Gee.  I wonder who changed the tone.  Hmmmm....

that's like saying, i don't like what you are saying so i can gut punch you?  that was a really rough time for chicos as it would be for anyone.  some things should be off-limits-bringing up the loss of someone very close to you as a beat-down, is about as low as one can go. 

    not sure of where you draw the line up in the frozen tundra there sully, but this one was pretty cold

I have no idea what PTM was referencing. I was talking about Cheek’s “blame the media” line that he trotted out for no good reason. Just because he knew what the reaction would be. It’s tiring.

Pretty good for a student athlete and higher than most of the MU players during the Deane era, I can tell you that.  Many student athletes do better, but a crap ton do not...especially in certain sports.

No good reason...the Georgetown player stated it in his response to why he was leaving.  It was literally PART OF HIS COMMENTS, so the reason was that it was listed in his comments.

Biggest excuse by people who do dumb crap. “It wasn’t me but the media...”. The guy was in a police report. The media reported that. The media didn’t make up his situation. They didn’t make him do the dumb crap. He is accused of doing it by someone else who got their roommate to also fill out a report.  That is criminal if they lied.  The media did not do that. And “the media” is really social media responding to the dumb sh*t that he is accused of doing.

Amplification by media can distort reality or downright convict in the public opinion sphere.  Endless examples.

The media didn’t issue the restraining orders against Alexander and Gardner.

Galen Alexander isn’t at Georgetown because of Galen Alexander, not the media.

Who was fired?

In this situation...you can resign or be fired...pick one.   In a different situation during that regime, Monarch was fired.

...And Georgetown goes out and beats Syracuse. The kids who stayed are still battling.

'Cuse will always be one of those teams I automatically root against and probably still will years from now. Same with Louisville.

And still far better than the Buzz era.
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

They're down to 7 scholarship players. That would be tough to play through for any program. Beating a rival makes it that much better. Sorry you're not impressed

Georgetown did not have any foul issues until very late in the game.  That limited the guys coming off the bench.  If in upcoming games they have foul issues, they are in trouble.  Four starters played 36 minutes.

Cuse had foul issues. 
Free throws:  Georgetown 24 for 31
                     Cuse            5 for 9

In 1986, my first full year living in Minneapolis, the Gophers had several players dismissed over sexual assault allegations. They were down to 6 scholarship players, and the coach (Jim Dutcher) quit in protest.

Their next game, they stunned an Ohio State team that included future NBA players Dennis Hopson and Brad Sellers. The game after that, they played very tough before losing a close game against Indiana (with Alford), and they then beat Iowa (Roy Marble, Andre Banks, Brad Lohaus, BJ Armstrong). Minnesota's "Iron 5" lineup was getting national attention.

That lasted less than 2 weeks. The Gophers were clobbered by Michigan, the first of 8 straight losses to close out the season.

So we'll see how Georgetown does over the long haul here.

Doesn’t matter. It’s their #1 rival. Wisconsin isn’t good this year either. Still a big game. And GTown is completely depleted.

Props to Mac McClung and the other guys who had nothing to do with the crapshow and
are battling. Shows character.

It shows Syracuse isn’t that good.

Many thought Georgetown would go 0-3 in this stretch. Impressive wins at Oklahoma State, at SMU and Syracuse.

I certainly was not giving GT a thumbs-down. Glad they got some impressive wins for the BEast.

Just saying it's too early to tell how good they will be during the conference season because having so few scholarship players, and losing a pretty dynamic (at least at times) PG, could take its toll.
