    For the TL/DR crowd, what was the deal?

     

    Apparently while he was working in the athletic department (but before he became AD) he did not take a sexual harassment claim by a cheerleader (I think) seriously enough and so she is suing the AD or University or something.

     

    Not sure, but it sounds like a messy deal, as these things all tend to be.

    Actually it was Johnny Orr who said it while dissing the Nebraska crowd.   The Dead Dog Alley marketing campaign might have been Nee's idea, but when Danny explained it, it really didn't make a lot of sense.  (Why should we embrace an insult someone else hurled at us?)  The t-shirt came with the student ticket and it was just for one year - 1990 - the year Beau Reid was injured and they stunk it up, going 10-18.  The next year when they went 26-8 the whole Dead Dog Alley thing was completely forgotten.

     

    I thought at the time it was one of the dumbest marketing campaigns I'd ever heard of, and I still do.  The t-shirt wasn't bad though.

     

     

     

     

    I stand corrected!  Could have sworn it was Norm, but whatever.  It was a pretty dumb marketing campaign.

    Isn't Pitts BB arena named after our mutual ex?

     

    Nope.  It's a coincidence.  It's not even spelled the same way.

     

    From Wikipedia:

     

    The Petersen Events Center (more commonly known as "The Pete") is a 12,508-seat multi-purpose arena on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh in the Oakland neighborhood. The arena is named for philanthropists John Petersen and his wife Gertrude, who donated $10 million for its construction.  John Petersen, a Pitt alumnus, is a native of nearby Erie and is the retired President and CEO of Erie Insurance Group. The Petersen Events Center was winner of the 2003 Innovative Architecture & Design Honor Award from Recreation Management magazine.

    Everything mentioned is critical...no doubt in my mind.  Two other intangibles bubble up to the top for me:

    1)  Learning how to win.  That includes general decision making; knowing how to use the team throttle; and understanding game situations.

    2)  I think it was Johnnie Orr who mentioned a "junk yard dog" when mentioning the Huskers many a year ago.  We need to develop that junk yard dog mentality.  Protect and fight with every bit of energy...being good is not good enough.  Being good often gets in the way of being great.  It is a critical mindset.

     

    It was Norm Stewart, and he wasn't being complimentary.  He referred to the fans at BDSC as a bunch of "Dead Dogs", meaning it wasn't a very intimidating place for them to play.

     

    For a year or two, then, the student section was called Dead Dog Alley (that was probably coach Nee's idea).  We had t-shirts made up and everything.  I'm pretty sure I had one of those t-shirts.

  5. Woof!

  6.  

    I was sitting in my living room, alone, watching the end of this game intently (I had become somewhat emotionally invested in UCLA and their cinderella run to the final four this year) and let out a pretty loud shout when Suggs hit that shot.  I may have disturbed people.

     

    That type of emotion and release would NEVER happen with an Elam ending.  It would end the buzzer-beater forever and I, for one, think that is a horrible, HORRIBLE idea.  True buzzer beaters (and they are much more frequent than one might think) are the essence of college hoops.  Elam endings are the most boring endings one could possibly imagine, and I've seen a fair share of them.  It's bad enough that they use them in TBT.  Leave them there or let them die please.
