(ST. LOUIS) — Am I really on my way back from St. Louis on a Sunday morning?
Did you know that St. Louis celebrates the second largest Mardi gras in the country behind New Orleans? I have never seen so many drunken youngsters before noon in my life…then the Shockers played.
I should have known that things were going to go badly when WUShock sprained his…er, it’s ankle-just as Indiana State started an 8-0 run in the first half. I’m not making this up. We hear that WU suffered a little root damage, but will survive to inspire a bumper crop in June.
It’s amazing how similar the Shockers have been in most of their eight losses. Indiana State provided a new twist Saturday going on a frustrating 18-1 run to take charge early in the second half. During that run WSU had no offensive flow, and no one to provide any. Of course, they made their inevitable late charge, but it came too late and now they’re NIT bound. Being in that locker room yesterday, I don’t see any way this team could be ready to play again. But youngsters are resilient and I’m sure that, with a little time, they’ll want to continue to play a little while longer.
