No question, reef. Makes FT's, plays defense like he means it, and makes big shots.

Re: Week #3 - Games of Interest.

Not looking like the A10 will end up anywhere near the 8th or so ranked conference they've been for the last few years. That translates into 2 bids at most. We will need to either win the regular season title or the conference tourney. And even winning the regular season might not guarantee anything.

Re: How many games will the football team win in 2017?

Well since he's coming back [they weren't going to fire him with 2 years left on his contract] he's got one more shot.

With a senior laden team and Lawson [hopefully] back, if they can't win 5 or 6 games next year, he's got to go then.
