Upsets! / Surprise results.
« on: November 12, 2019, 09:00:39 PM »
Ok. Some of these games require notice. Just because we are CBB fans.

We have a BEast results threat. How about one for surprise results or big upsets occurring all around CBB.

Kentucky loses to Evansville tonight!!

Auburn down 1 with 20 seconds left to South Alabama.

Davidson lost by 13 at Charlotte as 10 point favorites.

Kentucky had never lost at home as a #1 ranked team.  They were 39-0.
Evansville had never beaten a ranked team on the road.

I have voiced my concern about our game against Davidson, but this is two straight in which they've laid an egg. I'd rather them have saved these kinds of clunkers for us!

Kinda bummed Auburn pulled out their W.

Also bummed about Davidson. Was hoping they would ride into our game against them with a solid early resume.

Wow ... you and I actually agree on something, rocketman!

The No. 1 team in the country just lost at home to a team that was 11-21 last year, which was 44-53 the last three seasons, and which hasn't made the NCAA tourney in 20 years.

But if we lose tonight to Purdue, it will be the most horrendous loss in the history of mankind.

Nope. It'll just be a loss.

Happens to all coaches/programs.

The better the coach/program the less frequently.

A little perspective:  Marquette was 2-4 against Evansville during my years on campus.  Sure, we'll find things to complain about, but always remember how awful things can be.  At one point when we were in the MCC, Evansville was kind of a mini-rivalry and they had the better of it.
Go Marquette!

Wasn't their claim to fame back then that they wore jerseys with sleeves?

EDIT:  Yes!  Jim Crews brought back sleeved jerseys in the mid-80s and they stayed unitl the early 2000s

That rivalry spawned the 13 point play

Has not been a great start to the season for our non-con opponents.

I mean, in the 5 years surrounding Marquette's time in the MCC (+1 year on each side), Evansville won the conference 3 times and won 25ish games.  Jim Crews had them cooking.  I remember Purple Aces from being a kid and it wasn't random, they were a very legit mid major team for awhile.

As for last night, they definitely tightened up and got spooked towards the end, but Kentucky just had no interest in taking the game away from them.  Incredible win and maybe a program builder for Walter McCartney

Wait, really? I never would have known this. Looks like we're 4-4 all time against the fightin' Purple Aces
