Warriors Long Range Bombs Sink Spurs
Curry 9 Treys And 45 Points Make Statement



Many are not sure what to expect as this season tipped off and some of the best names and teams begin playing ball. There was no doubt however at Oracle Arena on Saturday night that the 2016 Warriors were out to prove a point.

The Warriors destroyed the 2014 San Antonio Spurs 121-92 and did it in a fashion that shines a light on the era they come from. Steph Curry hit 9 of 12 triples on his way to 45 points while the team as a whole shot 39 percent from the stripe.

"I was in a groove and my teamates kept finding me at the right spot." said Curry after the win. "We know its only one game, but did we feel a bit overlooked when people talk favorites. Well yes."

Greg Popvich even with Kawhai Leonard on this team who is known as a defensive stopper and still could not cool off the Warriors and showed his frustration. "We are going to have a long season if we do not prepare better and execute. I am embarrassed."

"Remember, its only one game" added Tony Parker.

Rafael Rivera showed why the Giants have been big on his potential the past few years, as he throws 8 shutout innings in his first start of the season. The offense came in clutch behind him as they recorded hits in key situations. The Giants and Padres play again tomorrow at 5:40 PM.

DURING THE BEGINNING OF THE OFFSEASON, THE ATHLETES WERE WORKING HARD IN THE CLASSROOM AND IN THE WEIGHT ROOM. THREE PLAYERS IN PARTICULAR INCREASED SIGNIFICANTLY FROM TIME SPENT IN THE WEIGHT ROOM:

TAY WILLIAMS - HB - DID NOT SEE MUCH FIELD TIME LAST YEAR BUT WANTED THAT TO CHANGE THIS YEAR AS HE PUT ON 32 POUNDS IN THE WEIGHT ROOM. HE TOLD MEDIA THAT HE WAS LOOKING TO BECOME QUICKER, FASTER, AND STRONGER!

MICHAEL SWIFT - DT - HE WAS INFORMED AFTER THE SEASON THAT COACHES WOULD LIKE TO SWITCH HIM TO THE INTERIOR DLINE AND GIVEN THAT FACT, HE KNEW HE NEEDED SOME BULK SO HE ADDED 51 POUNDS TO HIS FRAME.

JONATHAN COLEMAN II - HE DECIDED TO WORK HIS BUTT OFF IN THE WEIGHT ROOM AND ADDED 43 POUNDS FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON TO HELP LAY THE WOOD TO OPPOSING DEFENDERS AND HOPEFULLY SEE MORE PLAYING TIME.

UPCOMING POSITION BATTLES:
QB - HOLTON DID NOT HAVE THE BEST SOPHOMORE YEAR AND REID HERRING'S WORK ETHIC AND WORK IN THE CLASSROOM HAS CREATED A POSSIBILITY TO GET SOME PLAYING TIME THIS YEAR OR AT LEAST PUT SOME PRESSURE ON HOLTON BRINGING THE BEST OUT OF HIM.

HB - DARIUS PINNIX JR WAS NOT GRANTED HIS MEDICAL RED SHIRT AND WILL BE RETURNING FOR HIS SENIOR SEASON, HOWEVER TRACE CHRISTIAN INCREASED HIS SKILL LEVEL SIGNIFICANTLY DURING THE OFFSEASON AND WILL BE CHALLENGING DARIUS AS THE STARTER, BOTH WILL PLAY HOWEVER DUE TO THE NATURE OF THE EAST CAROLINA OFFENSE.

SLOT RECEIVER - WITH DEONDRE FARRIER GONE, THERE IS A HOLE AND A LOT OF TARGETS TO REPLACE AT SLOT IN THE AIR RAID OFFENSE. THE MAIN PARTICIPANTS VYING FOR THIS JOB ARE TYLER SNEAD (S0), JSI HATFIELD (S0), AND STEVE FALK IV (FR).

CENTER - PEYTON WINSTEAD AND JAISON FOURNET WILL BATTLE IT OUT FOR THE STARTING CENTER AND OFFENSIVE LINE PROTECTION CALLER.

RIGHT DEFENSIVE END - WILL CHANDON HICKERSON (2013 STARTER) BE DETHRONED BY TRUE SOPHOMORE TRAVEON FRESHWATER AFTER AN IMPRESSIVE OFFSEASON BY TRAVEON?

MIDDLE LINE BACKER - XAVIER SMITH WAS THE LEADING TACKLER LAST YEAR BUT BRUCE BIVENS WANTS TO START IN HIS SENIOR YEAR. THIS MAY BE THE BIGGEST BATTLE WE FACE THIS SPRING SESSION.

SPRING GAME (PRACTICE) RESULTS:

HOLTON, ALTHOUGH NOT A GREAT SHOWING IN THE SPRING GAME, DID PROVIDE THE ONLY BOOST TO THE OFFENSE AS REID MISSED MOST OF HIS TARGETS AND WAS NOT AS MOBILE AS HOLTON, GIVING HIM THE EDGE.

