If you have no clue of what you are speaking of dont bother replying.



Then please explain the reason for the creampuff teams they play before getting to the Big East teams.

Last year they were 21-14 overall, but just 9-9 in the Big East.

9-9 in a conference that sent 7 or 8 teams to the tournament is not all that bad. I recall a couple of those losses were pretty close and could have made the difference in an NCAA and a NIT bid. Pretty much every team has an easy schedule to help tune up for the games in January. Go ahead check out #1 North Carolina's schedule. UC Santa Barbara, N. Carolina Asheville, Evansville, Oral Roberts, etc. are not your typical top 25 teams>

They're on ESPN now and Richmond is beating them, handily, I might add. I hope that Devendorf fiasco doesn't effect the season.

handily???? Please they are down 7 to a pretty good team only because SU is not getting out on the shooters. Hopefully they get their defense together in the second.

RG, we've butted heads in baseball (You-Birds, Me-Yanks), football (You-NYG, Me-Bills...and you're winning that one). I didn't know you followed NCAA BB too! I don't follow NHL or NASCAR.
Oh, and SU is back up. ;\) I need a smile after MNF last night.

They all played well. I just hope they do a better job on 3-pt defense in future games.
