    I’m thinking more of the 16-20 range

    We are spoiled when we call a loss to Ohio State a humiliating loss. Gardner Webb was a humiliating loss, this was not.

      Totally agree! True that we did not play our best basketball but Ohio St. & UCLA both played their best games. Need to give them some credit rather than calling them humiliating or embarrassing loses.

      Ohio State has lost to UT-Arlington and Louisiana Lafayette. UCLA has lost to Monmouth. How does our losses to these teams look now?

    Funny that you would post a picture of Mulder. I was just telling my colleague that Mulder has a ugly shot and has yet to make jack. I thought we recruited him to come off the bench for some quick rain. There are a lot of things not going by the script this season. We will get right by tourney time. We are about right where I thought we would be in the polls. Funny to see Puke in front of us in coaches poll.
