@ClayTravis The thing with Zombie Deadspin, aside from whatever you think of their opinions, is that their writing is just poor quality. Old Deadspin, love them or hate them, had actual wordsmiths who could craft a good sentence.
I now feel bad for criticizing Lebron for being such a big shill for the Chinese government. The dude just needed some cash. Gotta feed the family. twitter.com/ChrisFedor/sta…
@LegalMovesOnly Let’s be honest. There will always be more McCaffery brothers. The true number is indefinite.
Hunter Dickinson has to end up at Iowa, doesn’t he? He’d be the third McCaffery brother.
@CthulhuElderGod @BrianSimsPA @JasonLaCanfora This is so transparently tendentious that it can only be trolling, either for pure attention because you are lonely or because you are just an ignorant anti-semite. Either way, I no longer wish to engage with you. Have a nice life. If you tweet at me again you will be blocked.
@CthulhuElderGod @BrianSimsPA @JasonLaCanfora In the modern era, everybody on all sides callously compares their political opponents to "Nazis" because they they think "Nazi" is just a synonym for "bad". Republicans think YOU are the Nazi, do you realize that? The effect is to greatly trivialize the real Nazis. Do better.
@CthulhuElderGod @BrianSimsPA @JasonLaCanfora Let me know when Republicans huddle millions of people into tiny ghettos and then systematically rape the women. Let me know when they enslave millions in labor camps where victims are worked to death. Let me know when they murder 10+ million in death camps.
@itsyabo1ddmf The pitcher having to hurry to avoid the clock running out isn't a tactic, it's just stress. I've explained this to you three times. If you don't get my point by now, you never will. Have a good evening.
@itsyabo1ddmf Here's where you misunderstand my point. Even if there are no delays of the game there are STILL tactics woven inextricably to the clock: When a team substitutes, if a team hurries to the line, if a team intentionally runs clock, if a defender tries to time the snap, etc.
@itsyabo1ddmf We all stare at the play clock as it's ticking down. Eyes are attracted to motion. And MLB wants a world (and likely will have a world soon) where zero pitchers are called for violating the pitch clock. It's supposed to be 100% invisible. The clock will tick down to no effect.
@itsyabo1ddmf Please explain the new tactic or strategy driven by where the clock is. What is a player doing at 7 on the pitch clock that they're not doing at 2?
No, because football is a clock-based sport, and the clock is a huge part of the strategy and tactics of the game. The baseball pitching clock should be in the background, to the point that you ideally get through an entire game without it being referenced. twitter.com/itsyabo1ddmf/s…
I'm really not at all a fan of the ticking clock on the screen. Human eyes respond to motion, so people are just going to watch the clock instead of watching the catcher and batter as they prepare for the pitch. twitter.com/awfulannouncin…
@Ceitinn2000 @BrianSimsPA @JasonLaCanfora Sorry, but as a Jew this is too much softening of Naziism. Do yourself a favor and read a book. Start with something basic like one of William Shirer's classics. But I don't have time to wait for you to learn. I'm blocking you.
@Ceitinn2000 @BrianSimsPA @JasonLaCanfora No they aren't, you disgusting anti-semite. Nothing anybody is doing in 2023, not even the Chinese concentration camps for the Uyghers, are remotely on par with ANYTHING that was done by the Nazis in the 1930s. I weep for our educational system.
@SidewaysCat @BrianSimsPA @JasonLaCanfora At least you admit you refuse to learn what happened during the Holocaust. Go away now. If you tweet your hateful rhetoric at me again I will be forced to block you.
@SidewaysCat @BrianSimsPA @JasonLaCanfora I strongly recommend you watch a documentary about what the Nazis did before you compare ANY modern country or political party to Nazis. Watch a 30-minute video on the Holocaust and you'll be deeply ashamed of this tweet.
@Ceitinn2000 @BrianSimsPA @JasonLaCanfora Hitler was also a vegetarian, yet surely you can come up with better arguments against vegetarians than comparing them to Hitler.
@taylorwmj I'm old enough to remember when Wisconsin fans like you wanted Bo Ryan fired because he was a "regular season coach" who always crapped out when they played good teams in the NCAA Tournament.
@BrianSimsPA @JasonLaCanfora Comparing your political enemies to Nazis is disgusting. My wife's grandmother went to Auschwitz. Have you no shame?
Wisconsin has literally won 2 of the last 4 Big Ten regular season titles. They're doing fine. twitter.com/taylorwmj/stat…
Wisconsin missed 15 of their last 16 shots of the game.
I am endlessly mystified by national sportswriters who don't understand how salary caps work. twitter.com/SharpFootball/…
Keep quirky stats like this in mind when drawing narrative conclusions off similarly sized samples. twitter.com/DavidWorlock/s…
The nation’s best conference (by far) got zero teams into the Final Four while the Mountain West and Conference USA each got 1. Another reminder, if you needed one, that the NCAA Tournament is a terrible judge of conference strength.
@dms66 LOL. I legit cannot believe people still believe this sort of nonsense in 2023.
Jon Scheyer *played* in that game for Duke.
Gonzaga finishes with an effective field goal percentage of 35.0% and a scoring efficiency of 0.77 PPP. That makes this their worst shooting performance AND worst offensive efficiency since a 35-point loss to Duke on December 19, 2009.
@eisner_ryan No, for several reasons: 1) Why Top 4 seeds rather than Top 5? It's arbitrary. 2) 20 years was presumably chosen because of all those early years as a 7-10 seed where, yeah, no shit they struggled against 1-2 seeds.
