unfortunatly you also can't teach heart, toughness and work ethic. so all of these athletic freaks who've been AAU superstars their entire life and have a sense of entitlement get to college and marginaly develop.

meanwhile the guys a run below them go to the mid-majors, stay for 4 years, develop their game, become quicker based on good solid fundamentals... and george mason beats uconn to go to the final four.

give me butler any day. they may not win it all, but they're fun to watch and they play the game the way it's supposed to be played.
i agree with all of what you said. a&m has a 7 ft freshman (Deandre jordan) that was one of the top recruits in the nation and i have never seen a more fundamentally flawed player. makes thabeet's play last year look great. perfect example of the super freak athlete who cannot do a thing outside of dunk the ball.

while i do enjoy watching the mid majors, i also don't think uconn is as bad as you are saying.

interesting point about the top recruits and their fundamental flaws and /or work ethic. isn't that why gillespie is bombing at uk? no one wants to work their asses off, and play great defense. it worked well at utep and a&m when he had no big time recruits, and the bought into his system. the vandy game was clearly a team not buying into their coach's way of doing things. no way you should have a game like that ever, even if the talent is somewhat down.

glad to hear you at least hung with st anthony's. your description doesn't suprise me at all. saw them play a few years ago in the chick-fil-a classic in columbia sc, and it was about the same as you described.

hurley is a great coach, and from what little interaction i have had with him at a nike camp, he is a class guy as well.

Maybe...but he is in the "first chair" for a top 10 DI team....rather than the "first chair" for a JV H.S. team.

Sorry, that feels pretty harsh.


Pretty sweet experience at St. Anthony's!

I won free Chick-fil-a for a year tonight at our ass beating of A&M.

Had to make a lay up, free throw, three pointer, and half court shot in thirty seconds. Making that half court-er and hearing the arena explode was one of the most surreal moments of my life.

crowds are fun

a guy i work & coach with was a 4 year walk on at wake forest... we had this entire weekend off so he took the trip down for the duke/wake game. he called me last night... he stormed the court.

guy plays with chris paul and josh howard and yet they beat duke and he storms the court like a little school girl. ahhh college hoops.

AWESOME! Congrats...Free food on everyday except Sunday!

I did this at a Timberwolves game once. I made the lay up and free throw and got a sweatshirt, hat and t-shirt and got booed off of the floor! Also very surreal.

That's a great story, Head in a Suitecase.

And zoney, that's unfortunate. Maybe they were saying Boo-urns.

Playing college ball probably would automatically disqualify you from such a contest.

Impy's a hippie pothead They apparently want to sign you up, wait 'til they find out you're no A&M fan

And ooh lookie, a 10th straight win for UConn. Life is good. The way Austrie is going when/if Dyson gets reinstated he'll be coming off the bench.
