Didn't get your daily fill yesterday, thanks to me having the day off work and playing outside almost all day with my daughter...but, I'm back to normal now.
We'll kick off this week with a "better late than never" cheers and jeers.
Cheers to ESPN's coverage of Saturday night's Memphis vs Tennessee basketball game. This game had the feeling of a heavyweight fight and ESPN definitely helped it out with all their promotion, etc.
Jeers to Robert Dosier, from Memphis, for not dunking the ball, and instead missing a 2-footer with under a minute left that would have given Memphis a 3 point lead.
Cheers to (hold on while I vomit) Tennessee, for once again proving that the SEC is dominant in all sports. Even when the league is down, we still have the best team in the country.
Jeers to Memphis for being out-rebounded 50-34 on Saturday night and giving up 19 offensive boards. It's a wonder they didn't get beat by 20 after a performance like that. The Vols outhustled them for every loose ball, and it really mattered at the end of the game.
Cheers to Michael Beasley for his performance last night, even in a loss. 30 points and 15 rebounds against Texas is no small feat, and he single handedly kept them in the game. The rest of his team isn't that great, but he makes Kansas State a threat every time they get on the court.
Jeers to Gottfried's basketball team. These guys are just dumb. That's all there is to it. I don't know if I blame this season more on the coaches or on the players. The kids are just stupid - and that's all there is to it. Auburn has one starter over 6'5" and we came out and shot 5 of our first 6 shots in the game from behind the arc. Just stupid. We had a chance to take control of the game with Hendrix down low, and just didn't do anything about it. Dumb.
Cheers to Coach Saban's press conference regarding the discipline of the football team. Jeremy Elder has been dismissed from the football team officially. He told us exactly what we needed to know about Rashad Johnson (he's seen video footage of the incident), and that he would not be suspended. Kevin Steele has been promoted to assistant head coach and defensive head coach. Kirby Smart has been bumped up to defensive coordinator. New names for same coaches, I guess.
