Good luck today Trojans.

I hope we play well on national TV and give you a good game. Of course, I want to win but a loss against a 22-4 on their court won't be unexpected or that disappointing to me. If you win today, I hope you are undefeated until the Sun Belt final. That's when I really want to get the win. I also believe there's a good chance you get an at large bid if that happens. You have an RPI of 40 which is right on the bubble. But I think 6 more wins will put you on the right side of the bubble. There are still people in Arkansas who believe the pigs could get in and they have an RPI of 73. Good luck today. Ya'll appear to be great fans and deserve the team you have this year.

I would not surprise me if we lose, but I want the team to play well. Don't embarrass us on TV like they have the last couple of times.

Forget those usual pregame songs. We need the theme from Rocky! Time to strap it on!

It wouldn't surprise me either way if we win or lose. This team has been surprise after surprise. When I've thought for sure we'd lose, I've been surprised, and when I thought we'd win, I've been surprised.

BTH has his keys to the game, which are always interesting. Here are mine.
1. Whoever guards Dendy has to get it done. He could kill us.
2. We can't get much behind because it will be a big crowd. Have to keep it close, at least.
3. No turnovers. If they win, make them win it. Don't beat ourselves.
4. Will can't get in foul trouble.

Their defense is very impressive. Don't expect us to blow them out offensively.
For all their muscle up front, they are only +2.3 on the boards. We need to keep that close, at least.
They have a positive A/TO as a team. Pressure from our guards is going to have to be intense to get them out of their rhythm.
They are not a great FT team.

Geez our free throw shooting has been horrendous lately... just over .500 against WKU IIRC. We really need to improve on that. One of our big men, Shawn Jones (who's our 5th [?] leading scorer), is out with a foot injury and was for the WKU game too. I was, however, impressed by the play of Sulton and Dendy in the WKU game - especially Dendy, who really ate up the Western defense.

Don't know if you guys know but this game is a Blueout event where the AD is encouraging all fans to wear blue and show school pride. But I read today in our local paper that the Raiders will be wearing the road blue uniforms for this game per an agreement between the two schools - that's the first time I heard about it. I hope it's true, that'll help the atmosphere.

Honestly, you do. This is middle's chance to make a statement for a 12 seed or better.

For us it is a chance to p,ay the spoilerand show that we are loaded for next year. That we have turned the corner.


I fear a ugly game.

Great crowd at the Murphy Center. Very loud. I hope that can make the statement for a good seed (like you said 12 or better). Great game! Go Blue Raiders!
