I understand why BG is a heavy favorite, but this same stuff was said about Miami Central before their game with DM. DM put a running clock on them. I'm a certified homer so I'm predicting a 35-34 win for DM.

I'd love to see Dematha win but I doubt it honestly. 

I think many will be surprised with how tough Dematha is.

Is it true that DeMatha bused this trip to Vegas?

Ha. Good one. Their flight landed yesterday afternoon and they practiced at Faith Lutheran later in the evening.

 As a side note, these schools both have subpar team names.

Actually, Gaels is quite fitting, especially for this weekend in Las Vegas.  Gael mascot is an Irish/Celtic warrior.

Starting tomorrow night there will be an Irish uprising that will continue Saturday night at T-Mobileview.image?Id=863

I saw something like 93% of the bets in Vegas are on Conor

Including mine.  I got him at +5.50 and also threw in a few early round KO bets. If Conor wins and especially if it's an early KO the books are going to get killed.  Sharp $ will start coming in the next few days to even things up a bit, but sportsbooks need a Mayweather win

I dont believe Conor can win at all. He wont be able to catch Mayweather as he dances around the ring. Conor will be exhausted by round 4. I dont believe there is any chance of a KO unless Conor catches Mayweather with something that Mayweather doesnt see coming but i really dont expect it. I dont believe this fight is anything more then a glorified sparring session to make millions

He shouldn't, but that's why I'm getting 5 1/2 times odds.  Im a huge Conor fan and hope it's an entertaining fight & not just Mayweather running around all night.  McGregor has nothing to lose & I'd expect him to come out firing and throwing everything in the first 4-5 rounds.  Maybe he catches Mayweather being cocky and finishes him up.  Then the rematch conspiracy talk can start & both will stand to make even more $

Every Mayweather fight is a glorified sparring match. He is too big of a puss to go in and actually fight his opponent.

Block. Block. Block. Jab. Run away. Block. Block. Block. Jab. Run away.

By far the most boring boxer I've seen fight.

I guess I'll stick up for The Stag. DeMatha is technically named after St. John DeMatha. St. John DeMatha founded the Order of the Most Holy Trinity with his parents money and was tasked with the freeing of Christians from Moorish captivity during The Crusades. All of this was sparked by a dream where he saw a White Stag with a red and blue cross above its head. It's a more personal way of being called "The DeMatha Crusaders". In modern terms, he was a rich guy who used his trust fund to fight ISIS.

Ive already heard that they have the rematch lined up. Itll be in the octagon. The only reason i may watch this fight is because the local bar is showing it for free. Mayweather is gonna run. thats what he does. be prepared for him to do it.

Fair enough. Still sounds like I'm going to a party solo.

Nope. Didn't watch much boxing until the last 6 or 8 years. What have you done for me lately kind of thing.

Gotcha. If you want to see him when he came up, Youtube one of his fights from the late 90s. He was just as elusive, but he would pounce on guys and knock them out or get a TKO when he saw an edge. As close to perfect in execution in the sport as it gets.

I was only a preteen in those days and had no interest. I just feel his hype is based off of a period of time that is nearly two decades in the past. The way he fights now is not what the masses want to see for a primetime slot on the fight card.

Add to that, he boasts and showboats as if he is a true fighter, which he is not. Especially his joking on Conor losing three fights knowing good and well he would be TKO'd or forced into submission by some amateurs in the octagon.

      Ok, let's get a game discussion going and something different than the Rab rants. Some of you probably saw Dematha against BG earlier in the season. Some of you also probably saw SJC versus DLS or SJR. So, who do we like in this game? Dematha is coming off two straight losses to Gonzaga and OLGC. SJC has two big wins since that tough loss to SJB. Last year SJC lost to Dematha during the regular season and in the championship, do they play with a chip on their shoulder and get the win or is this a trap game for SJC and Dematha pulls the upset.
