Enough negativity.  We haven't seen the predictions for THE WOMAN'S team, but my guess is they will be expected to do much better.

Pre-season embarrassment once again. Eventually... Some year has to be our year right?

I know preseason predictions mean nothing, but seems like nobody thinks much of us this year. 

And being ranked lower than ecu really hurts.

It's really just depressing seeing all the present and past A-10 members in the top 50. I do think we can finish in the top 5 of our conference though.

Yup. If we're worthy, we'll win this crappy conference and turn around the program. I hope Price is ready to figure this out. I think he can, but I'm not sure if he'll make the choice to become the total coach yet. That will include recruiting big men and coaching defense. This season will be interesting to see if he's ready to make the leap yet.

Who cares how many bids the conference gets?  If we don't win it doesn't matter.  If we go win, we can dance.  Simple as that.  I am so tired of people complaining about our crappy conference when we have been a dumpster fire for a decade.  WE ARE PART OF THE REASON IT HAS SUCKED. 


Let's go win damnit.  Once we win 20 plus games and miss an atlarge bid because of the conference then and only then can we complain.
