|02/09/2019 - 2:11pm||That slam was the PERFECT…||That slam was the PERFECT way to end this game and my thoughts of Wisconsin basketball. Fuck you, Badgers! Enjoy the ride home.|
|01/31/2019 - 5:31pm||I went to Crisler for the…||I went to Crisler for the last home game several years ago against Purdue. It was Robbie Hummel's last regular season game (it felt like he was a 9th year senior at that point.). Purdue was mediocre. They were headed for the NIT. We had already won at Mackey earlier in the season and we were undefeated at home. I thought we were safe. But Purdue came out and drained everything. Played waaaay beyond their abilities and won. It was disgusting.|
|01/27/2019 - 3:06pm||Stupid Sparty pisses me off…||Stupid Sparty pisses me off even when they lose. They should have stayed down 23. The almost comeback should be enough to probably rise them 2 spots in the polls.|
|01/26/2019 - 1:54pm||What the hell are you doing,…||What the hell are you doing, Nebraska? Maybe practice more and spend less time binge watching those flat screens in your bathroom stalls that you love to brag about so much.|
|01/26/2019 - 12:08am||They blocked a punt in a…||They blocked a punt in a driving rainstorm and recovered for the game winning points a couple plays later. If not for that punt, it would be 39 in a row over them. Always despised them in basketball but after how dirty they played us in football a couple months ago, I hate them there now too.|
|01/26/2019 - 12:00am||I don't care how bad Indiana…||I don't care how bad Indiana is playing. I'm extremely happy with this outcome. That arena has been a house of horrors forever. The 89 national championship team lost there by a point. The Fab Five lost there by a point. And like Notre Dame Stadium in football, they can be completely awful but magically put everything together when Michigan comes to town....and the officiating is almost always horrible (when we went down there with Burke and Stauskas, Michigan had already been called for two fouls just 9 seconds into the game.) So fuck them and their home court. Blowing them out of that arena is such beautiful porn.|
|01/23/2019 - 9:51am||Indeed. I can't stand…||Indeed. I can't stand playing there. I sense this game will be like Wisconsin only much more whistles against us since its at Assembly. I'm not looking forward to it.|
|01/22/2019 - 11:30pm||He got it off. I was just…||He got it off. I was just expecting the replay to be bad before they even showed it because that's what the game felt like at that point. This was very much like last year's Minnesota game at Crisler. The Gophers played waaaay better than expected and sank a three in the last minute to go to OT.|
|01/22/2019 - 10:40pm||I always can't imagine…||I always can't imagine winning AT Indiana no matter the scenario because IU will probably be in the bonus with about 16 minutes left in the first half.|
|01/22/2019 - 10:37pm||With the way the end of that…||With the way the end of that game was going, I fully expected Matthews' shot to be waved off for getting the ball out about .000000000001 seconds too late. Glad I was wrong. Our free throw shooting continues to induce vomit. If Poole doesn't miss both free throws that last minute, we probably don't need to win on a buzzer beater.|
|01/18/2019 - 11:47am||*sigh* I hate going to that…||
*sigh* I hate going to that arena, even with how bad Wisconsin has looked lately. Because I don't expect them to look that bad against us.
Is it possible that when Bo Ryan left, he took Wisconsin's voodoo ability to drain every single miracle shot they attempt with him? Or is that wishful thinking?
This game has long been predicted to be our first loss by the "media experts."
|01/16/2019 - 9:52am||"You mean, like having to…||
"You mean, like having to change the day I grocery shop so my 3 kids don't see a photo of their mom demonstrating what was done to her body? Tell me more about how enjoyable this spotlight is." ~ Rachel Denhollander
|01/14/2019 - 10:07pm||So I'll get the logical…||So I'll get the logical thing out of the way first; rankings mean nothing. In college basketball, you can start the tournament unranked and be national champion at the end of it. With that said, I'd still like to be ranked #1 for at least a little while. We had about a day to enjoy it in 2013. But we'll be facing a Wisconsin team who will be desperate and traditionally has pulled miracles out of their asses against us.|
|01/14/2019 - 10:03pm||That would be the most Duke…||That would be the most Duke thing ever. Beat Virginia Saturday and that will be justification for staying #1 in the polls, despite two losses.|
|01/14/2019 - 8:07am||Not just a POSBANG for the…||
Not just a POSBANG for the best start but I'm always happy to beat Northwestern, seeing that they've been a pain in the ass on the court the last few years. The fluky stuff and endless NBA three's tend to happen more when we play in Evanston. But I'll definitely take a 20 point win over them. Yes, I will.
