Excellent chance to play spoiler with a young and thin team. Would hurt ETSU much more than us losing this year considering the circumstances. Hard to say spoiler so early in the year but that's what this would be.

This is clearly a spoiler role for the Owls. We have some talent, and some players that can give the Bucs some trouble. We will just need an outstanding effort by all involved to take this one home. I would love to see Mitchell play in this one, even if only for a few minutes. Don't know where he has on his rehab process, but we are going to need him come January, so if he could return now, that would give him about 2 weeks to get into real game shape where he could start to really contribute.

It'll be tight for awhile. We're hurting a little with Jocolby Davis and Seth Coy both out.

A lot of factors have to go right for Kennesaw to keep this one close. Fortunately for us it is at home which gives us a puncher's chance. ETSU is playing great basketball right now....

The only way the Owls win this game is if ETSU comes out in their "I don't give a damn" mentality and even then you're hanging onto a wing and a prayer.

Astute analysis Gold...thanks for more of your intelligence on display. You can make a point without being a jerk. There are plenty of times when an underdog comes in a plays a great game and beats a better team. We all realize that right now ETSU is the better team, but it doesn't mean that in order for us to win you have to hand it to us.
You continue to try and pick fights ... that will come back to bite you. Perhaps as soon as next year when Tiggs and Pigram are gone...not to mention Davis and Hamlin. Enjoy your bravado while you can. We are still a work in progress and we realize that.

You mean when Tubbs takes over? I can remember a year and a half ago, before I got a hold of you, your whole online fan base thought you were ready to win regular season championships.

This game scares me (for the reason gold stated--I don't give a damn teams are dangerous). Even though we are playing at a high level--the best we've played since 03-04--I worry about overconfidence and complacency. We're doing the things we have not the last couple of years: playing defense, rebounding, and moving the ball. Returning to former ways could allow KSU to smell blood. Smith, Pigram, and Tiggs are fulfilling lofty expectations, but are also playing too many minutes.
In short, we have a lot to lose, while KSU has relatively less to lose and they are at home. A loss for us would not be devastating, but it would as Matthew Wilder said, "...break our stride". Moreover, Coach Ingle is crafty. It's cliche and perhaps meaningless, but good teams get beat all of the time in college basketball.
If we play with the same intensity and soundness that we have the last 4 games, I think we will wear down KSU. I am not sure of the final score, but I'll be satisfied as long as we have more points when the final horn goes off.
Best of luck whatever the outcome.

I watched them on A-sun tv the other night and I am just not impressed.
