  1. All this talk of preseason rankings, after getting bounced in 2nd round and losing so many seniors? I guess I like the optimism. πŸ˜‰ Do any of the guys have a chance of approaching Wes Clark in terms of making plays? A playmaker who can also pull up and shoot... was worried about that all year, and the lack showed against TT.
  2. Soooooo... He already interviewed, with UNLV? Sorry I'm not as optimistic about what this shows as you all are...
  3. "Yet another year"? Uh, they won it all last year, and you're dogging them because they're (relatively) down year this year, but they still did as well as our beat year ever (both 6 seeds bounced in 2nd round)? Huh. πŸ˜‰
  4. Yea... But one team knows they have a great program that'll be back, whereas we're still partly in the hoping for the best mode...
  5. Disagree with this - this is part of the reason some of us "complaining" about some of the ugly games. It goes to prep and focus. You can't be on all the time, but you can't have some of the (relatively) lazy, ugly games we had and say we were prepping well.
  6. Drama much? They're talking about the team. You're bitching about them. Constantly. In multiple threads. And not just the schedule, but how people feel about the play, fans leaving early, etc, etc.
  7. Give it a rest bro. It's one thing for people to be frustrated with the team - we're here to talk about them after all - but your constant complaining about how other fans don't live up to your standards of fandom is ridiculous.
  8. LAX is further from san than long beach and sna both. Where you thinking of staying? If you really don't want to rent a car, I think the Disneyland express may be your best option. The major shared shuttle is super shuttle. I hate that thing.
  9. Public transport, you'd be taking the flyaway (or shuttle to light rail) to Union Station, then transferring to metro rail. Definitely not the fastest. Cab and Uber would obviously be comparable. There are also supershuttles (and alternatives), along with Disney shuttles. Me, I'd rent a car. Why lax instead of sna? That much cheaper? Also consider long beach - jet blue flies there, so might be relatively inexpensive.
  10. About 35 miles. But that's the wrong question for LA - it's anywhere from a half hour to a couple hours drive. πŸ˜‰

  12. I'm on this forum, so by default, I follow more than most. I agree - all the other mac schools are the same to me, in that I don't care about them, at all, other than Kent. and that's only because I have a co-worker who played football there so I can give him shit. 😜
  13. Ha, no, you don’t get to double bookkeep like that. Sure, engagement may be related to outcomes, but they have an engagement category, and a separate outcomes category that presumably takes into account any outcome benefit from engagement. So no taking extra credit for tracking engagement because it leads to better outcomes, when outcomes are already tracked.
  14. i think the difference is between existing fans and building a fan base. someone who comes because they're a casual basketball fan, but not a ub fan per se, is probably not going to be as psyched about watching a blowout of an inferior team they've never heard of.
  15. https://www.timeshighereducation.com/USmethodology2019 https://www.usnews.com/education/best-colleges/articles/ranking-criteria-and-weights eh. can't say that reads like it definitively focuses more on outcomes and successes more. i'd argue that the factors listed under 'outcomes' in the timeshighereducation bucket are weighed less than the equivalent bucket in us news. i.e. i'm not convinced you're not just picking the higher ranking, but that's ok. ;D
