2008-03-14 20:40:06  Message  MRasor0200  Tommy Evans Lounge   i think you have to keep the starters minus wood in the game until it's clearly over
2008-03-14 20:40:22  Message  MRasor0200  Tommy Evans Lounge   clearly over, to me, means you'll bet your house with 1,000-to-1 odds
2008-03-14 20:40:59  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   how's the crowd?
2008-03-14 20:41:47  Message  MRasor0200  Tommy Evans Lounge   pretty good

2008-03-14 20:51:48  Message  MRasor0200  Tommy Evans Lounge   linhart grabbed a huge offensive rebound
2008-03-14 20:52:23  Message  MDZip  Tommy Evans Lounge   Its been fun, but in some ways I wish I was still in Ohio. Plus if I had ESPN full court I could be wathcing this too.
2008-03-14 20:52:52  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   ya, even though i really like pittsburgh, i often wish i were still in the akron area
2008-03-14 20:54:30  Message  ziptrumpet87  Tommy Evans Lounge   you won't recognize it when you come back here with all the building going on
2008-03-14 20:54:38  Message  akronad  Tommy Evans Lounge   By the wa, live chat is great!!!!!!!!!!
2008-03-14 20:54:51  Message  MDZip  Tommy Evans Lounge   When the Zips played Maryland in soccer a few years ago in the NCAA Quarterfinals I went to the game. That was a lot of fun and it cost $7. I was at the Patriot Bowl and UConn this year for football and I really want something for Basketball this year.
2008-03-14 20:55:46  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   i love the live chat!
2008-03-14 20:56:18  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   i was a student at UA until 2005 and have been keeping up online...i look forward to riding my bike around campus this summer
2008-03-14 20:56:22  Message  ziptrumpet87  Tommy Evans Lounge   way better than the thread on the msg board
2008-03-14 20:56:28  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   agreed
2008-03-14 20:56:39  Message  MDZip  Tommy Evans Lounge   I actually came back to Campus last year when I was around for the Patriot Bowl. When I was there (I'm geezing) I was in the honors program (by the way, they used my likeness in an ad that I was never compensated for :)) and all we had was a study room, not a full dorm. I was blown away by all the changes on campus. I love it.
2008-03-14 20:56:46  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   the soccer team has a legitimate chance at a national championship
2008-03-14 20:57:11  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   i just wish i knew what was going on with the soccer stadium project
2008-03-14 20:57:49  Message  MRasor0200  Tommy Evans Lounge   you guys comfortable now?
2008-03-14 20:57:52  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   the end of this game is eerily similar to our last game against kent
2008-03-14 20:57:59  Message  MRasor0200  Tommy Evans Lounge   true
2008-03-14 20:58:24  Message  MDZip  Tommy Evans Lounge   Saw the soccer team play that weekend too (against UAB). Dambrot and Brookhart were sitting right with me supporting the team. I thought that was great. Talked to Jeff Boals for a while, he struck me as a great guy even if he is a Bobkitten alum. :)
2008-03-14 20:58:51  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   the way last year's championship ended last year, i will never believe it's over until it's actually over
2008-03-14 20:59:30  Message  MDZip  Tommy Evans Lounge   Yep, never too comfortable with two much time left, but I still think the odds are way in our favor.
2008-03-14 20:59:44  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   again, i thought that last year
2008-03-14 20:59:46  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   here we go
2008-03-14 20:59:54  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   8 point game
2008-03-14 21:00:36  Message  ziptrumpet87  Tommy Evans Lounge   run the clock but make the shots
2008-03-14 21:00:53  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   easier said than done...just ask kent
2008-03-14 21:01:26  Message  MDZip  Tommy Evans Lounge   Slow it down, take a good shot. We don't have the same clock operator as we had for the Miami game last year, do we?
2008-03-14 21:01:38  Message  ziptrumpet87  Tommy Evans Lounge   hope not
2008-03-14 21:02:14  Message  MRasor0200  Tommy Evans Lounge   hah, i don't know
2008-03-14 21:02:23  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   our youngerster have really stepped up the past two games
2008-03-14 21:02:39  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   youngsters
2008-03-14 21:02:57  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   bodes well for the end of this season and going into next
2008-03-14 21:03:02  Message  MDZip  Tommy Evans Lounge   Come on, end this thing .... (yeah it'd be nice to have that edit capability like on ZNO)
2008-03-14 21:03:34  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   see...eerily similar to the end of the kent game
2008-03-14 21:03:36  Message  ziptrumpet87  Tommy Evans Lounge   a few rounds in post-season will help them too
2008-03-14 21:03:43  Message  MRasor0200  Tommy Evans Lounge   ceddy might be hurt. he hasn't played in a while and he's limping
2008-03-14 21:04:03  Message  MDZip  Tommy Evans Lounge   Heady play by Roberts.
2008-03-14 21:04:27  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   ceddy needs to finish the season on the court
2008-03-14 21:04:39  Message  MDZip  Tommy Evans Lounge   For him and the team.
2008-03-14 21:05:01  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   i'd love to see him redeem himself from last year in a single, dramatic moment against kent...he's earned it
2008-03-14 21:05:19  Message  MDZip  Tommy Evans Lounge   I'd settle for a blowout where he gest 20. :)
2008-03-14 21:05:34  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   i think we all would, but i'm being realistic
2008-03-14 21:05:42  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   i don't see any way that we blow out kent
2008-03-14 21:05:55  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   they won't blow us out either
2008-03-14 21:06:23  Message  MDZip  Tommy Evans Lounge   I wouldn't count Miami out either, but I don't care who we get, it'll be a tough final.
2008-03-14 21:06:28  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   23-9...not bad
2008-03-14 21:06:59  Message  MDZip  Tommy Evans Lounge   Brett has really stepped up.

2008-03-14 21:07:41  Message  trimmy10  Tommy Evans Lounge   i'd love to see that
