MyBB Toledo Rockets
Toledo went 17-3 in the MAC last season, and 26-8 overall. Their star player was a sophomore - Ryan Rollins. Rollins plays for the Golden State Warriors this season with a salary just over one million.

UAB is now ranked 47th by KenPom. Toledo comes in at 84. UAB is Toledo’s highest ranked opponent this season.

Toledo opened up with Valparaiso (218) last night and won 85-70. The Rockets led 52-26 at halftime. This game was never close. They shut it down over the last 10 minutes, when they only scored 15 additional points.

This game is at the Wells Fargo Center in Philly. There is a statue of Wilt Chamberlain outside the arena.

KenPom has it UAB 80 - Toledo 76.

RE: Toledo Rockets
This is a very good test for us. Toledo is a solid team. I want to see us play better defense than we did last night.

RE: Toledo Rockets
I have a feeling this will be similar to the St. Louis game last year. Good competition, close game, good win.
But if we beat this team by double digits, then that will be a great start for this talented and deep team.

RE: Toledo Rockets
This will be a tough game and probably one of the three best teams we play in the OOC portion of the season. Toledo is good but this is the kind of game we should win on a neutral court with the talent we have. A tough test that we maintain control of and win would be great.

I'm excited to see the relationship develop between Jelly/UAB and Barstool. This is a pretty sweet opportunity to get more eyes on the program.

This is the one time I will fully get behind this statement. Winning this game is an absolute must if we want this season to go the way we are all anticipating.

RE: Toledo Rockets
Barstool and their personalities are really hyping the game on social media and the Barstool website. Jelly was on one of the basketball podcasts yesterday.

With how much they hype Jelly, I hope he doesn't try to force things trying to show out.

I was thinking the same thing. Love the hype, but I hope he doesn't feel the pressure to perform for them--especially since they have been one of his NIL sponsors with the shirts and all.

RE: Toledo Rockets
I thought it was a good interview.

He certainly didn’t say anything crazy or talk down the Toledo team. He said they were really good and he didn’t take the bait when one of their guys said something in the beginning to the effect of “there’s no one on their team that can stop you dropping 30 right?”

Talked about his experience with seton hall and Tulane and the transfer experience.

Talked about Jelly fam and last years season.

Nothing crazy.

I agree - pressure is privilege. This team should be good enough to stand up to this “pressure.” I hope they prove it on the court today
