    Default Holy #### Balls, the MBB is about as encouraging as a walking through a cemetery

    Good God! What the #### is wrong with everyone.

    Our team just won 30 games, again. We have at least one first team All American. We beat Duke in the regular season and the NCAA committee appropriately awarded them a #1 seed.

    All I see though is a bunch of #####ing, moaning and gnashing of teeth about how this that or the other team is going to steal our lunch and punch us in the nuts!

    Should we set up a crisis hotline?

    Okay, I am bumping this thread for the posters on the MBB who have Holy Hairy Balls!

    and are having problems shaving those hairy balls.

    Seriously, I don't think there is a bottom of the well of the sense of entitlement in the MBB crowd. It boggles my ####ing mind what people will find to complain about. Good God!

    I just went through a thread full of people #####ing about FSU. I can't go any further.

    Halftime. We're up. And I still feel like sh*t. If I've watched soooo many sporting events, why am I so bad at it?

    My Apple Watch keeps warning me that there's something wrong.

    This is from the Duke game at the start of the year. Got the same message against Baylor... expecting it again today lol.

    lol

    I got the watch so I could start and pause my podcasts or music without digging out my phone - very handy when I am working. The judgement functions are just a bonus.

    it's sad how much it's deteriorated in the past 4 years or so. The discussions always veer into weird pissing matches, the few informative posts get eaten up by BS posts that have nothing to do with the OP, and all the good posters seem to have gone.

    People are acting like fools over there. Sorry, but acting like fools is the FOO's domain. Now, we could fight 'em with conventional weapons. That could take years and cost millions of lives. Oh no. No, in this case, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.

    Nice Animal House reference LIZF.

    Nothing is over until we decide it is. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

    Let's guess what the #### means in F1D's title!

    I am guessing it is not hair.

    And you are shocked, why? What I find funny is how it is I who gets taken to task when I make comments about Jazz. It instantly turns into no free speech... blah... blah... blah. These guys are really killing the board.

    I think all y'all are just extremely spoiled.

    The fact is, the MBB is one of the most sensitive, thoughtful, and respectful fan boards one is going to find on the vast tubes de' net.

    Y'all really ought to get out more, see some real fan boards, I'm talking SEC football fan boards, where Nick Saban knows nothing about football bc he lost to Clemson last year, THAT type of fanboard.

    Are there stupid posts?

    Of course.

    But, I submit to you, that pound for pound, I would put our board up against anyone's, in terms of thoughtful stuff, level-headed analysis, etc.

    Not that it can't be better, and I think it is well-moderated to push it in a better direction. But, seems to me that things are just fine.
