Georgia Tech appealing postseason ban, recruiting limits
The NCAA ruled in September that major recruiting violations were committed by one of head coach Josh Pastner's former assistants, Darryl LaBarrie, as well as an ex-friend, Ron Bell. Georgia Tech did not appeal the entire NCAA ruling, which included the forfeiture of all wins in which ineligible players were used, a fine of $5,000 plus 2% of the program's budget, and additional limits on recruiting.

NEW AGE POSTING
Duke's Tre Jones thrives in win; flop rule starting to flop
As a freshman last season, Duke's Tre Jones established himself as one of the best defenders in the country, but he was still overshadowed on a nightly basis by Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish. Jones was regularly the fourth option on the offensive end and wasn't counted on to be a big-time scorer. Heading into this season, however, it was understood that would have to change; Jones needed to be more of a scorer. And without Williamson, Barrett and Reddish, Jones has thrived. He had 30 points, 15 assists and just four turnovers in the first two games of the season, against Kansas and Colorado State, but the best offensive game of his career came in Friday's 74-63 victory against Georgia State.

Jones finished with 31 points, four 3-pointers, six assists and four steals -- and Duke needed all of those points to hold off the Panthers for the first 25 or so minutes of the game. While it was considered the No. 2 incoming group in the country, Duke's freshman class is obviously not at the same level as last season's. Every newcomer on the team has gone through some struggles through the first four games, and it's going to be a work in progress to figure things out consistently on the offensive end, he will buy coach Mike Krzyzewski some time to mold the freshmen.

Early returns on the new flop rule aren't great

While the extended 3-point line received more attention heading into the season, it is the NCAA's attempt to rid the sport of flopping that has made more of an impact in the first two weeks. The NCAA is treating flops like delay-of-game violations: The first offense is a warning, and the second offense is a Class B technical foul.

Now normally, this is where I'd post a pic of Mariner 10, but I think I'll shake things up a bit this time.

So instead, I'm gonna spam this son of a bitch with pics of Utsuho Reiuji - the girl from the video I posted in Blackfoot's "owned pawned trolled whatever" thread in SF. Don't worry, Mariner 10 will return. This is just to spice things up a bit. And why Utsuho? Well, aside from the previous vid.... I don't have a fucking clue. It's still more relevant to anything than what Blackfoot posts here.
