What do we know about them?  Will this be a stiff test?

I think itís likely that we drop this game. Our group is young an inexperienced and may take some time to gel.

If we are 0-2, we could be in some trouble regarding the NCAA's.

Sanford is capable of winning this game. Fans need to show up and make BWA a very hostile environment.  Else, don't complain about home losses to quality teams.

These first 3 games will be tough until we at least get Dustin Thomas back. He doesnt do much, but he does provide at least one more body and depth on the already shallow front line.

Samford can win. Especially if we play like we did in the last exhibition game.

However, do not expect us to lose

Projected to win their conference and bring back their top 6 players (or something like that). We have a short bench tonight. Combine these factors and we just need to get a win here. This isnít a cupcake.

I will not be happy if we drop this game. Samford? Really?

I don't care about their experience, transfers, or whatever. If they come into BWA and beat us with our returning guards and talent it will be a bad start to the season, resulting in low attendance and questions of MA's future.

We DO NOT need to lose this game. Period.

Agreed.

But they are the type of team that ruins opening night for high-major programs experiencing things like a short bench and/or injuries. Our schedule is really tough this year, so we canít afford to lose to Samford even though they are a really good low-major.

Losing to Samford would be disappointing, but this is like a 6/11 matchup in the tournament come March.  The same 6/11 matchup that if the team they were playing wasn't named Arkansas you might pick as an upset on your bracket.  I think Arkansas wins tonight as long as they can control the tempo,  and make their free throws. A win tonight will look when March comes around.  Definitely need to win 1 of the first 2 though.

Glad to see that no one here is looking past this team. The amazing thing is, of all the non-con teams we play this year, Samford had the second worst RPI at 170. Going to be a lot of tough games before conference play.

Lol. I used to be on faculty there. We were on TV maybe once or twice a year, and I wish I had $$ for every time the media personality called us Sanford, Stamford, or Stanford. We really didn't mind being confused with Stanford and wished that our endowment was confused with theirs.

A loss in game 1 to anybody is a bad start.  But really?  Game 1 against a team that has a shot to win their conference is a referendum on MA's future.  Good lord.

MA needs to get off to a good start or it will affect attitudes going into a season. The attendance/anger last year was enough for some to question his future, and he thankfully got on a late season roll. A loss to SAMFORD would not help his cause.

That being said, I think we win by 10+.

Iím so tired of hearing this team has to gel because of new pieces. We literally have 2 new players on the court to start the year out. I am worried though because of having three of our players out.

Possibly, but Samford has only made 2 NCAA Tournament appearances in their program history.  Those were in 1999 and 2000.  They have been a 13 and 14 seed.  Lost in first round both times.  So being compared to a 11 seed would be all-time great status for them

Well, I thought it might be a tough game, too. What was I thinking!  This is the longest, most athletic team MA has had here, and we've got Macon, and they don't.  Impressive so far, especially with three guys not available.

Well, it was a bold prediction.  Not close to being right.  I'm now officially excited about this year.  Samford is supposed to be pretty good, but it looks like men against boys out there.  Anderson has got some nice pieces this year, might be his best team ever.
