  1. 2018 Bracket Challange

    Lest I remind you guys that our Danes beat UMBC 83-39 this season lol. Shows you how much thats worth.
  2. 2018 Bracket Challange

    This build up of a lead reminds me of UA/UCONN in 2006 but then we ran out of gas and UConn did have better offense than UVA does so UMBC has a chance. UA was up 12 with 11:20ish to go
  3. 2018 Bracket Challange

    Hate to be a homer, but I have always dreamed of UA being the 1st 16 seed to beat a 1 seed. Would rather not have another AE team do it even though it would give the conference great PR.
  4. 2018 Bracket Challange

    UB taking it to Arizona. They are a 13 seed. People were saying that if Vermont had won AE tourney, they may have been a 13. No way UVM is in same league as UB. UB should have been 11ish.
  5. I agree UA does not get the respect they deserve. We are not a "blue blood program" so people think we are a Loyola from 2012, flash in pan, will settle back to second tier once some solid guys graduate. We have been a solid program since 2007 but it's true we blew some chances in quarterfinal games, lost to Hartford in AE tourney, etc. We don't get the HS all-americans the blue bloods get (we do get top Indian players), so give Marr the credit for teaching these kids how to improve their game. We can shut all the nay-sayers up by winning a title. This is the year, with Fields, JD, Reh, McClancy graduating, we will be ok next year, but probably not championship caliber.
  6. They have Mackay back after he missed all last season. They haven't played anyone who is considered a top 20 team, in fact the only top conference team they play is UVA in a month. Not a challenging schedule except they played 6 straight on the road. I am glad we have the week off. Bumps and bruises can heal, the high of winning can wear off. Would have been worried if we played them Tuesday for example. Just need to start off better, not give Coach more gray hair with 4th quarter come backs.
  7. If we have to nit-pick, our man-up is horrendous. Most games we score at will with 6 on 6, but when we have the extra man, we can't get a shot on goal. That 6 on 4 we had today was painful to watch. Maryland in a basic box of 4 corner guys and we pass around like it's a game of catch. Need to work on it before playoffs.
  8. From what I saw, JD definitely saw the ball better in 2nd half and some of the shots were much easier to handle (kinda like the shots we were taking in 1st half). TD figured out Shockey and was able to get clean pickups. The whole team hustled better on ground balls in 2nd half. Tehoka was man-handled all game but he is big boy and needs to push back. Surprised Justin Reh has been quiet most of season. NO letdown vs UVM!!
  9. Lol. I too was guilty of that and almost turned it off at 8-3.
  10. Was gonna say that hurts our RPI if Cuse loses but I think our win today helps just a tad.😁
  11. TD, Fields, Paterson, Mc Clancy all deserve gold stars but in my opinion JD gets MVP of game for shutting them down in 2nd half. Without his stops, they get to at least 12 or 13 and we run out of time.
  12. Oh crap, was so involved in lax game I totally forgot about AE final. Umbc with the big upset in Patrick.
  13. Getting too old for this. Thought I would need a defibrillator that last 2 min. Way to go guys. Please, for my health, show up in the 1st quarter next time.
  14. I don't believe what I just saw!
  15. Great GB by Fields, our 1st team All-American!!!!
