Yahoo – What was a slight nuisance Friday night became a greater hassle by the time Schmidt and his players awoke Saturday morning because the hotel’s backup generator had also failed. All other guests at the hotel had to be evacuated because it had no power, lights, heat, hot water and hot food, not exactly ideal conditions for the Bonnies to prepare for a road game.
O the life of a mid major basketball player. You think its all good: free education, celebrity statues on a small campus, and setting yourself up for a life of traveling and banging broads across Europe. Then something like this happens and you remember that you don’t really matter in life. No chance in hell this happens to a real basketball school. Here’s a rundown of what would happen at a traditional power:
North Carolina – Upon hearing their team was in a hotel with no power or water, a herd of tobacco farmers would hop in trucks with tubs of pasta (you got to carbo load before a big game), probably a shit ton of All Sport, and warm water for showers. Only the best for Roy Williams and crew.
Kansas – If one light bulb goes out, Bill Self probably sends out the Bat Signal to Jayhawk alums. Seeing as they love their basketball squad, Jayhawk fans are happy to hop on their tractors and brave the Rocky Mountains to bring their favorite team provisions.
Duke – Mikey the Rat stayed at Duke for this scenario and this scenario alone. Broken generators ain’t shit for this group of nerds. First mention of generator problems and the nerds go into their nerdery to build a machine capable of transporting everything necessary to the team’s survival. Here’s the kicker though once this machine has landed they turn it into a generator that powers the entire city. Say what you want about these cockbags who hate dead grandmas as much as they love basketball, their smart as shit and and can build such a device, they have the technology.
Miami (FL) – Sure they are not a traditional basketball power, but you know if Nevin Shapiro heard about a power outage where the team was staying he would be there with bells on. You know who else would be wearing bells, the strippers he brought with to keep HIS players warm. They’d show up and do the hottest Jingle Bell Rock since Mean Girls.
