These guys are shooting on fire tonight. Down 63-33 at the half. Might be time to cry UNCLE and save the energy for Saturday.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

Denver beat ORU 100-96 last week in Denver. It could not have been this same ORU team.

The only positive I walk away with tonight is that Pyle seems to have found his stroke again.

We will need him again Saturday.

I may be totally wrong but it just maybe that this group has finally run out of "emotional" gas. ;) jc
