    I feel dirty agreeing with Urban Meyer.
  • Miami at Akron at 8:00 Monday night in the MAC Tournament

    I think all anyone needs to know about this game, if they did or didn't watch it, is at one time, our lineup was Ringo, Sibande, Harouna, McNamara, and Abrams.  I don't think anything else needs to be said.

    Outside of using the old nickname from time to time, Jim Brown was fine as a color analyst. It was the play-by-play guy (Chris Collins??) who was butchering everyone's name last night. 

    I've known Coach Brown for years, too.  Classy guy.  If he used the name Redskins a few times during the broadcast, I'm good with it.  He knows more about basketball that I could ever hope to begin to understand.  Chris Collins?  He's normally right on with names.  But if you haven't seen the Miami roster until the night of the game, then yeah, there could be some mispronunciations.  

    They were also homers the entire game. Nice guy, sure, but maybe just not a good broadcaster. It was brutal to listen to.
    They're the Wright St. radio team, what do you expect?  Bake is a homer and I wouldn't expect anything else.  I thought Coach Brown criticized both teams at points during the game.  But he's going to be for Wright St. at the end.
