The box and one was coming next .... I drew a Zone card too and didn't want to burn that since we still had C and an F to go too ... another good run. I'll get the bracket updated.

So I think I figured something out -- but it still confuzzles me a little. If you look at the 92 Duke team we drafted from BPA, they're rated 102. I have *my* card rated 106 -- but I have Grant Hill starting and he has Antonio Lang starting. (Hill started more games in 92, so that's where I went when I built my card) The BPA Duke team has a stronger bench (B to my C) but Hill's upgrade over Lang is where the 4 points comes in.

Where I lose myself is the 1991 UNLV card I made last summer when I went on a design kick. I listed them with an A defense based on their ppg against of 71 and their offense of 97. The rules say an A defense is under 74 ppg and outscored by 10. UNLV certainly did that. I'm wondering if Bruce adjusted it so UNLV wasn't a monster team.

damn - yeah, that's a tough call man. I don't consider the vaccine/shot a cure (so can I still get COVID, yeah) but from what the research says - if I *do* get it, I won't get hospitalized and/or die - so that's fair for me. I'm not sciency though - so whatever they call it. My dad wouldn't never get a flu shot for the same reason -- but the flu shot isn't meant to stop the flu, it's meant to lessen it. I think this is sort of along the same lines.
272 4/14/2021 9:42:00 AM 2nd Half Favorite Message Thanks, that sounds like fun...I don't need the vaccine to play in it do I :O :)

My doctor is on the fence...I am trying to get my blood pressure down...it averages in the 220/140 range....yeah, I know...stroke area....I've been the guinea pig for about a month now and it's getting better....down to 170/120 range...but I'm on blood thinner and clotting is a real possibility...now reading the shot (let's face it, it's a shot, not a vaccine)...may cause clotting...I can't win....

So ... I'm thinking I may have my ratings wrong.

I was thinking about running a mini tournament for Chris's LIBO peeps (you're welcome to join I'm sure) and I was looking over my card ratings and looking to see how Bruce has them rated. For example -- the 1992 Duke team I had rated a 106 but Bruce has them at 102.

In the rules, they say for power ratings go with this chart:
AA 31
A 25
B 19
C 15
D 11
E 7
F 5

And then add team defense:
Team Defense
A 12
B 0
C -12

And then coaching moves:
Coaching
4 4
3 2
2 0
1 -2


The 92 team has 4 C scorers (I know that matrix) which is 15x4 - 60
a B scorer 60+19 - 79
a D scorer 79+11 - 90

A defense and 4 CM is 16 more points -- 106. How does Bruce get 102? I guess I could ask him ... but you're here. :)
269 4/14/2021 9:28:00 AM 2nd Half Favorite Message That 2-3 roll in my favor should be 6-2 me...I am vs the B def, you are vs A def....correct?

I have the score at 67-55 you...if we need to go back and re check the scoring we should probably do it now.... :O

Got my pro golf round in here before school started. I totaled 24 "1" dice and 17 "2" dice ... but a few 66's in there helped. I ended up -4, 68. I bogeyed the last hole really badly. Should've been a 67.
