So who are the big College Basketball fans in here?
Being an alumni to a school where the only big athletic program they have is basketball I’ve grown quite fond of it.
Things are looking promising for my URI Rams so far this year almost pulling off the upset in Cameron and winning the rest of their games. I believe the rankings come out today so I’m hoping they muster up a few more top 25 votes.
I’ve been anxiously awaiting this season as a little pick-me-up after last years epic collapse. #19 in the country with a 19-3 start to collapsing to a 21-12 record and a first round bounce in the NIT.
So who does everyone root for?
You bastards stole your team name from VCU.
We only have basketball also, although there are rumors of a football team in the not too distant future. Two years ago we made it into the NCAA tournament and beat Duke in the first round, and lost a heartbreaker to Pitt in the second round.
Last year we went to the NIT, and I don’t think we did very well. We still have a pretty good team, a good coach, and all of our star players so we should do well this year, at least for our third-world Colonial Athletic Association.
I believe my Rams have bragging rights over your Rams right now… just saying.
