Re: Week #6 - Games of Interest

Fun day of basketball so far. Five ranked teams (Wichita State, Seton Hall, Notre Dame, Florida State, Florida) have already lost to unranked teams.

someone referred to Charleston as a “cupcake,” which is not at all accurate. The long lay-off might lead to a rough start, but a solid, pull away win would be ideal. What do you mean?

Reports have E.C. hoping to return on 12/16, which is the early part of that initial 4-6 week range. They’ve got Alabama on Wednesday and then over a week off until the next game. That’s boring for fans, but good for the team, as they have several guys who are banged up.
