From an article on the UNC vs Duke games...

I didn't see it but I've been told that ESPN showed a graphic during a game on Wednesday night that contained a truly crazy statistic. Here it is: In the past 96 games between UNC and Duke, both teams have won the same number of games (48) and scored the same number of points (7,437). The skeptic I am, I went back and checked and yes, those numbers are accurate.

Yes, the 96-game mark is a little arbitrary but, still, how wild is that? The first game of that 96-game stretch was on Feb. 26, 1977. UNC defeated Duke 84-71 in Cameron Indoor Stadium. Starting with that game, these teams have been exactly even with each other Ė points, wins Ė for the past 40 years.

Thatís pretty insane, when you think about. You donít see that sort of back-and-forth competitiveness too often in a seven-game playoff series in other spots. Now try playing 89 more games over 40 years.

If Oregon just thunders UCLA, and the other 3-4 ahead of them look shaky, I'd expect to see Oregon jump 2-3 places, possibly replace Villanova. There will also be a lot of noise that if we falter, lose one, or even look real shaky ourselves, Oregon will be the Number one seed in the West, maybe the 1 seed in the tournament, and we'd get shipped out to the Midwest or South.

Oh, and I'm not saying it would be right or justifiable, just typical homering for a BCS school over us.

Oh come on. Oregon is a small market no name team. I said on here earlier today that they'd wind up 15-3 or so in the league, and Zona would probably take the reg season. And they'd have to win 5 on 8 tonight, which they couldn't quite manage. Vegas knows what's going on, and that's why UCLA was 5 pt fav, not because they;re better.

If the Zags are to get screwed over, it's gonna be for the big market team UCLA, or the other name team in the league in Zona, not the nobody small town ducks.

That said, Ducks did shoot themselves in the foot by taking the air out of the ball too soon.

If I didn't know you so well as a good friend seatmate at the games I'd almost find that combative.

Oregon may or may not be a small market team, but from what I see on the media, whether it's Nike-pdriven or whatever, they are perceived as top top team in money/ratings etc in football and basketball. Perhaps I am wrong. But, had they won big (and they didn't, they did fall apart) I sense the desire to at least talk-up a BCS team pushing us aside as perhaps not the strongest team going in.

Anyway, I said perception, not play, and it's now moot.

Is Rose not obligated to resign tomorrow after a game like this?

Some might point to this as evidence that the WCC isn't as much a walk in the park as thought to be, but they are more likely to simply use it as proof of how bad BYU is capable of playing (despite looking awfully good against us) though there's no wrong answer to that discussion.

How can BYU lose by ten to the Zags, and nearly twice that to Pepperdine?

The Ducks were a #1 seed last year and they are Nike's flagship school. That may be more of a football than basketball thing, but still. If GU remains undefeated thru the regular season and WCC Tourney it would be awfully hard to not give them #1 seed in the West. If the Ducks win the Pac 12 regular season and conference tourney, they will get some strong consideration for a #1 again, albeit maybe they'd get shipped out of the West.

seacatfan
02-10-2017, 12:24 PM
I watched a fair bit of Oregon-UCLA (flipped back and forth between the GU game--kinda boring I thought). UCLA didn't roll over and die after falling behind big early unlike a certain other team I root for. Fought back from double digit deficits a couple times. Then late in the game the Ducks went cold and it looked to me like they panicked, started taking some REALLY bad shots. Pac 12 race is still very much up for grabs. Can Arizona avoid stumbling before the finish line? If UCLA beats 'Zona in Tucson that will make it very interesting. Cal is tied for 3rd w/ UCLA at the moment but doesn't really seem like they are in the race w/ UO, UA and UCLA.

BYU-ha! Being in the WCC seems to be killing them. They were so much stronger of a program before they left the Mountain West. Don't know what happened exactly, but they just keep getting worse.

Fewer Catholics in the Mountain West? Yeah, I've seen plenty of remarks on the Cougar board about Catholics...lol.

Were they hungrier in the MWC...or is it the lack of rivalries that BYU is facing? Who knows?
