    Then they should just remove the backboard all together or do you have to call it before the shot? :p I get what you're saying, but luck plays a part in games and I don't think it should be removed from it... ;)

    We're not trying to measure luck though, by playing basketball. We're trying to measure skill. If you want to mess around with luck, play roulette. I think the glass is great for getting crafty around the rim (heck, even out to 12-15 feet). But beyond that, it does nothing but generate randomness.

    Plus we don’t need another clock stoppage to see if the shot hit the backboard first.

    Luck is when preparation meets opportunity. If basketball was only skill they wouldn't need to play the games. Toughness, both mental and physical, heart, teamwork, physical fitness, and a whole lot more go into basketball not just skill. I get your point, but can't concede to it. A little randomness that the teams have to overcome, is an added part of the game, I don't want taken out of it. ;)

    Peanut M&M's.

    It's not that they aren't delicious, I just try to avoid them otherwise because they aren't good for me, haha.

    I will forever be fascinated by the range of processing powers from one human brain to the next.

    Im depressed lol. Looking ahead Im excited for the class coming in. Anyone know if we have a foreign trip this summer or is that next/ I was just curious it would be good for all the new guys. I would hope by that time all the stuff going on now is done. This will be a long long summer.... might start some golf early this year.

    Hell golf is canceled for the next 5 weeks. We literally have nothing, nothing to do other than watch people die and catch up on 90210 re-runs.

    I’m glad they’re handling it like they are, but I thought fanless golf may be the one sport to carry on. You’ve essentially got independent contractors who aren’t forced to play anywhere and a game requiring near zero contact.

    But I know the decision is really about the travel and for the sake of the production/course/Tour employees.

    I would be a fan of them still doing a NCAA selection show for the tournament.

    I know the games won’t be played, but it would be a nice season reward for teams know what seeding they earned.

    That's why I think racing will be the only thing to soldier on. The travel piece is minimized by the use of RVs and the teams are already wearing protective suits of sorts. But California canceled IndyCar's Long Beach race for it, so maybe racing won't continue either.

    This is how Lunardi thought it would shake out—6 BE teams. Interesting matchup for the Dawgs with possibility of the Golden Brothers facing off.

    I wonder if the golf courses will be empty or packed this afternoon/weekend?
