GW announced agreement of a home-home series with U of Central Florida. Playing this year in Orlando on December 29. Next year at Smith Center.

Good find, poog.

Not hugely excited,since Holiday week precludes a quick trip to Orlando, but like Hawaii, our good coach will make itfun for the players.

Hope potential recruits are noticing these type of things.

GW: serious basketball,caring coach in a family atmosphere,great location, excellent academics. And still time for fun and adventure.

UCF wasn't great last year. 12-18 and 5-13 in the AAC. Most notable thing may be their black-stained home court, which is actually pretty cool.

I'm on a plane so can't really find out much on whether or not their expected to improve this year or next. Hopefully they do, and would still rather have a not great UCF on the schedule than a Longwood or UMES or the like.

Possible connection that helped get this game scheduled

More about post-Christmas location than opponent. Good interlude between end of exams and start of A-10 season. Beats a Smith Center turkey shoot on the schedule when nobody's around.

All we need now is for Darnell Rogers to commit to GW so we can see him line up next to 7-6 Tacko Fall when UCF visits the Smith Center in 2016.

Making Orlando "fun" would require the coaches working more of a miracle than it would take to get GW to the Final Four.

I'm predicting the team will visit Disney and there will be pictures of Coach Lonergan wearing mouse ears.

Well, I thought we were a game short when the OOC schedule was first announced (thanks for correcting me at the time Bo) and now, with the scheduling of this game, we have hit the maximum allotment of games. Very glad we didn't leave a game on the table.

MV, thanks for not pointing out that was before BB&T was dropped from the projected schedule. At the time of my post then we had the maximum number of games scheduled (including the BB&T) and we now have the maximum number of games scheduled (dropping BB&T and adding UCF).

By: The MV (4,915 posts) - 8/28/2015 11:58:02 AM

Bo, why can you never and I mean NEVER admit when you were wrong? You are completely full of shit on this one.  This conversation took place when GW announced its out-of-conference schedule.  At that time, the school announced that it would not be participating in the BB&T.  I then pointed out that we were a game short and you indicated that we weren't. This had nothing to do with not playing in the BB&T as this exchange took place after this fact was announced.  

Whatever credibility you have here, it takes a major hit when you get something wrong and then can't even acknowledge this.  Despite your thoughts on the subject, none of us are perfect.

Please somebody find the thread.

Nice try though.

By: Bo Knows (705 posts) - 8/28/2015 12:28:56 PM

I stand corrected MV thought the discussion had occurred much earlier. My apologies. My error eas that the Gannon scrimmage does not count due to NCAA exemption for Non-DI scrimmages. I forgot about that when counting the 27 games and scrimmages. But in fairness, you didn't know that either or I am certain you would have corrected me (and LSF at time) because I did lay out the exact rule in that thread. So yes I was wrong. I will now hang my head in shame. 


By: Nitro (8/28/2015 12:35:58 PM)

Dude, do I now also need to hang my head in shame? 

By: The MV (4,915 posts) - 8/28/2015 12:37:58 PM

Bo, no need to hang your head in shame.  It happens to everyone.

We need some good news soon before board discussion degenerates any further. And this is the mild thread.

A top recruit is obligated to come to GW to break this late summer doldrums cycle.

Honestly I'd just like more of Nitro's thoughts.

Justin McBride looks to have a similar build to Kenner League vet Calvin Brown, who gave GW's big guys some problems last month. So the team knows what's in store when they face J.McBride.

I've been out with women with that sort of build. None have been any fun.

GW RECENT RECRUITING, Classes of 2013 2014 2015...2016

Easy fix for those Pat Andree devotees. We can leave young Pat's thread to Pat Andree: The Dude (529 posts) - 8/10/2015 7:39:09 PM Anyone else here a little concerned about the recent recruiting efforts? The 2013 class was a disaster, the 2015 cl
