Correct.  And that means our final opponent will be selected by Kentucky to fill out their MTE.  Likely a home game vs. a low mid major.

Lower conference and I also am gone.  No matter how low things seem to have gone this year, I do not go in reverse.  Period.  Nearly 50 years of waiting does not change that - I am a proud ‘71 graduate.

Perhaps Jackie needed a break but in a basketball game that close, the break for a hot hand would be quite brief.  After a minute or two of playing time, send him to the scorers table to check in and call a time out to give him another minute or so.  Just a thought from a clueless fan

Despite the turnovers, the Hawks have been for the most part competitive.  The Richmond blowout and win over Georgetown stand out.  Four of their five conference losses were double digit so although not a walk in the park, we simply must start beating teams like this.  No more Fordhams.  With all due respect to Funk, Obinna concerns me much more.

I, for one, am still here - maybe more of a supporter than a believer.  I don't deny some of your statements about making excuses and I am not enough of a "basketball mind" to criticize the coaching but there have been moments ( as there have been and will continue to be for ANY coach).  Especially after losses.  But two short seasons ago, we entered the not to be A10 tournament with 21 wins and everyone couldn't get enough of Dambrot.  There are things for sure I wish he had not said (or did) but there are reasons for everything.  Excusable?  Perhaps not.  He has a job to do and admittedly the results do not meet our expectations, like him or not.  Knowing him personally, I err on the side of at least some sympathy for all he has endured that past couple months.  Yes, he could have worked through all that better but to compare him unvfavorably to some of the disastrous coaching of the past 40 or so years is not borne out by results.  So your are 63?  Well, I am 72 so I get it.  Winning 21 games two years ago was wonderful.  I don't have solutions, but one solution many have I will not subscribe two and that is condemnation and attacks on this  man.  If he does not work out, he is, unfortunately, the most recent of many and by all means certainly not the worst.  I will just stay the course and hope things get better.  Not much else I can do.  Slanderous and cutting remarks are not in my DNA.  Deserved criticisms are.  Respectfully, a Duquesne grad and fan that refuses to quit.

I realize there are still areas to improve but he is a joy to watch.  He and Primo could be as good of a guard tandem as there is in the conference even as freshmen.  And I might add that Acuff is looking real good as well.  Need to keep going against a much improved Fordham team that will not be easy.  One game at a time.  Congrats Jackie!

Yes definitely.  I believe my senior year of high school which would have been 1966-67.  At least I think that would have been the year.

Judge.  We used to do this all the time in basketball - and you certainly knew most of us!  It was always fun research.  Never thought I would see it for football back in the club days .  Great work.

Certainly agree.  There are only three options - Rhody, St. Lou and the Bonnies.  Not sure, of course, of the problems logistically for any of them, but we certainly have to come up with a plan.  By the way, I saw at least two other conferences that have played zero games , one of which is Gonzaga’s conference.

Pretty solidly in Group C although once March gets here I expand my enjoyment to all the conference tournaments.  Root heavily for previous Dukes opponents.

Absolutely no surprise at all.  35 or maybe more D1 games cancelled last 2 days including half or more of scheduled A10 games plus games involving our 2 most recent opponents.  All we can do is prepare for Davidson and hope all can stay healthy.

Levon - I agree with two statements you made.  First, developing chemistry takes time and second, I don’t consider it appropriate to already talk transfers. 
Now, having said that, any excuse for several of our losses regarding chemistry or inexperience simply does not fly.  We have made the kind of mistakes to cost us games that should have been corrected in junior high or earlier.  I always look to the next game with hope but I find myself wondering what form the loss will take.  I will never throw in the towel but we are making even us eternal optimists struggle.

It does appear puzzling but it is a long, long way until March and April when we see what the portal takes away (and brings).  Yes, we could end up with a plethora of guards but in the meantime we have to take quality players who want to be here.  I sure don’t know who will stay and go but I will trust the brain trust and see.  We have offered Carson Cooper who is 6’9” and I suspect more offers will come.  Thus thinketh I.

Can we just stop this nonsense?  I like to think that both of us made it out of grade school.  Later, I have a game to watch.

If you want to call me a hypocrite have at it.  I am a frustrated fan like you and many others.  But don’t be calling me the worst kind of fan.  I will be there supporting and rooting  as I did during the last 7 Or 8 coaches.  Like I said if I am a hypocrite, guilty as charged if that is what you perceive.  But I AM a fan.

Phil.  Not sure.  Might be a little of both I guess.  Coming back from the injury and maybe needs the developmental year I suppose.  Right now I think they all need a developmental year.  LOL
