Basketball Board pissing match observer
- Dec 21, 2011
It's about the style of play and results. If hoops had a bowl system, we'd have been lucky to be selected for one of the bottom bowls in any of the last 5 years based on the entire body of work. For years Millhouse was clamoring to get away from meathead ball. Wouldn't you say the brand of hoops we've been playing for the last 5+ years is closer to meathead than any other style? Do you like being at the mercy of the selection committe every single year? I forgot what it's like to be able to relax on Selection Sunday. Thank god for the recent Final Fours but it really makes people overlook some really serious flaws with how things are trending.
The fact that you're assuming we are on the bubble this year is maddening. We beat Ohio State on the road by 10 who is 8-1 and has beat some really good teams while we are 8 games in.
I'm not in favor of our offense either, but you have an anti-Boeheim agenda at all costs and make things sound worse than they are.
And another thing. We won 30 freaking games in 2013 for the first final four and were a 4 seed. That's not a bubble team. Everyone would take that season every year if we were guaranteed it.
The next team won 28 games and was not a bubble team. We lost early in the tourney, but it was not a bubble team.
So when I come at you because I say you don't use facts, it is because you don't use facts. You exaggerate to make things worse than they are to promote your agenda.
