Re: Basketball thread
Tough win against a nasty USCe defense.

Still play slow and sloppy early, sometimes looking like we're moving in slow motion, but they're showing flashes of really good things.
You can keep a wooden stake in your trunk
On the off-chance that the fairy tales ain't bunk
And Imma keep a bottle of that funk
To get motel parking lot, balcony crunk.

Lot of points off the line...shot close to 80 percent.  Defense was fantastic tonight.  Sold out venue with an electric crowd.   Plus Ronnie Brown and Caddy in da house.

Re: Basketball thread
From my scenario a couple of pages back...


Lost to Vandy and Florida, check.  I had that down. 

Got a win over Mizzou, which I said we'd at worst split.  So we're there already. 

Beat SC, which I called a tossup and said we'd either beat them or Arkansas.  Book it. 

Right on track, it seems to me.

From the sounds of how the crowd was rocking,  I would say they almost had to be enjoyed  themselves.

Agree.

But it won't stop the peanut gallery uncle Ricos types from declaring us either: world beaters or worst team ever after every win/loss.

We will win the west!
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.

We didn't want to win anyway.
"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."

We just ended up a little flat. When teams have as much success as AU basketball, you have to fight that expectation of just having to show up. We will get it straight before March madness.

Re: Basketball thread
Oh come on, folks. That was a mercy loss.  Our Corch Pearl knows that nobody should have to endure more than 22 road losses in a row.  He took one for the conference.

Actually Cinnamon had a decent night.  Except for that 3 pointer he shot.

And those 5 times he tried to play point guard and turned the ball over on a fast break opportunity.
