Always nice to get a win against a quality squad like Chaminade. Not sure how we're +11 tonight at home tonight, but I'll be putting a few bucks on St. Rose...Pete Rose style.

Looks like I overestimated my squad in that game and underestimated Limestone. This next game against Armstrong is weird because they are not the most talented team but they are 6-0 and #4 in the country. We'll see how this goes.

cregen, I can't figure my squad out.  the played like crap a few games and have been unloading on teams the past few games.  I am not convinced we really #2, that's for sure.  I expected a very close game vs. your squad.  GL rest of the way.

GL to you too brian. William Nelson looks like an awesome weapon to have on offense. Should be a great year for you.
