  1. Athletic Budget

    So we actually made money in 2016? I thought our level of program always lost money. That's great news!
  2. Is Will Brown done for?

    I got to think this helps AE recruits just slightly across the board. Makes the whole conference look good.
  3. UMBC

    Whoever runs UMBC's twitter is good. I lol'ed. http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/22800525/umbc-epic-ncaa-tournament-upset-eyes-twitter-handle
  4. UMBC

    This. If him winning the AE in 2 years wasn't enough impetus, him setting history as the first team to beat a #1 will have people stalking him at home. Dude is good as gone from UMBC unless he is happy there like Brown is at UA and doesn't care about other opportunities (per se).
  5. Is Will Brown done for?

    I agree that UMBC has stolen a LOT of our thunder...but we still have a MUCH MUCH better history of excellence than them. It's not even close. They are the Cinderella right now...we'll see how the rest of this decade goes for them.
  6. Is Will Brown done for?

    I think you're overreacting. Brown is still one of the top 3 coaches in the AE IMO (up there with Becker and Odom). He just got stuck with a bum (at least this year) in Nichols who COMPLETELY derailed UA's season with his petulance and other flaws (I don't need to beat that dead horse anymore). We all knew coming into the year that this team would go where Nichols took it. And he took us nowhere. This is his team for better or worse and he didn't lead it. If he comes back next year and plays like he did in 2016-2017, we'll be fine. If he lays another egg like he did this year...Brown will retool with the likes of Healy, Rizzuto, etc. the follow year. Our future bigs (Hanks, Lulka, whoever else they bring in) look fine...as do our guards (Cremo for one more year, Healy, Rizzuto). And there is rumor that we're recruiting Cremo's heir apparent. Future is bright. Definitely not doom and gloom. We'll be fine. This year wasn't our year. It was UMBC's. It is what it is.
  7. 2018 Bracket Challange

    For what it's worth, this just proved that teams like us can catch lightening in a bottle and win. This will happen for us one day.
  8. 2018 Bracket Challange

    I'm very happy for UMBC fans. Good for them. Lyles is amazing.
  9. 2018 Bracket Challange

    Dudes...their gonna do it. Up BIG.
  10. 2018 Bracket Challange

    WOW. UMBC is playing loose and just letting the game come to them.
  11. 2018 Bracket Challange

    As long as it's not Vermont, SBU or Bing, I'm fine with it. I have nothing against the other AE schools lol.
  12. 2018 Bracket Challange

    That west bracket is garbage. I regret picking Cincinnati now...have no faith in anyone up there. Edit: might as well throw in the towel. I'll never win this damn thing lol.
  13. 2018 Bracket Challange

    If Cinci loses it'll be the end of my bracket. I have them winning the whole thing and they are neck and neck with 10 minutes left. Uh oh! EDIT: Blew their doors off in 6 minutes. Cinci will advance. My bracket is still a mess...Wichita is about to get bounced.
