I would if he didn’t do it every game. It used to be cute, but now it’s just infuriating. Like I need to read this shit while I’m in the middle of watching us blow a 15-Point lead.

I know the guy seems like a nice guy, it’s why I hold back, often, but it definitely makes posting/reading the game thread nauseating.

These are the games we won in OOC but haven't in conference play. Can't lose a game like this up big most of the game. Huge to give us 2 signature wins and sets up homestand. We are all brothers dying for this team to win...no sense in coming down on anyone for doubting it when things aren't going well. Welcome back to .500!


Ponds got fouled three times on one possession in the second half, while Marquette was making their run, and nothing was called. Of course, being Ponds, he still made a layup on that trip.

That’s funny, didn’t we lose?


I’m a defensive pessimist Guinness. That’s my personality, plan for the worst hope for the best. They really roughed it out tonight.

I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. I just wish you’d wait until it’s actually over to declare the game over.

WTF, how you can possibly say anything negative about the game Simon played tonight?? Best game he has played this year, he didn't disappear down the stretch, he got us to the stretch and then Shamorie took over, not to mention he was shadowing Howard down the stretch. My God our fans are tough to please.

Fourth Quad 1 win!

Bowling Green won again too.


What do you have to say about Simon?

I posted all game about him and in the Simon thread. He was awesome. He’s a stretch 4 in college and when he plays like one we are very tough to beat.

So many great plays tonight but for me the little things that figgy did were the highlight. Guy never takes a mental break. He’s always checked in and making plays.

Mustapha quiet tonight but made some plays when he needed and played in control.

Simon best game of the season, though if he fouled Hauser on last shot I would have lost it.

Clark was a no show tonight. He has to get his fouling under control it ruins his game with so much time on the bench.

Good minutes from Sedee tonight. He has gotten better every game, which is unheard of for a SJU big man.

Williams minutes were decent. Trimble could have gotten a little more burn tonight.

Shamorie is Shamorie. Gonna do some things that royally piss you off, but still put up 30 points. Huge clutch free throws and made some huge shots. Nice bounce back from Duke.

8 league games left including some key marquee games (2 MUBB vs VUBB games, SJUBB vs VUBB, SJUBB vs SHUBB, etc) that will decide this. But Ponds at worst pulled even tonight.

I do think the overall team performance will be taken into account in other words if Marquette stays ahead of SJU in the standings and challenges Villanova all the way to the end that will help Howard. Now if Ponds goes nuts here and SJU say gets to 11 wins then I think unless Howard goes nuts I think Ponds is likely to win it. But SJU needs to go on a nice run, win 6 out of 8 to close season.

It’s a double knit world, baby
And your heart is my goal
I’ll pick the lock
With my pet rock

He means well and the frustration was understandable. I'm sure he wants the team to win just as badly as anyone else. If anyone is being honest, the game was far from "never in doubt" at the end. I know I'll take heat for sticking my neck out also with a negative reputation, but is it really productive eating our own after a huge top 10 win on our way home? Guys we just got 2/3 from this roadtrip. We are back on track now because of it. Let's keep it going and take advantage of home court.
