The ghost of Chris Webber

After reading PWD’s review of the Athens pod for the consolation bracket of the NIT, I was still excited that a big time, recent national champion team would be playing in Athens.  Then, I saw this.

I don’t know where to start.  TWO intentional fouls when the game is tied inside 30 seconds, one coming with one second left in the game.  Just looking at the video, it was easy enough to forgive the first intentional foul.  It came with 20+ seconds to play and it appeared to be one of those in the heat of the moment things by a freshman, who had just made a great heads up play to tie it.  The second one was set up by a bad play with the ‘Zona gaurd jacking it up from 18 feet, off balance with too much time on the clock.  Then, the UAB player gets the clanging rebound and turns to sprint up the court to try to heave a desperation three when he is grabbed from behind by an Arizona player. This guy gets intentionally fouled, in a tied game, behind the half court line, during a shot attempt. Very Reggie Ball, if you ask me (ohhhh, Tech zing I didn’t see coming).

Mike Davis’ team was out rebounded, out hustled and out played much of the game.  25 fateful seconds is all the difference.  At least it wasn’t the national championship game.

BBQ, Ball and Bets

There's nothing like a sunny fall afternoon, pork BBQ (with mustard sauce, of course!), a pregame tailgate, and...betting online. You heard me right. With a laptop and an internet connection you can check the odds of any game from the 50 yard line. Now that's convenience and will make your tailgate all the more interesting when some dude mentions just how much of a good bet a certain game is.
