Fired Bill Carmody: February 2006

Tuesday, February 28, 2006


well, i had the privilege of witnessing the wildcat hoop debacle last saturday in state college. never have i seen a "motion offense" with so little "motion." i don't know what disturbed me more - the fact that Cote was in the middle with 4 other guys around the circle chucking up random threes, or the fact that the coaching staff didn't seem to have a problem with this approach. come on guys, i know we're small and weak and white, but at least TRY to get fouled by going into the lane more than twice a game. PSU was 20-26 from the line. NU was 0-3. we lost by 13. you do the math.

one down

picked up a nice win last night at home against a struggling badger team. UW was a win away from the conference lead, but when they cannot shoot- wow, they end up losing to people like us or north dakota state. the cats looked a little uneasy in the last 2 minutes, so hey coach how about we draw up some new out of bounds plays on the flight to PA today.

the moment of truth

since it's been long enough since my last post for everyone else to lose interest, and since i'll be heading to state college on saturday to witness this train wreck in person, i suppose i should say something. right now the northpusstern wildfags are 12-12 with 4 games left. i'll be optimistic and call 3 of them "winnable." i'm not entirely sure which of the 3 i'm talking about, but when you have 3 home games and a visit to the 8th place team, thats not overly frightening. at the very least you HAVE to win 2 of those games, because then you only have to win one game in the conference tournament to be post-season eligible. so i guess what i'm saying is, don't blow it.

and it will be interesting to see if the student body, which normally is terrified of witnessing live athletic competition in person, can handle the free admission price and show up for the nationally televised wisconsin game tonight. otherwise we'll be subjected to more whining about fan support from the apparent team spokeman, Mr. Tim "I run like I have M.S." Doyle.
