A little didi on the front page of ESPN

The public fleecing on bonds deal for the basketball stadium is particularly insightful.  It almost as though they were challenging law enforcement to come after them ... a dare of sorts (bust us, bankrupt the city).

Louisville, proud member of the ACC 'elite' - everything wrong with college athletics

We lost to a very athletic UNLV team in their backyard ... and made it competitive without Black, our only 'Big'

UNLV has lost twice, both times in OT, and one loss was to Arizona.  New-style refs seem to hate our style.

*** Who's heard of Jovan Mooring from Hillcrest (IL) HS?  These nonrecruited instate guys always go off on us  :blush1:

I believe the other 2 man-kids are going to be allowed to suit up for UCLA after January 1st ... hope Trump roasts Alford's Bruins on Twitter

That will be yet another error, this time by the administration, which should redshirt them - if not outright disqualify them - for tarnishing the institution

Higher education ... LMFAO

I think Nebraska is the leader for Thamba last I saw, FWIW
Interesting, I haven't followed him. Just saw a retweet yesterday.

The team fought hard and stayed in the game despite the huge foul call difference. Need more bigs
Yep, I just can't state strongly enough how i love the grit, hard work and attitude of this team.  We are going to be so dangerous in a month if LB is okay.  To have a good shot to win that game in the face of that huge foul discrepency speaks volumes to me about these kids. 

On to my not so enthusiastic take on the team - Again, I know I am a broken record, but Finke just has to be better.  No excuses anymore from him, he simply has to be the leader of this team and in the score book.  He has to consistently hit open shots and score 17-25 a game. He has that ability but for whatever reason misses wide open shots against power teams when he would make the same wide open shot against the mid major teams we have played.

That being said, even with our slow and stupid starts I still love watching this team. Holy cow Mark, Monte and Trent are going to be quite possibly the best back court in the country (next year or thereafter) ....and Ayo is going to make the back court even better.   

We are getting an OV from Flo Thamba this coming weekend and he is described as a banger.   We made his final four along with VT, Nebraska and Baylor. I have a feeling that is between us and VT since he is from Virginia.  I hope he is watching us and sees how good we are going to be and how Brad will do everything in his power to get him to the next level.
