Re: I'm Back! Sort Of.

Hey Rod, we missed you buddy. I am very happy to hear that you are home. Please don't look for a replay of the LASALLE game to watch because it might upset you too much. i don't think any Rhody fans should see that again. Yeah, at least you can be more comfortable and undisturbed by hospital routine...

THE EARLY LINE URI vs UMASS

Well the line is about the same as it was for the LASALLE debacle URI - 12. At this point in
the season I wouldn't put money down on URI if the line was a PICK''EM. If this team wants any
chance at a successful season going forward they have to put forth a convincing win on Sunday.

Hey Rod, we are expecting you back on here very soon. Hope your current health concerns

Re: Game 15: Dayton Friday Jan 6 @ 7pm ESPN2 University of Dayton Arena

let me say that this Dayton team is not as talented or as cohesive as last year's team.

The current URI roster is more talented and if they play well and play loose t...

Re: THE EARLY LINE URI vs DAYTON

The Rams play well at the UD Arena. URI has a slight size and strength advantage and
Charles Cooke may or may not play. If Cooke doesn't play, URI should have a back court
advantage and depth advantage too. Take care of the ball, make some free throws and
shoot reasonably well and they win.

I hope so because they just beat GW and if URI is that much better than GW and St. Joes maybe they can sweep through most of the A10. I was glad to see Richmond...
