    Default The perfect ending

    My dream scenario for tonight.

    Gophers up by double digits with game in hand with about 30 seconds left. Gopher ball handler runs directly at Davison wherever he is, runs him over. Offensive foul called. Gopher player politely hands ball to official, heads back to defensive end like nothing happened.

    Compared in the sense that Brad crossed the line, again my opinion. Allen was a far dirtier player as going out of your way to trip someone on 4 documented occasions was worthy of a very long suspension, again my opinion.

    Agreed, We all saw the Allen episodes during his NCAA career. His spelled out intent. My only point on Brad is intent. Nothing Brad has done IMO has warranted suspension. Could he play a little rough? Sure he can. I still want him on my team.

    Pick and roll to get a switch onto Murph. Give Murph the ball and let him put a shoulder down. A little pay back for his buddy Nate Mason.

    That or, Pree gets a steal and Davison slides in late to take a charge on the fast break and Pree puts him on a poster that will hang in Minnesota children's rooms for years to come.

    You think he accidentally punched another guy in the groin?

    Just dont see how the groin punch and Mason trip can be anything other than intentional. I know the narrative exists that the "grittiness" of the player puts him in situations where these things are more likely to happen. Not buying it.

    Well, except for the junk punch.

    Oy, the revisionism in this one is strong.

    And "accidentally" tripped Mason?

    I have friends with kids that have played sports with him for years in Maple Grove/Osseo. This should not surprise anyone who has known him for a long time.

    Really glad he's not wearing Maroon and Gold.

How does that put players at risk?
    Jumping in front of players and intentionally causing a collision can lead to injuries, especially if the offensive player is in the air and you undercut them.

    Apparently extending your arm out to the side is the proper way to get around a screen.

    Don’t forget the proper technique calls for a clenched fist.

    Agreed. I would be thrilled to have him on any of the teams i support.

    Yes it can and his technique to commit to contact can and has been used against him. UVA prepped for that aggressiveness and was able to get him to overplay several times, then they gave him some of his own medicine when he was on offense and frustrated him.

    Exactly. No one buys it. Not even the badger guys pretending to buy it

    Don't be ignorant, There is no way you could say his fist was clenched! Close your hand half way and look at it from the top. If you need to believe he actually punched him have at it.
