Re: 2021 Season

Historically, Danner 2.0 has surprised me on the collegiate scale and even somewhat (impressed) on the "national" level. However, Porter is simply better than him on every scale....imo. Porter is having a great year. Something to consider is that Porter, at 23 1/2, is a year older than Da...

Re: 2021 U.S. Men's Senior Nationals

There is nothing wrong with LB doing what they do. They should take the best talent they can get when it is available. It may not always work out, but worth a shot. Why not? It worked for the Raiders in the 70's. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/646766-the-1970s-oakland-raiders-tales-from-the-da...

Alika is playing for LBSU.

Stream worked great on NBC when I watched GRE and Hungary,
Now it’s not working!! The games already started


On the plus side, Table Tennis seems to be working, so there's that silver lining. :roll:

Re: MPSF Winter 2021 Schedule

Kudos to USC for livestreaming all the games played there. There were some hiccups, but overall I was really grateful to be able to watch all 6 games.

So far it looks like Stanford is only boadcasting their own games. Does anyone know if there's any effort there to make all the games available?

Re: MPSF Winter 2021 Schedule

The announcer in the UCLA - CAL game had his issues, but he did call FBV’s name (as: Vilma) and number several times for UCLA including a goal. Was he mistaken? The announcer was wrong. Felix did not play. The announcer had the teams reversed for some (all?) of the game. Felix is #13 for UCLA. The ...

Re: MPSF Winter 2021 Schedule

It now looks like Cal will stream its games this weekend, but not the USC v. UCLA games. That's unfortunate. Does anyone know why Matt Kacura isn't playing for UCLA this season? https://uclabruins.com/news/2021/1/21/mens-water-polo-no-3-ucla-opens-2020-21-season-at-no-5-california.aspx What on eart...

Re: Likelihood of winter season?

I was cautiously optimistic about having a winter season a month or so ago. Now I don't see how it can happen. Here's the chart for where we are as of today in California. A chart that's distressing on innumerable levels: CA.Covid.Nov.png Given both the trend and the status quo, I don't see how we ...

Re: FINA junior world tournament

I'm sorry, but you're not going to get any "props" from me. Again, every year it seems as though we can "pick-off" a country that's ranked higher than us...so what. Our destiny is 5th-9th spots. It's the way it is. Oh, and let us not forget, that Serbia isn't even at this tourna...

Re: FINA junior world tournament

Yes, I know... Still water polo is played there just at two seaside cities ( Budva and Kotor) each with population about 50,000 I guess... This is why my original optimistic 100-200 guess got shrunk to 50 max. Not much different with other age groups. At 16-18 some kids obviously stop. You've overe...

Re: FINA junior world tournament

Congrats to the team! Should bring some confidence back. Playing on the second- third day with a huge jet leg ( as was the case against Italy) is always very hard... Not to dampen the enthusiasm but I probably would not be that much off if I say that a total of one hundred 19-20 year old kids play ...

Do you think the Italians complain this much on BBP every time USA BasketBall routs the Italian basketball team? Or if the Italians are this quiet when they come up with a big win? Come on, how about some props for our boys for beating Montenegro 11 to 9? They looked great today. Well done, boys! K...
