Clemson Game Thread

1-2 on the road trip without Markell makes this is a much needed game in the friendly confines of PNC Arena.  Any chance at an NCAA tourney appearance likely hinges on Johnson's return ASAP.  If his injury lingers for a couple more weeks or more I think we begin the shift into "wait till next season" mode.

The Tigers are beatable without him, however, and I suspect we'll be about 4 point favorites at least come Saturday (assuming he misses the game).

Thus it feels like Clemson becomes a critical game which we need to put in the W column.

  • We made the trip to Raleigh.  Hope we see some good basketball instead of what I listened to on the radio last night.  Not interested in watching a turnover/foul fest.

    Need to win this one with what we have ahead. Clemson always seems to muck it up so hopefully we can force the tempo.

    Feels like a must win kind of game.  I think we’ll get it done.

    It does, doesn’t it? Hopefully, we can get Markell some minutes and get dubya.

    Often wondered.....if the consonant, "W" is supposed (per my days at WRAL and WKNC) to be pronounced Double U, then why does the letter look like it should be pronounced Double V.  Would have been much simpler as UU....

    Local media are speculating on Tre coming in some for Mikey.....NO WORD (hopefully part of a cagey strategy) from HBBC KK on Markell.  I don't remember him even saying.....will be Game Day call.....

    Some of the other sites or perhaps blogs have commented that a "Bruised Bone" is a highly subjective term and that the severity can not be medically evaluated.  It is a more of "Pain or Discomfort" level quantification from the patient.   IT should be noted that that poster was NOT a doctor, but was married to one....MD or PhD?....did not specify, but Dr. Google seems to be of the same opinion.

    Markell, if I read the comments or listened, is taking shots in practice, but not running or participating and is receiving therapy, in addition to cortisone injections.

    If that was posted here and that is where I read it, I give full credit and apologize to the poster for not including his name....and also for repeating information or crossing "posting borders".

    Vegas has us 5 point favorites.  Pat on the back for my 4 point favorite prediction yesterday.  Line will shift if MJ plays.

    Roo - that’s my impression as well.

    MJ upgraded from questionable to "game time decision" and seen warming up before the game today.
  • TheAliasTrollTheAliasTroll Posts: 1,650PFN Referee
    He's not in the starting lineup...
  • AdventurooAdventuroo Posts: 1,517
    Thanks Troll.  At home today as DW & Dghtr at game.

    if he plays, regardless of outcome, that will top my “best news of the day” post about Archie Miller’s record at IU.

    Looked like TV Teddy was on the floor at Dook which is good for our game

    Duke down by 8 or so early in H2.  TVTV calls time out and reads text.  Significant over whistling on GT and under whistling on Duke.

    Did not get a good lock on the phone to determine if it was Swoff’s or Mikey’s.

    Duke prevails by 13....

    Hell the folks in Pittsburgh probably don't even want to see that

    There's Markell!
  • PackPACPackPAC Posts: 212
    Sloppy start but here comes Markell!  Hope he's ready.

    Will the absurd foul disparity continue or will the ACC let the refs call it the other way so they can say "I told you so" when they screw us on the blue games.

    I fear you may be on to something there Rick.

    These announcers are in LOVE with the Tiggers.

    CJ Bryce has really stepped up over the last few games!
  • BasspackerBasspacker Posts: 140
    I really like Bryce....nice role player who can direct the offense and score.
  • TexpackTexpack Posts: 1,413
    I guess we looked better while the stream was locked up. 8 point swing
