Apologies if this is redundant from other game posts. My feeling is that CB's notorious work routine through the first half of conference play caught up with this team. They've been moving like sloths in molasses. Maybe combined with some illness and general winter time blues. I know all teams get the latter 2 but I think CB is a real hard ass on conditioning later into the season than most. I just hope that, as has been the case, this will make these guys more ready than the rest at conference time.

Is it possible the AmEast is NOT as bad as everyone assumes?  hart, unh, bingo and even maine (in the 2nd 1/2) played some very good basketball. Maybe it is time to give some due. Maybe UA is not as good as we think or maybe the league is better then expected. In all our loses we got out played; need some talent to outplay a good team {which I still believe UA is.} Maybe time to give credit where credit due? I would NOT be shocked if even vt ended with 3 or 4 loses. UA, unh, umbc and even bingo & hart [on a good day] are capable of beating vt.

Right, in a moment of self reflection this thread did not age well...if we collectively think the AE is terrible, what does it say about us as we sit here at 2-3?

The conference is ranked 24th of 32... It sucks ! We have teams with an RPI of 250, 270, 302, 326, 332.

Just because we are not playing well does not mean the conference does not suck. In fact I would say the conference sucks more now that our own RPI is falling .

The AE is a terrible basketball conference. Plain and simple . The proof is in the rankings.

Hartford has just been schizophrenic this year. They have some really bad losses but respectable wins against Rutgers and Miami of Ohio.

 

The middle of the conference a little more respectable than it has in the past. As you said, good enough beat anyone on a given night and certainly good enough to beat us the way we're playing now. Vermont will be interesting. They've opened with 3 of 4 conference games at home and their lone road game was UMass - Lowell.
