With everything going on right now, I admire your commitment sir.
Illinois looks like garbage. Wisconsin is sound on defense and all that but holy hell set up an offense for a few seconds before throwing up garbage once in a while.
Also, I commend you VCavman24 for doing something other than "sitting around and waiting for news to happen". No offense guys, football is important, but it's okay if you find out 15 minutes later, let alone the next morning, than/after other people
Good that Minnesota won. We need our win over them to count as a quality RPI win.
Colorado: 29 free throws
Washington State: 1 Free throw
The refs are trying to keep the PAC 12 relevant
I kinda thought the excitement regarding Illinois was a bit premature.
Although Wisky is legit, for sure. I've been saying for a while now that they've impressed me more than MSU or OSU.
Isn't there premature Illinois excitement every fucking season??
Carolina are the literal definition of 'gameraisers'. 4-0 vs ranked teams. 7-5(?) vs unranked teams. Truly pathetic. So smalltime.
Wisconsin may push basketball back 10 years, but I'm scared they might also make a run to the title game. Illinois is overrated, but they are just shutting down teams defensively.
WIsconsin doesn't have a game it should lose left on it's schedule. The hardest games they have left are MSU/OSU at home, and @Indiana/Michigan/Iowa. They easily have the easiest schedule not having to play at OSU or MSU and are playing well right now. They will probably slip up and lose a couple, but the rest of the schedule looks pretty good and they could come into AA undefeated and ranked #1.
Just watched them beat the home town team (Yale) last night. this is the team that lost by 1 at Cameron Indoor. What was remarkable to me was their attitude/disposition: scrsppy with a massive coo on their shoulder. at times it looked like they had 5 Marshall Henderson's out there.
did I say "coo"? I meant "chip". because there's no such thing as having a "coo on your shoulder". That I know of, anyway.
Damn you, autocorrect
