Picking the Men’s NCAA Tournament Field: February 23rd Edition

Photo by Scott W. Grau/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Updating from last week, various people on the NCAA Tournament Committee have further clarified/walked back the idea of using the Pairwise this year to specify that they meant they’ll use it within each conference to determine the rankings of that conference. Which is terrific, but not entirely helpful since, with an exception or two, that’s already pretty easy to do. The real difficulty in this process is going to be de...

Picking the Men’s NCAA Tournament Field: February 16th Edition

Matt Christians/SBN College Hockey It moved! Insight into NCAA for selecting the men’s hockey tournament. Basically, the PairWise will be used but there will be a lot of flexibility and subjectivity used. There will be ability to move teams up and down based on strength of schedule. Story on @USCHO shortly.— Jimmy Connelly (@jimmyconnelly) February 16, 2021 Uh.....okay. Teams currently inside the tournament field according to Pairwise: Canisius(as a #1 seed!), Ameri...

Picking the Women’s NCAA Tournament Field: February 16th Edition

Photo by M. Anthony Nesmith/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images We’re down to the final week of the regular season in women’s college before we head into conference tournaments, and as far as anyone seems to know, we’re still just winging it in terms of a picking a field. The good news is that even with the limited data points we have this season, things continue to get slightly more clear each weekend as teams start to play themselves out of getting the benefit of the doubt.

The only difference is that on the women’s side, they have two fewer weeks to make a decision. The field for this year’s tournament is set to be announced in j...

Taking a Guess at the Men’s NCAA Tournament Field: February 1st Edition

These guys are probably fine. We’re now down to just 50 days until the field is supposed to be selected for the 2021 men’s ice hockey tournament. Obviously it’s a weird year and the Pairwise can’t be used with almost zero interconference data points. But if this tournament is going to be played—and even if this year feels like nothing like a normal year and will probably forever carry an asterisk, I still hope it is played for the players’ sake—somebody is somehow going to ha...

"Do you think that extremism is a big problem in the United States, or don't you think so?... Do you think that - the Republican members of Congress who tried to stop the formal certification of Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 presidential election were undermining democracy or protecting democracy?...

Murphy Baldly Names GOP’s Attempt To ‘Overthrow Our Democracy’ On Senate Floor

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) described the actions of his Republican colleagues in much starker terms than most Democrats have thus far during a speech on Friday, painting their refusal to accept President Donald Trump’s defeat not as a mere political stunt but as “the most serious attempt to overthrow our democracy in the history of our country.” “Those who are pushing to make Donald Trump President for a second term, no matter the outcome of the election, are engaged in a treachery against thei...

Ivy League Cancels All Winter Sports Including Men’s and Women’s Hockey

Nope. The Ivy League announced on Thursday that they will cancel all winter sports, including men’s and women’s ice hockey, for the 2020-2021 season due to the ongoing and now surging coronavirus pandemic. The decision ends the possibility of a season for Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, and Yale on both the men’s and women’s side. They join RIT, who announced a cancellation of their season earlier this week. The decision obviously blows a hole in the ECAC’s schedule plans f...

NRA-ILA: Most Election Polling is Garbage, Gun Control Polling is Too

Americans are still divided over the reported results of the 2020 election. IMG NRA-ILA U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Americans are still divided over the reported results of the 2020 election, but one issue that is bringing the country together is a shared disgust of opinion polling. Several “mainstream” polling firms, and the legacy media outlets that tout their bogus findings, have disgraced themselves with wildly inaccurate predictions that managed to tilt almost entirely in a single direction. ...

LIVE RESULTS: Democrat Amy McGrath takes on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky

  Polls have closed in part of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's race against Democrat Amy McGrath in Kentucky's 2020 US Senate election.  McConnell is one of the most high-profile politicians in the country and one of the most reviled among Democrats, helping McGrath raise an eye-popping $46 million for her campaign so far. Despite McConnell's unpopularity among Democrats and her own strong fundraising, McGrath is still unlikely to defeat the majority leader, who has held his US Senate ...

Trump retakes Iowa, gains in Florida in last Quinnipiac poll before election

Meanwhile Trump's support has grown in Florida, Iowa, and Pennsylvania — and enough so in Florida and Iowa to be well in contention of winning.In Flo...

NHL Central Scouting Releases 2021 NHL Draft Preliminary Ratings

Photo by Dave Reginek/Getty Images NHL Central Scouting released their initial set of ratings for the 2021 NHL Draft on Tuesday. If the 2020 Draft was a weird one for scouts because of the truncated season, this year, especially in the early going, may be even harder for scouts to peg. With this draft encompassing most of the 2003 birth year, scouts have really only been able to see those players play in actual games through the first half of their first junior season of hockey. Which is ...

Another Pollster Sees a Trump Win

The Trafalgar Group’s Robert Cahaly is an outlier among pollsters in that he thinks President Trump will carry Michigan, Pennsylvania, or both, and hence be reelected with roughly 280 electoral votes. (I explained his thinking here.) Last week another pollster, Jim Lee of Susquehanna Polling and Research, echoed some of Cahaly’s points about shy Trump voters being missed by pollsters. “There is definitely a submerged Trump vote,” Lee said. Asked for a prediction, he hedged a little but then pred...

Dispatch: Will Trump’s most loyal ally be punished? Democrats donate millions to unseat Lindsey Graham and flip the Senate

For those lining up to vote at the old library in downtown Charleston, the upcoming election is as much a referendum on Donald Trump's most loyal lieutenant as it is on the president himself. Mr Trump may be top of the ticket but Lindsey Graham, Republican grandee and staunch Trump ally, is key to the party's struggle to keep control of the Senate. The 65-year-old three-term incumbent senator is facing the toughest fight of his political life from Jaime Harrison, a rising Democrat star w...

The clock is ticking on Republicans' Senate advantage

For years the conventional wisdom has been that Republicans enjoy a healthy structural advantage in the race for the U.S. Senate. It's how Republicans were able to expand their majority in that chamber despite a brutal national environment in 2018, and it's how senators representing a minority of the U.S. population will be able to plow forward with Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court nomination before the election, confident that even if they kick away the Senate this year, it won'...

Why a Biden blowout is still the most likely result

Five weeks out from the 2020 presidential election, significant media attention is being given to the small possibility that President Donald Trump could again pull off a narrow Electoral College victory while losing the popular vote, or that even an Electoral College tie could push the election to the House. Those scenarios, though, are mainly making headlines because they're interesting fodder for the pundit class. All the data point to a big blowout victory for Democratic nominee Joe Bide...

Graham: ‘We’ve Got The Votes’ To Confirm Ginsburg Replacement Before Election

Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said late Monday that the GOP has the votes to fill the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Supreme Court seat. “We’ve got the votes to confirm justice Ginsburg’s replacement before the election,” Graham told Fox News’ Sean Hannity in an interview Monday. Graham said that the committee he oversees would “move forward” and report the nomination to the Senate floor “so we can vote before the election.” The comments come after President Donald Trum...

Trump's 'law and order' messaging isn't sticking with voters as new polls show they trust Biden more on public safety

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Alex Wong/Getty Images Former Vice President Joe Biden visited Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Thursday and met with the family of Jacob Blake, who was shot by police last month. Biden's trip was vastly different than Trump's two days earlier, when the president emphasized a return to "law and order." But Trump's messaging on the shooting and subsequent protests does not seem to be resonating with voters. Several new polls show that voters favor Biden to l...