AS FAR AS RUNNING BACK IS CONCERNED, TRACE CHRISTIAN HAS A QUICKER FIRST STEP BUT ALSO HAD A FUMBLE WHICH WE CANNOT HAVE. I THINK WE WILL STILL RUN A 2 BACK SET WITH THESE TWO AND SWITCH IN AND OUT USING FORMATION SUBS, KEEPING BOTH FRESH.

AT SLOT RECEIVER, TYLER SNEAD AND STEVE FALK IV WERE MOST IMPRESSIVE, WITH TYLER DUE TO HIS EXPERIENCE GETTING THE NOD, BUT ALL THREE WILL GET PLAYING TIME IN THE PIRATE OFFENSE.

AT CENTER, ALTHOUGH PEYTON HAD A GREAT OFFSEASON, JAISON WAS SOLID ON THE FRONT LINE COMMANDING THE PROTECTION AND KEEPING HOLTON MAINLY OFF THE GROUND, GIVING HIM THE NOD AS STARTER AT CENTER.

DEFENSIVELY, WE ARE GOING TO STAY STATUS QUO AS THE DEFENSE GAVE THE OFFENSE FITS AND THEREFORE KEEPING XAVIER SMITH AND CHANDON IN THEIR STARTING ROLES, ALSO DANIEL CHARLES AND JUAN POWELL MADE THEIR NAMES KNOWN ON THE DEFENSIVE SIDE.

Old Bulls Fill It Up Against Indiana
Theus 15 assists in coming out party



Reggie Theus is really going to like passing the ball to young Michael Jordan. Theus ran the show like a composer on opening night at Chicago Stadium dishing out 15 assists while Jordan threw down 30 points as the Bulls beat the 2013 Pacers in a high scoring game 128-124.

The Bulls were also aided by Artis Gilmore who always seems to shoot at a high percentage. Gilmore also had one of the highlights of the night when he blocked a Roy Hibbert dunk in emphatic fashion. Orlando Wooldridge also played well with 3 blocks and fouble digit scoring while Rod Higgins hit a big three pointer late in the game to secure a tight win.

"We are so much better then people think we are" says Theus after the win, "it really is fun to run the floor with these guyes."

Can a young Jordan compete for a scoring title? It will be hard to say, but a sharp shooting Reggie Miller scored 35 points in the loss with 4 three pointers. Miller and Paul George also looked good on the court as the Pacers surely have more to build on.

Webber Leads 4th Quarter Rally For Kings
Sacramento overturns 18 point deficit for win

It all looked like it was going to be the perfect opening night for the 2007 Warriors. They had the 2002 Kings frustrated and right where they wanted them up 18 points in the 3rd quarter and their stars like Baron Davis and Rick Barry silencing the California crowd.

Basketball can be a wirlwind sometimes, and the Kings came out a new team in the fourth quarter; one of belief and fortitude. Chris Webber lead the way with 34 points including two clutch shots with under a minuted to play. Sacramento outscored the Warriors 36-18 in the final frame with Vlade Divac adding 10 assists and alot of leadership.

"Sometimes we have to look at each other and determine we need to give more" said Divac, "thats what we did tonight. We do not want to leave the floor embarrassed even if we lose."

A Davis three pointer came up short as time expired and the Warriors now look to pick up the pieces, after dropping a game they were sure they had.

"On to the next one" says Stephen Jackson.

SENIOR BANQUET – 2013 SEASON

COACH FALK III’S FIRST YEAR HAS CAME AND WENT AND NOW ITS TIME TO SAY GOODBYE TO THE SENIORS WHO PLAYED SUCH A LARGE PART IN THIS SEASON.
AS WE ALL KNOW, THE SEASON ENDED AT 7-6 WITH A BELK BOWL LOSS TO THE LOUISVILLE CARDINALS. NOT THE ENDING WE WANTED TO SEND THE SENIORS OUT IN, HOWEVER ECU DID TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS ON SENIOR NIGHT AGAINST USF! LET’S GET INTO ANNOUNCING THE SENIORS…

HUSSEIN HOWE – HB - #6

HUSSEIN STARTED OFF THE SEASON AS PART OF A TWO HEADED MONSTER ALONG WITH JUNIOR RUNNING BACK DARRIUS PINNIX, WHOSE SEASON WAS CUT SHORT IN WEEK 4 WHERE HUSSEIN FINISHED THE YEAR AS THE LEAD BACK. AS PART OF THE AIR RAID OFFENSE, THERE ISNT A LOT OF RUSHING TO BE HAD BUT HUSSEIN NEVER COMPLAINED, ALWAYS CAME TO PRACTICE AND NEVER MISSED A GAME. HE CURRENTLY HOLDS A 3.11 GPA WITH ONLY A SEMESTER LEFT TO FINISH AND RECEIVE HIS DEGREE IN HISTORY. HE FINISHED THE YEAR 29 YARDS SHORT OF 500 RUSHING YARDS AND 6 TD’S. 128 OF THOSE RUSHING YARDS CAME AFTER FIRST CONTACT. HE WASN’T A HUGE PART OF THE PASSING GAME, HOWEVER CONTRIBUTED 14 RECEPTIONS DURING THE 2013 CAMPAIGN. HIS DEFINING MOMENT THIS PAST SEASON WAS ALBEIT IN A CLOSE LOSS TO MEMPHIS, WHERE HE RUSHED FOR 65 YARDS ON 12 CARRIES AND SCORED 2 TD’S HELPING HIS FELLOW PIRATES KEEP THE GAME CLOSE. WE ARE GOING TO MISS HUSSEIN AND WISH HIM WELL ON HIS FUTURE ENDEAVORS!

