When will our game time be announced?
Getting ready to head to the Nova game, but from right behind the BU band, our guys played thier heart out and got hammered a lot with no calls, but the refs weren't BE bad at all. When Rosie tried to walk to the locker room and fell down right in front of me, I thought the game was over for us, but the guys kept fighting! When he came back on to the floor the place went nutz! I got no voice left, but off to watch Nova continue the BE winning!
Yeah, f*** that guy, right?! Who does he think he is trying to help people?
Oh Lord, can we not do this here?
what are talking about, dude. helping people? LOL. Shortening the shot clock, widening the lane kills teams like Butler, Belmont, Wofford, UVA and opens the game up for NBA style ball...running, gunning, no defense. Minimal strategy and all athleticism. That's when I start watching golf. Hey, by the way, who's he helped? He ain't helped me. Don't get me going.
Thank you. The ESPN propaganda of trying to make college ball like the horrible NBA is to help the Blue Bloods and 5 star recruits. Bilas and his sheeple hate the Butlers of the world and wish there were a power 5 playoff instead of the 64. College football has some major differences from the NFL and so should college ball. No one here would pay to see more than 3 or 4 NBA teams so why would you want your product to follow that model. Go Dawgs!!!!!
I can't stand the NBA. I can watch the occasional Pacers game, but overall I couldn't care less about the NBA.
Actually, the NBA has more strategy and actual offensive plays now than college basketball. All you see now is ball screen, put your head down and crash into a defender. Not much coaching going on there. A lot of college coaches want to make the players happy by giving them freedom to just make a play. Well, not too many teams have the players to actually do this well.
The line of thinking is both teams shot less than 34% for the game and we were out-rebounded by 13.
I don't care how it happened, and really, neither should anyone else here. Dawgs won. It's March. I gave up my lunch at school to sit in my room and watch on the computer. We're still dancing. On to Notre Dame...
I think most purist would disagree with you. ONLY thing a shortened shot clock will do is what it has done to the NBA.....lead to bad shots.
Uhhhh, I could be wrong but I think that our shooting was pretty crappy in every game in 2010 except for the second half against UTEP.
The only good thing in this thread was Willis' poetic effort. Well done Sir!
I wasn't sure if it was because I was watching the game on my iPhone 5, but I thought this as well. Definitely some bad calls (why does the out of bounds call seem so difficult for them this year?), but it was lightyears beyond what we saw in the Big East. So nice to see.
When do they announce the game times?
