The thought was always that the OOC (especially this season) was to get ready for the conference season. It starts soon and we'll see where we are in a hurry.
I think we are looking at a six or seven win conference season. 6 - 10 or 7 - 9 where we win most of our home games (except against the best teams) and maybe sneak in a road win against a bad team. I don't think we are looking at 3 - 13.
We will probably make some games tight on the road (within 5 points with 5 minutes left), but not win those. I can see one or two blow-out losses on the road, however, where shots don't fall and the schools that know us well (like the other MAC schools) scheme us out of what we need to do to be successful (and make us do the things we don't like to do).
Completely agree with this. UB's going to be a middling MAC team IMO, but it's so hard to win on the road in the MAC, we won't lose much or by large margins at home. I can't see them taking road wins this year, however, unless we run into some really bad squads (NIU of the past few years, for example).
That was McCreas third double-double of the season? That's it? He should be averaging that a night.
Seriously? There's like 4 guys in D-I that average that a season, often less.