CORTEZ HERRIN – G - #70

CORTEZ WAS THE WEEK 1 STARTER AT GUARD HOWEVER ENDED UP DISMISSED FROM THE FOOTBALL TEAM FOR 6 MONTHS ENDING HIS SENIOR SEASON.

AUDIE OMOTOSHO – WR - #8
AUDIE WAS A SENIOR GRAD TRANSFER FROM UCLA. AUDIE WAS A DAY 1 STARTER DUE TO MULTIPLE SUSPENSIONS DURING FALL CAMP. HE RETURNED TO MORE OF A RESERVE ROLE LATER IN THE YEAR BUT STILL REMAINED RELEVANT TO THE ECU OFFENSE. HE FINISHED THIRD ON THE TEAM WITH 29 RECEPTIONS FOR 280 YARDS AND 1 TD. IT WAS A TOUGH CHALLENGE TO COME TO A NEW TEAM, RUN A NEW OFFENSE UNDER BRAND NEW COACHES, BUT AUDIE WAS A SMART KID AND CAUGHT ON QUICKLY. HE CURRENTLY HAS A 3.98 GPA IN COMPUTER SCIENCE. HE IS ASPIRING ONE DAY TO BECOME A COLLEGE COACH IF THE PATH LEADS HIM THERE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR YEAR OF SERVICE AUDIE!

BRANDEN PENA – C - #54
STARTED ALL 13 GAMES FOR THE 2013 PIRATES. SUFFERED A COUPLE OF INJURIES LATE IN THE YEAR HOWEVER DID NOT MISS SIGNIFICANT PLAYING TIME. ALLOWING ONLY 1 SACK THIS SEASON, WAS THE ANCHOR FOR THE OFFENSIVE LINE. BRANDEN GRADUATED EARLY WITH A 3.66 GPA IN ARCHITECTURE. A TRUE LEADER ON AND OFF THE FIELD, BRANDEN’S CHARACTER WILL BE MISSED.

ANTHONY WATLEY – TE - #80

ANTHONY WAS THE STARTER FOR HALF OF THE YEAR AND THEN SHARED TIME WITH ZECH BYRD FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON. ANTHONY FINISHED THE YEAR WITH 5 RECEPTIONS FOR 37 YARDS BUT 2 OF THOSE RECEPTIONS WERE FOR TOUCHDOWNS. HE MADE THE MOST OF THE CATCHES HE HAD THIS YEAR. ANTHONY HAS A 2.83 GPA MAJORING IN HISTORY AND PLANS ON GRADUATING THIS SPRING.

JARAY SAMPSON – TE - #86

JARAY NEVER CRACKED THE STARTING LINEUP BUT WAS A KEY COG ON THE SCOUT TEAM AND THE MVP OF THE SCOUT TEAM THIS YEAR. HIS LONE IN GAME CATCH FOR 5 YARDS CAME SENIOR NIGHT AGAINST USF. JARAY GRADUATED EARLY WITH A 3.55 GPA IN HISTORY.

DEONDRE FARRIER – WR - #1

THE MOST DECORATED SENIOR OF THE CLASS, STARTED AT SLOT RECEIVER FOR THE 2013 PIRATES, FINISHING THE YEAR LEADING THE TEAM IN RECEPTIONS WITH 47, SECOND ON THE TEAM IN YARDS WITH 596 (B. PROEHL – 1ST), AND 3RD ON THE TEAM IN TOUCHDOWNS WITH 4. DEONDRE ALSO WAS A FACTOR IN THE RUN GAME (ALSO KNOWN AS THE JET SWEEP MAN) WITH 21 CARRIES FOR 152 YARDS, AND 2 TD’S. HE PLAYED A PROMINENT ROLE IN THE OFFENSE AND MISSED NO TIME DUE TO INJURIES AND ONLY 1 GAME DUE TO A TWITTER RANT. HIS MOST IMPRESSIVE GAME WAS THE RIVALRY GAME AGAINST MARSHALL WHERE HE FINISHED WITH 49 YARDS ON THE GROUND AND 48 YARDS ON 4 CATCHES WITH A TOUCHDOWN EARNING HIM PLAYER OF THE GAME HONORS IN THE 32-26 DEFEAT OF OUR RIVAL IN “THE PLANE CRASH GAME”.

