Because he was sticking it to the administration!

He did a great job that year when you take into consideration how much Larry Williams demotivated him.

Why do you call Taylor and Cohen mid major players?  Because they transferred to mid majors?

Honest question:  If Jamal Cain, Greg Elliott, Sacar Anim, or Dexter Akanno were to transfer, right now, in this very moment, do you think they’d end up at mid majors, or high majors?

The guys you mention on our team were 3 star kids, the guys Lenny mentioned were 4 stars.  Steve Taylor has three years at MU and never averaged more than 6 points a game, decent rebounder but the excelled at the mid major level.  Cohen was pedestrian at MU (yes he had medical issues) and mid major a better fit.  Juan, disappointing for his rating and what he produced over four years.

Ratings can be wrong, that year’s crop didn’t align with their rating in my opinion.

Not a huge surprise, but UW goes down by 10 to Richmond. I don’t think that was a very good badger team that kicked our ass last week.
Well, when a team wins their Super Bowl, there bound to have a let down the next week

I don't think it was a very good F%cky team that kicked our ass last week, either.

Nor did I think it was a very good UW-Green Bay team that beat Buzz the year we went to the Elite Eight. Nor did I think it was a very good Evansville team that waltzed into Lexington and beat Kentucky a couple weeks ago.

As for F%cky losing to the Spiders, I know I'm probably supposed to want our opponents to win because it will help us come March, but it is impossible for me to root for F%cky. So I love seeing them lose any game any time.

Buzz got Larry fired. Why would he have been “demotivated?”
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

You're exactly right, this shouldn't shock ANYONE. That is an at best UW team(still don't think they make the tourney) and a pretty good Richmond team.

And of course, the Varmints shot 7-27 , 3pt/fg .... 25.9%   :-\

EDIT:   Sorry, but it was supposed to be BLUE, not teal..  SO I changed it...lol    8-)

While saying he wanted a NIT bid before the Big East tournament, after it and on the day the bids came out...

Both Cincy and UCLA struggling early.

UCLA lost to BYU after the Hofstra game
Cincy lost to Bowling Green and then taken to OT by Valpo.

Having lived in Richmond for 28 years, I especially enjoyed watching them take down Wisconsin.

I was really hoping that Davison would get a 2nd call for flopping but at least a ref finally nailed him with a warning. Got to hand it to the jerk- he's been good at fooling the refs in the past, but with the rules this year he is not getting away with it.

I know you put that in teal, but you didn't need to. It's a fact.

Had F%cky shot that same percentage against us, they'd have made 5 fewer 3s. That's 15 freakin' points.

We were down only 7 (58-51) with 7:52 to play. The next 1:40 went Davison 3, Elliott TO, Trice 3, Theo TO, Pritzl 3. Game over.

Of course, we also shot nearly 50% from 3 that game and still lost.

Wide open 3s are made at a much higher percentage than contested ones.
Not all 3s are created equal.

I watched last night's game for 10 minutes, and F%cky took several open 3s during that stretch. Missed all but one of 'em. Also took a couple contested 3s and missed them, too.

2-26 from three, the Badgers shot in a 59-50 loss to New Mexico. Where was that when I traveled to Madison two Sunday's ago.

Badgers drop one to New Mexico.  It’ll be interesting to see what happens with Gard if his team has a bad year and misses the tournament.  I feel like Barry Alvarez never really liked making that hire.  Bo Ryan forced him into it by retiring mid-season, and Gard’s early tournament success made it difficult to justify not keeping him.

I don't think the Badgers will be any good this year, despite the way they thrashed MU.  Next year they should be pretty good with all the seniors and RS seniors.  After that it is all Gard's recruits and I think they'll be on the decline.

In no way do I think we deserved to win that game vs. Madison, but their outrageous 3pt% that game vs. their average this season is really upsetting to see.

Three point shooting on the season.  Home-39/100 39%.  Neutral-12/46 26%. First true road game next.

We got the one game when F%cky was hot from 3, especially at the key juncture of the game.

It happens. There have been a few games we have won the last 2-3 years because of our 3-point shooting. The difference, of course, is that we actually were a good 3-point shooting team.

Whiskey has a talent deficit. Being "scrappy" is wonderful when those scrappy players are also quite talented, when you have a guy like Happ in the middle, etc. When scrappy is all you've got, you end up being scrappy without the "s."
