Do you like anything tonight ????
If Tariq Owens didn't get banged up , I would have pounded TECH 


I was rooting for Baylor too

I haven't watched a lot of games this year, but I think I would go under 118.  Both teams are going to be nervous and both teams like to slow it down, I think neither team gets in a rythm.  Maybe under 1st half would be better.  I know this is no help to you because you would sooner light yourself on fire than bet an under...

If Jack doesn't leave now, she'll be in Buffalo another 5+years (unless the Syracuse job opens up)  I think she only stayed around last year to coach Dillard another year.  She only has 4 upperclassmen returning, and 3 of them were benched at various times last year.

What did you do?  That was a very good game.  Baylor probably would have covered easy if Cox didn't get hurt.  IMO and with hindsight, Baylor was 6+ points better than the field this year

Coach Jack is interviewing at Georgia Tech now.

"We got him at a steal imo paying him almost a million less than avery."

The most UB could come up with was 800K/year, and 200K of that was from boosters.  UB's football team loses 6 mil/year and the MAC TV contract pays peanuts.

Bryan Hodgson did all the recruiting for UB along with Oats and he is going to Alalbama.  Oats also is taking the strength coach.  It looks like the rest of the coaches are either staying in Buffalo or going elsewhere.  There is a good chance Oats takes with him a player or recruit or two...

Wow , I have to put a hundo + down for the DEGEN homer fun right ??

I think the 14.5 you saw was probably a 1st half line.  If UB had a better start and hit some more 3s they could have pulled the upset (they were 100-1).  Uconn definitely was tired in the 4th quarter.  

Nate Oats did UB a big favor signing his extension because it has a 750K buyout.  That is a lot of money for UB...

I give Coach Jack a 50/50 chance of leaving too.  If Tennessee offers the job, there is no way she can pass that up.  Georgia Tech is also open, but I think the Penn St job may be where she goes.  That isn't too far from her home in Syracuse.  We'll see...the next two years look like rebuilding years, next year there will be only 4 upperclassmen on the roster.

Also, you are smart to pass on a lot of games.  If you bet $10 on them, you'd go 8-1 and that would mess with your head.

WGR hung up on me yesterday after I called and on air asked them why they were pretending to care about UB hoops, when they spent 8 hours a day breaking down the Loser Sabres and what hypothetical off-season moves they'll never make .    


What do you think of the women's team today ???


You forgot the 6 hours a day they spent on fantasy drafts for stuff that has nothing to do with sports, or did they stop they doing that?  I haven't listened in 10 years...

I liked UB to beat Rutgers.  Hemphill is playing unbeleivablle.  Too bad they have to now play UConn on their home floor where they won 120 straight games...You are way better off being a 11,12,13, or 14 seed  than 7,8,9,10 because you avoid playing the 1 or 2 seed on their home court to get to the Sweet 16.  This year there are 7 teams that are all way better than the rest of the country...

I like CMU today -2.5 over Mich St. Game starts in 15 minutes or so...

1st half - underdog has a lot of adrenaline and favorite doesn't take them serious

2nd half - coach yells at favorite in lockerroom for 10 minutes and they make adjustments.  Underdog gets tired.

Great start, most years you are digging yourself out of a hole after day 1.  Keep it up...

UB bandwagon is getting pretty full, I hope they shoot the 3s good today.

"On Monday Ohio was down 17 with 40 seconds left and intentionally fouled. There is NO WAY to explain that as a head coach."

That wasn't an intentional foul and the coach didn't ask for it.  He was going for a steal,

UB Women are -17.5 at home vs a bad Bowling Green team.  Bowling Green beat UB a couple weeks in a game where they hit every shot.

UB is playing their best ball of the year and I think they win this game by 30.  They just beat the 2 best teams in the MAC East by 25 and 30 points.

UB is on the bubble for the NCAAs and need to keep winning by large margins.  It is a little bit of a letdown spot with Senior day being their last game, but I think the revenge angle makes up for it.

I like the 100's behind the benches , it's fun to hear Housley rip the Sabres a new one as they come off the ice ....

The 200's on the between the blue lines have fantastic sight lines .....

Either way you'll have a great time ...

Sounds good.  I noticed if you wait til the day of the game, the ticket prices are really cheap, except for the Leafs and Rangers...

I'll be rooting for the Bucks in the East.  I see they made a nice pickup in Gasol - probably won't get a ton of PT but he probably played more playoff game than the rest of the roster combined...

Hey DoubleUp, I am going to take the wife to a Sabres game before the season ends.  Are the 200 level seats the best seats in the house?  Was going to get first row , center ice,  200 level on Stub Hub.  We want good seats and also want to stay away from drunks.  Any advice?

Mesh router worked very well for me. In addition to what Lippsman said, they use 2 different frequencies which helps if you live in area where there is a lot of interference from other people's routers, microwaves, etc.

Isn't the limit on a single bet?  I think you could bet $500 a day for several days and be OK.  You may want to ask.  They can move the line if they need to.  Not much difference between 1 guys betting 5K and 10 guys betting 500, as long as they get a chance to move the line between each bet.

Unless you sent it to yourself, you have nothing to worry about. 

I give it a 75% chance of going through.

25% it is confiscated

5% they arrest your friend when he signs for it.

3's

They made several rule changes all benefiting the offiensive player.  

No longer any post players or "true" centers

Coaches don't have any power any more to force players to play defense

No more hard fouls to discourage layups/dunks

Huge contracts for anyone who jacks up enough shots to score 12 PPG.

+300 and +240 are crappy odds
