Guys. We are starting to get hyped as legit contenders. Perhaps we need to stop talking Spanos and start talking more about our potential champions. Go Aztecs!
awesome this is happening. When is the next game?

In honor of your thread and request I've stickied this thread, just as I did the thread on the football forum. I think as things progress and if the Aztecs continue to roll and run the table and go into the tournament as a top seed we'll see even more posts and interest generated on this forum. This is big big news for SD if things play out that this team has some sort of chemistry that is special. And it's a year where there is no major juggernaut supposedly so maybe the Aztecs have as much a chance as anyone. Why not us???? My only regret is there is no major sports complex being currently built in MV to include a major league/college sports arena and also a professional/college football stadium. SD deserves it. We deserved a better owner than spanos who could afford to take the risk to build the complex, develop the surrounding land, and was loyal to the city such that he/she wanted the best deal for San Diegans for all sports and events. Just imagine, a Final Four that could be played one day in MV in a sports arena and the Aztecs being in contention to play the championship game in their hometown. Whoa. Dreaming is fun sometimes. I just wish Joseph Tsai had been the owner of the bolts instead of the numbskulls we got stuck with.

So far, it is back and forth from the Aztecs being way ahead to the Aztecs being in a tough game.

I’m gonna say this now and get it out of the way.

if the Aztecs don’t finish undefeated and get that number 1 seed, it’s the same ol same ol.

Feagin is fine. Draining threes. Unfortunately, Air Force has a first-time starter who we can't seem to stop.

Wetzel and Mitchell, two of our most important players, are on the bench with foul trouble.
Our offense has been getting it done every time the Falcons get close. But, then, we slack on defense and let Air Force get right back in the game.

I am a relatively new basketball fan. Has this inadvertent-horn/clock issue been an issue before?

Looks like we got this one. It wasn't one of our better nights, but we still will likely win by double digits.

What I learned tonight is we should be rooting against Gonzaga.

In other games, did y'all see how the Duke Blue Satans and the North Carolina Bar Heels game ended? I really like this basketball sport.

This is the second consecutive bad offensive start for Malachi Flynn. Hopefully he rebounds and dominates like last time.

It just sucks ass that it looks like the Aztecs will be put in the east bracket.

Next game, tomorrow at 2 at Boise State. Hopefully the BSU basketball court is less headache inducing than their blue football field.

No kidding. I absolutely HATE any game played on that stupid blue turf......what I cannot comprehend is how the NCAA allows that schit to even occur. There should be some standardization of football fields and that should be one of em....green effing turf even if it's fake as hell. Another peeve of mine,,,,even allowing anything other than real grass turf. And domed stadiums piss me off too. Play in weather you pussies. End of rant. (for now lolz)

The other thing I'm not too sure about is how baseball fields can be so different across the board. Should there not be a standard dimension for all baseball fields???? Then at least you have accurate comparison re: homers etc etc by teams in the league and players in the league. The only exception would be Coors Field which is played at altitude. But the Donkeys play on a regulation football field and no one seems to care too much that kickers have record days there. Or that players get gassed there. Getting off topic and off the sport, sorry. Just curious as to how stuff isn't fully standardized.

In baseball it has been traditional to have different dimensions, simply because ballparks used to be built in neighborhoods. I kinda like it, the basepaths and pitching mound are standard dimensions, the only thing that differs are the fences. A good defensive outfielder can account for the differences, but it also adds to the home field advantage.

I don’t like the Coors Field altitude advantage, but they have mitigated that somewhat with placing game balls in humidors. It’s amazing Hideo Nomo threw a no-hitter there in the 90s.

Keep baseball fields different. Ban football domes.

Dig a ditch for Coors Field.
