I now dont even bother going to the PS basketball blog to read post-game reactions from the game. I am so sick of SU fans (including the coach) talk so much trash on this team. Yes we haven't been blowing teams out...but ya know what? WE ARE 8-0. We have played 2 teams from the ACC and 1 team from the Big 10...they are towards the bottom of their conferences but regardless they are decent D1 talent. ...and we've won! We are starting a freshman center and his backup is a freshman. We have 3 new starters in our starting 5 and a ton of freshman coming off the bench. Lay off these kids! If them winning isn't good enough for everyone then what is? A win is a win is a win, and everyone knows we have a crapload of talent on this team its just a matter of when it will finally mesh.
I am sick of the "we are going to get destroyed by Mich St" comments..Im sick of getting text messages and emails from friends saying how bad we look. Im sick of the Post Standard's blog that after victories all I hear is how bad we are. This is our team and maybe we aren't as good as we've been in the past, but that doesnt mean we are horrible. We are 8-0 and have found ways to win in close games...I think this SU fanbase should be looking at the glass half full instead of always half empty this season in basketball. Maybe if we rally around this team they will get some confidence and make some shots and surprise people at MSG this week.
TNIAAM for life.
