Great TD! Thanks for hosting. Totally in my wheelhouse from a time period perspective; still couldn't pull out a top 10 finish. Thanks in large part to the 11-point sheep on Hank Gathers. Hank Gathers(!). Perhaps I would have done better had the question been, which player shot a free throw left handed in Loyola Marymount's next game to honor Gathers. Of course if 11 people knew Gathers as the answer to the original question, I'm sure they know the answer to the free throw shooter.

Thanks for the TD! I was in last place for awhile, but clawed my way out by the end.

I got a singleton on the first question and I was wrong on the next. During the reveal of my incorrect answer, I rode the roller coaster of emotions of being happy to see that my answer wasn't among the sheep, to even wondering if I got a singleton, then seeing my name under the incorrect answers.

Thanks for the TD. But as I said upthread, if I had remembered Gathers's name, I would have joined the supersheep and wouldn't have won. So I pulled a reverse Homer.

Heh, of course I blow the wheelhouse college football question. Not sure how I got that GT squad (1990) mixed up with Washington (1991).

I knew that as well, and remembered their seed/NCAAs result also (Elite 8, 11-seed). I'm almost more curious to find out who knew that part.

Anyways, thanks as always for hosting, clt!
