    Yes, most "experts" picked Auburn ahead of us, even after the FBI story broke and it became clear some of their top players would be ineligible.

  • Barry is a very good D2 school they were 23-7 last year.  Our guys struggled at times last week against a weaker D2 school.  I'm not saying Barry would have come to BWA and won but it would have been a possibility, and a much closer game.

    Funny you say that. Barry lost two of it's top three scorers and another starter. Central Oklahoma returns it's top 3 scorers from last year, a team that lost to the eventual D2 National Champion by 6. So Central is not what I would call a weak D2 school. They may be inconsistent but they showed they can get up to play against top competition and they return all 5 starters from that team and one of their top bench players.

  • We didn't exactly light it up last week. I'm not ready to point and laugh at anybody. Syracuse lost to some scrub exhibition team a few years ago and I think made a deep run in the tourney. Exhibition means just that.

    I didn't call it weak, I called it weaker, meaning not as strong as Barry.  Barry's record last year was 23-7.  Central was 17-12.  Barry went to the post season and was 1-1.  Central did not make the tourney.  Regardless of who is coming back or not this year on either team, Barry historically is a stronger program.  Main point was we should not throw stones.

    Is last years team playing or this years team? As I said Central brings more starters back, more scoring, and played in the toughest conference and region in D2. I can recite records as well but it doesnít make it true.

    I was part of a team/staff that beat Michigan State University in an exhibition. Beat them OT back in 07.

    Iím in agreeance that exhibition games mean absolutely nothing.

  • As someone already said, Syracuse lost an exhibition and then went to the Final Four. So I don't read too much into them.
