Late last night, our beloved RedHawks treated the lowly Bobcats from Ohio U to an early exit from the MAC Tournament. Awesome. Now how could this be? On paper, OU is likely the better team. But they aren't, they are losers...always have been.
Could it have been the leadership of Mike Bramos, the hot shooting of guys who never score (19 points from Winbush and Moosmann!!!), this blog naming yesterday "Charlie Coles Day", or the crappy coaching of Tim O'Shea? I'll take a little bit of each please. Also, I'm pretty sure that Tim Pollitz is friends with Tim Donaghy. Jesus, he missed at least six uncontested lay-ups in the second half.
If fellow blogger and friend of this blog, JBeanie, is a man of his word, he will post a tribute to the victors this morning. It was a gentleman's agreement, I want you to follow through, dammit!!! Once I see that it's up, I'll have the link. UPDATE, he's a man of his word, here's his OU obituary.
And now we get the big dogs...Kent State. Since we already won the game that I really wanted to win (sending those fuckers back to Athens will ALWAYS be the most important thing to me), the rest of the tourney is icing on the cake. Wait, I don't like cake...let me think of a better analogy...it's like a stripper feeding you a steak. Yeah, that's better. Do we have a chance tonight playing a much better team and it being our third game in three days? Probably not, but in Jermaine Henderson I trust.
As Ric Flair once said, "to be the man, you've got to beat the man". We are still the champs of the MAC and if Kent wants that title, they've got to go through us to get it.
It's been a long week...the boss is working me like this is a sweatshop...I'm exhausted. You've probably noticed that the quality of my posts has gone down the shitter. If you don't like it, start your own blog. I may be back tomorrow since I have to come in again...who knows. Have a good weekend and GO REDHAWKS!!!
Got any predictions for hoops this weekend? Drop them in the comments and we can discuss.
