Earlier today The Monarchs of Old Dominion posted a hype video. It rivals the Will Smith 76ers hype video from last years NBA Playoffs. It’s just so freaking good. The clips of their CUSA Tourney run with nothing but the scores at the end, the remix of “Without Me” by Eminem, the two players in the beginning just pointing at the NCAA logo, hoisting the trophy up after a long hard year. All of it. So. Freakin. Cool.
I hate every single second of it. ALL OF IT. NOT ONLY DID THEY WIN THE TITLE THAT WAS RIGHTFULLY OURS, THEY ALSO HAVE “PLAYER OF THE YEAR,” THEY ALSO USED ONE OF MY FAVORITE SONGS TO RUB IT IN, THEY ALSO WON AT THE PRACTICE FACILITY OF MY FAVORITE FOOTBALL TEAM, THEY ALSO GET TO GO TO CONNECTICUT, THEY ALSO LOST TO US IN ONE OF THE MOST FANTASTIC WAYS NOT EVEN THREE MONTHS AGO. UGH
I’m bitter, I’m mad, I feel downright cheated. It should’ve been Nick holding that trophy, should’ve been Gio and Toby pointing at the NCAA logo. It should’ve been acrobatic shots by Jhivan and downtown threes from Keaton making up the bulk of this video. I just hurt so bad.
The fact that the two games that we played against them over the course of this year where two of the most exciting games this conference had this season is a bit comforting, but its also why it hurts so bad, cause had we seen them in the tournament, we could’ve had them.
CUSA referees ruined one of the most exciting, fantastic, program changing seasons this school has ever had. HOWEVER, this blog is not about how much the refs in this conference stink, its about how much I hate Old Dominion.
Cause I really do. They are stuck up, and rude. They don’t deserve half of the accolades they got. CUSA robbed Jhivan and I guess Elmore of the Player of the Year to give it to Stith WHO ONLY HAD 36 POINTS THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE TOURNAMENT (JHIVAN HAD 35 IN THE ONE GAME HE PLAYED IN.) THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON THAT BJ GOT THIS AWARD THIS SEASON. IN THE TWO TIMES WE PLAYED THEM OUR LEADING SCORER OUT SCORED HIM BY AT LEAST FIVE EACH TIME. HES A HACK AND HE DOESN’T DESERVE THIS AWARD. I HATE THIS CONFERENCE AND I HATE OLD DOMINION.
After all of this I’ve decided to officially change my prediction to Purdue beating ODU in the first round.
Boiler Up Purdue. Please destroy them for me.
