Re: The Drake Game

Stronger also does not make smarter. Jordan would murder players in the league today.. And Jesse Owens...wow I mean, should we start talking about all the advances in training since then?

Re: The Drake Game

Sorry I am not that old so I never saw him run. I can say that the great BU teams that played at the Fieldhouse were every bit as fast and athletic as the teams of today. I will also state that one of the best athletes ever that also played for BU was a player that could have played professional fo...

Re: The Drake Game

It is not harder if you go further back when there use to be just 2 refs. Those guys never had the luxury of having TV timeouts. The athletes back then were just as fast and athletic. The reason why these officials struggle is because most are just too old. The ones that call so many fouls do it be...

Is anyone in the least concerned these guys either aren't playing or aren't playing quality minutes right now?
They both are playing a lot of minutes in their league season.

Re: The Drake Game

To be fair...officiating is harder now than it has ever been. The game is faster. The players are bigger, faster and stronger. The skill level is amazing. If officiating were that easy more people would do it. It is not harder if you go further back when there use to be just 2 refs. Those guys neve...

Ok. This is what I was looking at.

This was from September 16, 2018. So it was a Euro Qualifier vs. France that France won. It just wasn't the most recent one.

I think I could see where the mistake could be made...when you first click on the game, on the landing page, there's a giant button with the previous game score at the top right of the page, which would lead one to think that was for the game in question, even though it indicates as much (but in sm...

France, with former NBA player Nicholas Batum and Mustahpa Fall beat Finland by about 20. Finland plays again tomorrow vs Rus...

Re: The Drake Game

Now. I understand why the officials do as many games as they can. $1600-1800/game is great money. Wait. These idiots make this much money? Wow. I got into the wrong line of work.

Re: 2018-19 DI Hoops Coaching Carousel

Sad for the victim and family. Reading the details, looks like anyone could've done this. Nighttime, icy roads, car breaks down in middle (not side) of interstate, person standing in middle of road, car in front swerves, split second to react. Agreed. It’s been a nightmare of mine as a driver. Awfu...

Re: The Drake Game

The idea that a 55-60 year old guy can do a D1 men's game in Des Moines on one night, travel to Springfield, MO the next night and do another D1 men's game at a reasonable level is ridiculous. He can't be on top of his game that way. Speaking as a 55-60 year old man who works out nearly every day, ...

Re: Ongoing opponents thread

During our game with ISU the announcers mentioned and showed a group of five practice players that weren't yet eligible to play for ISU. If I recall correctly they were saying how this group of five was just as good as the current ISU starters. I don't know anything about this but, if true, ISU (an...

Right.

Re: The Drake Game

Not only getting the names wrong. But at times, getting the teams mixed up. They look down and see the number 23 and attribute it to DLO (whose name they never pronounce correctly even though he's been in the league 4 years) when really it was number 23 on the other team. It is a lack of base knowl...
