Give Groce credit for keeping Illinois competitive as they played out the streak. The Spartans are a head-scratcher at this point.
The B1G tourney is going to be carnage. I always worry about the disparity in the refereeing between our conference play and the NCAAs, but I think most B1G teams will be more than happy to play a non-conference foe. I've rarely been so happy with a 10-8 record.
ESPN is giving this some pub, trying to create a story. This is a good decision. If a kid gets hurt in the 8th OT, they'd get crucified.
She's on her way out. He'll choose another clown. It's tough to find able captains who would want to take over a sinking ship.
The Curie loss in the first round of the playoffs was poetic justice, though, and a break for the IHSA.
Yardbird for brunch. Awesome and very, very fun people-watching in a decidedly un-icky Miami way.
Great Dean Smith article. Talk about an amazing life in basketball.
That Frank Martin/Pitbull tweet is fucking priceless.
I'm yelling "Timber!"
Oyster, I don't see a sarcasm font. Can this be true?
Still no offer, though, per Gene.
I thought Jake Butt was impressive last year for Michigan.
Said all the right things. Reminds me of McMillan's visits and interviews from last year.
Beckman can't recruit Illinois, either, so there's that...
May not be a bad time to address the very real possibility that we were way overrated at the beginning of the year based squarely on the last two years and our success in the tourney. Also, I really think that the Buckeyes and other B1G teams will benefit greatly from getting the hell out of conference play. I don't know if this will translate into two wins in the NCAA (which would satisfy me) or not, but I'm ready to see us against a non-conference foe.
And why didn't that autograph seeker start backing up slowly? Just seems like such an obvious move.
Nooooo! Skippy is thicker and richer. JIF has a weird, left out in the sun consistency. Too thin.
Good analysis and DJ does certainly get a lot of entertaining mileage out of Marion, or M'riun as the locals say it. I think the issue with the town, as I can see, is that it, is that it used to be fairly hum-drum, middle of America before the heroin and meth stormed in. My street, where my mom still lives, was of the pretty idyllic-riding bikes-pickup football games-street barbecue variety with families of mixed incomes all functioning in a pretty copacetic fashion.
So far this year there have been two house fires on that same street. Two. As we used to say when we were young, "It's busted."
As a former Marionaire, I can assure you that timeliness is meaningless as all of these whack-ass stories repeat themselves, in glorious twists and turns, repeatedly.
DJ's topless DUI before noon story though is tough to beat.
or college 2.0.
"Ain't no party like a Scranton party, 'cus a Scranton party don't stop."
I realize the article is in jest, but, from everything I've ever heard, MJ wins this one hands down. Even living in Chicago, you never, ever, ever heard stories about Jordan being anything less than an asshole.
Luckily, he was good as hell at basketball.
I would like Gus Johnson to officiate my funeral. Is that morbid?
Ha. I had his name on the tip of my tongue the whole time I was reading this extremely well-written article.
Seinfeld has many memorable catch-phrases and moments, but Cheers was the better show.
Meh. Not that bad of a call. Syracuse should be on a four-game losing streak now. They can't score more than 65 points all of a sudden.
This team is what it is. We have guys who can get to the hoop, but can't finish (Craft) and guys who can finish, but can't get to the hoop (Thompson). We'll go as far as our defensive intensity takes us, barring a horrific shooting effort. I don't think we need to shoot lights out to keep advancing, but we won't survive a 27% half in the tourney. It would be wise if we started calling plays for Q every third time down the floor, as well. He has basketball ADD.
Also, Minny plays like they're on crack, year in and year out.
