I'm soooo happy. I am already celebrating my co-title of being "THE BIGGEST LOOSER".

The results so far have been a big present to the fans from a hard working group of players and coaches.
Replacing Hass and KI, plus the preseason injury to Cyril, I thought were a big obstacle to a twenty win season.
Boy, I am happy I was wrong.

Who would've guessed that Berry would be averaging nearly 10 pts a game at this stage of the season.

And that's probably averaging less than 20 minutes per game.

With the URI record at 19-3 and seven games remaining, 41 participants (out of original 87) remain standing in the contest though some are on shaky ground. Here are the combos of overall record and conference record that still have a shot, with number of participants in that situation in parenthesis:

1. 26-3, 16-2 (1)
2. 25-4, 16-2 (1)
3. 24-5, 16-2 (2)
4. 23-6, 15-3 (7)
5. 22-7, 14-4 (21)
6. 21-8, 13-5 (6)
7. 20-9, 12-6 (1)
8. 19-10, 12-6 (2)

I must never have filed my prediction. I was in around the 22-7/21-8 mark. I predicted they'd be 8-3 non conf and either 13-5 or 14-4 in conference. Perhaps I couldn't decide and never entered it. I figured they'd go undefeated at home, lose at Dayton, VCU, SBU, and one or two others. At this point I hope I'm wrong. I can't see them losing another home game (though Dayton and Davidson will both be a challenge and Richmond won't be a walkover especially they way they are playing and it's an 8:30 pm game, so I don't expect a large crowd). SBU and Davidson on the road will definitely be our toughest remaining games. The Reilly Center at SBU is going to be insane a week from Friday and the crowd at Davidson will be fired up even if we aren't 17-0 when we get there, but especially if we are.

With the URI win over Richmond, the Rams' record moves to 21-3. Many of those in the 20-9 cluster had already been eliminated due to mismatch with OOC record prediction, but the win caused the official elimination of the one left standing in the 20-9 cluster, URIFIJI.

It's nice that more people have been eliminated by predicting a worse record than we have.....and that the first person has been eliminated now for predicting too many wins....
