so now its down to Belmont-Abbey. Longwood and Mercy would be next in line should crashdive pass.

I'm going to pass if Bel Abbey does not accept due to next season definitely being a major rebuild.

Offer extended to Mercy and Northeastern St. Initial offer to Belmont-Abbey still stands. It's first-come first-served at this point for the final spot.

Hacker has extended an offer to CSU, Stanislaus and coach bvb, which would be his first Yarnell appearance since his Gannon days if he accepts.  Still waiting to fill the final tourney spot before we can start scheduling.

CSU, Stanislaus has accepted the last spot.  hacker should have the schedule set shortly.

I'll play if needed but looking at it I think other teams may be more deserving. I'm well down the dynasty list plus I lose 5 seniors and will be rebuilding next year.

Bvb HAS COME BACK to the Yarnell Invitational
1/4/2013 8:21 PM
Parkside will have an extremely young team for the tournament (5 Sophs and 5 Fresh), so I'm really just hoping to stay competitive.  With that young of a team, I'll be happy if I can win A game, let alone contend for the championship.  We'll give it our best shot though!

bvb you don't even give me a chance to say yes.  Wow after all we have been through.  Oh well thats ok I'll be back again soon.  This will be the first time in 6 or 7 season that I won't be scheduling a tourney.  If any of you would still like to play in non conference hit me up.
