Good win for PC but teams like Creighton, Butler are pumped up by guys like KMac and now by our own fans. Butler starts a GW transfer, yesterda...

Re: Week #11 - Games of Interest

I find the reactions of Saint Louis fans on their message board not at all interesting and completely predictable. No one knows the facts outside of the case, but the default of fans in these situations tends to be, “of course our boys are innocent, we know bitches lie anyway.” That’s generally not...

Hurley’s the type of guy you love if he’s your coach and hate if he’s not. I completely understand why people don’t like him, he’s really animated, looks pretty goofy on the sideline and complains a lot. I love Hurley but he’s up there with Boeheim in terms of guys who constantly whine about calls.

Solid win overall, great games by Terrell and Stan. Also solid defense from Langevine. Would be nice to see Fatts get his offense going again, he’s now shooting 12.5% from the field in a10 play.
