Pac 12 nightmare weekend

Postby muskieman » Fri Nov 24, 2017 12:55 am

Arizona is in jeopardy of going 0-for-Atlantis (2 straight losses)as Ben Emelogu drops 20 and SMU wins 66-60. Arizona v Purdue will play the last-place game at the Battle 4 Atlantis . Oregon and Stanford fall in the PK80 opening round. Cal got embarrassed by D-II Chaminade. Only ASU get to a championship game against X. How many of you had Arizona v Purdue as the last-place game at the Battle 4 Atlantis?
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Unfortunately, you can now add the BE to the "Nightmare Weekend" thread. Providence, SH, Creighton, & X all lost in games they were favored in. Marq & Butler were beaten soundly by WSU & Texas respectively (expected), and Depaul lost by 20 to MSU, whose best player was injured. Nova is still alive but hasn't played anyone very good yet. Worst of all, X's odds to win were the greatest but lost by the greatest margin. I may have to let Coach use my Groucho Marx disguise for the next few days.

and the bad dream continues for Sean as Zona goes 0-3 and get beat by 25. I am sure he will right the ship but it was taking on water which mean Anti-homer will be all over him on the Zona boards

Maybe ASU and AU are mixed up because the team we lost to looks like they should be #2.

Nah,

I don’t troll other team’s boards. I’m sure you have AZ’s bookmarked, (now Indiana’s as well), though I’m sure either is only accessed when they lose. I’m a fan of AZ, b/c the best coach in the history of X coaches there. The guy who took over an empty cupboard when Thad bolted, and simply won more games each and every year, and also advanced to the Elite 8 in his 4th year with A-10 caliber recruits. He did, however, have the audacity of going to a program that paid him probably 3 times what X did, and also was joining a conference that would allow him to recruit the kinds of players CM has been recruiting since joining the elite BE (next year’s class notwithstanding, which would be poor for an A-10 team as of now), and increase his probability of one day reaching the NC.

AZ had 3 coaches in 3 years when he went to AZ, and SM did one of the best recruiting jobs ever, allowing him to reach his 1st of the 3 or 4 E-8s he has achieved since going there (funny, I don’t recall a thread started by you chronicling this). I know you’re salty b/c CM, the guy who would be coaching CA if not for his wife’s veto, and whom I’d STILL be rooting for as a true X FAN even if he did leave, has only reached the E-8 once despite the advantages of being in a premier conference, and having the cupboards being left full enough for 5 houses courtesy of one Sean Miller. Even his peers felt compelled to comment about it (see Crean, Tom).

Like a lot of posters have opined in the past, your obsession with wanting AZ to fail is bizarre. Now Indiana is added to the list. Your gleeful post after AM’s loss is evidence of this. Why would anyone care how IN did? I don’t recall a bunch, or one for that matter, of threads marveling at the job AM did taking Dayton to the E-8. Surely, X posters would be more interested in Dayton than IU no? I suspect your disdain for AZ is only equaled by UC and Dayton, and now IU, b/c SM’s younger brother did one of the best five coaching jobs probably in the last decade at his previous school, relative to how Dayton performed prior to his arrival. It’s probably why he was voted considerably higher than ”other coaches” in a poll taken a couple of years ago.

Mman, I’m going to let you borrow my Goodwill Hunting dvd again, so you can watch the scene over and over where Matt Damon tells that guy to “Not be unoriginal.” When I googled it on YouTube, a picture of you appeared. You’re as original as a Milli Vanilli song. Unlike you, as much as I do wish success for AZ, since the best coach X ever had coaches there, it doesn’t ruin my week, weekend, day hour, or minute if they lose. You, on the other hand, would need 5 Ambien a night for 6 mos if AZ ever won the NC. When X loses, I’m ashamed to say it does sour me for a couple of hours. AZ woes don't affect me at all. However, two truths we know from you is: a loss can never be attributed to CM, and the refs ALWAYS conspire against my beloved Muskies.

Again, it's curious that we did not see a bunch of threads, or ANY to my knowledge, of anything positive about AZ during those E-8 runs, particularly his 1st one, when he accelerated the rebuilding job by about 3 years. Mman, life’s too short to derive such great pleasure over someone else’s misery, especially when that someone did the best 5 year coaching job for the team you supposedly love. Approx. 93% of my posts are positive, and 7% are constructively not positive. Do you think CM is 100% positive when talking to his players in private, or public for that matter? Please don’t inundate my inbox with apologies which usually occurs after I have to chastise you, something which gives me no pleasure. I also hope this doesn’t make out next Moderator’s meeting at Chili’s uncomfortable next month.

GO X, and to a much lesser extent, go Wildcats and Winthrop!

AH OUT!

I see you are in verbose mode (To borrow a phrase) Shame I don't have time to read it because I bet I would laugh a lot but I get it your sensibility was bruised. With your bipolar "I like Sean/Sean messed up" disorder it is tough when someone says anything about the coach you love/hate
