If Sam's shot had not counted
« on: January 10, 2019, 12:08:28 PM »
1.  Would you think the refs made the right call?
2.  Would you think that Wojo was an idiot?
3.   What kind of mood would you be in today?

YES
NO
Same.  Expected yesterday to be a narrow loss, but was a narrow win.

Yes.
No.
Not the same. I was fine with a loss last night so I wouldn't have taken it too poorly, but I'm elated today! Didn't get much sleep and my mood is still through the roof.

Probably would be way more productive at work instead of watching highlights for the 10000th time

1. Yes
2. No
3.  Same as normal.  Wouldn't be thinking about it much.  I am much happier today than I would have been had the shot not counted.

Also, Tower, Did you have a write up ready to go for the loss? If so, what did it say?

1. No, after seeing replay it looked good out of his hand. I think it was objectively correct.
2. No, why ask this question?...there seems to be an ongoing thot from a few people that a significant number of scoopers irrationally criticize Wojo. Most criticism of Wojo I see is measured...and plenty of compliments.   “Fire Wojo” Straw man again.
3. Sure mood different. Exhilarating win verse a close loss. I can’t see a real fan having the same response win or lose especially like that.

1. Yes
2. No
3. I was happy we won but resigned to losing. I did not think we could come back down by five in the closing seconds of regulation. Had we lost I would be concerned this team will really struggle on the road. Huge win for the team.

1. Yes

3. Worse, obviously. If your mood is the exact same after a huge win vs a heartbreaking loss, why are you even a fan?

1. No, only reason being is it was called good on the court and I didn't see conclusive evidence to overturn it.
2. No.
3. Slightly worse.

1. It depends. I think whatever the call on the floor was had to stand. Had they said no shot and not overturned it, so be it. But if they used the monitor to overturn the call they actually made on the floor I wouldn't agree.

2. No, I had already said on Twitter that no matter the result, his coaching had turned the game and given us a chance. Very well coached game.

3. Not as good. Not just the exuberance of the shot, but all the ramifications. We got to see delightful overtime Markus. Our Big East title & NCAA hopes are significantly better. I'm not as on the ledge as guru, but these results have more sway over my mood than any other team by far. Sam definitely put an extra spring in my step today.

1. Yes, i think the refs got it wrong but too close to over turn.

2.  I have not been overly critical of wojo. I thought his coaching job of our tourney team was excellent, people were bitching we underacheived that season i think we over acheived. I think he has done a good job, just need to keep upgradingbthe talent and his coaching “ability” will get better. 

3.  Not much different but agree with the replays, articles, productivity , eyc

1. Yes. The refs did not have enough information in the video they had to overturn the call on the floor. It would have been the wrong call but I would have understood.

2. Yes. The team is 13-0 this year if you don't count Wojo's 3 losses. Fire Wojo.

3. Good. I had already come to terms with losing that game. Creighton kept hitting shots. I was shocked when it went to OT. I would have been fine today knowing that Creighton had a hot shooting night.

1.  Yes.  Focusing on the initial call, not the decision on replay.  I think the shot was a fraction of a second late.  But I don't think there was conclusive evidence to justify changing the call.
2.  No.
3.  My mood would be pretty much normal with a low-level disappointment that we'd lost another one on the road.  As opposed to the current state of semi-elation and lingering disbelief. 
Go Marquette!

I will add that on item #3 i was initially disappointed with our defense but the last 28 minutes of regulation our defense was really really good.  apart from a 49% fter going 13-14 and them banking in two threes MUs defense would have carried the day to a really nice road victory.  So even if we had not won, what i witnessed over the last 75% of the game gave me confidence that we could play good defense on the road and we were trending upwards!!

1. Yes. I mean no.  I will swear on a stack of religious documents of my choice that ball was in mid-air when the horn sounded. From the deflated sound in the arena, others believed the same.
2. Of course not. It was all about Markus’s turnovers.
3.  Really Grumpy. And avoiding Scoop.
