Hasheem Wallpaper’s days are numbered it appears!
You may remember Confusingous’ plee to Hasheem Thabeet a few days back. You remember that he had Hasheem’s best interest at heart.
It seems that Hasheem does not have Confusingous’ best interest at heart. As reported yesterday, it appears he will forgo his senior year and test the waters of the NBA Draft.
As he is only in the process of interviewing agents, his picture is still on the desktop. But, Our Resident Seer has his finger on the trigger. When he signs on the dotted line, Frank Zappa goes back up!
Confusingous wants Hasheem Thabeet to stay in school. Of course, there are selfish reasons. The main one being that him being on the court guarentees them a spot in the NCAA tournament (possible sanctions aside). But, Confusingous thinks he needs to.
His offense has improved remarkably since he arrived at Storrs a few years back. But it still needs work. He needs to develop an instinct for getting to the rim fast. He needs to develop a face-to-basket game. While he plays like a ten foot monster on the defensive end, he shrinks to a 6 foot guard on the offensive end.
One more year will turn a draft question mark into an exclamation point. Confusingous is aware of the challenging home situation that Hasheem faces, and would not blame him for taking the money to improve his family’s life. However, one year at school could make the difference between first round bust and NBA All-Star.
So, while Hasheem mulls over his tough decision, Confusingous has started a vigil. His Windows background will be an image of Hasheem. If Hasheem stays, it will remain so throughout the 2009-10 College Basketball season.
So, Hasheem, some food for thought.
Hasheem, this will be on Confusingous’ desktop as long as you are eligible to play for UConn! Sleep on it! (image – femalefan.com)
What does he have waiting for him? Well, beyond the obvious questions on recruiting tactics, Fox Sports feels he has a top 15 program while Sports Illustrated is fairly more optimistic calling it a top 5 team.
Regardless, it’s good to have the coach returning to the program he helped build.
Ever been close to a dream being realized?
Confusingous is right there. First, he will be attending the Final Four this weekend and see his Huskies go for a 3rd National Championship. So one dream nears realization.
However, the location, Detroit, allows for the realization of a second dream.
Our Resident Seer is obsessed with Tim Hortons. Could it be that Tim Horton was a former Ranger? Could it be that it serves coffee and donuts? Could it be all of the above? Regardless, Detroit has 100’s of these bad boys in and around it’s vicinity. There is like 50 of them in Windsor!
So close to a dream. So close.
Only time will tell. But, Confusingous predicts three Big East teams will join him in Detroit for the Final Four. UConn, Lousiville and ‘Nova. UNC will spoil the Big East lovefest with a quarterfinal defeat of Syracuse.
The Seer has spoken.
Confusingous is tired. Confusingous is cranky. Confusingous stayed up to watch a six overtime loss by his team last night. It’s time to remember when things went better for the Huskies -
Who would have thought? Not too long ago these two teams were ranked at the bottom (literally) of Division I-A rankings. And tomorrow, January 3, 2009, these schools will be playing in a bowl game!
The teams both accepted the invitation to play in the International Bowl which will be held in Toronto at The Rogers Centre. Connecticut will be playing in it’s 3rd bowl game while Buffalo will be playing in it’s first (although this is the 2nd invitation for the school).

Yes, it’s the State University of New Jersey. Yes. Confusingous is from New Jersey and lives there. However, that does not mean he needs to like Rutgers.
