I didn’t get to catch much of the game last night due to my volleyball game, but from what I little I saw, WOW. I got to catch the first 5 minutes when we were down 14-6. I was happy to stop watching to go play volleyball. But, in volleyball, we probably looked as bad as the basketball team did. We were sloppy. We got killed by a team of 5. We couldn’t shut their biggest guy down. They dominated us in the front row. We were a full team of 6 for the first time playing together, so I’m betting that we will get better as the season goes on. So, unlike the Boiler basketball team, we didn’t make a comeback. We had a team building event at Lucky’s after the game where we discussed our strategy, game play, blocking attacks… nah, we just drank and make fun of the “strippers”.
Here’s a picture of part of last year’s team at our beloved Lucky’s. Kristin is the one that ditched us this year… I think she’ll miss porno bingo the most.
Yeah!!!!! We did it!!!! In my opinion, the game was boring. JJ had some good dunks, but it was basically a fundamentally played basketball game. I think the most exciting part was at half time watching 3 college kids try to shove down a Qdoba burrito the size of a small farm animal in less than 3 minutes and not puke.
Keep it up Boilers!
In the words of Jessi Weaver…. “Seriously?” This loss hurt. It might hurt as much as the home loss to Illinois last week. Having Hummel and Kramer out certainly did us in, but we are a better team than what we have been showing this Big 10 season. I give PSU props for keeping us scoreless for the first 5 minutes of the game. We are starting out 0-2… ouch! Of course I want my mighty Boilers to win the Big 10, but most importantly we need to figure this out before March Madness. I don’t take my ass up to Purdue every week to watch a team that’s gonna be out in the first round…. come on Boilers… make me proud. (And learn to rebound please.)
The tube socks are coming back people!
