I was at the last one there in person. Obi, TP, Ceola, Donnie Mac, and the rest of Mo's boys. Lost a low scoring game to the Aces, both team in the 40s.

See Obi is still going strong over in France:

Wont be there for this one. Have a meeting with our potential wedding officiant in a bit.

Was that the BracketBusters game a few years back?

Disappointing to drop this one since we actually had the lead with 1:26 left, but honestly, to lose by 4 to the team that took down #1 Kentucky three weeks ago is a lot better than I expected us to finish.

The wins aren't there but I'm impressed by the boys team this year. Losing these games to good schools will help us in the long run more so than beating a d3 or naia school by 55.
