Here is the prediction thread for the Robert Morris game.
I hope they win by 30 and go as deep as possible if a few of these guys are coming back. If not, I hope they lose to RMU and end this ____.
Robert morris 60/UK 48.
UK = who
RM = cares?
We appreciate the use of Yum center 2 for our first games :). Thanks Johnny!
UK----76 Robert Morris----60
Robert Morris 58
This could end in humiliating fashion. If they don't show up this Robert Morris team could hand them a double-digit loss.
UK 71 RM 52
UK 85 RM 60 UK will do well enough and are too talented to lose this game at least I think so. What time do they play tomorrow night?
