Just threw up in my mouth a little

Recommended Posts

I know it should be water under the bridge and I am the older adult but,  That just kind of topped off the year in college basketball for me. 

 

Just think in America any young girl can not work very hard at her job.  Help that company fall apart, leave to a new job and have the new job change some rules that are set in stone for everybody else.  And then that young girl gets to be in a company that works it way to the pinnacle of the field that it is in. 

 

 Wow. I did throw up in y moutha little.

 

 

After see her post game Friday where she said that when she played UConn after that game she knew she hadn't worked hard enough in the off season.  Yet she came into her Jr. year also not in shape.  Sooo.

 

Oh well.

I just threw up a lot.  Because I'm sick and tired of officials deciding games.  The MSU player got body slammed after the ND turnover with 4 seconds left.  Not a judgment call, and the ref swallowed his/her whistle and cost MSU a natty.  Yeah', they could have made the layup.   But u HAVE to make that call.   I suspect the ref thought there was less time on the clock and didn't want to make the call at half court.     And the announcers didn't have the guts to call out the injustice.  Just a pathetic disgrace once again by the stripes

I thought the MSU guard was mugged at half court.  Shepherd played well and made a key kick out pass for a three that kept ND in the game.  Was pulling for MSU but am glad UConn was sent home without a championship.  No tears for them as they will be back but so should the Irish.

I totally agree. That foul should have been called. Officials blew it and so did the commentators.

You have to admit she was a big factor for them tonight. 

Big?

Couage? Please, she tore a program apart, whined, got fat and blamed others, bailed and got a special ruling she should not have.  Sounds like a silver fork to me.

As far as Ms. Sheppard...she seems wise, as a championship looks good on your resume' -  from a Husker perspective, it hurts that she couldn't get it done here!!!

Not sure she really tried here.  Ran off our best shooter and a coach and then bailed.

She made a huge mistake by committing to the program at such a young age.  She didn't want to be here and it really showed, especially her final year at NU.  The program is better off without her - it's Romeo that we really missed.

It's amazing how mind over matter so frequently is a true statement.

What do you think of the statement by Muffet McGraw that she thanks Nebraska every day for their help in getting a waiver from the NCAA so that Shepard could play this year.

If Nebraska helped ND get the waiver, I believe it was because Neb thought it would be best for both sides (Nebraska and JS) to part ways. Shepard did not seem happy or fully committed to playing her best ball at Nebraska. It looks like she may have found that at ND. From the Nebraska side, I don't think we would have saw the improvements we did this year if she were still on the team.  Team chemistry seemed much better this year. The existing players had to step up and take over more scoring and rebounding roles. We were also able to add transfer Kate Cain to the roster. If we had a starting center on the roster, I don't know if Kate chooses Nebraska.

I agree.  I suspect it may have been a mutual parting between JS and NU and NU helped her out with the waiver.  Now ND owes us one!

I also think she was spoiled a bit and needed to do some growing up which had to happen if she was going to play at ND.  It obviously did happen.  And yes ND owes coach Williams a big one.
