Article in the trib points out the need for home game in the coming play-in-game. It looks to be a very important part of winning that game. Yet to get that homefield advantage we need to win 2/3 against the very team on the road that stands to get it by just winning 2/3 at home. Ouch!

Good article and good point. The most extreme example of home field advantage I've seen in sports is in college basketball at Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium. Not only are visiting teams intimidated by the history and the claustrophobic atmosphere, the referees appear intimidated as well. I've never seen Coach K get a technical foul in that building despite his occasionally screaming expletives at refs. And the foul calls do tend to lean in Duke's favor as well.

Since 1997, Duke's record at Cameron is an astonishing 234-16. That includes seven seasons in which Duke went undefeated at home. That's insane.

Bad news or great opportunity? At any rate, the last three games are significant and I can't wait to see it play out. Set your DVR's boys and girls. These might be keepers.
