A Tad Bit Nervous

I have to admit, I'm starting to get a bit nervous about this Marquette team. We don't have a road win against a Top 50 team and our defense continues to be a joke (SJU shot 50% from 3 on Saturday). Seton Hall will give us a good game tomorrow, especially since Hazell can light it up. Everything on Saturday night was blah, from the defense, to the crowd to the team's energy level. I hope it's just a lull and I'm being hyper-sensitive, but these last 6 games will be a bear. The G'town game is looming very large. We need to clamp down on Summers and get out of there with a win. Otherwise, we are looking at 12-6.
BTW - Lunardi has us as a #4 in Portland against UNI. UCLA looms in the second round. Ick!

i think you are beign hyper-sensitive. saturday was a boring ass game in fact much of the game was a blur. i credit that too playing an inferior opponent. I think we'll be fine with Hall Tuesday and we'll win Saturday and steal 2 games over the last 4 to end at 14-4. 3 seed in midwest playing either in Minneapolis or Dayton so I can go.

Wait -- so you're allowed to point these things out after the game, but when I send you a text that says: "Why do we press when our bench only goes 1 deep?", you tell me to quit griping and enjoy the ride?

(To be fair, I also referred to our effort on Saturday as an "abortion." I wasn't in a very good mood.)

I've been waiting for this comment Rubie.

Yes I am allowed, because a day has passed for more reflection, I'm not drunk at the moment and I didn't send 5 alarmist text after a bad 4 minute stretch. Our uninspired play over the last 160 minutes of action has me concerned.

Also - just to confirm it for everyone else - Art's still sucks. Really bad.

Rubie Q said...

So ... my initial reaction, which was chalked up to me being a drunk alarmist, has now been confirmed after sober reflection?

You're the boss, Tony Danza.

I think a post titled "A Tad Bit Nervous" hardly confirms your drunk alarmist text messages.

Eat a dick Katherine Helmond. (that's Mona for all you non-WTB fans)

Rubie Q said...

I don't care what the post was titled -- look what you actually wrote. Those were exactly my complaints (though stated in less-panicky fashion).

Devil's Threesome said...

Which is exactly my point. We have the same concerns, though I'm less concerned.

Rubie Q said...

Fair enough. I'm very, very concerned, and I think with good reason.

Hey chicken little's......chill out! We won by double digits and even O''''''''''''tule got some first half minutes along with the rest of our bench in the second half. If we are playing as uninspired as some of us think, Seton Hall could very well beat us. IMO, they are a bit underrated so it's definitely an upset alert. However, I'm going with a 13 point victory for MU.

In other news.....Pitt was ridiculous last night! Pretty much dominated at UConn and look like legit national title contenders. They are going to destroy us in 2 weeks.
