  1. Thank goodness your Jim Larranaga headline was at least a little bit out of context. Still, it seems hypocritical from a dude I love so much to say anything dismissive of the school and situation (mid-major earning at-large bid) that put him on the map.

  2. Most Mason and CAA fans know is a down year for the CAA in terms of SOS and RPI. For most of the year the message boards talked about having to win to get in this year. With GMU, Drexel and VCU playing well in Jan and Feb they are now hoping to sneak a second team in there. I doubt many folks are angry with Coach L; they probably wish he could have answered the question without putting down the conference.

  3. Im shocked anyone would write an article defending anything Edsall is doing at Maryland. His off the field choices and actions, not having a plan to advance Obrien’s abilities, losing the team by installing draconian rules, blaming players for losses are part of what make up his personality. So, yes, you can hate on him personally.
