    So, Miller Kopp to Indiana? THis transfer shit is getting stupid. But I'll certainly welcome a 6'7" dude who can shoot the ball.

    **** AAU....Its a joke. I haven't worked AAU in years. To much of a risk for a guy like me. Because look---had dude spit on me? Well,yeah, ummmmm I;m throwing a punch. Not some half assed, little phone smack. THEN---I lose my NCAA license...my HS license...My NAIA license. And probably go to...

    Ref/Parent Scuffle

    Damn, skippy. Its why I stay far away from AAU. Its a wreck. Horribly managed for the most part. Most of these tourneys, especially smaller ones, they are just getting whoever to officiate. Its a problem. Its exactly why I stay away. I have to much to lose. I swing on some idiot for spitting...

    Ref/Parent Scuffle

    Its why I haven't done AAU basketball in 10 years...****ing idiots. AAU used to ALSO be an avenue for officials...Not anymore. I do a tourney every year in Jasper, Indiana, called Jammin in Jasper. Its for school teams only. Very well ran. But AAU is a ****ing nightmare. Most officials have very...

    I doubt he plays very much at all.

    IMO its more of a getting to play for Holtman---a coach he knows, a system he is familiar with--opposed to playing for a new coach, who obviously has different offensive plans that really doesn't fit Joey's appeal. Or ability. Not a bad move on his part. Wish the kid a ton of good luck. Loved...

    2 things I would change about CBB

    Meh....Not being a part of something, doesn't mean you should be. I really so no benefit changing to quarters...

    2 things I would change about CBB

    Block/charge IMO is one the most difficult calls to make. I mean sure it looks easy, peasy when we see it in super, slo-mo, from 14 different angles. I also think a lot of it has to do with some just not understanding legal , defensive position...I chuckle when I hear a Jay Bilas say, "well, he...

    Don't care for the quarters....Keep it as it is. Not sure how TV woud play a role in this, either.

    2 things I would change about CBB

    This rarely happens...What people think they see, opposed to what they actually see, are often quite different. Jumping straight up is often done by a defender taking a step forward, THEN jumping straight up---which is illegal. That is usually missed by a casual fan. Its called "A to B"...

    2 things I would change about CBB

    Foul trouble is part of the game. Just like missing FT's, shots, turnovers, etc, etc...those impact the game just as much. I don't have an issue with 6 fouls.

    Possible Rule Changes.

    Do not like eliminating 10 second, or the 5 second closely guarded. I hated it when they eliminated the closely guarded on the dribble. THought it was dumb. Do not like the FT choice, either. Its dumb. I do like the 6 fouls. IMO, it keeps your better players on the floor---esp in the first...

    Just think this has become an accepted practice.....Same with a lay-up.. Dude drives to the goal, releases the ball, returns to the floor, and the defender then hits him; usually due to momentum. But nonetheless, a foul gets called, and FT's awarded. I've called non-shooting fouls in such cases...

    Nutting wrong with that, as long as you are able to keep your hand on top of the ball..

    Should UCLA hang Final 4 Banners?

    What point? UCLA was the favorite entering every tourney during that stretch(7 straight) 1964: 26-0, ranked #1 entering the tourney. Finished 30-0 1965: 24-2, ranked #2. Beat #1 Michigan in the final. 28-2 overall. Then came the streak.... 1967; Started the season #1, and finished that way...

    For baseball, and for me, man it was Scully. Iconic voice. Of course always enjoyed Marty(Brennaman). Longtime Reds fan. Basketball--Local flavor was Cawood, and of course, FIsh at Indiana. Cawood was legendary, IMO. And one of the very few who could remain non- biased. IMO, announcing...

    Should UCLA hang Final 4 Banners?

    True now...Not true when UCLA won 7 straight. They were clearly the best team.

    Will Mick Cronin Prove To Be UCLA's Best Coach Since John Wooden?

    UCLA easily could have lost to MSU----in a play in game. MOF, they should have lost. Anyways, they got hot. Made a terrific run. But even then, I don't see him being anywhere close to Howland. You can get "lucky", and get to "A" Final FOur. But you did not get "lucky", and go to three straight...

    The travel looks legit. I watched it a few times. Seems when he caught the ball, his right foot is his pivot..Steps with left, then right again, with no dribble. Intentional foul call was tough....Not sure I call that. It was hard to see though. But from what I did see, looked like a time to...
