100% agree that it’s the Wichita State game that’s most important. If we win that we’ll likely have a second round matchup against a very good Purdue team and then a final game against another solid team, likely from a power 5 conference, regardless if we win or lose. If we lose to Wichita State well have a loss against another (likely unranked) “midmajor” and then probably two more games against opponents that won’t move the needle for the committee if we’re fortunate enough to be in contention for an at large bid.

He misspelled Duquesne throughout his paragraph about them. It's a hard word to spell correctly.

We learned to spell it in the days of the Nelson twins.

Not the best article if we’re being honest. Two examples: Duquesne is spelled wrong multiple times and he picked Holy Cross as URI’s biggest non con game.

Disclosure- he does Holy Cross radio or internet broadcasts. I'm sure others would likely pick Providence or another opponent, but he has his reason.

Just like New Mexico St. last year.

That arguably makes it worse; illustrates his clear inability to be unbiased.

He owns it.

Saturday December 8 – at Holy Cross – Somewhat of a bias here, considering I am a Holy Cross student and I will be the play-by-play announcer for this game

Owning a mistake doesn’t mean the actual mistake isn’t a mistake. I own that I got 1 question wrong on my Macro Review but at the end of the day my grade still shows I got 1 wrong on my Macro Review. A great article would pick URI’s most important Non-Con game objectively.

He did it in jest. It’s a blog.

Quoth the alligator: “Of course I did it in cold blood- I’m a reptile.”

With apologies to Gary Larson.

Still spelled Duquesne wrong 5 times.
