The Relapse

relapse, noun
-Middle English, from Medieval Latin relapsus, from Latin relabi to slide back, from re- + labi to slide 1 : the act or an instance of backsliding, worsening, or subsiding
2 : a recurrence of symptoms of a disease after a period of improvement

24 turnovers, 9 assists, 34% from the field, 46.2% fga allowed, and a defense that guards beyond the arc like France defends its borders.  It was like '08-'09 redux. (and if you believe the official box score that OSU didn't block us, I've got some ocean-front property to sell you.)

Considering IU came into the game averaging 15.6 TOs, 15 assists, 74.6 pts/gm, 44% fg, and 40.8% fga, it's amazing how fragile progress can be, especially on the road. 

So much for the exuberance following the Michigan victory, it's gonna be a long fucking season

And as though the pains of watching IU take a shit at OSU weren't bad enough, BTN has to pour Shon Morris into my wounds. At this point I'm ready to amputate my ears.  I'm dumber for having to listen to his mindless babble.  Note to the BTN: Shon is not good at: talking, talking about basketball, or talking about things even tenuously related to basketball.  Come to think of it, it appears as though he pretty much sucks at life.
