Re: Bairstow

I thought he played solid in the time he was in for the first half. I would have liked to see him get more time in the 2nd half. Coach Smith is just probably easing him into it. I think he has a very promising future. Yeah I dont really understand Coach's minutes for players and never have but he k...

Re: Who will be punished more in the polls?

Are we preemptively complaining now? I hate how biased the refs will have been in our next loss on the season! I think complaining about the inherent biases of the pollsters is far more justified and evidence-based than complaining about the refs lol if a big-name school had lost to St Mary’s on th...

My gut feeling is that mid-majors will almost always be punished more than high-majors, no matter the circumstances
