Unreal.  Not sure I've ever seen anything like Toronto s home and away play differential. 

I Ithought maybe Lowry was sick or injured first 2 games after seeing him in games 3 or 4 

good news for Toronto is I don't think Lowry or derozen will ever test the free agent market, they need that home court. 

Is toronto somehow using using a bad metric conversion routine that makes the rim too high or too low, and thus explains why they play so different home and away?  

I'm too lazy to look up season or multi season stats on their home versus away

I got pulled over for speeding once... I told the Cop I was going to get new brake lights if he let me off with a warning.. 

Sorry for asking this.. but are any of those issues NCAA issues?  I thought the NCAA was more involved with amateur status(all jokes aside) and did not touch any criminal activities(even more  jokes aside).   Although I have wondered how these actions are not violations of codes of conduct at a university?  Of course there is a long history at most universities about how Rapes are handled/ not handled... 

And why couldnt the NCAA have a Code of Conduct.. even if it was a watered down version of the AVG university code of conduct.. so they could use it in cases like this...

Golden State in a sweep..

      I mean 5, everyone loses 1...

            Theyll take it in 6...  

                  Theyll regroup and win in 7.,..  

                         They were tired from winning 73 games that is why they lost the series...

                                   Seth Curry was hurt...

Bill Donovan - not much talk about the job he is doing...

I am not saying it is an awesome schedule... but how does it compare to the avg top 25 basketball team...   there are 5-6 good games in this OOC,    About 40%?

Compare that to football 1 of the 3?   

As a reminder.. Basketball has about 350 div 1 teams.. and only about 130 make it to some sort of Post season  tournament.

Football has about 12x div 1 teams, and over half get bowl games..  So if you equate a bowl game to getting to the NCAA tourney.. which I dont, and you should not either... It is much easier to shcedule a "bowl" team in football than an NCAA tourney team in basketball (1/6 of teams get in). 

I do agree they need at least one more good home game this year...  Would have been nice if that ACC challenge had fallen in that slot this year...

One thing I always heard from people in OSU basketball circles(over last 40 years)  was...  you can have struggles in the basketball program.. just make sure you struggle with in state kids.. if the program sturggles with out of state players the admin turns up the heat...

The worst part of the stories was having to read how the victim who did come forward was terrified of the reaction of sport fans. <-- this was a real issue...  This made the issue beyond just PSU to me... Because we are all part of that 'fan' problem where we never want to believe anything bad about what we like which can lead to victim blaming...

The warriors are better than last year IMHO.. but  people are acting like a completely healthy cavs team was swept in the finals last year...

The Warriors beat what might be one of the worst teams in the NBA finals in a while... The cavs were without Love and Irving(after injury in first game). 

I believe the Spurs are the team that would have a better chance of sweeping or dominating the CAVS this year..

I would be absolutely terrified to be Michigan ranked ahead of OSU coming into the Shoe this year...  And it could happen..   

42-13 last year was a big deal... It was as sweet as winning one game in the playoff... 

I fully suspect our team this year to have 2 loses heading into that michigan game(can michigan hold up their end of the bargain and be undefeated/ one loss etc.. I seriously doubt it... )... And that is bad news for the wolverines.. Our team will be much different in November than September early October when I suspect the losses to occur.  And They will be very hungry... 

This could be PSU 63-14 ugly... And I wont complain about missing the playoffs again one bit.. if this is how it ends..

I will agree with what he said, because it is true.. and it would not matter who the coach was..  Some people spin anything towards OSU benefit..

Not knowing a potential recurit is one thing.. not knowing a committment is another.. It is not the end of the world.. but to act like it is not a big deal.. is taking it too lightly(using rose colored glasses). 

There are 120 players roughly on team (walkons.. etc). and around 50 committed recruits..

You sit down with these kids parents and tell them you are going to take care of them for 4 years.. So... Yeah.. I can understand someone decommitting over that... It happens... do better next time.. try to make sure it does not happen again...

I'm not a Mensa member, but the majority of people who really live and breath ESPN are just a few steps away from being a supporting character in the movie idiocracy.    

Of course I can't stand to watch CNN or Fox News either for some of the same reasons.   So the problem could very well be with me and not them.

The only way a POD style would work for me.. is if only conference games in your POD count for the the POD standings... The rest of the games can be used as tie breakers... Too many anomalies..   Similar to Iowa last year.. It disrupts the whole division champ and turns it into a joke..

You have a year where you are in a POD with Indiana, Indians has 4 Out of POD games against Illinois, Duke, Minnesota and Rutgers and wins them all.. OSU gets FSU, ND, Neb,  and PSU and Loses 2 of 4.  Indiana finishes with 1 conference loss to OSU by 50, and OSU has 2 loses outside the POD, and IU gets the POD bid for BIG mini playoff..    I hate that stuff.. hated it when the SEC first went to 12 teams.. Too much is hidden in these 'Division champs'.

Bosa and Elliot are two players you won't see anyone like in your lifetime again.   They are all timers.   

Special blend of talent, athleticism, team work, attention to detail, and production.    Similar to but not quite Archie and Pace
