Ready for the Turd in 'Furd?


Well fans, if you thought last nights game was a tough one to win, you have to believe that the Bruins have little or no shot when they travel to Palo Alto on Saturday.

Sure the Cardinal are less talented then the Bears with an inferior record and are not picked to finish as high in the Pac 10.  But who thinks this Bruin team has enough talent, moxie and focus to come out and play inspired enough basketball to pull out a Bay Area sweep?  If you do, you need to take off the  myopic glasses and come back down to earth.

As many of you know, during the game thread last night, our friend Nestor morphed into Captain Kierkegaard of the good ship "Naysayer" spewing all sorts of negativity about how the Bruins were destined to lose and had no chance.  He was the little Devil on our shoulder that we all were desperately trying to silence as the game wore on.   (Think of the Devil in Animal House telling the young Pinto to have his way with the young coed.)  We wanted to think it, but as fans were trying to think positively, hopefully, all we got was Capt. Kierke dousing us with his glass half empty.

Well, as the "Eat Crow" chants died down late last night, I began to realize that Nestor was just being more real than most.  This team, despite pulling out a hard fought win, is poised for a  huge let down Saturday.  Why you ask?  Experience tells us that after big wins, or even hard fought losses, this team can't rise up and play well enough to win.  It is too young, too lacking in talent and not committed to playing BenBall defense to win back-to-back games on the road.

I sure hope I'm wrong, but I doubt it.  I'll try to ignore Nestor and that little negative voice in my head screaming "There is no way Nelson makes these free throws", or "There is no way we can stop Drago's man from making easy layups from the back side of the zone".  But, alas, I fear the voices will be too loud.  If I'm wrong, I'll grab my box of Crow cereal, a bowl, spoon and some milk, and share some Crow with Nester.

Until then, I'm dubbing the game on Saturday, "The Turd in 'Furd".  Bring  your TP, Bruin fans, it's gonna be ugly.
