  • It looked like one of the tornadoes traveled 5-7 minutes south of my parents' house as Hara Arena experienced significant damage.  They don't have any water whatsoever since there's no power at the pumping stations. (as of this morning)

  • John Beilein has stunned the majority of Michiganders in leaving UM and taking the Cleveland Cavs job.  I saw Coach at church yesterday with his wife and granddaughter.  Surreal.
  • The consensus up here is that Purdue is the favorite for him to go to.
  • Illinois seems like the longer shot than Mississippi State; they had a lot of young players play the skill positions last year and they were putting up some points by the end of the year, they just couldn't stop anyone. Mississippi St. is where form…

  • Cline has disappeared.Virginia started guarding him like everyone does with Sibande, flash hard on the dribble handoff and take away his right hand and the quick trigger on his jumper. What Purdue does better than us with their offense is Cline is w…
  • The remaining games: 1-2, 1-3, 1-3, 2-5 Sheesh, what a boring tournament. That said, no surprise that this is my worst performance since the year I picked MSU and they were upset by a 15 in the first round. Man, do I suck at this. If you've watched…
  • Michigan State to Elite 8.  Auburn is taking down #1 North Carolina.This may be my bracket peak picking Auburn in this game. I thought Texas Tech's takedown of Buffalo was more impressive.  Buffalo found a way to score on everybody; Michigan had the…
  • The argument is that lower seeded P6 teams stole bids from mid-majors and were "less deserving".  By winning over higher seeds, they justify their selection and place there.  The best outcome to potentially to get more consideration for mid major at…
  • Golf Match Play as well
  • It takes a real effort to get outcoached by Fran McCaffery and outtoughed by an Iowa team, the weakest team in the BIG, but Mick and his team managed to do both.
  • Avery Johnson negotiating a buyout from Alabama.  Fallout from the FBI investigation and the upcoming testimony from Sean Miller and Will Wade?
  • The Big East is already down to 1 team.  The BIG went 5-0.
  • This is actually JWags' last comment, which got deleted for some reason: *** For a time Miami was a top 5 program in the 3rd most visible male college sport.  It brought in alumni excitement, donations and game watches. =>3rd most would be col…

  • 65 only said a "guaranteed" win so I want to beat Ohio St., which is basically the SEC of the North, and take my chances that we finally get over the top against UC.
    in UC or OSU? Comment by mz343 March 19
  • "Well, I know he is a "cheap" player since he is from Ohio (in-state tuition), but couldn't we get a more talented player?" The answer is "no". That should tell you something about this staff. Both these comments belong on the hawktalk list of inc…
  • I think all anyone needs to know about this game, if they did or didn't watch it, is at one time, our lineup was Ringo, Sibande, Harouna, McNamara, and Abrams.  I don't think anything else needs to be said.
  • I mean, that seems to be where these guys think they are coaching.  https://twitter.com/RyneSmith_/status/1104499209661808640 https://twitter.com/KLowe_20/status/1104550570248077312 Coincidentally, all of Akron's staff members (who, believe it or…
  • 11 guys played tonight, five of them played less than 10 minutes. Out of the 200 game minutes, 35 minutes were allotted to Harouna, Abrams, Eli, Precious and Jovic. Ringo played 27 minutes. How would you have preferred the minutes to be distributed?…
  • That was some pretty ugly basketball.  A good team would've put away OU any one of the 5 or 6 times in the 1st half and early in the 2nd that we had the chance to do so, but we couldn't.  And it seemed like whenever we could put them away, we had a …
  • So unless Central blows their big lead in Kalamazoo, this is how things will end up: 1. Buffalo 16-22. Toledo 13-53. BG 12-64. Kent 11-75. Central 10-86. Eastern 9-97. NIU 8-108. Akron 8-109. Miami 7-1110. Ball St. 6-1211. OU 6-1212. Western 2-16
  • Only because it's easier for me, I'm going to take Blues's points one-by-one. 1. I agree (easy enough) 2. I'll agree with Dick in that I think Sibande's improved during the 2nd half of conference play, though I'd like to see him become a better defe…

  • The only thing we've done consistently this year is show immaturity.  Whether it be talking too much trash and not enough on defense, showing too much bravado instead of acting like you've been there before, or not playing hard for 40 minutes, we've…
  • As I see it, here are the scenarios in which we can get a 1st round home game: 1. Miami wins, Akron loses, NIU loses, Miami finishes 7th 2. Miami wins, Akron wins, NIU loses, Miami finishes 8th 3. Miami and NIU lose, creating a 3-way tie with Ball S…
  • Standings through 3/2, just 2 games left for everybody. 1. Buffalo 14-2, clinched 1st round-bye, clinches #1 seed with a win or BG loss in either of the last 2 games, at OU, vs. BG2. BG 12-4, clinched 1st round bye, at Akron, at Buffalo3. Toledo 11-…
  • This is a hard game to evaluate.  I would've stressed the following in my scouting report as keys to victory:1. Make them play in the half-court. I'd say that this happened at times, but not nearly often.  The pace felt frantic, which favors Buffalo…
  • I would also point out that starting CJ guard Ashley  Goldsberry is the daughter of Miami assistant coach Frank Goldsberry, who was also the CJ coach at the time.And his son John played at Vandalia Butler, 2 years younger than I was.  He was a heck …

  • 2nd tiebreaker, I think, is record against the 1st place team, then 2nd place team and so on until you find an advantage for someone.