JALEN PRICE – DT - #93

JALEN WAS THE BACKUP DT IN THE 3-3-5 DEFENSE SPELLING STARTER AND FELLOW SENIOR ALEX TURNER. JALEN PLAYED A LARGE ROLE IN THE BEGINNING OF THE TURNAROUND THE DEFENSE HAD THIS YEAR. HE ENDED THE SEASON WITH 5 TACKLES, 2 TFL’S AND 1 SACK. THE STATS DON’T TELL THE WHOLE STORY WITH JALEN AS HE ALWAYS WAS IN THE RIGHT POSITION ON THE DEFENSIVE LINE. JALEN IS ALSO AN EXCELLENT STUDENT WITH ONLY 3 MORE CLASSES TO PASS TO EARN HIS DEGREE (CURRENTLY HAS A 3.56 GPA).

ALEX TURNER – DT - #93

ALEX, OUT OF HOUSTON, TX, WAS THE STARTING DT AND THE ANCHOR OF THE DEFENSIVE LINE, NEVER MISSING A GAME. HE WAS TIED FOR THE LEAD IN SACKS WITH (7) WITH FELLOW SENIOR KENDALL FUTRELL. HE ALSO ADDED 25 TACKLES AND 14 TFL’S DURING THE 2013 SEASON IN WHICH HE EARNED 1ST TEAM ALL CONFERENCE HONORS. HE MADE A LOT OF BIG PLAYS FOR THE TEAM AND COULD ALWAYS BE COUNTED ON TO MAKE A SPLASH PLAY TO TURN THE MOMENTUM IN THE DEFENSE’S FAVOR. HE WAS A DT THAT HAD TO BE GAME-PLANNED FOR. ALEX HAD HIS BEST GAME OF THE YEAR IN A LOSING EFFORT AT THE RANKED BEARCATS TALLYING 3 TACKLES, 3 TFL’S AND 2 SACKS. ALEX, IF HE DOESN’T PLAY IN THE NFL, OR RETURN TO THE GRIDIRON TO COACH WILL BE A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS EXECUTIVE SOME DAY, NEEDING 4 MORE CLASSES TO OBTAIN HIS BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION MASTERS. GOOD LUCK IN YOUR FUTURE ALEX!

KENDALL FUTRELL – DE - #44

KENDALL WAS THRUST INTO THE STARTING ROLE AT DE WHEN CHANCE PURVIS WHO LED THE TEAM IN SACKS AT THE TIME WITH 7 WAS INJURED FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR WITH A BROKEN TAILBONE. KENDALL MADE GREAT USE OF HIS TIME AS A STARTER (PREVIOUSLY HE WAS USED AS A PASS RUSH SPECIALIST IN CERTAIN SUB PACKAGES). HE ENDED THE SEASON TIED FOR THE TEAM LEAD IN SACKS WITH 7 AND ALSO TALLIED 18 TACKLES AND 8 TFL’S. KENDALL OFF THE FIELD WAS A MODEL CITIZEN TAKING PART IN NUMEROUS COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAMS FOR THE PIRATES, HE WILL SURELY BE MISSED!

MIKE WITHERSPOON – CB - #2
MIKE WAS ONE OF THOSE GUYS THAT WAS RARELY TALKED ABOUT IN GAMES, MAINLY BECAUSE HE ALWAYS DID HIS JOB AND WAS NOT TARGETED VERY MUCH. HIS CLAIM TO FAME THIS YEAR WAS A GAME ON THE ROAD WHERE HE RETURNED AN OPENING DRIVE INTERCEPTION TO THE HOUSE JUMPING A SCREEN PASS THROWN BY SHANE BEUCHELE. HE WAS ALWAYS AN INTUITIVE PLAYER AND WE WILL MISS THAT LEADERSHIP AND INSTINCTIVENESS ON THE BACK END OF THE ECU DEFENSE. HE WILL BE A HARD ONE TO REPLACE IN THE UPCOMING SEASON. HE WAS KNOWN AS A SHUTDOWN CORNER THROUGHOUT THE AMERICAN CONFERENCE AND WAS A GUY WHO COULD TAKE AWAY THE OPPONENTS BEST RECEIVER. GOOD LUCK IN THE FUTURE MIKE!

COLBY GORE – CB - #26

COLBY STARTED OFF THE SEASON AS THE SLOT CORNER BUT EVENTUALLY TOOK OVER THE STARTING SPOT REPLACING FRESHMAN JAQUAN MCMILLIAN. HIS INT IN THE BOWL GAME ALMOST TURNED THE TIDE FOR THE PIRATES, BUT INSTEAD A QUESTIONABLE REFEREE CALL, TURNED IT INTO A SAFETY, GIVING THE CARDINALS 2 POINTS. HE SHOULD BE KNOWN FOR A LOT MORE THAN THAT HOWEVER AS HE WAS A GREAT TEAMMATE AND ALWAYS WAS THERE FOR HIS FELLOW PLAYERS, AS WELL AS ONE HELL OF A PLAYER HIMSELF. HE IS EARNING A MASTERS IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION AND NEEDS ONLY ONE MORE CLASS TO OBTAIN THAT DEGREE WHICH HE SHOULD ACCOMPLISH IN THE SPRING SEMESTER.

