    Both teams will be coming in at 2-0 in the CAA with the winner in the drivers seat. We have had GMU's number at the Ted lets hope that trend continues. I'm looking for an effort like against Missouri but this time we get the W to go with the effort.

    ODU will bring it against the Patsy's. I expect the crowd to be totally rowdy and our guys will be pumped.

    Some students may be back, but most won't come back until saturday and sunday I'd suspect.

    The other unbeaten teams meet Wednesday night, the Panthers could steal one from the lambs. I'll be a Pounce fan in two days.

    He is the best player I have ever seen with a 1.2" vertical leap.

    Maybe if he fouls out Coop, Wright, and Ross, Pimental will get to play. Nah, Baze can play center in that case...

    Missouri is a better team than GMU.
    ODU played with good effort and competitive greatness against Missouri and was a minute and 30 second left run away from winning.
    If ODU brings the same playing ability they did at home against Missouri while playing at home against George Mason I can only assume ODU wins, and by a margin that is equal to or greater than the margin ODU lost to Missouri by.

    Can a different coach change the "home team wins" streak of about 5 years now? I hope not.

    One thing Mason can do is score. If ODU gets hot and breaks 35% shooting, we should be OK.

    If we can beat Mason at home as we have done the last few years we can get on a pretty nice run in conference play.

    1/11 A Delaware (We will not lose there two years in a row!)

    As an old friend of mine would say (with regard to Monarch victories and beer). "Stay thirsty my friends."

    I was at the UVA/Mason game an my evaluation of Mason was -

    If ODU comes out of the gate hot, the Patriots will roll over and play dead.
    If ODU screws around like they have been, the Patriots will smell vunerability and be hard to beat.

    In the past three games, Trian has made 16 of 29 field goals and 10 of 23 from behind the arc. He averaged 17.3 points per game coming off the bench with Coop. This was a nice change to the line-up by Blaine.

    ODU opens as a 3.5 point favorite.

    Chaos theory reference to holding something under control that in reality never really was under control, or something.

    I think he was referring to their extremely athletic frontcourt of Anthony Davis, Kidd-Gilchrist, and Terrance Jones, all three lottery picks after this year. You never see that.

    ODU being the Galamimus to the KU Tyrannasaurus.

    How many people here listened or listen to Rush Limbaugh? You know how he refers to John Kerry? He begins the stories saying
    john kerry, who by the way served in Vietnam...."

    We should do that for VCU basketball. I just read an atlanta journal constitution blog about the GSU beating of VCU in Richmond and they began the story saying this:

    "Georgia State defeated VCU, which made it to the Final Four last year, 55-53 on Wednesday in Richmond. "

    I say each time we refer to VCU we do the same "which made it to the Final Four last year" and just play it out to comedic levels like Rush does with John kerry and Vietnam.

    Any yes votes?

    I agree and should continue it forever. 23 years from now we'll be saying, "Tonight the Monarchs are facing our heated rival, VCU, which made it to the final four 24 years ago."

    I say we not. The more I think or type about VCU the more nauseous I get, so I will keep it short.
