Definitely with girt.
I had a game last night in Iba that I thought made my point pretty well. Was playing a much inferior team, went down seven midway through the first half. Went on a big run, took a 12-point lead into the break and ended up winning by 21.
As it stands, that game seems pretty normal. Have a few missed shots in a row, get a deficit, but, as the better team, eventually start getting hot, outscore them by 19 in an eight minute stretch, and then cruise through the rest of the game, building the lead much more slowly from 12 to 21.
If that seven-point deficit is there at the end of the half instead of the under eight timeout, and the run is at the beginning of the second half instead of the first, it pops out in memory as one of those "tale of two halves" things. My suspicion is that this happens all the time and that we just notice it most often when it breaks along half boundaries.
Same thing happened to me today in Crum. Down 2 at the under eight, go on a run, up 19 at the half. Happens all the time. Nobody notices.
it really seems to me like you guys are arguing different points, arguing against something we are not saying. its like you are saying you disagree with me and/or mully but nothing you actually say, except that you disagree, suggests you disagree.
or maybe im missing mully's point. seems to me hes saying, look at all these come backs, these tale of two halves games. should there be so many? has anything changed to create more? and im saying yeah, feedback was introduced, that creates more.
neither of us (correct me if im wrong, mully) are saying these things dont happen or shouldnt happen. maybe you could help me out by making it a little more clear exactly what you guys take exception to, because in of the 5 or so posts that seem to suggest they disagree, i cant find anything (outside the statement as such) that actually disagrees, or makes an alternative point, or points out anything really, that is at odds with what i am saying. i cant tell if i am reading you guys wrong or the reverse, or what!
