This is the first of the Hawaii-themed articles that we're sure to see over the next week. Answers Mike K's upstate NY recruit question and shows ML is also using MV's argument that losing away games to teams with combined 29-2 (then 27-2) record is nothing to be despondent about.

Thanks BM. Nice article. I wouldn't mind 85 degree weather, then maybe I could shake this cold. I was hoping there would be a new upstate recruit to come on the radar.

Other notes: Ohio lost an OT game at Evansville last night, dropping to 3-4 (KenPom 185) while Depaul tried to break up the long trip by stopping by at Oregon State. The Beavers handed them a 30 point thumping as a welcome gift. Meanwhile, Colorado is taking a nine day break.
If we beat Ohio and lose to Colorado, likely third game will be against Nebraska/Hawaii winner. KenPom says Nebraska has the edge.

Sorry that was Pops' comment re 29-2 opponent record.

I'm pretty sure Hawaii lost to Evansville last night so Nebraska who was top 25 earlier this year should win.

i think Nebraska loses any cred with the loss to Incarnate Word.

Believe in the Word, BM. Currently 28 RPI, 10 spots higher than GW

BTW, that was Ohio losing at Evansville, not Hawaii.

Lonergan is a good coasch but the dude's smokin something if thinks the team should only lost 1 game. GW's ok but not awesome.

Both Penn State and Seton Hall were winnable games that we lost. (In fact, Seton Hall was anyone's game going into the last minute and Vegas made us slight favorites at Penn State. ML's statement was reasonable rather than the product of psychotropic drugs.