|01/12/2019 - 7:45pm||I fear they'll drain every…||I fear they'll drain every miracle shot they can when we come to town, per usual.|
|01/12/2019 - 6:44pm||The ending of that game was…||The ending of that game was tedious. Endless timeouts between both teams then Valentine having to review two calls (possession and time) and when it FINALLY happens, FSU leaves Duke open for the most wide open three point attempt shot in history. I was cursing before the ball left his hands. Happy the Buckeyes lost yet again, though.|
|01/11/2019 - 8:44am||It's astounding to me how…||
Obviously very happy with the team overall. But It's astounding to me how many opponents end the first half by draining a three against us. I expect that shot to go in at this point.
|01/10/2019 - 9:28am||That was almost as…||
That was almost as appetizing as this...
|01/09/2019 - 9:27pm||And in more fairness to…||
And in more fairness to Rutgers, they tried desperately to throw that game away by letting OSU go on a 16-3 run and take the lead.
They nearly Rutgers' themselves out of a win but won anyway. That's got to hurt even more for the folks in America's worst state. Good.
|01/09/2019 - 9:19pm||Hehehehe.
Rutgers tried to…
Rutgers tried to desperately Rutgers that game away, and yet they STILL won. LOVE IT!!!
|01/09/2019 - 10:39am||Meh. I hate both teams so…||
Meh. I hate both teams so much that it's like watching ND/MSU in football. I go back and forth so many times before just praying for the meteor.
|01/09/2019 - 8:28am||God, I hate having to root…||
God, I hate having to root for North Carolina basketball. But I have no choice this year.
|01/08/2019 - 9:44am||The media has been drooling…||
The media has been drooling over MSU ever since they destroyed Northwestern last week. Beating OSU this past weekend will no doubt elevate their status to the greatest team of all time.
That's what happens when Izzo is your coach.
|01/08/2019 - 9:31am||You sound like me.
You sound like me.
Other than the Peach Bowl (obviously) I didn't watch a single bowl game this year. Not even to root against ND and Sparty (although I was very happy to hear they lost).
That's how much the Ohio State game kicked my ass. I just couldn't take any more football.
|01/07/2019 - 11:51am||I missed the Chatman shot. …||
I missed the Chatman shot. I turned the game off with about a minute and half to go, us down 6 I think. Don't remember the exact score at the time.
I despise Indiana basketball and couldn't stomach seeing them win again.
Went to get my haircut. While I was waiting, I begrudgingly looked up the final score on my phone and found out we won.
Guess I deserved that.
|01/07/2019 - 11:41am||I got burned out on Alabama…||
I got burned out on Alabama years ago. And I've convinced myself to stop watching them during the opening college football weekend as well because it takes a ton of fun out of the sport when you already know in week one that Bama is going all the way...again.
You can only watch the billionaire win the lottery so many times before you get fed up with the madness.
I have no intention of watching this game.
|01/07/2019 - 11:31am||You're expecting a great…||
You're expecting a great game at IU? I expect to see the Hoosiers in the bonus with 16 minutes left in the first half.
|12/21/2018 - 11:02am||I plan on watching that…||
I plan on watching that tonight. It's a holiday must every year.
|12/18/2018 - 10:28am||Kind of surprised the…||
Kind of surprised the Binghamton game is sold out. Even with how good the team has been playing.
It's also the day before New Year's Eve. Really didn't expect too many people to show up to that one.
|12/17/2018 - 2:14pm||I still love watching the…||
I still love watching the highlights of that North Carolina game.
HATE those guys with a passion.
|12/14/2018 - 10:23am||You sparked my curiosity…||
You sparked my curiosity with South Dakota State/Savannah State so I looked it up.
SD State made 23 three pointers, was 53 of 87 shooting (both school records) and the halftime score was 90-33. Woof.
|12/14/2018 - 10:09am||Indeed. And this scheduling…||
Indeed. And this scheduling was done before Beilein, even when we weren't good enough to beat those extra cupcake-cupcakes during the holiday season.
