Re: Did anyone think our league would perform like this?

I may have made a mistake, and if I did, i'm sorry. It is quite possible that I quoted a different Nostrajimus. I ain't no internet expert and there are probably dozens of Nostrajimus' out there. Don't take my jests as wanting you gone. I would hate for anyone to leave these boards. We need more interest, not less. Ive just found that for the past month everytime I saw your name I knew - without a shadow of a doubt, that your post was going to denegrade and downplay the conference RPI and/or speak to how the AE has NO chance to avoid the play in.

If Maine could win the conference tourney and win a Play-in Game, I would celebrate like they just won the GD National Championship!!! Obviously that wouldn't be enough for Nostrajimmy, but oh well.

Salty, keep it coming....this is a good read.

Nostra is just crank because UVM Hockey managed to go 1-0-1 over the weekend VS his beloved Black Bears. GO CATS GO

I still don't see anything wrong with the first round game except its acronym. UVM did something in that game that they could not do in any other. They made Bobby Knight cry.

Talk about a claim to fame!

Unfortunately that comes with losing to the likes of Monmouth, Mt St. Marys, Dartmouth, Brown etc... etc...

It's not UVM's fault that these cupcakes are on the schedule for designed wins, yet end up as losses by low level jokes like UMO & Bingo. All aboard, the next train to Dayton is pulling out.

Let's hope UMO can defeat D3 Fisher College of Stone & Gravel Research on Thurs

How many wins since they became UCONN? Those you can claim, because the others were against your sister AE/Yankee conf Connecticut foe.

Basketball should have FBS vs FCS distinction similar to FB, because there's D1 and then there's sub D1 (i.e. AE conf and many other weaklings)

It's a joke these weak conf even get an AQ, when more than half the field in the NIT is much better than these PIG conferences in the first place.

Real conf like the IVY have to fight & claw to win the conf. AQ. You guys could go 0-29 and still have a shot at The Dance.

Basically the AE AQ is no different than receiving Gov't Cheese.

Big difference, as UMO has never won as much as a conf title in it's entire history, which is the longest strek of futility of any D1 (debateable) program in college basketball history.

93 seasons and counting.

I think you'd be dancing in the streets if they could finally win just 1 AE Tourney game, umainealum

Unfortunately you'll have to wait at least another year

Nostrajimus - if the AE is so terrible and insignificant why do you spend so much of your time concerned with it?

Have you been slighted by the AE in the past?

I for one don't pay attention to thing I fell are insignificant - you on the other hand seem obsessed with putting down the AE.

Keep at it, I will go back to ignoring every post with your name on it.

I hope your life turns for the better,is more rewarding and your time is spent on more productive things - Good Luck!

Re: Did anyone think our league would perform like this?

The great Lou Holtz said "You are never as good as they say you are when you win and you are never as bad as they say you are when you lose." I think people need to think about this more. I see a lot of people overhyping after 1 win and the world come crashing down on 1 loss.

But on the court both Bing and UVM had really good teams.
