Yeah, I doubt we will land Stone. Although, I have heard he is real tight with Bronson Koenig (Luke said that, I think?) and he will surely get quick significant playing time as we have no big men once Berg leaves.... besides Frank Kaminsky. :D

The sequel to the carrier classic games: 4 games being played simultaneously inside the Cowboys Stadium.

If college basketball's mad scientist has his way, the 2013-14 season will begin with a Texas-sized tipoff.
I spoke with the scientist, Mark Hollis, during a break at the IMG conference. Besides being Michigan State's athletic director and a rookie member of the Men's Basketball Committee, Hollis is the creative soul who came up with, among other things, the Carrier Classic, which pitted his Spartans against North Carolina last year aboard the USS Carl Vinson. I approached Hollis because I wanted to know what his next big idea was. As usual, he did not disappoint.

The details aren't finalized, but here it is: Next year on Veterans Day weekend, there will be four -- count 'em, four -- games taking place simultaneously at Cowboys Stadium, site of the 2014 Final Four. The games will begin 15 minutes apart and be held side by side (by side by side) in the giant facility. The purpose is to simulate the madness that takes place during the first week of the NCAA tournament. Only instead of the games taking place in four different cities, they'll be played in one town, under one roof.

"We're going to squeeze everything into a three-hour time period," Hollis told me. "We're talking with eight institutions right now that have a very high interest and have that weekend open, and we're going to partner with the 12 [military] bases that are around Dallas, so we can make it a celebration for the guys at Fort Hood and others."

Hollis didn't want to get into which schools would be playing, except to confirm that Michigan State would be one of them. The idea came to him while he was touring the stadium last month for the unveiling of the 2014 Final Four logo. Cowboys Stadium is so massive (and its overhanging video screen so gargantuan) that Hollis wondered aloud whether they could have four courts instead of one for the Veterans Day tipoff. "I was sitting with Rolando Blackmon, and he said to me, 'You can never do that,'" Hollis said. "Someone barked out, 'You just told that to the wrong guy.' "

As for the logistically-challenged copycat games that the Carrier Classic spawned, Hollis said he thought it was unfortunate that two of those had to be canceled because of condensation on the courts, but he indicated that it was the result of limited advance planning. "We spent eight years planning the first one," he said. "We started in sunlight and had a warm court, which was the most important piece. If you're anywhere near the ocean, you're going to get condensation at night. When President Obama was late, our immediate concern was about condensation. It was unfortunate those games had that happen, but hopefully it won't be the end [of aircraft carrier games]."

Having developed a deep passion for athletic events that honor and include the military, Hollis, who also arranged for Michigan State to play UConn at Ramstein Air Base in Germany last month, said that he's hoping to continue setting up these games "at some other unique locations down the line." Mark Hollis doesn't just think outside the box. He lives there.
See y'all in Texas.

Gonna hit the first part of my parlay today unless it goes to like 10 overtimes. O/U of 116 on Towson/Georgetown and taking the under was one of the easier bets I've ever made.

Brueser out with a concussion. Does this mean Dekker will finally get 30+ minutes ?

Should we make a separate thread for UW vs MU? Seems like a big enough game to make a separate thread.

If i'm Buzz Williams, i'd sure hope not.

In past season Marquette wanted a higher scoring game, in the 70's or 80's, but with their lack of consistent scorers, i could see them preferring a more ugly scrapfest type of game in the 50's or 60's.

Lack of scoters don't make a difference. They still want a high pace high scoring game. Where their lack of scores hurt them is in the half court. Jamil, blue, and junior are all guys whom like to push it but suck in half court settings. The last thing mu wants is a close game where they have to score out of set.
Finley on pace for: 51 receptions, 780 yards, 7TD Iceness predicted 35-55.

Shabazz Muhammed reminds of Xavier Henry with less maturity.

Does that include the team, media, arena employees, etc.? Because unless the other side has significantly more people, there can't be almost 3,000 people in those stands.

That photo looks like a practice. Coach on the floor, players in warmups, etc. I'd imagine it filled up a little more before tip off, although not much apparently.
