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.
