My prediction: After going 0-6 in early season tournaments the last two years I just want to win one of these games! The early season success continues and we break the English tournament curse. GMU 72 - Charlotte 67.

Discuss.

This team is huge! Of the 9 guys who have played at least 8 min/game this year, 4 of them are 6'10 or taller.

Not just bigger but more athletic and faster and aggressive. There were 2-3 fouls we got because of our aggressive and I was totally happy with them because they were plays that break Cornell's offensive flow and were questionable calls.

I was talking about Charlotte...

I agree with you though, our combo of length and athleticism is going to tough for any team on our schedule to match up with.

We have to be wary of Charlotte. I was returning to Portland ME at DCA following the Monmouth game. UMaine was there as well connecting, coming from just playing Charlotte and going back to Bangor ME.

There was a trainer holding a player while they sobbed uncontrollably. Most just sat there and stared into space. One of the coaches was drinking out of a brown bag and mumbling incoherently. In all, I thought I was looking at WW1 trench war soldiers just coming back from the front. Shell shocked to say the least.

So whatever Charlotte does ...they apparently do it well.

Apologies - I misread. My fault. They do have tall team members but focused into two positions -- Center and Forward

Didn't we play South Dakota State last year?

This is a "should win" game IMO

For that price, strippers and drugs better come flying out of my TV screen during the game.

What on earth is "passthaballlive"? Sounds like the type of site the govt would be monitoring for illegal pirated streams.
