Nothing But Net: “No Rabbit Ears, Russ!”


State of shock and elation. This year’s team is close. It shows. They are maddening, and they have tremendous “heart,” as Peyton Siva stated recently. Russdiculous.

Eric Crawford, the über talented Courier-Journal sports reporter said in today’s column: “Chane Behanan, in the second half against both Michigan State and Florida, was the best post player on the court. His willingness to take the big shot, and ability to get the big rebound, bodes very well.

Both of U of L’s national titles were won with freshmen playing key roles inside. Rodney McCray in 1980, and Pervis Ellison in 1986.”

Mr. Behanan was West Regional MVP.

Also, a fun quote from Coach Rick Pitino involving our fave prognosticator, CBSSports Seth Davis:

Again, Mr. Crawford from the Courier:  “Here’s a great thing Pitino said about predictions and national media types, and it involved Seth Davis of CBS:

“I was walking out and my wife said to me, isn’t Seth Davis a friend of yours?  I said, he’s a good friend of mine, I take him golfing.  Someone said he tweeted I guarantee you that Florida will win.  I said, honey, that is the greatest news, outside of Digger, that’s the greatest thing that can happen to us.  He’s never right. He’s the guy that goes to a racetrack for a week and goes 0 for 45.  It’s awesome.  I didn’t think we had a shot until that happened when I was walking out the door.”

We’ll have a new episode tomorrow, but for now, enjoy.
