" 'I see how it is.. When the grass is cut the snakes will show.. F.O.E (Family Over Everything) it’s ‘us’ against the world in my eyes.' ”

Anger issues? Better to beat them in the game, than in the parking lot.

Think he might be talking about fair weather fans and media writers cough Keegan cough not the game itself.

I thought Washington was the favorite for Chol.

Better to have a set back against K-State then that team from the East which I cannont bring myself to even mention. (what is black, yellow and blue? A tiger choking on Jello!)

the loss was perfect.....the only #1 that counts...is when the hawks hold up that trophy...

The Hawks are not the best team in the nation and will not win the title. But, they are so much better than I thought they would be. Three huge holes to fill from last year's team, and the holes have been plugged mainly from last year's roster. Only Selby is new to the team, and he has played in slightly more than half the games. Considering all of the unforeseen circumstances surrounding this year's team, the Hawks have played sensationally. It is such a fun team to watch and root for. Having said that, there are more talented teams.
