What you just heard from my opponent is an attack on my integrity and my character. And I will not reply in kind. Instead, I will take those remarks and tuck them away, away in a tiny "lock-box," where all bad thoughts go.




I have to admit it is quite curious you originally listed Chris Lewis as DPOY and in your "final" picks you switched, almost magically, to Amir Bell. That's gonna bring out the conspiracy theorists......

I do find it interesting that Chris Lewis was the only non unanimous 1st teamer. Who in the world didn't think he was first team?

HA! No that quote is a joke - it's from the SNL Bush-Gore debates... which was peak SNL. If you don't remember Darrell Hammond doing Al Gore, it was simply amazing.

But seriously... Amir Bell as DPOY. Biggest question I have: is he the DPOY... on Princeton? It's really close. I like Stephens more, but it's close.

You should remember but tuck them away -- high road is always better than the low road. I thought that your picks made very good sense when first released.

Au contraire, mon frere. Peak SNL was Dan Aykroyd as Jimmy Carter talking down a possible drug overdose. "Do you have any Allman Brothers?"

Some of the coaches seem to have gotten struck with a sudden case of Bell's Palsy.

I *never* should have started a "peak SNL" debate. I just loved that 2000s era though because it could consistently make it to Weekend Update with gold material, which was no small feat.

Amir Bell is a big surprise, especially coming from such a mediocre defensive team. I am shocked the DPOY wasn't from one of the two best defenses in the league, which is the main reason they are also the two best teams in the league by a large margin. Shocked.

Bassey, Lewis, Brodeur, any of those I would have picked before Bell.

Problem was... only one of those was an option to pick.

Touchy subject, Mike. Tread lightly.

Darrell Hammond as Bill Clinton, doing a review on Weekend Update of The American President, is one of my all time favorites.

It's hard to argue with the 1970s SNL. Such a talented cast. Gilda Radner doing Roseann Roseannadanna on Weekend Update never got old. Man, was that hysterical.

And there was no ILT back then when the Quakers were in the Final Four!

Lorne Michaels says that by far the dominant subject people stop him to talk about is their opinion on which era of SNL is best.

He says people almost always tell him it is whichever time period coincided when they were something like 18-20.

Which I can confirm, since obviously the late 70's SNL was best.

In the couple games I watched for defense closely I did actually think Bell had a bit more impact. I still took Stephens for the season based on history / on-off splits / reputation but maybe that was a bit lazy.

Anyway it's a weird outcome. Bell/Stephens weren't the reason Princeton's defense was bad this year, but I think you need a really good case to pick someone from a below-average defense when isolating individual contributions is so hard.

I'm happy for Bell, who brought it every night on D and made life very difficult for his man, but Lewis seemed like more of an eraser. Maybe foul propensity was a factor.

Lewis not being on the ballot was a big factor...

Assume from your prior comment that AJ wasn’t either. Who from penn? Foreman?

Either that or Harvard managed to put somebody besides Lewis and Bassey up, which seems hard to believe.

Based on Mike's prior posts, I'd assume that Coach Amaker proposed Justin Bassey for DOP. Maybe because Chris Lewis was being considered for POY.

So how this work? You're not allowed to nominate a player for more than a certain number of categories?
