Yes, we frequently play midweek games against lesser non conference local opponents.  Most major college teams do.  You play your fourth starter, and (hopefully) have a chance for an easy win, though sometimes it backfires and you lose the midweek games (didn't  we struggle last year?)

Sure.  That's why Stanford plays SCU (currently 1-5).  All time record vs. SCU is 136-79-1.  Easy fodder...;) :-\

Spiny, you were correct to suspect I may have gone through the Jeopardy process...

I will be on the episode on Tuesday March 7th!  We taped back in the last few days of November but I've held back on announcing anything until a couple weeks of the airdate.  I was actually in the contestant pool for this week's episodes too, but did not get called up until the next day (which in terms of episodes is the next week, since they tape 5 a day).

- I tried to post my picture with Alex but apparently it's too large!

You beat the odds just to get on the show!  Fantastic! Sorry I did not know when you taped. I live two blocks from the studio and love a good reason to go watch a few episodes.  Retrospective good luck!

I think we'll be called a #3, unless we lose the first game, no matter what happens.  Because a 2 playing a 7 on the road looks a lot worse than a 3 playing a 6.

The CARDboard / WBB: Stanford RPI 8
« Last post by 81alum on Yesterday at 11:33:50 pm »
We moved up from 9 to 8 in RPI despite losing to OSU.  OSU is 4, Washington 7, UCLA 10.   The AP poll has us at 10 and OSU at 6. 

An 8 would normally mean a two seed. 

Here is how I see it:  If we win two or three games in the Pac 12 tournament we will have a 2 seed in the NCAAs.  If we win 1 we will have a three seed.  If we lose in the first round we could go to a four seed. 

On the other hand, I never thought there was much difference between a 2 and a 3 seed, since if they win out they have to play each other.

As referenced earlier in the thread, the C.al Poly game was a bit of an anomaly. Initially scheduled to add an extra game on the way back from LA on Prez Day (get extra at bats without missing school), it was rained out and played on Thursday instead as a "home opener " of sorts.

Further evidence that not only the football team but the entire athletics dept should get the NCAA death penalty.

After riding in a street legal golf-cart taxi, refused to pay, hit the driver, rode off in the golf-cart, crashed it, and was arrested for DUI. All in Scottsdale, AZ.
