Titans96 is the first to come in with a season record below .500. You can never be negative if you want your name on the prestigious Commissioner's Cup. I think the winner in each of our first three years has been the most negative predictor. Although the Cup judges do award "Moose Points" for optimism.

Not So Smart, where are you?

Picks due by tip off.

It's just a gut feeling, but if JJ Jr. is the leading scorer this season, I think that our final record will be poor. Hoping that he can give us 8-10ppg as 6th man... and we finish in the top 2 in the Horizon.
