Yep,that seems to be the problem...betting more than they can afford to lose,and secondly...too much emotion spilling in here, regardless of the outcomes,have fave athlete,as Sweetness,who when he got the TD,calmly handed ball to ref,no excessive dancing around like ickey woods,or backwards swandive to endzone like Desean Jackson,or for that matter,if he got stopped at 4th and 1,from the one,he did not go crying to the sideline.Like Kent St,but i cannot stress enuff,compared to Nropp,I know nuthin.GL(in this sport,at least)

NRopp - you come across as a very mature, tolerant person - I am impressed!
 A truly wise man can  never be offended.
 He knows lies to be untrue and meaningless..
 And the truth he already knows or is happy to learn.

Keep it up!

And by the way...
I like using Ken Pomeroy's rating as one piece of data and here are some things I see today...
I think Valpo is undervalued at -9
and West Virginia is undervalued at -13
from what I have read you will find them too rich for your taste, but I am seeing more than 2 possessions of cushion in each.
What do you think?

From Day 1, I haven't stressed it enough. I love the game of College Basketball. I enjoy discussing it, I enjoy following it, I enjoy trying to find value in it, and I enjoy reading others thoughts on it. Unfortunately, value doesn't always yield winners in the short-term.

A majority of people post with goals in hand. To become a professional, to go tout, to make money by charging plays, to get their name out there, to be "God-like". I really have no goal in this other than to try and find value and discuss the game of basketball. It's as simple as that, and a big reason that I rarely respond to "you suck" or "i lost $5000 today" or "work on your capping." Any amount of money I win or lose will not change who I am or what I do. I have turned down multiple offers to be featured on websites, hired by others, get paid to do pretty much the same thing I am here. Those people who have offered have flat-out called me stupid. I am OK with that.

This is FUN for me. Nothing more, nothing less and it will stay that way regardless. Having the opportunity to discuss and break down games is an added bonus.

With that said, those "donkeys" as you call them, who girl and moan about losing, they can keep doing what they're doing if that's their goal. It doesn't bother me. The only thing I can offer to you, "the donkeys", is that if you have time to stop by and post comment after comment or track how those posting are doing on a given day, then you have time to sit down, take a look at the games yourself, and offer your own advice or discussion that can help everyone. If everyone spent just an ounce of their life in contributing in some sort of fashion, we would all be much better off.

nice hidden brag within that post... I doubt you have been offered by any "legitimate " websites to get paid to sell your picks.. sorry to burst your bubble

your not that special, sorry. keep thinking your God's gift to the Earth and keep losing like yesterday.

I don't follow your picks, and would always fade them before I tailed.

Seems to be written on a daily basis now. Looks like it is a 50% system. Same as sll of them. It is a good read when posted and I like it. Dont tail folks. But it is not anything special. And if you had started when he first posted, you may have made money. But if you started tailing a week, two, or even three back you LOSE.

Again, dont tail on a site... knuckleheads...

Nropp...you keep doing what your doing.  Your insights are helpful.  Always good from my end to look & tally & see what you and the 'top cappers' are considering on any given day on any given sports.  I whine and girl and moan like all the losers of the day, but I can honestly say its never at anyone's OPINIONS.  I have no one to blame but the teams themselves and MY LACK OF INTELLIGENCE in picking the wrong teams.  I can definitely understand those who piss and moan and whine because they sign on, don't do SOME homework, read a post, and place a bet then get aggravated when they lose.  I didn't think there were any such people in the world.  This website and the comments in your posts has definitely shown me different.  Yes I took it in the chin last night...yes I got my behind handed to me...but that is all my doing.....As you say...this is fun and it should be enjoyed.  Hell..as my Grand Papy Chief DRAG HIS BALLS used to say...."....if your afraid to lose, sit in your chair, close the door, lock the windows and wait for death to come because anyone can win...you have to work at taking it when you lose...."

GL TO ALL DAMN IT AND LET KICK SOME BOOKIE behind!

Thats a pretty cool statement you made Nropp.

I think you were just fine not ever mentioning anything though, they dont deserve any explanation. They are ponds in this game and it does feel nice to win people money and all, I enjoy giving as well, but they dont need any addressing/explanation ever.

It is impossible to win every day.  The season is a grind and it brings peaks and valleys.

The only advice I have for you nropp is it seems to me that Saturday is the most difficult day to cap and has been your achilles heel.  Maybe be a bit more selective than you are.

Keep up the hard work. Bol the rest of the way

Lets keep winning long term.  Like someone said, the hate comes from people who bet what they can't afford and have no money management.  They don't have a clue that they should have a # set aside for this and every play should be for a very small percentage of that #.

 

GL Ropp the rest of the season.

Lucky win. I believe kenpom had Wisconsin at a 1.7 point per possession in the 1H, which was the largest # of the season. Halfway through the 2H, they were at a 1.76.

To put that in perspective, they finished at a 1.50. Top game of the year came in at 1.53 (which also was Wisconsin, LOL).
