    I know it’s only November, but this game seems big for a lot of reasons.

    How many times have we felt Steele and Co. might have turned the corner only to see them fall back to bad habits. Another turning point moment today.

    Golf is a relatively simple game, played by reasonably intelligent people, stupidly.

    Yep. Just feels so important to get a win here. Maybe last game was still trying to turn corner and X is more like OSU game than Iowa state. (optimistically hoping so). Let’s get a good bounce back win against a team who was just outside top 25 (27) coming into the week

    Everyone talks about Iowa State going 2-22 last year. This is a new year, that whole team was selected by choice from the portal, plus some good recruits, and a holdover or two. X was surprised by a different team than they expected, plus X played very bad. Iowa State is now like 5-0. This is on the coach.

    I'll probably put a few bucks on Xavier ML tonight. 4 point dogs and +155.

    I think I posted this in my original thread (that I had to delete and start over due to covid brain).

    The coach of VT is Mike Young, who I watched for many years here at Wofford. Very good coach.
    Took a couple of his Wofford players to VT (Aluma and Storm Murphy). He played here a very fast paced game.
    Constant push on offense off of a missed shot/defensive rebounds. Required 8-9 players to constantly rotate to keep up the pace.
    Would expect more of the same and we may need to play additional guys to keep up.

    Time to right the ship.
