a little upstate trivia....

Washington ties the record for most losses by an NT champion with 9. who did they tie? Brandeis and their 9 losses in their season 27 title.

the upstate is 3-0 in NT final games

Predictions...

Washington had one of the best runs of any team i have seen since i started playing the sim game. Beat 5 ranked opponents in 5 straight great coaching by him. I hope i can get back to NT it might be rough with the squad i got this year they lost in 2nd game of exhibition to a team in the 480's.

they didnt look that hot in their first game, but i think chicago cleans house come conference time.... and i'd expect taz to get back to his comfort zone (sweet 16 or better)

as for the north, i was going to say skidmore runs away with it, but with a huge opening night upset, i gotta throw St Lawrence in the mix.

This will be an interesting season to watch. Lots of good records with less than good SOS's, hopefully the RPI's will drop in a hurry.
5/29/2009 4:29 PM
Thanks for the nod marco, but I have serious doubts this team makes the sweet 16. I know the SOS looks terrible, but there were some decently talented teams in there that I have no idea how we won. Rebounding is terrible, as is LP play in general. I'd take a .500 conference record right now and run w/ it.

uhhh. that was last season's prediction. which you surpassed by winning the NT

as for this season, chi-town gonna struggle a tad with 6 freshmen

OK, this was just hilarious. Thread on dumb mascots. First it calls out the Yankees mascot (apparently there was one--briefly before he was beaten up), then several major colleges as well as our own Upstate teams New York University and Brandeis, and the one that made me blow hot coffee out of my nose, the Rhode Island School of Design (figures--sorry if anyone is an alumnus and admits it). Without further ado:

nice. i dig the owl, actually.

I have a professional colleague who was the Duke Blue Devil in 1984.

If they have the "Big Red" from WKU, and the "Orange" from Syracuse, how the heck did this guy leave off Xavier? They've got 2 mascots, 1 a big blue unidentifable thing called the Blue Blob that rivals that of Big Red from WKU. Tandem that up w/ their traditional Musketeer mascot named for another "elite" french fighting force and you've got the Tandom of suck when it comes to mascots.

I've heard of the Rhode Island "Go Nads" before, but just assumed the Nads was a shortened version of something else. How in the hell does that pass by the board of regents at Rhode Island school of Architecture and Interiors or whatever its called. I know Architects and Interior designers/artists can be a little out there sometimes, but you'd think somebody would have put the nix to this prior to inception (Pun intended :)

My Alma Matter (Dayton) has a real winner as well, in Rudy Flyer, basically he's mister potatoe head dressed as a World War era flying Ace. Seriously, he's Mr Potatoe Head w/ a body, kind of funny, but at least identifable.

There's a picture floating out there in cyberspace that I've seen before of an early version of Brutus Buckeye, which was essentiall the Syracuse Orange mascot painted to look like a Buckeye Nut. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to learn the Orange bought the outfit from OSU when they dropped the "men" part of their mascot name in the 90's, dropped in a barrel of Orange paint and called it a day. Talk about mailing it on your mascot.

Always like the Banana Slug mascot, at least the name anyways, and you've got to love Bevo & UGA no matter who you root for.
