  1. I have not looked into the complaints, but all officers get complaints. My wife got a complaint for not ticketing two Hispanic guys that were drinking in a park by a Black woman who said that if they'd been Black my wife would have arrested them. So she made an official complaint against her, even though...you know....my wife was trying not to get into a useless confrontation.
  2. When my wife was a LAPD patrol officer (before I met her - our paths didn't first cross till she made Detective), she routinely had to deal with metal health cases. She told me more than a few times there were specialists on scene, but asked for the police to take the lead because they didn't trust the individual in question wasn't a danger to them. Seemed sort of opposite of what people might expect - the expert taking the backseat to the officer, but she said it happened many times.
  3. Like, never ask for a downvote or an upvote on this forum. You'll be downvoted even when people agree with you. 😁
  4. The Pit Crew didn't really start until all of them had already graduated.
  5. Mom went into Labor with my brother during that game. My parents left at half time. She was sorta upset they had to go. LOL
  6. Yes, it sold out once in 1977 against SMU. We have had some large crowds since, but never a sellout.
  7. It'll be tough to beat last night's game. I've watched hundreds, if not thousands of college basketball games in my life. That was in the top handful.
  8. USC and Auburn's basketball venues which opened in the last 15 years both seated less than their previous ones. Those were from the top of my head. Not saying I want the Super Pit replaced though.
  9. This is one of the better ones I've read on the growth of the Bulldogs' brand since the late 90's. https://sports.yahoo.com/whos-the-next-gonzaga-there-may-never-be-another-one-162836692.html The real (not so secret) secret is the continuity. I mean if Butler had been able to keep Stevens, they may have won a title by now and be just as much as a year to year power as the Zags. They were trending that way. Maybe the same with Loyola Chicago now with OU hiring their coach away. They're probably set up for a fall.
  10. Can't believe I left off Butler's two title game runs. They've really struggled since Stevens left for the NBA.
  11. Name the last Mid Major to win the title. Gonzaga is the favorite this year, but you have to basically go all the way back to UNLV to find one that has won the title. Memphis and UMass got close, but Calipari was involved with both (and each went on probation after he left).
  12. I mean, there's agony for basically everyone when a coach leaves. I remember how the Kansas board blew up when Williams left for UNC.
  13. Their all time win percentages are nearly identical (Smith 77.6, Williams 77.4). Williams has more titles and more overall wins. It's very close between the two.
  14. I'd say they go outside the family, even though historically Carolina is very insular as far as hires go. Not sure where I'd rank Williams all time, but he has to be Top 10 if not top 5. Too bad he never won a Natty at Kansas, then he'd REALLY be up there. He was arguably better than Dean Smith, even though he'd never say so because he worships Smith.
  15. Wow, that's a stunner to me. I figured he was there another 3-5 years before he retired.
  16. Syracuse also made the Final in 1996, losing to a great Kentucky squad by nine in the Championship game.
  17. They sure seem to be, but I've seen other teams no one thought could be beaten lose in the Tourney. Do I think anyone is gonna beat them? No. Is it a sure thing? Nope.
  18. Gonzaga was dominant. The Four Letters back to the Final Four. Guess the blue bloods aren't dead yet.
  19. I believe Maryland and Syracuse was the last time in '02 and '03.
  20. Few used to routinely come up in coaching searches back in the 00's. I think around 2010 all the Power league schools finally realized he was never leaving Spokane.
  21. For a tournament with all the upsets this one had, there's a good chance the Final Four will be three 1 seeds and a 2.
  22. I remember Jason Sasser at Texas Tech. That team in '96 went to the Sweet 16. Can't remember who they lost to, but I do remember they beat UNC in the Round of 32.
