  1. LOL-Would have made either shot? What a great finish to a great game. "Holy crap."
  2. Will they be hanging a "Welcome to Loserville" banner next year? Freakin' 'holes- they can't win one game. One stinking game.
  3. Class of '79, the year of their only Final Four appearance. We beat Iona (what's a Gael?) in a "play in" game, then upset the 'Holes (arguably the best team in the nation that year) by a point. The regional finals were at the Greensboro Coliseum, which was empty because, you know, there were no redneck teams left (just Penn, Rutgers, St.John's and Syracuse - Duke had lost to St.John's the weekend before) and why would we want to see a buncha yankees play? I was photo editor of the school paper that year, and, along with a couple of the paper's sports reporters, drove down for the games. I would look up at the scoreboard every now and then and we'd be up by a few points here and there. It wasn't until the game against St. John's was over that I realized what had been happening. I passed on the chance to go to SLC for the final 2 games (this was before there was a "Final 4", "Elite 8" or "Sweet 16"; there was no shot clock, no TV timeouts, no "from beyond"; the unis didn't look like PJs . I don't think there was even color TV. This was the dark ages, man), thinking 3 reporters were better suited to cover the weekend than 2 and a photog. I was young and foolish back then. I regret that decision to this day
  4. We don't get to that part of the program until at least year 7. There's so much more foundational work that needs to be dealt with first. Like 40 years of Howard Porter. Though the poor guy's been dead for like 10 years now - maybe I need to let him off the hook. Nah, it's 'Nova. Screw them. Go Holes.
  5. You've obviously never met the infamous jamawe, either.;)~
  6. Maybe one day, he'll make it to Warroad. It's on my bucket list.
  7. Would you try that again, Andrew. More slowly, and in English, this time. Fanks.
  8. What instrument do play? BTW the Oklahahahamans are trying to recover from their loss yesterday. They didn't show up to that game either.
  9. I thought you said "in" the pit and was wondering which one you meant.
  10. It was low hanging fruit - too easy to pass up. There's a lot to be said for New Jersey. Aside from a few cockroaches.
  11. Crap, you're good. Or am I THAT transparent? (have we talked about this?) Penn woulda shut down UCLA like nobody's bidness in the championship game. Plus the whole blowing up the Big 5 thing. And the not recruiting kids from the city thing. And Rollie is so...Rollie. I gotta million of 'em.
