2008, Uconn top 3 team in the country most of the season. Only 3 losses in the regular season:

Outscore Depaul by 22, but only 6 in the 1st half. Outscore Providence by 33, but only 4 in the 1st half. Beat Sjohns by 12, but 1 in the 1st half. Beat Mich at home by 8, but losing at half. Beat cuse by 14, but lead by 3 at half. Do they just make great adjustments at half time, or do the boys quit tanking for the campus bookie after the break? Does he get them stuck on bowl games and NFL playoff games, and have them make it up for him in the 1st half of b-ball games in Jan/Feb? Coincidence?

The next year 2009 was a banner year for us. I clued a few guys in at MW, and we went 23-2 combined between Uconn and Texas in the 1st half fade, and one of those we got wrong, was because THEY PLAYED EACH OTHER, and someone had to lead at half time (Tex).