BANQUET CONCLUSION – 2013

AS YOU CAN SEE, THE PIRATES ARE GRADUATING QUITE A BIT OF EXPERIENCE AND LEADERSHIP ON AND OFF OF THE FIELD. GONE WILL BE OVER 50% OF THE RUSHING TD’S FROM 2013, AS WELL AS ALMOST 100 CATCHES AND 1,000 YARDS FROM THE PASSING OFFENSE. DEFENSIVELY, ECU GRADUATES 15 SACKS AND LEADERS ON THE DEFENSIVE LINE AS WELL AS THE TWO STARTING CB’S. WE WISH ALL THE GRADUATES LUCK IN THE FUTURE AND ALSO CONGRATULATE THEM ON THEIR CONTINUED SUCCESS AS EAST CAROLINA ALUMNI!

UNLV 28, #8New Mexico 14
The Lobos didn’t look like a #8 squad when we played them. We kept the pressure on them and they could never get a rhythm going. Our defensive end Swanson broke the school record for sacks in a season and we weren’t going to be denied being crowned champions of the Mountain West.

Maaco Las Vegas Bowl - UNLV 31, Arizona State 3
I think Arizona State mailed in the rest of their season before they even ran through the tunnel in this bowl game. They were shut down completely by our dynamic duo of Swanson and Blount. Nick Sherry was injured during the game, but with us having the lead already, Troy Hawthorne had no problem stepping in and closing this one out.

This will conclude my reporting on the UNLV dynasty. I can’t put the amount of effort this dynasty deserves for reporting because I’m simply enjoying just playing the games. But I love to write, so I’m making a decision. I’ll continue playing this dynasty, but I will report on a new dynasty. I’ll make a thread in the forums and everything. That way I can take my time with it and play the UNLV dynasty whenever I just want to play the game itself. So I’ll see you in the forums.

01:57 PM - November 4, 2019. Written by OBinKC
Finished the entire first year at UNLV. It was a really fun season and I was too enthralled with playing the game to be bothered with reporting. So here is a recap of the regular season starting from Week 4:

UNLV 45, Wyoming 42
This was a fight to the end. I tried to slow the game down, but couldn’t stop Wyoming from scoring. It took some really diligent clock management to finish out the game on top.

UNLV 49, South Alabama 30
We went into Mobile and learned that South Alabama came to play! They were actually ahead of us for a quarter and a half, but our defense finally broke them. We continued the run-heavy style and our pressure forced them to make mistakes and secure our win.

UNLV 35, Hawaii 7
Hawaii was having a really bad year (they finished 1-11) and this was never close. We imposed our will on defense and pounded them on the ground until it was over.

UNLV 35, Nevada 17
Another game that started off tough, but our defensive ends got into a groove early, causing multiple sacks and made this game easy for us.

UNLV 49, Fresno State 3
Another one that was barely a contest. It seemed like the Bulldogs took this game lightly. This time we won through the air instead of on the ground. Nick Sherry threw for over 400 yards, but no touchdowns, lol. We’ll take a blowout any way we can get it.

Boise State 38, UNLV 32
This was more lopsided a loss than the score indicates due to the garbage time points. We were outmatched and out-coached. Chris Peterson devised a scheme that kept 6 defenders in the box at all times, a front we hadn’t seen all year. In turn, the Broncos shut down every run we threw at them. Making us one-dimensional, the pressure on Nick was too great, and he threw 4 interceptions. I benched him for running threat Jared Lebowitz, who was able to lead a triple option attack late in the game. But it wasn’t enough.

UNLV 33, BYU 28
The interceptions continued for Sherry, and he was knocked out of the game in the fourth quarter. This time, junior Troy Hawthorne led us to the end. We recovered an onside kick and scored for the victory.

UNLV 35, Colorado State 17
The Rams started out super strong, and I felt like their quarterback was invincible. But a couple of key stops swayed the momentum in our favor. Our defensive ends Swanson and Blount were the stars of the game like many times before.

UNLV 39, San Diego State 36
The Aztecs were the pride of the West division, with a record of 10-1, and us having a record of 9-2 meant that whoever won this game would go to the Mountain West championship game. It was a tough one too. At one point, we were down 14-0. But we kept to what got us here and pounded away on the ground. First making it 14-7, then imposing our will on defense. And before we knew it, we were ahead. This fight continued until the final whistle, and somehow we were on top.

So that’s the recap of the regular season. Conference championship and Bowl game coming up next.

