Taking Care of Business

The X men's victory over George Washington Saturday night wasn't pretty but they accomplished their goal. The remaining six A10 road games (at UMASS, St. Louis, Charlotte, Rhode Island, Dayton and St. Joes) present no guarantees. Conversely the home slate is more manageable with Dayton, Lasalle, St Joes, Duquesne, George Washington and Richmond visiting the 'Tas. IF we could manage a .500 record on the road and win all our home games that would give X a 12-4 record. My vein of thought is that we can take the Billikens, 49ers, and the Rams with an outside shot at the Flyers due to their injury issues. I do not see us getting it done at UMASS or at the crappiest D1 facility in the NCAA (Alumni Fieldhouse) on Hawk Hill.

Speaking of taking care of business some marquee scalps on X's nonconference resume increased the attractiveness of said resume with key top 25 victories yesterday. Kansas State owned #9 Texas A&M, Auburn took down #15 rated Ole Miss, and the Bearcats won over #18 Pitt. UC is now a quality win. Thanks Mick.
