Men's soccer / Re: Spring Games...Signs of things to come

Casualfan,
I believe you've got it mostly correct, although it's 180 minutes of competition.  So in a tournament setting a team could play 3 games of 60 minutes each, 30 minute halves.  I believe the playing has to be done in one single day, so a team couldn't play a full 90 minute game one weekend and then another full game the following weekend.

NPU smashed Carroll up in Waukesha, 19-13. It was basically what I expected, given that one team had an ERA barely under 7.00 and the other team had an ERA well over 7.00 going into the game. The Vikings probably had an uh-oh-here-we-go-again moment when Carroll started plating runs to cut into what looked like an insurmountable 19-4 Vikings lead in the bottom of the fourth. But as ugly as it got for the North Park pitching staff, a 15-run lead is still too big to blow.

The Vikings bats have been absolutely tearing it up over the past two weeks (three games vs. Illinois Wesleyan, three games vs. Millikin, two games vs. Carthage, and Tuesday's game against Carroll). Leadoff hitter Jared Cantu hit .439 over that stretch; #3 hitter Seth Dvorak hit .410 with 13 RBI in those nine games; cleanup hitter Anthony Bragg hit .537 with six doubles, two homers, and 13 RBI; and DH Tyler Woolbright hit .459 with four doubles, three homers, and 18 RBI.

        Hooah!  Corporal Hicks here.  Today I decided to start a new theme on this thread.  Ive been analyzing some historic NBA rosters and I think I would like to compare each "Cent" team to a historic team in the "Association. 


First Roster: The Red Devils out of Carlisle, Dickinson

NBA comparison: 1988-1989 Chicago Bulls

Mike Hinckley-John Paxson- Solid point to run your offense and tempo but still knows his role and lets the skilled wings make big plays in late time moments

Elijah Wright- Michael Jordan- Young but very talented 2 guard.  Has a ton of potential to star in the league if he can overcome some of the things standing in his way.....(Detroit Pistons)

Jule Brown*- Scottie Pippen-  Young but also very talented player.  With the likes of Jordan(Wright) they can conquer the big dogs. .....as for his future we will see where he stands @HopkinsNest7

Moses Romocki- Horace Grant- solid power forward for you not going to wow you by his play but he can get the job done.  Acts as the enforcer for the team

Justus Melton- Bill Cartwright- Good center relative to the league.  Will guard rim decently and rebound for you.  Not a liability for you on offense.


Team has a good deal of talent and potential if they can put it all together they can play with the best of the league and continue to contend for championships.

Corp. Out.

So did anyone catch the podcast? I kind of took issue with it in this sense, that because Texas as a host is untied with will not be able to match what Salem had provided. Now I know one of the answers the rep from Shenandoah gave was "Texas is football country" and that kind of ruffled a feather or two but lets consider this, by the time the playoffs come most of the players and families are well into the holiday plans and travels, yet I can say with some decent experience that as the Cru got deeper into the playoffs there were good to great crowds and many were not UMHB faithful. Here is what I mean
In three playoff runs while at the games I could hear the spectators about us, some on the phone and talking among-st themselves, talking about the game, they were not UMHB long term fans you could tell, one had to correct their contact and said "Not that Baylor the other Baylor". Many had heard about the game and brought the kids and such. My point is, and it is wholly anecdotal so it might negate any point, but, I think Texas CAN deliver a good showing and CAN deliver a great student and fan experience based upon the past playoff interest simply for the Cru. Obviously, for some reason Virginia had this event removed from their stewardship for at least 4 years, for some reason, NCAA has decided to look outside the area and liked what they saw.
Like I had mentioned in a post along time ago, I would think that North Texas and namely the Ford Center (The Star training center for the cowboys) would be an incredible venue, Indoor, same size seating as the stadium they now play in, minty fresh media capability and an international airport 20 minutes away. Shenandoh is a very nice location and on top of that it is also the DIII sight for Womens Golf.
So that is my rant, I'd say keep your eyes on Shenandoah and let's see what they deliver.

This is much more difficult than choosing a postseason league team.  I am not sure if I can use my usual UAA strategy.  I'll have to return tonight for my next pick.

I think he misspelled tomorrow LOL  ;D :D :)

Just giving ya crap, WUH

NCC rallied, but Wheaton held on for a 10-8 win.

There was an article in the April 6 issue of The Colby Echo about the AD resigning.
The AD will be leaving 6/30.Please read this article. He explains in depth the family issues. Nothing smells. There is no North Korean conspiracy.  Maybe I see things half-full, and you see things half-empty. You want the team to win all its games. I would like that too.
But it just isn't feasible. There are 9 other teams who want the same thing. Should 7 or 8 coaches be canned every year because their team doesn't win at least 6 of the 8 games? I sure hope not. There will be a new topnotch AD. Life will go on.
Thanks for the AD clarification.
