Foiled again by stupid Wisconsin. A team that plays ugly, has a terrible offense, so they just foul with reckless abandon and eventually the refs just stop calling them. Then they get catch up fouls in their favor and make free throws and never have to score a damn field goal.
Anyway, Justin my little sideline analyst, said to me after the game was over, “Wisconsin’s a bery tough team to get through.”
It was the perfect thing to say to me. So true and so sweet.
And I realized that person was sitting right next to me. Justin. He’s five. He also picked Morehead State over Louisville. I think he’s in the lead in the little household pool we have going here.
Anyway, hats off to Jacob Pullen, Frank Martin, and Kansas State for a great season. I hope they can keep building their program.
