I did not make this headline up
So it's been a pretty slow day here on the blog, and has been evident in the past couple posts. Hopefully I'm not adding to anyone's boredom, but I just had a chance to read Josh Bartelstein's blog update on MGoBlue, I strongly encourage you guys to read it.
The reason I felt like sharing this is because I know the team has had hit a rough patch in the last couple of games, and we have felt like taking it out on both players and coaches. This update, though, has helped me understand that this is an incredibly tough conference to compete in, let alone expect a conference championship from. The fact that the players understand how much is expected from them, how disappointing the last couple have been for us fans, too, and their optimism about the rest of the season and their full potential just gives me another reason to believe in their abilities to damage in March. So, again, just a little something on a late Saturday evening to cure a little boredom, hopefully... and I'm looking forward to the whoopin tomorrow! GO BLUE!!!
The latest installment of the Bartelstein Blog is up at mgoblue (LINK: http://www.mgoblue.com/sports/m-baskbl/archive/082411aab.html.)
There are several things he comments on.
- The team really loves the atmosphere of a big game where Crisler is rocking.
- Stu Douglass is doing an incredible job on defense.
- Trey Burke is an great, clutch player, and guys on the team knew this almost from the beginning of his time there last summer.
Also at mgoblue, Brandon posts about how tremendous it was to see Denard and Roundtree cheering at the basketball game, and how this reflects what is right with college sports.
