I like Bill Snyder at Kansas State. 

Edit: I am the second person who likes Bill Snyder at Kansas State.

Also, the Orton bell tower also played the VT alma mater later that week. I wore the only maroon shirt I owned.

One of my greatest regrets in life is being unable to attend Ohio State's NIT game against Cal my sophomore year at St. John Arena. I remember the game, but I don't remember what I was doing that prevented me from attending... rookie mistake. I did go to the game against Dayton at the Schott and it was awesome, paradoxically, because there were a lot of Dayton fans there. 

I don't have a lot of experience with different venues for college basketball games - just the Schott and Virginia Tech's arena, which is like a slightly larger version of Jesse Owens North but with worse lighting. But for its faults, it has character and good acoustics - I think that's important. I cannot get over these big curtains at these venues - they must absorb sound like a sponge.

Oh Purdue. You deserve the misery in which you will rightfully wallow tonight, but the rest of the Big Ten does not deserve the mockery and disrespect it endures because of your consistent, never-ending ineptitude in a plethora of sports. I HATE PURDUE. The MAC exists because of schools like Purdue. Go join the MAC you losers. Oh how I hate Purdue.

Do what is best for them, but keep in mind that as they were loving parents and cared for you, as you said, what is in their best interest is directly correlated to what is in your best interest. By that, I mean that it sounds like they would not want to sacrifice your well-being for their own. I do not envy your position and wish you the best regardless of your decision.

You're absolutely right - he barely flinched and he took that foul like a man. He brought the ball upcourt and I didn't realize he had even been hit before the referee stopped play. At this point you've got to be tough and accept fouls, bad calls, and frustration, and move past them, which this team did.

It is so rewarding to see the heart, fire, and passion finally demonstrated by this team when we have known all season it was there! We wouldn't have gotten so frustrated with Thad and the team if we didn't think they were capable of a tough, gritty second half performance like that. Even when we know that this team's best effort isn't really all that amazing, it's still such a relief to see them commit that best effort. Great coaching job and great job by the players tonight against what I consider to be an extremely unlikable team and coach. I live in Blacksburg, Virginia and was watching at a bar just off campus at Virginia Tech. I walked past a group of silent VCU bros sitting at the bar on my way out after the final buzzer with more smugness than I even knew was possible. I would love nothing more than to feel that same smugness in Blacksburg on Labor Day!

I'm wearing mine right now (in the former Confederacy, no less) and have never felt so badass doing homework on a Sunday night in my life. Maybe I'll put the Sugar Bowl on in the background for the 22nd time to help me concentrate. Thanks 11W for the great shirt and Buckeye analysis.

Welcome Blacksburg Buckeye - I'm a student at VT and live in Blacksburg as well, but go Buckeyes :) 

BuckeyeMike - please don't start calling it that. I'm sure you weren't trying to be insensitive but you cannot use terms like "massacre" when referencing Virginia Tech. I'm not trying to be overly sensitive or start something here and I know you didn't mean it like that but as a VT student I know just how fresh it still seems here. I know Hokie fans will be welcoming to Buckeyes in September so we want to make sure we're appropriate as well.

That was one of the most infuriating sporting events I have ever watched. I'm usually very realistic about not blaming officiating and understanding that mistakes can happen and calls can go both ways, but that was absolutely preposterous. The fouls, both called and uncalled, the kicked ball, the jump ball-turned-timeout - I could not believe what I was seeing. And everything was compounded tenfold because I loathe Purdue and they belong in the damn Missouri Valley Conference.

Columbus' trajectory and influence is skyrocketing - it is just not the same city it was ten or fifteen years ago. The University District needs to keep up with Columbus becoming a more influential city, culturally and economically, and changes like this will continue the progress. I also have fond (and hazy) memories from Too's and Bernie's, but that doesn't mean the region shouldn't change and improve.
