Re: Attendance- Perspective

The fact that there was a full set of cheerleaders, ramettes and band members tells me there were still a lot of kids here. Watch on Thursday. There might be 6 cheerleaders and 3 ramettes and we might here a drum solo, or more likely, the SK high school band. They have to stay for games before brea...

That was a good team we played tonight. Don't forget they were missing their best player. We can't get snobby and think we are better than all these "Mid-Major" teams. Langevin was clearly the hero. He played great down the stretch. Really need Terrell to assert himself throughout the gam...
