First off, I stole the headline from Rick Chandler at DEADSPIN. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I’m happy to report that college basketball season is upon on us. And you know what that means: Lots and lots and LOTS of Rick Majerus posts!
The BELLEVILE (IL) NEWS-DEMOCRAT headlines a story today about Majerus’ latest SLU squad with: “Majerus is comfortable with young roster.”
But after reading the piece, I’d say the hed was about as accurate as Majerus’ team was last Jan.10. So I compiled a list of Majerus’ unintentionally hilarious quotes about his team from the story.
“There’s a train wreck coming. It’s inevitable.”
“It’s going to be a bloodletting. They have no idea. I understand that, but they don’t, they’re young.”
“We’re just going to take our lumps.”
Yeah, Majerus interspersed some marginally positive comments into the piece, but for the most part, it appears he’s preparing his players for the worst.
