Game time notes

-Nice work on the promo by John Saunders, called Minnesota Michigan for the game in Minny tomorrow night on ESPN. Time to check the insulin level Mr. Saunders.
-Georgetown vs. Syracuse isn’t one of the first rivalries I think of in College basketball, but it should be.
-Can’t understand why Notre Dame only plays the slow down game with Pitt, if it beats the best shouldn’t it at least beat a few others? Louisville has controlled the tempo this entire game, credit Notre Dame to be here at the end.
-Syracuse has lost it’s confidence shooting the game as the game has winded down, makes it easier to decide what game to watch live down the stretch.
-Game after Joseph’s miss on the three. Big win for the Hoyas, tough loss for the Orange as Boeheim will have to wait for another day to get to 850 wins.
-Certainly feels like it’s already over in South Bend after the Irish score the first five points after a minute of play.
-Curly’s Golden Eagles look as though they are going to stave off a potential crippling loss at South Florida. Then again…
-Oh yeah, it’s USF with their 18th and 19th turnovers on the night, seriously Marquette, make a god damn free throw, I want to watch UNC vs. Duke!
-Good thing ESPN is giving us the double box with Oklahoma and Texas, because there is a ton of doubt out there about how that game will end.
-The color guy just said USF’s last look for a three was a good one even though the Bull player had a guy in his shorts.
-Eight straight misses for Marquette at the end of this game at the free throw line. This team should be feared by no one, if it actually gets in come March. They barely hang on after the guy accidentally hits the back end of a 1 and 1 to not allow a chance at the tying put back.
-Also, someone tell Louisville you have to play that final five minutes with all the intensity as the rest of the game, if not more so. I can’t stand Notre Dame!
-Florida showing no signs of a letdown, which is very un-Florida like compared to the last couple of years.
-Great fast paced start to the Duke vs. UNC game, other than Dick Vitale. Another post coming later.

hansborough(s)?Tyler Hansbrough

Just look at these guys! It’s like someone splashed water on Hanbrough in the off season and these two slack-jawed yokels were spawned (also, wtf team are those jerseys for? Double Pump vs Pump n Run?). They kind of reminds me of the twins in the 2nd Matrix, if the Matrix twins were rednecks. I’m sure that CBS is involved in this conspiracy at some level – hopefully they’ll air some sort of Jim Nantz narrated montage of how they came to be. After years off blank faced Psycho T taking over the airwaves in March, I was really looking forward to not being forced to sit through an interview (or many) featuring his slow, agonizingly monotone retelling of how he got his nickname. “Ma frends called me Psa-coh T cuz I’m all crazy and intanse. Psa-coh T.” Now I’ll probably have to sit through TWO of these mouthbreathers babbling on about what it’s like to be twin brothers playing on the same college basketball team.


Who knows, maybe they’ll fail out of UNC by the end of the year. Although I will have to say that I haven’t seen them give any kind of interview yet. They probably have British accents and will brush off basketball questions to explain their economic theories of how to get the GDP growing again as they put glasses on and light their pipes. Matrix TwinsUntil then I can make fun of them, since there’s NO WAY I can give any actual analysis of how good any college basketball team is at this point in the season.
