We got a first-place vote?

And Milwaukee and YSU got first-place votes? Didn't the voters read The Commish's preview on this board?

Does that mean he does not think we are good enough to be receiving 1st place votes? I kind of was hoping for a little more confidence now that the roster has his fingerprints all over it!

In his interview, BA said the team is starting to have conversations about winning championships. Seemed an appropriate way to express confidence without sounding too cocky.

Over the 4 years for which I've collected data, the Horizon League poll has been the most accurate, on average, at predicting the league standings. http://udtitanbasketball.freeforums.net ... redictions. Last year it was the second most accurate, after CBS Sports. The year before it was the second most accurate after Ken Pomeroy.

theres another thing we agree on sam!
In Greek mythology, the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power! Well that basketball court out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans! (with apologies to coach boon)
