Are you predicting your score?

Yes, I should have projected more than a average week score of 308.

Lambert didn't play against Utica last night. Assuming he doesnt play tonight as well. So if he does play I will keep Lamberts game against Sage tonight but here are the two games I will add instead....

1. Simmonds against Colby for today.
2. Kingland game against Carleton today.

Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving.. and today. Hopkins at Mules. My personal paradise, coasting up I95 north to the Mule Barn for a matchup between my two favorite Centennial squads. This is the one day a year my wife lets me get out of dodge for a weekend, (No hall pass though). Though I don't love what this blog has become I have recently contacted fellow user Red to head up to A town with me. Here is what Ill be looking for in todays game.

1.Jake Browns coaching- last time the Mules came down to Hopkins I noted that I couldn't necessarily tell if the play calls were coming from Hopkins or Brown. Mardukas nominated Brown for coach of the year the other day and I'm interested to see if coach Hopkins has become a more vocal leader of his squad.

2. Mike Morreale- Mules freshman appeared to be hurt last game and I didn't catch him in a box score. Assuming this is injury and not suspension? haven't heard much about his character but we all know the discipline problems the Mules have had in the past. I hope to get to see him play, very athletic and the closest thing youll get to a sky walker in the Centennial.

3. Mules vs. Doran: This seems like a matchup that defensive liability Rindock will be in charge up with a potential reinforcement form freshman center Spencer Duke. Doran has been working on his post game whenever I head to the nest for practice. This could pose an issue for the Mules. RIndock theoretically should be able to stop him but it all depends on Brown/Hopkins game plan. Havent seen enough of Duke yet, seems like a versatile player I would compare him to Joe Ingles of the Jazz.

4. Mardukas vs this forum: This guy is a lunatic and I am glad I will get to see this game in person for myself, so I can decide for myself what I think of this rendition of the Mules team.

What a day, what a day! Ill post my thoughts later tonight. Go Hopkins!

The past two games we've seen Calvin's rather inexperienced, up-and-down team alternate between what they might become (an impressive demolition of Trine last Saturday), and what they sometimes are (the meltdown against Kalamazoo on Wednesday). The Knights are currently neither as good as the former game displayed, nor as bad as the latter one did, but which extreme are the Knights likely to be closer to when playing against a good Olivet quintet this afternoon?

If it wasn't obvious before, the decision to keep Derrick DeVries on the bench most of the second half against Hope was a huge mistake. He's just too valuable to Calvin's offense to let him sit that long, even if he isn't a great defender. Since the insertion of the former Covenant Christian Charger into the starting lineup nine games ago, the sophomore has been in double figures every contest, and has averaged more than 18 ppg over that stretch. Also, even during the Kalamazoo loss, I think I detected the beginning of a team desire to put the ball in Derrick's hands down the stretch in a close game. Knowing who you want to go to in those situations is always important.

May want to have a look at the schedule  ;)

That's what a person gets when he takes goodknight's word on a topic.

Very impressive win by Bard, especially clawing back after Skidmore built a decent lead....beware of Bard

(Giant spit take for comedic effect)

Welcome back to LL Thunderdome, gang.

No one has commented on this, however, I know you guys have been busy discussing all those other interesting topics as noted in the above several posts.
Anyway, it is that time of year where there are many coaching  changes for assistants, especially right  after the annual national coaching convention in January. Did you see where Tom Arth recently lost three of his assistant coaches at Chattanooga as they took full time assistant positions at Kent State under the new HC Sean Lewis there? I know you guys don't think much of Kent State, however, maybe, just maybe their DIII experience will be able to get that program some improvement/respectability just like the other DIII guys ,especially the OACershave done  at Iowa State and Toledo (Campbell, Candle) and also former 'Bash HC Creighton at Eastern Michigan. Thoughts anyone?

I saw that he lost his DC to Kent State but didn't see any others had followed. Not sure about what it will do for the improvement at KSU. I guess being more local a lot of us are aware of just how big of a dumpster fire KSU has been and how long its been burning. It may take a few more years than Campbell at ISU to turn it around. Matt had some real talent at ISU that was not being used and found a way to tap that for a jump start. I don't know what KSU has in the cupboard. I mean Bowden took over at Akron and its taken him what 6 years to really do anything.

I'm a little disappointed that Point continues to have their games so late. I guess that's what I get for working Sundays for double-time. I saw the other 3 games have 5 pm tip-offs and that would allow me time to head to Point and get back at a decent hour before waking up at the crack of dawn for Sunday work. Yeah, yeah, I used to do that back in the day, but that was before I was married with a kid...and I was 10-15 years younger. I suppose now I can lock the kid in his bedroom with some juice and a box of Goldfish for 6 hours and watch an out of conference game at 3, a WIAC game at 5 and the Pointer at 7...

I always preferred playing at 7. Something just didn't seem right playing earlier.
