Re: 2/16 | St.Bonaventure Bonnies | 7PM (ESPN2)

Only time the Bonnies beat Rhody in 5 years was when EC was injured and Hassan was playing through being hurt/injured. Weird game, they snuck up on URI at the end and the game was over. IDK why A10 talk and all these Bonnie fans consider themselves in the same breath as the Keaney Blue. https://twi...

Re: 2017-18 Bracketology

Of note is SBU is in the first four out. I don't think we were at this point a year ago. It looks like SBU does have a chance to play itself into an at large.

Re: THT EARLY LINE URI VS UMASS

An 18 point favorite, and we easily could have lost that game. 18 point is in prohibitive favorite territory, no way was it even supposed to be close and it was flip a coin for a loss in the final minutes. 15 points down in the 2nd half when you are favored by 18 is a 33 point spread so sugar coat ...

The biggest thing for us is to take care of each game in front of us. The thing that made us so nervous last year is that we had 1 bad loss at home, and another atrocious loss at home. If we can avoid bad losses altogether and avoid losses at home, we should be able to dance.

I personally do not think this class means anything in terms of Hurley staying. I do however think it now pushes Cox much closer to being a serious option to replace Hurley when he ultimately moves on.

If anyone could keep this class, and guys currently on the team from leaving IMO it'd be Cox.
