I take no responsibility for them, but apologize none-the-less. All fan bases have such creatures, but it only gets worse when a team becomes dominant. Then every psychopath and sociopath sports jerk with even a tenuous connection to the institution becomes a "fan".

You'll be in my Sweet 16. Marshall has turned you guys into a powerhouse. You should be proud

Thanks. I believe the Shocks are worthy and able to get to 16 and perhaps beyond, depending on seeding and matchups.
I hope ISUr does get in, but I doubt the selection committee will be so inclined. If you do make it in, I'll be rooting for you to do the Valley proud. But if you go to the NIT, just freaking win the thing, or at least get to the Garden, it is a hell of a lot of fun if you do and winning it would be a definite shot in the arm for your team.

Yeah I'm hoping if we don't get in, they'll be motivated to prove the committee wrong in the NIT. There have been many cases where teams just shut it down when not getting into the dance. Lee truly deserves to be in.

Must be worth something, since you continually say you're putting me on ignore and keep responding to me.


You seriously are a pretty big hypocrite.

All of us are complex people. We aren't just what we see here on mvcfans, and probably most of us would like each other if we met socially.

I know that some of you have your minds made up that you don't like him and if that is true, turn the page and don't watch this video, but for those of you with open minds, this might show another side of him. My experiences with Gregg have been positive, and I think he has a lot of good qualities and I must admit, a few not as flattering. However, overall, he is a great guy. I know that there have been a couple of articles showing Gregg in a flattering light and I thought that this would show part of the motivational, competitive, and fun Gregg. From the times I have met with him, he has been great.

One of the more interesting and complimentary portions of the video is toward the end of the video when ISUR is coming up. "Give the people what they want". It shows the competitive side.

There are a lot of good videos on goshockers.com. This is one of the MVC Tournament videos that show the road through the tournament.

Go get em Shockers.

10th is BS. They are a 4 or a 5. Come on shocks kick some butt. Probably means ISU gets booted to the NIT.

As soon as the Shockers were at the 10 line, which is BS, I knew the Birds weren't getting in.
