7 other Big Ten players, including guards much worse than DJ, made the Naismith Award watch list.

What a load of crap.

If we get to 70 (turnovers), I'm pretty sure it's a free Big Mac.

At least there's something to look forward to.

Was halftime when we were supposed to talk about contract extensions?

This was the Banks' foul



That's pretty egregious. It'd be one thing if it was chest-on-chest contact, because the dribbler is entitled to the path, but the flailing arm is inexcusable.

Pretty sure the foul was for the reach-in right before this. Still looked like a non-call to me, but a lot more understandable when you see in motion, not just the still.

Watching Nebraska give it away down the stretch. Their lead is down to 6, and they went a looooong time without scoring.

Why won't Teddy V give us a foul call?

Glad to see TV Teddy is calling questionable charges the same on both ends.

Why can't any announcers notice that there's no "d" in the middle of Shep's name? It even matches up with how we defend the 3 point shot, so it should be easy to remember.

Anybody following the podcast "Serial"? This would make for a good next case to focus on....

Seems possible, since Sarah Koenig lives if State College, if I remember correctly.

(PS-- I'm in the minority that think Adnan did it. This week.)

Apparently Chambers has to call Time Out 4 times and waste 2+ seconds before the whistle blows.

According to the scoreboard, Cornell is 100% from the line. Which is understandable, as most of those shots are better defended than their 3 point attempts.

Well, at least there's something for the highlight reel.

Wow, BT being in the game makes a huge difference.

He should be in for at least another 30-60 seconds before fouling out. #pessimist

You can at least be glad that, unlike me, you didn't come all the way here to watch thiis.
Not pretty!

Sadly, I can't. Where ya sitting? Perhaps we can commiserate together.

Wondering what DeanWormer thinks. I'd like to hear something positive right about now. Then again, I probably wouldn't understand because I don't know anything about basketball.

No ref watching the baseline on that last rebound. Thought he stepped on the line. Glad we got it back anyway.

No re-entry allowed, so I had to shell out for a ticket. Good seats though.

Thanks, Tom. Couldn't get the ticket website to load on mobile.

Anyone know how the ticketing works for to ight's games? Is it one ticket for both of them?

I ask, because I'm sitting at a bar a block from the arena, and wondering if I can just ask someone leaving the first game for a stub to get in.

I honestly thought Barack was going to be the Democratic nominee in 2006.

Considering he didn't announce he was running until February of 2007, I'm finding this incredibly difficult to believe.

I'm skeptical, too, although I was bummed that I simply didn't have any cash back when Apple was at $10.

But there was a groundswell of support for Obama well before he announced, so it is possible. I know I was on him to some extent well before he announced. Not sure I would have bet on him to get the nomination.


I started DraftObama.org in late 2005. By mid-2006, the press couldn't get enough Obama coverage. I was approached by reporters all over the world to talk about the draft movement. We had several tens of thousands of signatures on the website encouraging him to run. By November 2006, we had grass roots boots on the ground chapters in all 50 states organizing rallies, making signs, and raising money. We aired the first television ads of the presidential race in December 2006.

So, Tim is right that there was quite a groundswell going on well before the February announcement.

GSP -> IAD Aug 28

United Airlines 918
IAD -> LHR Aug 28

United Airlines 7655
LHR to DUB Aug 29

Got an email asking me to renew my season tickets.

Clicked on the "click here to renew" link. There's no invoice in my account for season ticket renewals.

Perhaps the email was a bit premature.

It does say perks this year are:

$20 worth of concession coupons
Free PNC Flex Book
One Open practice

I really hope this thing doesn't erupt. Until I'm in Ireland, I mean. I wouldn't mind so much being stuck there and having to work from my company's Dublin office. :)

Anyone else from the board heading over for the game?
