Do you find yourself talking to yourself very often?
Edit: Yes, you do. And, btw, this likely is a sign of some underlying serious psychological issue.

He gets off into his own little world sometimes, but it's okay.  They know him there.
Now I may be an idiot, but there is one thing I am not, sir, and that, sir, is an idiot.

I feel I am pretty important to myself.

Re: Basketball thread
Who is going Sat. for the USCe game?
Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Re: Basketball thread
Smoked by 20 tonight.  Never in it from the start. Down 26-11 before the 10 minute mark of the first half and only once, for a brief moment in time did they get it back to 10 late in the second half.  Go Gatah in control all the way.  No threat.

Don't know the exact percentage but I believe we were shooting right at 20% in the first half.  UF was much more talented, athletic, longer etc.  but that wasn't the problem.  We had numerous good looks at the basket both from three and within 5 feet.  This team can't shoot.  Harrell and Mason will give you the occasional streak but consistently, this team is awful from the floor. 

And the foul line?  UGH!!!!!!!!!!!  Holy poop, we're bad.  As I texted a couple of you...shoot even 40% from the floor and respectable from the line and this is a wild finish.  This team is more talented than recent years and they play hard from start to finish.  But....Holy damn we have no chance when we shoot like that.

Bowers.  I said it before. Please bring in Akeem, Sir Charles...somebody to teach this kid to play under control and have 2-3 "go-to moves" when he gets the ball.  Unlimited talent.  Just out of control.  He could be a 25/12 guy every single night if he'd just get it under control and have a plan when he touches the ball other than all out Tasmanian Devil mode.

Pearl is building something.  Unfortunately, this group is going to give us a few great moments but unless a miracle happens where they learn to shoot from the floor and especially from the line, we'll have to hope this next recruiting class brings a huge change. 
Boy, giraffes are selfish.  Just running around, looking out for #1....getting hit by lightning.....

Re: Basketball thread
I agree with the nuttless one.  I am seeing a lot of things I like as far as us getting in the right positions and just not executing.  I think Pearl is gonna make it rain during his reign.
"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shootty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Re: Basketball thread
If we were better at free throw shooting we would actually have been very much in the game with Gators. Same song, different team.

Have to hand it to them, they got within 10 or 12 late in the game. I had already conceded and we made a little run.

We're not in UF's league, yet. Hit from the line and we are.

You keep promising and never deliver.  I'm beginning to think you're just toying with my affections.

In some weird twisted way, I want to see that.  :facepalm:
