    The board just achieved full meltdown mode with that reference to Brian Gregory and VD.

    Not sure if it’s a meltdown or boredom/frustration with the coach. X’s brand was always a scrappy, underdog with a cinder block on its shoulder. That’s not Steele.

    This board is in meltdown mode. Anytime one of our coaches is compared to Brian Gregory, we are in meltdown mode.

    Played pretty well until the final few minutes. I thought when they broke out early in the 2nd half they had a shot to win this thing but just couldn't pull it out.

    I hope Iím wrong but I doubt it.

    We're still on track for a tournament bid, so today's loss doesn't upset me too much.

    But I really don't want to be sitting at .500 in the Big East going into the BE tourney and having to win a game.

    Check out our final 5 BE road games - Being completely realistic, 0-5 is a real possibility. 9-11 is also a real possibility overall, and that puts us right where we've been the past 3 years.

    Best scenario - 13-7 - 4-6 NCAA seed
    Likely - 10-10 - 8-11 NCAA seed, danger zone if we lose to the wrong teams
    Worst - 8-12 - out

    Wednesday is a HUGE game - have to hold serve at home, but Providence is very good.

    Lose to providence at home, and that makes things real interesting in terms of getting to .500 by the end of conference season. I think they will get it done, but going to be a tight one.
