If you’ve been around as long as most of us here have it takes a lot to get discouraged but this is one of those weekends. I’ll call it a Mardi Gras hangover and we just woke up in some sleazebag in Bangkok.

I’ll call this finding Mike Tyson’s tiger in your hotel suite. Bonus!

The bright side is that tomorrow is a new day, where you don't see a UCSB on the schedule, and every day after that.
...Unfortunately, McNeese will come to town on Tuesday with a strength that plays right into our weakness. and a weakness that plays into our strength, sure

Avert your eyes if gorillaball isn't to your liking.

"Esteemed company"!

Quote:
Vanderbilt: Expectations were high for Bryce Drew’s Commodores when five-star guard Darius Garland committed back in November 2017. That train, however, was entirely derailed just over a year later when Garland tore his ACL. Now, the Commodores ended the regular season as one of just four teams in Division I to finish without a conference win, placing them in esteemed company with Portland, Tulane and Chicago State. They’ll always have that near upset of then-No. 1 Tennessee, though. —JW

Ona-Embo gets better with each game he misses. Listening to the announcers the other day you would think we were missing Magic Johnson at the point. Just saw the other thread. I wasn't wrong about Magic.

Not only did we go winless in the AAC, but I believe we were winless against the Sun Belt, Colonial and Big West conferences as well.

Something to be said for consistency!

Of course.

Every game the ESPN announcers use Ona-Embo’s injury as though it is a valid excuse for how bad we have been.

Can’t resist an opportunity to recall a time from your teams when I was home for a break. ESPN showed we had won a game and stat line said something like “posse: 45 points, 22 rebounds, 12 assists and 6 steals.” With a straight face, a high school friend says to me “Who is Posse? Those numbers are insane. Any chance the Knicks draft him.”

The same announcers who give Dunleavy credit for developing Magic, Shaq, Sabonis, Rasheed, etc.

They have to find something nice to say, they're not just going to openly rip us.
