well that's just, like, your opinion, man
Title says it all, or most of it: Who do you want tomorrow, who do you expect to win?
I see the argument that Wisconsin can go over the top against Kentucky as persuasive; I want a Big Ten win, and I think that Wiscy can take them. And something deeply cynical inside me says Calipari wins anyway.
I will also be rooting for Duke for the first time in my life. Well, I may have rooted for them against UNLV, because Tark was the devil then that Cal is now. I was still a kid; but maybe that means I was more idealistic. Anyway, I resented Tarkanian having the audacity to die around the same time Dean Smith did. Tark couldn't hold Dean Smith's jock.
In fact, I want to see MSU go down badly, E. Lansing furniture lighting up the night, visible from the international space station.
Great Austin Hatch story from mgoblue.com: LINK
"He's like a father figure to me," Hatch said of Beilein. "I've lost that, and he's a lot like my father in terms of the quality man he is and how solid he is in character, goals and integrity. He's a family man who genuinely cares about people. So, it's really been a blessing for me to be involved in a program that's led by a man like him."
"Not only is he a father figure to me and all my brothers. And by 'my brothers,' I'm referring to my teammates. He does everything the right way -- he doesn't ever sacrifice honesty or integrity. The man is truly one of a kind." That comment made Hatch think of his own father, a doctor who always made time for him and loved family deeply, and a question he was asked about his father in an ESPN feature that aired Feb. 8.
"Chris Connelly asked me, 'Were you ever angry at your father?' I said, 'Never, never. My father was the man of the millennium.' In terms of how genuinely caring and solid as Coach Beilein is, Coach Beilein's right there with him. I've been very blessed to have such great men in my life."
Is somebody cutting onions in here?EDIT: Austin's name now in the title, because LongLiveBo asked so nicely.
The Kings will be honoring Stauskas' new nickname with "Sauce Castillo Night" on 4/5 against the Jazz. All fans will receive a "Sauce Castillo" hot sauce, and special edition shirts will be sold in the team store.
On the court, Stauskas' shooting has improved greatly since the start of March, shooting 47% from 3s, and averaged 7.4 ppg, playing 19.6 min/pg.
In a span of about four hours tonight, both Terran Petteway and Walter Pitchford have announced their intentions to forego their senior seasons and enter the 2015 NBA Draft. Petteway has an outside shot at going late in the 2nd round, while Pitchford is almost certainly bound for Europe or the D-League. That takes away about 41% of Nebraska's scoring last season. When combined with graduating seniors, Nebraska will also be losing all but one of the players on their roster over 6'7. Pitchford's announcement contained some talk of frustration over how last season played out:
I have put my past frustration of this past year aside and will do what is in my best interest in life
The departures almost certainly push Nebraska towards the bottom of the Big Ten for next season, barring some kind of fortune on the graduate transfer market.
Petteway now says no decision has been made and that he'll meet with Miles next week.
The article is pretty short but it discuss the possilbility of this move for Max.
"I have spoken to Coach Wardle and there is an interest to potentially come," he said. "I'm currently just weighing my other options."
