Ouch. For this team games like this are a definite must win. At this rate, it's highly possible that they finish out the regular season with 10 or 11 losses, which would mean we're looking at a potential bubble team for the tourney depending on how they do in the big ten tournament. I'd like to think they get it together and start playing better basketball, but they aren't instilling a ton of confidence at the moment. Can't lose games like this. Hope they can figure it out.
What a huge shit sandwich. This was a frustrating game to watch. As exciting as the offense has been this year, aspects of the defense have been equally as horrifying. I know there were great expectations going into the season, but it became pretty apparent that this team had some flaws (adequately defending a screen pass, as it turns out, being a big one). Congratulations on another good season, and congrats to Clemson on the win. I’m hoping Braxton stays, and the defensive issues get addressed, however that has to happen. And if I ever hear Matt Millen utter the words "hurtin' buckaroo" again, it will be too soon.
It's so bittersweet that I finally earned my 100th helmet sticker on that post.
The secondary has been suspect all year, but when you're at third and three in four down territory and you don't give Carlos Hyde the ball on third OR fourth down I just don't understand it. That's where we lost this one.
I think the Braylon Edwards video is being misinterpreted. I think he was just trying to pick that other gentleman up and accidentally dropped him, but that doesn't surprise me much. Dropping things is what Braylon spent his NFL career proving he was good at.
If his football skills are anything like his rap skills, Sparty isn't missing out on much.
Seconded. Two Hearted is probably my favorite beer.
I imagine Harvard students setting fires that adequately express their appreciation for the basketball program but will in no way jeopardize their future.
Sounds like Kelly may end up in Philly, and the Brownies may get Ken Whisenhunt. Can't say I'd be unhappy with that.
I think we've pinpointed the error in Gene Smith's decision making process. Using silly things like reason, logic and past precedent to attempt to determine what the NCAA was going to do.
Love the caption on that Mississippi State photo
The University should consider showing this video to prospective students who come in for a campus tour. It could help a lot of kids, and parents, decide if they're really up to the standard of excellence that is required to attend such a fine institution of higher learning.
In this age, almost anyone has a virtually unlimited supply of music at their fingertips at any given time, from any time period, or any genre. For the most part people have the ability to choose what they want to listen to, when they want to listen to it, and in what manner. In todays world, with a few exceptions, the only music you have to be subjected to is the music you choose. Your generation has it pretty good.
I love me some Black Keys, but this win has me feeling a little nostalgic, thinking back to the old victory video I celebrated to on many a night. A quick youtube search:
This win felt pretty damn good. Go Bucks!!
"I'm not a Fickell fan anymore"
Sure you are. You just spelled fickle the wrong way.
In what way(s) do you see Craft as an offensive liability?
It doesn't seem to be as much about personal feelings as it is about the relationship both of these attorneys have to the University. Being a professor at Auburn and being married to an employee of the university shows a potential conflict of interest. Similarly, if they were assigned to defend someone accused of murder, rape or robbery and the victim was their wife's or their own employer, I imagine they would probably ask the court to be excused from that representation as well.
Any quotes from Dallas Lighty?
Craft has been impressive from what I've seen so far. I'm most interested to see how he handles himself in this game. The Gators are going to test his abilities to handle the ball and run the floor. If he does well tonight, and shows that he can play against some real Division I talent, then I think this team is going to be scary good.
