    This team remains a mystery. No clue whether the good, the bad, or the ugly will show up in any half of a game. My gut says we lose by 5. St. Joe's 73 - Mason 68.

    We made Taylor funk look all American last year and he’s extremely mediocre. Somebody needs to stop Charlie Brown and limit Kimble to bad shots. I’m interested in watching another missed recruit Bynum play as he should be the real deal. I do have a good feeling against St Joes

    Tough game to start but hopefully the guys will be ready. They need to get off on the right foot for conf play.

    In one game, but not the other. The third game is kind of a push as he didn’t take nearly as many shots as the other two games.

    It’ll be interesting to see how we guard them. Greene on Kimble, Kier on Brown, Mar on Funk? Please don’t let Otis get stuck guarding Kimble.

    well the good thing is if Otis and Kimble guard each other we might watch both guys get 30 points lol. Otis on Bynum, Kier/Boyd on Brown, Greene on Kimble, Mar on Funk and Reuter on Longpre/Oliva to start I would presume

    St Joe's is about as middle tier A10 this year as one can imagine so it will be a good test for us. Lost to W&M but beat ODU and Wake... St Joe's has a different style but is probably as much an equal for us as we will see in conference play this year

    This wouldn't be the first time Mar has been associated with "funk" this year. I know we all keep waiting for it, but maybe this will be the game that Mar finally breaks out of his.

    St.Joes has not played as well as I expected them to this year. We can beat them, just depends on what team we have show up. I’d like another buzzer beater by Boyd on their court.

    I remember in either the second game or maybe the A10 tournament game that Otis was playing Funk. My first thought was Funk is a foot taller than Otis and he would post him up all game. Much to my surprise, it never happened...Funk stayed on the perimeter all game and wasn't much of a factor.

    No clue what happens. Charlie Brown is a beast though. Do we have anyone named Lucy that can guard him and pull the ball away when he is about to kick... I mean shoot it?

    Feels like one we really need seeing how we play them once. Big tie-breaker possibility. Feeling decent about it though.

    This is how I feel every time I read one of DJ3 or PMP’s posts hoping they are not just alias profiles forMikey The Chimp.

    Well KSU was favored by 15.5, so doesn’t that mean this will be a cakewalk?

    This is A10 play so maybe not a cakewalk but a cake jog, cake run or if Otis is off again, a cake sprint.
