Jimmy V Classic

5 posts in this topic

Lots of good college basketball games coming up this week, gearing up for the Jimmy V classic.

I know this isn't really basketball related, but I think his ESPY speech is a great one. A great speech really motivates and moves people, makes them laugh and makes them cry. This speech does just that.

There wasn't any discussion about the ACC/Big 11 tourney, but I've been meaning to ask.....

Is the Big 11 ever going to be competitive in the ACC/Big 11 tourney? I think the ACC might as well pull out and start it up with the Big East instead. The style of the Big 11 can't hold up to the playing style of the ACC. Never has, never will. Seems like the point has been made after a decade or so of whoopin's. grin

It's about money.... just a pinch more playing the Big Ten teams.

Yeah, probably about the buck. The ACC top teams dominate the top Big Ten teams and then it's kind of a toss up between the mediocre and lesser teams. They'll probably keep going with it, for like you guys say, the dollar bills, but the ACC would be better off playing the Big East or Pac 10. Maybe matchup the Big Ten and Big XII?

Even in years when the Big Ten is strong they lose the challenge. The best basketball is consistently played in the ACC.

      Sorry for the late response.  I was on the ice Friday-Monday fishing with our pro staff group.  We fished each morning for tuilibees and fished a few lakes and wow can you see a difference between lakes!  5 miles away and you go from average size of 19" to 13".  My buddy Scott who produced the video and the skinny guy is using I think a Wicked 13 Long stem reel which a spring broke in the bail this weekend.  I am using either a 13 FreeFall or a 13 Black Betty 6061 inline reel.  I like the in line reels better then the spinning reels and I wont be switching back for my ice fishing gear.  When its warmer out I like the FreeFall because I can drop the line with just one hand and not have to worry about hitting the button to drop it and then reel in some to get it to lock into place.  Scott I think is using a 32" St Croix rod, he switches between a light and a medium rod depending on his mood lol and I'm using a Yogi Custom Rod 32" Medium Light (Blue) and my other rod is a 32" medium rod (Black) I switch between them so its hard to keep them straight.  If your looking for a good rod he does 100% custom rods so you pick action tip eyelets colors string handles its pretty awesome and if your looking at the top end ones you get off the shelf you are paying about the same for a custom rod from him.     Fish were very hit and miss this weekend.  We caught a few in a few different holes but nothing great but yesterday we tried a new hole and instantly started getting them on top of the ice.  Will be trying that spot this weekend if I can get out on the ice.  I hate fishing solo just in case something happens out there and my fishing partner is heading Devils Lake for a week.  We had a ton of guys come by and see what we were doing that were "Seasoned Tuilibee Fisherman" that were using the 3" daredevil and told us what we were using wasn't going to be working get frustrated and leave because we were putting fish topside and they were only getting sniffers.  Our rig that has worked great for us is a 1/8 oz Kastmaster (Gold, Silver, or Rainbow Trout) with about 14-16" of line drop to a 4 or 5 mm tungstun jig (White, Pink, or Silver) loaded with wax worms.

      Go to Fleet or the Cabala's and look at all their small tackle, hunting or shooting cases.
