Dark days a'comin?

Nope. I think they already left. ESPN.com profiles Tom Crean's efforts to save the Hoosier program today. Let's be clear, the worst is already past. Next season may be a tad rough, but it will be a whole lot better than the dawning realization that the coach everyone was a little scared of just went out and turned your basketball program into a ethical toilet. Some of the hand wringing is a tad overblown. The turnaround time for a major college basketball program is 2 years, three tops. Next year might be rough, but by 2010, the Hoosiers should be well stocked.

My fantasy homepage - in the player news section - has a link that says "Dragon Slayer back in Cincy lineup".

That was intriguing....so I clicked it, only to learn it was talking about Josh Fogg.

Josh Fogg! The Dragon Slayer is Josh Fogg!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

The only team in baseball with a win percentage over .600

The only team to go 100 years without winning a World Series

Yea we don't play with that free yahoo garbage.

The features are all the way worth the 150 bucks on CBS.

Deshawn Zombie said...

No argument there. We used to play ESPN (which still has some good content, but since I'm an Insider subscriber I get it anyway), but the CBS set up is way better.

I'm home watching 1st and Ten, by far the worst show on TV.

Lemme preface that by saying I'm only home because I'm waiting for the painter - "Restrepo" - to come paint the second floor in my multi.

But this is hysterical. Skip Bayless just renamed Manu Ginobli 'Manu Liability'.

What path did this knuckelehead take to ESPN?

Deshawn Zombie said...

Bayless is a hack. Ginobili has been one of the best, and most clutch players in the NBA for several years. He had a couple of tough games against a bad matchup, so what? Was that supposed to funny? Bayless is an artless clown

I only watch ESPNews now because of all the awful "analysts" that fill ESPN and ESPN2. I can't trust ESPN to do anything more than report what happened in the games without screwing it up.

What kind of twisted website is this where an IU basketball post is trumped by baseball comments.

Baseball? The national naptime? The only sport that (pre-Tiger Woods) challenged golf for least athletic participants this side of tiddlywinks?

Deshawn Zombie said...

The kind of site where the authors spend hours covering and writing about the Colts but love baseball exponentially more.

I love the Hoosiers, but baseball rules over all.

Because baseball players take steroids and would beat you up.
