Turtle Talk Tallies: Comments and recs report from the week of March 3

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

ES46NE10, SpinningGamera, & Molly Geary take home the commenting awards this week.

Happy Monday all! What an emotional win yesterday. Couldn't have been more proud with their effort and execution. Makes me hopeful that they can string a few more of these types of games together, even if it is in the NIT. Hope you enjoy this week's installment of Turtle Talk Tallies.

Here are some general stats for the week:

30% of this week's Total Recs came from the UVA post-game article.

Total Comments were up 6.4 % and Total Recs were up 71% from last week.

SpinningGamera's Total Recs were up 42% from last week, but his rec to comment ratio was down 11.5%.

Total Comments

Top commenter this week goes to ES46NE10, beating out englandumd by a nose. England, you should have posted a M-A-R-Y-L-A-N-D in the UVA post-game thread. Now you'll have to live with a silver medal until next week. Congrats ES46NE10.

I have to admit, the Kool-Aid guy was clutch and props for it not even being a .gif. However, it was not quite as clutch as Layman's free throw shooting vs. UVA. Sorry Gamera, maybe next time.
