I guess I should have put Diamond Stone in my thread title...

:-(

I just started laughing my ass off at this, people in my office are looking at me like I've got 6 heads. Very high on the unintentional comedy scale. Well done.

You can't take over NYC with a 2-6 football team. A football team that has been atrocious the past 4 years. You don't get fans by waving a flag in a city - you get fans by winning games.

That's like a Seton Hall fan saying, "hey we went to the Final Four once and we're here to run NYC because we have Isaiah Whitehead." Nope.

Great - next you will tell me about our garbage student athletes, oh wait you already did that last month - be happy in the AAC or be part of the revolution!
Amant eam vivam didici!!
I bet you didn't think ISIS could take over a portion of the Middle East - anything is possible when you put your mind to it!

Syracuse has a sign inside of Yankeez Stadium as NYC team; they are 3-6!

I hate losing. But I hate basketball fans that hate on other UConn sports much much more.

Jesus here we go again. They're bad at playing football. Yes, the word garbage is a synonym for bad. Football will get us to a better conference, but fans waving flags in downtown Manhattan will not. When Diaco takes the Huskies to consistent bowl games, that'll make peoples heads turn and generate buzz.

ISIS comment isn't really necessary, but whenever you have such a corrupt, disorderly government that can't apply rule, regular folk will start to look towards people that have authority - ISIS has authority. No surprise in their quick takeover.

I don't actually - just saying the team and the players are bad doesn't mean I hate the program. I support Diaco and the team. I'm just admitting that the team is bad.

So when a BB player has a bad night shooting, playing defense, or overall game make sure you support me when I call it or the student athlete garbage!

No need to worry - I won't use that synonym unlike you but I will expect you to use it.

So many players have taken criticism from the basketball board. Omar Calhoun, Taliek Brown, Oriakhi, Roscoe Smith, even Shabazz at times. And sometimes people do say, "yeah they're sucking right now. They're playing bad. They're bad tonight. They've been terrible all season."

It happens.

Yes. Omar Calhoun was garbage last year - he had an injured hip and his play was garbage as a result. That's a fact...

Not a fact. To me, garbage includes off the court issues. Omar had a tough year, but he stayed positive in the locker room...who knows how the season turns out if he wasn't such a great teammate.

Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when UConn basketball lost to Houston? NO!!! Was it over when Montrezl Harrell bullied his way over, around, and through the MBB interior? NO!!! Is the UConn football takeover of NYC over because the football team is 2-6? Hell no!

Stand behind your words - you didn't call the players play as garbage - your exact words on the FB board were garbage recruits - not that their play was garbage.

Way to try to change it. We can go back and forth all night long if you want but if you want to keep your BY respect I will expect you to call a BB player garbage as in your words it is a synonym for bad - the player and not their play.

You are the true definition of fan. We need supporters and not fanatics.

There is now $200 pledged to the Yarder who covers up "Syracuse" on their stupid New York's Team sign at the stadium, replacing it with UConn. See similar thread on Football board for details. :)

I agree. I hope he has a good season this year - we'll need him to get his 3-pt shot back on track. Shabazz bailed us out on so many possessions last year with deep jumpers - that won't be easily replaced this year.

Honestly, it's a disappointing showing by the Yard.

Absolutely love the enthusiasm. Would have picked a different analogy though. Even if amusing.

Haven't had the same volume of Bluto references on the Yard in recent years as in years past.
