Adjective SURVIVOR! Tom Crean Edition

In the first of many attempts to keep ourselves entertained as we slog through the Dead Times, we're going to play Adjective SURVIVOR!


This is how it works:

We start with a person, or team, or referee, or noun. We'll give you a list of ten adjectives that (arguably) describe that person, or team, or referee, or noun. Each Thursday, we'll vote one of those descriptors off the island, until we arrive at the preferred adjective for said person / team / ref / noun. Henceforth, any reference to person / team / ref / noun on Anonymous Eagle will be preceded by that adjective.

Confused? Here's an example: say the person we're trying to describe is Craig Counsell. (I'm going with a person unaffiliated with college basketball so we don't eliminate a potential target.) So, we'd give you ten adjectives to describe Craig Counsell, and, each week, you vote for your least favorite until we arrive at the chosen adjective. If, say, the last adjective standing was "Impish," then, going forward, anytime Craig Counsell is mentioned on the blog, it would be: "Impish Craig Counsell."

Got it? Good.

The first target is former Marquette coach Tom Crean. The ten adjectives are in the poll below. Remember: you're voting for your LEAST favorite.

(Note: If you like Adjective SURVIVOR!, show some love to the guy who thought of it, your boy KL. If, on the other hand, you hate Adjective SURVIVOR!, this was totally Mr. Kensington's idea.)
