Re: So About Those Free Throws...

If I were to rank the issues from last night, free throw shooting probably wouldn't be in the top 1,000.

They could have gone 15-for-15 from the line and they still would have lost.

Re: What do these schools have in common?

If the Rams don't make it this year you can add Northwestern to this list. They just took down Wisconsin and essentially locked up their first bid in school history.

Re: 2016-17 Bracketology

There was no relationship to what the NCAA decided and CBS's bracket. That's just one man (Palm's) opinion. Is there an echo in here? You made it sound like Palm's opinion meant a lot more than just 1 man's bracket projections. Doesn't mean more, but nice that it was part of a nationally televised ...

Dan will work Jarvis back in slowly imo.......whenever that is. Agree. And with Dowtin playing well, he'll have the luxury to take his time knowing that the backup is playing pretty damn well right now. Also, an argument about which of URI's two good guards is better is a nice place to be, I suppose.
