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.

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