Re: Rhody and A10 in the Top 25 Polls: 2017-18

#23 Michigan struggled in the first half against Maryland, trailing by as much as 14 and going to the break down 10. Interestingly, speaking of Creighton, they have Seton Hall and Providence on tap this week.

Re: Rhody and A10 in the Top 25 Polls: 2017-18

It’s the opposite. On a blind resume he would never pick Creighton. He is only picking them as a way not to pick URI. You can forgive other writers from other parts of the country for maybe being slow to come around or pushing their local agenda, but KMac doesn’t have any excuse.

Re: Rhody and A10 in the Top 25 Polls: 2017-18

Most people on this board have forgotten more about basketball since the season started than KMac has ever known, and even still, he knows enough that if URI played Creighton on a neutral court tomorrow and his life depended on his picking the winner, he would pick URI. Combined, these things make h...

Where we disagree is that I bro-hate UMass and real-hate PC, where blueman hates UMass more than PC. I then used making that distinction to explain just how much I actually do hate PC, and took the opportunity to post one of my all-time favorite movie clips to illustrate the point.

I wouldn't describe it as hope. I don't really care either way and I certainly don't expect to be ranked again this regular season. But it's wrong to suggest that if this team gets to 20-3, 21-3, or whatever, that they won't jump the half dozen or so teams currently between URI and the top-25.
