  • Patrick Flavin T-6 in the PGA Tour Bermuda Championship thru 2 rounds. I am not sure how he got in the field. Perhaps a Sponsor's Exemption? Many regular PGA players skipped this event opening spots for others to get in the field but it is a full st…
  • Last minute Halloween costume idea for The Sackman https://mobile.twitter.com/PeteBlackburn/status/1448769822951682050
  • Just needed to get rid of Torts and let the boys play some hockey! Amirite?
  • Full schedule is out. Rounded out non-conference with 3 non D1 home games. 20 games in the MAC. Play everyone twice, except we don’t play at Kent or home versus Ball State. https://miamiredhawks.com/news/2021/9/28/mens-basketball-mens-basketbal…
  • Belmont joining the Missouri Valley in 2022. Rumor is Murray State could be joining them.
  • Game is sold out.
  • The entire event ticket industry was trending towards 100% digital tickets and the pandemic fast forwarded that process. Paper tickets are a thing of the past, although there are still a few exceptions. Music festival wristbands for example. Al…

  • He was on campus for just over a year Appreciate the update Jive, but we need to be patient and wait until Eddie hears back from Dave Hyde on this one.
  • Another good week shooting 15 under (again), but only good enough for T-32. Two more weeks left in the regular season and he sits at 142nd on the points list. He’s played great this summer, but needs a win to lock up Korn Ferry status for next yea…
  • This is a good change. Let the free market decide what these players should be paid. I guess it could widen the gap between the haves and have nots, but the reality is the gap can’t get much wider.
  • Rounds of 67-70-75-80 this week for Flavin in Maine. Seems like a little fatigue after barnstorming the country the last 6 weeks from Kansas City-Chicago-Raleigh-Fort Lauderdale-Wichita-Portland. The barnstorming continues as he’s one off the lead…

  • Flavin should get into the rest of the Korn Ferry events this year, so he has today plus 6 more tournaments to get into the top 75 of the season long points list before the playoffs begin. He is currently #168 with 100 points (all from his T5 in Ch…
  • Loyola promotes assistant Drew Valentine, making him the youngest D1 head coach at age 29. He is credited as the Defensive Coordinator and mastermind of the #1 defense in the country. Of note, Porter Moser was under .500 during his 13 year career …
  • Ohio hanging with UVA midway through the first half. MAC’s last shot at a post season win. Don’t be silly, the CBI starts Monday!
  • CBI field is 8 this year. Games in Daytona Beach. The KenPom rankings of the 7 teams known so far include: #112 Pepperdine #174 Bryant #175 Coastal Carolina #183 Bellarmine #189 Army #238 Longwood #248 Stetson For comparison, Miami is #145.

  • OU cancelled their game tonight due to Covid, so seems unlikely they will play BG on Friday.  Therefore, we would get the 6 with a win over Akron and play the loser of the Buffalo/Kent game.  If we lose to Akron, then we would get the 7 and play the…
  • Credit to Coach Owens for making the refs re-review that play at the end of regulation after they looked at it for 10 minutes and couldn't get it right.  Crazy to think the clock operator and refs almost stole that game from us.  How the hell does t…
  • The top of the MAC is strong this year. Currently, 6 teams in the top 115 of the KemPom, which hasn’t happened since 2005 when the MAC had 8 top 100 teams. Toledo has had the best season, but I’m not sure they deserve their own tier, especially wi…
  • Owens makes $350k. Pedon makes $500k. Ohio pays Jeff Boals $581k Wright St pays Scott Nagy $500k. Chuck Martin makes $550k. Chris Bergeron makes $305k.
  • Is Preston playing tonight or still out?
  • Fewer people seem to be playing golf than 20 or 30 years ago.  New courses are not being built in our area, and over the last decade or so some have been closing. This trend is similar to another of my own personal hobbies, bike rides and in particu…
  • Never played either, but always sad to hear about course closures. Madden was designed by Nipper Campbell, who is famous for mentoring Francis Ouimet prior to winning the 1913 US Open in Boston. He spent time as the pro at Losantaville in Cincinna…
  • I’m not sure why we wouldn’t demand a higher buyout. It’s not like Chuck would be paying it! Wouldn’t the buyout be taken into consideration if another next school makes him an offer? Perhaps, but schools are paying HUGE buyouts to get their guy. A…

  • Enjoy the home schedule this year because the next 3 years are brutal. Our OOC home games are: 2021 - LIU 2022 - Robert Morris 2023 - Liberty That’s it.
  • At least we are watchable again?
  • We’ve made 37 straight free throws going back to the end of the CMU game. NCAA record is 54. Streak ends at 38. The mega jinx