CFP CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
#1 VIRGINIA TECH VS. #3 ALABAMA

KIRK HERBSTREIT IS TAKING ALABAMA TO UPSET THE HOKIES AND WIN YET ANOTHER NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP! IN THE SECOND SEMIFINAL GAME, THE HOKIES LOST THEIR TE MITCHELL FOR THE SEASON, WHAT HEARTBREAK FOR THAT KID NOT BEING ABLE TO PARTICIPATE AND HELP HIS TEAM IN THE CFP CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. THE THREE HEADED MONSTER FOR VTECH OF RYAN WILLIS, DESHAWN MCCLEASE, AND DAMON HAZLETON HOPE TO HAVE ENOUGH FIRE POWER TO TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS AND KEEP UP WITH THE HIGH SCORING BAMA OFFENSE.

ALABAMA IS COMPLETELY HEALTHY AND TUA TAGAVAILOA HAS AMAZING STATS FOR THE YEAR WITH OVER 3,600 PASSING YARDS, 40 TD'S AND ONLY 5 INT'S. NAJEE HARRIS HAS ALSO ADDED 1600 YARDS ON THE GROUND AND 20 TD'S. THIS COULD BE ONE FOR THE AGES!

AND THE NATIONAL CHAMPION IS.....
ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE
FINISHING THE SEASON AT 14-1 AND A DOMINANT PERFORMANCE OVER THE PREVIOUSLY UNDEFEATED VIRGINIA TECH HOKIES!
FINAL SCORE - ALABAMA 38 - VIRGINIA TECH - 21

BELK BOWL VS. LOUISVILLE (7-5):

ITS THE END OF THE SEASON AND THAT MEANS CHRISTMAS, FAMILY PARTIES, PRESENTS, AND OF COURSE BOWL GAMES!

ITS TWO DAYS AFTER CHRISTMAS, AND WHAT WAY TO CONTINUE TO CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAY SEASON THEN TO HUNKER DOWN WITH THE FAMILY, TURN ON THE TV AND CHECK OUT THE BELK BOWL FROM CHARLOTTE, NC AT 6 PM!

A BOWL GAME PITTING TWO FIRST YEAR COACHES AT THEIR RESPECTIVE PROGRAMS. BOTH WITH IDENTICAL RECORDS, 7-5 (5-4). THE LAST TIME YOU WILL SEE SOME OF THE PIRATES WE HAVE GROWN TO LOVE THIS YEAR WITH 12 SENIORS DEPARTING THE PROGRAM THIS YEAR.

LOUISVILLE HAS HAD A TOUGH SEASON IN COACH SATTERFIELD'S FIRST YEAR. SOME CLOSE DEFEATS TO VERY TALENTED TEAMS. ENDING THE REGULAR SEASON ON A 3 GAME WIN STREAK, THE CARDINAL FAITHFUL WOULD LOVE A BOWL VICTORY HEADING INTO THE OFF SEASON.

COACH FALK'S PIRATES HAVE BEEN ON A SEE SAW THIS ENTIRE SEASON, ALTERNATING THE LAST 9 WEEKS WITH WINS AND LOSSES. HOPEFULLY THAT DOESNT MEAN THAT THIS BOWL GAME WILL BE A LOSS AS THE PIRATES FINISHED THE YEAR WITH A SHUTOUT ON THE ROAD AGAINST THE HUSKIES OF UCONN.

NO SIGNIFICANT SUSPENSIONS, HOWEVER REID HERRING WHO IS ACADEMICALLY INELIGIBLE FOR THE UPCOMING BOWL GAME, GOT INTO A SKIRMISH WITH TEAMMATES, HE IS OBVIOUSLY BOTHERED BY HIS STUDIES. WE ARE SETTING HIM UP TO WORK WITH A TEAM COUNSELOR TO GET HIM READY FOR NEXT SEASON AS COACH FALK EXPRESSED HOW MUCH THE TEAM NEEDS HIM.

ON TO THE GAME!

1ST QUARTER
LOUISVILLE WON THE TOSS AMD ELECTED TO DEFER GIVING THE PIRATES THE BALL TO START THE GAME. BOTH TEAMS WOULD EXCHANGE PUNTS AND THE PIRATES THEN OPENED UP THE SCORING WITH A LONG DRIVE RESULTING IN A ZECH BYRD TOUCHDOWN TO GIVE THE PIRATES A 7-0 LEAD WITH 10 SECONDS LEFT IN THE 1ST QUARTER. LOUISVILLE WOULD WASTE NO TIME ANSWERING SCORING ON THE NEXT PLAY FROM SCRIMMAGE WITH A HASSAN HALL LONG TD RUN TIEING THE GAME AT 7-7.

2ND QUARTER
ON THE ENSUING KICKOFF, JSI HATFIELD WOULD RECEIVE THE KICK AND DO WHAT HE DOES BEST TAKING IT TO THE HOUSE, GIVING THE LEAD RIGHT BACK TO EAST CAROLINA 14-7! IN A MATTER OF TWENTY SECONDS, THE FANS AT THE BELK BOWL WOULD SEE THREE TOUCHDOWNS! THE PIRATE DEFENSE WOULD STIFFEN NOT ALLOWING A SCORE BY THE CARDINALS IN THE SECOND QUARTER WHILE THE OFFENSE WOULD ADD ANOTHER TD, THIS TIME TO BLAKE PROEHL, GIVING THE PIRATES A 21-7 LEAD AT HALFTIME.

