Believe you meant ‘never been there’.

The uneducated don’t realize Patrick is very bright and I hope he succeeds.

Hadn't seen this posted elsewhere, but it's been a popular view this week:

Ewing won't stand for poor shot selection, something Mullin apparently hasn't managed to communicate in 3 years. I've watched the Hoyas a few times this year, and they're a well-coached team. Govan and Derrickson are really good, their guards aren't. We're not really good at pressure, but it's the proven formula for beating them.

LOL the comment at the end of the deadspin article:

"At least this kid practices his lay-ups, Patrick. If you think I’m not still bitter about ‘95 you are very sadly mistaken."

Recall in game 7 of NBA playoffs 23 years ago, Patrick missed a layup in the last second to lose the game.

Does someone have the transcript of Tim Miles' timeout huddle talk, when he said something like 'it's cool to take bad shots from time to time...'?

CU leads 45-43 with about 11 minutes left, Miles tells his team:
"Ya know, we gotta take really clean shots. Like, I don't like, it's OK to take a bad shot here and there, but we can't, we gotta make up for it, right?"

That moment from Miles will live in infamy.

As for the game Saturday, I really don't know what to expect. I feel like we should win this game by double digits but we have never won there and it'll probably be a dead atmosphere. If this team had trouble getting up for a home game against St. John's with a relatively full arena, I fear how difficult it'll be for them to be ready for Georgetown, where there will probably be anywhere from 3-5k fans in the arena.

So with that said;
