Quemar los barcos!!! Remember that one, we can pull some big wins and win the Big Ten Tourney!!! GO BLUE
to play football, not to play trumpet
close, but not quite. your rallying cry needs a little work... unless i missed the discussion about incorporating demar dorsey into the queme.
Demar is watching at home and singing "O LET BURN 'EM! O LET BURN 'EM!"
where did this whole meme even come from? I get most of them but I never understood that one...
Burn the ships. No turning back..... Or something like that.
Last year during the tournament run, I'm not sure exactly when but sometime at the end of the regualr season, they wore practice shirts with that saying on the back.
IIRC, it was before the game at Minnesota, which was our last chance to get a good road victory in the regular season.
They got FREE practice shirts??? SOMEONE CALL THE FREEP!!!!!
Cortez said this to his men when they got to Central America. It means burn the boats, signifying that they were either going to conquer or die trying.
Beilein gave the team shirts with this written on them to let them know that failure was not an option.
Of course, the real version of events is not nearly as exciting as the legend:
"Fact: Cortes didn't burn his boats. Technically, he didn't even scuttle them. He did order the captains of nine ships to run their vessels onto the sand. But that left him with three other vessels -- and a master shipbuilder among the crew.
"Fact: Cortes wasn't "motivating" his men -- he was protecting his backside. According to Hugh Thomas's "The Conquest of Mexico," Cortes grounded the ships to win at palace politics in Spain. Cortes's Mexican mission revolved around his intense rivalry with Diego Velazquez, the governor of Cuba. When Cortes obtained his first boatload of treasure, he dispatched it to the king with three letters pleading his case for more power."
"Conquest" is also good.
Verb conjugation is your friend.
To burn the boats, or not to burn the boats? That is the question.
And a small miracle and we can win the Big Ten Tournament.
More like huge miracle
