Learn it. Learn it well. For this is us in the foreseeable future. Or at least until Duke coach Krzyzewski mistakenly switches his recruiting class with ours.
"If you play a team in the top 15 in the country and beat them on their floor it accents who you are," (SDSU coach Steve) Fisher said. "So we know the value that can be added to a win at BYU. We are well aware of it."
You might KNOW it. But can you EXECUTE it? We shall see. Let the game begin.
Are we really going to watch SDSU at BYU this Wednesday?
Are we going to put ourselves through this again?
The rundown is the same. A must win for the Aztecs against a ranked opponent to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive. San Diego State is creeping back into multiple bracket predictions as a possible 4th team from the Mountain West and a possible 12th seed. But we should know better. We've seen Groundhog Day. We know Einstein's definition of insanity.
But before anyone accuses us of schadenfreude, here is a non-biased opinion from College Hoops Journal:
They stay jackasses all their lives.

Is DeMarcus Cousins the most immature player in college basketball? You know he nearly blew Kentucky's win over Vanderbilt. We gave him a free pass on the Mississippi Sate situation. But damn. Really, Cuz?
"Yesterday all my trouble seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh I believe in yesterday"
- Paul McCartney, Yesterday
Oh what a difference 3 years make. The Southern Illinois Salukis were the talk of the town, their coach was the queen of the ball getting them to their 3rd Sweet 16 in school history, along with numerous job offers.
My how things change...
If you can stomach the hi-larious Hitler reference therein lies a point. SIU has been in a horrific talespin losing nearly every other game. In a world of "what have you done for me lately" no matter how rational the defenders of coach Chris Lowery are, you will always have haters.
Long live the haters. And happy Friday.
Congrats to Rutgers today...
They totally "Luchini"ed Georgetown last night, 71 to 78. This game wasn't on our radar but wow, what a game. We think the Scarlet Knights should get in to tournament just on that performance alone.
"I both felt that the time away was important for my personal and professional well-being and that I am ready to move ahead from this point at full speed."
- Jim Calhoun, UConn head coach
"Are you fucking kidding me? Losing 4 out of the last 5 games?! Losing to fucking Providence?! Blaney?! That's how you fucking repay me after I leave you in charge of the team you fucking cocksucker?? I'm sick as a dog and you are forcing me to come back!"
Happy Friday, Huskies.
We still would not support the expansion of the NCAA Tournament to 96 teams even though that would allow San Diego State to get into the Big Dance because they are always the perennial bubble out team in the current 64 format.
Go Azte... Aw, fuck it.
At West Virginia University we know that the women are trashy. The students love to burn their furniture. At basketball games their profanity laced tirades have gotten them into hot water on more than one occasion. And now, just to top themselves they have resorted to throwing empty alcohol bottles at referees and opposing coaches during games.
"It's annoying," West Virginia forward Da'Sean Butler told reporters afterward. "It shows people outside our state that we don't have class."
Now WVU is becoming a school other schools are modeling themselves not to be.
Country, man. Pure country.
