madness is comming

14 posts in this topic

it's getting on that time of year again! i can't wait, may have to call in sick on the first day. it's crazy how little fanfare college hoops gets out here in cali. too many pro teams i guess. or maybe not enough in the midwest. it's just too good to miss. cool.gif

Nothing better than March Madness. I am going to be on a cruise from the 24th-31st. I will be spending a lot of time in the sports bar the days there are games!!!! Who's your pick? I can't decide between UCLA or UNC.....

That Texas vs. A&M game last night was just a preview of what's to come. Let the madness begin!

My sleepers: Memphis and Louisville

as much as i hate to say it my only pick is ucla. not a big ucla guy, but they look pretty good. perhaps if another team has the right bracket, they could get the job done. florida is awesome, just no depth. i'd say unc is too young, but that really doesn't seem to matter anymore. i'd look for all red jerseyed big ten teams to get to the sweet 16, then all loose. the big 12 is a little down, i don't expect much from them. not sure about the big east teams or any of the other pac ten teams that were so hot early.

i just said alot of nothing, so i guess i'm still going with ucla frown.gif

I agree with a lot of what you are saying, but doesn't Texas look a lot like Syracuse when they made that great run a few years ago with Carmello. Carmello-Durant???? Playing good at the right time????

i lke durant, for a 'hot' team i like maryland. i went to iowa state, but will most often take a hot acc team over a hot big 12 team. that being said i can kinda see kansas making some noise. i realize that contadicts what i said earlier, but that's why they call it madness cool.gif

March Madness is far and away the best basketball of the year!

College basketball is still basketball. The NBA is not really basketball.

wow, what a weekend of ncaa hoops. after watching that kansas texas game, it makes me rethink my big 12 knock. they both looked like final 4 teams to me. and seeing ucla loose and ohio state struggle. it's gonna be a fun tourney.

watched the duke unc game today. i hate to say it but duke isn't even fun to watch. there were many times when there offense never made it inside the three point arc. not half the movement they had with reddick.

      I know its not attached to you. But the issue is with it being attached to the dog and if its running full speed and it gets caught on something. The injuries can occur when its a sudden stop and the collar around the neck is pulled hard from the weight of the dog.   Sounds like to you need to get back to the basics with the check cord and get back to sit, stay and come. You can work her with the check cord in a hallway at home with the doors closed, then move to a larger  grassy area etc. Keep the sessions short and praise, praise and praise some more when she comes back when called.   You never want to give a command you cant enforce and that's where the check cord comes in handy. We have all been there before. But if your not confident with her in the water next to a road you need to go back and revisit those commands and how to enforce them until she is ready. its just not worth risking injury.   You have to make the retrieving fun and if she doesn't bring it back your done for that session, and then she doesn't get to retrieve. Let her see you put the dummy away and then start another session at a later time. Praise, praise and praise when she does it correctly.   Dogs will pick up on your body language frustrations etc.  Just takes lots of reps and keep them short and be positive and she will get there.

      I actually don't have that long leash attatched to me. Its 100' I believe and the only reason I leave it on her is because Round Lake is right by a busy road so if she wants to bolt after a rabbit or something I can quickly grab that leash. Also sometimes she'll grab the dummy and want to swim around with it so I give a few tugs to let her know her job is to bring it to me, not swim in circles. It's just a safety measure because she isn't quite ready for fully off leash training just yet. I almost never actually need to grab it.    Thanks for the advice though, the last thing I'd ever want to do is hurt a dog, especially mine. I never throw the dummy past where it's safe to walk so if she did get it wrapped in cattails or something and got stuck I'd quickly get her.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.
