I believe there are virtually no recruits for next year. Where DO we go from here?
How appropriate for the ill-prepared Tigers to crash and burn on Pearl Harbor Day! What a miserable performance. Justin's touching faith in Paxton Lynch was rewarded by his Chosen One playing (yet-another) stupid game. The guy has talent, but not a CLUE as to how to lead a team...
I have no idea of where Tiger football goes from here, except down the tubes! k
PS A tribute to how amazing this miserable day was. On this day-of-national-championship days, when there's lots of distractions, ESPN singled out five great performances. One of them, believe it or not, was Casey Cochran's record-setting achievements on behalf of UConn against our sorry excuse for a football team.
PPS Drop football, and solve the budget deficit at U of M. This is going nowhere, with or without Fuente.
PPPS I almost traveled to the game. Thanking my lucky stars i didn't!
Perfectly pitched, this, Kevin, and i hope we can count on haikus all mid-season long.
It will be an unseemly season, one way or t'other, and I sense we will need more spiritual awareness than usual to get through this difficult "Middle Passage" en route to who knows where.
The good news? Josh Pastner is not putting up flashcards on the sideline.
Compared to the Bull market in Chicago turning to super-bearish, this is almost easy news to take. The several silver linings to this cloud include (a) Opportunity for Koustas to get well-grounded by playing mega-minutes; (b) Opportunity to see once and for all just what (if anything) Ed Davis has to offer; and (c) Opportunity to shift Zack occasionally to Center and play Miller as a 4, where his agedness is better protected than as a guard, assuming he doesn't get injured as he historically always has...
Bottom line: i'd rather be a Griz fan than a Bull-runner.
After six years of fermentation, this reads better than ever. One of the great hoax masterpieces of all time! Out-onions the Onion in each and every paragraph; in fact, the Onion should reprint this asap for Death Week, with full credit to Akers, Herrington and the Flyer, of course.
I agree with Herschel. Always been a Kirilenko fan, and happen to believe that Prince is in his "sunset years," and it's almost dark
As Chris says, a couple of made free throws, and the Griz would be cruisin' towards Miami, so it's hard to beat up too much on Hollins, Gasol, Tony, etc. But the one guy who's got me puzzled is ZeBo. I know, he's getting defensed pretty damn well by this exceptional defensive team, but he's looked completely lost out on the floor much of the time, out of position for rebounds, moving in slow-mo (even for him). His Game #3 double-double was maybe the quietest i've ever seen.
