Anyone know who is coacing the Drew team while alblack is on vacation?  I'm helping his Mars Hill team in Wooden and can't access it.  It looks like whoever is coaching his Drew team hasn't logged out.  (I'm logged in as al, but can't access any team at all.)

Nevermind.  Got a quick reply from customer service.

I like it, but I think I can battle for 2nd this year with a little luck.  I expect 6 maybe even 7 teams in the big dance and 2 or 3 in the PIT.  So my prediction is 10 tourney teams in all.  WOW.  Only other thing is I think I would swap FDMU with DelVal
9/29/2010 5:05 AM
Last season, at 12-16, was a 'downer' for the Drew Rangers. But we're off to a great start this time, 4-0, with wins over #7 York, #13 Cabrini, and Case Western, last season's NT runner-up.
9/30/2010 5:00 PM
The East is wide open!  I could have switched them around in just about any order.  After Frostburg in the West, the rest of those teams could be in any order.  You have a great shot at second place in the West, Kap.
