My Uncle Al passed away this past year. He was a Marine in Europe in WWII. My Dad said he talked about seeing one soldier after another pick up the American flag after the previous bearer was killed or wounded. My family is very fortunate to have never lost anyone in war. I’m grateful for the sacrifice of so many other families that has kept us free.
Pack gets the two run gift back plus 1 and leads 8-3 going to the bottom of the ninth.
4-3-3 is an interesting choice. Who needs that 1th guy anyway.
The pro DD argument is that he took us from the disaster that was semi-retired TOB recruiting and the accompanying dearth of talent to a spot where we were competitive with the best teams in the ACC.
The anti DD argument is that he still hasn’t won a game against a superior opponent and he hasn’t won all of the games he was supposed to win.
Finley/Drinky are largely responsible for saving his job imo. If we continue with a steady upgrade in talent level we might have a shot at the ACC title game before long. So this is the long winded way of saying the jury is still out and I can see sane people in both camps. He’s not Knute Rockne but he’s not Tom Reed either.
3) Place kicking will be better
If you said place kicking will be worse that might have prompted some objections.
Good action thus far. 2 teams that are really fun to watch.
So, this direct TV commercial they just played with the girl throwing stuff out the window…. Imagine the polar opposite of that commercial and the outrage that would follow.
I had that exact same thought.
I’m not planning on watching tonight but I wanted to drop in and sign off for the college basketball season. Looking forward to a summer with the Astros after the NBA playoffs.
Springer opens the Astros season just like he did last year, with a lead off HR.
CRF is going home.
Ramblers are fo real
Yes they are. They play 4 around 1 as well as anybody I’ve seen.
I’m starting this one so we’ll have a running Topic for Wolfpack Baseball as the season moves forward, but ya’ll baseball gurus have got to pitch in help with updates direct from the ballpark and the color commentary, ’cause ya’ll already know I’m just a roundballer….
Looks like we’re setup for an excellent season…
And the local sports press continues to find good things to say about NC State to the exclusion of ‘other’ local college teams…
For example… this morning, Mary Dunleavy of WRAL has this to say…
Kinneman’s big bat helps NC State to top of ACC
Baseballs are round Bill and the article is even written by a Dunleavy. You are therefore supremely qualified.
I watched the Klempson games last Saturday and Sunday. This looks like a really solid team.
Looks like Sister Jean will get to tour the Missions in San Antonio. The Ramblers are dealin’.
Well… Kentucky’s gone – which disappoints no one but Kentucky fans.
And the NOLES continue to play hot….
Let’s hope Clempsom shows up with their best tonight…
Coach Case rejoices today after the Wildcats go down
A 7 footer with soft hands and a nice jumper is worth a flier and a roster spot, particularly when they are low drama. The NBA also drafts on potential.
Most of you guys didn’t see what Clint Capela looked like two years ago when he was playing 5 minutes a night behind Dwight Howard. Lighter than Yurt, decent hands but still not as good as Yurt and absolutely no real shot/offensive game other than dunks. Two years with John Lucas have turned him into a solid NBA center with a developing offensive arsenal. Yurt has a way better base of skills to build off of because he can shoot and has range on his shot. That is the hardest thing to teach a big guy.
Didn’t see this coming. I was told there wouldn’t be any more face palm transfers after GOTT left.
You can also bookmark this entry. Yurt will make at least $50 million playing pro ball. The stretch 4/5 is the difference in the great pace and space offenses in the NBA and the wannabes.
The west regional was essentially UH vs all of the hated rivals in our household (A&M, Cheaters, Meeechigan) until the Coogs got bombed Saturday night. I got some dirty looks for cheering for the Aggies.
I don’t always agree with Golden Chain but he hit the nail on the head here. The current system – where hundreds of millions legal dollars are distributed to coaches, athletic departments, conferences and the NCAA, while offering only scholarships to their highest producers ( the same they offer a volleyball player who generates negative revenue) – is exploitation at its finest. Now, just because most of the time there is a lot of gold at the end of the rainbow for the most valuable producers doesn’t mean it isn’t exploitative.
If the NCAA and schools took the high ground and didn’t seek to maximize the revenue from these kids it would be one thing. However, they are the critical cogs in a system that seeks to extract every penny they can from these kids before they move on.
The NBA appears to want to do the right thing. The NCAA should follow suit. Allow underclassmen to declare for the draft and opt out if they don’t like where they were selected or who selected them.
And by the way, schools – it would probably be a good idea if you decided to admit kids on their academic abilities rather than their athleticism.
I wish somebody would have exploited one of my kids and paid for their college.
At the half… In a defensive struggle — 28 all…
Cougars holding their own against the Wolverines…
Calls are now going all Meechigan. Coogs need to dig in
Steve Lappas to Pitt? He looks like he’s a good listener.
All in with the Coogs! Beat Meeeechigan!
Nice season. I’ll always like this team and how they came together and covered each other’s back. Next year will be interesting again with a wholesale turnover of the roster.
Thanks for making the game conversations fun. Now it’s time to pull the Coogs through to San Antonio.
four on Beverly Three terrible trips in a row. We are hanging by a thread
Seton Hall is just bad enough to keep this interesting. Too bad the zebras have been so whistle happy on both sides. This could have at least been better to watch
four on Markell
