    Looks like one PAC12 team is in the field of 64

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    These camera angles from the drones are terrible. While they may be good for film study, they make it nearly impossible to see fouls, travels, etc.

    THIS ^^^ I feel like I bought cheap upper deck seats. Which reminds me there were quite a few Utes in the upper deck of the T-mobile. Occasionally I would glance up and notice they were all watching the game almost exclusively on the video board - since it actually showed a normal camera angle.

    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Are you kidding? That dude running their Twitter account deserves a promotion, a raise, and to see a real life naked girl.

    He's been gold.

    Nah. There’s funny. There’s salty. And there’s funny and salty. That dude is mostly just salty.

    Must be a matter of perception. I think he’s funny.

    Good stuff UMBC Twitter. The interaction with Seth Davis cracked me up. “Virginia. Sharpie.”

    I know this is my constant rant but I swear I will never understand benching players for foul trouble.

    Tennessee has one of their best players Schofield get his 4th foul so they bench him — “Gotta sit him” the announcers agree. While he’s sitting Loyola’s win probability goes from 70% to 95%. Uhh... most games aren’t decided in the last few minutes.

    Have you read "Scorecasting"?

    They make the same point and back it up with data. Really interesting book.

    Really liked items 27 and 28:

    27. If your school is here despite not playing big-time football, add 10 points for resourcefulness.

    Score: Loyola 200, Villanova 35, Michigan 20, Kansas minus-5.

    28. If your school is cashing huge football revenue checks without adding a cent of gridiron value to its conference, deduct 10 points for stealing.

    Score: Loyola 200, Villanova 35, Michigan 20, Kansas minus-15.

    It's weird, I know the intellectual history of this (I think):

    Dick Thaler used to rant about this back in the day (as least as early as 2001 in a Behavioral Finance course I took from him at UChicago) -> Toby (coauthor) was a young faculty member at Chicago back then -> eventually makes it into scorecasting.
