Coolest SI cover ever. Dougie McBuckets doing WORK. Getting compared to Larry Legend isn’t a bad way to end your college career I suppose?
Been trying to watch as many Creighton games as possible this year to catch McDermott in action and it’s absolutely astounding how good this dude is at scoring. Makes no sense just looking at him. Guy defines the words doofus and goober. Wears a t-shirt under his jersey, no not like one of those new high-tech Nike sleeve things, a straight up T-shirt with basically 3/4 length sleeves flopping all over the place.
Then he steps on the court and lights it the fuck up better than anyone in the country. 26.5 points a game. 7th in all-time scoring and hands down player of the year winner. They don’t call him Dougie McBuckets for nothing. Probably took those 2 cheerleaders back to his place immediately following that shoot, cooked them a fantastic Italian dinner, got to know them for 3 hours then kissed them on the cheek goodnight like an absolute fucking gentleman.
