      $30,000? How much do the schools keep for these "charity" events? Either the schools are getting a nice payday for "hurricane relief" or virtually no one was interested in seeing Marquette play UW-M.

            For those that are getting the itch, UConn plays Providence tonight at 6 CST in a hurricane relief exhibition. Game will be streamed through Fox Sports Go, which you can access through your cable provider. The game is being played at a neutral site and rumor is they've almost sold-out.

              Interesting that neither the Springfield MO paper nor the report from GoPowwercat even mentioned attendance or the amount of money raised for hurricane relief -- which was supposedly the whole point of playing the game.

                      Their board is blaming the refs. lmao

                      Wouldn’t mind if their garbage fanbase had to deal with a one-way ticket to the abyss.

                              I don't think I would count on that score to mean a whole lot by the time the Sooners hit Wichita. I am thinking they will pull it together by then and give us a real good workout. Just so long as it's a *workout* and not a *working over*, it'll be real fun.
