    Default Rookie-Sophomore Game

    The Rookie-Sophomore game is comprised of the top 9 rookies and sophomores who did not qualify for the main all-star game. It will be scored as the starters + top 2 bench players. The coaches as always are the two highest scoring veterans who didnt qualify for the main all star game, which are myself (in what feels like an annual tradition) and Kusux. I'll coach the rookies, Kusux will coach the sophomores.

    Rookies
    Sophomores
    Pay the Choll Toll (55.5) LesterLoko (55.5)
    ZonaZoo2014 (55.5) SDcatFan (54.5)
    Kdogsr. (54.5) LVAZBB (54)
    swanface (54) losgatos8484 (54)
    finnmaccoul (54) catsbackontop (54)
    indy97 (52.5) AzJunky (54)
    Jeff (52.5) Papadeuce (53)
    Hellas (52) cjw2222 (53)
    davewallace (51.5) BRASH-Smash (53)


    Coaches post your lineups in this topic.

    I feel like I've been demoted to the D league... LOL. It's alright - we are righting the ship after the Oregon State curse threw our season a curveball! It's also time for us old folks to show the rookies how its done...

    I must be the oldest rookie in history. I am bringing the pain!

    "We played in Maui and beat Kansas, lost to Michigan State in overtime and lost to Connecticut. That's not quite like losing to Sisters of the Poor. If you want to be ranked, you really need to play those kinds of teams. But if you want to be recognized in the RPI, you need to play the good teams. So that's been a little bit of our story." — Lute Olson

    You did that all on your own when you decided to go the free agency route after last season and signed with the Pick'em equivalent of the Kansas City Royals...

    Haven't seen any Silver Foxes stepping up to start a new team...and stop defending Gatos--I have been spurned and have every right to make irrational allegations about his choice to leave us.

    Why am I not on the Rookie team? I have 52.5 points according to the recently-posted scoring chart.

    Is this because I'm white?

    You guys be careful with Fin, he's just coming off his broken hip. Make sure he gets his meds on time and is wearing his medic alert bracelet at all times.

    Glad to see the Chronic are well represented in this game.

    Apps, don't pull a Coach K on me and use this as a recruiting event.

    he has rookie hazing duties that supersede his pickemz duties. You should see his Bourbon collection. We do a good job of keeping it in constant need of resupply.
