    If any of these bracketologists were actually on the selection committee this might be relevant. Laughing

    ....when we're talking about Blockhead, I can't imagine anything looking like an actual intelligent thought or functioning brain in that dome of his.

    The best time is to catch him pooping in chimneys.

    The guy is a serial chimney pooper. I think that's why he got in roofing.

    Haha, no shit? That's great. So it really was all about his hurt feelings.

    Just looked it up.

    From today’s ruling:

    Perceived missteps in the public eye these days all too often unleash torrents of anonymous online hate. One can hardly blame the victim of such onslaughts for wanting redress. Or blame him for taking aim at the only members of the mob with faces: pundits like Jones and like Franklin who at times took too much glee in reporting on the misery of others. But a gulf lies between commenting on harassment and causing it. And in that respect, the First Amendment protects the rights of sports radio talk show hosts just as it protects the rights of presidents. Those who step into the public limelight, even temporarily, must face the hazard that sometimes comes with it. Should they find a commentator’s discussion of their foray into public life unsavory, they cannot easily “cry ‘Foul!’” Monitor Patriot Co. v. Roy, 401 U.S. 265, 274 (1971).

    Well at the least we have not lost 17 games this year.

    This year the NCAA can't give UNC a two seed in Greensboro!

    Oh wait! Maybe a 3 seed in the region where UK is a 5.

    If Evansville kills Kentucky's chance at a 3 seed, what does Wake's win over Duke do to Duke's 1 seed?

    Not a close case. Nonetheless, the court had a very slight admonishment for Jones and KSR:

    All of this means that Kentucky Sports Radio’s communications fell short of incitement. Even so, “a few words” about common decency are in order. United States v. James, 328 F.3d 953, 957 (7th Cir. 2003). Kentucky Sports Radio knew, or surely should have known, the volatility of the situation. One can cover a gasoline spill without adding needless sparks. Even with the platform to make a difference, the station did more to fan the flames of discontent than to extinguish them. The Constitution protects that choice. A conscience must do the rest.

    What's most ironic is that Matt Jones has to be thankful for a case where Trump was sued as the precedent that got the case against KSR dropped by the Court of Appeals. Sounded like it hurt him to have to admit it.

    Duke isn't getting a 1, but their loss to Wake is Quad 2. Kentucky's loss to Evansville is Quad 4.

    Lol. This wasn't a close case in 1850, let alone now. The Trump case was a high profile case with modern technology, but the underlying principles are firmly established.

    You are one of the funniest posters on here, if not the funniest.

    Given the chance, I'd completely give you the common curiosity of a reach around.