It's just common sense. It would have been a dick move to have that North Carolina game on December 28th.
|12/09/2018 - 1:48pm||This kind of reminds me of…||This kind of reminds me of USC. Before Pete Carroll arrived, the Trojans were so awful they were openly mocked in the media, often referred to as SC Community College. Once Carroll arrived, it took just one year to go from unranked to the top 5 and then national title contention every year after. You couldn't help but raise an eyebrow over how quickly this happened. We know how that eventually turned out. There's no way in hell Alabama is on the up and up here either. And that's concerning because their success has been even more dominant and this repeated script got old years ago. Your football juices are burning in late August and then you watch Alabama in week one and you already know at that moment they're going all the way. Alabama has sucked a ton of fun out of college football as a whole. And Saban is so beloved by every aspect of the media that I'm sure they would assist Bama in hiding the bodies before they would ever have another Pete Carroll fallout.|
|12/04/2018 - 11:23pm||I've grown a strong hatred…||I've grown a strong hatred towards Northwestern basketball the last three years. So I'm taking this win and being happy despite its many flaws. I hate how those guys become a whole different team when they go up against us. They need to do that when they play that OTHER school from the state of Michigan. Get your damn priorities straight. This middle finger is for you, Northwestern. And I hope this one really hurts. Go blue.|
|12/04/2018 - 10:23am||I hate to bring this up but…||
I hate to bring this up but...
*Three years ago when we traveled to Northwestern, we lost in double overtime. There were 5 separate times I thought we had the win wrapped up and then every 3 point prayer NU threw up somehow went in over and over and over. It was maddening.
*Two years ago when we traveled to Northwestern, Irvin's attempted game winner was way off, NU goes coast to coast in 2 seconds and get the buzzer beater...ESPN has a clip they show ENDLESSLY for the rest of the year.
*Last year when we traveled to Northwestern, there was no miracles for once, but still a loss. The game at Crisler was ugly and uninspired. This one was just...stupid.
It's because of these games that I have grown a hatred towards Northwestern basketball and I'm not thrilled over the thought of playing there, all this in spite of the fact of how great our guys have looked so far.
|12/01/2018 - 8:22pm||Team is playing amazing. …||Team is playing amazing. Really makes me want to go to a game. But I banned myself from Crisler four years ago after I took notice of my 1-7 record in that building. They're playing too well for me to risk it.|
|12/01/2018 - 7:45pm||Fucking Alabama. Watching…||
Fucking Alabama. Watching them is like watching a billionaire win the Publusher’s Clearinghouse.
|11/29/2018 - 11:25am||(No subject)|

...thanks to bad officiating.
|11/29/2018 - 9:38am||I still can't stop smiling. …||
I still can't stop smiling. I despise North Carolina as much as I despise Duke.
In the back of my head, I kept thinking this was going to be like the OT loss to Kansas at Crisler a few years back or the game against #1 Arizona when Mitch Mcgary was called for a phantom foul allowing the Wildcats to shoot the game winning free throws with 1 second left. Fight back enough to just barely lose and get an A for effort. This was NOT how I expected this game to turn out.
That 17-2 run after North Carolina was draining every shot they took was absolutely huge. I'm going to be watching the highlights of this one endlessly.
|11/29/2018 - 9:25am||I was pretty devastated when…||
I was pretty devastated when I found out Dickie V was calling our game. The amount of orgasms he has over North Carolina and Duke year after year is astounding.
And screw him for bringing up the Ohio State football game 3 separate times. And screw him for getting the jollies of Notre Dame football at the end of the game.
I'm sooooooo happy about the result but Dickie V needs to stay at the Dean Center and Cameron Indoor where his maximum excitement can flourish with everyone else.
|11/20/2018 - 11:51am||Fair points.
As Homer Simpson said, "Your views intrigue me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter."

You're being overly generous towards that ugly giant erector set of a stadium.
|11/20/2018 - 11:20am||UCLA took advantage of the…||
UCLA took advantage of the rivalry when USC sucked in the 90's but couldn't get the program going except for the few years they had Cade McNoun. They were a last second field goal away from playing our 97 national champ team in the Rose Bowl.
But you're still right. USC has had so many down periods outside of Pete Carroll getting the best players money could buy. UCLA has done nothing to take advantage of this.
|11/19/2018 - 3:58pm||Sigh

|Sigh Henson 14/25 for 303 yards, 3 passing touchdowns and running the naked bootleg in. That was some massive porn.|

|11/19/2018 - 2:09pm||I guess I can't lose sleep…||
I guess I can't lose sleep over this. Because every scenario in my head always lands with OSU reaping the benefits of the best case scenario going in to this game. That's what happens when you're dead inside after seeing the same evil force NEVER come down to Earth.
