Steve Lavin Thinks I’m Retarded

Filed under: General — Joe Aiello @ 8:02 pm

I’m a huge Illinois basketball fan and usually enjoy the duo of Steve Lavin and Brent Musberger on the mic. Today, though, Lavin insulted my intelligence with commentary he passed off as insightful but was actually a retarded excuse for analysis. His comment about Illinois this season was paraphrased as follows:

After yet another made free throw, Lavin remarked that it was the story of the Illini season. If they could just make more free throws, shoot the ball better, and turn it over less, they would have had a lot different season this year.

Wow Steve, that’s insightful. So basically, if I understand you correctly, if the Illini would have just had a better team, they would have had a…wait for it…better season. Brilliant. Steve, go away and quit assuming I’m a moron that buys the crap you’re selling.

    Probably why he isn’t coaching. With in depth analysis like that, I’m not sure who wouldn’t pass him up. :roll:

    That’s one crew I stay away from, unless I’m doing the Brent Musberger drinking game.

    Best headline ever Joe!

    I think the Illini would have won a lot more games if they had scored more points than their opponents on a more frequent basis. I think my alma mater, Syracuse, had a similar problem this year.

    I think the Cubs would have made it to the NLCS last year if they hadn’t let Arizona win 3 games first.

    …….see, I’m ready for my coaching assignment now!
