    I don’t know why I bother because we suck. Thanks for nothing DP.

    Final game of the 2020 regular season. PIG to come.

    Fordham has two conference wins, both against GW.
    They’ve lost to everyone else.

    The game is on ESPN+.

    Fordham is led by Jalen Cobb and Antwon Portley, both average 10.5 ppg.

    This will be the lone meeting against Fordham for the year.

    DP is 3-2 against Fordham as a member of the A10.

    Schedule - https://fordhamsports.com/sports/mens-basketball/schedule
    Roster - https://fordhamsports.com/sports/mens-basketball/roster
    Stats - https://fordhamsports.com/sports/mens-basketball/roster

    My prediction: Offensively Fordham averages 57.9 points per game which ranks last in the A10. They shoot 37.9% from the field and 31.6% from 3. However, they only give up 62.3 points per game which is the best in the A10. Their opponents shoot 40.2% overall and 30.3% from 3. Disclaimer, I posted this before their season stats had been updated. I expect a low scoring, brick laying, downright ugly contest. Given everything else we have seen this year I won’t be surprised if we lose this one. But, I’ll predict a 5th conference win for DP and the men in green and gold. GMU 59 - Fordham 57. 4-14 or 5-13, not exactly a stellar conference season.

    I get to watch this in person. Look for the tall guy throwing his hands up and looking disgusted on the espn feed with 200 people there at best.

    hopefully they don’t meltdown like last time.

    The conference is so smart scheduling Mason-Fordham and LaSalle-St Joe's to end the season and then have the same 4 teams get back together again four days later. Its like they know we want two days of PIGs......

    Staying positive? A win means we will finish .500 or slightly above if we win the pig.

    we should work oinking into our chants since we are pigs more often than not.

    let’s go mason... Oink oink oink.

    I predicted after St. Bonnie loss on Jan. 8th that moved G Mas to 11-4 and 0-2 that they’d finish under .500 for the season. This game is HUGE for the PMP!

    I think piglet is actually a great metaphor for mason lately. tried real hard and wouldn’t hurt a fly.


    Make two free throws, squeal like pigs.

    actually we kinda do that already...

    I believe that La Salle will avoid the PIG if it wins at St. Joe's and GW loses at Dayton.

    Lol- I saw Fordham come back down 20 against Mason 2 years ago and didn’t jump off the Empire STate Building but hopefully I don’t have any need to do it this go round.

    I believe I have identified our entire problem this year. Our downward slide corresponds almost perfectly with Patriotsince81 starting to do the game threads. So, if there is blame to be issued, it goes to Patriotsince81 for doing the threads (and Washingtonian for quitting), thus affecting our joojoo with their change.

    Let's start a Fire Patriotsince81 thread now! (I'd have suggested firing Washingtonian, but, apparently, he has already quit).

    I agree. I think I should take myself out into the parking lot and beat the sh&t out of myself.
