Luke Harangody Is Habanero Weak Sauce

Luke Harangody is a senior who is sitting on the bench with a bone bruise in a sweater vest while his team fights for its postseason life. A sweater vest, people. A swest.

We’ve been hearing about how great this guy is from the east coast media for four years. And now, at the pinnacle of that four-year career, the Notre Dame forward isn’t even playing. Because he has a bruise.

Jon Brockman is a member of the Sacramento Kings these days, but last year, as a senior at Washington, he was supposedly a poor man’s Luke Harangody. You know, because he’s shorter than Harangody. Or doesn’t have red enough hair. Or something stupid like that.

All I know is, Brockman spent his entire career as a living, breathing bone bruise. And he didn’t miss important games because of it. If something wasn’t broken, bruised, sprained, or tweaked, then something was wrong with Jon Brockman. Maybe he wasn’t playing hard enough or something. Took a day off.

Hell, Brockman was so badass that we come to find out a year later that he played his entire senior season with a broken hip. Not a bone bruise. A broken hip. A man’s injury.

You’re probably wondering what the point of this rant is. The point is, I’m sick of the east coast bias towards guys like Brockman, who couldn’t catch a break (no pun intended) in four years because he played out west.

Instead, we have to hear about Luke Harangody, the Erik Bedard of the NCAA. Fragile enough to pull himself down the stretch, but supposedly a tough guy with a lot of heart. All because he’s an east coast guy. Because he plays in the Big East. Because he plays for All-American White Boy U. Because he’s a supposed hard worker.

Right. Whatever.

Your poster child is sitting there in street clothes while his teammates try to atone for his absence. That’s weak, and everyone knows it.

Luke Harangody is weak sauce. Habanero weak sauce.

  1. Give this guy a break. It might be good strategy to rest him now and play him later. ND beat UConn no problemo today.

  2. the broken hip makes his epic rebound/fall during the NCAA tourney that much more amazing. Brockman is the kind of hardworkin guy that deserves the fame and money and respect. You think someone like MJ would sit out huge games, or even regular games for that matter, because of a bruise? I doubt it.

  3. Maybe it’s me, but I don’t like articles that beat down on others for no good reason. Both this article and the one on Ernie Kent suck. Ernie Kent may suck this season, but I don’t know if UO can get anyone of his caliber to replace him. UO ain’t some bball Mecca, good luck on Belotti finding someone.

  4. It’s not just east coast bias it is Notre Dame bias. Everytime some white player has a decent season at Notre Dame they are deemed the second coming by the media. See Brady Quinn, Rick Mirer, . If Harangody played for UNC he would be roasted alive in the media for being a pussy. This is the prime reason I don’t want the Seahawks to draft Clausen. He has “Only Notre Dame Good” written all over him.

    BTW-I am Irish Catholic.

  5. Speaking of tough..Jason Terry broke his orbital bone in the 3rd quarter of the Mavs game yesterday, returned 3 minutes later, played the entire 4th qtr and scored 26 points in a close win for his team. 206 baby!!

  6. A bone bruise isn’t just a bruise. For a Husky homer you must not have had a great education there. Or any education there.
