Troy State 253, DeVry 141 | Pretty Good, Episode 12

  • Published: 13 March 2017
  • In 1992, Troy State and DeVry (yup, that DeVry, the one from the commercials) were scheduled to play a game of basketball. What they actually played was part relay race, part word problem that resulted in the highest-scoring men's basketball game ever.

    Oh, and the score on record is totally wrong.

                  Dear Jon Bois, I love your videos. Some of my favorite videos of all time are your chart party vids. However, please work on your audio editing. I have to crank my volume to hear you talk, and you then always make my ears bleed with your music and sound effects. (TLDR: Voice Up, Music/SFX down)

                                                      I swear, I've watched through the Pretty Good series about 10 times in the past three months. The presentation and information both transfix me. The music is perfect. To illuminate this, I'm listening currently to the full 18+ minute version of Världens sista låt. The first time I watched this back in July, I replayed the last few minutes of the video again and again because of that song. Its generally absurd how much I enjoy your content Jon. Thanks for it. You'd be a helluva dude to chat with someday.

                                                        There was a soccer game in the Argentine league in 1999 which ended 7 to 5. From a soccer point of view that's crazy. And one of the two teams that played that game, the very next year, played a game that ended 6 to 6.