3RD QUARTER
I AM NOT SURE WHAT COACH SATTERFIELD TOLD HIS TEAM AT HALFTIME BUT THEY CAME OUT GUNS A BLAZING AND TOOK THE FIRST PLAY FROM THE SCRIMMAGE TO THE HOUSE ON YET ANOTHER LONG TD RUN BY HASSAN HALL. HASSAN WOULD FINISH WITH OVER 200 YARDS ON THE GROUND. THE PIRATES DROVE DOWN AND WOULD CONNECT ON A 50 YARD FIELD GOAL MAKING IT A 10 POINT GAME HEADING INTO THE 4TH QUARTER.

4TH QUARTER
JAWON PASS FINALLY MADE A NICE PASS AND THREW A TD TO DAWKINS TO CUT THE LEAD TO 3. THE PIRATES RECEIVED THE BALL BACK BUT HAD TO PUNT GIVING THE BALL BACK TO THE CARDINALS WITH 6 MINUTES TO GO IN THE BELK BOWL. THE CARDINALS DROVE DOWN THE FIELD GOAL BUT JAWON MADE A MISTAKE AND THREW AN INT RIGHT INTO THE HANDS OF COLBY GORE (WHO WOULD EVENTUALLY LEAVE THE GAME WITH A CONCUSSION), HOWEVER A QUESTIONABLE CALL BY THE REFEREE SAID COLBY CAUGHT THE BALL, MAINTAINED POSSESSION, WAS TACKLED IN THE END ZONE AND IT WAS CALLED A SAFETY. AFTER BEING CHALLENGED, THE CALL WOULD STAND, AND NOW THE CARDINALS WERE DOWN ONLY 1 POINT. THE CARDINALS WOULD MAKE MULTIPLE THIRD AND FOURTH DOWN CONVERSIONS SETTING UP A 44 YARD FG FOR THE LEAD THAT WAS SUCCESSFUL. NOW THE PIRATES WERE DOWN 2 WITH 2 TIMEOUTS AND A MINUTE AND A HALF TO GO. HOLTON MOVED THE PIRATES DOWN THE FIELD AND WITH ABOUT 40 SECONDS LEFT, WHEEL ROUTES WERE CALLED, AND HOLTON MADE A THROW THAT HE WOULD LOVE TO TAKE BACK AS IT WAS PICKED OFF BY STURGHILL ENDING THE PIRATES SEASON.

THIS ONE IS GOING TO LEAVE A BITTER TASTE IN THE MOUTHS OF THE PLAYERS, COACHES, AND PIRATE FAITHFUL. THE DEFEAT WILL BE USED FOR MOTIVATION HEADING INTO THE OFF SEASON, COACH FALK JUST WISHED THAT THE SENIORS WOULD GO OUT ON A WINNING NOTE.

WELL, WELL, WELL, THE PLAYOFF SEMIFINAL HAS COME AND GONE AND THE RESULTS ARE ASTONISHING.
(DISCLAIMER - I WILL BE DOING THE PLAYOFF BEFORE SIMMING AND PLAYING THE EAST CAROLINA BOWL GAME DUE TO THE EDITING BETWEEN CONSOLE AND PC THAT HAS TO OCCUR, BEFORE I CAN CONTINUE ON WITH THE DYNASTY SEASON)

IN THE ALL STATE SUGAR BOWL, SEMIFINAL #1 - ALABAMA WAS VICTORIOUS DISMANTLING THE PREVIOUSLY UNBEATEN TEXAS LONGHORNS 47-21. THERE WAS NEVER A DOUBT IN THE MINDS OF THE CRIMSON TIDE FAITHFUL THAT THEY WERE GOING TO THE CFP CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. BUT WHO WOULD THEY PLAY?

IN THE FIESTA BOWL, THE 1 LOSS NOTRE DAME FIGHTING IRISH TOOK ON THE UNDEFEATED AND #1 SEED CHAMPS OF THE ATHLETIC COAST CONFERENCE VIRGINIA TECH HOKIES. UNFORTUNATELY FOR THE VIEWERS, THIS MATCHUP ALSO WAS NOT A CLOSE ONE AS THE HOKIES CRUSHED THE FIGHTING IRISH 38-14, SETTING UP AN ACC VS. SEC CFP CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.

THOSE RESULTS SET UP THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME PITTING #1 SEED VIRGINIA TECH TO HOST # 3 SEED ALABAMA!

01:54 AM - November 2, 2019. Written by hellinas00
SEASON B


EAST

1. 2001 New Jersey Nets
Record: 52-30

Jason Kidd could move a basketball to the open man faster then anyone in his prime and his MVP like season with the Nets took this team to the brink. We have added longtime Net Derrick Coleman to the roster who will battle it out with Kenyan Martin and Keith Van Horne for coach Byron Scott. Size at the center position is a real hole so the Nets will want to up and run and shoot smart shots as rebounding could also be a challenge.

