We have a long way to go. In recent weeks, we have needed OT to beat 300+ Rice and Fairfield and squeaked by 300+ Norfolk State by the hair on our arse. We have time to get there, but we are definitely not a tournament team right now.

Good point. I think even I have gotten caught up a bit with the winning, but the fact is that we have yet to beat anyone that's good. The positive takeaway at this point is that we seem to be a mature enough team to not lose to terrible teams, which is definitely an improvement.

I hate you Petey for making me watch that again.

Too soon?

Truth be told. I needed therapy after that week in my life. I am happy to have survived it. We lose like that, with our best team EVER,... and then Feces FF run. I'm lucky I didnt pee on a spark plug that April

Towson's slump has taken some luster off that win but it's still top 100. Ditto Dayton, which doesn't have a good record but a stellar SOS keeps them in double digits.

But yeah, past that, it's not pretty.
