OK, for sh*ts and giggles I went over to that board and their topic on court storms and saw this gem.

"one of th reasons why the '82 Brewers did not win the world series....was that after beating California in a dramatic game 5...the fans stormed the field and started hugging Ben Oglivie as he was running in from LF....after Carew bounced out to Yount...he hurt his ribs and was not able to supply the power hitting that he did that entire yr..."

LOL. He hurt his ribs when he ran into a wall. Which is why Mark Brouhard started Game 4 and famously had a big game.

But of course...elipses...

This is why Marquette fans are blessed to have Ben Steele, Anonymous Eagle, Cracked Sidewalks and Paint Touches.

Imagine Dodds being the utmost authority on the inner workings of Marquette basketball. 
Ramsey head thoroughly up his ass.

We jinxed '82 by storming the field after game 5 against the Cardinals. A great memory storming the field, but it was a bit premature. For the record, I stormed County Stadium in '81 and twice in '82. Great memories!!

Chase Ross was wearing a boot today after sustaining an ankle injury against Xavier on Sunday.

They could really use him available tomorrow against PCs bigger guards.

had a SRO tic that day and ran on the County Stadium field. Awesome day. I think I still have the tic stub somewhere, in fact. And no, I didn’t go near any players!

An all time great sport’s memory in my lifetime. I would do it all over again. A great day and memory with my Dad.

3 more to go. The way this team is playing at home is amazing. Hopefully next Wednesday vs Uconn will be no different.

Really, it is down to the next 2 and TKo's health.   Creighton is a monster at home and UConn is just a monster.   I will be happy splitting.   And I honestly don't care which one is a win.

I agree that a split of the next 2 would be quite acceptable, and, with the momentum now, it feels very doable.

If, though, we prefer to avoid both Creighton and UConn in the BEast tourney until the finals, then it would be preferable to beat Creighton on Saturday (and "give" the 1-seed to UConn).

Winning one of the next 2 would be wonderful.

If Kolek is out it would be remarkable.

Huh??

The best way to avoid both is to take the 1 seed.

Won’t happen. But yeah, giving UConn the 1 is not the preferable route

If the assumption (going with Tower's happy premise) that splitting the next two happens...

and

if the assumption is that we'd like to avoid both UConn and Creighton until the BEast finals...

then, given various permutations, it would be preferable that our (one) win (of the next two games) is @Creighton.

That's all. Do you agree?

Yeah cause it guarantees Creighton goes to 7 Ls

If fully healthy, we absolutely can beat UConn next week. But I just don't see them losing another game other than that one, and we need help to catch them even if we go 3-0.

So I agree with those about the importance of Saturday's game. A win in Omaha coupled with UConn crushing Seton Hall on Sunday guarantees us no worse than the #2 seed.

I'm fine with not catching them if we can somehow have Creighton meet Uconn in the semifinals. In order for that to happen we would need Creighton to lose the final two vs Marquette and @Nova, while Seton hall wins 2 of the last 3. Seton Hall has to finish with a better record as they went 0-2 vs Creighton.
