U. Dayton BasketballTonight Was For Big Steve

Mr. Vines2 years ago81 min

Sully is coming at you tomorrow morning with the recap, but I couldn’t let this one wait.

How do you honor a fallen teammate? You go out the next season and win the division outright. You cut the nets down in your own house with his number on your chest. Unreal.

Big Steve was there to put those final free throw’s in tonight, believe that.

Here’s to Big Steve. Here’s to the best class we’ve ever had. Here’s to the next few weeks. Let’s fucking go.

    Wish Steve could have been in there tonight to pick up four more fouls against that minotaur with dreads carved from granite. When Mo Allie-Cox has his head in the game I am not sure who can stop him in college basketball. Scary. And Tillman is the second coming of Dennis Rodman. Quite an achievement for this private Catholic school with two out of shape big men, Gumby and two Hardy Boys who cannot bench their weight on the front line to defeat that gang of runaway Rottweilers twice in a month. For Crissake put Trey in the game. At least if we need some fouls to give he won’t get pushed around and will jack somebody. Not sure what to think of Saturday night’s game. Another spooky A10 gym that is historically haunted for them with nothing really to play for other than maybe a higher seed that they might not really want. I am not going to the books for this but I don’t remember them winning as a higher seed since before Lew Alcindor was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. They have made their runs as the lower seed and have not advanced as the higher seed ever if I can remember. I would rather them be a 10,11, 12 seed than 4,5 and 8,9 is a death sentence. 6,7 maybe since we have four 23 year old seniors with heart but I prefer the Cinderella story with the ‘playing for Big Steve slow mo human interest narrative’ before every game. Going to be hard to see this team finally lose in March. Then we can just tip our caps to Kyle Davis and wish Scooch and Charles Cooke the best of times as they move on to 4-6 year careers banging hot European women and reality TV warped farm girls as they shuffle between the D-League and Europe.

      Can’t handle this negativity and you include Cooke and not Pollard? Who are you?

    Great tribute BR. I thought for sure, as did the whole Arena, that the first FT by KD was out. It bounced off the front of that rim and no doubt, Big Steve put a finger on that ball and bounced it back in. Wish he were here.

      Did you copy and paste this from UDPride? Sounds like something they would post and believe happened over there.

        Appreciate the update bro – I’ve never read a single thing on UDPride so I’ll take your word for it.

          I think he was referring to UDFlyerFan07’s comment?

    Putting a Live Mic on boring droll wimp like Will Wade was the worst Live TV production decision since Geraldo opened Al Capone’s vault
