I like our chances in this game. Neutral site and Louisville could possibly lose 4 quality players. Russ Smith and Luke Hancock are gone for sure. Harrell and Behanen could be gone as well. We'll lose Austin and Malik. Hopefully Dre stays. We could be potentially starting four seniors. If somehow we landed Vaughn we may actually be favored in this game.
def some awesome pub for us being on the front page of ESPN again. definitely nice having the pull of Rick Pitino to get us in the spotlight
I do recall this though...I remember the announcers discussing it during the game in Germany, but Connecticut had a few players from Germany at the time. I recall the announcers saying the Connecticut players were all given a set number of tickets to the game to give to family members, but the basically all gave them to the German players so their families could see them for a change.
But then again, with this one being within US territory and close to the mainland, it might be a different story.
I am relocating to my daughter's in Arizona soon. Gonna live on Easy Street where the grass is greener on MY side of the fence.
for me this is year not getting Reid really hurts, if we would have gotten him and one other top recruit that we were trying to get i think we would have been actually favored in this game
Morris is a 4 star on scout
Positives: nice exposure for the program
Negatives: if the Gophs don't play well, that will color the national media's opinion of the team for the rest of the season.
