Big East Tournament First Round Open Thread (Syracuse-Villanova)

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

Sean McDonough, Jay Bilas, and Bill Raftery are on hand for the most important game of the Big East Tournament and I'm going to try and update you as best I can. There will be quotes and comments. Play along if you please....

"You're tough on my arrows"- Raftery
"There aren't that many in the quill these days."- Sean Mc

It's 3-2 early and no one is making any shots 15:40 left. Oh and Villanova is in.....


I'm pretty sure this game is going to finish something like 30-28. Right as I say that Donte Green hits back to back threes and the 'Cuse goes up 15-7 with 12 minutes left.

"What is that a warm front coming in?"- Jay Bilas

Those arrows are crazy. 20-11...9 minutes left. Syracuse is living at the three point line....46% from the field and 60% from the 3-point line. Nova....26% from the field.

26-18 Syracuse, 5 minutes left.

"That's just terrific. Not the circles the offense."- Bill Raftery who is having problems with the arrow and circle technology on replays

"We were going to send you away for tests, you were a bit sluggish earlier in the year."- Bill Raftery to Sean Mc
"Yeah, we were concerned you might get better."- Jay Bilas to Sean Mc

26-18 Syracuse at the under 4 minute timeout. That's barbed goes all the way around...boop boop boop boop.....boop.

"Tonight at 7 eastern time you'll get the A-Team announcers Dan Shulman and Len Elmore."- Sean McDonough
"I detect a bit of jealousy."- Bill Raftery
"No. They are great professionals."- Sean McDonough
"It must be nice to work with a great professional."- Jay Bilas

Uh oh....we've got some dissention in the ranks. Wow Bill Raftery just said someone was "well endowed" and we're at the half! Horrible game.....

28-27 Syracuse.

"It's not a sandwich but it's a Reynolds wrap."- Bill Raftery (Ugh.)

39-36 Syracuse 16 minutes left.

44-41 Nova with 12 minutes left (sorry this game is boring me to tears)

"Terrific use of the derriere."- Bill Raftery

Sorry about the lack of updates but blogger went down for about 20 minutes. Anyway the game is over as Villanova leads by 19 with about 3 minutes left. Bye Bye Syracuse....thanks for playing.

Currently one of my favorite commercials out there, simply because I know someone just like barbed wire guy. Instead of a barbed wire tattoo though, he got a giant cross, that nearly circles his tiny, tiny arm. It's fantastic in the "horrible, horrible, I'm glad I'm not dumb enough to get that tattoo" sort of way.

Did Raftery just say he's incredibly endowed?

I just realized why I hate Raftery. I think I'd actually like him a little more if I could actually understand what the frick he is saying when he gets excited.

Dunno...found her on a betting website. I like the throwback though.

Tom Brennan called Villanova "Vermont" at the beginning of halftime. Don't look over your shoulder, TB. BTW, is that barbed wire guy Frank Grimes from 'The Simpsons'?

Im just gonna stare at the chick with 'cuse jersey for the rest of the day.

I turned it off as soon as Bilas and Raftery were campaigning for eighth and ninth place teams in the Big East to make the NCAA rather than 2nd place teams from mid-major conferences.

How DID Tom Brennan get offered a Year 2 on the family of networks anyway...?
