Frank Martin in SEC 1st Place



  • So, my wife got free tickets to SC vs Alabama. Great seats, huh? At least we are only in the next-to-last row! Just a slight, eenie-meenie possibility we will move down later…

    First place? Where the hell is everyone? 50 min until tip! 20170207_173450.jpg



  • @mayjay pretty sure u can move down



  • @mayjay

    If it was MU you would move to court-side seats…



  • @JayHawkFanToo That was a dirty blow. We wouldn’t be there.



  • @Crimsonorblue22 My wife said we need the exercise…



  • @mayjay

    Just a hypothetical…when I saw that Arena I though it was MU at halftime. :smirk:



  • @JayHawkFanToo good one! Or a big 12 when they’re not playing ku



  • @JayHawkFanToo SEC Basketball could fill a jr high gym.



  • @mayjay LMAO. Hey, I used to do the same thing at KU in the late 70’s-early 80s. I’d buy a student ticket, and sneak my way down…



  • @mayjay

    I am not so sure about that…some of the Junior HS in my area can hold a couple of thousand fans…maybe you meant couldn’t? :smiley:



  • @JayHawkFanToo 3:21 left 1st half. SC down 28-11. Unfortunately we moved closer.

    By the way, not impressed with the collective bb IQ of the audience. Booed and did the Bull---- chant when a SC player dribbled with his right hand, got it back with the right, then shifted the ball to his left hand before dribbling again. Possiblt never saw a blatant dbl dribble before?



  • Ha, just a tad funny. - -was watching a little bit of the Kentucky/LSU game - I think the fans just a little frustrated, I saw quite a few empty seats & it was so quiet you could hear a pin drop - things getting out of control now - but still funny seeing/watching that - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @JayHawkFanToo Or LSU. I’ve frequently sat at the courtside table with no problem. Pay 5 bucks for the ticket and move down there. I saw Alabama this year actually Mayjay. Avery Bradley is fun to watch coach.



  • mercy, Alabama? South Carolina - - South Carolina - -THREE - FOR THIRTY in the first half, 10% shooting what the hell? - -ummm that’s bad lmao—ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • 1st lesson for my wife in “Don’t leave a game behind by 10 pts with 3:45 left just because your wife wants to get out of the parking lot”: now in double OT.



  • @JayHawkFanToo na if it was MU the lights wouldn’t be on 50 minutes before the tip.



  • @mayjay idk think there are seats that bad in AFH, maybe up in 13a or 9a.



  • DSCN1030.JPG Where I watch LSU games from for 5$. Yes, that’s Joel’s future teammate Ben Simmons.



  • Triple OT!! My wife is sitting there laughing like a drunken leprachaun! At least we can watch on SEC network.

    She wanted to stop watching in 2008 with 3 min left but I wouldn’t let her. Fortunately, we don’t care too much about SC…but leaving a 3 OT game? SHE WILL NEVER LIVE THIS DOWN!



  • @wissox dam I wish KU tickets were cheaper but we’re gonna pay lol.



  • @kjayhawks Looking forward to seeing the Jayhawks in Austin in 2 weeks. 40 bucks a piece is still kind of steep for me, but well worth it.



  • @mayjay

    Congrats. You have earned yourself major capital…use it wisely or save for the time when she tells you screwed up big time…and yes, that time will come.😟



  • @JayHawkFanToo 1st FOUR overtime game in 114 years of SC basketball. New SC individual point scoring record (Thornwell, 44 pts–and counting)… Maybe we should go back to the arena?



  • @mayjay

    Why? You have hit the mother load of spousal capital, one more OT and you are in new Harley Davidson territory…let it ride and enjoy it…😀



  • This maybe the only first game that has taken so long the second game is has 15 minutes left



  • @JayHawkFanToo She hasn’t let me buy my new car…



  • @mayjay yes! U let the whole team down!



  • @wissox ya I’m poor folk too lol. I live 2 hours from Lawrence and get to once a year unless I get a steal.



  • @mayjay

    There you go…new car it is…



  • Game over. SC lost.

    I am sure local broadcasters will say the usual “And no one has left the arena!” which is, of course, a lie…

    We had fun. And we aren’t stuck in the parking lot!!!



  • @mayjay No one’s ever stuck in a parking lot during basketball season in SEC country except at UK.



  • @wissox Actually, at UK I think they live in the parking lot…



  • @mayjay

    Ya gotta hand it to Frankie: he has competed against Self and KU and Cal and Kentucky and can hold his head up. Frankie likes his Morros y Christianos, platanos maduras fritas, y bistec empanizado con pan Cubano. I hope he gets a summer place down in Cuba and reconnects with the old homestead. I made a lot of jokes about concrete converse and one way boat rides out on Tuttle, but he was a fine coach and he had the get better gene. Rock Chalk Frankie.



  • @mayjay

    JINX!!



  • @mayjay

    “First place? Where the hell is everyone?”

    Probably getting cocked!



  • @JayHawkFanToo

    "If it was MU you would move to court-side seats…’

    You might even get paid to sit low, within range of TV cameras.

    I’d ask for more than $5 personally. No way you could force bad basketball on me for less.
