Analogous to the league that just might break double digits on NCAA tournament entrants this year, the big water is treacherous and cold. Yet where it is deep, the Golden Eagles are not.
This, of course, is not news. Similarly, we learned little we did not already know about Marquette from its smartly and aggressively played 79-72 victory against No. 15 Villanova at the Bradley Center.But don't let that stop you from writing another 500 words about it, MikeHunt!
I'm sorry, I have more to include. I couldn't let this pass:
Yes, Jerel McNeal, Dominic James and Wesley Matthews were very good in the first conference game of their final season together. And as seniors, they give every impression, from their collective experience and skills and the confidence they ooze, that they are finally prepared to take Marquette reasonably deep into the postseason.
I can't put what I'm about to say any nicer than this: fuck you, you fucking uninformed buttplug. "Finally prepared to take Marquette reasonably deep into the postseason"? Listen, fuckhead -- they've been prepared to do that for three fucking years. But then shit happened:
Year One: Jean Fucking Felix. That's it. Dude has the game of his life -- and the Amigos still damn near pulled it off.
Year Two: We lose our best player right before the tournament, then match up with Izzo in round one, causing Crean to completely lose his shit.
Year Three: Despite a terrible match-up in round two, we're a miracle shot from one of the Lopii away from the Sweet Sixteen.
Don't you ever fucking lay that any of that shit on these three ever again. I don't know if you've realized this watching Bo beat up on double-digit seeds year after year, but it is fucking hard to win in the NCAA tournament. The Amigos have done everything they possibly could to take this team "reasonably deep into the postseason." Fuck, man, 'Rel was willing to play with a broken fucking hand against Michigan State until Crean put his foot down.
I'm sorry for yellin', but this shit drives me nuts. Am I disappointed that we haven't done more in the tourney? Fuck yeah, I am, but I'm not disappointed in Rel, Dom, and Wes -- just their former coach. And to act like the lack of success in the tournament is what defines these three players...it's fucking bullshit, is all.
I'm going to go run around the building for a minute. If I don't come back, I'm definitely NOT firebombing the JS building.
