3/30/2015 5:53:28 PM Here's the thing though, my original post said the Knicks and 76ers right now - meaning the starting lineups and teams right now.  If you look at the Knicks and 76ers rosters right now, these guys are borderline NBAD league players or a few days removed from playing in Europe.  Kentucky has at least 3 legitimate starters in the NBA - at least starters on crappy NBA teams. And look at some of the past Kentucky rosters; 2012 had Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, and Terrence Jones - all three are starters on good teams.   Who knows how good the Harrison brothers or Willie Cauley-Stein will be in the NBA.  My point is that the abilities and skills of college players are not that far removed from the pros.  That's why guys like Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins, and Nerlens Noel can go from being a freshman in college to a legit starter in the NBA in one off season.  Therefore, I believe if Kentucky played the 76ers or Knicks right now, they'd win at least 5 out of 10 games.  I don't believe the same is true between NCAA football and the NFL.  There are way more factors/players/skills/abilities involved there.  Ohio State or Oregon would get destroyed by the Titans or the Buccaneers every time. [/QUOTE] Even if Kentucky has three potential (not legitimate) NBA starters (and potential is always argueable), every NBA team has five "real" NBA starters. I wouldn't expect Kentucky to win any games against any NBA team and they'd struggle against D league teams. You're seeing Kentuckly play against other college teams, most of which have no more than one potential NBA starter. It's just a different level of competition. Using your examples, look at how Davis and MKG struggled initally in the NBA. Sure they had/have the talent, and they've grown and developed into quality players, but that took some time. The same can be said about the level of competition in the NBA, or any other professional league. There are always gonig to be bottom dewllers, but they are all peers. College players are not peers of proffesional players. College players are still in the early stages of their development, no matter how good they look against other college players.
1/9/2015 5:27:25 PM If you're mostly going to ride park stuff, go to Northstar. They have the most park terrain I've seen in the Tahoe area and they have everything from baby stuff to HUGE!! Seirra would be my choice if you were going South Lake. Boreal is a great, cheap alternative if you're intermediate, but you won't find "long" runs there. 
12/14/2014 6:48:30 PM You asked, you received - Buffalo 21  Green Bay 13.[/QUOTE] Ugh! Pretty ugly day all around. Hope tonite and tomorrow nights games are better.
11/25/2014 4:49:00 PM Run Forsett, RUN! LOL
11/18/2014 5:43:35 PM  Thanks for taking it easy on me.
11/5/2014 6:51:15 PM  Never too late to get started... even if it has to be on  250.
10/27/2014 5:23:09 PM I can't catch a break. Finally have a decent week and DCC puts up a Two Hundy buger on me. Ouch!
10/7/2014 5:08:12 PM Happened to me last week in another league. Chicago's D got me -3pts and I lost my 0.8pts. Brutal. I can't even comment on this league as I can't seem to manage a win even when I have a decent week.
9/26/2014 10:54:21 PM I can't get a handle on this league with just six teams. I'd love my roster in any normal league, but can't win a game in this one. Insane!!
9/9/2014 5:52:21 PM  Vote on the league page, not here.
9/6/2014 4:47:07 PM I posted a "vote" message on the league homepage, so go vote there for the additional roster positions.
9/5/2014 6:12:57 PM  Yes. "add 1 more flex spot" means adding a second flew spot. But you guys aren't following the rules on voting. I think DCC is voting for +1 WR spot, and +2 flex spots. I think L80 is voting for just +1 flex spot. Maybe I should put the vote thread on the league homepage so the other owners are sure to see it. We'll need at least four votes to make any changes. Unfortunately, I can't access the league page here at work (blocked by the IT overlords).
9/4/2014 5:51:53 PM  I didn't see this until after the draft, but I can add some roster spots if we all agree. I guess we can vote here: Vote Yay/Nay on each of the following (my vote included): add 1 WR spot (nay)add 1 RB spot (nay)add 1 flex spot (yay)add 1 more flex spot (yay) If we get four or more votes on any of these, I will add them if I can (probably for week 2).  I was about five minutes late and missed the first five picks. Fastest draft ever!!
9/3/2014 7:59:01 PM Not sure. I'd like to have at least 8 teams. I'll try to find two others.
9/3/2014 12:18:37 AM Changed the draft time to 8PM as I originally intended. Hopefully, we'll get at least two more teams signed up by then.
