I'm better than you. And I know it.

I don’t know what to say, really. Five days til the biggest battle of our basketball lives all comes down to this. Now either we heal as a team or we’re gonna crumble, shot by shot, pass by pass, ’til we’re finished. We’re in hell right now, gentlemen, believe me. And, we can stay here — get the shit kicked out of us like we did against Davidson– or we can fight our way back...

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]With the Advocare Invitiational pending, and the season now in full bloom, it seemed like a good time to start bothering fans of our opponents with needless questions. Iowa if chock-full of good-hearted God-fearing folk that are too kind to say no. Ross, from the SB Nation (IT’S ON US!!!!) blog Black Heart Gold Pants, is such a fellow. He was gracious enough to answer a few questions about this year’s Hawkeye team — giving...

Who are you carrying all those bricks for anyway? Blackburn? Is that it? Blackburn??? Well, I tell ya, let me give you a little inside information about Blackburn. Blackburn likes to watch. He’s a prankster. Think about it. He gives commenters instincts. He gives you this extraordinary gift and then what does he do? I swear, for his own amusement, his own private cosmic gag reel, he sets the rules in opposition. It’s the goof...

[title type=”special-h3-left” color=””]The Sale’s Pitch, the Appeal, and the Nutmeg State[/title] Tony Stanley was a highly sought after recruit from the Arlington, Virginia area. In his early years, he honed his skills growing up in Southwest Philadelphia before moving to Virginia to attend high school.  While at Washington & Lee High School, Tony began receiving interest from several big schools across the country. By the time his senior year started, Tony held offers from Maryland, Temple,...

Hello, little reader. Boy, I sure heard a bunch about you. See, I was a good friend of your favorite Dayton blogger. We were in that Founders pit of hell together over five years. Hopefully, you’ll never have to experience this yourself, but when two men are in a situation like me and your blogger were, for as long as we were, you take on certain responsibilities of the other. If it had been me...

Gobble gobble bitches! Happy Thanksgiving, the best holiday of the year. Food, football, and fun. Christmas is overrated and too corporate. St Patrick’s Day is amateur hour. Martin Luther King Day always gets awkward. Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday.  You get to eat early (more on that later), watch football (again more later), and then eat leftovers (MORE ON THAT LATER!!!). To celebrate this holiday, Matt and I bring you a special T-giving Five for...

Winter is coming. But before winter is Thanksgiving. And before Thanksgiving is the annual Maui Invitational. Morgan Miller tanning her rocking body on the beaches of Hawaii? Yes please? Our undefeated Flyers go into this tournament with Uncle Momentum on their side after beating the Rambling Wreck from Georgia Tech. First up for our Flyers? The original Cinderellas, the Gonzaga Bulldogs. To help us scout the Zags, Peter Woodburn of the Sportsnation blog The Slipper...

Another year, another season of Don and Matt (and guests!!!) boring the shit out of you. Not sure if anyone listened to the podcast we did last week (probably not since it sucked and was buried on the site), but we are planning on writing a Five for Flying every other week and doing a podcast every other week. This, of course, is wishful thinking, as we will probably get bored, run out of topics, get...

I got an email this morning from Blackburn saying I need to write a recap of Saturday’s free throw shooting contest against Findlay or he will be finding my replacement. As tempting as that sounds, I actually enjoy writing for this site so I decided to humor him with a “recap.” For starters, many of you might be asking why I was even at that game on Saturday. Well, Mrs. Donoher had a baby shower...

Hey douchebag readers! Welcome back! The season is right around the corner and I know all of you are probably getting excited to read about the St Franceseseseseses of the world. While that is going to be fun for us, unfortunately it is hard to keep up with the site on a daily basis. That is where are looking for help from you all. This season, we are looking to do a segment every Monday...

Well kids, it has been a fun summer off for Don and I. I caught up on some reading, played some golf, had my best fantasy baseball season ever and got the pleasure of being at an airport when a plane crashed on the runway. Don spent his summer getting into the routine of his hormone replacement therapy. So, a lot of fun was had by all. We decided to bring you ten minutes of...

Hey losers, it’s that time of year again when the degenerates go down to the dump that is Daytona Beach, Florida. If you remember last year, we sent our buddies from Man League Universal to fill us in on all the fun activities. Since it was one of our most read pieces of the year, we figured we would do it again. Will we pay you anything? Probably, this is America — if it don’t...