2. 2016 Cleveland Cavs
Record: 57-25

Could be the best of Labron James here who returned home and finally brought glory to Cleveland. james did it all and was assisted by up and coming star Kyrie Irving who especially stepped it up in the championship. Defeated the 73 win Warriors shows how determined and good this team can be. Kevin Love and JR Smith will need to be at their best while Matthew Dellavedova needs to pester opponents and keep offenses down. Can the King produce again for Cleveland?

3. 1996 Seattle Super Sonics
Record: 64-18

Basketball in Seattle was something special in the 90's with Gary Payton leading a team that made a habit of winning, none more then in 1996. George Karl played his unique brand of basketball and a force in the middle name Shawn Kemp made it happen. Hersey Hawkins was an underrated star and Detlef Schrempf showcased his versatile game. This team played defense better then most, and that will be key in this season. The Sonics are being picked as a sleeper by many.

4. 2005 Phoenix Suns
Record: 44-38

From outsider to contender. In to the mix comes Sir Charles. I made Barkley to be part of this process and he will play for a Suns team that really needs him. Barkley can take over games and is a character that demands attention on the court. Stephan Marbury and Penny Hardawy will make this team quick and Amare Stoudamire before his injuries will be a great duo with Charles. You have to love the Suns team that is put together for Frank Johnson. Many like them to go very far this season.

5. 1996 Chicago Bulls
Record: 72-10

Most would say truly the greatest team of all time. Now is the time for the Bulls to prove it and play with the biggest target on their back. With everything to lose Minchael Jordan takes his most talented roster on his back and looks to be the best of the best, even some of his own teams can be in his way from making that happen. Dennis Rodman and Scottie Pippen add to the hall of fame resume of this team while talents like Steve Kerr and Toni Kukoc should not be overlooked.

6. 1989 Cleveland Cavs
Record: 57-25

A quiet bunch that inst fancied by anyone but will try and compete with out the added spice. Mark Price and Brad Daugherty are as fundamentaly sound as you can find and Larry nance brings range and hops to the table. Dont let their low profile fool you, this Cavs team wont quit on Lenny Wilkens and if they can just avoid Michael Jordan, can actually win some games. Ron Harper and Steve Kerr are two future Bulls that are young and able to help in Cleveland.

7. 1998 LA Lakers
Record: 61-21

The Lakers came to life again in 1998 and it was due to the investment in the Big Fella Shaq as well as a skinny kid from Philadelphia named Kobe. These were the early days of a dynasty but the talent and edge is there. Eddie Jones is also still much better then you rememberwhile Robert Horry and Nick Van Exel know a thing or two about knocking down big shots. Del Harris has a chance to take this team places if he can funnel the imaturity.

8. 2019 Milwaukee Bucks
Record: N/A

Giannis brought home his MVP as the Bucks with his emergence had the best record in the NBA. The Greek Freak can play all over the court and his inside strength can be underrated. The Bucks add Kris Middleton and Brooks Lopez to a team that usually has great chemistry and poise. Still not having won anything, hard to see the Bucks taking things very far.

9. 1999 New York Knicks
Record: 27-23

After a strike shortened average regular season, the Knicks went on a run and made it back to the NBA Finals. Patrick Ewing wasnt even the biggest factor on this team with Allan Houston and Latrell Sprewell playing some of their best ball. Larry Johnson post injury still could hit a big shot and Marcus Camby came on as a true defensive force. If they do get something from the big guy, this Knicks team will not be a pushover and should be monitored.

10. 2011 Chicago Bulls
Record: 62-20

A small window for this team to be great before injuries did them in. Derrick Rose wins the MVP at 23 years old and such young stars like Joakim Noah and Lual Deng help compliment them. Carlos Boozer will need to keep his scoring going and the Bulls may need some more outside shooting, but the magic was there for one season. With injuries off, it will be very interesting to see how well a full blown DRose can do against the very best.

11. 1986 Boston Celtics
Record: 67-15

Legends everywhere you look on the parqay of Boston Garden. Larry Bird and Kevin McHale lead a team that bleeds green and won for almost a decade strong. The Celtics just do it all and Robert Parrish is another name that wont be denied in the middle. Dennis Johnson adds fine defense and Bill Walton a real surge of ebergy off the bench; KC Jones and Red Aurebach have to be happy with their chances. In any event, just to watch Larry Bird play again should be something magnificent.

12. 2002 Sacramento Kings
Record: 61-21

A team that really deserved better, this Sacramento team had their chances dashed by the mighty Lakers. Chris Webber dominated as a talent rarely seen at this time while Mike Bibby and Doug Christie were perfect for compliments. Adding European flair in sharp shooter Peja Stojakovic and Vlade Divac, the Kings just keep coming at you. The best Kings team there ever was, it will be interesting to see how their agile unselfish play corolates against modern teams especially.
