  1. Their next game is at Seton Hall... I wonder if he’ll go through the handshake line?
  2. Wonder how it feels to be watching his new team get beat by Butler at home.

    The Bills over St. J by 13

    Jacobs seems like a player with one gear right now, and it’s a bit too fast for his skill level and lacks any nuance. When he attacks the bucket you can see his athleticism, but he struggles because he doesn’t know how to slow down for half a step to throw the defender off balance. And then on his passes, he tries going full speed, but doesn’t pass fake or do anything to make the defender uncertain before he throws the ball, leading to easy steals. Great guards are the ones that can change pace and keep defenders guessing. Being able to beat everyone on athleticism alone in high school is probably why Jacobs doesn’t have this yet. The good news is that it is something you can learn.

    GDT Patriot League Rams

    Nothing happened. I’m guessing Rammer saw him go down and then when he seemed to be in pain, said something about maybe his shoulder being hurt and now everyone is freaking out. He landed on his tailbone and stayed in the game. Everyone needs to chill on this until we hear something real.

    I’m guessing he had a bad angle on it then. Definitely landed on his tailbone, no clue how his shoulder would’ve gotten hurt.

    That looked like he landed on his tailbone, not his shoulder

    Silver lining to this game is that we can stop pretending this is an at-large team and get realistic. We’re borderline top-100. We’re better than we have been but still aren’t that great.
  8. Yeah, you can still get Blatz in Wisconsin at least. A friend of my parents requests that we bring back a case whenever we drive up there to visit family. It’s a terrible beer.
  9. Yuengling is definitely trash, it’s just slightly better trash than Bud/Miller/Coors. It’s like lint vs dirty diapers. While I was in grad school on the east coast, you could usually get a pint of any of the four aforementioned beers for $4 on draft at just about every dive bar. In that circumstance, I would choose Yuengling over the others every time. Also, at our grad student union you could get Yuengling on tap for $1. People always thought it was an incredible deal (which it was), and then I would tell them about penny pitchers, at which point they would lose their minds. RIP Humps.

    Gamesmanship By TF + Free Thor

    It was a flagrant foul, the free throw shooter does not have to be the player that got fouled.

    ...Isabell had one turnover

    Inconsistent half. Only issue for us has been turnovers, really. If we keep our heads and play our game we should run away with it in the second half.

    If we aren’t recruiting him, we should be.

    The Bills over UMass by 13

    That’s fair, we do seem to have had more open looks, just still aren’t converting. Part of that might have something to do with the fact that UMass and App State are absolutely horrible on defense, though.
