RE: Let me be the first to recommend...
All it takes is one team for Kennesaw to become a big name in the Atlanta Market. We put together one NCAA tournament appearance within the first 2-3 years of our eligibility, and the university will explode. Right now Kennesaw fans are looking for confirmation that we are a legitimate program. Until we are out of the grace period and playing for a chance to advance to the NCAA tournament I can't say that we are. Going .500 or better this year after such a disaster of a start would be great for our program.

We are setting ourselves up for a big time run our first year of eligibility. We will have an experienced, deep and talented team in two years. The fortunate part for us is that our administration and our fans (for the most part) have the patience and longterm vision that is required to build a Division I program. ETSU already has a great program, but many of their fans (cough....Kevster, Goldfinger....) continue to try and bury their head in the sand concerning Kennesaw State's potential and progress.

Oh yes, Kennesaw's progress. I almost forgot:

2006: 12-17
2007: 13 - 18 (Thank heavens for Newberry & St. Peters)
2008 (to date): 5 - 15

Let's say they break even in the rest of their games (I know, but I'm trying to give them a break here). That would leave them at 10-20 for 2008.

I take it all back. I had no idea Kennesaw was making such progress.

Oh poor kevster....everything can't be measured in wins and losses. You will see :) ... and I know that you are getting nervous about that bet we made. I am creating an "I love Tony Ingle" avatar for you to use as we speak. It is going to be beautiful!!!

I know you are. Anyone who would suggest that Kennesaw is not carrying their own weight in the ASun is clearly in a position of fear. We are by no means the dominant school in the conference in athletics, but we are easily carrying our own weight. We have already won multiple championships in our first two years in the league, and almost all of our sport programs are on the rise. Men's basketball despite a tough year is in the midst of its greatest recruiting year of all time. We have a Texas Tech transfer sitting out this year, have signed a 6'11" center that at one time was pursued by some very high major schools, signed a 6'6" GF in Markeith Cummings that will be the best freshman in the conference next year, and a scoring PG that is averaging over 20 points per game while playing against Atlanta High School competition.

So yes, whether you admit it or not, I think there is some fear from you Kevster regarding Kennesaw. We are not better than you at this point in time as a program, that is clear, but we have a bright future. Your bravado doesn't fool me :)

Ah, once again you have moved beneath the surface to totally understand my underlying fears. It seems I have been "outted."

It seems so :)

Always fun bantering with you Kevster. I sure hope I that I win the wager that we made, because I am sure that you are creative enough to come up with something incredibly embarrassing for a Kennesaw fan :)

Love the optimism on our recruiting class but is Ladaris 6'11"? I was thinking more like 6'9"..? I never got to see him in person so I can't say for sure though..

Kev- the thing is basketball really doesn't drive this conference. Baseball does.

Besides, if the A-Sun was to kick out all of their basketball teams that suck, they'd have no teams left!

Hmmm. Baseball drives the conference, eh?

And what would you guess is the average attendance at an ASun baseball game?

I don't have any idea, but I'll guess. 355
