Final score of a basketball game. BRUTAL!
nothing like beating on a team full of special kids
Brutal, I can't believe they'd continue to hammer them like that. Similar to that 82-0 hockey game. I remember when we were a Atom AAA team waaaay back in the day. We took a trip to Florida to play a couple teams. This was before hockey caught on down there. Their teams were made up of guys from about 9-10 years old, to 16-17. They didn't have divisions. We had a couple close games, but this one team was brutal. We had something like a 10-0 lead after the 1st. The one thing I remember was making a pass from the corner towards the front of the net and it hit someone and went in.......I was benched for the rest of the period for scoring a goal. Thats how it should be in an embarrassment like that, especially when kids are involved.
We had our asses whooped by Middleton in junior high 106-20something. It was our first look at a full court press. Most of us didn't know they existed. They pulled the starters off after about 10 mins when it was 38-2.
This is the dilemma top college football teams run into when faced with weaker sides. Run up the score and risk the wrath of the public and the media or tone down your offence and hurt your national rankings when your top ranked team only beat Central Iowa State by three scores.
I don't believe in mercy rule. The whole point is to score.

The winningcoach got fired!
I heard that on the radio this morning, it's pretty dumb.
Play to win, never let up. It develops bad habits.
I can see maybe letting up. It's still good practice passing properly but firing the coach because he detroyed another team is stupid.
