but it is nice to get some recognition on ESPN weekly watch:
Chicago (Friday-Saturday): The Chicago Invitational at UIC Pavilion has turned into a solid foursome. Depleted Northwestern could prove it isn't dead yet by beating Notre Dame. Iowa State is off to a solid start but so is Saint Louis. I wouldn't be surprised to see Iowa State win the event, although Notre Dame should be the favorite.
It's nice having some buzz around the team. This is another thing we can thank Craig for. He's the reason we're being talked about. Would Lucca have been mentioned in the column had CB not turned a few heads in our direction? Not sure, but we need to keep feeding this interest.
We SHOULD be getting votes at 4-0, we have the best power forward in the nation on our team....and we damn well be in the discussion. It would be big for GMac to finally have a nice positive event go for him....and thus, carry us nicely through the season. An early ranking for us will give our guys major confidence and an appetite to win the B12 this year. That is what I want....and I am sure that is what they are shooting for.
I thought we would be cracking the T25 just because of "Brackin's" name and the success that we have had IMO.
Really, I was just wanting a T25 match-up against ND on Saturday.....then beat them....and get some BIG national pub.
