My biggest takeaway: notwithstanding the profanities, Christian Hernandez is a FANTASTIC leader and motivator. Some of those pregame speeches (Emory, in particular) gave me goosebumps. Hearing speeches like those would make me want to run through a brick wall for him. It's no wonder the team voted him captain. I wouldn't be surprised if he found his way into coaching.

One thing I found funny, if not surprising: the younger Russo (who is featured extensively around halfway through the video) sounds just like his eldest brother did when I knew him. Same way of speaking, tone of voice, etc.

I played with Lee and you are totally right their tone of voice (i.e., sarcasm) and cheeky smirks are identical. I find it interesting that when Lee came in he tried to please all the upperclassmen, whereas it sounds like the younger Russo has ruffled some feathers (in a benign way, of course). I guess we can chalk that up to youngest v. eldest dynamic differences.

^Kudos to Case Western Reserve on their hard-earned victory.

At one point, I had the CWRU softball game running on my IPad, Cleveland Cavs playoff game on the tv, and was keeping an eye on the CWRU women’s doubles national quarterfinal on my phone. Wife said I had to tone it down...

No, I'm fine continuing to draft.  I do more research when I have time and less when I don't.  I've just been trying to keep it moving.  I'd like to see how many rounds we get through and, honestly, at this stage, we're entirely unsure whether a guy who averaged 10ppg and 2 rpg last year will be better or worse this year than some other guy who averaged 8ppg and 4 rpg.

I've made some strategic decisions and I figured I'm going to draft at least 3-4 guys from ENC (which isn't a bad choice, since they play up-tempo and are moving to a less competitive conference next year), so why not do them.
