GCU has a lot of length at the Guard spot. I think they range from 6'4" - 6'7" and they are athletic. FAU was similar, though maybe a bit more skilled. Historically speaking though, we have struggled against teams like this, so I'm curious to see what happens. One thing is for sure, we need to shoot better from behind the arc than we have the past three games if we want to win this game.

I actually spoke with the person in charge of concessions at a football game. I was praising County Smoak and he agreed. I brought up the ‘Nacho Issue’ and he was surprised. Said it was an easy fix and would address it!

That's impressive! It's only taken 20+ years! You should work for the government.

Was wondering if I missed something specific and more recent. To your point you have been consistent about your displeasure with the nachos. I will try to be better :lol:

It’s been a running theme how bad the nachos are at LU. They were certainly neve FBS Ready. I think one hoops game it was a gag of chips and a cheese cup in a plastic nacho container

I'd argue they were never FCS ready :lol:

This game is on too early. I'm sure it's ESPN's decision but I don't like it. I doubt I'll be able to watch much.

High Schools have consistently better nachos

As for the game I’m sure it interferes with your afternoon nap!

It's Saturday. I have kids. I live in Texas now. They do extracurriculars at a whole different level. My afternoons are booked solid! They should have consulted with me prior to scheduling timing decisions being made :lol:

Yep, that's how they are served at the football games, too. You literally have to open your own little clear plastic bag of corn chips and then dip them in room temperature nacho cheese.

High Point never had a football team, but they always had the best nachos in the Big South Conference!

Expect man D from GCU. It's not out starting five, but our bench struggling in space against man. Expect Peebles to drive more, not enough space to get his shot off. No sure what RM does w/Shiloh, but it should be a different look altogether.

I did not know Bryce Drew was their HC!
GCU has a nice vocal and festively adorned cheering section
Lots of empty seats for a Sell out. But great energy

Great start so far but Cleveland is struggling. Rough start for him. Even more out of control than normal.
We look really good so far.

Yeah, about that good start….
Also, they might block 100 shots today.

They are so much more athletic than us. I like Richie’s teams but we need athletes.

Porter is missing an awful lot of foul shots this year.
