Hahaha somebody had to do it. Nicely done. By the way, my whio.com audio isn't working yet.

Secaur said...

I'm listening to the UD game online and watching the xavier game on TV. I'm just asking for punishment tonight.

Uncreative Commuter said...

I just got home and my audio works.

And UD leads?!

Uncreative Commuter said...

Who really listens to AM talk radio? Seriously? Other than my grandma?

Uncreative Commuter said...

I barely got to sit down before a Jacksonville Jet reference.

Secaur said...

My audio kicked on when it was 2-2, so I didn't miss very much. I work in AM talk radio, so I hope at least some people listen to it so I can stay employed.

As for the game, do you ever notice how much better we are when we push the ball and play more of an up-tempo game? It seems like when we're forced to run the half-court offense, we go through prolonged stretches without scoring.

Uncreative Commuter said...

I think you're right about the up-tempo pace. Sometimes I wonder if the team is slighty overcoached like that.

Uncreative Commuter said...

I just want this team to get something going. Get into the NIT at least. I'm sick of no postseason berths.

Uncreative Commuter said...

I can't believe UD leads by 17...on the road.

Secaur said...

I think overcoached is very good word choice. Also, I don't mean to jinx anything but UD is up 50-34. I can't wait to see this running diary.

Uncreative Commuter said...

It would be hard to beat the original FN diary though. Stonemill knows what I'm talking about.

Uncreative Commuter said...

I'm close to the Dayton area, and I wish I could afford to go to the final home game this weekend.

Secaur said...

Is that the running diary of the midseason scrimmage game?

Secaur said...

London Warren just dunked on somebody, and Larry Hansgen went absolutely bonkers. Unbelievable.

Uncreative Commuter said...

I think Larry jumped out his his chair on that dunk.

Uncreative Commuter said...

I was waiting for "The Jacksonville Jet soared on that one!"

Uncreative Commuter said...

I've been to Troy, and the downtown is nice. Beautiful might be stretching it a little. I applied for a job there. Didn't get it though.

Secaur said...

I'm surprised Troy even has a downtown. Hey, who is this team masquerading as the Dayton Flyers ... on the road?

Uncreative Commuter said...

Are they wearing the white jerseys? And why do I feel like I'm going to hear BG yelling "high hands!" in my sleep tonight?

Secaur said...

Hell, if it'll make opposing teams shoot 5-20 from three, I'll yell "high hands." I just didn't know that's all it took.

Uncreative Commuter said...

For a guy as short as BG is, "high hands" might get to the players' eye level.

Uncreative Commuter said...

And the next time I go to a UD game and they struggle, I'm yelling "high hands!"

Secaur said...

So let's see... London Warren, who never shoots, has a dunk and a made three. Marcus Johnson, who can't shoot when he's set, is making off-balance three-pointers, Plummer has 14 points and Little has a career-high 12 boards. See, that's all it takes to win a road game.

Secaur said...

62-52. Uh oh, 10-point game. This one's far from over fellas...

Uncreative Commuter said...

Don't screw this up...

Secaur said...

This is not happening...

Charles Little just attempted three-pointers on consecutive possessions. Charles fucking Little. Temple at the line with a chance to cut it to six.

Uncreative Commuter said...

I reiterate: Don't screw it up...

Uncreative Commuter said...

That rebound was huge.

Secaur said...

Oh sweet sweet road victory.

Uncreative Commuter said...

Well, I wasn't going to celebrate a UD win with the purchase of a car, but Larry convinced me.

Oh, and it wouldn't be a UD game without Larry warning listeners about a weather warning before the final horn.

Uncreative Commuter said...

Horray, second road victory! Horray!

Uncreative Commuter said...

Let's get to 20 wins! Then we can get an NIT bid! Horray! And then I can post an NIT bracket on the blog! Horray!

Secaur said...

How about my prediction within one point of the exact final score? (Forget the fact that I had the winning team wrong.)

Uncreative Commuter said...

That's eerie. Kind of. I guess.

Hey, from now on, all of my predictions will have the opposing team winning by a large margin.
