      That was fast! Good job ShockCity!


      Now for some craziness...

      So what's with the eleven's???

      Maybe it has something to do with the Shockers starting the regular season on Nov. 11. 11/11 lol

      So the Shockers dispatch two previous years #11 seeds in back to back games right.

      WSU beat George Mason who name has 11 letters in it.
      G-E-O-R-G-E M-A-S-O-N

      WSU then beat Louisiana St. who name also has 11 letters in it.
      L-O-U-I-S-I-A-N-A S-T.

      Eleven days after beating George Mason who's name has 11 letters in it,
      and was a #11 seed last year, the Shockers will play UMKC on Channel 22.
      Add 11 and 11 = 22.
      Sorry - that was a reach. lol


      So what's with the elevens?

      I dunno...maybe that will be our new AP ranking after WSU beats
      Syracuse in the C-A-R-R-I-E-R D-O-M-E. Ha-ha!

      Oh also...did you know that after the MVC completes its Championship Game
      at A-R-C-H M-A-D-N-E-S-S...the NCAA Tournament starts exactly 11 days later.

      So the real question is...
      Will the G-E-O-R-G-I-A D-O-M-E host our beloved
      M-A-R-K T-U-R-G-E-O-N led
      W-S-U S-H-O-C-K-E-R-S
      in the '0-7 F-I-N-A-L F-O-U-R ?!?

      C'mon 11's! Work for us!!! :clap:

                Mike Kennedy and Terrell Benton

                I try not to post any more now that I'm doing the radio, but this is too funny.

                Mike and I stayed in room 1111 at the Marriott in Baton Rouge and talked about how 1111 is supposed to be lucky.

                CRAZY!!

                      Arch Madness is the marketing moniker for the Valley tournament, which is held in St. Louis.

                        Arch Madness is the Missouri Valley Tournement. It is called that because it is in St. Louis with the Gateway Arch.

                          M-I-K-E K-E-N-N-E-D-Y (11 letters - geez)
                          Wow! Room 1111. Cool!

                          That reminds me...I took a flight home from Las Vegas on 11/11 a couple weeks ago where I stayed at the Orleans Hotel where the Shockers will be playing next month on the 22nd (11+11=22) and where I bought my Las Vegas Shocker game ticket. lol

                              Ah, that makes sense. And I can't believe you forgot the obvious:
