Texas Southern enters the game winless on the 2021-22 season. Coached by former LSU Head Coach, and victim of BJ Anya’s finest moment, Johnny Jones, the Tigers are like most MBB teams in the SWAC. They spend the entire non conference season on the road raising money for the athletic department by taking beatings from the power conferences. They are led in scoring by John Walker at 14.8 PPG. TSU shoots 40% from the field and 23.7% from beyond the arc. Those are numbers that could make the Pack’s defense look good.
The Pack has an opportunity to rebound from its first loss of the season in front of what one would suspect will be a partial sellout crowd at the PNC. My apologies for using the word rebound in connection with this team. It’s clearly an area in need of improvement going forward if the Pack is to exceed the lowered expectations since the loss of Manny Bates. This should be an easy win for State but we thought that about other games. Hopefully it’s a snoozer.
Bonus point for naming TSU’s most famous alum.
I love a good trivia question...given we are talking sports here, I'll say LaDanian Tomlinson.
Ladanian Tomlinson was TCU.
obviously, i am confused.
is this a Sports Alum or Any Alum for anything?
We’ll go with sports alum.
Well I cheated so won't mention it, but that would be a difficult Jeopardy question.
It’s an easy question if you’ve driven past the campus on I-45 in the heart of the scenic third ward. TSU has had several billboards over the years featuring the alum I have in mind.
Tex: Nice write up.
The computers like the Pack by 12 and give State an 88% chance of winning this game. Bethune Cookman is the only bigger cupcake left on the schedule.
For what it’s worth, these same computers think we finish with a losing record overall and go 8-12 in the ACC regular season. That feels about right to me.
oh well, same state...gave it a shot
I cheated too (for the right answer, not for the wrong one :-()...never would have guessed that.
Oh no, the home cooking failed the cheats.
Colgate beating Cuse
Colgate won 100-85
Could that move our win over toothpaste U up a quadrant, perhaps?
That’s Vawolf territory
That may put it right on the cuspid of a Q3 win.
Trivia question answer is
Houston native and TSU alum.
I’d have never guessed the alum. I remembered he was from a small school but not which one, and had no mental linkage to the answer.
Colgate should be a Q3 win. Had it been on a neutral court it might have slipped into Q2.
Did anyone watch Michael Strahan’s genealogy trace on TV? PBS show iirc.
Does anyone know the amount of the check we have to cut to TSU?
Sorry couldn't resist
Darn. Can't figure out how to paste a gif that actually plays. So imagine a gif of Dr. Evil from Goldmember saying "one million dollars".
