Dude these holier than thou, 3 paragraph soap box tirades where you position yourself as the Godfather of URI fandom is getting tired.

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

Once again, I really don't get the conspiracy theory here. KMac certainly wasn't alone in his no-vote for URI, as 2/3 of the writers in the field passed on us as well. While flawed in some areas, his logic isn't that far off. The A10 is a dumpster fire this year. Ranked behind the Mountain West AND...

Ok, I'm not bitching. It's just an "is what it is" post. URI and PC both played big games yesterday. Equal coverage possibly? Maybe side by side articles? No. PC gets a big headline with a big picture on the front page of the sports page. We get a smaller headline, no picture, at the botto...

My understanding was that he wouldn’t qualify this year for academic reasons. Possibly reclassify. Yes. I pretty sure I remember hearing the same thing. So there's still a good chance he could end up with us as a 2019 recruit. A multi-skilled, 6-7 wing guard in this era of positionless basketball i...

So, even if we win out, go 18-0, 29-3 , have a 24 game winning streak and are ranked around 10th (no, I am not saying all those things are going to happen), the best we can do is a 5 or 6 seed? That really sucks.

Can we dream of a 4 seed? Imagine being the favorite in both of our first 2 games? That's how important every game is. If we get a couple of losses, that's not happening, dropping to a 6,7 or 8. We are favored in every game the rest of the regular season. Yes, it will be difficult to go 18-0, but no...
