Maybe USI’s men’s basketball team should be, or at least the student managers who pack the team’s uniforms for a road trip should be. So far this season the Eagles are 0-3 wearing their blue road uniforms. Play-by-play radio announcer Dan Egierski pointed out before the game at Wisconsin-Parkside tipped off on Thursday night that maybe coach Rodney Watson isn’t superstitious. But maybe now he is after his team lost to Parkside.
“We have to get rid of those,” he said, only half-jokingly, when I asked him about those losses in blue. “I’ll tell you what — when those managers pulled out the blue uniforms I should have told them, ‘You need to check with me first before you pack those.’ ”
Then he laughed.
I’ll bet USI is wearing its red road unis on Saturday.
