Re: Pandemic thread

Of course not. But insurance companies are the single biggest reason for inflation, because no one realizes they are paying as much as they are. In other words, care centers inflate prices because they know the insurance companies won't examine things that closely. As a result, the supply companies ...

Right now the Valley has three really good teams and then there's everyone else. Robbins leaving Drake is a huge blow. I wonder what happened.
I could see him going to Iowa or another Big 10 school.
Iowa had a spot open up yesterday, for reference. ;)

Dang, Radigan. Glad you survived. Hope they paid the price. Criminal in my case got 6 months, out after 3. Had lots of prior stuff but nothing violent.

No, Lake Camelot, you're not alone. Yeah Leitao isn't sexy, but he won there before, and it's one of those slow and steady gets it done situations. The arrow is trending up there, even if people don't see it.

Re: Pandemic thread

Everyone would have failed in this situation.

Sometimes, something just gets you. This is one of those times.

To believe otherwise is completely naive. Even the experts have been surprised weekly with this thing.

Re: Welcome Sean East!

Probably a comparable situation to Scottie James. . .obviously dude could play. But it was the wrong school at the wrong time for him. Obviously could've helped us, but we still got better, and he became a stud for someone else. It happens, but it was a win-win-win for all 3 parties.

Re: Welcome Sean East!

The bizarre part about the UMass situation is it looks like in the highlight reel, he was dynamic enough and could play anywhere on the court. Just because he would stand to lose minutes at point, he seems like the type of player that could have been slotted over to the 2 or 3 and been able to contr...

Re: Welcome Sean East!

I’ve read multiple places that Sean will likely get a waiver and will be eligible to play immediately. Anyone know why he is likely to get a waiver. It won’t be a waiver when the NCAA allows the one time transfer exception in the June vote. Technically, I believe a waiver is still part of the proce...

Re: Welcome Sean East!

Must be our Indiana connections again. If he gets a waiver look out. We will have a team. What are the odds of a waiver? Based on his tweet it sounds like he’s expecting to sit out a year. The NCAA in all likelihood will be eliminating the sit-out rule beginning next year. At least that was the cha...
