I think that they will struggle to break out of the 7-9 range by the end of the season though for some odd reason I don't think they will end up dead last even though that's what my eyes tell me when I watch them play.


One poster on the UNI board begs to differ: they’re “much better than any other in the valley” and after making adjustments should “dispose of the rest of the valley like the trash heap they are”.

What a joke! I want to know what adjustments must be made to go from 0-5 to running away with the Valley. A new team?

Gotta talk Lebron into changing his name to "Klint Carlson" and suiting up as #2 for UNI.

If someone did say that, which I do no doubt, they are just stupid and wearing the fan goggles. But honestly, as bad as UNI has looked, I wouldn't be shocked if a month or so from now we look and they have turned it around and are like 9-6....wouldn't stun me one bit. I still think that team has talent and Jacobson has shown he can coach.

It appears there is just too much balance in this league for anyone to go on a 9-1 run, much less the team that's 0-5 so far and hasn't yet played Drake, Illinois State or Loyola, all of whom, in my opinion at least, have better material and if healthy, better depth than UNI.

Latest bracketology on ESPN has #15 Drake playing #2 Wichita State in the first round. This would be a definite set up match up that I could see happening no matter who gets the auto bid in the MVC.

Drake wins today 81-65 over Evansville. Nick McGlynn with 23 points and 9 rebounds. CJ Rivers with a double- double. Five Drake players in double figures. Taylor had 28 points for Evansville, great shooter.
