Two Things:

1) If you are posting links, please hit in the button next to the spell check.  Click that button, paste link.  like this for Ziik's link:

2) For you GW fans of the underdogs, after taking down UCLA in Pauley Pavilion, Monmouth puts the axe to NOTRE DAME too.  How's that for a 2 pack of mini-major vs power schools???  Monmouth would play Dayton if they can beat Iowa tonight.

Man, that was a poorly written preview and not even very well researched.  But keep comparing us to Army, Vols fan.

There's a spel chck button? And the chain link is the link button? Damn, thanks Dude. I keep forgetting useful information, and recall only trivia

Haha, yes Ziik.

Your link was well worth reading imo. E.g. learning Tenn has a 6'5 (avg) height Frontcourt.  I look forward to a future when we also list players by wingspan/Reach and have a fact check button next to the ABC button.

With the rate of technological advance these days the latter might actually arrive before the former.

Better to be underdog.

Tough task,given their 3 point shooting,but hope we can off.

First real test for us outside of the friendly confines of The Smith.

Neutral site matchup vs an athletic, but lower tier SEC school.  SI has them finishing 12th in the SEC. 

Rick Barnes inherits a very short team with the same crop always at UT of athletic, physical talent, dubious hoops skils, that has struggled in beating some pretty bad teams to date.  Hiring Rick Barnes is also akin to hiring Paul Hewitt at Mason after a long decade of slow decline at a better bigger program.  Rarely works out well for a highly established, declining coach moving down a program.  (see also, Tom Penders to GW.... for a contrarian view see Tom Penders to Houston)


AAU: BABC Dan Sullivan@dtsull @KevinMarfo received an offer from UT-Chattanooga and BU, to go along with interest from George Washington, URI, DePaul, Xavier, Miami OH Verbal Commits


"How one firing set off a wacky chain reaction" (SI) 15. May 15:Hewitt lands a huge recruit in 6-8 Philadelphian Erik Copes, who's ranked No. 57 overall in the Class of 2011 and could see instant playing time at George
