There it is, the uconn propaganda machine at work via the HC. Uconn matches up well with Marquette? Ok, Marquette wins bing, at least they should if their guards play their typical game. Size advantege for uconn? Big deal. Blair is 6, 7 inches shorter than Tabby the Kitty Cat and he completely dominated Tabby last week. But then of course, according to calhoun it's the refs that dominated Tabby, not Blair.
Does anyone seriously think that Marquette is worried about Robinson? Oh yeah, that's right, TONIGHT is Robinson's big breakout, show the rest of the country how great you are night. Adrien, good for a 1/2, 1st or 2nd half but that's all you will get from him. Guards, Austrie, several ill advised 3's, some bad drives to basket and 2 for 11 shooting night is your line score for him. He's terrible. Price, can't carry the team without help, he gets none. See how calhoun's team rallies for him tonight, they will lay down and take a beating, that's how this team will rally for calhoun.
The most important event tonight will be the post game press conference where calhoun will once again, make a complete a** out of himself and blame refs, media, weatehr for uconn's soon to be embarrassing loss.
Brilliant prediction, growup. Marquette wins "bing". Horrible game for Robinson; only 19 points and 10 rebounds. Per the results of this game, may I offer you these words courtesy of your favorite antihero: "My best advice to you is, shut up."

it is most unfortunate that our society has placed a premium on highly compensating people whose greatest contribution to society is the generation of cash.
isn't it about time we rethink who gets highly compensated?
There are many brilliant people out there who devote their lives to expanding knowledge, creating, inventing and generally making the world a better place; who can never, ever even dream of approaching this level of compensation.
Seems to me that something is wrong.
Wall Street types make millions and billions for pushing paper and running companies into the ground, Athletes earn millions for playing childrens games. Entertainers earn millions for playing a role. And all the while, doctors are losing their shirts, great teachers are being laid off and limited, invnetors are being robbed by larger entities.
What kind of culture is it that we have here exactly?
Time to think people. There will never be a better time to make this world a better place then right now.

Dr's are losing their shirts? Since when?
