      Yeah, just watched highlights of Ayton, and crap, he will be hard to deal with. Here’s hoping that Buffalo gets insanely hot and pulls off the early upset!

      Middle of the SEC pack Mississippi State beat Nebraska with a decent Big 10 record 13-5.
      State totally dominated Nebraska in the paint, and we handled their big guys.

    • LET’S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      C-A-T-S, CATS CATS CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So what are the odds that any victories that Arizona gets in the tournament end up getting vacated because of Sweaty Sean?

    • runningunnin.454

      Don’t know what they paid for Ayton; but, he’s worth every penny.

    • ukjaybrat
      10:57 am March 15, 2018 Permalink

      depends on who he paid and how many games they played. Technically sean paying a player only makes the player ineligible.

    Quiet on here today – I guess everyone is driving up to Boise, listening to KSR.

    So wasn’t Boise where “Napoleon Dynamite” was set? Maybe Pedro can make all our dreams come true. πŸ™‚

    Remind me what I need to do about these ads? Is it just called Ad Block? New computer, forgot how ridiculous this website is.

    Tired of people saying they’re worried about tonight. I know this team has been inconsistent, but they deserve more credit than that.

      Yeah,but I remember one of our Final Four teams having problems with Princeton…took a last second shot to beat them.
      Of course, Princeton made you pull your hair out…especially way back when there wasn’t a shot clock.

      Davidson played both UNC and Virginia this year, and lost to both.

  8. A quick thought about that article about the players in the G-League and playing overseas: first world problems.

    Okay, maybe third world depending on which country you’re playing in. I get that it can’t be fun like the bright lights of the NBA or even big time college ball, but lots of people would like to have their jobs. Also, some of those guys left too early (esp. Orton) and have had attitude problems (Orton). It seems like he’s better about that now, so maybe he’ll catch on with an NBA team that needs a big body. I hope they all do! We’ll see.

      I get what you are saying, but I wish some of these kids who would benefit from another year or two in college would listen to these guys playing in the G-League.

    • Absolutely. I know some of them probably can’t increase their stock with another year, and Willis stayed all 4, but Briscoe looks like he’s slimmed down some. Maybe if he had done that at UK and come back, he would have gotten drafted.

  9. I’ve been listening but been busy at work. Have they said if they tried a Basque restaurant yet? Or one of those famous breakfast joints?

    Close game at North Carolina i think, not sure about Virginia.

    • J-Dub421
      11:15 am March 15, 2018 Permalink

      They lost by 10 to UNC, and lost by 20 to Virginia. Davidson has also lost to Hawaii, New Mexico State, Richmond, and Appalachian State. Just sayin’.

  11. secrick

    I think i get more nervous on games we are suppose to win than on the ones that are even or not favored. This one for sure because of that dumb butt that said Davidsons coach was a lot better than Cal.

    So Nick Richards has bad hands? Does he have short stubby little fingers like Trump? πŸ˜€

      RCF, they talked about your favorite type of ads! πŸ˜‰

    • Well, I remember a commercial years ago where the ladies were giggling and said “I can’t believe we’re at a party and we’re talking about feminine protection! Giggle-giggle!” So there you go.

      My Twitter says that Nick has a problem that rhymes with Nick Fingers.

      Richards is just very raw. I can see the talent there, but he was never going to be a one and done. Nick is on the WCS path.

    • ukjaybrat
      12:00 pm March 15, 2018 Permalink

      lets hope it’s a very similar path (not just in years but talent growth as well)

    So Crean to UGA, huh? You know, I never disliked Crean, he was just so easy to make fun of. From all accounts, he is a really nice guy, and hearing that he can make fun of himself makes me actually want to like him and hope he does well at UGA. But that kissing his son on the mouth thing, eeewwww.

    • runningunnin.454
      11:23 am March 15, 2018 Permalink

      Did he take the UGA job? He was also being considered at Pitt.
      A Michigan man coaching at Marquette and in Bloomington…he’ll sweat like a fool in Georgia. Ha.

    • I’ve heard some folks say that the new coach there has to have recruiting contacts in the ATL. What about Ron Hunter at GA State? If you heard any of his interviews after their big wins a couple years ago, the dude is energetic, can talk and he seems like a GREAT guy. He was saying things like “I wish every dad could experience something like this with their son!” in interviews, and you could tell what he thought of his kid that had made the big shots.

    • J-Dub421
      11:37 am March 15, 2018 Permalink

      I don’t really have a problem with Crean. He seems like a nice dude. He’s just kind of a goober and really easy to make fun of, plus I hate IU so that played in as well.

      I’d love him in the SEC, because he’s such a doofus It would be constantly hilarious. Except for Martin and Pearl, most of the SEC coaches are really dull.

    • runningunnin.454
      11:56 am March 15, 2018 Permalink

      Listening to Crean on espn has given me new respect for him…his analysis is usually spot on. Much better than Bilas, Vitale, or Walton.

      RG you could add Anderson to that list, but he’s just so hatable because he has some beef with cal and uk
