|Right now IU, Mich, Mich St, Wis & Ohio State are holding the same bottle!|
Babe Ruth was fired up when he said, “The way a team plays as a WHOLE determines it’s success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.” Mr. Willie down at the car wash would always say, “There are three types of workers: those who get things done, those who watch things get done, and those who wonder how so much got done.”
Well, that was the Indiana Hoosiers on Tuesday night playing for all of the marbles in the Big Ten only to come up short 67-58 against Ohio State. A win on senior night would have given the Hoosiers its first outright Big Ten championship since 1993. Now they’ve got at least a share of the joint with 4 other duns. That’s like 5 cats splitting a 6-pack of some old Schlitz Malt Liquor in the vacant lot behind the barber shop and everybody taking a squig off of the remaining can! Or when cats used to buy that Mad Dog 20/20 to "act" like they were drinking before the house party! So they could walk around faking like they're drunk saying, "Man I'm tore up from the floor up!" Y'all know boyz used to do that! Stop me when I start lyin'!
Right now half of the teams in the Big Ten has its hands on the title with Indiana controlling its own destiny. If they win in Ann Arbor on Sunday they get the brew. If they lose, they’ve gotta spit the joint with Ohio State, Michigan State, Wisconsin and Michigan. That’s like having to split Big Momma’s last piece of sweet potato pie with 4 other cats at 3am after you’ve been out partying all night. Dull!!!
How do the Hoosiers lose such a big game at the crib? Because boyz are sitting around watching other cats get it in! No bench! Ohio State got 20 points off of their bench whereas the Hoosiers got 7 freaking points out of 5 whole people. Sheehey played 22 minutes and came out of the joint with 2 measly points! Cody Zeller and Christian Watford put in solid work while Olidipo was held to a mere 7 points. OK, so the freaking guy is human! But did you see him playing defense all night bruh? The cat’s a beast!
What scares me about this Indiana team is that they live by the three and in a one and done scenario in the NCAA tournament that could be a back breaker especially if the joint isn’t falling. You already know that their bench is window dressing that just graduated from the Juwan Howard School of Sitting and Looking Good. Outside of Sheehey, the rest of those duns are eating popcorn and farting. You’ll get nothing from them and that’s a problem down the stretch playboy!
One thing I can say is that the excitement is starting to build for March Madness because there isn’t one dominant team in college basketball this year and it’s a toss-up as to who can win it all. So all I can say is find a good recliner and hopefully you won't have to split your brew with 4 other duns like these dull cats in the Big Ten are about to do!
Holla At Ya Boy!
