Belmont a “Dark Horse”

What about you?  What do you think?

  1. I’m having chemical flashbacks to last year. Belmont was a sexy pick over Wisconsin. That didn’t pan out.

  2. Blake Jenkins could be a hero in this game.

  3. I worry about the media overhyping Belmont as a trendy upset pick (as always) and it raising the pressure. I hope the boys can keep their focus this week with all the talk going on.

    However, I think if we can beat Georgetown, we can beat San Diego State in the next game.

    Belmont ’till I die!
