    First Bball game one month from today.

    I don't care that it is just an exhibition game and the expectations for the season are not very high. I am looking foward to seeing the team out there together. I am really looking forward to seeing Ejim and the rest of the rookies for the first time.

    I hope we can sell out Hilton for the first game or at least have a good crowd.

    Re: First Bball game one month from today.

    Can players with the mandatory redshirt (Allen, White, Booker) play since its an exhibition? I remember Oliver played in an exhibition game even though he was redshirted.

    Thinking the same thing. We've got a car load that plans on making the 2 hour drive for it. I can't recall for sure, but I think that'll be the first exhibition game I'll be at since I was a student. I'm guessing it's there's going to be a very good crowd.

    That's not why it should be sold out. I remember someone saying Freddie's first game at Hilton would be a sell out.

    we could use the sellout for Drake.

    i'm looking forward to the basketball season...but not looking forward to CF and the typical reaction to losses during the season....

    Maybe we need a second countdown clock...

    I've thought it would be for quite a while. Whether I'm right or not, I don't know.

    I'd love to see my seat assignment soon. I'm anxious for the reality of basketball.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I'm curious to see how that plays out too. We all think its going to be a down year, but after some decent games against some cupcakes, I'm guessing optimism will rise. Then conference season comes, we start losing bad, and the meltdown threads will come.

    Re: First Bball game one month from today.

    The only way I will get mad at this team is if they aren't giving full effort. I'm expecting them to be bad this year, so them losing won't be unexpected.

    Re: First Bball game one month from today.

    So how many game difference in the win/loss column do you expect if White were actually able to play?
