Collegiate Sports / Re: clt provides more UNC CHeat scandal.
« Last post by Nugget on Today at 11:27:06 am »
UNC-CHeat has responded to the third Notice of Allegations.
http://www.newsobserver.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/luke-decock/article152660089.html

The Duke Basketball Report reaction to the above article.  I reference it because it contains numerous links to other articles.

I never would have predicted the drama of what is likely to be an epic showdown where the NCAA actually fights for its credibility, if not its existence.  UNC-CH has pushed all of its chips in and could not be more defiant, seemingly eliminating the chance for a moderate outcome where hands would be slapped.  In a strange twist, it is being reported that Kenneth Wainstein, the author of the second report on the Tar Heels fraud has been interviewed for the FBI Director position.  If appointed, would he be available to testify before the NCAA?  How would that impact this case?  His report has the supporting evidence so maybe it is no big deal, but it is untimely.

Must say, impressive 2 games. Nice feeling for a change. We have a shot to do this. But of course I'm cautious as a NINER. 😜

Unbelievable effort by Laws!! Perfect game into the 7th, C-USA Tournament strikeout record of 14.  Offense was good once again.  It really couldn't have worked out any better for us up to this point.  We haven't had to get much into our bullpen, which is our weakness.

Laws and Brooks put together two of the best pitching performances of the year.  Now we get a day off, which is huge, and whoever wins today between USM/ UTSA has to beat us twice to get into the championship game.  All we need is one more win to win our bracket.

I imagine Patten will get the ball on Saturday, likely against USM.  He's got a tough act to follow coming after the two performances by Brooks and Laws.  At least we will be facing our opponent's 4th best starter at best.

Lets all root for a 17 inning marathon with a 21-20 final score in the USM game

Not sure who will be the "home" team and get to bat last, but that could be a big advantage when both teams are thin on pitchers. On the other hand, let's just have Patten pitch eight or nine shutout innings and be done with it.


Rice looms. I hope we make it to the final game, but, if not, Rice against Southern Miss would be a dandy of a game. Whatever happens from this point, our guys have exceeded expectations this season.

Duke Energy has been fantastic to the University.


This.  We need to ensure that they continue to see returns on their investments in our students.

I hope all the pro scouts who saw Laws struggle against Rice a couple weeks ago were there last night. Damn!


What we need now is for UTSA and Southern Miss to play about 22 innings today and we should be fine.

Laws sets CUSA tournament record with 14 strikeouts in 3 hitter Niner 5-0 win.

Niners play Rice in Winner's Bracket game on Saturday.


Do we play Rice, or do we play one of the teams that comes out of the loser's bracket?  schedule still shows TBD for both us and Rice.


Edit:  we play winner of USM/UTSA game it would seem

You are correct.  One format showed us playing Rice in the normal double elimination format, but it looks like this is more like 2 4-team brackets with the 2 winners playing each other in a single championship game on Sunday.......  Similar to the format used in Omaha but it has the 2 winners playing 2 out of 3.
