This is a good tournament field. I don't disagree with us playing these tourneys, as they get us chances to play against really good competition. We just have to actually show up.

Good exposure and a good field. Hopefully we're playing better basketball by that time.

Well, can't be any worse than what we just witnessed in the Caymans. Thanksgiving in Disney World sounds like a great time. I will plan to make this one.

Without a doubt. Only chimes in when UAB is down.

Another tourney for the guys, exposure for the program, and an opportunity for fans to ***** about losing.

Looking at our pre-conference tournament history, I think the fans have every reason to *****.

Amen.

But hey, season ticket holders and Blazer road warriors, the regular season doesn't really count. It's all warm up for the CUSA Barn Burner so relax and enjoy the Blazer Ballet, otherwise known as our defense.

But it is a good tournament and I'm glad we're going. The Disney Youth Soccer Showcase held Thanksgiving week is one of the biggest tournaments in the nation. Walked past that building at WWoS many times on the way to the soccer fields. Be great to actually go in and watch some games.

Smh

Why chime in when it's going good? Also when has basketball been good or up lately? Seems like the last time was under Davis. 2014 was a 16-15 season that's great I guess. 2015 was great too, play a soft schedule then fall flat on your face now what being three years removed from the tournament we barely got in at 18-15 we wasn't the best team that year or the following year.




It's like why chime in on what Clark is doing, just sit back and watch his show. If there's a question, ask it and move on. There are few things to gripe about and I mean few (OC). I don't gripe about football's past because I'm enjoying it's present and future. Last time I gripe about football McGee-Callaway-Brown love what Clark is doing.

We were up under Davis? 03-lmfao
More like in shambles. Those teams usually relied on one star, and couldn't win a tourney game. Patchwork Davis barely got by.
