Tonight is the night we start beating these guys again. I think we only have 2 wins vs. the Bearkats the last three seasons.

Looks like Whiting’s found a lineup he’s going to stick with. Not bad, really, especially if Padgett, Triolo, and Lockhart can get going.

By the way, didn’t go tonight and they Win. Thinking it’s me. I may test this out 1 more time this year, but if they lose, I may stay away the rest of the season. I’ll just donate money to the program for games that I miss.
