Playing for the SoCon title tonight (also playing for the women's title) on ESPN 2.

We have the best FT shooter in the country.

Have to get by CofC though who are leaving the conference. If we make it we will have our usual shot of a first round upset. Usualy play tough for a half as a 10-12 seed and then fade due to athleticism Beat WVU and Vandy this year and hung tough with New Mexico and Duke for a half.

fug The cats....go Cougars!

J/k, they have had a great year. It's a rebounding year for the CofC. I would have never thought CofC would make it to the final round. We have been choke artists in the tourney every year. It would be amazing to pull off an upset, but I don't see that happening!

Best of luck tonight!

Davidson is always a dangerous matchup in the NCAA tournament, especially for teams that don't play physical basketball. They don't have exceptional athletes though, so teams that play aggressive and physical basketball will handle them with little problem. It will be interesting to see who they are paired up against if they make the field of 68.

    • Calvin Pryor sucks he's getting cut at some point they just drafted two guys that can disguise their blitz looks as both Maye and Adams can do a lot of the same things. Jets safety's are going to be beastly, and it's not like their front is bad either with Richardson and Wilkerson but I don't even know who is playing QB for them
    • Some of you may remember that I'm a banjo player and studying classical guitar and music composition at East Carolina University. This was my senior year and for my senior composition recital I composed a 40 minute chamber opera. I heavily borrowed from traditional folk songs from The Anthology of American Folk Music (good composers borrow, great composers steal - Igor Stravinsky). The idea was original to be about a 20 minute telling of the story from The House Carpenter, but after researching the history of the ballad, I decided to do a telling of the Scottish Daemon Lover version of the story and mix elements of other ballads into the story. I used a lot of melodies from the ballads that I used, though a lot of times you'll have words from one ballad, mixed with the melody from another. It's a large thing so I'm giving a link to download it from dropbox. I hope some of you are interested enough to listen. If you're not, who can blame you, move along and enjoy your day. The Daemon Lover Below is a description of each scene. Act 1
      Scene 1
      The House Carpenter is building a cabin in the mountains win a demon comes to see him. He says he must give himself or one of his family as a sacrifice. The House Carpenter says to take his wife, because she has no ability to make money for their children. Scene 2
      Jane Reynolds is alone at him and tells the story of her long lost love, James Harris. The House Carpenter returns home and tells her that he has to go out of town on a business trip. Jane Reynolds tries to convince him to stay, but she is unsuccessful. Scene 3
      Jane Reynolds is alone at home when the demon comes to fetch her disguised as her lost love, James Harris. He convinces her to go away with him and leave her children with the House Carpenter. Act 2
      Scene 1
      Less than 2 weeks later the demon and Jane Reynolds are at sea. Jane Reynolds begins to have second thoughts about leaving her family for James Harris. The demon grows tired of this and reveals himself to her. Scene 2
      The House Carpenter is living with deep regret for what he’s done to Jane Reynolds. He reveals that she is a witch, and if he hangs himself the spell the demon has on her will be lifted. The House Carpenter hangs himself. Scene 3
      After the House Carpenter hangs himself, Jane Reynolds can feel her witchcraft return to her. She makes the demon a mortal man and punctures the boat. The boat sinks and Janes Reynolds and the demon drown at sea. Below are the program notes for the piece When I was fifteen my Grandfather pulled a banjo down from his attic and told me if I could learn to play it I could have it. A few years later I discovered The Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith. The music contained on those six CDs opened my eyes to an “old, weird America” that I had no idea even existed. I learned how to play and sing every ballad on it, and it was these songs that gave me confidence to major in music. I’ve felt for the last couple years that the deeper I get into classical theory and technique, the further I’m getting away from these folk songs that have been so important to me. This chamber opera is my attempt to reconnect a little bit with some of these ballads. “The Daemon Lover” is a traditional Scottish ballad that is known as “The House Carpenter” in America. The story in this opera is basically that song, with a few story elements added that come from other folk songs. These songs include “The Old Lady and the Devil, Butcher’s Boy, The Cuckoo, Omie Wise, and The Drunkard’s Special. The melodies are also taken from folk songs, though often the words are taken from one folk song and sung with the melody of another one.
