Many of Dantonio's comments suggest penis envy.
Also, many of his comments make about as much sense as mixing Rick Astley with Nirvana...
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Probably...||
I agree that he wll probably go pro, but I'd hate to see it. I have a hard time watching pro ball these days. The pro game hasn't appealed to me for many years -- it just seems not nearly as passionate as the college game. I can't put my finger on all the reasons.
One could argue the same for football (I prefer college football over pro by a factor of ten), but the "yuck factor" differences in basketball from one level to the next seem more pronounced.
So, while it may not be the best decision from a monetary standpoint, I'd like to see Trey come back and enjoy college while he can.
|6 weeks 8 hours ago||That...||
...and missed free throws.
|6 weeks 14 hours ago||I'm haunted too, and to me...||
...the physical nature of the game was waaaay out of hand. Half of Patino's team should have fouled out of that game. L'ville was rewarded for their overly aggressive play and I'm sure Patino at halftime told his guys to get rough because he knew by then the refs wouldn't have the guts to call fouls.
The only minor criticism I had while watching during the 2nd half was our coach's decision to put Spike and Trey in at the same time. I understand the thought process, but they each need the ball in their hands to be effective. I sure didn't like it at the time.
In hindsight, the "basketbrawl" style of the 2nd half, some not-so-great decisions by our guys (Trey and Tim overplaying a bit) and our missed free throws cost us.
All-in-all, a nice effort, but we were mugged in the 2nd half.
|6 weeks 22 hours ago||All I know...||
...is that was one of the most physical games I've seen in a long time. BasketBrawl is a more apt name. L'ville's aggression was rewarded tonight.
The boys played as well as they could. Just wish we could made all of our free throws.
Big round of applause to coaches and team for a fine season.

...It's time for Hoke to introduce the new "Sasquatch formation" with PeeWee taking snaps.
Seriously, get well fast Russell!
|7 weeks 2 days ago||The only thing...||
...the only thing objective statistics can't factor in is the relative emotional gravity of the game situation. The late-round tournament scenario makes the comeback even more dynamic vis-a-vis a comeback during the regular season when wins and losses don't have quite the same dramatic impact.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||And they call it...||
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I think...||
...we're doing okay. It could be much worse. If we can connect a few 3-balls in the 2nd half, we'll be right there.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Well...||
It looks like we're gonna need to hit from three with consistency to stay in this one.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Did Indiana...||
Did Indiana cut down our nets?? I really want to know.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||I kept shouting...||
...at our guys to "BLOCK OUT!!" Apparently, they didn't hear me.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Well...||
It would be really great to see Denard run under 4.3, but I'm thinking it's more likely he'll end up in the 4.4 range. Usually top-end speed is a function of running with controlled technique as much as effort. I'm thinking the immense pressure will take a few ticks off his time as he may paradoxically try a bit too hard to be fast, if that makes any sense.
He should still put up a very respectable time if he's healthy. If he runs sub 4.4 in that environment with all eyes on him, I'll be amazed.
Just my humble opinion.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||I heard this is winning Derrick over:|
|37 weeks 6 days ago||I loved...||
...his statement, "and he's a poor thrower..." then Denard completes a "poor throw" to Gallon.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||Karsch...||
...keeps giving away all of our secrets! ; )
|37 weeks 6 days ago||I'd do this play...|
|38 weeks 14 hours ago||Seriously...||
...I had a dream last night that we were ahead by about 3 or 4 points with 1:09 to play and 'Bama had the ball. It was up to our defense...
Of course, I woke up before the clock expired!

...if there's a corn dog, he'll find it.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||Well....||
...this was sadly inevitable. I have no idea whether he cheated or not, but the powers that be wanted him dethroned. Did the controlling legal authorities offer quid pro quo arrangements with these other cyclists in exchange for their testimonies? I'm tempted to think they did.
I lost my wife to cancer two years ago, so to me, anyone who survives systemic cancer and goes on to win arguably the most difficult physical test on the planet seven times in a row deserves the benefit of the doubt.
No positive tests? No case in my mind.

... Peewee, he probably did it for dramatic effect to magnify his comeback!
(Kidding, of course.)

|39 weeks 5 days ago||I liked...||
...the repetitive name part... but that was about it.
|39 weeks 5 days ago||I like...||
...#15. Respectable, and yet takes the pressure off. We have a few "unknowns" that have to be examined. We could quickly move up from #15 with some signature wins.

...he kinda looks like that Thor character, doesn't he?
