Despair, thy name is Wisconsin – Duke

Did you see Kentucky lose to Wisconsin last night? That is absolutely not what I wanted to happen.

Awful, terrible, horrible.

Here’ what BSP’s fantasy was: Kentucky beats Wisconsin, plays and annihilates Duke to go 40-0.

Here’s what BSP’s nightmare is: Wisconsin beats Kentucky, and gets hammered by Duke.

Frankly, Wisconsin got some help from officials. It’s not the kind of help you’re going to get against Duke. Which means the Badgers are dead in the water.

They are not going to beat Duke, and then we’ll be bombarded with the likes of ESPN, Mike Greenberg and Dan Patrick heaping praise on the Blue Devils and their godlike creature Coach K.

I’m only interested in what happens with Coach K after he’s out of there. BSP believes coaches who stick around for 30-40 years start to think more about themselves and their legacy than their teams and the players that play for them. It’s kind of what Paterno did at Penn State. I want to find out the dirt on Duke and how much stuff they’ve covered up since he’s been there.I just think it’s interesting Coach K went into shut-up mode after they dismissed Rasheed Sulaimon from that team. As in “media, shut-up and stop asking me questions.” You know what? They did. If John Calipari (a known rule violator) did that, he’d get barbecued.

Do I really believe the media wouldn’t expose Coach K for being a hypocrite? Of course. No one wants their hero to turn out to be a jerk, and the way they worship that guy would mean he made fools out of them. Sports media doesn’t like to be made a fool out of. Sports media likes feel-good douche stuff they can yell about.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
