I am not the weirdo I thought I was. You to picked up the "Li'l bit" "filler" Bromely uses. I have a knack (or obsession) for picking up on those things and have thought about pointing it out before. I noticed it on verbal interviews first. Some how I think he minimizes mistakes, letdowns and just plain bad play by experienced players with his li'l bit attitude. He needs to get "big time pissed" sometimes. He does consistently remain "proud of those young men" though and rightfully so. This upcoming game is huge for us. Shane appears to be hitting his stride, Varnie is very confident in the paint and the guards are helping out. The table is set all we have to do is play our game, hold turnovers down to 12 or less and hit 80%+ of our freethrows.
Lets send the gauchoes home grumbling.

Go Mustangs.......
