    Hahaha, I love The Other Guys! And that’s exactly how this season has felt… like Dirty Mike and the Boys repeatedly had their way with the basketball team in a Prius F-shack.

    That foul that Scott Wood drew was complete garbage. I don’t know about college, but I know the NBA has done away with that call… you aren’t allowed to jump sideways into a player on a jump shot in order to draw a foul, and I wish that change was applied at all levels.

    As angry as the season has made me, we should still honor our seniors for their hard work and dedication to the program. Those guys worked really hard to improve their bodies and their play on the court and should be commended for that… nice tribute Niemo!

      You and me both, Raisin. I’m ready to get out of the Prius and go take a long, hot shower. Imagine if we did accept a bid to play in the CBI or something and we had to drag this out even more. I want to win the ACC, that would be awesome, but at least now I know that when we lose our next game, it’s over. No more tomorrows on this season. That’s refreshing. You said it best — I can’t avoid watching us. Even if I didn’t have this site, I’d watch any game, anywhere, anytime. But it will be nice to move on and focus on the Sabres playoff push and Braves Spring Training baseball.
