In fairness to WKU it's their first year of eligibility in D-I or whatever it's called now. I think WKU will finish better than UNT

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Re: New York Times Pre-Season

Good write up on Wyoming.  I liked that they recognized us as a "tough game".  ;D  It reaffirmed by belief that this is a team we should beat.
