So, is this the Louisville game or the first St. John's game?

I like the idea of playing WVU on a neutral site. I believe that they have no sense of urgency.

Do note: Huggins' teams tend to be front-runners. They don't come from behind late in the game. My sense is that he is discouraging to his players once his team falls behind in the second half.

Stay tuned.

Thanks for the good work on your blog throughout the year.

We just need to be worried about our games, forget Cleaveland State.

Sure it would be nice if all the other bubble teams lost, but we can't control that.

The Irish need to go out and win there games, I think 2 more wins will get them in but their goal is 4 more games. All the Irish have to do is keep winning and they will make it.
