Thanks....We trailed by 8 at approx. the 11 minute mark. Tide turned with solid defense, getting to the hoop and the foul line!!!!!!!!!!
Ugly game........sure...............but wins are wins!!!
Figuring out how to win games is the goal of the OOC schedule.
Liked how Travis is playing with lots of confidence!
Another game.....another win,
You know tundra, maybe you have something here. Upon watching a few highlight shows last night, the term "Penn State is now 7-1" seemed to have a few desk jockeys in amazement.
When you spew your 'cupcakean' words and share your 'cupcakean' thoughts, I chuckle. When I eat cupcakes, I think of you and I chuckle some more.
I like games against tough opponents in the OOC. I feel for the long term it toughens a team up. But it's now looking like Penn State has an opportunity to go 12-1 in the OOC. Will it be a hollow 12-1, probably...but it's 12-1.
Winning does things to people. It makes them believe that they are winners and they become more confident in their own skin. The B1G is going to be brutal regardless of who we play in November/December...so like tundra says, let's just enjoy our cupcakes while we can.
Going to need to work on playing team offense, too.
PSU is ranked 339th out of 351 in assist percentage.
I won't be surprised if this turned into a springboard for the rest of the season.
To be 4-1 at this point, and 2-1 in Charleston, is to me kind of like being even par on the 8th hole of a round where you can't find the fairway. You are really happy to be in that spot, but more than a little terrified about how the rest of the round will go. (BTW, I can barely remember how that feels - had to consult notes from a prior life of mine . . . )
Unlike some fellow long-time sufferers on this board (I go back to the Bach days), I'm again going to advocate for the half-full view. We are 4-1 with the "1" involving a terrific comeback. Sure we don't know how to find the fairway, but maybe, just maybe we can pull out a couple of victories this week (hopefully with some sound execution on defense and in the post). Yes, this might be irrational optimism, but I refuse to have my heart broken in November, that will likely come during the long winter . . .
