steal the ball without fouling would be devastating in the NBA if not for the superstar rules in place. And I'm saying this as a Cavs fan who realizes LeBron and, to some extent, Kyrie get a lot of calls. I would be very interested to see what Craft would do to Curry, now that Craft is on another team's D-League roster.
I just hope Kaminsky doesn't win.
I agree on quick cals -- they are stupid and embarrassing.
After the Virginia Tech game, I called for Cardale Jones to replace J.T. Barrett and to load up and go almost exclusively with a power running game because I didn't think Cardale could be an effective passing quarterback.
I kind of rooted for Miami to score a touchdown in the 4th quarter of the 2010 game so that my score prediction would be right and I would win an 11W t-shirt (I did tie for the closest prediction, so I got my t-shirt!).
The only thing I can think of is that calling a timeout in the backcourt might not reset the 10 second count anymore. If that's the case, I support the rule change.
Cavs with 0 bench points after the awesome J.R. 3 to end the first half makes it even worse...

If only Curtis Grant could have lived up to his 5-star high school recruiting ranking and reached his potential that recruiting analysts imagined for him, maybe people would remember him...
I hope someone makes it into a movie someday.
Hate Bo Ryan, hate Kaminsky and his flopping, still hate Mike Bruesewitz even though he's been gone a few years, so boo Wisconsin.
Ugh, not liking this matchup. I won't be surprised if we play frantically and get eaten alive by their pressure. At least we should be able to play small (less Amir/Trey is good).
I heard somewhere that Valentine made the game-winning shot against us on Valentine's Day. I'm not sure if ESPN or anyone else beat that story to death on the day it happened, so I thought I should rehash it.
Blurred Lines, arguably the worst song of the millennium... I'm glad to hear the perpetrators of that awfulness won't get to keep as much of the money it generated.
Russell has a lot of skills like Harden and the benefit of not being a huge douche.
216 till I die!
McCaffery has replaced Bo Ryan as my second least-favorite coach in the B1G. Woodbury is a douche, hope he gets knocked down/elbowed/pushed regularly for the rest of his career.
Vegas has OSU as a 7.5 point favorite tonight, so hopefully they're right. It's crazy to me what a huge advantage home court is in college basketball.
If Miller, Barrett, and Jones are all able to play against VT, we can justify running up the score since it will be our "second string" and "third string" quarterbacks accounting for a lot of the points we should score.
I still can't believe Nike turned down my "Won Again, Now Done for a Little While" idea to follow the "Won Not Done" shirt.
I want to see us put up at least 60!
I thought the same thing -- imagine if Mariota (or anyone) had gotten injured running those meaningless plays at the end of the game. I was glad we pounded the last touchdown in. Oregon is capable of scoring quickly, getting an onside kick, and scoring again with that much time left.
I can't believe how amazing Elliott has been in the last three games. We saw flashes of it during the season, but they let him be a workhorse in the last three games, and we've seen how it pays off! I've only ever seen film of Archie Griffin, but the balance Elliott has shown and some of the tackles he has broken look a lot like Archie.
As it should be! Back to .500 in National Championship games in my lifetime! Rewatching this game will make me as nervous as the Miami game, but I'll love it anyway! Go Buckeyes!
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh we did it!! We will never see another season like this again, absolutely amazing! Go Buckeyes!
75 yards rushing. But he'll take a screen pass and a wheel route for 120 receiving yards.
I could be wrong, but it also seems similar to the Solomon Thomas pick to seal the Sugar Bowl win over Arkansas that the NCAA says didn't happen. I like that memory better than the PSU pick-6 this year...
