Suck It, Voters…Computers Are Our True Love

Think I give two (insert synonym for poop here) about what human voters think about our basketball team?  The answer after this commercial break…

UConn Build-Up

Stephen Curry, err….Davidson Open Thread

I guess they have other players.  I assume we’ll find out tonight.

Tonight, at 9 p.m., CBH faces his old mentee Andy Kennedy in a crucial game for our Mountaineers.  After a demoralizing defeat at the hands Blue Ball Nation, the Mountaineers need to make a statement on the road.  With a 32-3 home record under Kennedy, getting a W could be a much tougher task than I originally thought.
