Well, How 'Bout Those Brewers?

Since it's painfully obvious that the basketball season is over - what are your thoughts on the Brewers this year? I'm not too bullish. The pitching was great last year, but I can't get too excited about a Suppan-Gallardo-Parra-Bush-Looper starting rotation. I do expect Prince to have a big year. Please disregard my prediction that Billy would have a big year last year.

I hear Bushy has been throwing the ball well. Maybe Billy Brew will have some improvement on offense since he had the Kirby eye surgery.

Just finished watching MU lose to Nova. Initial thought- what the fuck, McNeal? Seriously. What the fuck. Awful. That performance was embarrassing all over the place. That pointless three point shot right after we took the lead, the decision to shoot with 21 seconds left, and laying down like a broad on defense for that last drive. Disgust is the only way to describe this.

Dude, this is the Brewers post. Please use the Villanova post below for comments about McNeal's horrible shot selections during the final minute.

I don't feel too confident about the brewers either. Gotta love being a Wisconsin sports fan.

I obviously didn't see the game, but judging by the outstanding shooting performance that Wes and Jerel had i'm shocked that it took a buzzer beater to beat us by 1. Jerel's mentality is garbage without James now. He is constantly taking bad shots.....esp. in tight games late in the 2nd half. When we have the lead and the ball with under 1 minute to go, we should win those games. The opposite occurred both against Syracuse and now Villanova. Poor decision making. Did Buzz ever call a timeout this time?

White But Still Hip said...

Of course not, why would he? I'm so glad we rewarded Buzz for doing well during the easy part of our schedule with three stud seniors. I'm not saying it was a definite mistake yet, but the administration cannot be feeling great about the move now.
You're right, 'Rel's game is garbage now. I'm not sure how we're letting him take some of these shots down the stretch. I'm not sure why he thinks he should take them. If you're ever in the mood for disappointment, watch the final 1:30 of that game. Hegarty's is the only cure for what ails me at this point.

Zone Defense is for Pussies said...

what are you talking about rewarding buzz? and why would the amdministration not be feeling well about it now...we lost 5 out of the last 6 games and the 5 loses came to teams in the top 25 without our starting PG. sure rel didn't have a good game but our team faught like hell and should have won. no foul called when Rel was at the hoop on our last possession. looked like a foul to me. and regarding his defense on the very last play we stopped a second to help butler because it sure looked like redding was going to ahve to shoot it there. just got caught watching the guy with the ball with 1.5 seconds left.
