It was the giant cherry on top of that turd of a game. Someone was obviously fond of Archie. For the life of me, I couldn't understand how we were even in the game considering that we got the living crap kicked out of us. I still can't get my head around the last 30 seconds. Obviously I would have loved a win. But I would have felt a little dirty about it because we didn't deserve it.
I was okay with it, because they were essentially setting up a halftime interview with Sean and Archie's father. It's that they left it up for what seemed to be a rather silly amount of time. It just detracted from the telecast.
I have to say that the guys on Blackburn Review are truly funny. They have to be the kind of guys with whom you would enjoy having a few beers. The UDPRIDE people are, well, good lord.
Didn't see it as I was at the game... you could tell Archie was a young, immature head coach.
I guess at a UD home game a few weeks back, Archie actually went over and yelled at the NCAA director of officials on the other side of the court during a timeout. I was a little surprised by the way he carried on on the sidelines at times. At halftime, he literally pushed a 6 or 7 year old ball boy into the basket to move him out of the way.
At another timeout at the beginning of the second half, a UD coach tried to grab a player and the player shoved him away and walked I think to the end of the bench by himself.
I always liked Archie... didn't know much about him... but thought highly of him just because he was groomed under Thad Matta and Sean Miller. But I was just taken aback by his immaturity and the apparent loose ship he runs up north with players treating coaches like that... sounds eerily familiar.
