That was some terrible final possession defense from Ohio. I mean, Ayo is fast but they never stopped ball.

Oh yeah that was brutal, but to be honest kinda expected. You just knew he was gonna blow by them. But yeah they def needed more ball pressure early.

The foul actually slightly helped them because Cockburn had the easy put back since everyone went after Ayo.

Unfortunately for Ohio, so is Dosunmu

Are you going for stupid post of the year? Caught it with an open look and about 3 seconds left.  I mean, just say you hate him for his audacity to bolt on MU.   

Easy chum

I'm happy Xavier pulled off the win, but part of me is enjoying watching them struggle the last two games. It took awhile but the camaraderie of the Catholic 7 + 3 is slowly being replaced by an irrational hatred for our conference rivals. It feels nice.

I don't hate anyone in the conference. SHU was definitely on the list last year but with Powell gone the hate has dialed back a bit.

It was better for MU if X won that game so I was happy to see them pull it off.

My wife, who is from Poland, did it as she received as a gift. 
No surprise, it came back 97% Eastern European.  The 3% was Finnish which was interesting in only that I work for a Finnish company
My Finnish friends said way back when Finland was part of the Kingdom of Sweden and the Swedish king would draft the Finns to do the dirty work when war happened.
My mom was of 100% Finnish ancestry. She'd ask if we were finished with our meal...at 6, it was so funny to me to respond "I'm only half Finnish mom".

I heard many Finn stories around my grandpa's table, including his farm neighbors describe how they came from a town far away from the others back in the old country. In college I travelled through the same towns in NW Finland. But...A local cemetery bore all of the same last names as Grandpa's neighbors in Finlayson MN.

Turns out...They were only Kilometers apart in the old country... likely, travel by foot made the distances seem greater to their memory. A Swedish land broker,  Johan Finlayson, sold many families on a mass migration/land buy to Finlayson MN in the 1870's. Finn neighbors there became Finn neighbors here.

Finn surnames track the land feature of the family home example ; Kukkula (hill). The rest of Scandinavia,  pre 1900, took the surname by dads first name  Hansen, Anderson, Jensen...resulting in differing/confusing  surnames every generation. Of course, as ancestry buffs note ... much of the rest of Europe used land features (Hill, Ford,etc) or professions (Schneider, Mueller, Cooper).

 DNA tracking has improved the tracking of actual chains and sometimes surprised/corrected those whose surname history misled them to believe in other origins/connections
