Happy Thanksgiving Eve, everyone.
Things got a little intense last week. Little too serious. So we're going to keep things light-hearted this week. You know, pick on schools who can take it.
We'll start off with hoops and the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, where along with BC, the UConn Huskies came to play. I was hoping BC would get a crack at the Huskies again after almost knocking them off last year at MSG, but with our loss to West Virginia, it was not to be.
Instead, the Mountaineers were matched up with UConn in the championship game.
UConn had a bad time. Four players were suspended for the game—bench players, but still—and lost 78-68. No idea what those players did but my completely unfounded guess is it has to do with Puerto Rico being awesome and the players accidentally on purpose missed curfew.
Anyway the fun thing here was following the former editor of The UConn Blog during the game.

and a foul called on wvu. if uconn had committed the same foul, we would have been banned from the ncaa tournament— We take the stairs (@NoEscalators) November 24, 2014
hey, the refs may not have gotten a call right tonight, but at least they don't know how many fucking free throws there are at a given time— We take the stairs (@NoEscalators) November 24, 2014
YOU LITERALLY CALLED THAT FOUL BECAUSE THE GUY DID A NICE DRIBBLE MOVE, FUCK YOU— We take the stairs (@NoEscalators) November 24, 2014
Ah, now those are some sweet, salty tears.
Next up—let's check in on Terriers In The Pros.
Oh this is delicious. Whiffing on the pass is bad enough, but bowling over your goalie is the kind of ineptitude that gets you into the Tears.
That reminds me—I really wish this series existed back when UConn's Dan Orlovsky ran out the back of the end zone when he played for the lions.
Next...sound familiar, anybody?
Due to ice difficulties, Providence at UNH has been postponed to a date TBA. Firars and Wildcats still set to play tomorrow at 5pm.— Hockey East (@hockey_east) November 21, 2014
According to CHN, "Excess water was coming up through the ice." Yikes. Is that good? I don't think that's good.
Lastly, not really tears, but here's a pretty sweet post from The Mothership with all the great signs from Gameday at Harvard. Kids these days. Nothing like nerdy insults between Ivies.
Someday Yale is going to win The Game. Until then I will be sad.
