    Really? Getting congress involved? What could possibly go wrong?

    Yes, I have seen them top 5 in pretty much every pre season ranking.

    And X got the sweep last year with Steele at the helm. What does this say about our potential?

    They lost 2 starters. We lost 2 starters. They get the Summit League POY. We get the C-USA POY, which is a far better conference.

    Looks like a push to me.
