Merry Christmas Bluejay Fans

Ok, I can't write much - it's 2 am and I just got home from Omaha to Boston.  I'm 8 hours late due to missed flights and such.  I'm exhausted and bummed out that I missed the Jays win over Depaul.  Big win.  Jays are now 1-1 vs. the BCS.  Now that 1 L really hurts because ole Slingblade's club got beat by Maryland Baltimore County.  Yup Yup. 

UMBC...ya know - the team that lost to Morgan St and Townson this year.  Oh, this game was at HOME!  Jays RPI up to 61.  UNL 102 and climbing fast.  I've said the over/under on Big 12 wins for NU is 5...I'll stick to it.

Congrats to Booker for really becoming the go-to guy for CU and picking up the MVP award in Vegas.  Nice tournament win for CU to end the non-conference and look who's next up!  Good Old Double G himself and Shocker Nation.  See you Sunday!!

UMBC made the NCAA Tourney last year...did Creighton?

Yes, our loss tonight sucked really bad. Played horrible in the 1st half again, came out and played well in the 2nd half. Then the last 10 minutes of the game, the refs had some [sarcasm]awesome[/sarcasm] calls for us. About 11 of them to be exact.

If we keep playing 20 minutes of bad basketball, we are going to lose every game in the Big 12. I mean that's 20 minutes of bad basketball is good enough to beat Creighton, but that won't cut it in the Big 12.

Having the week off will be good for us. We can get Cookie back and get Alonzo, Ryan, and Paul healthy again.

Terrible loss though, that's a team we should beat even with Cookie out and all of our injuries.

I hope you stay in Boston forever.

Truth hurts huh? Again, No P'Allen is the answer to why things didn't go well in Lincoln. UMBC made the tourney out of 1 bid league...They lost to Morgan St.

I don't need to say very much here. There is no defensive for a loss like that at home

andy said...

umm...the Mo Valley was a one-bid league last year.

And it seems like you and other CU fans cheer for Nebraska to lose, which is fine, but don't act like CU fans are any better than NU fans.

sublime_fan27 said...

Well maybe no Cookie was the reason we lost to UMBC.

Also, Andy makes a good point, the MVC was a 1 bid league last year. Creighton fans and politicians, without them we wouldn't know what a contradiction was.

BTW, University of Nebraska 54.........cu 52

don geevafuc said...

Basically the argument Matt likes to make about Creighton losing to Nebraska because P'Allen did not play means that he 1) believes P'Allen would have made the difference and lifted Creighton to victory and 2) without P'Allen, Creighton is unable to beat a fairly bad Nebraska team.

It doesn't really speak very well for Creighton's team if one player not playing takes them down to the level of a depleted, undersized, undermanned Nebraska squad, does it?

don geevafuc said...

Plus, Nebraska was missing a couple players for the Creighton game. Or does that argument only go one way and only if it puts Creighton in a better light?

beav said...

54-52. If you don't like it Creighton, then don't lose to Nebraska.

Red Sox Fan said...

I don't think any self-respecting CU fan likes to lose...let alone to Nebraska. But the best eligible player in the building that day - didn't play.

However, I think the 2 losses by 4 points help the Jays really gell and become a better team. The losses will prove to be a turning point for the team so you can thank NU for that.

Sure, you've got scoreboard...enjoy it. Enjoy the Jays playing in the post season cause NU isn't going back to the NIT

don geevafuc said...

who cares if nebraska makes it to the NIT this year? sadler wants to build a team to make it to the NCAA tournament. this year and next year will probably be the zenith of creighton basketball and they are probably looking at an NIT appearance this year. the whole nebraska versus creighton battle is extremely silly and trivial. both teams are not very good but one can feel superior for a season because of a win which does little more than create a minor blip on the regional radar.

nebraska even lost to creighton last year and still ended up having a better season. creighton has to try to prove they are the best team in nebraska. nebraska hopes to beat creighton but knows there are much tougher and more important games on their schedule. the whole debate is akin to a couple scrawny g-dogs debating on a street corner in the hood about which one of them is the tougher, thuggier gangsta'. each one would get pummeled by 90% of the people in the neighborhood but since they are both loud mouthed fools with very little to back up their talking they hardly notice how insignificant and inept they both are.

Matt, it's Christmas, let it go.. Sadler it is, just for a week.

Matt's favorite cologne has to be Obsession by Calvin Klein! Hell, give it to any Creighton fan, they are obsessed with Nebraska!

Mr. Trofholz said...

Matt,

Do you really want to get into the, you lost to a team who lost to a team, who........After all this Morgan State team which you spoke of so callously of beat a Depaul team that Creighton just beat in that sweet Las Vegas tournament by about the same margin as CU. Not only that, if you're going to go down that road, Wright State improved to 1-6 this year with a win against Arkansas-Little Rock who I believe Creighton lost to.

Moreover, UMBC was a tourney team last year. When was the last time Creighton beat a tourney team?? Let me save you some time, you'll want to start looking prior to last year's schedule, because there were NONE!!! Nebraska on the other hand beat 6.

And, if I may be permitted to use your logic, the UMBC game really doesn't count as a loss; because it was only by 2 points right???

