Lost audiobooks on iphone - lsumatt
I bought several audiobooks last summer from iTunes which were somewhat pricey. I replaced my iPhone in the fall with a new one and backed the phone on iCloud but now I can't find any of the audiobooks. Google search seems to suggest they don't get backed up on iCloud (wtf?) and attempting to dow...

re: Isn't Craig Victor a big man? - lsumatt
I may be in the minority, but I think Malone has the potential to improve a lot and be a strong starter his senior year if he sticks around. I think he is a decent 3 point shooter and that hasn't been visible this year (he shot over 40% last year and had nice touch. The fact that he continues to try...

The 8/9 seed myth (or not) - lsumatt
There is a lot of talk on here about how horrible it is to be an 8 or 9 seed and a 10 or 11 seed is so much better. I am not so sure. So I looked up some numbers since 1985 (when the tourney expanded to 64 teams). [link=(http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/ncaa-tournament/history/finalfour...

The fact that they were paired with the #1 overall team means they were a borderline 9 seed. And they were paired with a butler team that could have been a six seed themselves. ...
