I'm not a fan of what Miller is doing with this Dayton team.

Years past, Dayton would fill their 20 coach's ad player's ticket spots behind their teams bench and then 40-80 more fans. Today maybe 7-9 fans. At least one of those are bring home a black UMass tee shirt.

Please hire the coach a tailor, his sleeves are too long.

Way to go, Minutemen. They're "we" again for Z8.

The silence IS deafening. With alot of other programs, including UMass, the apathy is a given at this stage of a disappointing season. It's very unusual from the Dayton faithful. It must be an especially discouraging year for these guys for them not to show up at all. It's not really something to gloat about though. I used to do a hot pepper thing when Steve Lappas was patrolling the sidelines in Amherst. Junior Miller (sorry, I'm honestly forgetting the guys first name at the moment, and I'm a ready-fire-aim kind of guy) would be getting near habanero territory if I were a Dayton fan.

Only watched the 2nd half, saw everything I love and hate about this team in that short stretch. Chaz has me going from cheering and cursing his name and back to cheering, all in the space of 5 seconds, more than anyone I've ever followed. Kind of feel the same way about Vinson. I have made up my mind about Putney though. Not a fan anymore.

I also caught most of the 2nd half of the XU/VCU game too. This isn't your daddy's XU. They're just missing by the tiniest of margins. Those big guys just are not up to snuff in particular. And that guard's braindead move pulling on the jersey was dumber than anything I've seen out of UMass all season. I didn't think such a thing was possible. That's the greatest thing the A10 has had since Jameer? I need more supporting evidence. I can see the frosh is pretty good, but I probably need to see more before I went that strong.

And for those wondering, belated celebration of National Tequila Day here at the house. Some Mexican thing my ex-wife gave me as a belated wedding gift. If Steve81 asks what, I'll go find the bottle. Otherwise I'll just say that it's strong than the proof on the label would indicate. Or I'm a lightweight. I hope to h3ll that SpiderDave isn't reading this, if he watched the game too. As for why my ex would give me a gift, well, bdance is a complicated guy. Nice enough to marry, jerk enough to divorce, and back. I'm the Chaz Williams of relationships, except a good 5 inches taller (5-10)

That was Semaj Christon with the jersey pull. Pretty dumb, but he is a freshman. He usually doesn't play like a frosh, but today he did. It is what it is.

Oh and b you should marry a woman who travels alot for work. Whenever she gets sick of me (or vice versa) next thing you know a business trip overseas comes up! I have the house to myself for the next 13 days. It. Is. AWESOME.

I can see why she might have wanted to hedge her bets.

Another frustrating Dayton game. COuld not get over the hump when we drew even or took a 1-possession lead. Dillard was bad, untimely turnovers and stupid plays. We really miss Khari Price, he would have helped a ton in this game. UMass had some timely shooting and Lalane was really good.

Wish I would've put money on UMASS. Anytime UD plays X the next game they get drilled.

cady played like a pro yesterday. if he can give us 30-35 minutes of that every game then we'll be very dangerous in the a10 tourney.

That is what I absolutely love about X fans. Who else comes to a UD game thread to complain about the lack of fan involvement in said thread.

What would you like us to say, X Factor?

That they suck?

Well, UD just beat your boys pretty handily last Saturday, so what does that say about the Muskies?

The fact is that UD fans have grown wearisome of the close losses, lack of senior leadership, hit or miss defense and Jekyll and Hyde nature of this years squad.

We all greive in our own way. Not showing up on a MB during another UD road loss is ours.

Most of the time the regular Dayton fans here (flyer75, admam, etc.) will at least comment on the game in some manner.

Your pal Muddy comments over in the XU game thread...when we lose.
