What does getting "homered" mean?? I can see you are very passionate about ball dribbling. How much of your life do you waste on watching guys bouncing basketballs? I bet you get all worked up and swear at the t.v. and bore your coworkers with big talk about ball dribbling. How sad.
Merry Christmas, troll....

Baskeball games between two good teams often come down to foul shots. I was reading some UCon message boards and guys were complainging about Ucon getting homered by west coast refs. Hello!! UCon had 15 more points from the line than Gonzaga and 39 attempts to 20!
And Gonzaga had several players fouled out in OT. Were those west coast refs??
UConn always attempts more free throws than their opponents. Its not because of the refs, its because they attack and play very physical.

I imagine that it is not too hard to shoot a basket when nobody is blocking you. It must be almost as hard as bouncing the ball. I can see why colleges would offer big scholarships to kids with this great dribbling talent. And I can see why professional ball dribblers deserve millions of dollars each year. I bet ball dribblers will eventually find a cure for cancer and other big deeds. They must be doing something important to earn million dollar salaries and to have people like you loving them so much!! Is there a ball bouncing major in college? I would think so since ball dribblers get so much money in scholarships to get an education.
are you as ugly as you are dumb?

I like "ball dribblers" and am a UConn grad and enjoy there success.

At the same time, I am sick and tired of the criminal element on the team, their utter stupidity bordering on illiteracy for half of them, and their "special treatment."

It's ridiculous. God bless Emeka Okafor and those like him who actually went to class and got a degree.

It's easy to see why criminal activity is being tolerated. These people don't care if these kids are crooks and dopers as long as they bounce that ball. They don't care if these kids are getting to college for free and not bothering to get an education while kids who really want a degree do without, just as long as they can see a ballgame.

College should be for getting an education FIRST. Playing ball should be secondary.

With regard to this string from Jeff Jacob's recent column "Austin Daye had intercepted Price's inbounds pass and thrown it off him as he stood out of bounds..."

If a player is already clearly out of bounds, how can a ball thrown off him and be ruled out of bounds off him?

Funny, I thought college was to prepare people to earn a living, to contribute to society, and to make money. I guess we should eliminate all those drama classes because all those people are flaky and maki millions of dollars and waste their lives away with drugs and illiteracy. I guess we should also eliminate those art classes because they are dumb people too and cant do physics or chemistry. After all....not all artists or drama majors make it to the big leagues, right??

You are an idiot SpecialTreatment.