One more thing, you know what could have helped Creighton gel and become a better team?? Not bombing up 28 three balls against a helpless, winless Southern team at home, and instead working on some things for when they face the elite (oxymoron) teams of the Missouri Valley.

No P'Allen
No P'Allen
NO P'Allen

but one game doesn't make a season....but maybe it does Nebraska's...Doc better hope so cause it might be his best win this year

sublime_fan27 said...

That's funny, Husker fans have been saying that one game doesn't define a season all year now...unless of course you are Creighton who only cares about beating Nebraska to prove that they have a much bigger penis than they actually have.

That won't even be close to Nebraska's "biggest" win of the eyar.

farmboy2376 said...

I've never seen a 30+plus year old act like such a 10 year old when his team wins and another team he doesn't like loses.

May want to act your act Matt.

As far as CU is concerned......they lost to a team 6'6" and under. That proves how overrated Kenny Lawson and Kenton Walker are.

BTW, look closely at the players Nebraska has coming in. Ask Jerrell Crayton about talent of Brandon Ubel. Nebraska is building a team that will have the size, skill and athleticism to be a NCAA team. As far as this year is concerned.....

Chris Balham-knees busted when he arrived on campus.
Alonzo Edwards-Back spasms.
Christopher Niemann-Lame NCAA rule
Roburt Sallie-Lame NU admissions.

So, this whole business about P'Allen is not as relevant as you believe. Bottom line, in 06 and 08 CU had NU out manned. The difference has been the adjustments and game planning by Doc Sadler.

beav said...

Also, if your prediction of 5 big 12 wins for the huskers is true, then the bluejays better darn well win mvc tourney. That loss coupled with the loss to Ark LR will submarine the jays NCAA hopes.

WelcomeBackDana said...

Sublime fan. I would like to address your post about CU fans being obsessed with NU for one second. This is a CREIGHTON fan's blog, and yet every entry about basketball is FLOODED with NU fans, and very few CU offering any rebuttal except for the host of this blog. Last I checked its 10-1 husker fans to jays fans........on a CREIGHTON fans blogger. The game is over, you guys won by 2, now leave and go lose 15 games in the big 12. Just go back and read all the entries about bball, besides Matt you won’t find a CU fan wasting his time arguing with you morons with more than an occasion entry.

Show me a Nebraska basketball fan's blog that CU fans invade and dominate then you can begin to talk about obsession………

Pathetic is the only word that comes to mind. If you, Andy, Beav, Mr Trolholz and others who are on here EVERY DAY talking stuff on Creighton hate Creighton so much (there are several of you and you know it).... then why are you here??

Again, show me a NU fans blog that CU fans dominate and then you can talk like that.

What a joke!!

rocket said...

Welcome Back Dana, can you show me where on the bigsports590 website it says Blue Jay Blog? So now in addition to Creighton owning the Qwest Center they also own the only Fox Sports Radio affiliate in Omaha. Did you not notice in the blog that Matt discussed both the Blue Jays and Huskers? So if this is a BlueJay Blog then Matt is an obsessed fan. The only joke on the BigSports 590 Blog is you.

WelcomeBackDana said...

"This is a CREIGHTON fan's blog"

A CU fan’s…….. Not CU’s

Those were my words.....you idiots hear what you want to hear and see what you want to see. Thats why you are all so pathetic. As stated in my last entry, I am not going to waste my time arguing with all you huskers fans who for some reason spend alot of time on a cu fan's blog. I am just trying to kill some time at work today.

1 for 1 on dodging the issue on obession, nice work!!

Go Jays!!

Later

beav said...

Pathetic is a host that constantly insults the head coach of NU basketball and says that the NU players are "disrespectful".

Creighton, know your roll.

Coughunter said...

Good one Matt or should I say Gary Danielson wannabe junior. Rip on the skers all you want but CU lost to them so what does that say. If you actually watched the game you would see that UMBC was just on their game last night. They hit
every shot which was amazing. Good job beating Depaul and good luck in that tough tough Mo Valley 1 NCAA bid conference. If only NU could play in that conference every year. When CU makes it to the big time let me know. Oh have
fun cheering for the husker football team too CU fans. Good one making fun of Sadler too loser. I'm sure he'd slap that accent right out of your collar popping, metro wannabe, gay accent, boston homo! I hope you got your xmas present yesterday of Dana Altaman getting a divorce.

Mr. Trofholz said...

WelcomeBackDana,

I only come on this blog to combat the unsubstantiated rants of your patriarch Matt. Any public figure that spouts off, but cannot support his claims with anything but his narrow minded bias's, deserves to be called out.

And the fact that, like you said, FEW Creighton fans come in here, on a "CU Blog" and offer any rebuttal, leads me to believe that they are either embarrassed by Matt's feeble attempts to try vicariously boost CU's reputation by slandering the Huskers, or they/you are actually the "uneducated basketball" fans who are unable to support, factually, your self perceived dominance, and not the Nebraska fans that Matt spoke of as not knowing basketball on his radio show.

Your thoughts???

Red Sox Fan said...

I don't think anyone should judge who reads this blog by the postings on here. I don't allow anonymous posts so if you don't have a google account - you can't post on here. Many more people just read this blog and don't post.

sublime_fan27 said...

Matt,

You think you are far more important than you actually are.

Red Sox Fan said...

I must be pretty important to you since you're posting on here nearly every day
